The narration is fantastic, the writing style is a bit unconventional. At first it's difficult to follow until the reader understands it is non-linear and quickly jumps from scene to scene. It might initially be easier to follow in print, but the tone of narrator brings it to life.
The plot is as twisted as it gets and the dialog is hip and funny. Once the reader begins to understand the interconnection of past and present it becomes extremely compelling.
The opening scene had me hooked immediately. The three main characters are believable and likable although far from the norm.
Most of all I laughed. The use of acronyms as a form of unique communication between the three friends cracked me up. It challenged me to pay close attention to the dialog, because the author also uses acronyms with other characters throughout.
Don Winslow is a genius. His sense of place and characterization is a good as it gets. Holter Graham lends a particularly sardonic tone that illuminates Winslow's characters in a way that might be missed in print. This genre is new to me, but I'm hooked and cannot wait to begin "Savages."
Started a little slow and I wasn't sure I was going to finish it. It jumped around a lot but it turned out to be an excellent listen. I will listen to it again latter on.
Yes but it jumped around a lot
Really enjoyed the fun story mostly because of Holter Grahams delivery. My objection was that the book read like a screen play with over 300 chapter markers including scene setups. Seems a bit lazy on Winslow's part as if he didn't want to do a rewrite for the movie.
I enjoy good sci-fi and fantasy books. I also enjoy listening to Mysteries and Business marketing.
It was semi predictable but the dialogue was good.
It was fun throughout.
He definitely brought the book to life.
