100 Must-Read Thrillers (International Thriller Writers)
I saw the movie many years ago, enjoyed it immensley; pure escapism. The book on the other hand was, in my view the ultimate bore. In real terms nothing happened as his goes to the core message ( as I recall critiques of the time noted an apprent concern with crime and what was percieved to be the apparent lack of punishment as this applied to perpertratores in cities generally and New york in particular) until two thirds of the ay through. The naratater did his best and to some extent made the last 50-60 minutes interesting and more in keeping with the message I suggest was that intended. On the whole I'm sorry I bought this book.
