    Great little neo noir crime drama I really liked the continuity, it jumped around a lot, and told the story from a few different perspectives.It was short, sweet and well written.

    Rating 4 of five The Publisher Says Much later, as he sat with his back against an inside wall of a Motel 6 just north of Phoenix, watching the pool of blood lap toward him, Driver would wonder whether he had made a terrible mistake Later still, of course, there d be no doubt But for now Driver is, as they say, in the moment And the moment includes this blood lapping toward him, the pressure of dawn s late light at windows and door, traffic sounds from the interstate nearby, the sound of someone weeping in the next room Thus begins Drive, a new novella by one of the nation s most respected and honored writers of noir fiction Set mostly in Arizona and L.A., the story is, according to Sallis, about a guy who does stunt driving for movies by day and drives for criminals at night In classic noir fashion, he is double crossed and, though before he has never participated in the violence I drive That s all , he goes after the ones who doublecrossed and tried to kill him My Review It s 153pp of very noir y noir It s got an anti hero just as antiheroic as you want him to behe knows how to do everything, drive, fight, drink, kill, pick a noir skill and Driver no other name has it.I m a sucker for that kind of all rounder I like Sallis s New Orleans series featuring Lew Griffin, too, but this begins a new to me series of noir novellas featuring Driver I ll be back for .It s violent, but not graphic The killings all take place in front of our eyes, but apart from the sh...

    This is an excellent contemporary noir novel in which a character becomes caught up by circumstances largely beyond his control and must then struggle to somehow survive.The main protagonist, Driver, is a stunt driver for the movies, and there s none better But he also moonlights driving for robberies, and the thrill is principally in the driving itself rather than in the monetary rewards He makes his position clear to anyone who wants to employ his services I drive That s all I do I don t sit in while you re planning the score or while you re running it down You tell me where we start, where we re headed, where we ll be going afterwards, what time of day I don t take part, I don t know anyone, I don t carry weapons I drive Apart from his driving, Driver leads a minimalist existence, moving frequently, paying cash, leaving virtually no trail But then, as must always happen in a book like this, things go wrong on a numbe...

    Driver did not want to know the details of the job he was on, all he did was drive He was on the streets in the beginning without a penny to his name then a fate encounter in a bar hooked him up with the stunt car driving world You won t find this great story telling but a biography of one man s plight in the concrete jungle He was not brought up with a silver spoon in his mouth but was street savvy and knew how to get by He could out smart the players As always the glamorous life of a stuntman by day and getaway man by night comes with it s dangers and he finds himself a problem in the shape of a mobster and tries to stay alive I found it enjoyable to have the written word describe stunts and driving in general, a change from watching it on the big screen The movie adaptation is out so I had to read this novel first instead of his other titles I hope to read of his works in the near future Driver d been out three days before to get a car He always picked his own car The cars weren t stolen, which was the first mistake people made, pros and amateurs alike Instead, he bought them off small lots You looked for something bland, something that would fade into the background But you also wanted a ride that could get up o its rear wheels and paw air if you needed it to Himself, he had a preference for older Buick s, mid range, some shade of brown or gray, but he wasn t locked in This time what he found was a ten year old Dodge You could run this thing into the si...

    What the f k is this about Why s the chronology all skewed Does Driver give back the money or doesn t he If he does, why And what s in the bag he leaves for his foster parents If he doesn t, then why s he so pissed at Nino for not honouring the deal Who set him up anyway Why How Maybe there are answers in here maybe I just can t be bothered finding them But my strong impression is that Sallis can t be bothered either, that to him it s all about style, and that some part of him wishes he wasn t a crime writer anyway, and didn t have to bother with things like plot or suspense In the bio on the back flap of my edition it says he has also written an avant garde novel, Renderings I mean, Jeez, doesn t that whet your whistle Who uses a word like avant garde to describe his own work anyway And Renderings Add to this the utterly vague and epigrammatic use of a Borges quotation at the story s climax I m a Borges fan and I don t even have any idea why he s quoting it and you have the portrait of a conflicted writer A shame too, cos his style ain t...

