Instead we are on "Seven policeman couldn't move that silently if all their graft depended on it. Instead we are on a wild page turning ride filled with humor and violence.
A shadow world of intrigue, nazi arrogance and government conspiracy is up against one puny Jewish historian of humility, self doubt and, crucially, that hallmark of a marathon man, endurance.

From BBc Radio 4: William Goldman's dark cult thriller about a student whose world is turned upside down by a Nazi dentist and a network of spies.

This is not within my likings. Marathon man is full of suspence. A thriller. Tom Levy, a smart aleck studying under a schorlarship gets involved with his brother Doc who is working secretly for Szell a diamond smuggler.
Without their knowledge, Doc aka Scylla has a bullseye on his back. He is forced to kill Chen and Robertson, his fellow couriers in self defence.
Unfortunately, his luck runs out and he is killed by Szella who has crossed into America in such of his precious diamondds.
Marathon m This is not within my likings. Marathon man, or Levy is caught amidst the thick of things and tortured for what supposedly his brother told him before passing away.
Janeway plays the goodcop but is unable to get Tom to talk. I cannot relate to this book. It is a quick read and fans of thriller books will enjoy the twist and turns surrounding the characters.
However, for me, it's goodbye. Mar 23, Sue Bridehead A Pseudonym rated it liked it Shelves: book-club , novels. Liked, didn't love. It's a quick, easy read and very much of its time period.
Though mine was a recent hardcover re-release with an intro by the author a good intro detailing how he got into writing for Hollywood , this book really feels to me like a beat-up, pulpy paperback you'd carry on the subway.
That's not a bad thing. A fun thriller that reads like a movie, which is how I came to know it originally. My mom was a big fan of this film when I was a kid.
Fortunately, seeing it didn't turn me Liked, didn't love. Fortunately, seeing it didn't turn me off the dentist forever.
Sep 19, Mark rated it liked it Shelves: historical-fiction. I don't have a lot of memories of this book, except that the plot and the sense of suspense gripped me throughout, and that it was a creative way of looking at carryover from the Nazi past.
And because I know Goldman is known for his ability to come up with one captivating scene, I don't think it's unfair to mention that the torture scene involving dental instruments is one of the most disturbing in all of fiction.
Feb 10, Mike rated it it was amazing. I found this in an op shop while on holiday, was hooked by the brilliant writing in the first chapter and had to buy it.
It's violent and has quite a gloomy ending, but as a thriller it's top notch. In the end however it's Goldman's writing that makes us believe that such a fantastic tale could possibly have any reality.
The writing is vital and funny and terrifying often all within one page. Quite a contrast to The Princess Bride! View all 5 comments. Jul 24, Nicholas rated it it was amazing Recommended to Nicholas by: Amanda.
Freaking awesome. That's all there is to it. Goldman creates a classic tale of suspense and intrigue filled with Dentist Nazis and crooked spies that keeps you hooked until the end.
But more than the intriguing plot, it's the characterization of Babe that makes this novel worth 5 stars.
Babe is a completely believable genius narcissist the best kind right? There are so many wonderfully memorable lines, funny and awesomely vengeful i just had to add them.
The line about erasers I think I'll keep for the rest of my days, and Babe's lecture to Szell near the end of the novel is just so fitting.
It's the ultimate, "HA! Take that bastard! Looking forward to the movie. Jun 22, Feliks rated it really liked it Shelves: genre-thrillers.

