    1. This is the first book that I've read just because I wanted to read it. In other words, there was no teacher involved. I was in my first year of the Navy and stranded out sea. I wanted something to past the time so I picked up this book. After Hours was partly based on the movie, Carlito's Way. I think that the story was based in 1950's New York-- back when New York was still a "real" city. I really liked the colorful street language in this book. I found it to be poetic.

    2. The prequel to this book (Carlito's Way) is published entirely through the first person narration of the title charachter: Carlito Brigante' It's enticing, the spelling is not always correct and boy does the charachter like to chase women. His honorable Judge Edwin Torres wouldn't want the reader to believe that he himself was nothing more than a degenerate barely literate street hood who can publish a poorly written trash novel just because he himself is a minority and some people like to read [...]

    3. Brilliant. The first-person narrative voice of Carlito Brigante is superbly realised and meshes well with the sections that feature the Kleinfelds and other characters. Although it follows a similar arc to the film, there are enough changes to keep the novel from feeling stale when compared with the movie (and vice-versa).
