Stick – Elmore Leonard


by Elmore Leonard


Edmond Gagnon‘s review

Jan 05, 2018  · 


I’ve seen more movies made from Elmore Leonard’s books than I’ve read his novels. I think Stick is the second or third novel. It’s a bit of a slow starter, but builds a good momentum, gathering your interest along the way. The story is kind of a rags to riches tale of a simple, but smart guy who tries to get back on his feet after a stint in federal penitentiary.
Stick also became a movie, starring Burt Reynolds. If I recall correctly it was a bit slow too, but a likable flick.
