Whether or not you will enjoy this book largely depends on how you feel about minimalist writing. That is, writing with a bare minimum level of detail or explanation. Elmore Leonard is an expert in the form. Unfortunately, it just doesn't appeal to me much. There were many parts where I longed for a fair bit more than I was given, and leaps in events that make little or no logical sense in light of the story provided. Even when things seem to go the way that they logically feel as though they should, the explanations and reasoning provided felt off. It was certainly not a bad book, by any means, but is definitely one that involves a very particular writing style that will only truly appeal to a particular audience. I just wasn't able to suspend my disbelief quite enough for it to really work for me. Oddly enough, I did like some of the characters and events quite a lot, given the minimalist style. So, it clearly wasn't something I could say I disliked.
