Book Overview

Life is supposed to be easy and carefree when you are young - but if you live in Washington D.C. it's anything but. Flashing back to the 1990s, readers enter the lives of four black men looking to gain money, power and respect. These four brothas come from different walks of life but they have one thing in common: making fast money in the harsh inner city. However, when the money comes too easily there's usually a price attached...the ultimate price...

THIS BOOK IS AN EXCELLENT READ. MOST PEOPLE MAY HAVE READ THIS BOOK WHEN IT AS CAPITAL CITY IN 1993, BUT FOR NEW COMERS IT IS NOW KNOWN AS THE UNDERGROUND.....

AND WES- JUST A COLLEGE BOY WHO TAKES A JOB WITH BUTTERMAN.....READ THIS BOOK AND TAKE A LOOK AT HOW D.C. LIFE IS AND WHAT ADVENTAGES THIS KIDS GO ON FOR THE ALMIGHTY DOLLAR.....

Keeping It Real

The setting of this book was in Washington, D.C. which is my hometown so I could really relate to the streetlife ordeals that occur to characters in this versatile book. Omar keeps it real with the situations of the drug game and how it affects us. His characters are witty and urban at the same time. This is the most interesting book I've read.

Didn't want it to end

Omar Tyree did it again with capitalcity, it was so good, and funny. The characther shank was my favorite, he was so funny, yet he was also smart. Butterman was the prettyboy in the book, and Wes was the college guy that handle things for butterman. Capital city is the story of drug dealing, and also college life.

Once you start you can't stop

I read this book before and really liked it. Then, one day I was going to let my friend read it so I just wanted to read the character intros so I could remember what it was about. Do you know I had to read the whole book? This is the best Omar Tyree book I have read. You get sucked in from the first page and can't put it down until you are finished. I highly recommend this book.

Capital City was a true to life story.

Capital City was like a nonfiction novel. It tells the story of so many young black males trying to make money the easy way in the nineties, but the characters in this book find out the hard way that you must earn a living because nothing in life is too easy.
