Absolute quality.

Writing as good as it can be, superb characters throughout. Completely engaging from first to last page. Atmospheric clever descriptive intelligent storytelling. Clipped quirky witty dialogue.
Completely and utterly recommended.

The sequel to Drive (2005), it continues the same flashback style as the first book. About one-third is reprise of the first book, one-third is exposition and narration, and one-third, plot movement.

Over all this book has less action than the first. The last half of the book is definitely a page turner, and since we know how it will end (he told us in the first book) we are eager to see how he manages to stay alive until then.

I would have suggested combining the two books into one novella/short novel.

stylistically, loved this book. Nice noir feel throughout. About a black P.I in New Orleans, with stories taking place in the 60's, 70's 80's and 890's. Or is it about New Orleans itself, or race, or the U.S. or the author. If you don't mind a bit of philosophy and have you tube to check out all the blues and jazz mentioned. well worth the read

Short but action packed novel. Driver is a career criminal, one that has a lethal combination of youth and wide variety of skills. He picked up a lot as a youth, everything from fast driving, martial arts, knife fighting and guns. He is cold blooded, analytical unlike other crime novel character - Parker.

But unlike Parker, Driver is person that appreciates the company - unfortunately whoever is associated with him dies rather suddenly and violently.

Very good novel, short and right on the spot. For all fans of Stark's Parker this is highly recommended.… (lisätietoja)
