A review by radiojen
A Dangerous Man by Charlie Huston


I didn't realize until after I had finished this book that it was the third in a series. I really only read it to begin with because it was a free download from Kindle.

The first half of the book was a bit confusing and did not really hold my attention. I found myself having to reread several pages because I realized I was skimming the words, not really paying attention to what I was reading. However, I hate to start a book and not finish it, so I plugged away. When the book was nearly over, I actually found myself enjoying it. Maybe if I had read the first two books, this one would have been a little more enjoyable to me.

The story is told by the main character in the story, who occasionally skips back and forth (Pulp Fiction style) between two different things that are going on -- the current situation he has gotten himself into and then something in the future that happens that we will eventually learn. See what I mean by how this can be pretty confusing?

There's a lot of violence, bad language and adult situations (drugs, sexual situations, etc). I actually think this wouldn't make a half-bad movie, but this is something I'd much rather see on the big screen than read about.
