5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book!!!!!, August 15, 2014This review is from: Abandoned Property: The Eviction Chronicles Part 2 (Volume 2) (Paperback)This is one of the best books I have read, no matter who you are male, female, or what your sexual preference is we all have the same struggles: relationship, family and even religion. I honestly love this book, there is a lot of great philosophy in this book that I can relate to, it makes you really think and put things in to perspective. We all have went through some type of Abandoned Property!!!!4.0 out of 5 stars AAMBC Book Reviews, April 7, 2014Abandoned Property serves as the backstory to Kai Mann’s debut novel, 30-Day Notice. The book follows seven characters through their personal journeys of discovery as they deal with their individual abandonment issues.
From facing fatherhood as a gay man to a lesbian who chooses to leave her children behind as she comes to terms with her sexuality, Mann shows how each character learns to accept their relationship roles.
Kori Maitland is their common thread, and her soft-spoken charm impacts the life of all those she comes in contact with. During a speaking engagement, Kori summarizes the book’s premise rather nicely. “I know you haven’t asked me, but if you did, I’d tell you that I believe that before I am a lesbian living in a straight world that I am a God loving woman living in an ungodly world,” she said.
Abandoned Property was very interesting and will help readers gain a better understanding of the inner turmoil and outer discrimination many must face due to their sexual preferences. There were some grammatical errors throughout the book, but the flow of the story is not interrupted.
In my opinion, the ending felt a little rushed and took away from the book’s fluidity. It jumped from Abandoned Property’s storyline to explaining situations only covered in 30-Day Notice, and may be confusing to anyone who did not read 30-Day Notice first. Overall, the book was enjoyable and I await the next installment in The Eviction Chronicles series.

I enjoyed reading this book. I like the philosophy (Jay)…you have to do you and let people do them. Everyone’s life is a blessing. We all go through trials and tribulations…gay or straight. This is a good read.
I found the characters to be very relatable. i loved some, saw myself in others, saw women I know or have dated in a few. I read the book in a day I was unable to put it down. I genuinely wanted to know what was going to happen next, the plots are well written and unpredictable. The stories happen to talk about women who are lesbians but the issues ( love, loss of love, friendships, betrayals of the cruelest nature, human endurance, faith) transcend lines of gender and orientation. Must read.
I read this on ibook and I recommend it to anyone who is struggling, curious or is just concerned about life. It’s not just for Gay people. But what i like is that the author portrays the lives of Same Gender Loving people as experiencing the same “normal” problems and life situations as any other human being. Kai Mann is sure to be an author that can deliver the literary goods that will keep anyone coming back for more. GET THE BOOK!

I loved this book! Kai portrays real life events from different perspectives from the lives of these same gender loving people. I read it on the sands of Cancun Mexico couldn’t put it down. This book shows the fear and the courage of those who dared to live in the full truth of their lives as well as the consequences of the hard decisions that it took to live in truth. The book wonderfully unfolds as each character is woven in and out of each others lives. It presents the joys’ and atrocities that finally reveal life purpose through pain, success and uncertainty for sure. I loved it!
