"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 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 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?
