2.0 out of 5 stars Sad Somoza, 13 Jan 2008
This review is from: Zig Zag (Hardcover)
This was an eargerly awaited translation. The first two were tremendously imaginative uses of form (Athenian Murders) and content (Art of Murder); Both transcending the Thriller model.
Zig Zag is profoundly dissapointing. Somoza has seemingly abandoned his imaginative transformation of the thriller genre and dived headlong into the pool of thriller mediocracy. This is cliched American writing. After almost every paragraph, what the proponent is REALLY thinking is italasised for us bufoons. There is some physics involved in the plot, which is slightly interesting but it reads like any other modern page turner found on the shelves. Sadly I think the author has gone for the lolly as I think it will sell better than the others. I will not be one to continue to read his work however.
