Live by Night Dennis Lehane read online review & book description:

From New York Times bestselling author Dennis Lehane comes this epic, unflinching tale of the making and unmaking of a gangster in the Prohibition Era of the Roaring Twenties—now a Warner Bros. movie starring Ben Affleck, Elle Fanning, Zoe Saldana, and Sienna Miller.

Meticulously researched and artfully told, Live by Night is the riveting story of one man’s rise from Boston petty thief to the Gulf Coast’s most successful rum runner, and it proves again that the accolades New York Times bestseller Lehane consistently receives are well deserved. He is indeed, “a master” (Philadelphia Inquirer) whose “true literary forefathers include John Steinbeck as well as Raymond Chandler” (Baltimore Sun). And, “Boy, does he know how to write” (Elmore Leonard).

    The book was pretty good as long as its setting was Boston. The rest of the book was one long melodrama.
  • Good story

    A fast paced thrill ride that engulfs the reader with epically descriptive story telling and a plot full of twists and turns. Read it, you'll be glad you did.

    Dennis Lehane is one of our greatest storytellers. I'm thankful that I've enjoyed his previous books so much that I jumped into this one. Can't say enough about it. Do yourself a favor and curl up with this one. I stayed up until 2 AM to finish it, which I never do. Looking forward to see what Ben Affleck does with the material. I'm confident it'll be a great movie and more than likely win some major awards. Please keep it up Mr. Lehane!

    Although this book took a little to get me hooked, once it did, I couldn't put it down! As usual, Dennis Lehane is an expert at giving you all the nitty gritty details that truly make a story complete! I was not disappointed at all. Get through the initial first few chapters and it begins to pick up at a rapid pace.
  • His best yet

    I seriously couldn't put this book down. It's a day later and I'm still thinking heavily about the characters. I loved everything about this book and (fingers crossed) it will make a great movie!
  • Wow!

    This is my first book by this author and it won't be my last. I was captured from the beginning and remained enthralled throughout the whole story.
