This book is 232 pages. I can normally read such a short book in one day but I've been struggling for 8 days to finish.

The Plot line is strong and though several years have passed and much has changed, Hardy keeps the reader up to date with out too many flashbacks and too many unreasonable plot changes. This book is 232 pages. I've read 3 of James Earl Hardy's previous novels; "B-Boy Blues", "2nd Time Around" and "If Only For One Nite". A House Is Not A Home" is by far the worst.

In this final chapter in James Earl Hardy's groundbreaking B-Boy Blues series, Mitchell "Little Bit" Crawford and Raheim "Pooquie" Rivers are all grown up. Mitchell is a stay-at-home dad renovating his dream house, writing, and raising his godson and half-sister in Brooklyn's up-and-coming Fort Greene neighborhood. He's fairly happy, but he can't help feeling that something -- or someone -- is missing from his life.

Fresh from rehab for a gambling addiction, Raheim has a new lease on life, but it's precarious -- his career as an actor has stalled, he hasn't seen his son in years, and the short-lived sexual trysts that punctuated his life no longer satisfy him. Hell-bent on change, Raheim has finally figured out who he wants to be with forever. But will Mitchell give Raheim the second chance he so desperately wants?

Seriously, WHERE IS IT? If this is supposed to be the finale of the series, why does it end on a frigging CLIFF HANGER?!

Don't do what I did. Don't buy this book because it'll just make you angry. Just save your dough and live with the fact that we'll never know if Little Bit and Pooquie ever get back together.

I feel like he just gave up towards the end. It's like he didn't really even put much effort it. None of the novels come close to the debut.

James Earl Hardy completes his B Boy Series with this, the sixth and final installment and I ferel complete that I know how the love story went down, but I wish I knew more.

The Plot line is strong and though several years have passed and much has changed, Hardy keeps the reader up to date with out too many flashbacks and too many unreasonable plot changes. The final installment is laid back and mature and up to date, but you are left wondering.....are Mitchell and Raheim really back together, forever......

Still a must have to complete the series!

I must agree with the reviews of Perri Litton, Kevin Lee, and P. Wilson. This book is extremely boring. I'm halfway through the book. It's painful to try to finish. I paid money for this book. That is the only reason I haven't put the book back on the book shelf. This book is 232 pages. I can normally read such a short book in one day but I've been struggling for 8 days to finish.

I've read 3 of James Earl Hardy's previous novels; "B-Boy Blues", "2nd Time Around" and "If Only For One Nite". "A House Is Not A Home" is by far the worst.

I was hoping that it would get better as I go along. I lost hope when I read the reviews. If you MUST read this book, check it out from the library.

While I purchased the book the day it came out, I just finished reading it tonight. It took me a week (it's touted as the last in the series, so I had to take it way slow). I wasn't a big fan of the last three books, especially Love The One You're With (the sex was off-the-chain but I think JEH over-did it on the political stuff). But with A House, I now appreciate the approach JEH took with the other novels: he connects the dots so well and you understand why the different stories went in the directions and explored the issues they did. Not only have the characters grown, so has JEH: there is a maturity and depth expressed in this book that is only hinted at in the other five. He gets at the distinct complexity of and ordinaryness of our lives without being melodramatic or overly-sentimental, which makes the claim by some that the series isn't `real' or a `fairytale' ridiculous. We're not all trolling DL websites or living in the clubs every weekend; many of us (like myself) are in committed relationships, raising children, trying to provide a home for ourselves and our families. I commend JEH for showing black men as the caring and compassionate fathers, brothers, sons, lovers we are. And while I, at first, was also disappointed that it isn't clear whether Mitch and Raheim get back together, I'm glad we don't know; such a reunion wasn't going to happen overnight, and if it did the ending would've been too pat. You are left with the hope that it will happen, and JEH's nod to Luther in the next to last chapter seals that deal for me.

JEH, you did the clan proud and you did us proud. I laughed way out loud, raged against and with Pooquie and Lil Bit, and cried both tears of sorrow and joy. Thanks for the ride. I can't wait to see what you'll do next.
I just want to say Hardy you did it up with the series, so sorry it had to end but the finally was very good. I loved every moment of it, I just wish it was longer but it was great and I could envision them all being grown and in the 2005. I loved this book, I just wish it didn't end but overall great book. For all who are looking at this make sure u get the complete series before you get this.
