5.0 out of 5 stars Rats on strings June 9, 2011

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is funny, quirky, and about as different from
any fiction I've read as I can imagine.
The pace is fast and the book is hard to put down.
It's also a good introduction to New York City!
I would recommend it to anyone. Rats on Strings

4.0 out of 5 stars Weird and engaging December 23, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The question of star rating is becoming more difficult as there are so many 5 star ratings that 5 does not seem special enough - and/or there is no star level that can express the worth of a truly outstanding work. With that said, I apologize for the 4 stars I gave this singular book. If "Night Circus" (my favorite for this year) is a 5 - then Rats on Strings is a 4. It was a very, enjoyable 4 though. Characters are interesting, the plot is a hoot and a half and the writing is beautifully spare. Good read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great story !!! October 6, 2011
By Oleg Y
Guy James "Rats on strings"

Great book. 5 stars rating.

This book is about life of a young man who happened to be a New York lawyer and his own path to freedom and success passing a number of odd obstacles including work at the law firm where people's lives and opinions did not count, his personal issues due to a breakup with girlfriend and financial ones keeping him a slave of his boss. What happened next is a vision of main character and his actions. Can we judge him? Probably not, because everybody is entitled to build his own world. A world of half of dreams and half of reality.
Masterly linked events and characters makes you feel a part of the show and encourage you to read more and more. I would not compare author's style to any others but I would make some parallel with O. Henry a master of satire and suspense in one package.
After I've finished reading this book I've realized how fast time passed and I regretted there are no more pages left ... well like after watching a great movie you still continue thinking what if and how come? If you really caught yourself in that kind of position then you read something meaningful... something that will stay in your mind and bring laughs and thoughts for the rest of your life.

Great work! Expect Unexpected!!

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It is not very often I hate a book like I did this one.I kept wanting to stop reading it, but moved forward waiting for it to get better. It never did and I will never get those wasted hours back in my life! Don't waste your time or money!
