3.0 étoiles sur 5 Forbidden love. 21 janvier 2013
Par Michael G. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
The Butterfly by James M. Cain was first published in 1946. It takes place among the hills and hollers of West Virginia coal country. Cain uses his favorite form of narration, the first person confessional, in relating this unusual tale of deceit, incest and murder.

Jess Tyler is a church going mountain man. One day out of the blue, his estranged daughter, Kady, shows up at his cabin and starts throwing herself at him in a most undaughterly way. At least that's the way Jess tells it. Cain leaves a few hints that Jess may not be 100% accurate as a narrator. For example, he claims to be a God fearing teetotaler. Yet he quickly shows himself to be a seasoned expert when it comes to constructing and operating a commercial still.

Much of the book has a rushed surreal feel to it. Making it come off as more of a fable or adult fairy tale than a fictional approximation of real life.

Cain went out on a limb with his career when he wrote this very controversial book. Unfortunately, the story it has to tell is a less than convincing one. Three stars.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 "Take heed lest ye fall" jumps from the pages of the Bible and comes to life in The Butterfly 24 novembre 2013
Par Richard L. Jackson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Filled with the steamy and gritty passion and violence Cain is so famous for. This cautionary fable warns of reaching for forbidden fruit (in this case incest) which always promises pleasure but consumes and destroys in the end. Even a "Palm-singing" Church going man like Jess Taylor is not beyond the grasp of sin and its corrosive consequences. Interesting plot. Cain always packs a wallop.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A man who falls in love with his own daughter. 23 octobre 1997
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This story is vey interesting and unbelievable. It's about a man name Jess who was separated from his own daughter when she was just a baby. After many years have past, they both met each other by his house having a conversation. Jess fell in love with her without knowing that she's his own daughter, and goes for her. I rate this boo an "8" because of it's uncommon story that can never be accepted in our society.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Cain's Second Best Book 12 août 1998
Par markgunnery@yahoo.com - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
You must read this book for the last sentence. It is the best ever written. Don't skip ahead, just take the time, read it and get to that beautiful, perfect sentence. You won't be diasapointed.
4.0 étoiles sur 5 A great fast paced and disturbing read 22 mars 2015

A great fast paced and disturbing read.The plot became a little too convoluted for my taste though. The books could defintley have used a less byzantine aspect or another 50 pages to fully flesh out and integrate all the aspects of the characters. Other than that it was highly enjoyable short Novella. I would recommend getting thus book in the " 3 by Cain" version.
