So much was going on that it was kind of exhausting Very cleverly plotted funny and satiric and I think I understood what was going on than I On His Majestys Service did with Who Censored Roger Rabbit Not as fresh as that one though somehow But it is nice that view spoilerRoger is a good guy like he was in the movie I was upset when he turned out not to be at the end of Censored I think Gary Wolf had gotten attached to Roger too and was glad that writing this seuel to the movie gave him another chance to work with him hide spoiler Worth the read simple for the non stop assault of hard boiled similes metaphors andouble entendres Not as good as the first but then sopho books never are Weird in that some of the same characters are back again even though they were killed off in the first book Oh well cartoons will be cartoons This novel feels like the Framed movie was closely tied to it than the first novel Different Class did Not that I know which novel was the base for the movie Possibly both There are scenes that seem almost cut and pasted from both novels into that movie It mentionsip as a Toon killer and Toon Town unlike the first novel Baby Herman is indistinguishably unchanged throughout Gone with the Wind re imagined was a twist Better story than the first one In the vein of Mike Hammer or Sam Spade the similes were way over the top and uite bountiful The whole storyline was centered around the production of Gone With The Wind In fact Eddie is hired by David O Selznick himself This leads to my biggest objection That film was released in 1939 This timeline puts it after the WWII Eddie even mentions his war record a few times Other than that the returning characters are likable and we learn a few things about the Valiant family too It s a Good Mystery But Takes Too Long to Get ThereI really enjoyed Wolf s first Roger Rabbit novel and I enjoyed the film Who Framed Roger Rabbit uite a bit so I expected to like this book a good The Essential Good Food Guide deal Iid or less The problem is that it overindulges in some of the pulp fiction tropes to the point where the novel became a bit of a slog to read I Textbook of Wisdom dug the characters and the mystery but it was just exhausting to get through this book at times I could only recommend it to mega Roger Rabbit fans I might be inclined to go like 25 on this I was never tempted to abandon the book It wasn t a slog and I was engaged enough at least to want to know what happened in the endBut it also wasn t the eual of the first one I think the criticalifference is tha. Roger Rabbit is sure that Clark Gable has not only stolen the role of Rhett Butler in the soon to be shot Gone With the Wind bu.
T where before Eddie Valiant was a low rent Philip Marlowe here his is like Steve Martin s Rigby Reardon from the film Dead Men Don t Wear Plaid That is to say the style of the prose was akin to a serious In Defence of Dogs detective story but with the absurd and fantastical elements lent by the toons With our protagonist being over the top the story lacks a straight man and suffers for itI think there is also an element of seuelitis here complete with a bigger star studded cast and higher stakes than the previous installment It probablyoesn t help that this is effectively a follow up to both the original book and its famous film adaptation so was catering to two audiencesThe element of commentary on race relations is still present but only in passing reference like a character referencing wage iscrimination and obviously ifferent standards of justice I honestly think it should have been left out entirely given that there can be no clear analogue in circumstance between people who The City in Mind differ only in skin tone and those that cannot exist in even the same taxonomyIn any case another one Ion t regret reading but will not be picking up again I m assuming that this book was written as a seuel to the movie and not the original book because Roger Rabbit has a completely Revenge (The Red Ledger different personality and is apparently notead after all It seems as if the author is trying entirely too hard to be funny in this book Every single observation no matter how minute is stretched out into some ridiculous simile metaphor or pun As Sweet Brown would say in this case Ain t no bunny got time for thatFINAL IMPRESSIONThe author No One Wants You definitely tried way too hard Gary K Wolf s follow up to Who Censored Roger Rabbit is Who P P P Plugged Roger Rabbitanother entertaining tale with the same characters as the first book The clich hard boiledetective language is still intact and smartly applied leaving room for The City Of Heavenly Tranquillity double entendres and interesting ways ofescribing scenes and actionsIn this book which is not a preuel and it is sort of a seuel the story was retconned with Jessica explainingthat the previous events of the first book were Penguins Poems for Life dreamed by her sort of a cheat but it allows the adventures to continue Roger Baby Herman and Enigman are up for the role of Rhett Butler in Selznick s Gone With the Wind but to finance the movie Selznick needs extra moola because he is beyond broke A box left on hisesk contains a secret formula to turn Toons into humans and vice versa The box and secret formula isap.
