I am a lover of books and I love reading books by up and coming authors. Imagine my surprise when I found out one of my co-workers wrote a book. His name is Quincy Lucas. And because I am a big supporter of people following their dreams, I immediately went to Amazon and downloaded the eBook.
The title of the book is “Clout” and it’s a short read. This book is different from most books I’ve read because it is written as a play. To be honest, it kind of threw me off in the beginning because I am used to novels. The setting, for the book, is the music industry. The lead, Adrian “Hits” Barrow, is a former MC turned “hero”. Right off, one of the characters is murdered by someone he thought he could trust. Adrian is hired to find the bad guy but he has a story of his own, which leaves the reader wondering, is he really a good guy.
The book starts off kind of slow. The dialogue, between the characters, is short and the reader doesn’t see much development of the characters until the end. As the story develops and the protagonist is introduced, the reader gets a better understanding of what the book is really about. I wish the author would have given more background on the characters, closer to the beginning, to draw the reader in more. The writing style is confusing at first, but I really enjoyed the story.
