Not as sickening or gory but still Carcaterra quality,
By A Customer
This review is from: Gangster (Paperback)
Being a great fan of previous Carcaterra books I couldn't wait for 'Gangster' to be published.
Even thought this book is a story about the makings of a gangster and all that is involved in that kind of lifestyle I was surprised at the low levels of violence that where portraied. In great Carcaterra fashion there are parts that make you feel ill, part make you want to join in with the fight and parts can make you cry. The more you read the more you fall in love with the characters. I found the story addictive and I wanted to find out more about Angelo, Pudge, Ida the Goose and all the other characters mentioned. Lorenzo Caracterra is a very talented writer and I wait with baited breath for his next best seller.
If you have never read a Carcaterra book before I think this will be a good one to start with. But if you are more used to the type of action that can be found in 'Apache' you may be a little disappointed.
