well, i picked this up not knowing anything about it and admit i was sort of sucked into it and felt like i needed to read it till the end so i did - even though i can't say i was particularly "liking" the story. i prefer to read for pleasure and this was not pleasing unfortunately. tons of police and criminal jargon kept it at a fast pace. can't say any questions were actually answered or any resolution reached. felt a little cheated at the end. oh well. i gave it a whirl.

Given how much I usually hate Martin Amis's books ("London Fields," "The Rachel Papers"), the biggest compliment I can this is that I didn't hate it. Make no mistake, I didn't like it, but I didn't make me want to throw it in disgust. Basically its Amis does "hardboiled." And, like many literary types who stoop to genre fiction, there's a self-satisfied irony and lack of understanding of the genre's conventions that keep getting in the way. I never really bought Amis trying to write from a woman's point of view, much less an American woman.
