4.0 out of 5 stars Good but not his best, 5 Jun 2011
This review is from: Savages (Paperback)
I believe i have read every book Don Winslow has published and loved all his works. i feel Savages fits into the middle rank of his writing, it does not have the power and scope of "The Power of the Dog" nor does it have the relaxed feel of something like "California Fire and Life" or "The Dawn Patrol". i wonder if making the younger protaganists the centre of the story (younger than the central protagnaists of his earlier works) reulted in Winslow haveing a less instinctive feel for thier emotions and thoughts.

However, Winslow is a great craftsman and he moves the narrative along strongly, maintining the viewpoints of each character beautifully and at good pace, i suspect something of a jaundiced view about the impact of drugs on modern society makes him somewhat less sympahetic to the whole drug culture than evidenced in some earlier work, it is nice to see a continuation and stronger restatement of some of the perceptions of "The Power of the Dog".

A good work but not his best, but, better than most of the modern works in this genre.
