Powerful and stylistically brilliant, Drive has been hailed by critics as the "perfect piece of noir fiction" (New York Times Book Review) and an instant classic.

"Drive is full of sly humor, poetic details and plenty of rude violence...a terrific ride." (Los Angeles Times)
"One stark and stunning tale of murder, treachery, and deceit....[Drive] packs a wallop." (Boston Globe)
"Full throttle...Sallis's riveting novella reads the way a Tarantino or Soderbergh neo-noir plays...Drive is one lean, mean, masterful machine. Grade: A." (Entertainment Weekly)
Short noirish novel about a movie stunt man who moonlights as a getaway driver for various heists. Well-written if occasionally confusing because the author has stripped the story so much to the bone that context is often missing from scenes. Still, enjoyed this one. Will probably read again.
a very modern noir-ish tale about a stunt driver who also drives getaway. but be warned, you need to pay attention because it is told non-linearly and you can get lost easily if you're distracted, but it will be worth it if you stick it out. different, and for me much better than it's sequel.
I saw the movie which was great then thought the audio book would be fantastic. Unfortunately for me, this was not the case; I found the audio version hard to follow and difficult to figure out what was going on for much of the time.
No I wouldn't.
Yes, the narrator was good.
Sallis takes you into the world of man known only as Drive, A Hollywood stunt driver and a getaway driver. Now he must kill to survive. Drive moves through life blending into the environment, and neither the ones who want his life, nor the one who wants his heart know the real Driver. YET!
Look for Driven the second book of the series, literature meets crime drama.I already read the book, now I can't wait to listen on audio.
Painful to get through. The narration is brutal. Drive is such an excellent movie I hoped the subject matter would have been at least comparable. Skip this
Its a fascinating tale that would begin on may 5th, 1989 in Mease Dunedin hospital and from there the legacy grew. I am adult now.
Honestly people who don't have a sense of direction.
The author failed to captured my attention.
Robert De Niro
The parts where it would derail to explain the little details of the main characters childhood while it seemed he was in peril.
I don't want to discourage reading this book. Its really hard to follow.
