Caught

by Lisa Moore

House Of Anansi Press Inc | May 24, 2013 | Hardcover

Caught is rated 4 out of 5 by 3.
Shortlisted for the Rogers Writers' Trust Fiction Prize and the Scotiabank Giller Prize. Selected as an Amazon.ca Best Book and for The Globe 100 Books in 2013. "In the creation of David Slaney, Lisa Moore brings us an unforgettable character, embodying the exuberance and energy of misspent youth. Caught is a propulsive and harrowing read." - Patrick deWitt, author of The Sisters Brothers Internationally acclaimed author Lisa Moore offers us a remarkable new novel about a man who escapes from prison to embark upon one of the most ambitious pot-smuggling adventures ever attempted. Here are bravado and betrayal, bad weather and seas, love, undercover agents, the collusion of governments, unbridled ambition, innocence and the loss thereof, and many, many bales of marijuana. Here, too, is the seeming invincibility of youth and all the folly that it allows. Caught is an exuberant, relentlessly suspenseful, and utterly unique novel, and promises to be the astonishing Lisa Moore's most accomplished work to date.

Reviews

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Ho Hum I really did not find this book all the exciting. When Slaney escaped from jail and the hurricane that was about the extent of the excitement.. Other than that I found it rather mundane. Very HuHum. Definitely not impressive for the first time reading this author's work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing book! Lisa develops characters beautifully and has a wonderful writing style that just pulls you in. Written on location in Atlantic Canada, we hear about a prison escapee who becomes involved in one of the largest pot smuggling operations ever attempted. You feel as if you are in the book watching the events unfold; bad weather and seas, love, undercover agents, the collusion of governments and many, many bales of marijuana.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful, taut, and evocative Have just finished a second reading of Caught. I've read all of Lisa's novels – Alligator, February, and Caught – twice, not because the plot and characters are so fascinating, which they are, but because the language is so beautiful, taut, and evocative. Even when you know exactly what will happen, you can be captivated by the writing alone. Although February is my personal favourite, I could easily read all three novels again, just to be swept away by Lisa's style The characters and plot in Caught are gripping, but not unusual; it is the way in which the exquisite prose reveals characters and plot that is unique and provocative. Highly recommended.
