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!

Format: Paperback
In adapting Elmore Leonard's "Out of Sight" for the screen, Scott Frank has done what all talented and conscientous adpators should do - he has stayed true to the material, and expanded upon it without straying from the nature of the source. In short, Frank has crafted a rarety - a script which is better than its source material. But perhaps more interesting than the hundred-twenty-odd pages of screenplay is the twelve-or-so page interview with Frank, reprinted from Scenario Magazine, in which Frank discusses his motivation for the changes made from Leonard's novel, and the ways in which novel-writing and screenwriting differ. I felt Frank was robbed in not winning the Best Adapted Screenplay Oscar for this taut, exceedingly cool work, all of which reflects incandescently from the page. Nobody writes 'em like Elmore Leonard, sure; but nobody adapts 'em like Scott Frank.

This was my first Elmore Leonard novel, and I will definitely be reading some more. The characters are well-rounded and realistically written and the dialogue is witty and sharp. Leonard achieves a great sense of atmosphere by setting the novel between two extremes - the humid climate of Florida, and the snow-ridden city-scape of Detroit. A testimony to Leonard's writing is the fact that the film (well worth checking out!) is full of large chunks of dialogue copied verbatim from the novel.
A fantastic slick and stylish read which piles on the tension and atmosphere in spades.

Format: Paperback
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.

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.

... 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.

Good book, the film is actually very closely tied to it, much of the dialogue is very recognisable. Loved the 'extra scenes' that put more flesh on the bones of the story
