    Potboiler ePUB à Hardcover potboiler book, Potboiler PDF/EPUBHaving been a huge fan of Jesse's parents Jonathon and Faye Kellerman work for a long time I read his first few novels Double Homicide Sunstroke and Trouble all psychological thrillers where Jesse proved to have inherited his parent's talents However Jesse's latter novels have shown a bent for irreverence combining psychological thriller with quirky and unusual elementsPotboiler was not anything like what I was expecting It's a satirical novel mocking popular fiction and I'm not entirely sure if Kellerman's intent is good humoured or a little malicious A 'potboiler' is defined as work produced only for financial gain written without concern for literary merit Kellerman's 'Potboiler' is a parody of an action thriller novel within a novel that is in itself a thriller Whimsical bordering on absurd at times it features the genres c

    Potboiler ePUB à Hardcover potboiler book, Potboiler PDF/EPUBAt the moment I feel as though I'm in an alternative universe I put this book in yesterday having started it the day before that but Goodreads doesn't see it Oh well That is an example of frustrating ephermeralness and that is partly how I might explain this book It is at times very funny I would say for the first half of the book it is very clever in almost an Italo Calvino way and I mean that positively I love Calvino Kellerman isn't as creative but he does surprise and amuse The second half didn't move as well There was still plenty of humor and I even was able to predict some of the things that happened but it felt almost heavy handed I love parody and satire but even in the best ones I am usually left feeling flat I'm realizing that off the top of my head the only truly funny book that I left feeling
