Savages - Don Winslow Easy to finish because the pacing is (thankfully) very fast. Difficult to get through because it was like listening to an obnoxious try-too-hard spinning some wishful fantasy about nymphomaniac rich girls and white guys from the suburbs making it big in the drug trade and then righteously shooting up enemies like Rambo. Actually, that's exactly what it is. Over-eager, like a teen boy jumping up and down with excitement over a story meant to impress but which instead exasperates.
