If you've seen the movie and loved it, buy this book because it's even better. If you've seen the movie and hated it, buy this book because it's better. If you haven't seen the movie, go see the movie and then buy this book. It's so good, it turned me into an Elmore Leonard addict. It also made me want to become a bank robber. That idea wore off, the Leonard addiction didn't. I can't recommend this book highly enough. If you like your books fast-paced, all the fat trimmed off so there's nothing to bore you, just one highlight after another, try Elmore Leonard, start here with Out of Sight!

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic Elmore Leonard 13 Sep 2013

So he is criticised as formulaic and not developing character? Who cares, he's a great story teller and this is a great story. Unputdownable. The late great, RIP.

... the characters never give but much about themselves - the unfolding plot and the coincidences which link two opposed characters together always take precedence. This is a really good example of the crime/thriller genre - but it always seems to be holding back from something it's dying to tell us. Well worth the read, though.

This is how to write a good crime novel. Sharp dialogue and clean plot lines. No sick dwelling on crimes against some poor girl but quick fire repartee and move on fast with the story.

4.0 out of 5 stars fun 22 Nov 2011
this was an enjoyable read. his famous dialogue is up to form - as a wannabe writer, it is galling to see how easy it is for him to create characters with their own identities in so few words. the book rattles along, nothing wasted - it's nearly all plot, and little description. i enjoyed it, but it sometimes felt a little like watching a film on fast forward. there wasn't much time to savour the mood or anything else. and the end was particularly sudden. i would recommend it as a quick easy read, with decent characters, but it's not a classic and unlikely to stay with me for long. but i'm not sure that's what he intended anyway. i think it does exactly what he wanted it to do.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read 23 May 2004
What else can i say? i got straight into it and couldn't put it down. The book is full of twists, excitement....and its also humorous as well! Definately buy it if you're bored or just need to read something, its worth it.
