This book is fun and silly and it seems that Mr. Fleming had a good time cutting down a character he almost seemed bored of writing.

The book gives a good overview of capitalism from the point of view of the crisis that happens every once in a while, before and after reforms.

It is a brave endeavor to write a sequel or a prequel to existing, classic novels and Mr. Motion does justice to Stevenson’s style and story.

Book Review: The Gunslinger by Stephen King

Mr. King does write an excellent scene and creates a very dramatic world, but the cost was the storyline, which I thought wasn’t very substantial.

The novel does a great job at it, using the same technology and socioeconomic themes, but what makes a good movie does not necessarily makes a good book.
