Preppy: The Life & Death of Samuel Clearwater, Part One by T.M. Frazier
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
We first meet Preppy, aka Samuel Clearwater, in the first book of the King Series and in that book he struck me as a sociopath, with only two people in the world that he cared about, King and Bear.
On a side note, if you haven't read the first four books in the series, stop right here and go download, King, trust me when I say you’ll get more enjoyment out of this book if you know more about Preppy, because you’ve got to build up your tolerance for Mr. Clearwater.
As the series builds you come to think of Preppy as the lovable sociopath, but still a sociopath nonetheless. This the fifth book in the series puts all the puzzle pieces on the table and I can’t wait to see what the finished picture looks like!
Andrea “Dre” Capulet is a strung out junkie and when her “boyfriend” decides to uproot and abscond with Preppy’s marijuana growing operation things don’t go well for either one of them and when Dre is at the end of her rope and decides to end it all, Preppy surprises even himself by saving her. This story is about how two terribly broken people use each other to hold on to their humanity.
This seven plus hour audiobook ranks right up there with the first two books in the series, it’s a fantastic listen! The dual narration by Lance Greenfield and Kirsten Leigh was perfection, they both conveyed the right amount of emotion and that’s saying a lot because this book deals with some pretty weighty subject matter and is sexually explicit. The production quality was top notch.
It’s a cliffhanger, but it tied things up nicely and leaves us with just enough of a teaser. I’m looking forward to the final book in the Preppy story.
