Mark and Brian,

I agree with both of you. I think that Elroy often gets caught up in language and style and lets them run roughshod over the story. I think My Dark Places works so well because it's so personal.

Puzo once said that he delivered the first draft of the Godfather to his agent and left the country for a long vacation with his family. He said he thought he would get another crack at rewriting it. The movie was way better.
