Product Description

Review

"Savages is full of wild-card moves.... Its wisecracks are so sharp, its characters so mega-cool and its storytelling so ferocious...thanks especially to Mr. Winslow's no-prisoners sense of humor." ---Janet Maslin, The New York Times --This text refers to the MP3 CD edition.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
When I read this book I had already seen the movie which is something I would normally never do. When I first saw the trailer for this movie I was excited to see it, and I didn’t even know that it was a movie. That same day I was in a (legal) drug store and saw the book, so I picked it up with the intentions of reading it before the movie came out. That’s not exactly the way it turned out and I was blindsided into seeing the movie first. I really hate reading a book after seeing a movie because you know what’s going to happen. I guess these days screenwriters and directors often change the plot so much you can barely recognize the story, but I digress more on that later.

This is not normally something that I would read. I don’t like reading about drugs in any form really and this book is a little too adult for me. I actually liked the storyline, but with some of the acronyms and slang talk I struggled to really enjoy the book. I did like some of the characters especially Ben I liked what he stood for. In one way it was okay to read the book after the movie because I could picture things happening. I also like that with the book of course we get more background information like about the Esteban character. I would probably rate this book at a 2.5. The movie was a pretty good adaptation of the novel except of course for the ending. I don’t know why Oliver Stone ended the movie the way that he did…I would also rate the movie about a 50% (It was rated 53% on Rotten Tomatoes) Check out my blog for more reviews: [....]

The entire book reads like you're on drugs with alternating tense and mellow situations. Winslow tackles characters and situations head on and is not afraid to get nasty,dirty and vulgar. By the end of it, you feel like you just came off a «trip». Essentially, the storyline is about the drug business so it was completely appropriate and impressive to have the story written so.

The rhythm is fast like a heartbeat on drugs and the language is as colourful as the world looks through inibriated eyes. The characters are developped quickly but the descriptions are abundant and endearing.
There is never a sentence without meaning, never a moment wasted reading them. 302 pages that go by like a dream...
No lagging, no pointless chapters or even pages. He makes sure to include just enough information to keep you interested and leave the rest to your imagination. Except the sex scenes - NOTHING is left to your imagination. They are exotic and dare I say it? savage. How fitting.

The movie was good, the book is better! what else is new?

Format: Hardcover
Savages is brief, violent & bawdy good fun. While it takes the hard boiled crime thriller form and updates it in an idiosyncratic post modern style there is not much said. As though melted down to its prime elements it is still an enjoyable reading experiment.

as in most cases this novel was much better than the movie adaptation.it was much easier to be sympathetic towards & understanding of the alternative lifestyles & personalities of the characters in the novel.
