Rest in Peace Elmore Leonard

Today, I am sadden by the passing of Elmore Leonard who kept writing until a few days ago. I have read several of his books, but hadn’t written a review for any of them. What I appreciated about his books were the characters. Tough guys who were always thinking of the next score that would end badly mostly because, well, not that bright to begin with. Without Elmore Leonard, there wouldn’t be a Quentin Tarantino or anti-hero characters that ruminate throughout the popular culture. The part of life that drives one to despair is that every author you enjoy reading seems to die before you.

Rest in Peace Elmore Leonard, you will be missed by this reader of fiction.
