I run with the major crowd of Americans who see the movies first and then go to the original source. That is changing though I plan to try and delve into Captian America soon. I must be slightly annoyed because I want to finish reading so much.

fucgking world is big you know.

The way it is written is brilliant. It is great seeing how many direct quotes are in the movie from the book. I caught myself laughing at times picturing Tommy DeVito crushing Billy Bats' head it while reading and always had the soundtrack playing in my head during parts of the book.


Better than the movie, like most books. Leonard is a very entertaining writer. Chili Palmer is truly one of the coolest cats ever created.

That's the first McCarthy book I ever read and I liked it so much that I went to the library and picked up "Blood Meridian or The Evening Redness in the West" and let me tell you, THAT is the best book I've ever read!

I hear that a movie is in the works by Todd Field for 2011!
