...go so wrong? I dunno, but this novel manages it.
Five little old people decide to embark on a life of crime in order to fund a better lifestyle for themselves and other elderly folks. They manage to swipe two priceless masterpieces from the national art gallery. They collect a ransom. They also rob a money-transport truck. They get away from both police and the mafia. And they get away with the crimes. What could possibly go wrong in the telling of this tale?
Well, one could become so repetitive that readers want to gouge out their eyes. One could make every other living human in the story as dumb as a box of hammers. And one could stretch credulity beyond the point of breaking. All these reasons are a part of this novel. But what really made me want to hurl my Kindle at the wall was the repetitive use of the term "Zimmer frame," which appeared 77 times. One and a half stars.
