All Involved: A Novel | Ryan Gattis
27 posts | 24 read | 48 to read
A propulsive and ambitious novel as electrifying as The Wire, from a writer hailed as the West Coast's Richard Pricea mesmerizing epic of crime and opportunity, race, revenge, and loyalty, set in the chaotic streets of South Central L.A. in the wake of one of the most notorious and incendiary trials of the 1990sAt 3:15 p.m. on April 29, 1992, a jury acquitted three white Los Angeles Police Department officers charged with using excessive force to subdue a black man named Rodney King, and failed to reach a verdict on the same charges involving a fourth officer. Less than two hours later, the city exploded in violence that lasted six days. In nearly 121 hours, fifty-three lives were lost. But there were even more deaths unaccounted for: violence that occurred outside of active rioting sites by those who used the chaos to viciously settle old scores.A gritty and cinematic work of fiction, All Involved vividly re-creates this turbulent and terrifying time, set in a sliver of Los Angeles largely ignored by the media during the riots. Ryan Gattis tells seventeen interconnected first-person narratives that paint a portrait of modern America itselflaying bare our history, our prejudices, and our complexities. With characters that capture the voices of gang members, firefighters, graffiti kids, and nurses caught up in these extraordinary circumstances, All Involved is a literary tour de force that catapults this edgy writer into the ranks of such legendary talents as Dennis Lehane and George V. Higgins.

This book was too long, repetitive and just not my kind of thing. With styles that are difficult to follow, characters that I‘ve already forgotten and plot points that happen again and again, I didn‘t like this book. No matter what other reviewers say, it‘s just 1 star for “All Involved” from me.

An uncomfortable, yet compelling read about the LA riots in 1992.
Although well written, it just wasn‘t for me, too real life sad and depressing 😔
Managed another 1 1/2 hours for #25infive so finishing on 21.31 😁

Andrew65 A brilliant total, well done and thanks for taking part in the challenge. 😊 2y
Reviewsbylola I wasn‘t in love with this one either but I appreciated the different perspective. 2y

A fantastic look at the '92 LA riots, after a jury acquitted 3 police officers, of 'excessive force used to subdue civilian Rodney King'. I knew very little about the LA riots and found this a fascinating intense read of the violence that occurred outside of the actual riots. Specifically the murders between the Chicano gangs. The book takes us through 17 peoples (fictionalised) accounts of the 6 days of violence and chaos. So well done. ❤️

Here is my #tbrbingo after a couple weeks. My plan right now is to post an update at the end of each month, at the minimum. I'm not flying through it, that's for sure. 😂 I think at least two books a month is a reasonable goal. 🐌 🐌 🐌

This is one of those books that is epic in scope. It's hard to fathom how Gattis was even able to write about the LA riots and the fictional gang members in such a realistic way. This was gritty and violent and it showed a sad world that undoubtedly exists and was also able to show the reader why it exists. I don't feel like I loved this as much as @emilyhaldi or @Cinfhen --it's not an easy read--but I definitely appreciate that it's well done.

emilyhaldi I'm glad you thought this was a worthy read, even if it wasn't your fav! 🔪🔪 2y
bedandabook Great review. This one's definitely on my TBR pile now. Looking forward to it. 2y
Cinfhen Echoing @emilyhaldi 🖤Yes, this book is gritty and violent but it's written in such an honest vulnerable way that you come to care for these gang members! I was rooting and cheering for them as scores were settled & my heart ached when life strangled them😞 2y

It's my birthday today, so I had to treat myself to a special birthday drink from Sbux and a #bathandbook before work. This is one of Lush's new jelly bath bombs and I've been saving it. I'm very intrigued by the idea. 🤔 And I wanted to make sure I picked a real winner of a book. Am I the only one that wants to make sure I'm not reading a dud on my birthday? 😂 The thought horrified me yesterday when I was picking a new book. #booknerdproblems

#LyricalApril Day 14 #UndertheBridge Written as a love song to LosAngeles, the "City of Angles"my book choice shows a dark side of LA. On April 29, 1992 four white police officers were acquitted on all counts of deadly assault and use of excessive force vs Rodney King. The outrage from the trial sparked The LA Riots, when the city was ablaze with looting, fires and criminal activities. This book covers those 6 days of unrest. AMAZING READ!!!

Oryx Really interesting book. I had heard about the riots but really knew nothing about it, so I learnt a lot from this. 3y

LauraBeth What a horrible time that was 😔 Riots also broke out in Atlanta and I was away at college and we turned on the tv to see what was happening and there was my cop dad in riot gear in all that commotion. I think that Americans must acknowledge that there is and has always been a serious problem with racial injustice. If we don't ever face this issue and acknowledge it's truth instead of pretending everything is fine on the surface - we're broken 3y
Cinfhen Yet another terrible mark in our "justice" system. Poor Rodney King , as well as your dad who needed to do his job. I agree, this NEEDS to be fixed!!! (edited) 3y

#Augustphotochallenge #day26 I came across this book by chance and it has easily earned a top spot on my best read list! Gattis tells 17 interconnected stories over a 6 day period following the acquittal of 4 white police officers in the beating of Rodney King. As LA is on fire and law and order is non existent many LA based gangs see this time as an invitation to settle scores, old & new. Gripping, gritty, shocking and compelling. MUST READ!
