I am a voracious reader given the opportunity and can usually find some value in any book. I think there are only 3 books I never finished.

    Hollywood. Saturday night. A broken taillight leads to a routine traffic stop. It shouldn’t have changed the lives of the four men involved, but it did. The Onion Field is the frighteningly true story of a fatal collision of destinies that would lead two young cops and two young robbers to a deserted field on the outskirts of Los Angeles, towards a bizarre execution and its terrible aftermath.

    Story
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Better suited to someone who enjoys details of how someone's life has led them to this point.


    Has The Onion Field turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No I will still try other books in this genre.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    The narrator was fine.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Onion Field?

    I find the minutiae excruciating to read and would prefer more action


    Any additional comments?

    I got about half way before I gave up and still there was no onion field!
