was actually upset when each of the three sections ended, and I could no longer follow that particular character.Since then I have read every novel he has published Of course, the Barrington novels make up most of his oeuvre I just finished reading Contraband, which came out a scant 20 hours ago.In stark contrast to the novel Chiefs , Contraband is completely formulaic I like the contrast between where he started his career, and his latest release I just don t like the book.The objectification of women has reached a new high, with the F word being liberally used by the major female characters I don t recall Woods using that particular word so often, before this book Apparently all women are gorgeous, and all women are eager to hop in the sack, including those in high positions of society and government I am not a prude, but I m pretty sure that many readers would agree that the objectification of women in this novel as well as many others in this series is horrific.In addition to the constant use of sex scenes, which are presumably somewhat less explicit than a romance novel, Woods regales us with scenes of rich people doing rich people things I get that Stone is rich but it seems like every main character in the series has come across money Otherwise they are not allowed in the story I am only slightly a reverse snob but I am getting bored with the trappings of the very rich in these books.In general, Woods books are good reads It is easy to get lost in one of his novels And his early books are just really, really, excellent But this particular novel left me disappointed and wanting to see the Stuart Woods of old.It is easy to criticize I am not a published writer, whereas Mr Woods is extremely successful I have to give him his props for that I believe he is extremely talented I hope that he will write the great novel of this generation, of which he is absolutely capable, and leave behind the quick cash cow novels flag 1 likeLike see review View 2
