Reviews of The Stone Monkey

Overall customer rating: 3.000


by Zanz on Dec 7, 2007

"The Stone Monkey" is a Deaver Lincoln Rhyme formula. The main characters are flat, as usual. Sachs really may as well be a man. It seems Deaver only finds women admirable if they have male hobbies and attitudes. They still have to look great, though. The villain is the most interesting -- better than usual -- but women are nothing but despised sex objects to him too. I realize he is Chinese and the culture is very patriarchal but it was still disgusting. I doubt Deaver realizes that women are his largest audience. Rampant sexism typical of Deaver's books aside, I found this book better than most of the later Rhyme books. The plot has an unusual millieu and is never dull. The book is hard to put down.
