it was amazing
bookshelves: fiction
Read in July, 2009

A book from such a different era, plain and simple story telling that was much more satisfying than ninety percent of books I pick up. In fact, the author of “Shantaram”, which I broke away from to read this, could have taken a leaf in style from Louis. Not each and every one – each and every one – of your life events are necessarily worth recording in the one book mate. And sometimes a man wants a woman because he does, without having to explain her every attractive physical and mental quality. If the bint in this book had spouted the “Philosophy for Dummies” stuff that the ethereal Karla in “Shantaram” did, Hondo would have shot her.
