it was amazing
Read from July 19 to 20, 2010

Note: I'm on a crazy Thompson binge. The world is the same in all his books, but this is the first (of the four so far) that turns into a total corker of a plot. It also features the most pervasive paranoia, with our narrator distrustful of not only the other characters but also himself. He could lose it at any moment and, compounded with his dodgy attitude towards his co-conspirators, that makes for a rocky read.

Also, really? The (acclaimed) 1990 film version stars Jason Patric and Rachel Ward? Not exactly the grittiest actors on earth, eh?
