Jimbo Reviews Infernal Affairs

Over at Jim McCoy's blog, there's a new review of Infernal Affairs.

A few highlights.

..... I'm never moving to New York. Seriously, if this is the type of thing that goes down there I'm staying in Detroit because it's safer here.
Heh heh heh
....once again, Finn has given us a winner. This is one of those times where I really wish I had more hours in a day because I couldn't get enough of this book... And I couldn't get enough sleep either. I drive for a living, so I had to put the thing down, but UGGGHHHH. That doesn't mean I wanted to. I just had to do what was necessary to stay alive?

Oh, did I say "what was necessary to stay alive?"

I think I did!

Though this one ... if you've read the book, in involves The Highway Chase. If you haven't read it yet, then no spoilers for you. (and if you haven't read it yet, what the heck?)
There is one particular sequence in the book. It's one of those awesome things where it simultaneously feels like it was over way too soon and like you've been stuck in the action all day trying to figure out what happens next. Like, you want to know what happens but you don't want it to end. I don't know if that makes sense but it's true. 
To answer the question ... no, not a dream. Just having some fun.
Oh, and the other disclaimer: Infernal Affairs is the third in the series, coming after Hell Spawn and Death Cult. You could legitimately read Infernal Affairs as a standalone and enjoy it, but why would you? The first two books are awesome as well and, if you didn't read them already, you get the chance that I never had: To binge-read the entire first trilogy straight through. Although, I mean, I do own all three books and there's no law that says I can't RE-read them.
It's a good feeling when people want to reread the books.

I love villains that I hate. If you've read this blog you know precisely what I mean. Finn's villain this time around is a complete POS. It's good to root for the saint, but it's fun to root against Satan and all of his works as well.
A perfect line for Easter

Bottom Line: 5.0 out of 5 Flaming Drones
