Told in the tradition of the best literary noir, Tales of Lust, Hate and Despair is a modern, lowdown and gritty take on the genre. Inspired by the cinema of Akira Kurosawa and Samuel Fuller as well as the music of Tom Waits, Sage Francis, Neurosis and Marilyn Manson, it is a novel that is sure to please anyone who has ever found themselves trapped and cast aside from the world
I am not a fan usually of this genre, I enjoy giving every book I come across a chance. And so I did with this because there are those rare occasions that a genre will surprise me.
This book kind of fell into the middle.
You are placed in the middle of a tale where a man is released from prison after a long stint.
Anyone who is anyone knows that when you are let out of jail it is hard to adjust with the freedom, and that is perhaps why I didn't enjoy the book as much as I could have.
The transition was just to easy.
The book was a thrilling read and fans of the genre deffinetly should give it a try.
