Publisher's Summary

Life is supposed to be easy and carefree when you are young, but if you live in Washington, DC, that's not always the case.
Flashing back to the 1990s, listeners 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: They are trying to make fast money in the harsh inner city. However, when the money comes too easily, there's usually a price attached...the ultimate price.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

This story lacked the UMPH that Omar Tyree is famous for. This story did not do it for me.

What was most disappointing about Omar Tyree’s story?

The story-line. 2 hours in & I knew this was going to be a long 12 hours. It just didn't do it for me.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of the narrators?

IDK if a different narrator(s) wouldv'e done it. It just was boring.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

What disappointed you about Capital City?

There's no real direction.

Any additional comments?

This book is long, boring, drawn out and lacks direction. I'm disappointed because I'm usually a fan of Omar Tyree's books. I couldn't get past the first hour of this 13 hour book.
