Dog Eat Dog PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Dog Eat Dog free pdf Dingz is an average Wits student - struggling with money, partying with his friends, picking up girls, skipping lectures, making up elaborate excuses for missing exams. A bright, articulate guy, Dingz and his circle of friends sit around drinking and discussing current affairs - Aids, racism, South African politics and history - in between being kidnapped by taxi-drivers, contracting gonorrhoea and trying to fake a death certificate. This is an authentic, witty slice-of-life set at the time of the first democratic elections, full of interesting perceptions and vivid descriptions, and well-drawn and believable characters. All in all, an exciting manuscript and a lively read- the narrator has a humorous, wry voice, perceptive and cynical. A glimpse into the lives of the "kwaito generation", both in the township and on campus.
