GALVESTON novel by Nic Pizzolatto

Recommended Posts

Having watched the GALVESTON motion picture (2018) on Blu-Ray, my next step was to read the novel (2010) it was based on. The GALVESTON novel by Nic Pizzolatto has mostly good reviews from readers and literary critics. My hardcover with dust jacket book

in used/very good condition came from Thriftbooks, Dallas TX.

The main characters in the novel (Roy Cady and Raquel Arceneaux) are complex and flawed, the "bad guys" they encounter are very bad.

Most of the novel is set in 1988, told in first person by Roy Cady. Various flashbacks, also told in first person, provide background information on events in Cady's life that put him on the path to becoming a career criminal. The latter part of the novel is set in 2008, immediately before the approaching storm (Hurricane Ike) makes landfall at Galveston.
