Un bon thriller américain qui pourrait donner un excellent film...Je ne l'ai pas laché !
What an odd book. Interesting, nonetheless. There are a couple of really unusual style choices. To wit. The sex/romance scenes are written in an entirely different style out of the original voice/flow, which is weird. I guess it just shows the author is not entirely comfortable/skilled with it. The reveal of the killer about 2/3 of the way is contrary to your usual crime canon, which makes for a bit of reader shock. The revelations about the protagonist are entirely new as well, and completely shift his character. Just odd, I guess.
This great mystery follows the tale of a damaged, amnesiac street person as he explores the caves and tunnels under New York City during the police hunt for a psychopathic serial killer. This could certainly be the basis for a good movie!
A fun light read. My favorite of all of his books.
One of George's non-Mongo books and a wonderful one-off story. I did figure out the ending etc, but it's a great read.
Très bonne histoire, passionnant et les personnages sont très attachants
One truly gains a sense of what it is like to be homeless and psychotic from reading Bone. Yet, it is actually an uplifting story that leaves the reader satisfied.
