He will soon learn that this hit is not at all what it really looks like. Has fate finally caught up with Mustafa and Dani? Is the saying true that there is no loyalty among thieves?
Mustafa’s Game by The G is an intriguing tale. This book did not come across as the usual drug dealing street tale. The author told a good underdog story and gave just enough details to get his point across. While reading Mustafa’s Game, I constantly rooted for the underdog. Even though some may not see Mustafa as an underdog, I considered him an underdog because he did not portray the lifestyle of so many around him. There were grammatical errors that were hard for the reviewer to overlook. There were also areas within the book in which the story did not flow efficiently, causing me to read over those areas multiple times. Some of the characters that seemed to play a major role in the book were not fully developed. I felt that I didn't know them and could not relate to them. The reviewer would be willing to read another book by this author in order to see his growth as a writer and an author.
