Free read à PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free õ Dmitry Samarov Hack Author Dmitry Samarov Free read ð 102 Dmitry Samarov õ 2 Characters Cabdrivers and their yellow taxis are as much a part of the cityscape as the high rise buildings and the subway We hail them without thought after a wearying day at the office or an exuberant night on the town And undoubtedly taxi drivers have stories to tell of farcical local politics of colorful passengers of changing neighborhoods and clandestine shortcuts No one knows a city’s streets and thus its heart better than its cabdrivers And from behind the wheel of his taxi Dmitry Samarov has seen of Chicago than most Chicagoans will hope to experience in. Not a great read but certainly enjoyable Samarov s writing oscillates between being absurdly overwrought and drily brilliant causing me to switch between rolling my eyes and shaking my head in amazement at the genius at some of his one liners approximately once every other page He has this kind of kind of detached above it all so totally over everything kind of attitude toward his work and what seems like towards life in general it s a good thing the book is only 120 pages long because that tone was already starting to grind on me somewhere after hitting the halfway point and I definitely couldn t have put up with another 120 or so pagesAll that said the book is incredibly entertaining and really does have some shining moments I m glad I picked it up
