I love MacDonald s 1950 s take on noir fiction This was very different than the other novels I had read such as Cape Fear although he had done something similar but much, much better in The Damned In this case none of the multiple stories were very interesting in themselves including the lame one about the escaping criminals He tried to tie some of it together with the guy who created the accident with his tire blowing out but that seemed very weak also. Round up to four and a half stars I liked this very much and it s funny to think that a plot summary for this novel would not have piqued my interest at all It goes something like this We meet a bunch of characters in different cars The cars crash at the midpoint of the novel and the rest of the story is about what happens to the characters who survived MacDonald makes it sing.For those who have read other books by JDM and need some assurance, there s none of the puritanical sermonizing in Round up to four and a half stars I liked this very much and it s funny to think that a plot summary for this novel would not have piqued my interest at all It goes something like this We meet a bunch of characters in different cars The cars crash at the midpoint of the novel and the rest of the story is about what happens to the characters who survived MacDonald makes it sing.For those who have read other books by JDM and need some assurance, there s none of the puritanical sermonizing in the this one MacDonald keeps the characters front and center It makes for a nice bonus Also, I can t leave off without mentioning that the author does a surprisingly good job at writing some of the story from the point of view of a teenage girl 25 dec 15, 71 from macdonald for me kindle another take on the multiple character tellingabout 25% into story and each chapter is a take on life prior to the main event a multi vehicle traffic accident after 71 stories, i ve read and enjoyed this type of narrative beforeand tooone of the last multi char p.o.v stories, didn t enjoy it as much go figure and with the kindle, it s not like you handle a book with pages each time you set to read so titles and covers are not bright and f 25 dec 15, 71 from macdonald for me kindle another take on the multiple character tellingabout 25% into story and each chapter is a take on life prior to the main event a multi vehicle traffic accident after 71 stories, i ve read and enjoyed this type of narrative beforeand tooone of the last multi char p.o.v stories, didn t enjoy it as much go figure and with the kindle, it s not like you handle a book with pages each time you set to read so titles and covers are not bright and fresh, or spine cracked, in memory or on the shelf behind you 26 dec 15 finished an okay story macdonald has done better and this was only so so guess i don t like the multiple character p.o.v stories as much as the others, the stories where he focuses the story through one main character uncle bernie is strange, macabre there was something else that seemedoffwhat was it ummmm.forget was it to do w the money ohnow i remember the authorities would have caught the bad guy much easier had they done what they would have done, had this been real by simply checking the area lodging they did not so we had that scene at the yard where the vehicles are behind a fence so almost a three star best read it without too much in the way of attention, possibly enjoy itokay story nothingnothing less.onward upward This is a wonderful book, which brings a bunch of folks with different stories all together to the same spot on the highway, where an accident will occur Great book. Starts somewhat macabre with a bad accident, almost put it down Glad I continued though, JDMc came through yet again with some real life people with real life problems and situations One of the better of his non McGee books. Lives joined by the unexpectedWe get to know those involved in the accidentally before the event so it s outcome becomes the next or final step in their lives Certainly automobiles and driving is safer now than it was then Human error remains a central factor even when there is a mechanical failure like a blown tire The reader is led into various degrees of sympathy and in a couple cases dislike It becomes a story to the reader gets involved and MacDonald accomplishes that well. A before, during, and after account of a multi vehicle accident told from multiple viewpoints.Well structured and well written, although dated. This is a very unusual and unique book It is often classified as a mystery, however, it is really about people and their very moving strengths and obvious frailties I had two separate recommendations to read this author from friends that do not know each other and are separated by hundreds of miles The author passed away over 25 years ago and among his dozens of books he wrote this effort in 1955 It holds up well over time for it s basic truths, but is cute when refering to filling up a gas This is a very unusual and unique book It is often classified as a mystery, however, it is really about people and their very moving strengths and obvious frailties I had two separate recommendations to read this author from friends that do not know each other and are separated by hundreds of miles The author passed away over 25 years ago and among his dozens of books he wrote this effort in 1955 It holds up well over time for it s basic truths, but is cute when refering to filling up a gas tank for 7.80 and for the yellow octagan stop signs Without giving the story away it is basically about a dozen people that meet on a freeway in the eastern U.S., how they got there and how they dealt with their meeting The punch line, however, was that half of them died in the meeting which was a terrible high speed multi car accident The only thing that makes this book a mystery is that one of the cars were driven by criminals A hard to put down and easy read which I would recommend to anyone with an interest in this genre and a strong stomach {Free Epub} Æ Cry Hard, Cry Fast ⚜ A gunman on the lamAyear old vampA used up B girlA guilt stricken widowerA leftover mistressAll zeroing in on a route to sudden death The catastrophe is the main character The lives of different people are brought together in a tragic, fatal automobile pileup MacDonald summarizes the lives of each of these people and their thoughts and emotions just before the accident There is a runaway bank robber gunman and his partner their passenger, a aging bar girl a mistress to an executive trying to break off on her own, a couple trying to iron out problems by going on vacation, a truck driver, and a business executive with his m The catastrophe is the main character The lives of different people are brought together in a tragic, fatal automobile pileup MacDonald summarizes the lives of each of these people and their thoughts and emotions just before the accident There is a runaway bank robber gunman and his partner their passenger, a aging bar girl a mistress to an executive trying to break off on her own, a couple trying to iron out problems by going on vacation, a truck driver, and a business executive with his mistress This is a very cleverly constructed book The characters are interesting as their individual lives and problems are further affected by the catastrophe, the main character In a little over 150 pages, MacDonald creates suspense and covers the wide range of emotions humans experience every day The wrong place at the wrong time, life is a game of inches, an unsafe condition and an unsafe act, no matter what you think an accident is, it is all on display Then the aftermath guilt, anger, sorrow, avarice This is one that I enjoyed immensely
