Yes I would my group of friends is usually fans of Film Noir or old Pulp Crime novels. And this book covers both grounds. If anyone is a fan of Noir Films knows the film Detour and this book covers that story and so much more.
Alex Roth he plays the everyman story down on his luck and finds women dangerous.
His voice presentation is spot on taking you back to the times when the story takes place well worth the listen even if you already read the book.
I liked how the book gave us the different view points of the character. Like how it gives us the story of what his girlfriend is doing while he is tracking a crossed the US to surprise her
The book fills in way more of the story that the film did not capture anyone a fan of the film needs to read the book
Yes it's a prime example of one of our greatest Pulp writers of out time. Along with an outstanding reading of the book.
The build up of coming doom
A nice pace and very well difference in voices of the characters. Very engrossing really captures the feel.
His returning home.
Jim Thompson is a must read for any anyone who loves the pulps of yesteryear. This story has a simple story line that reflects struggles we are experiencing with the Fracking going on now.
Along with oil rights and some steamy hot scenes in the back of cars that used to have seats to have fun in, and the darkness inside the character that takes you down paths you may fear to go.
Not as good as Killer Inside Me but well worth a read.
