Even better than the first book It s as though Gary K Wolf saw the movie smiled and then turned around and took the piss as much as he liked in this book Many elements of the movie Who Framed Roger Rabbit enter into the beginning only to be summarily assimilated into the richer world and voice of the original world Roger s speech impediment with the letter p is not only picked on than once it s in the title and even an important plot element at one pointThis appealed to my love of satire and helped ease the annoyance I always feel towards adaptation blindness But the book is also amazing taken completely on its ownRoger Rabbit comes to Eddie with another case involving Jessica and their relationship The Telltale is printing ossip that Jessica Rabbit is romantically involved with Clark Gable Then Eddie is hired by David Selznick to catch the thief between three suspects Kirk Enigman Baby Herman and Roger Rabbit all up for the part of Rhett ButlerThe detective noir aspects are played to eleven and the dialogue is witty and often hilarious Clark Gable and Roger Rabbit have an axiom fight It s brilliant Also best romantic interest EVER Apparently Jessica has a sister view spoilerWho is six inches tall and awesome hide spoiler I m assuming that this book was written as a seuel to the movie and not the original book because Roger Rabbit has a completely different personality and is apparently not dead after all It seems as if the author is trying entirely too hard to be funny in this book Every single observation no matter how minute is stretched out into some ridiculous simile metaphor or pun As Sweet Brown would say in this case Ain t no bunny qasas-ul-quran got time for thatFINAL IMPRESSIONThe author definitely tried way too hard It s a Good Mystery But Takes Too Long to Get ThereI really enjoyed Wolf s first Roger Rabbit novel and I enjoyed the film Who Framed Roger Rabbit uite a bit so I expected to like this book aood deal I did or less The problem is that it overindulges in some of the pulp fiction tropes to the point where the novel became a bit of a slog to read I dug the characters and the mystery but it was just exhausting to et through this book at times I could only recommend. Roger Rabbit is sure that Clark Gable has not only stolen the role of Rhett Butler in the soon to be shot Gone With the Wind bu.

Novel Wolf throws in a twist that the reader might foresee but odds are low that the reader will know it until it hits themSPOILER ALERTThe only reason I ave the book a 4 Star rating was the retcon bit especially since it s not explained until Chapter 12 and it s only a brief sentence It leaves the reader wondering how Roger came back since he was basically a Dead-End Road Mysteries ghost who disappeared aka Toon Death in the first book I might be inclined too like 25 on this I was never tempted to abandon the book It wasn t a slog and I was engaged enough at least to want to know what happened in the endBut it also wasn t the eual of the first one I think the critical difference is that where before Eddie Valiant was a low rent Philip Marlowe here his is like Steve Martin s Rigby Reardon from the film Dead Men Don t Wear Plaid That is to say the style of the prose was akin to a serious detective story but with the absurd and fantastical elements lent by the toons With our protagonist being ov Better story than the first one In the vein of Mike Hammer or Sam Spade the similes were way over the top and uite bountiful The whole storyline was centered around the production of Gone With The Wind In fact Eddie is hired by David O Selznick himself This leads to my biggest objection That film was released in 1939 This timeline puts it after the WWII Eddie even mentions his war record a few times Other than that the returning characters are likable and we learn a few things about the Valiant family too Not as Hear the Wolves good as the first but then sopho books never are Weird in that some of the same characters are back again even though they were killed off in the first book Oh well cartoons will be cartoons So much wasoing on that it was kind of exhausting Very cleverly plotted funny and satiric and I think I understood what was Valors Measure going on than I did with Who Censored Roger Rabbit Not as fresh as that one though somehow But it is nice that view spoilerRoger is aood BFI Film Classics guy like he was in the movie I was upset when he turned out not to be at the end of Censored I think Gary Wolf hadotten attached to Roger too and was Tni Tata Dunia Baru Sistem Pertahanan glad that writing this seuel to the movieave him another chance to work with him hide spoiler.
