message 9: by Aditya (new)

Aditya | 1400 comments Finished The Force by Don Winslow. An ambitious, well researched crime novel about corrupt cops reminiscent of LA Quartet and The Shield, it is not as exceptional as either but still a fine book in its own right. Rating - 4/5.

Robert Everhart | 2 comments Just finished Kafka's, The Trial. Was kinda brutal. I know it's dated and that factors into the style, but my lands... make your point and move on. :)
Deep in Bradbury's, The Day it Rained Forever. It's incredible. Again, the style is of another time, but man, Ray could write.

Best,

Rob

message 21: by Aditya (new)

Aditya | 1400 comments Finished The Sins of the Fathers by Lawrence Block. The first entry in the Matt Scudder series and it is pretty evident why Block is held in such high esteem among fans of the genre. Rating - 4/5.

Aditya | 1400 comments Finished The Woman in the Window by A.J. Finn. Lots of hype about this one but does not live up to it. Shallower and stupider than it pretends to be. Rating - 3/5.

My review https://www.goodreads.com/review/show...

It is the book of the month as selected by the group, hope more of you will join the discussion.

Agreed. In general, why are British mystery and crime series done so much better than American versions? Exception, of course, is the original Law and Order.

I believe it's intricacy on how the British string their words together. Just an opinion.....

Aditya | 1400 comments Finished Burning Angel by James Lee Burke. So far I have sung praises of Robicheaux series in all of my groups but this one did not work for me. Magical realism and gritty crime does not mix well together. Rating - 2/5
