I figured the recent movie starring Denzel was a remake of an earlier movie - it was, but I didn't know that movie was based on a book. I picked up my copy on the cheap, and loved every page of it.
I wasn't alive in 1973, so I'm not sure how accurately this reflects the subway system, or more specifically, the New York of that time. Reading from the perspective of 2012, the racist or sexist bent of some of the characters is a little hard to take. I hope it wasn't this bad, but it may have been.
Regardless, this is a good book. I've never heard of this author, but I like his style. I'd be surprised if the writer didn't work in the NY Subway System. He really seems to have affection for it, and it's infectious to read about. It's also interesting to compare this story to the updated plot from the newest film, which was updated to fit the present day.
The story really kept me on my toes until the end. Reminds me a little bit of "The Day of the Jackal" in which I found myself rooting for both sides at the same time. And who doesn't love a good heist!?
