    1. When a prostitute asks the author if he s lost, and he alleges to reply, no than most, the problem of the book starts to sound is name insecurity Did the author really say such a snappy, written sounding line to one of his interview subjects Maybe, but it doesn t really matter What matters is that the author feels the need periodically to remind us by waving both of his arms and stamping his feet that he is still there and wants some attention In the context of interviewing the residents of a w [...]

    2. The average tourist vacationing at Bellagio or Mandalay Bay may not leave Las Vegas Boulevard for the entirety of his or her trip Most downtown visitors are not likely to venture beyond the magical canopy of the Fremont Street Experience Luckily for these folks, Vegas resident Matt O Brien has written this excellent montage of gritty real life stories to provide a glimpse into corners of the city they probably hadn t previously considered.An eye opening piece on the disruption faced by families [...]

    3. As someone who s going to Vegas for the first time this year, I wanted to dig behind the glamour and bright lights that you see in the movies and on TV I wanted to find out about the real Las Vegas, about what happens behind the scenes, and about the people who make it their home.My Week at the Blue Angel doesn t disappoint O Brien goes in search of the the down and out, the lost, the homeless, and the outright weird To many, this could read as poverty porn but, by the final chapter, you realise [...]

    4. This book gave me a look into the Other side of Las Vegas where everything is not all GLITZ AND GLAMOUR It shows that Las Vegas is a city like any others but there is a uniqueness to it I would recommend this book to anyone who has every visited Vegas or currently lives in Vegas or ever wants to visit Vegas so you can see that there is to the city than the Neon Lights of the Stip.

    5. I am looking forward to books by Matthew O Brien I enjoyed his Beneath the Neon and absolutely delighted in this one It is a joy to read about places in Las Vegas that I knew about, or that my husband knew about he was born here in 1950 Great stories whether you live here or not.

    6. a beautiful collection of Americana I love Vegas This book is a stunning look at the soul of the city Investigative journalism at its best I highly recommend this read if you are the type of person that needs to look behind the curtain.

    7. Excellent book Exposes the reader to a side of Las Vegas most people never see The stories are all interesting, while at the same time some are sad and some are funny.

    8. I had high hopes for this book, primarily because it s by a local author Unfortunately the writing is what you might expect to find in a college newspaper and sometimes, worse.

    9. Really interesting look at some really OFF STRIP sections of Las Vegas and the interesting characters that make up the area Looking forward to reading of O Brien s work

    10. Great Vegas readingsurprisingly good book the author keeps us updated at the end of the books about the subjects he follows and interviews
