Gunslinger Girl Reviews

  • James Patterson

    A girl who can draw a pistol faster than any man. A United States devastated by a Second Civil War. A decadent city teeming with vice and a particular kind of virtue.

    imagines a new West where gunslinger Serendipity "Pity" Jones seeks her fortune. And you won't be able to put this book down until you finish Pity's thrilling story. I know I couldn't.

    I didn't know

    . It is with great pleasure, ladies and gentlemen, to declare that

    existed before the day it arrived on my doorstep. I didn't know what to expect, only what the cover and the blurb suggested:

    !

    After a devastating Civil War that left the country in ruins, the Confederation of North America arose, trying to stabilize its rule using raw brutality against the Patriots and a mix of propaganda and strict rules towards its supporters. Serendipity 'Pity' Jones, in a desperate need to escape from her cruel father, fled from her commune taking with her only her mother's six-shooters. An unfortunate occurence led her to Cessation, the City of Evil, where no laws apply and the greatest show on Earth,

    , gives mesmerizing and deadly performances. Death here becomes a spectacle. Pity finds a home in this peculiar city, but living in Cessation, performing in the Theatre, has a terrible cost. Between ambitious politicians and cunning bounty hunters, Pity faces the dilemma whether Cessation is worth saving or it should be left to crumble.

    While you read

    , you realise one thing: Theatre Vespertine is more than a show. It's a challenge to all sensations, a vibrant spectacle that feeds the masses and gives them blood to quell their thirst. But when the spectacle is over, when the curtains fall and the blood is mopped up, it doesn't mean that the performance is. For even

    , before the gangs take control or the victims of freedom start piling up.

    ; she doesn't elaborate much on the world-building, and this is one of the rare occasions that it's fine by me because she manages to impart the essence, the danger of her world without fanfares and boring details, but her story is still

    , especially once you turn the first pages.

    In Cessation, and Pity's world in general, there is no black and white, bad guys versus good guys. All of them are

    , using any means necessary to achieve their goals and exploiting weaknesses of their enemies' and allies' alike to their own gain. In this parade of dubious, intriguing characters, of prostitutes and performers and artists and politicians, Pity Jones is the leading star. For the sake of honesty, I have to admit that I didn't feel connected to her character, but this detachment didn't prevent me from enjoying her story. Other characters, like Max and Selene and Beau provoked stronger reactions (whether good or bad you have to read

    in order to understand), and they were

    and a great addition to the plot.

    Judging by the way this book ended, I'm fairly positive there will be a sequel, one I am looking forward to reading!
