Summary æ Viva La Madness ☆ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Free read 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 had no idea there was a seuel to Layer CakeI d rate the film in my top 50 It s cool sleek fast paced and has some killer set pieces and one liners If I catch it on TV its one of those I ll just wait up until such and such scene A bit like Get CarterI read the book after the film and found it as enjoyable As you would expect with the author being the screenwriter it was an accurate representationSo I stumbled across this in the library Its bigger on scale than Layer Cake but still has several of the same characters The unnamed narrator obviously and Morty make a welcome return Throw in some ultra twitchy london lowlifes who uickly get out of their depth and South American drugs cartels and you have a fine storyFirst half of the book is superb Fast paced almost believable for an over the top crime caper The black humour remains Especially what they get Roy to do to return the key missing part of the story a memory stick which is rather obviously signposted earlier in the bookAs the 2nd half continues things get out of control The body count increases massively things get too frantic and control of the story is lost a little At 448 pages its overlong for this type of caperThat said its a worthy successor and a decent read I doubt we ll get a cinematic seuel which is a real shameAnd it would have got an extra half mark if the memory stick hadn t been 128MB With all those photos

Summary æ Viva La Madness ☆ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Free read 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. 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 his characters and knows the scene he is writing aboutIt is a bit of a tome and continuing with the pace and plot for 445 pages took some doing Perhaps if it was cut by about 13rdHowever at the end of the day Connolly is one of the few British writers accomplished in this genre and able to blend in large doses of peculiar and idiosyncratic humor and his work is always worth reading for that alone but there is to itDamn now I m talking myself into liking this book and had to up the rating by one star It must be alright
