Summary:

Narrated by Jennifer Jason Leigh

Quentin Tarantino’s long-awaited first work of fiction — at once hilarious, delicious, and brutal — is the always surprising, sometimes shocking new novel based on his Academy Award- winning film.

RICK DALTON – Once he had his own TV series, but now Rick’s a washed-up villain-of-the week drowning his sorrows in whiskey sours. Will a phone call from Rome save his fate or seal it?

CLIFF BOOTH – Rick’s stunt double, and the most infamous man on any movie set because he’s the only one there who might have gotten away with murder. . . .

SHARON TATE – She left Texas to chase a movie-star dream, and found it. Sharon’s salad days are now spent on Cielo Drive, high in the Hollywood Hills.

CHARLES MANSON – The ex-con’s got a bunch of zonked-out hippies thinking he’s their spiritual leader, but he’d trade it all to be a rock ‘n’ roll star.

    Meh. The movie was great. This not so much. Why elaborate endlessly over uninteresting vignettes? It just became sooooo boring. Tarantino is a wonderful filmmaker. As a novelist, not so much.

    The vision Tarantino has is 100% meant for film. Maybe he will have better novels up his sleeve for later in his career, but this was not worth the pages it took up. There are literally entire chapters that don’t push the story forward whatsoever, following weak characters that live better in 90 second scenes rather than an hour of boring reading material. The classic Tarantino tongue-in-cheek style of writing came off as pretentious in the book too. And Jennifer Jason Leigh further pushed this pretension in her narrating, I did not enjoy her reading. (Aside from the fact that her voice is more groggy than sultry) The only thing holding this story together was the film and the performances of the characters. The novel didn’t give them any more depth, it just felt like we read deleted/alternate scenes that we were better off without in the first place. That being said, some moments were entertaining. But it was only about 20% of the book
