Reluctantly she accepts, but with the dangerous winter chill already in full force, a misguided gang of sixties revolutionaries, about to make the worst move of their lives playing Robin Hood and Leonard already missing his dogs and vanilla cookies, they are gonna need more than a little luck to get out of this one alive...
First in a brilliant series of novels featuring the wise cracking, good guy, kung fu bad asses Hap and Leonard, from author Joe R Lansdale.
I first read this back in the late nineties and I've read everything featuring these two ever since. Packed full of great dialogue, weird Texan characters, morality and good ol brutal violence, these books are an absolute blast and come very highly recommended from this reviewer. This is by no means the best in the series, mostly setting the tone for what is to come in later novels, but with that said, this is still a very entertaining read. 4.5/5
Lansdale's background as, among other things, a writer of horror fiction manifests in some greatly menacing scenes, including a chase, later in the book, but he also seems to have taken a leaf out of the Gregory McDonald school of Humourous Crime Fiction, with lengthy dialogue driven passages, very economical storytelling, and riveting characterisation (not to mention the humour). Plus, the books manage to capture that perfect, romanticised Texas, and the less-than-perfect poverty, racism and ignorance that also appear in that fine state.
It's not the best book in the series but you can read it in a few hours (don't start near the evening!) and it leads fairly well into Mucho Mojo, the better known second book in the series!
