Marathon Man – William Goldman

I had a hard time keeping track of what was going on this book, I think the reason is the recent hot weather combined with the switch between the two main protagonists every chapter. Which is a pity, because I think the Marathon Man would’ve been a great thriller if I was fully paying attention. William Goldman, being the brilliant screenwriter he is, has a natural ear for dialogue and the main villain, a Nazi dentist, is genuinely chilling. I want to see the film.
