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)
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.
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
