the vachss book bought last month in fact - did i enjoy it? - haha, i’ve read worse i suppose - it’s competent and very readable but ultimately shallow as “a novel” - it gives the impression of being fast-paded (3 page chapters) but little really happens - the characters are all laughably exaggerated and clichéd: cardboard cutouts - basically it’s comicbook superhero stuff rather than “gritty realism” - the hard as nails anti-hero very obviously (and obnoxiously) a fantasised portrayal of vachss himself - yeah, i have a problem with vachss! - in fact i have problems understanding any child abuse caped crusaders who are so sickened by it yet devote their whole lives to wallowing in it - his thing with rottweilers and pit bulls also questionable - how much difference is there between training a dog to kill and “grooming” a child? - tho of course vachss is training such volatile animals to comfort abused children(!) - precious few details on the actual specifics of that - i s’pose the mutts just trained not to bite the little traumatised kids heads off?! (google “rottweiler mauls baby” for a dose of gritty realism)
