Recent Comments "Your Day in the Barrel"
An early Alan Furst novel No WW2 Central European intrigue just hippie pot dealing and paranoia Some funny, clever stuff, but a bit antic and ultimately silly Worth reading if you re a Furst completist or want a 70s literary artifact Fans will enjoy the smarts, but will likely miss the sobriety of his recent books.
Really loved this book So glad I read it
Fast moving I read it within 2 days and entertaining Lots of action Dialogues were sharp, sometimes funny A little short on character development, but in the other hand there was no melodrama, or excessively adjectival or adverbial descriptions Reminded me a little of Dashiel Hammett or El Leonard, but definitely not as good Will probably read of Furst s early stuff.
Fun, if dated It was interesting to read Furst s earlier work The pacing of this book was phenomenal and it actually had a handle on just how little you need to really sustain a good thriller I m still partial to the novels in the Night Soldiers cycle.
A fun, easy read
Wasn t really sure what to expect when picking up this book It is Furst s debut novel, and somehow Elmhurst s library has managed to hold on to a first edition all these years meaning enough people checked it out before Furst got famous to keep it in circulation I find that hard to believe, but hey, what do I know It is quite different from Furst s Night Soldiers series It is set in the late 1960s America The first person narrator is a smart hippie the way I dress, the hippies think I m a busine [...]
Furst claims that his early work is embarrassing I disagree I remember reading this book back in the 80s and enjoying it Picked it up again and it was still fun The prose has a lot energy, zing, than the elegant construction of the WWII novels Decent plot Interesting characters A guy in trouble a theme that will reappear in all of his work Worth looking at if you want to see where Furst came from.
