Elmore Leonard is one of the best. And Get Shorty is one of his better books. What makes his books so real is that his characters are unpredictable. Good guys aren't all that good and bad guys will sometimes surprise you too.

This is my favorite Elmore Leonard book that I've read so far. Great characters, plots and sub-plots, simply classic Leonard, the king of crime.

The publisher deleted the book past page 219. Nothing past Chapter 28. What a bunch of junk!!

Elmore Leonard peoples his fictional landscapes with characters as richly varied and eccentric as his own literary moniker. Chili Palmer is equaly loveable and despicable and somehow always manages to be truthfull as he pursues the GoldenCalf in Hollywood sometimes even managing to lift the curtain to reveal the thin line between business and crime. J.R. Locke Author of Possible Twenty, a Gangster Tale & Down and Out in Manhattan

Aweome storyline and extremely inventive. Leonard is truly the master of american fiction. Be Cool, the followup to this book, although not as good as Get shorty is still a nice way to kill a couple of afternoons.

Get Shorty was the first Elmore Leonard I've ever read, and I have to say he has me hooked on his work. After reading this I went out and got Be Cool, Rum Punch, Out Of Sight, Riding The Rap And Killshot and I couldn't wait to read the next one. Elmore Leonard's Stories are sharp, in plot and Character. If you enjoy a awsome, cool and somtimes funny crime story you have found the king. Great Read Get Shorty Is A Great Place To Start On Elmore Leonard!

Having seen the movie a while back I decided to read the book as an introduction to Leonard. The plot invloves a shylock pursuing a delinquent borrower, and ending up in Los Angeles trying to break into the movie business. It's a great way to poke fun at Hollywood types, from actors to agents to studios to other wanna-be players. Leonard has a flair for characters and realistic dialogue, and the plot works too. There are lots of funny moments and the book will keep you interested. I am looking forward to reading more of Leonard's work, including the sequel to Get Shorty, Be Cool (which I hope is better than the tepid movie).
