4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By sanddevil on 13 May 2000
Format: Paperback
With two hugely successful cult novels behind him, James Hawes spectacularly fails to deliver in this plodding third volume which seldom gets out of first gear. The disagreeable and hackneyed two-dimensional characterisation failed to invoke either sympathy or empathy with this reviewer, and the languid plot progression served to frustrate and made the entire reading process an onerous chore as cod mortality blarney was heaped on the unfortunate reader. It is difficult to understand why Hawes has gone wrong - having overcome the troublesome second novel syndrome, his career path of churning cult novels was established. Instead, he opted for craft and guile - dramatically achieved in similar circumstances by Iain Banks' scholarly masterpiece "A Song of Stone", but regrettably missed by Hawes on this occasion. One can only hope his next endeavour shows a return to form, and more importantly, a return to familiar ground.

Sadly, the pacy nature of Hawes' other books have been replaced by tons of thirtysomething agonising here, which just appears to go around in circles without ever being resolved. The characters are two-dimensional and the plot feels far-fetched. Avoid.

I'll start off with the statement that "A White Merc With Fins" and "Rancid Aluminium" are so so much better than anything James Hawes has written since that I'm genuinely starting to wonder if the first two were his at all!
This one is slow and pointless - and that's being kind! Give it a miss and buy the latest Christopher Brookmyre instead!

Format: Paperback
..about turning 40, this is still a great read. I haven't read his other books, so I'm not sure in what ways this may differ from the two others, though I understand they do. The tone is dry and witty, just the way I like it, with cynical remarks and a pretty good flow of the language and narration. I got the book for my 40th and what can I say?
