    eBook american revolutionary war.co Î Robbie's Wife Kindle ↠ robbie's free, wife pdf, Robbie's Wife PDF/EPUBWashed up screenwriter Jack Stone goes to England to get away from things and hopefully get back into the swing of writing However the wife of the man Jack is staying with proves to be a much interesting distraction Interesting enough to kill forRobbie's Wife is a tale in the mold of The Postman Always Rings Twice or Double Indemnity the tale of an affair that leads to murder The first two thirds of the book are worthy of James M Cain himself Robbie's wife is something else and you can't really blame Jack Stone for falling for her at first anywayCricket and baseball both have batsmen but it isn't the same game is it? That's a uote from the book and I'm using it to illustrate why I thought the last third of the book sucked Hill had me going right up until the big event happened Then the book slows down to a snails pace and all comparisons to Cain and other greats go right out the window Seriously the last 60 pages tempted

    eBook american revolutionary war.co Î Robbie's Wife Kindle ↠ robbie's free, wife pdf, Robbie's Wife PDF/EPUBThis has a well done dreamy style and a stunning sense of place it's obviously rare to see a noir novel set on a Dorset sheep farm and Russell makes me wish there were The best parts of the book are all grounded in that fatalistic setting The landscape is beautifully evoked and Hill uses it well letting you see the natural beauty and sense of community at the same time as he makes you feel the profound isolation and the sense of being trapped He also gets some great set pieces apocalyptic and unusual out of his

    eBook american revolutionary war.co Î Robbie's Wife Kindle ↠ robbie's free, wife pdf, Robbie's Wife PDF/EPUBRobbie's Wife by Russell Hill is a fascinating well crafted book that I highly recommend Why do we need another remake of the tried and true themes of Postman Always Rings Twice and Double Indemnity? Well for one thing it simply isn't accurate to call this a remake even though the themes of jealousy and murder are thereThis story is about a washed up sixty year old Hollywood screenwriter who as Fitzgerald once said just woke up one day and ran out of ideas There was nothing left for Jack Stone to write about Not that he had been all that successful to begin with but he simply had nothing left in the tank He seized upon the idea of writing in a different climate a different atmosphere Perhaps if he traveled halfway around the world he could find the peace of mind that would allow him to burst forward with new ideas So Jack Stone finds a

    eBook american revolutionary war.co Î Robbie's Wife Kindle ↠ robbie's free, wife pdf, Robbie's Wife PDF/EPUBROBBIE'S WIFE is as good as a book can be and still remain mediocre The writing is top notch and the noir ish atmosphere pitch perfect but the plot twists are underwhelming the pacing slow and the story worst of all hard to swallowA big problem with ROBBIE'S WIFE is that despite being an emotional roller coaster of a tale it is narrated almost without emotion This is especially strange considering it is written in the first person But apart from lust I could never figure out exactly what the narrator was feeling at any given moment making him impossible to relate toAnd yet Robbie's wife seems to have little trouble reading him like an open book sensing him capable of some wildly improbable behavior for a sixty year old writerIn

    eBook american revolutionary war.co Î Robbie's Wife Kindle ↠ robbie's free, wife pdf, Robbie's Wife PDF/EPUBThis is one of those books that I like having finished it than I did while I was reading it The first 150 pages are indeed slow and I am not sure that they adeuately prepare for the book's third act But the that I think about the flaws in this book the less I am sure that they are flaws For example the book's narrator Jack Stone is an over the hill Hollywood screenwriter who takes a working holiday in Britain to revitalize his career Occasionally in the novel we see mediocre snippets from his screenplay in progress and we see one long section which is utterly incompetent This long section is largely expository in a way that a professional screenwriter would never be In other words it looks like a screenplay written by someone who has never seen a screenplay And readers are supposed to believe that this guy is a professional scr
