Review: God Is A Bullet
God Is A Bullet by Boston Teran
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
a stunning first novel, unrelenting in its ferocity, with realistic characters scattered throughout and protagonists who act from a consistent sense of righteousness, no matter which side of the narrative they inhabit. There are no compromises at play here: the narrative is brutal, and unrelenting, and as tough as the transformation of Bob Hightower into Bob Whatever is, it's nothing against watching the struggle as 'supporting' character Case fights against a return to her 'Headcase' beginnings. The only weakness is an occasional lapse into overwritten internal monologues that verge on hysteria, but it's allowable in such a highly-strung and tense story.
