    PDF/EPUB Playland MOBI À ↠ nuiun.de playland kindle, Playland PDF/EPUBIntellectual colorful and loaded with detail But in the end I am disappointed There is a jerky disjointed pace to the book The ending just drifted into place The 512 pages were about 200 too many And as the storyline progressed I had a vision of the movie Bugsy and I didn't like the comparison because I wanted so much for this book The story of Meta Dierdorf could have led to something dramatic and powerfully explosive and even unifying to the plot line Yet she ended up being a distraction and a nuisance However John Gregory Dunne is still on my 'to read list' for the simple reason he employs a rich vocabulary and delivers a product with a higher than average Lexile score

    PDF/EPUB Playland MOBI À ↠ nuiun.de playland kindle, Playland PDF/EPUBI absolutely loved this book John Gregory Dunne is an unfairly overloooked master way better a novelist than Norman Mailer in my opinion PLAYLAND is a wicked collision between an amoral Fifties starlet kind of Shirley Temple all grown up and a Bugsy Siegel gangster The scene where the gangster arrives at Los Angeles train station to be met by the LAPD is tuning fork pitch perfect fiction writing The book reads like grown up James Ellroy Highly recommended
