review 1: As a fan of Trevanian's Shibumi, I naturally desired to learn more about Nicholai Hel, the novel's accomplished super assassin. I read Shibumi once back in the early eighties and enjoyed it very much. The book left a lasting impression. When I discovered that Don Winslow had writ...

review 1: I picked up this book solely to fulfill a library reading program requirement (read a book about surfing), but I was very pleasantly surprised. The Gentleman's Hour is a delightful and fairly light-hearted crime novel, with fun, engaging characters, a witty writing voice and a go...

review 1: I was hoping for more out of this book given some of the media it received. I was let down. I didn't particularly care about any of the characters and the main girl annoyed me to no end. It seemed as though the book may have been trying to make a statement about how people bec...

review 1: I don't think it's overstating to say that Winslow is a genius. I don't know how one becomes a writer quite as fine as Winslow but if I could take a pill for it I certainly would. Kings Of Cool - a prequel to Savages - is no exception to this talented author's cannon. While no...

review 1: Another good read from Don Winslow! This one has a surfer/detective Boone Daniels dealing with the temptation of huge waves on the horizon, and a missing witness for the court. Along with his friends, Sunny Day, Hang Twelve, High Tide, Dave the Love God, Johnny Banzai, Cheerful...

review 1: If he only would have kept it 20 pages shorter, leaving out the over the top cliché end and keeping it a bit open, it would have been nearly perfect. It starts slow, Winslow being busy to briefly recreate the universe of "the Dawn Patrol", then step by step builds up the new char...

review 1: As I really liked the first novel featuring Daniel Boone, the surfing investigator, I definitely wanted to continue the series. And again, 'The Gentlemen's Hour' was a very enjoyable read, depicting the surfer community in a very easy-going way. The case itself is quite thrilling...

review 1: Rock solid effort from Don Winslow.As always, I like the SoCal lifestyle, setting and lingo. The prose is lyrical cool, which is always a plus.The only problem is the story fizzled out in the second half. Enemies were introduced too late and disappeared too fast. Showdown include...

review 1: Each paragraph like a stick of dynamite; it is the paragraph, the singular block that comprises the graphic novel that's very much post-YA, post-Ellis punch to the face... and of course it's very amoral and gruesome.This novel was alarming to me because, as a zeitgeisty book, it ...

review 1: A total mindfuck on steroids!Maybe I'm that one human being in the world that thinks everyone of my experiences should contain a deep and powerful spiritual meaning. That is why I love Don Winslow as an author. He takes that "Image" of the man in the mirror and shows us the fau...

review 1: At first I didn't really enjoy the flashbacks that this book contained, but once I realized what they were for I was in love! I really wish this would be turned into a movie, but that doesn't happen often with prequels. If you enjoyed Savages, you need to pick this book up. It gi...

review 1: Boone Daniels è un ex poliziotto, ora investigatore privato. E’ un uomo che non chiede molto alla sua vita, se non quella di poter uscire all’alba insieme ai suoi amici a surfare e quello di mangiare qualche tortilla ripiena di carne, uova o pesce. Perché non c’è niente di meglio...

review 1: La pattuglia dell'alba è composta di sei amici, quanto più diversi l'uno dall'altro, ma con una passione assoluta che li accomuna, quella del surf e che fa sì che ogni mattina, all'alba, prima dei rispettivi lavori, i sei si ritrovino a pagaiare e surfare a Pacific Beach. In que...
