This is the first Dennis Lehane book I read that doesn't star Patrick Kenzie and Angela Gennaro. The Drop is based on a novella called Animal Rescue that was turned into the movie The Drop which Lehane wrote the script for and then turned into this book.

All and all was this a good book. Bob is an ordinary guy, a bit too ordinary for my liking I thought when I read the book. He works at the bar, goes to church every Sunday, but it was finding the puppy that changed his life, made him suddenly snap out of his monotone life. I mistook him throughout the book for being a too soft guy, but then the ending comes and then I realized that the person you should be worried about was not Eric Deeds, the psycho who claimed to own the puppy, but Bob, the kind, and shy bartender...



So this book gets 3.5 stars. It was not as good as other Lehane books I have read, and it would have been just 3 stars if not Lehane had turned the table and made the ending quite spectacular.


(I love Tom Hardy with the puppy so just one more pic) ( )

A very entertaining quick read. Looking at the copyright page it seems like Lehane padded out a short story that was published a few years previously to make it novel length so it could be released as a standalone book go coincide with the movie release. A little cynical, maybe, and the padding does show at time, but for the most part this is a satisfying, lean crime story with memorable characters, great prose and a killer twist. ( )

This was a great, quick read, full of all the good stuff Lehane excels at so well. A nice, tight crime novel, something I wish we could get more of from Lehane, though I do enjoy his forays outside of the genre. I haven't seen the movie, but now I want to.

I think there's really only one thing that I wasn't crazy about in this novel, and that was the overuse of everyone's names. It almost seemed conspicuous, as though the author had a specific reason for it, though if he did, I couldn't figure out what the purpose was.

Other than that, another great Lehane read. ( )

This was the 3rd or 4th Lehane book that I have read, and I can’t say that I liked this one all that much. All the characters are hard cases, and I didn’t care for any of them. As a Pit Bull owner and advocate I like that Bob saved the dog, but even that stressed me out since the poor dog was in the very center of the ongoing drama and its safety never guaranteed.

Lehane is a really good writer so it is not disappointing in that respect, but it was too sad and depressing for me. ( )

I'll read just about anything Lehane writes. ( )

Meanwhile, "Black sheep, black sheep!" we cry,

Safe in the inner fold;

And maybe they hear, and wonder why,

And marvel, out in the cold.
