This wasn't pure Leonard, but the script was based on his book by Tarantino. Good, very twisty, & believable. The character's motivations were understandable & logical, if disgusting in some cases.

I LOVED THIS! The film is one of my favourites and so I was a bit apprehensive about reading this incase either the book or the film was ruined by the other. But the two are both so brilliant, and the script of the film so true to the book that both are equally as brilliant as each other.
The story is based around Ordell Robbie, a big-time criminal involved in gun-trafficking. But with his money tied up overseas, he recruits Jackie Burke, a beautiful air stewardess to bring the money in for him.

This is a screenplay-novell. If you've seen the movie then you will not get any surprises. Otherwise it is a quick, easy-read pulp fiction.

I love reading his screenplays. Mostly to could how many times a character uses the "n" word.

Tarantino's vision was projected quite clearly from his screenplay to the big screen.
