Read full description of the books Que nadie se mueva:Okay, so I'll take back my fifteen-year-old pronouncement based on nothing but adolescent prejudice, and finally admit it: Denis Johnson is a really good writer. I wish I could write like Denis Johnson, unless that'd mean I'd also have to dress like Denis Johnson, and start going around in the off-channel-quickly-canceled-nineties-cop-show style purple blazer he's wearing in his author's photo. In that case I guess I'll just go on writing like me, and live with the depressing and thoroughly unexciting consequences of this.
I really enjoyed this book! I don't see how anyone who doesn't like any crime fiction at least a little bit wouldn't. It made me think of that trend over the past few years in trendy upscale restaurants, of presenting lowbrow American classics in somewhat gussied-up forms. You know, like White Castle-style Sliders but with free-range Niman Ranch beef, or S'mores made with organic chocolate and home-baked graham crackers and locally-grown marshmallows.... you know? Nobody Move was free-range, Farmers' Market Elmore Leonard, which is not at all to say Johnson's a better writer than Leonard, just that this felt like it cost a lot more per plate.
Or per word, which it did, and that brings me to the problem: PORTION SIZE, DENIS! I know short can be sweet and that size shouldn't matter, but if I'd paid the $23 for this advertised "novel" instead of getting it from the library, I would've been pissed. I would've felt like I'd just been cut out of my portion of an embezzled $2.3 million, and hopped in my distinctive automobile to embark on a mad and ruthless quest for revenge.... I started the book this morning on my commute to work, and I finished it before I reached my station on the way home this evening. Okay, so to be fair I did a good amount of traveling around at work on the train today, but still. This is the personal preference of a helpless blabbermouth who obviously believes that more is more despite evidence against it, but I didn't feel I spent quite enough time with these characters to get to know them how I wanted to, which is sort of a compliment.
Anyway, despite all my whining, I did think this was great. I wouldn't pay for it, though. Borrow this from the library, and bring an extra book along in case you finish so you don't get stranded. Have you ever gone out to a fancy restaurant then stopped by the Dairy Queen for a Blizzard later because you were still hungry? That might happen here. Still, it tastes terrific while you're eating, and I do recommend it.
