    • **Contains spoilers**Several days have passed since finishing this book and I've been thinking about it. There were funny moments like when one of the characters kept saying, "Auwe" about the things happening in Hawaii. All the locals know who that guy is. Actually I think the whole book was funny in an off-kilter, offensive-on-purpose sort of way. I think. I can't be sure because the downside of it, in my opinion, is that it was overwritten. So much extra bloat that took away from the story. Li [...]


    • Boi No Good takes an unflinching look at a Hawaii that locals live in everyday and tourists never see. It’s gritty, real, and not for the faint of heart. McKinney’s characters are people I feel I know and grew up with, from the welfare ice queens to the keep Hawaiian lands in Hawaiian hands revolutionists, to the wanna be good but no can boyz to the Kahala private school we can make a difference politicians, he's nailed them all.I'm always amazed at the difference between the real Hawaii and [...]


    • this damned book pissed me off and broke my heart. The author wrote about people I know, and people I could have wound up becoming. The high and the low makamaka are showcased and I found myself judging every character. He wrote about nothing new and he did so very well. I want my grown children to read it. If you buy it in paperback, and not on a kindle, your copy will walk away from you, and zing the heart of the next reader


    • McKinney is too good at showing the very dark side of Hawaiʻi. The crime, the poverty and especially the despair -- away from the sun, the sea and the aloha.


    • I was about to give this book 5 stars because it really drew me in, but the last 100 pages dragged on a bit, and the editing/proofreading of the book was sloppy - too many mistakes - which I find a major nuisance.


    • Wow, Wow, Wow well written; such clear character descriptions. This is the first of Chris McKinney's books that I've read and I am so glad I found Mililani Mauka (one of his other books) in the Used Book Store @ Pearlridge Mall while I was visiting Oahu in 2012. Had I not found that title, I would never have found this one. I lived in Hawaii for 3 years during the early 80's and I spend time there with cherished friends each year. Having said that, this is the first book I've read about Hawaii t [...]


    • The problem with Hawaii is the people says wrong-side-of-the-tracks protagonist Boi No Good at one stage in this novel. This award winning picaresque novel which leans to the noir side, would make a great discussion subject. "The problem with Hawaii is the people. Discuss."The dark side of contemporary hawaii with its violence, drugs and corruption has been handled in a number of mysteries and thriller. Chris Mckinney, however, brings us a different kind of novel: a social critique which is also [...]


    • This book is about the dark side of Oahu, methamphetamine addiction, the foster system, politics and bribery, racial stereotypes and prejudices, murder, and the excesses of private-schooled wealthy children. It's a page turner from the beginning. The local characters are so real I think I know some of them in real life. The story follows three siblings who were separated by the foster system after horrific abuse by their mother. The manapua philosophy was hilariously accurate. I gave it four sta [...]


    • Well I am feeling like an asshole about going to Hawaii for my honeymoon. Hella good and raw book about colonial impact.


    • Oahu seems to be an island overrun by rich white people who want their own slice of paradise, and Boi Rapun is fed up with it.
