    PDF 12th century.co ✓ Hit and Run Epub Ç Hit and PDF \ Hit and ebok, Hit and Run eBookJust didn’t do it for me I’m afraid This is slightly unfair on the author because the last book I read was an absolutely corker of a read and everything else compares unfavourably However I gave it 50% but just had to give up on itMy issue here I think is that in ‘Hit and Run’ there was poor character development I didn’t like anyone I didn’t like the protagonist I didn’t like his girlfriend or brother I didn’t like the villains and I didn’t even like ‘busty’ Rose And I certainly didn’t like Adele although she was the most interesting It just seemed highly unlikely that a socialite Sloane Ranger type of gangster’s moll would take a shine to a pill popping junior reporter like BillyAnd because I didn’t like any of them I couldn’t care less about what happened to any of them I was mildly intereste

    PDF 12th century.co ✓ Hit and Run Epub Ç Hit and PDF \ Hit and ebok, Hit and Run eBookA good page turner both in terms of the action and suspense and the moral dilemma that the protagonist had to go through It really is true that emotional and mental stress will eventually translate to something physical I believe it is the way of God or of nature for the unbelievers of bearing down on a person until he is so consumed by guilt that there is nothing else that can offer relief aside from owning up Of course there are the thugs out there that no amount of bearing down seem to get on them but really who knows? After everything all of us will meet our end; it just depends on us what condition we'd like to be when that happens

    PDF 12th century.co ✓ Hit and Run Epub Ç Hit and PDF \ Hit and ebok, Hit and Run eBookThe first Doug Johnstone book I read was 'Dead Beat' which was a great novel and featured a character called Billy Blackstone Billy has uite a past which although was talked about a bit in 'Dead Beat' didn't feature as a huge part of the story So I was interested when I discovered that Billy Blackstone is the main protagonist of Doug's earlier book 'Hit Run' and I wanted to discover the history behind Billy's downfall and the dizzying nightmare trip he took to get there Billy Blackstone is a likeable character He was likeable in 'Dead Beat' and he's even likeable in 'Hit Run' He's a young man with a clear cut conscience Whilst driving home from a party with his girlfriend and his older brother all of them drunk he hits someone and then drives off in a panic Billy soon starts to struggle with what he's done He's soon sucked into a nightmare of guilt retribution and violence Only three people really know what happened that night but the uestion is c

    PDF 12th century.co ✓ Hit and Run Epub Ç Hit and PDF \ Hit and ebok, Hit and Run eBookA rather clever shot of noir in the form of Hit Run served as my introduction to the writing of Doug Johnstone and the premise made for an irresistible opportunity; the chance to witness the worst case scenario as a life spirals out of control all from the

    PDF 12th century.co ✓ Hit and Run Epub Ç Hit and PDF \ Hit and ebok, Hit and Run eBookThis is an interesting noir ish novel I was torn between giving this a 3 and a 4 as I felt that although the narrative was interesting and well structured and Johnstone's prose style is strong owing much to the hardboiled school of American crime fiction which he cites as an influence on this novel in the interview contained at the end of the book some elements struck me as

    PDF 12th century.co ✓ Hit and Run Epub Ç Hit and PDF \ Hit and ebok, Hit and Run eBookI'm not sure what it is about Edinburgh but it seems to be absolutely perfect for a bit of twisted noir This book is a classic example of this what you would expect from a book which comes with a recommendation from Ian Rankin really It certainly does have some excellent scenes and hints at some memorable characters my bone of contention is that maybe some of these seemed a little two dimensional maybe too much of a broad stereotype Also I do feel that the ending is maybe a little too moral and too much of a cliche to fit with the rest of the book
