The Switch by Elmore Leonard



He writes the way Hammett and Chandler might write today, if they sharpened their senses of ironic humor and grew better ears for dialogue. The best writer of crime fiction alive. To this end, The Switch is a typical Elmore Leonard novel. The reader takes a seat in the bleachers located behind the one-way-viewing pages and watches Mickey Dawson live her life through ordinary and extraordinary circumstances. Along the way, Ordell and Louis discover that being tough and being human can be mutually exclusive, unless your mind is demented like their "friend" Richard.

About book: Elmore Leonard is known for his crazy-good, realistic dialogue who’s also a skilled and imaginative storyteller able to create memorable characters and plots. There’s just one snag though: he doesn’t want her back. The thin plot is streeeeeeeeeeetched by Leonard over scores of pages with precious little happening to validate its length. It takes a third of the novel before Mickey (Frank’s wife) is kidnapped, then at least another third before she’s let go over a misunderstanding, then the novel meanders at an excruciatingly slow pace until the blessed end.

Dangerous
Is so good and impossible to put down. Hilarious dialogue from characters rich in personality( even likable). No other authors in this genre can touch Leonard: he is the best!

This was a really good book, so entertaining and a quick read. Read it for a Book Club and all of us liked it. I really can picture it as a movie. Was supposed to be released in Aug. of 2014 and I'm waiting. The "bad" guys were really likeable guys, quite compassionate and funny. I ended up liking them so much more than the rich husband. It had a very unpredictable plot which I loved and the ending was a double surprise. It was my first book by the author and I'm ready to read more.

Pretty typical Leonard, great dialogue, terrific characters that you can care about, and an imaginative story line. No raglan or Raymond but still a very good read highly recommended

For me the story started slow but picked up momentum and by the finish I was totally entertained. I have only read several of Mr Leonard's works but have enjoyed all of them.

Just great reading
Kesalard
Clever plotting, but too much time spent on main character's emotions. Found myself wondering if he wrote it.
It's so easy
The story was a little hard to follow.
If there existed a Mount Rushmore for writers who have captured the street narrative you would see Elmore Leonard in stone. Captivating and will require a shower and a drink after the final page!
