The Silver Hearted: A Novel

by toonboi on May 31, 2010

I really did not care for this novel all that much. I believe that it comes down to that it just was not the novel I thought it was going to be. I found it difficult to get into from the beginning. I kept asking myself, ?What?!? Perhaps the author?s style of writing was something of a turn off for me. It felt like I was trying too hard to stay or keep up with David McConnell. Finally, some small relief came at chapter four. However, by the end of the fast read novel, I felt that I should re-read the first three chapters again to fully understand the why of the actions of the twenty-dollar sailor. I don?t believe that I will read another of David McConnell?s books again. I also don?t have any desire to keep this book on my shelf for a future read. I got through it, which I promised myself, and that is all I can justly do for it. The narrator is hired by a questionable casino owner to transport boxes of silver coins amounting to $200,000 US dollars. As if it isn?t hard enough to be caught with this many curious boxes, he must do this in the political revolution of a very poor port city. With the aid of his twenty-dollar sailor, the narrator is able to get the treasure out of the fighting in Z. Can he get the boxes to his employer when the police, the young twenty-dollar sailor, and other questionable men are looking for him and the missing gold, not silver?
