The Getaway by Jim Thompson

I was listening to the From Dusk Till Dawn commentary and Tarantino praised The Getaway during the ending and got me interested in the book. Has anyone here read it? And if so, what does everyone think of it?

I haven't but I need to.

I mentioned this in another thread but Jim Thompson is one of the great unsung pulp noir writers. Killer Inside Me and Pop. 482 are awesome. I need to read The Getaway.

Nope, never read it, but the movie (the 1972 version) is pretty good.
