Reviews - What do customers think about Bad News Bible: A Faith Zanetti mystery (Felony & Mayhem Mysteries)?
funny and exciting Jan 30, 2008
Don't read this book if you are trying to understand the Israel Palestine situation, do read it if you are interested in the world of ravaged war correspondents. Faith Zanetti is hilarious and astutely observed as are her friends and enemies in the press pack.
Don't waste your time or money Jan 16, 2005
I am reasonably certain that Miss Bundy has never set foot in Israel, and if she has, that she spent as much of her time boozing herself silly in the hotel bar, and as little of it actually observing anything about her, as do the pathetic protagonists of her truly mediocre book.
Had this book not been billed as "set against the backdrop of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict" one could never have guessed where the weak plot plays out. Not one of her middle eastern characters rings true to life, nor does she have anything at all to say about the conflict or its issues.
If you're interested in a vaguely seedy and slow moving mystery about a sorry bunch of addicts wallowing in self-pity and constantly in desperate need of a shrink, or their mummy, or maybe just another few rounds of vodka and valium -then go ahead and read this book. Otherwise, I'd give it a miss.
