Truly original, 18 Feb. 2007
I am not what you would describe as an avid reader. However, I have read this book numerous times, and laughed out loud each and every time.
Written almost entirely from a male perspective, ( I am female ) this book is gritty yet hilarious, with the language to match. The author somehow manages to describe and relate characters and the story as it unfolds, as if he were talking into your ear. The animated descriptions that instantly come to life in your head as the scenes unfold, place the reader back in the 70's with the unruly mob of police officers constantly battling for one-up manship with the local criminals. A gift of a book!
