Smashwords book reviews by J Frieberger

  • Razzle Dazzle on June 05, 2012

    Razzle Dazzle is a brilliantly fun romp with powerful undertones of culture, ethics, and religion -- as such the book will appeal to multiple audiences. I found the action both accessible and meticulously described, reminding me of some of the best descriptions of chess matches -- again, both accessible, enjoyable, and page-turning -- by Nabokov, for example, in The Defense. When I finished the book I found myself thinking of the broader implications of the protagonist's choices and the framework of sports-capitalism that engaged her, and myself as a reader, throughout. The novel couldn't come at a better time given the tangible strain on the NFL and football itself at all levels. RB Kaiser's prose and elucidation give insight to the phenomena of several colliding interests: big money, sport, culture, and the age-old (even Roman) understanding of "fun for the masses." Emphatically recommended.
