Just finished Dolan's Cadillac-- wow! A very intense, fantastic read. Long enough it felt like a Novella more than a short story. Revenge pure and simple. I really liked the fact that the details are light and easy while the revenge is thick and heavy. Reminds me of the Tell Tale Heart -- as I'm sure it's supposed to. Absolutely brilliantly executed..
King allows the reader time to deeply inhale the sweet taste of revenge. He isn't afraid to tell the story! When King comes up with a plot that good, I have to admire his restraint in not creating an entire novel. But he let the story tell itself..
The trap Robinson builds is complicated enough, I found myself wanting a drawing. seriously -- i can picture this, until you add pavement and so on..
The story is set to be a movie released in December of 09. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0963965/.
Check out Lilja's library for a review of the film. Since I haven't seen the movie, all I can say is, "Uhhh, I liked the trailer.":.
