Summary

A stylish piece of noir fiction; now a major film starring Ryan Gosling and Carey Mulligan.

Drive is about a man who does stunt driving for movies by day and drives for criminals at night. Sallis combines murder, treachery, and payback in a sinister plot with resonances of 1940s pulp fiction and film noir. Told through a cinematic narrative that weaves back and forth through time and place, the story explores Driver's near-existential moral foundations, intercut with moments of bloody violence.

Not made for audible

Nearly impossible to listen to. Jumps so much from different angles and times and situations that you feel lightheaded. Have read the story on kindle and would advise using that medium where I would give it 5 stars.

Strange

This is one of the rare occasions that the film will be better, this book is rather boring and slow....
