Triple Dutch

21 Dec

Harper Audio has taken a good chunk of Elmore “Dutch” Leonard’s bibliography, which includes more wonderous reading (stories, characters and dialogue) than any human could believably seem to be capable of creating and released audio book and audio download iterations. I have found so many of Dutch’s 40 novels so pleasurable that it would be misleading to create one of those journalistic contrivances of a top 12 list or such.

Out of Sight the 1998 film by Steve Soderburgh is, however, my favorite film rendition of a Leonard story and now comes the audio version read by George Guidall (who even makes the female voices listenable).Interestingly, each of the three versions has its own merits (and alterations) which have made each of them a fresh and highly amusing experience.

Next, I intend to give Riding the Rap (Performed by Frank Muller) a listen — as you might know, this story’s hero is US Marshall Raylan Givens the lead character in the FX series Justified which I am pleased to report has been renewed for a second season.

And so forth…
