Aksiyon (özellikle HK gangster) filmleriyle büyürken, filmlerde veya video oyunlarında aksiyon / macerayı gerçekten seven bir parçam var. Bu roman tamamen bir video oyunu gibi okuyor. en büyük dezavantajı ise kitaptaki çılgın / kötü çevrecilerdir. Ama bunun dışında her bir görevi ve karakterleri yürütme stratejisini gerçekten seviyorum (Clark'ı sevmemin ana sebebinin Willem DaFoe'nun onu Clear and Present Danger'da oynaması yüzünden olmasına rağmen, Jack Ryan kitaplarını beğenmekle de aynı şey geçerli çünkü Harrison Ford- Ben Afflek ve Alec Baldwin benim için yapmadı)
I picked up this book while waiting to get my copy of Deathly Hallows. The cover art grabbed my attention but the story itself kept me reading. This book (and the ones that follow) are amazing!
Great collection! I'd recommend it to anyone new to the short story or to anyone who is already a die hard fan. I was pleased with the variety of authors in this collection. There are authors included that I am already quite familiar with and authors who I had never even heard of. I think I'll be coming back to this collection for some time to come. I particularly enjoyed the stories of Junot Diaz, Sherman Alexie, Richard Ford, and Grace Paley who were among the authors I was introduced to through this book.
Oh. This was sort of like having a quasi intellectual conversation with a superficial art director/ commercial television director in Toronto. (Speaking from experience.) It was wanting so much to be informed, to come across as a plunging foray into quirky poignant vignettes of life, but it grasped at all the strangest straws and references to appear interesting. Sorry Neil Smith, I am sure you are good guy! I didn't get it, tried a few of the short stories, but couldn't see them through. Like that indie film everyone recommends but that only speaks to a tiny group of society, and you wonder how everyone else can really be enjoying it, but you feel they all are aren't they, so you should try to, but don't get it. And because what was cool about it remained a mystery to you, but the rest of it was shite overall, you only remember the latter. :)
