Book Review: James Sallis, Drive (2005)

I had read so many raves for Drive that I expected something great, but here’s what I got instead: a standard-issue noir anti-hero from the Stark-Parker Division; a standard-issue noir plot made not much fresher by its chronologically jumbled narration; enjoyable tangets into the world of Hollywood stunt-driving; and a shout-out to Jorge Luis Borges. In sum, a disappointment. Grade: C+

  1. Don't know how Sallis got his reputation. He is so bad it is unreal.