Mar 25, Brian rated it it was amazing. What a thriller. Kept moving. The first time I read Marathon Man was over the course of one day, but I didn't manage to finish it before I had to go out for the evening.
As such, when I got back in, having been looking forward to the finale all evening, I was disappointed to find the ending an anti-climax but I wasn't sure if this was because of the manner in which I had read it rather than not liking the ending.
So here I am a few years later reading it again and I'm still not that much of a fan of the ending. I love the w The first time I read Marathon Man was over the course of one day, but I didn't manage to finish it before I had to go out for the evening.
I love the writing style. Goldman is brilliant with his sentences. It's a colloquial style, perfectly mimicking the way a person thinks, often with short statements and other times interrupting a sentence with a side thought or to reinforce the point with wit.
And then during the shootout scene it's all one long run-on sentence because it's all happening at once for Babe. It's just incredibly smart and slick and beautiful.
I could very much do without the racism though. The bad guys are Nazis, so sometimes we get their racist perspective, which I don't want to be in, and even when we're in someone else's perspective there are words used that make me uncomfortable.
Meanwhile Babe is kinda misogynistic. Also I must admit that despite having read the book twice I don't entirely understand the plot. I guess the point is that the bad guys are just super paranoid, but they seem to be putting certain things into action for no reason.
Oh well. So, it's witty and exciting and at times even moving. However the issue I had both times is that I love Scylla, he's my favourite character, and I don't much care for Babe, so that makes the second half of the book less enjoyable.
And then, this ending. It just doesn't really do anything for me. I couldn't tell you what I want from the story.
Maybe I just don't want this story. Maybe it loses me at the halfway point, not to say that it isn't very exciting and well-crafted beyond this, it's just that we're kind of all done with character-development and plot and are just running down to the showdown.
Maybe the thriller genre just isn't my thing. Babe is hurled into a story that isn't his, if that makes sense, so there is no ultimately satisfactory way for it to go.
It's also fairly obvious wish-fulfilment stuff, with a Nazi torturer getting his comeuppance at the hands of Jewish people, which might have been the overall point to the novel but from the point of view of the reader seems to come out of nowhere.
So ultimately, I love the prose and while I think the individual scenes are brilliantly conceived, the overall plot doesn't interest me that much.
Mar 25, Revathy Ram Sundar rated it it was amazing. Marathon man is a fast paced thriller written around s. The language is commendable and I bet you'd come across a lot of new words while reading the book.
The plot :- Babe, the protagonist, is a jew, a history student and an aspiring marathon-runner. He is very fond of his brother, who is the only family member left alive.
One day,he drools over an unusually pretty woman after which his conventionally peaceful life becomes so adventurous. He gets mugged, watches his brother die in his arms, vow Marathon man is a fast paced thriller written around s.

Christian Szell a character inspired by Dr. Josef Mengele was trying to smuggle diamonds out of America and his brother was in a secret operation to prevent that.
Babe, who is fearful and low-confident, now becomes stronger to avenge the death of his brother and executes Szell. Notable incidents :- The one where Babe tries to escape from his attackers.
He runs uphill barefooted and to keep himself running, he draws inspiration from Bikila, imagines Bikila cheering up for him and running along with him.
I feel this is how having a role-model shall help in tragic situations! The one where Szell drills Babe's decayed tooth without anesthesia.
For a moment, all the dreadful scenes in Nazi extermination camps flash before your eyes. When his brother dies in a car accident, Szell must come to New York himself to retrieve the diamonds, as there is no one else he can trust with them.
Meanwhile, at Columbia University , Thomas Babington "Tom" Levy,  known by his brother as "Babe" the first and middle names are a reference to Thomas Babington Macaulay ,  and the nickname is a reference to Babe Ruth is a postgraduate student in history and an aspiring marathon runner.
He is haunted by the suicide of his brilliant academic father, H. Levy, who was one of the victims of McCarthyism , when Babe was ten.
Babe's PhD dissertation aims to clear his father's name of alleged Communist affiliations. Unbeknownst to Babe, his elder brother by ten years and best friend , Henry David "Hank" Levy after Henry David Thoreau , known by Babe as "Doc", works in The Division under the name "Scylla" and has been helping to move Szell's diamonds as part of his duties.
When Szell arrives in New York he meets with Doc. Suspecting Doc of planning to rob him when he retrieves the diamonds, Szell stabs him and leaves him for dead.
Mortally wounded, Doc makes his way to Babe's apartment and dies in his brother's arms. When Szell finds out about this he believes Doc may have told Babe about the plan to rob him.
Szell's two henchmen abduct Babe. Szell tortures Babe by drilling into his teeth without anesthetic and repeatedly asking the question, "Is it safe?
Babe does not know what the question means nor the interrogator's identity until Szell explains after torturing him. When Szell finally concludes Babe knows nothing, he orders his people to dispose of the young man.
Though in great pain, Babe escapes and thanks to his training as a marathoner outruns his pursuers. Seeking revenge for the killing of Doc, Babe arranges a rendezvous at which Szell's people, who hope to eliminate him, are killed instead.
He then intercepts Szell at his bank, a confrontation that ultimately leads to Szell's death. Goldman says he was inspired by the idea of bringing a major Nazi to the biggest Jewish city in the world.
He wrote the book after the death of his beloved editor Hiram Haydn , who had edited all of his books from to , and feels he never would have written something as commercial as Marathon Man had Haydn been alive.

If a movie like this is going to work, it has to work moment by moment and scene by scene -- and "Marathon Man" does.
