really liked it
bookshelves: fiction

"I loved the charactor Leonard in AMLP, but here the charactor is transformed into a somewhat laughable stereotype of the excessive gangster. Leonard's appeal may have partially been that we didn't know a lot about him, so we weren't sure how his actions meshed with the person that he really was. Frey may have actually done a disservice by revealing too much about Leonard in this book. This book was still incredibly enjoyable, I whipped through it in two days (staying up far too late some nights to read!). If you enjoyed AMLP (controversy aside) pick up My Friend Leonard and continue the journey, but don't expect that same emotional depth out of this book as his first."
