    1. I read this book in one sitting. It flowed from one character to the next with easy precision. I have nothing negative to say. I really cared what happened to these players in the game of life which we all must go through. Sometimes winning, sometimes losing, and sometimes being a bystander, watching everything pass you by. I'm really glad I took the time to read Looker. It ends on a romantic note, but is in general about the relationships surrounding these characters. Recommended as a really go [...]

    2. This was a really good read. Fast paced, interesting, unexpected twists, relatable characters, life lessons and socially aware messages without being "preachy", fun, and best of all DRAMA DRAMA AND MORE DRAMA (lol). I even found myself laughing out loud while reading some of the more humorous parts.I would recommend this book to everyone who fell in love with the books of E. Lynn Harris. Although author Stanley Bennett Clay has some distinct writing differences from Mr. Harris, they both write f [...]

    3. In a class by himselfMy love affair with Stanley Bennett Clay began with In Search of Pretty Young Black Men--his steamy tale of a beautiful hustler driving the residents of a wealthy black enclave to murderous distraction. His latest novel, Looker, has all the raw eroticism of its predecessor, with even more heart. Brandon Heywood and Omar Stevens were the best of friends since childhood. Brando is a handsome, popular, and successful entertainment lawyer; a man whose seemingly idyllic life lack [...]

    4. LOOKER: The Title Suggests a Kaleidoscope of Meanings in this Enthralling NovelStanley Bennett Clay takes chances: he knows he takes them and unlike Captain Scott's diaries from 1912 as he lay dying in the Antarctic in which he admits the chances turned out against him, the chances Clay takes work very much in his favor. Now with this third novel Stanley Bennett Clay shows a maturity of style and focus without a loss of the chancy topics he embraces. LOOKER simply works!Clay introduces a huge ca [...]

    7. A current Lambda award winner, this book surprised me. It reminded me of E. Lynn Harris' novels -- self consciously set in African American urban culture, focused on the erotic aspects of intimate relationships, materialistic and stereotypical in its descriptions. But I ended up liking this one much more than I do Harris' books. There are lots of fairly well written steamy sex scenes, mostly between men but some involving women. But the plot takes the story to a fairly sophistocated level. It ex [...]

    8. I am enjoying Stanley's latest work. I know him from a men's group we are both members of. I enjoy that fact that he is a local author (Los Angeles), so I can relate to the geography that he details. This helps to put me in the story. It has also continued my education about black gay men, a group which I am apart of.

    9. Looker was a bit different than I expected, still, it was magnificently written. Each chapter was no more than five pages, but each storyline was completely developed and the characters were extremely varied and diverse. Stanley Bennett Clay did an excellent job.

    10. This book was an excellent book. The amount of characters was more then I'm use to, but the fact they they all had their own character was perfect. The book brought tears to my eyes.

    11. 1☆This story was just not for me it has too many things I hate in it ;all the "Bi" men were cheating on their wives who know about it one of them even helps her man with it so she can have some decent sloppy seconds from her own husband , the different Pov's of the secondary characters I just couldn't keep up it was more like a soap with all the tragic deaths and drama and Selma omg what she did to Brando *ugh I can't even nope this was not my cuppa(I think what happend in this story is what m [...]

    12. Reading the glowing reviews of many was the reason I selected this book for my book club read. Even though I liked it, I was expecting a little more. I found it just a bit lacking. The characters were solid, but some of the story seemed over done or under done in a few places. Regardless it still was a good read.

    13. I found this book formulaic and disappointing. If it's going to be formulaic, then give me more to be stimulated byke hot sex or an evil conflict.

    14. I would have liked more emphasis on the romance between Omar and Brando, but sometimes, things are there for everybody to see and there is no need to add anything.

    15. It was a wonderful book, very interesting. Its based in L.A. and it deals with homosexulaity, love and relationships
