    This book is a ramp up on The Stranger It s similar in many ways except in This Is What We Do, the main character s hopeless wandering has a cause, and the cause is stopping the terrible people in the world.I didn t think it would have been possible to take Camus s classic to the next level, but Tom Hansen did it He s exchanging the existentialism of the past with the horrors inflicted by twisted people of power, and running the protagonist through this world not to the end but to a new beginnin [...]

    Tom Hansen does Camus Tom Hansen goes Noir Tom Hansen makes a huge detour from his memoir and dives right into a thinking man s dystopian nightmare It s existentialism, absurdism, and nihilism all wrapped up in an anarchistic infused mystery filled with ultra violence, drugs, global revolution, and a hot Ukrainian model what do you need to hear Go out and buy Tom Hansen s This Is What We Do Do it today

    Short, quick read My friend Marci lent it to me, and I read it and enjoyed it There are some minor inconsistencies here and there that bugged me, and some of it is kinda stereotypical characters, scenes , but a mostly satisfying book.

    Dark as the black of night Along the lines of the story of novel Something Wild the source of Jonathan Demme s movie of the same name from 1986 with Ray Liotta and Melanie Griffith If you read Hansen s memoir American Junkie you know of what he speaks.
