En lire davantage En lire moins. Like Lions: A Novel. Bearskin: A Novel. The Line That Held Us. The Nothing Within. A gritty, dark thriller packed with action. With shades of Mattie Ross but an intelligence and fervor all her own, she is unforgettable.
Expert pacing and well-developed characters lift this above the thriller pack.

She Rides Shotgun
Will they ever be able to live an honest life, free of fear? She Rides Shotgun is a gripping and emotionally wrenching novel that upends even our most long-held expectations about heroes, villains, and victims. Nate takes Polly to save her life, but in the end it may very well be Polly who saves him. This book is a gritty look at post-prison life and gangs. It shows the growth of love between father and daughter, and her loss of innocence. It feels genuine, like few books ever do. Give this book a chance to wow you.
I highly recommend this book. It has a crispness of writing that placed the reader not only immediately in the environment but successfully captures the emotional tone of the characters in a clear and distinct way.
There are not pages and pages of internal dialogue as a crutch to create point of pigment hemochromatosis or to sort out scenes when the artistry of the writer has achieved it so succinctly.
It is impossible to put down. Each mounting concern brings great suspense and an ache for the humanity it uncovers. Polly is the child in all of us. Feeling alienated because of her intelligence and perhaps her homelife, she understands her place in the world by not being of this world; Polly is from Venus. This is a comforting tool she tells herself when childhood experiences don't quite measure up.
Just as her teddy bear has a place in her world. He is a constant creating the companionship and unconditional love that is needed. That's where the darkness lies and the harrowing journey begins in a green monster of a car that has you facing evil at every turn and courage that can only be measured by the constancy of love between a father and his child.
Every once in awhile a book comes along that makes you want to take back most of your other 5 star reviews. This is one of those books. It's gripping, thrilling, heart filling and validates something I've long suspected: Good parenting includes teaching your kid how to take a hit. Great characters. One of those books that makes you take the long way home, just so you can keep listening.
At first I thought this was going to be a great book. I noticed some keen writing and a freshness to ideas. Then the story just became good enough to continue. I suppose it was worth the read towards the end to hear the authors great description of a hallucinogenic trip a detective took as he was fighting for his life. That was some intriguing writing. I don't love this book and I can't hate it either. It was just a trip I still am not sure I liked.
I love the use of humor and quirkiness the author uses for cutting some of the grittiness of this story. The narrator does a fantastic job. Definitely a great listen.
Old-school crime drama, very gritty and violent. I liked the Southern California setting. The relationship that builds between Nate and Polly is wonderful, and the Bear was an inspired touch. The plot is a bit predictable. I have read the positive reviews, and you can count me out. The amount and intensity of the violence in the book is disgusting, IMHO. To see this violence from the eyes of a ten-year-old girl with gunfighter eyes? Are you serious?
I just don't see the need for Polly to become a nurse to her Dad's gunshot wounds. He, BTW, is a dead-bang loser, an unusual characteristic for the guy who is the alleged protagonist. He is impulsive, a man who only enjoys stealing and taking fatal revenge on other bad guys.
Aryan Steel sounds like the most vile criminal gang in the prison system. What makes the author think that we want to read in detail about these horrible gangsters?
Ajout au panier...
Throwing a villain on hot barbecue coals? Do we love this kind of torture? Flesh sizzling? Give this one a skip, I can't imagine anyone genuinely enjoying it. The writing is not skillful. The narration is NBD. The various revenge plots are stupid: right out of seventh grade.
Spare me. I couldnt stop listening to this story
