EJ points me to this new techno-thriller. Based on the sentence quoted above, I don’t see it selling lots of copies. It reads like a really boring Raymond Chandler.
I still think these two movie ideas would be a better sell.
The Dutch original did keep me spellbound (you just have to recognize the boring stuff and skip it, but that is true for many books).
What kind of Dutch guy writes, “I like driving; always have.” That made me suspicious already! I was waiting for the part where he tries to run over a sociologist in a parking lot . . .
Amazing, will certainly provide data for somebody, if not a best-seller.
But that led me to another publication at the same website:
They did not find any … but their methodology was interesting.
I thought it was pretty good. And “The Lying Dutchman” is a great nickname.
Not as good as “The Tokin’ Jew.”
