Get Word of the Day daily email! A reason I was drawn to this author is because of the horse on the cover. I am a sucker for horse elated books or books that have horses on the covers.
I though this was a so, so read. Ned never really connected with me on a level that made me want to get drawn into the story fully. Oct 07, Rich rated it liked it Shelves: mysteries.
Felix suffers from Tom Clancy Syndrome. He gives far too much information on betting and how odds are set to the reader--to the point of including tables at the first of the book.
Whereas his dad knew how to feather in the necessary information into the story in a way that educated the reader, but kept the story moving along briskly.
BTW when you see a combination like this with Dick Francis on top and Felix Francis below--you can be assured that Felix did the writing while Dick probably worked on the outline.
The publisher does this to sell more books. They know we wouldn't pick up a title by Felix Francis.
The plot information has been given by the other writers, so I'm not going to give it. In some ways the story kept me more interested that the previous two outings of the two together.
But it still suffers from Felix's inability--or the editor's lack of balls--to curtail huge information dumps. Double trailer dump truck loads. The other problem I had with the story was the peckishness of the main character.
He seemed to be driven by immaturity and fits of pique. And just before the ending of the book there is a huge confession that changes the entire tone of the book, and not in a good way.
I really worry that Felix will be able to learn the craft before his dad dies. Dick is almost 90 now. I really enjoyed reading this joint effort between Dick Francis and his son Felix.
I had read most of Dick Francis's novels many years ago - long enough that I can't fairly compare the writing style but this book kept me interested from early on.
I have read one other book by Felix Francis and in both books I was intrigued enough by the main characters to want to know more about them.
This particularl novel takes the reader into the life of a book-maker up against those out to put him out of I really enjoyed reading this joint effort between Dick Francis and his son Felix.
This particularl novel takes the reader into the life of a book-maker up against those out to put him out of business. His wife is bi-polar and some fair amount of time goes into explaining what this meant to them and their relationship.
Some reviewers don't seem to like that, but I think it helps with removing the stigma from mental health issues.
I have never been to a horse race other than the Calgary Stampede once and have never placed a bet with a bookie. I doubt if I ever will either but I enjoyed reading this interesting mystery.
Sep 10, Bill rated it really liked it. Reading a Dick Francis novel is as comfortable as an old pair of shoes. He writes wonderfully and even when the plot deals with an unfamiliar topic, bookmaking in Even Money, it makes little difference to enjoying the story.
The main characters are ordinary individuals caught up in extraordinary circumstances. In Even Money it is a legal independent bookmaker at the track trying to entice bettors punters to bet with him by providing slightly better odds, and payout, than the big off-track Reading a Dick Francis novel is as comfortable as an old pair of shoes.
In Even Money it is a legal independent bookmaker at the track trying to entice bettors punters to bet with him by providing slightly better odds, and payout, than the big off-track betting corporations.
The bookmaker, Ned Talbot, is interupted by this old guy who eventually claims to be his dead father of 36 years.
He is immediately killed before Ned can prove or disprove his claim. And the action escalates from there. Add in some heartbreaking personal problems with a mentally ill wife and grandmother with dementia and Francis has written another terrific story.
Read it! You won't be disappointed. Sep 03, Jeffrey rated it liked it Recommends it for: Francis fans but they would be better off reading earlier works.
Shelves: mystery , read-in This latest collaboration between Dick Francis and Felix Francis again has all the elements of a book written by someone other than Dick Francis.
There are long stretches of exposition about bookmaking, mental illness and other sundry things where in earlier novels the exposition was more limited.
The dialogue and the spare crisp writing style are muted but the ordinary business man placed in a bad situation who has to get even against the evil bad man without resorting to the help of the police This latest collaboration between Dick Francis and Felix Francis again has all the elements of a book written by someone other than Dick Francis.
The dialogue and the spare crisp writing style are muted but the ordinary business man placed in a bad situation who has to get even against the evil bad man without resorting to the help of the police is still there and the lack of a female character of any substance is still there and the story does move along and the ability to write about even another area of horse racing is remarkable.
Its not written the same as the earlier Francis novels, its not frankly as good, but there is still something to like in this novel.
Not quite a gripping thriller Even Money is a fairly good story, with plenty of insight into the world of horse racing, and lots of accurate geographical descriptions of Englands countryside, roads and race courses.
The principal character, a bookmaker called Ned Talbot, struggles his way through a series of shocking revelations and seriously threatening challenges.
Nevertheless, I would definitely recommend it to any of my friends who like a good crime thriller, especially those who like an English setting.
Oct 31, Jjanovyak rated it really liked it. This was a real pleasure. That was a waste of brain time on my part. Felix Francis has stepped into the partnership virtually seamlessly, and this latest offering is a real pleasure.
The pacing moves as quickly as ever, and Ned Talbot is a likeable and sympathetic hero, whose marital love story is authentically touching. Add in some little This was a real pleasure.
Add in some little touches that make it up to date I loved that Ned uses Google Earth and the authoritative details about bookmaking, and the sum is a truly satisfying entertainment.
Jun 21, Carrieuoregon rated it really liked it. I'm so glad Felix got involved with the family business. I think he's really got a feel for it.
I was happy to read about the life of a bookies, a profession never explored by Dick Francis before I can think of only one bookmaker's assistant who was a significant character.
A great tale about depression, with a realistic, but positive message. I don't feel this ranks among the very best Francis novels, but it was good, and I was so happy to read it.
Sep 25, Sue rated it really liked it Shelves: mysteries. This is book 3 that has been written with son Felix Francis. By far, the best that has been done since he started helping!
I have always loved the horse racing aspect of Francis' stories. This one, centers on book maker Teddy Talbot and the art of betting.
It was a great mystery and just a fun read. Feb 10, Sandy Sexton rated it really liked it Shelves: britain. I found the plot and subplots interesting, and I liked the main character, a bookie.
I also thought that description was used artfully in that in a sparing sentence or two, the mood of a place was established or a strong hint of a character's personality was delivered indirectly.
Ned Talbot was a likable main character, but his risk taking behavior didn't always sit well with the caution he shows in his relationships.
Unlike some other reviewers, I enjoyed finding out about the mathematics I found the plot and subplots interesting, and I liked the main character, a bookie.
Unlike some other reviewers, I enjoyed finding out about the mathematics behind the bookie profession; the exploration of how professions work has always been part of Dick Francis novels.
Whether it be glassblowing, hot air ballooning or merchant banking, it's interesting to have a taste of another field of work.
Ned didn't seem to have a love of horses, which could well be the truth for many bookies, but as I love the background of horses and racing in the Francis novels I was disappointed that our hero didn't seem to feel outrage or at least mild sadness when horses were abused.
However, I enjoyed the read, asking myself if I didn't have such a positive experience because of my reading history.
Did I enjoy this novel because I've so enjoyed all Dick Francis books? No matter. Perhaps in the more recent books the echo from past novels contributes to their success, but as the echo is palpable, why not enjoy it?
Aug 17, KawasakiBabe rated it it was amazing. Dick Francis and son Felix have come up with yet another tale involving the shady and complex world of horse racing.
