    Hardcover Ü Train ePUB ò train download, Train EpubDexter is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors His spare and menacing style quirky characters bizarre humor and capturing of place are all on display here This book involves racism golf a caddie named “Train” a police Sergeant obsessed with control failed land deals a rich widowand survivor of a terrifying boat hijacking an ex boxer “Plural”a great Dexter creation some creepy criminals and psychopaths and lots of random violence in 1950’s LA This has been described as Dexter’s take on a Walter Mosley book and this is correct but Dexter’s style is very dissimilar to Mosley’s warmer take

    Hardcover Ü Train ePUB ò train download, Train EpubPerhaps he said you need someone to share this with Packard had just described for the psychologist not his loveless life but his heavy cruiser the Indianapolis burning to the waterline in the night and the days and nights of floating around the Pacific Ocean with the sharks and burned and dying shipmates The sharks came morning and evening at mealtime and stayed about as long as it would take you to eat dinner Packard to this day did not eat at regular hours but aside from that on the occasions when he asked himself

    Hardcover Ü Train ePUB ò train download, Train EpubI liked this book because it has great characters and allows them to build little worlds for themselves In addition to the main character Train there is a hard boiled LA police Sergeant that reminds me of Don Draper It is a very dark book Pete Dexter must live in some kind of hell world if he can imagine people thinking and acting this way well enough to make it come alive like this in a novel Thank God he can work it out by sharing it with the world Like Paris

    Hardcover Ü Train ePUB ò train download, Train EpubSimultaneously very dark and semi sweet This is a view of the deeply ingrained and bewildering racism of 1953 and a picture of how love and pain always go hand in hand The violence is cold brutal and astonishingl

    Hardcover Ü Train ePUB ò train download, Train EpubI read my first book by Pete Dexter a few weeks ago The Paperboy and I was hooked I'm not sure why I never heard of Dexter before but I'll read anything he writes It is an engaging character study of two people one a young black man who is an amazing golfer and the other is a man who survived the sinking of the Indianapolis and a few days in the water with sharks Dexter's writing is flawless

    Hardcover Ü Train ePUB ò train download, Train EpubI've read a lot of this author's work and enjoy it all Pete Dexter has a dark sense of humor and an insight into the small minded ways of modern America This novel like other Dexter work explores many issues including racism sexuality and greed Pete is a master of dialogue particularly idiomatic English as it is spoken by small town Southerners African Americans and criminal types His characters are well drawn archetypes whose best intentions are generally foiled by tragic circumstances or trumped by poor decision making Told from multiple points of view the tone and voice of this novel is driven home through Dexter's colorful use of local syntax throughout the narrative
