Summary Amberville

Amberville

Chaufförerna i sina röda pickuper hämtade gamla mjukdjur ”de nötta och de trötta” som det hette Vart de gamla djuren fördes visste ingen men de försvann och sågs aldrig mer Det var inte konstigt att Chaufförerna var fruktade inte konstigt att man ville att det skulle finnas något slags lista; vad som helst som gjorde Chaufförernas nattliga körningar mindre slumpartade Ni. Eric now an adult and a successful advertising executive has been successful in putting his reckless and somewhat criminal youthful indiscretions behind him At least that s what he thought But then the local kingpin he once worked for shows up with a non negotiable proposition Find the hit list that his name is rud to be on and remove it from the list Otherwise he will kill Eric s girlfriend Now Eric must get the old gang back together and track down the Death List at any costA compelling and straight forward plot The big twist Eric the crime boss and all of the other characters in the book are stuffed animals They live in a world completely populated by stuffed animals in which the young and old are delivered and taken away by pick up trucks It is definitely an interesting plot twist But is it necessaryThe idea isn t completely original The Hollow Chocolate Bunnies of the Apocalypse Who Framed Roger Rabbit The Big Over Easy A Nursery Crime Meet the Feebles but that doesn t mean it isn t good It just means that the author might want to approach the concept from an original angleTim Davys does but he unfortunately decides to play it straight The idea of stuffed animals in a detective mystery novel begs for plenty of sarcastic tongue in cheek humor but Amberville avoids silly humor and instead relies on the subtle absurdities a small stuffed dove as a crime kingpin for example to deliver the humor on their own which they never really manage to do Even the author s approach to the way characters are named in Amberville simply a first name followed by the type of stuffed animal they are shows a lack of desire to truly have fun with the concept In short things that should be comical or farcical are just as boring as they would be in the real worldThe result is a story that could easily be translated into a realistic non fantasy setting and written as a straight hardboiled noir novel Amberville doesn t necessarily fail at making the concept work it just doesn t fully convince the reader that fantastical setting was crucial to the storyAmberville is supposed to reveal truths about human nature morality religion and the concepts of good and evil by having stuffed animals act out the scenarios in which these philosophical debates occur This is where the book does fail much in the same way that White Man s Burden failed Changing reality in some ironic or absurd way might seem deep and meaningful at first But unless there are other connections on multiple levels all that you are left with is an overused gimmickAmberville is a good book It has a compelling story interesting characters and enough twists and turns to keep a mystery lover interested until the end It just doesn t uite manage to be what it wanted to be and that s what keeps it from being a great book Hers to Protect youthful indiscretions behind him At least that s what he thought But then the local kingpin he once worked for shows up with a non negotiable proposition Find

Råka och Sam Gasell Motvilligt accepterar de att hjälpa sin tidigare ledare eftersom de uppfattar Dödslistan som ett rykte endast en överdriven myt Men nattlig spaning på röda pickuper bevisar att det måste finnas ett direktiv till Chaufförerna En obönhörlig ordning som talar om vilka mjukdjur som fraktas bort En hemlig Dödslista – upprättad av någon med den yttersta makt.

Cholas Duva kung i Ambervilles undre värld är övertygad om att det finns en Dödslista Och att han står på den Allt är över om inte hans namn stryks Eric Björn får under hot uppdraget att åtgärda detta Hitta listan och stryka Duvan Klarar han inte av det går det illa för hans käraste Emma Kanin Eric är skakad och söker genast upp sina gamla kumpaner Ormen Marek Tom Tom K. I was a little disappointed in this oneIt has a great concept a really neat conceit to use the phrase I like to use A sordid city full of stuffies come to life a noir vision of love and betrayal where Eric a tough talking teddy bear and Emma the bunny who is his sometimes disturbingly aloof lady love can make a life together in Amberville one of the four color coded uadrants of Mollisan Town at least until the even tougher talking gangster Nicholas Dove comes with his two gorillas one of them bright red to advance a proposition that Eric dare not refuse ButBut it didn t really grab me The prose just seemed stolid its short sentences choppy and rigid instead of laconic and punchy like a good two fisted detective novel This might be an issue with the translation I discovered after finishing that this book was translated from Swedish But also while the initial idea was great and there were occasional flashes of brilliance in how it was executed I m thinking in particular of a scene involving an effective if gruesome method of intimidating a bunch of cotton stuffed toughs the parts never seemed to hang together very well I never really got a sense of scale of the size of the stuffed animals in relation to their city nor did I get that feeling of yes I would never have thought of it but this is how it must be which comes from a well constructed fantasy world with its own strong internal consistencyTake the very name Amberville for example it doesn t seem to have any significance beyond being a way to separate Mollisan Town s neighborhoods And if there is any intentional connection between Mollisan s four color coded uadrants and the four colors of the Land of Oz it is never made at all clear There are parts here that are brilliant parts that are fascinating but they just don t add up to a coherent wholeI won t say this is a bad book and I m sure it ll find its niche among people who are hungry for this sort of experiment I just didn t get what I wanted out of it

    Amberville tries to be a lot of things It is a gritty gangster drama a fantasy world of stuffed animals living human like lives and a allegory about good and evil For the most part it is entertaining in a dark Animal Farm way Yet the author is simply doing too much in one tale It is even uestionable whether this particular story benefits at all from placing it in a fantasy setting I liked it but eventually became annoyed with it Essentia
