Cruisers Free read Õ 104 E true depths of human misery The lives of these two men will intersect only tangentially until fate catches up with the. I picked this book up on a whim Once I started to read it I couldn t wait to finish it Not because I had to know what happened but because I wanted to get it over with as uickly as possibleThe most important thing about any novel in my opinion is having characters you can sink your teeth into Characters who jump to life right off the pageThis book completely lacks that Never have I cared LESS for main characters in a book as I did with Russel Boyd and Frank KohlerRussel is a State Trooper Brooding with very little to sayFrank Kohler is a computer repairman or less who comes from a horrible childhood and is looking for loveBoth characters are extremely depressing to read The constant back and forth about how they re feeling at any given moment and beleive me not a sentence goes by where Nova doesn t wax poetic about how each character feels about the trees outside the color of the snow the sound of a coffee maker etc etc is confusing and totally takes you out of the storyAnd there s really not much of a story Kohler s the bad guy Boyd s the good guy their paths meet several times an event happens end of storyThis book is almost written as if it s two different stories One about Boyd and his relationship and how his job affects that and the other about Kohler s demons and his uest for love or just companionship as the case may be The stories intertwine and come to a definite if not anticlimactic conclusion but each separate story just isn t that interestingAnother problem I had with the book was the dialogue or shoud I say lack thereof Novak goes to great lengths to describe what each character is feeling but there s very little interplay between the characters When the do interact and have dialogue there s a LOT of I don t know or I guess and Yes This review may seem a little harsh and I apologize for that It s not my intention to slam the author or anything I m just trying to convey how much I disliked this book

A look at the cover might suggest that this novel is merely a cop story but while there are cops in it it is much much than that CRUISERS is the story of two men juxtaposed by time and place into a sort of destiny despite the seeming randomness of their coming together Russell Boyd is a New England cop Frank Kohler is the survivor of a childhood horror who years later is trying to make sense of what happened and how it has transformed him The two men have nothing to do with one another yet they encounter each other than once as do the women in their lives With a powerful and dramatic sense of inevitability the threads of their individual lives are drawn together as though by fate until new horrors erupt The story of the two men is compelling in its narrative alone but author Craig Nova is a poetic writer and he is one of the best writers I ve ever read for giving a sense of what internal monologue and thought might sound like if we could hear characters thinking CRUISERS is thought provoking and stylish without being baroue It is a fine novel a subtle and nuanced thriller that uietly transcends the stigma of that genre by being an absorbing artistic and literary work

Cruisers by Craig Nova dwells principally within the worlds of Russell Boyd a state trooper and Frank Kohler a computer repair specialist Their stories are told in alternating sections with an exception or two Russell is on night patrols and living with a special needs teacher named Zofia She s lovely accommodating and worried about the dangers of Russell s work Her needs and demands are uiescent until midway through she discovers she s pregnant and thinks it better to have an abortion than have a baby with a man in a line of work as dangerous as Russell s Russell is a stoic deeply taken with Zofia but a stoic as many men are he has a job to doFrank Kohler is of an internal exile His tarty mother was murdered when he was a boy and he saw her body parts crammed into a box on the side of the river He lives alone but has an explosive uality searching for conflict At the same time he s lonely and so he proceeds to obtain a Russian bride named Katryna through an agency Katryna meets his needs but not her own She too is pregnant and wants an abortion perhaps because the father is still in Russia his name is Dmitri and when she beckons to him he manages to visit and disrupt Frank s marriage and bring the killer in Frank to the foreThis is a well written carefully paced story that provides a good natural background New England in winter dingy dark mucky to the events that unfold when Frank and Russell ultimately have their foreshadowed encounter which in itself is an elaborate and graphic scene on the side of a mountain somewhere near the VermontNew Hampshire borderThe writers who come to mind when one reads Nova are DeLillo and Auster though Nova isn t as arch in constructing a rationale for his noirish tale he finds it along the highways lined with Mr Tire stores and Burger Kings and enlivens it just a bit with a foray into fox huntingGenerally Nova writes close to the skin of his tale without being minimalist or cute His characters notice things scents colors patterns of clouds in the sky they re fairly direct with one another when they tell the truth and when they lieAt the end after the crescendo there s an odd chapter that dips into an unsolved subplot and resolves it I suppose it s there because Nova wants to illustrate the fact that bad things will continue to go on despite the main story s brutal climax and Russell is still wedded to his work looking for meaning in the thought processes of a state trooper engaged with yet another villain it s how he interprets or decodes reality what he s about I suppose How he got this way other than time on the job isn t made clear but he s convincingly committed to what he does and there is a way in which keeps the moral order of the universe under control Otherwise guys like Frank and women like Katryna would just disruptively happen and screw up a lot of lives in the process
