    Epub shop peters.de ë Legs eBook Ç legs ebok, Legs EpubFirst book in what has been called The Albany Trilogy This book focuses on gangster Legs Diamond a native of Philadelphia who eventually resettled up in New York This is the story of the last few months of his life as related by his attorney Lots happens but for me it is a slow read In a way I was reminded of the Dennis Lehane book The Given Day which was the first of his Coughlin Trilogy and which I also found a slow read As with all books on gangsters the inevitable happens to Legs even though he is portrayed in the most favorable of light

    Epub shop peters.de ë Legs eBook Ç legs ebok, Legs EpubProbably at least a 35 this is an entertaining portrayal of an iconic gangster that explores the iconography of gangsters which I would have perhaps rated higher if I hadn't read Doctorow's similarly themed Billy Bathgate at the start of the year; the stylistic voice and analyses of crime and human violence captured in that novel reminiscent of Cormac McCarthy at his best overshadowed Kennedy's book for me

    Epub shop peters.de ë Legs eBook Ç legs ebok, Legs EpubI had been interested in reading William Kennedy's trilogy about upstate New York for a long time but this is one of those novels that has less of a plot than a biography that is written like a novel I think when novelists rise to a certain stature no one asks them to cut the fat any This is a three million times told story of the fancy gangster with the hot mistress and the loving wife and people who love him even tho he's really bad Nothing remarkable here to me The narrator is the most compelling character but he's no great shakes

    Epub shop peters.de ë Legs eBook Ç legs ebok, Legs EpubFeels like a classic gangster movie with flashes of Scorsese and Tarantino spliced in The book is self aware of its tawdry subject matter yet it still can't resist the pull to glamorize the lives of a psychopathic hood and his female companions Occasionally slips into poetic ruminations which are generally corny in the extremeThe moral ambivalence of the narrator a lawyer who goes on Legs Diamond's payroll and his worshipful admiration of his client combined with some untrustworthy narrator flourishes are uite affecting The portrait of the scumbag lawyer is compelling than that of the charismatic gangster but the author doesn't seem to realize this except in flashes This is not a good book but there are some good impulses It's not
