[ARC] Hap and Leonard: Blood and Lemonade by Joe R. Lansdale


Leggi questo articolo in italiano

The novel belongs to the famous series based on the adventures of Hap and Leonard, notorious protagonists of lots of Joe Lansdale’s novels.

The book is a mosaic one: Hap and Leonard remembers some stories of their childhood – like when the met each other – and tell them to their families and friends.

In the end its a collection of stories linked by a common thread; like other mosaic novel or collections not every story is at the same narrative level, and only some of them leave a mark.

One of the major topic is racism (the setting is mostly in Texas) and the struggle to overcome prejudices (Hap’s mother is a truly positive example).

Overall it’s a nice book, but I still prefer the “standard” novels of the series that deal with a single aventure with a wider scope.

Thanks to the publisher for providing me the copy necessary to write this review.

* Hap and Leonard: Blood and Lemonade by Joe R. Lansdale ★★★☆☆
