Iím feeling YARDIES. Iíve read over
50 urban fiction books and they all sound the same. Yardies is
in a class by itself. You wonít be able to say been there read
that. This urban fiction is fresh. I canít wait for the movie.
This book is for those who love
drama and gun play, it is as simple as that. If you love the
Godfather I, if you love Scarface, if you love Menace to
Society, then youíll definitely love YARDIES. It is simple as
My only problem with Yardies is that
it had to end, so I read it 3 times. I hear thereís a Yardies II
in the works, put me first on the mailing list.
I thought Dutch was good but I read
YARDIES and it blew me away. Yardies upped the ante in Urban
Fiction. This book is fire.
YARDIES is the one urban fiction I

YARDIES: A tremendously good book,
one will not put it down after the 1st chapter. Some
of yardies unspeakable actions capture the true drug culture of
the drug life, proving one going like lightening will crash like
thunder. Yardie has a human side to him and I canít wait to see
the return of Yardie from his homeless predicament.

making of a Jamaican Posse was excellent; the descriptive
painting of words brought the book to life from the first page
to the last. The mix of emotions, the ups and downs, good and
bad, negatives and positives leaves you emotionally unbalanced,
trying hard to compose yourself. It takes you through a journey
that feels very real and empowering; you live through Richie and
his experiences effects you the same; they break you down then
build you up, leaving you much wiser than before. Iím waiting for

Yardies the making of a Jamaican
Posse is a book you will enjoy. Learn to understand what drives
the youth of today to make the choices they do. Choosing the
mean streets over classroom; risking life itself for fast cars,
women, flashy jewelry and clothes. Learn why their concept of
reverence and respect is gained through fear and intimidation.
You will feel riveted to this story as you journey with Richie
and share in his wretched encounters with death and
YARDIES: The making of a Jamaican Posse by Prince Kofi.
Rarely have I been so captivated by an Urban novel. Yardies is
truly something special. The twists and turns of the intricate
plot force you to keep the book in your hand. At times I held my
breath and prayed nothing would disturb me before I turned the
next page. Talk about being on the edge of your seat, I
was living the drama through the words of Price Kofi. Not only
was this book written in the authentic Jamaican patios but the
author introduces us to exotic words and a poeticism that
harkens back to Shakespeare. Even in the midst of the violence
one cannot help but fall in love with Rude Boy Richie. I found
myself shamefully rooting for this bad boy. I'm only glad this
is a work of fiction but it sure felt real I agree