    Long story short I saw this book at the library and I wanted to read it I saw the movie a few years ago and it s one of my favorite movies and I wasn t even aware that it was a book, and the book is only 150 pages with pretty big font so I was able to finish it in a little over an hour, but wow this was nothing like the movie I mean it was, but it wasn t I didn t like how it was written, it s so detached from the main character Driver, and maybe it s meant to be that way I mean we don t even know his real name, he s referred to as Driver throughout the entire book but I didn t care for that It was impossible to be attached to any characters in this book, really.Any time any characters died in this book it seemed to have little to no affect on Driver, and the writing style was so hard to get into I didn t like how nearly every other chapter had some random flashback of his childhood that was almost always irrelevant to things happening in the story.The only thing I really liked about this book is the fa...

    Did you see the movie yet I saw it last year, expecting to be overwhelmed by a genius piece of film making the hype was massive, the right people were saying the right things, Oscars were mentioned and instead what I got was a very good but not brilliant, subtle piece of noir film making.Moving on to today and I have read the novel, complete with the face of Ryan Gosling on the cover, my first experience of James Sallis and a novel that has been called a minor masterpiece by at least two separate reviewers on the cover alone Having been burned once by Drive related expectation I was slightly less excited than I ordinarily might have been on finding this book.Driver himself is a very good character for this kind of novel, the strong and silent type, single minded and determined to succeed, if you fuck with him you ll regret it He s a man conflicted over his lifestyle and through several flashbacks you get a feel for who he is and where he s been and what s contributed to who he is now This conflict...

    There s an old adage amongst some of us online reviewers that kinda sorta goes like this if you have to resort to frequently using words like perfect, riveting, startling, and stunning, you re than likely describing what the story isn t for the average person because the average person the casual reader, Joe Six Pack with a good in his hands tends to find these adjectives descriptive of very specific events in his life events like falling in love, throwing the game winning touchdown pass, and having a child As a consequence of such overblown rhetoric, James Sallis DRIVE ends up being memorable only on the grounds that one was duped into believing such a middleground neo noir tale is destined to be literature s next classic when it ll probably be nothing in the next ten years Yes, it s lean, and it could quite probably be read in a single sitting if not in a handful of hours, and, yes, it s full of the pretty sounding, poetic prose any reader of Sallis has come to expect, but there s little meat on these bloodied bones Driver sticks to what he does well he drive...

    Das nenne ich mal eine kurzweilige Lekt re.Ein junger Mann kommt nach Hollywood Das Einzige, was er wirklich gut kann ist Autofahren Und so wird er Stuntfahrer in Filmen, die ihn nicht interessieren und dar ber hinaus Fahrer bei Verbrechen, ber die er keine Details wissen will Das geht nat rlich nicht lange gut und mit Driver einen anderen Namen erfahren wir nicht versinkt der Leser in einem Strudel aus Gewalt und Gegengewalt Das Ganze erinnert im Stil sehr an alte Noir Geschichten, Desillusionierung und K hle dominieren die Szenen, auch wenn Driver leise Sympathien f r einige seiner Weggef hrten entwickelt Wir erfahren das Ein oder Andere ber Drivers Vergangenheit und sehen am Ende, wohin es ihn ber die Romanhandlung hinaus treiben wird.Ein typischer Dialog Glaubst du, wir suchen uns unser Leben aus Nein Aber ich glaube auch nicht, dass es uns aufgedr ngt wird Mit komm...

    Re Read in 2015 originally read in May 2011 I ve been on sort of a casual James Sallis binge lately, so I decided to squeeze in a re read of the first book I read by him I liked it a lot this time, which might be due to the fact that I m familiar with his writing, or I m in just a different mindset In Drive, Sallis tries his hand at a hard boiled, Parker style heist story And while being true to all the conventions of the genre, he still infuses it with his own trademark style minimalist but effective prose, a non linear structure, and HEAVY emphasis on character over plot development Our main man only known as Driver is a skilled stunt driver for the movies by day and still manages to hold a part time job as a wheelman for thieves As with Sallis s other work, this is of a character portrait, and Driver is definitely an intriguing character, tough but still private and introspective He wouldn t hesitate in stabbing a hard ass in the throat, but also wouldn t hesitate to walk to a local payphone and call a screenwriter friend whenever he needs help understanding a difficult word he reads in the used paperbacks he buys at the cut rate store And the book also has an awesome first chapter, and one of my favorite opening paragraphs in fiction Much later, as he sat with his back against an inside wall of a Motel 6 just north of Phoenix, watching the pool of blood lap to...
