Overrated; the book AND Gary Gilmore,
This review is from: The Executioner's Song (Arena Books) (Paperback)
It`s a book people will either love or hate.
A 300 to 350-page book on the subject might have worked, but, unfortunately, Mailer`s account is just so long and full of tedious and unnecessary detail, including the day to day lives of the lawyers and producers, and the deeply irritating and uninteresting exchanges between Gilmore and his lover, that you may end up thinking, as I did, "Why bother?"
