Book review: Skin Game

Skin GameSkin Game by Max Allan Collins

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Song: blink-182 – I Miss You

Raise of hands from the ones who remember these two at their best and quirkiest?

As a Dark Angel fan I was happy to know that the cliffhanger we were treated to in the end of season two wasn’t the end. The canon continued in the books format. And I had these books for a bunch of years before I finally read them. Why? Because with all the transgenic stuff I wanted my english to get to the point where I could actually understand what I would be reading about.

Now, I haven’t watched the series for a long while, but I thought that this book did it justice in terms of characters and relationships. The writing was quite good too, wich I wasn’t really expecting. And it picked up right where the show left it time wise. My only problem was that this was a relatively short read but it was treated like a full size novel, with unnecessary attention to the side characters, when all I wanted was to know what the main core was doing. I was hoping for more Alec and Max interaction (strictly platonic, come on, they’re like siblings busting each other’s balls), more Max kicking White’s ass, some Logan developments, maybe a clue or two about Sandeman. I mean it still could happen in the next book, but could they really squeeze all the answers in that one little book? I guess I’ll find out soon enough.

Over and out
