Ashley Antoinette ↠ The Cartel book

The port of Miami brings in millions of dollars worth of cocaine every year and The Cartel controls eighty percent of it The Diamond family is a force to be reckoned with but all hell breaks loose when they lose their leader The most ruthless gangster Miami has ever seen Carter Diamond leaves behind a wife twin sons a daughter and a secret The secret is his illegitimate s I read this book because my students were so into the series but I had to force myself to finish it Reading it made me anxious and a little bit upsetThe story deals with the struggle for power between fictional modern day crime families There is non stop action between what I would call the action scenes bullets fly the sex scenes graphic and the money scenes Carter stood up smoothly and put his hands in his 400 Armani slacks Ultimately I think the reason I had such a strong reaction to this book wasn't the sex or the violence but the storytelling I don't see the artistry in the writing maybe there is something I don't understand and as a result the book is a surprisingly painful read The world is governed by the iron fast rules of family loyalty and the pursuit of opulent wealth There is little to uestion and little to invest in emotionally or intellectually Basically a non stop series of revenge killings and power grabs to me this book never stopped to consider the uestion Why?Reading this book has raised for me the uestion of how far I can willingly extend my sympathy in the realm of literature and I am going to make it a point to read books in this genre in the future although right now that resolution is looking a lot like homework than it did before I started The Cartel What constitutes uality? I am going to think about what I can be enthusiastic here And in the meantime I'm actually looking forward to going back and reading canonical fiction Perhaps this last revelation will be my cloud's silver lining?I tried not to be two faced here that is to write a review that I wouldn't mind my own students reading It would make an excellent study in the use of plot in literature I guess And I think that any book that can get my students interested in reading is probably a good thing After reading this book I am going to have to seriously reconsider my presumed open mindedness as a reader
