Viva La Madness

Escape to a sunny retirement In a dazzling combination of London low life Caribbean high life and Venezuelan drug cartels toting machine guns in Mayfair our hero's voice and mission are authentic thrilling and whiplash inducing in eual share 35 stars This would have scored higher for me but for the fact the POV protagonist doesn t actually do anything for the whole book He goes where he s told Does what he s told Says and even wears what he s told He has no agency He exists purely to be a witness to and report back on other characters snappy dialogue and shenanigansAlso the 911 ending seemed entirely unnecessary

READ & DOWNLOAD Viva La Madness

Now Connolly is back with a seuel that sees him on the same stunning form with his trademark razor sharp dialogue and uick fire violence but also finding dark humor and pathos in the lives of violent men From the London underworld Viva la Ma I picked up Viva La Madness over Christmas break because its English pedigree reminded me of Snatch and maybe a cousin of the Scottish Trainspotting I never readsaw the movie of the preuel Layer Cake and neither the library nor used bookstore had it so I went with the seuel I wasn t disappointed Well not much Viva La Madness is a lively rollicking read that reuires full reality dismissal for optimal enjoyment Viva La Madness is a seedy underworld comedy with well drawn characters a prodigious body count and a jump drive jammed up a dead Venezuelan s ass The novel moves best as a series of near uproarious scenes Connolly writes snappy dialogue both interior and exterior and keeps the storyline clear and moving until maybe the novel s last third where I grew a little confused with complicated financial sleight of hand Be ready to embrace a couple huge deus ex machinas though with mistaken identities and characters tripping a moment before a bullet passes their headspace I thought Viva La Madness was a formality before the film version until I read the last twenty pages Connolly wraps up with a chapter too jarring and horrific for a PG 13 crime thriller He s either got balls of steel or he s flipping the movie industry the bird Also I didn t understand all the English slang but uh I think I got the gist Still I had fun with Viva La Madness and I wouldn t mind tracking down Layer Cake I dig a good rollick

    Not a particularly enticing follow up to Layer Cake and somewhat of a repetition of what went before I still read it though Here I felt Connolly ran out of plot and the characters broke down a little I felt rather like I was re reading Layer Cake with some changes I happened to stumble across some discussions in a forum that suggest a great deal of authenticity in Connolly's writing Put another way he knows h
