5.0 out of 5 stars Badda Bing!!!!! An Intelligent Gangster Thriller, 11 Mar. 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Gangster (Paperback)
This book is absolute class! I have never read Lorenzo Carcaterra books before(but I will after this). I took this book on Holiday with me and was so engrossed from begining to end I hardly did anything else but read. Carcaterra's descriptive power and Character building is awsome (as good as Thomas Harris' in "Hannibal"). It has a brilliant set of conflicts within the characters emotions i.e. Gabe and Angelo and the physical conflicts that lead to brutal seens of violence. But this book is more than just brutal conflict (unlike most other Gangster novel's I've read it is only used sparingly) It is written with real intelligence, that flows slickly, with real finesse.
I have no doubt this book will be made into a film. It is screaming Hollywood Blockbuster all over it! I just hope for once the director sticks as closely to the plot of the book as possible.
Gangster is an absolute must read for any fan of the genre! Anyone who isn't a fan of the genre will be after reading this. Buy it, borrow it, steal it, just read it or you really will be missing out on one of the best Mob books in recent times!
