    Someone I greatly admire in the book world was very excited to receive The Gun Seller as a Christmas gift which I pretty much took as an ultra credible recommendation The audio was at my library and I snapped it up I didn't pay any at

    I bought this in hardback from Waterstones in Bromley when it first came out; I have a feeling I was revising for my A levels at the time A lot of comedians were publishing novels back then – Hugh's friend Stephe

    The only reason I read this book? You guessed it Hugh Laurie Anything to which his name is attached is worth a looksee I'm not typically a fan of spy novels so I must admit that some of the spoofing was probably lost on me However Laurie obviously enjoys the English language and bends and twists it to wit laced results

The Gun Seller

Thomas Lang es un ex policía y ahora pistolero a sueldo Un día recibe la visita de un tal McClusky uien le ofrece cien. I would like to please find the person who in the description of this book promised an uproarious cocktail of comic zingers and give them my best Grandma Lydia look If you are NOT familiar with the Grandma Lydia look which you probably aren t since the chances of you actually having met my grandmother are slim to none I will explain This is the look you get from a tiny 5 foot tall sweetest Eastern European grandmother that makes you stop in your tracks and beg forgiveness for anything you ever did or will ever do Because she KNOWS you did something wrong and firmly believes that a stern look alone should suffice to set you on the right path And you bet your ass it will I ve been working on that look too so someday it can be re christened as Grandma Nataliya look That s my big aspiration in life I m not even joking about it Seriously But wait a second you say Are you trying to tell us that Hugh Laurie THE Hugh Laurie THE comic genius is NOT FUNNY in this book Well not exactly This book is funny and smart and all that but it really straddles the line between that and uncomfortable because Laurie uses humor and satire and parody extremely well to showcase uite a few things about our world and ourselves that are uncomfortable unsettling and in the end not as much funny as disturbing His humor in this book is freuently the euivalent of that uncomfortable startled half giggle that people involuntarily utter to their sheer dismay as they see something rather bad happening His humor serves as a defense mechanism in this book that should not be funny but is using humor and parody as a weapon Because what does it mean to say that things aren t going well Compared to what You can say compared to how things were going a couple of hours ago or a couple of years ago But that s not the point If two cars are speeding towards a brick wall with no brakes and one car hits the wall moments before the other you can t spend those moments saying the second car is much better off than the first Death and disaster are at our shoulders every second of our lives trying to get at us Missing a lot of the time A lot of miles on the motorway without a front wheel blow out A lot of viruses that slither through our bodies without snagging A lot of pianos that fall a minute after we ve passed Or a month it makes no difference So unless we re going to get down on our knees and give thanks every time disaster misses it makes no sense to moan when it strikes Us or anyone else Because we re not comparing it with anything And anyway we re all dead or never born and the whole thing really is a dreamThere you see That s a funny sideSidespittingly funny this book is not And it is not meant to be such The humor is uses is what we came to associate with uintessential Britishness dry and deadpan and almost serious Which is fitting for a book that after a first chapter indeed filled with the promised zingers uickly heads down the path of exposing monetary greed and terrorism and secret wars waged for little else but money and the overarching conspiracies that in the light of many events of our messed up modern world hit uite close to home The only good thing I ve ever noticed about money the only positive aspect of an otherwise pretty vulgar commodity is that you can use it to buy thingsOh by the way it was written in 1996 but feels as true as it can be a decade and a half later Because things have probably only got worse And all we can do is laugh helplessly about them It is the middle of December now and we are about to travel to Switzerland where we plan to ski a little relax a little and shoot a Dutch politician a littleNow I m not all that familiar with the spythrillerBond esue or whatever you call it genre But even I can easily spot the parodies of those on every page Thomas Lang our protagonist whom I could not imagine as anyone else but Mr Laurie himself How could I not You tell me while looking at that picture is essentially a good guy with a military past and manners a la Mr Bond a bit He gets offered uite a handsome sum of money for the life of a certain American businessman who by the way comes euipped with a lovely daughter with beautiful teeth honorably refuses it and the next thing he knows ends up swept up in the uite substantial international conspiracy with a first hand participation in a few terrorist acts to boot With uite depressing things seen through every humor laden passage Where simple stupid greed is what runs everything really And that s depressing yeahI liked it uite a bit even though there were a few parts in the middle where I was tempted to put this book down and forget about it I m just not that into the genre that Laurie parodies here after all and sometimes immersing myself into this story was not that easy But ultimately every time something in the way Hugh Laurie writes ended pulling me back into the story And he rewarded me with the Fuck this all this shit is depressing and nothing is ever likely to change feeling in the end which I assume could have been the underlying message of this story The way the world and humanity are irrevocably fucked up Not the comedic zingers So don t read this for funny Read this for the serious please 35 stars and I plan to read all the future literature works by Mr Laurie if this gentleman desires to create And I will leave you with this apt and actually funny observation of Mr Laurie s protagonist on the bird strike of the aircraft This rather unfairly in my view made it sound as if it was the bird s fault as if the little feathered chap had deliberately tried to head butt twenty tons of metal travelling in the opposite direction at just under the speed of sound out of spite Master of Maramba y ahora pistolero a sueldo

Mil dólares por asesinar a Alexander Woolf un empresario americano con negocios en Inglaterra y Escocia Indignado Lang. This book restored my faith in celebrity novels The last one I read by a former TV hero of mine was so disappointing but Hugh Laurie is a first rate wordsmith and an excellent storyteller I already knew he was a brilliant actor I m midway through The Night Manager and his performance is sending shivers down my spine a comic genius and a super blues musician so he is way multi talented than most of us This book is an action thriller which is not my usual fare I suspect he has a great comic novel in him in which case I ll be at the head of the readers ueuing up But if he writes another action novel I ll still be jostling for a good position I can t let talent like this just pass me by
