1.0 su 5 stelle I ALREADY READ HIS BOOKS! 25 agosto 2003
Di Un cliente - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile
THIS BOOK HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH THE LIFE OF DONALD GOINES. THE BOOK GAVE SUMMARIES OF ALL HIS BOOKS. THIS BOOK DID GIVE YOU AN IDEA OF HOW HE GREW UP AND HOW HE WAS KILLED. OTHER THAN THAT THE BOOK WAS JUST GIVING YOU SUMMARIES OF HIS BOOKS. MAYBE THE PERSON WHO WROTE THIS BOOK SHOULD HAVE KNEW ENOUGH ABOUT DONALD GOINES TO WRITE ABOUT HIM. THE BOOK DID NOT TELL WHAT HAPPENED TO HIS KIDS AFTER HIM AND HIS WIFE WERE KILLED. THE BOOK DID NOT TELL WHAT HAPPENED TO HIS MOTHER OR SISTERS. I JUST THINK SOMEONE ELSE NEED TO GIVE US A BIOGRAPHY OF THE BEST AUTHOR EVER!

5.0 su 5 stelle treated with dignity 20 luglio 2001
Di Kirk Alex - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile
Mr. Stone does a fine job here. I had read some of Donald Goines' books more than a decade ago (when I could find them) and thought they were brutal, but truthful--and that's what we want from our literature, at least I do; I like the truth and stay clear of b.s. I'm a white dude by the way, and to me skin color does not matter; what matters is the quality of the writing, the quality of the art--and Donald Goines had it and Mr. Stone has it. I always wondered about the author of Dopefiend, Inner City Hoodlum and other titles; who was he and what happened to him? Why was he silenced and who was behind his murder? Well, we still do not know who killed this talented writer, but at least now with Eddie Stone's effort DONALD WRITES NO MORE we know where Donald Goines came from and what he was about. Writing, as for many others, was the light at the end of that dark tunnel for him and may have eventually pulled him through...and now, because he was murdered, we'll never know...but at least we have his books and Eddie Stones' biography of the man. Highly recommend it to anyone who can appreciate the works of Donald Goines and well-written biographies. We are grateful to Holloway House for standing behind these guys, as well others like Odie Hawkins and Iceberg Slim. They saw value in what these writers had to say long before the majority of the people in the U.S. ever did, although quite a few readers appear to be finally catching on--and we're happy about that!

2.0 su 5 stelle This is nothing but a review of his work! Not his life 5 novembre 2001
Di Un cliente - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile
This book was poorly written with more input from the deceased. Stone fails to capture the life of Mr. Goines, he goes into a brief description of his fathers history, he only touches on the disintegration of his family because of his drugs, but fails to show why he keeps such a strong sense of family. He never touches on his relationships with family members, he constantly goes on tangents losing you with his personal opinions that he associates with different excerpts from different books written by Goines, that in turn make unneccesary paragraphs. He dedicates almost nothing to his wife or many children he has with different women, consequently he never even mentions his many encounters with women but at the end of the book he just casually mentions his other children. Stone down plays the different characters who shaped his life and his habit. He only goes into depth about several pimping incidents Goines runs into during his life. This book was horrible and grossly misleading for an biography and I hope Mr. Stone stays far away from destroying anyone elses biography.

2.0 su 5 stelle In-House Bio, Only So-So 19 agosto 2007
Di K. N. - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile
This is a very ordinary in-house biography of the legendary street writer Donald Goines. The book came out shortly after Goines's death (in 1974) and was commissioned by his very own publisher (Holloway House), likely as a means of capitalizing on their star author's underground fame.

Some corporate bias is evident here, with the biographer Eddie Stone extolling Holloway House's role in Goines's life. Moreover, Stone's glossing of each novel's plot can get tiresome -- it's like having to listen to a high-school book report on Kenyatta when in fact you'd rather just read about Kenyatta himself.

Check out Eddie Allen's more recent Low Road (2004) for a far more balanced account of Goines's life.
