    Enjoyable!

    My first Lawrence Block book, and it proved to be a good one. Graphic at times; but nonetheless, the story keeps the reader interested, and the story moves along quickly. Details are not spared, and it certainly warrants a closer look at the Matthew Scudder series.

    I would not recommend this book

    I found this book to be too vulgar and bloody for my tastes. I do like a good mystery and/or crime story but this one was over the top.
    The particular crime and the vulgar language turned me off.

    SKIP THE BOOK AND SEE THE MOVIE:

    What can I say, except that maybe I've just grown weary of the stereotypical protagonist with an alcoholic (among other) problems ... or, maybe, I have trouble empathizing with a drug dealer, even if his wife was kidnapped, ransomed, and then mailed back to him in pieces ... or, maybe a serial killer/kidnapper who gets his jollies off by garroting women's breasts just isn't my cup of tea? Whatever, despite the fact that I'm a fan of author Lawrence Block, and did read this one all of the way through, this book did absolutely nothing for me (something decidedly "off" about its first-person narrative). I'm thinking I should have skipped the book and just seen the movie with Liam Neeson, figuring this might well be one of those times when the movie is better than the book.

    Not for the faint of heart.

    Well written but too much graphic violence for me.
