when I landed at LAX. The smut of car exhaust greeted me as I exited the terminal. Outside the airport I hailed a cab and gave the address to the driver. I had done my residency here in the eighties, at Saint John’s Health Center in Santa Monica. It’s where I met Ellen, at a party thrown by a fellow resident. She was the green-eyed girl on the balcony, smoking a joint. I was the second-year resident who’d been up for thirty-six hours straight. I still wore my scrubs.

The Good Father has already been called the We Need to Talk About Kevin for men, and it will doubtless divide opinion in mixed-gender book-groups everywhere. In terms of aesthetics, the comparison doesn't travel far: Lionel Shriver's novel has a fire, a fury and a peculiarity that Noah Hawley's slick storytelling cannot match. A Hollywood screenwriter, Hawley doesn't so much spin a yarn as download them.

I read Before the Fall by the same author first, and it was great. This book was a disappointment - the content was very interesting. We learn very early on that the "good father" of the title is told that his 20 year old son has been charged with assassinating a popular Senator who is a Presidential hopeful. We get the thoughts of both father and son - the Dad feeling he has neglected his son as he divorced the boy's mum when his son was 7 and he moved to the East Coast of the U.S. from California.The father cannot believe his son is capable of such an act and from all we learn of the son we are unsure too. Unfortunately, the father researches all he can find out about men who have committed acts of assassination and we get all of this in depth research too. I now know more than I wanted to about Hinckley, Chapman, Oswald etc. It filled a lot of the pages of the book. The father/son story is very well written and we feel for and understand them both as to how they came to this stage of their lives.
I bought this book after being so impressed by his other book "After the Fall." As it turned out, I was just finishing The Good Father when the Las Vegas mass shooting occurred, so the potential to shed some light on the motivation of the killer encouraged me to stick with it. However, unlike the other book, I found this one a slog and ended up disappointed not to have gained any real understanding of the evolution of the thinking of the son. The chronology of his gradual descent is described, but I felt we never really got into his head. The insertion of historical descriptions of other mass murders seemed gratuitous and added nothing to the plot development or real insight into their mindsets. On the other hand, a much larger portion of the book is devoted to the father's quest for understanding, which alternates with passages describing the son. Alas, although we sympathize with his plight, he comes off as so self-centered that he's hard to like. The descriptions of his ruminations go on so long and so tediously, that I finally found myself just skimming. All in all, a great idea but a big disappointment
This book, coincidentally, was read by four other members of my family and one of us happened to mention reading it over dinner one evening. It is amazing the length and depth of discussion that went on from that point. Was he indeed a good father? Did he do the right things for himself, or for his new family? Were his efforts worthwhile and justifiable? So, a simple accident of a dinnertime discussion led to a better understanding of life and the processes for effective parenthood.
This book left me so emotional. My children lived through divorce and I would tell myself that 'kids will be fine. They are resistant.' One day I said that to my daughter, about my granddaughter and she became angry saying, "you always said that but it's not true . We weren't resistant we were broken". It's the first time I realized I had told myself that lie to justify my actions. Reading this book brought back that memory. So well written.
I read Hawley's first book bc I had been impressed with his pacing and wording on his TV series "Fargo." The Malvo character corrects someone at one point telling him: "you are focusing on the wrong part of that sentence." There is a clinical aspect to his writing and his insight, in both books, that frustrated would-be writers, such as I am, will love. Though the plot here especially could have focused on the main act in the story, Hawley's apparent deliberate choice to focus on the unintended consequence of an act and in particular the damage done to those barely even thought of are his true brilliance. in each of his books, Hawley writes with a clarity, sincerity and absolute believability in his narrator that you feel not only their perspective, but I found myself often agreeing as if the narrator's actions, words and decisions could easily have even my own.

The line "A man has to know his limitations" has been used twice by Eastwood's characters in different films. It's my favorite line. I do not believe Hawley has yet reached the limitations of the art and voice he is capable of giving life. I am better for having read both books and I don't know of a higher compliment to give a writer.
The author swings from improbable scenarios to lists of dry facts about previous killers of political figures. He gets cutsie by not giving exact dates "20__" and "199_", as though it mattered. There is little to no introspection into either the killer son's motives or why the father was, or was not, a good father. An absentee father, for sure, but so what?
I thoroughly enjoyed The Good Father. It's deeply reflective and original. A father is out to prove that his estranged 20 year old son did not kill a leading presidential candidate. From those first few paragraphs a story unwinds going backwards and forwards. The father is a leading doctor and wants to use his medically trained investigative skills to reflect and question all the evidence. Hawley overlays the existing story with backgrounds from some of the most famous assassinations and mass murders in American history from RFK to the University of Texas. In doing so he brings interesting observations of both those crimes and the people who committed them. It add much to this story.

I found myself thoroughly pulled in by the story. Hawley gives strong sense of the struggle for the father; his guilt, skepticism, obsession and alienation. I thought this was both a thriller and a well argued position on the fallout that hurts so many when a murderous crime occurs. .
I was angry with the first half of the book since it was about an "abandoned" boy and a father who continually rationalized and justified his choices. Children don't get to choose their lives yet are expected to understand adults who have already made their choices under the guise of "happiness" or "career." But the author skillfully unfolds the pages of the story and in the end I was sad. A very emotional ride. Recommends for those who like to question why.
