Пиша това ревю заради Ел. Тя ме помоли, след като имам профил, да взема и да го обогатя. Така че Ел, следващите редове са посветени на теб. :)
Има книги, които плъзгат нежни страници по струните на душата ми и успяват да изтръгнат от тях онзи предоргазмен писък на папагал, който ознаменува срещата с наистина добро четиво. Редовете трептят, нахлуват в мен, рикошират в дъното на душата ми, после - в стените, срещат се, пресичат се, наслагват се, а накрая се натрупват и издигат до онова кресчендо,

The story of hitman and knife specialist, Nick Escalante. Slick, stylish prose and lots of twists to the story but considering it's by William "Structure is everything" Goldman the plot feels rather shambolic.
Jim Sanderson
I enjoyed this book. I must say that there is a significant subplot in the novel that I don't remember in the film.
William Goldman is a genius.
