Eric, now an adult and a successful advertising executive, has been successful in putting his reckless and somewhat criminal youthful indiscretions behind him At least, that s what he thought But then the local kingpin he once worked for shows up with a non negotiable proposition Find the hit list that his name is rud to be on, and remove it from the list Otherwise, he will kill Eric s girlfriend Now, Eric must get the old gang back together and track down the Death List at any cost.A compelling and straight forward plot The big twist Eric, the crime boss, and all of the other characters in the book are stuffed animals They live in a world completely populated by stuffed animals, in which the young and old are delivered and taken away by pick up trucks It is definitely an interesting plot twist But is it necessary The idea isn t completely original The Hollow Chocolate Bunnies of the Apocalypse, Who Framed Roger Rabbit , The Big Over Easy A Nursery Crime, Meet the Feebles , but that doesn t mean it isn t good It just means that the author might want to approach the concept from an original angle.Tim Davys does, but he unfortu This novel reminded of the tale of the emperor s clothes Not because of a similar story, but because some people will see wondrous things while others will see nothing I m in the latter category.A Raymond Chandler style pot boiler with stuffed This is one of the top five weirdest books I have ever read It takes place in a world of stuffed animals, but that has both almost no bearing on the story and is key to the main plot What I mean is that it s never revealed that actually they re toys in a toystore or a messed up version of the 100 Acre Woods The fact that they are stuffed animals is not part of some plot twist The thought that it might be a twist kept distracting me the entire time trying to find out the clue But at the same time, the entire plot of the book, which in a way I don t wish to spoil, revolves around life and death depends entirely upon the fact that, as stuffed animals, they can t be killed in the ways that we can.Contributing to the strangeness of the book is the fact that it shifts from omniscient 3rd person to first person POVs in various chapters Two main characters are always in first person and a few auxiliary characters are in first person But the bulk of the main protagonists have 3rd person omniscient POVs Part of the trick there is that it s generally assumed that 3rd per Opini o no Existencialismo noir protagonizado por peluches animados S , en serio G nero Narrativa fant stica por

Bear has a happy life, married to the beautiful Emma Rabbit and with a good job in advertising But, in his past, Eric was involved with some shady characters, one of whom now comes calling Nicholas Dove, who has heard that his name is on the Death List, which means if the tales are to be believed that the Chauffeurs will shortly come to escort him on the ultimate one way journey Dove demands that Eric find the Death List and get his name removed from it, or Emma will be the one who pays the price The job should be straightforward enough, because the Death List is just a fable but Eric gets his old gang back together all the same and, of course, the truth proves complicated than anyone thought.So, this Scandinavian crime novel the author is Swedish Tim Davys is a pseudonym is far from the norm, and could have been ridiculous but it s not What is perhaps most striking about Amberville is that Davys tells his tale with a completely straight face one might laugh briefly at the

I was a little disappointed in this one.It has a great concept, a really neat conceit, to use the phrase I like to use A sordid city full of stuffies come to life, a noir vision of love and betrayal where Eric, a tough talking teddy bear and Emma, the bunny who is his sometimes disturbingly aloof lady love, can make a life together in Amberville, one of the four color coded quadrants of Mollisan Town, at least until the even tougher talking gangster Nicholas Dove comes with his two gorillas one of them bright red to advance a proposition that Eric dare not refuse ButBut it didn t really grab me The prose just seemed stolid, its short sentences choppy and rigid instead of laconic and punchy like a good two fisted detective novel This might be an issue with the translation I discovered after finishing that this book was translated from Swedish But also while the initial idea was great and there were occasional flashes of brilliance in how it was executed I m thinking in particular of a scene involving an effective, if gruesome, method of intimidating a bunch of cotton stuffed toughs , the parts never seemed to hang together very well I never really got a sense of scale, of the size of the stuffed animals in relation to their city, nor did I get that feeling of yes, I would never have though Amberville je m sto, kter pod na prvn pohled oby ejn m a pokojn m zevn j kem skr v spoustu p ny, n sil a temn ch tajemstv A naru it v spokojen a do posledn doby bezstarostn ivot m e cokoliv T eba n v t va nejv t ho mafi nsk ho bosse, kter v m d zd nliv ne e iteln kol, kter mus te splnit, jinak se v m pomst na va milovan en A v m nezb v nic jin ho ne se zkontaktovat s d vn mi p teli z dob, kdy jste se je t nem li tak dob e a proto jste se pohybovali na temn stran m sta v ce se hlavn hrdina dost v k spln n n ro n ho kolu a odhalen nejv t ho a nejtemn j ho tajemstv m sta Amberville, t m v c na povrch vyplouv antagonismus v part b val ch kump n a tak r zn tajemstv a h ky z d tstv a ml d nejen hlavn ho hrdiny Kniha v born navazuje na klasiky nru noir a v knize se dynamicky st d oby ejn fyzick n sil s rafinovan m psychick m terorem Autor, kter p ekvapiv do doby, kdy se rozhodl napsal knihu, dnou s m nep e etl tedy pokud nepo t te komiksy a grafick rom ny Skv le si hraje s hlavn mi postavami, kdy je ten po n kter ch kapitol ch nucen zcela p ehodnotit sv j pohled nejen na hlavn ho hrdinu ale i na charakter a chov n jin ch postav A ty nejsou v t inou moc sympatick Sp e naopak Boj o moc, intriky a manipulace prostupuj cel m m stem jako pojivo, kter dr v e pohromad Ani si nevzpomenu, zda v p b hu najdeme n jak ho kladn ho hrdinu Mo n tak v za tku p b hu a v dal sti v m autor uk e, e v echno je jinak a dan postava nen zas tak fajn, jak jste si je t p ed p r str nkami mysl
