    1. John Mcfetridge has crafted three (to date) interwoven novels set in modern Toronto a city filled to the brim with numerous ethnic groups, corruption, gentrification, and organized crime. The latter represented mainly by the Hell’s Angels (thinly disguised here) who have in recent years seized violent control of Canada’s rackets. Mcfetridge writes these novels as a dead pan documentaries moving from character to character (some appearing once, some as ongoing characters) from cops to crooks [...]


    2. Reading this gave me headaches. I can't put my finger on exactly what it was about the writing style,but I found it truly dreadful to read.The story wasn't that good either, to compensate, and the characters were neither well nor fully drawn.I found it just a complete waste of time.


    3. Kelli relaxed. She'd seen the inside of a lot of Beamers and Mercs and, hell, even Land Rovers since coming to Toronto a month back. She looked at the guy, cheapskate biz boy in his thirties, and thought he wasn't so bad, really, just acting tough. It was always good to get the first one of the night out of the way.She looked up and saw a man's face, floating, hanging in the sky. He looked her right in the eye.Then he smashed into the windshield.The cheapskate screamed like a girl.And Kelli just [...]


    4. Taken from my blogRecently, I pulled a copy of Everybody Knows This is Nowhere off the shelf and dove right in. "Dove right in" is a pretty apt set up on this book, when I come to think of it, though that's probably all I should say about that. Let's just say that something unexpected happens to a hooker and a john in the course of their normal transactions. It's typical of McFetridge's stories, I think that once the cops arrive, the guy basically just wants to get out of there, but the girl is [...]


    5. Absolutely TERRIBLE book! Has to be one of the worst things I ever forced myself to complete! I'll continue this rant tomorrow after having time to digest this pile of garbage! I'm scratching my head trying to understand how I made myself finish this mess! I guess i'm just a massoschist! I found the writing to be very amateurish and very difficult to follow. The book jumps from one set of characters to another in the middle of chapters with no warning making it extremely difficult to keep track [...]


    6. The action spreads quickly in this dialogue friendly novel. A man falls from or is thrown from a high rise, a 10 year old girl is abducted and rescued, a torso is found, immigration issues are brought out and drug deals are everywhere.Gord Bergeron is a detective in Toronto. He's back on the road after a period of desk duty while his wife was fighting a losing battle with cancer. His partner is Det. Armstrong.Sharon MacDonald is a dealer who wants Richard Trmeblay to front her 4 lbs of weed but [...]


    7. He got me from page 1. I knew I liked McFetridge's style because of some clips I'd read on his website. He's honest and dark and understands how people work. The book was better than I'd hoped; sexier, grittier, and somehow more emotional. Here's why:1.The immediacy. I felt like I was walking through the book, inside the characters' heads, seeing, feeling, even tasting the Scotch they were drinking.2.The plot. I live a stable, conservative life, free of crime and intrigue. Because I felt like I [...]


    8. Really liked it. Pulp fiction set in the condohell of Toronto. A lot of shady characters you can picture existing: a crooked cop, shady masseuse, drug dealer mom on house arrest, bikers relocating from Montreal and an immigrant artist turned forger. The ending is a bit too quick, but otherwise a great novel. Will definitely read more from this author.


    9. 3.5A fun read with great dialogue. Sympathetic "bad guys" and unsympathetic ones too. Same is true for the cops. So this is likely pretty realistic.Plot moves quickly and characters are well-developed.Great summer read.
