Publisher's Summary

A rip-roaring, high-octane, Texas-sized thriller, featuring two friends, one vixen, a crew of washed-up radicals, loads of money, and bloody mayhem. Hap Collins and Leonard Pine are best friends, yet they couldn't be more different. Hap is an east Texas white boy with a weakness for Texas women. Leonard is a black, gay Vietnam vet. Together, they stir up more commotion than a fire storm.

But that's just the way they like it. So when as ex-flame of Hap's returns promising a huge score, Hap lets Leonard in on the scam, and that's when things get interesting. Chock full of action and laughs, Savage Season is the masterpiece of dark suspense that introduced Hap and Leonard to the thriller scene. It hasn't been the same since.

    Story
    "Hap and Leonard, a series you shouldn't miss out"
    Where does Savage Season rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Savage Season played well as an audiobook. I was so impressed with the story I probably should have picked up the hard copy instead. But, all the time and energy put into making this audiobook was worth such a noteworthy production. Well done.


    What about Phil Gigante’s performance did you like?

    Phil Gigante's voice was perfect for a Lansdale novel. I was especially pleased with his voice acting on female characters....it didn't sound cheesy.


    Any additional comments?

    This is the second Lansdale novel I have decided to try on Audible. Overall, the experience was pleasant and entertaining. I'm usually pretty busy when playing a chapter from each audiobook but I always seem to know where I am in the story. Well done to those who put their hard work into this piece.

    Story
    "SUE ME, I'VE GOT A JUVENILE STREAK"

    IT'S ALL COMEDY TO YOU TWO.
    You take out chapters 8 thru 16 and this is a five star book. If you are listening and you are between these chapters and tired of all the sophomoric joking, skip to chapter 17, you will not miss any of the story.

    I got this during the horror sale, and it is not a horror story. Joe R. Lansdale is known best for his western horrors, but this is not even close to those. It is a fun story, with lots of joking about Blacks, gays, gangsters and sex. As mentioned above I liked it except for the middle of the book, when I got tired of the all the silliness. Lansdale writes a lot of short stories and this is suitable to that, but in novel length it does not work as well. This is basically an adventure story and a remember the sixties story. Having been born in 1958, I was fairly young in the sixties, but I do remember the attitude of the young people of that time and this is spot on.

    Narrator is excellent and adds to the enjoyment of the book.
