In my five-book intro to lit class taught at a community college, I often included this novella or Alice in Wonderland or Tom Sawyer or Slocum's Sailing Alone. The novel never goes beyond a portrait of its protagonist and its supporting characters. Although it lacked the humor promised on the back cover, the pathos more than makes up for it. It's be.
I should've read. Chances are, if you're reading this review, you're not manly enough to handle the Rogue Warrior series.
The weakness here is one. Mongoose and Shotgun are long time best friends Mongoose speaking fluent Spanish is a helpful asset in Cuba and Shotgun being a quite ruthless soldier, but always has an almost unnatural smile no matter what and has snack food at all times.
If you were, you wouldn't be wasting your time here, you'd be lighting a stogie with the smoldering remains of your enemies as you turned the last page in the book. This novella is told from the point of view of the increasingly shabby and morose failed actor and salesman, Tommy Wilhelm, but Bellow also lets us in on what his disapproving father, Dr. Adler, thinks.
I loved this line: "He breathed in the sugar of the new morning."
I also appreciate that the book is on the shorter side.
This book is hilarious, another great entry in the tales of Daring Dick Marcinko. This book sort of reminds me of Death of a Salesman.
It seems like an opening rather than the complete work.
Richard Marcinko is one of the most colorful characters I personally have ever read about, anybody who enjoys well developed characters who can be erratic, unbridled, and reckless would love Demo Dick and his team.
Bought this thinking it was Marcinko's autobiography; it's not and the plot stems from him thinking he looks a lot like Castro. The weakness here is one that is hard to conceal or to acknowledge, but when looked at as closely and compassionately as Bellow has done, it becomes an acutely true image of human existence as it is lived through one single day. Through a series of flashbacks Bellow ruminates mostly on the sorrows of lost opportunities, and the loss of respect of being a son and a father, but he does so with a great deal of humor in places, especially as Tommy gets more and more wrapped up in a stock market scheme.
If you didn't notice, if you thought that the pages were just regular smooth pulp paper, then congratulations, Jocko, you graduated from Man College and you have the Stones to read the words of a stone cold commie killing machine.
