Reading this screenplay makes one realize just how much the Coens impose their personal vision upon their films. If one has seen the film, one can just hear the characters saying their lines: every intonation, every pause, seems accounted for in the prose transcription.
Even if one has seen the film, there are a few good reasons to buy this book. There are a few scenes that don't appear in the final cut which add a little to the characters. The descriptions of characters and locations might shed a little light upon how the Coens want their viewers to see certain things. And most importantly, the screenplay is preceded by an extremely amusing anecdote relating to the mock-'truthfulness' of the film.

If you want an example script to learn from this is it. Concise yet deep, few words are ever wasted and every scene has a meaning. Script moves at a cracking pace but it's all so easy to follow and get involved with. Characters shine out from the pages.

From those dark wrighters of Blood Simple and Millers Crossing comes another following their style but with a touch of comedy. It's a story about a kidnap and the conciquences of it. For those of you public oput there that wish for a book combining the truth of crime this is the book for you.

The book arrived in appalling condition, but other than that it was all fine. I cannot say whether it was a good read or not, as I gave it as a gift.

Not what I thought it was. V expensive for what it is.
