Both novels and the novella share common traits in structure and style: The author tries to pack the stories with action and morbid qualities, but he does it to such an extent and in such a way that it soon becomes saturated, unbelievable and -what IMHO is worse- predictable and boring. The plot twists he goes for seem many times desperate attempts to be surprising and original but fail completely as after the first couple you already know what to expect.
The gallery of characters was -MHO again- completely unappealing. I'm not well acquainted with Fifhth Avenue's jet set nor with international hitmen, and maybe Stephen King is right and the author truly is a "cultural genius", but I find it hard to believe that everybody is completely dumb, amoral, boring, spoiled etc... It's really scary to think even the "self-made men" who have supposedly worked their way to being powerful are really all so stupid.
There was not a single character I cared for, not even a little. Whether they came and went in the plot made absolutely no difference to me. I just turned the pages because I feel bad for not finishing a book and because - to be honest- I was curious to see whether I could guess the next "unexpected twist".
Some things really upset me: For one, the author focuses on some characters in ways that, if not sarcastic, are trully sad: One of the main female character complains she has never been given chance to succeed and uses it as an excuse to explain her mistakes.Read more ›
All of these books kept me reading until the wee hours of the night and had some good twists and turns. Mr. Smith has risen in my ranks of Thriller Authors and I am anxiously awaiting more.
What I like most about Smith's books are his character development. He give you the ins and outs and continues this throughout the series.
The series starts with Fifth Avenue and rolls into Running of the Bulls where you uncover more of the "plot". From Manhattan with Love is the bridge to his next book and gives you a hint of what this author in store for Park Avenue.
If these books are any indication of what he is capable of, we need to keep an eye on him and his future works!
Fifth Avenue, from the very beginning to the very end you have a story line that will reach out and grab you. This is a real must read.
Running of the Bulls was as good as First Avenue, and will have you on the edge of your seat.
From Manhattan with Love, you wil really feel a part of the story-line, with ups and downs of each character!
Park Avenue, is the next one due to be released.. I hope its as good as the last three.
I have no idea why there are so many amoral characters in the book, unless its to serve as fodder for brutal killings. Even the "good girl" sister to the female scion is sleeping with a new guy on the first date after she found her fiance' cheating on her: no grief, no anger, no "man hating phase," just "let's get back in the saddle"--total male fantasy, and unrealistic. The only char of any interest is the middle age lawyer who's a good family man and friend by day, and a kinky S&M freak by night; clearly, he's a tortured soul but we are never allowed to understand his motivations, except for a brief Psy 101 blurb before he kills himself by jumping in front of a speeding subway (Anna Karenina anyone?) and we are told that "judgmental society did this to him." Yawn.Read more ›
