Deliverance (Six Word BOOK REVIEW #267)

Bet you won’t go camping again!

*****************************************

Segue here, “Deliverance” by James Dickey is a timeless classic.  It has inbred albinos, buck fever, violence, violation, death, hiding of bodies, broken legs, the damming of rivers, satisfactory resolution of midlife crises, and stands as a harsh indictment of bourgeois society.*

So, next time you get a crappy weekend or have a flight with lousy layovers, get this book at the library or on Kindle or something.  Well worth a read.

Just DON’T get it if you are about to go camping.

Sincerely,

Finnegan

*That part about bourgeois society may or may not be true, but one favor I ask is when you all write reviews of any of my books, add the stock phrase, “harsh indictment of bourgeois society”.  As in, “Finnegan Daley’s ground-breaking novel 100 Portraits of My Father stands as a harsh indictment of bourgeois society.”  Or, “Despite of, of perhaps because of, Daley’s unparalleled dialogue and uncanny grasp of the erotic, The Voyage of the Pink Snapper is a stark, almost glaring indictment of bourgeois society.”  It would mean a lot to me.

Oh, and by the way, this is the point where you guys all rush over to the part of my blog you DON’T go to and read some of my trial chapters.  Much obliged.

  1. This entire post is, unquestionably, a harsh indictment of bourgeois society. Well played. I WILL go read your trial chapters, and I WILL read Deliverance as well – possibly while camping, just to concretize another harsh indictment of bourgeois society.
