It s just a Hap Leonard short story unexpected, lots of fun as usualwhat you would expect if you are a H L fan.
Fun dialogue, as per usual, but the plot felt rushed.
Lansdale is one of the best storytellers writing today and Hap and Leonard are 2 of my favorite characters that he has ever created This is just another one of his stories that I loved as usual The man can do no wrong A must read for all fans of his Hap and Leonard series.
The Most Dangerous Game Hap and Leonard style An absolute blast.
Always a good time spent with Hap and Leonard They may never go fishing again after this episode Psychos abound in this short story of our favorite misfits.
Briar Patch Boogie is not a novel It is not even a novella It is of a novelette But rather than get hung up on length, as men often do, let s talk about Briar Patch Boogie This is a near perfect read It is full of Lansdale s patent pending mix of violence and humor With a Kindle Unlimited subscription this is free, so that was an added bonus Hap Collins and Leonard Pine are two characters whose mis adventures are always eminently enjoyable The new reader can get a good thumbnail sketch of these [...]
Short Hap and Leonard mini adventure It might actually have wrapped up a bit too soon But it will do until I get their new book.The ebook is only 75% of the total book with the balance being an excerpt from Act of Love, a book about their cop friend Marvin.
Another Lansdale lite , an enjoyable read, but not nearly so much as a full blown Hap Leonard novel Also, I thought this one was supposed to have some continuity with the last full length novel Honky Tonk Samurai it didn t Neither did Coco Butternut Maybe with Rusty Puppy.I generally find the dashed off Kindle only novellas a bit unsatisfying, and I know they are aimed at the completist fans such as myself A little disappointed in Lansdale for participating in that trend.
So, there s a television show about Hap and Leonard that s close to finishing its first season I ve been hearing about it for several months now, and as good as it sounds, I have a hard time seeing how anyone can capture those characters as well as Lansdale does in his fiction But folks are hearing about it, are probably going to watch it, and maybe they want to read some of those Lansdale stories Enter Briar Patch Boogie.The story is, of course, about Hap and Leonard, and as usual, they fall ne [...]
Great short storyAlways a fun and fast paced read as you can never wait to reach the end of the book Well worth your time Lansdale always delivers.
A pleasant surprise to wake up to is a new Hap and Leonard novella by Joe R Lansdale Our heroes go fishing but stumble onto something nasty Suffice it to say that things get nastier There is a touch of social criticism in this short thriller, as good Christians show their disapproval for life s takers, but I will say no Our heroic lads face tough challenges, in the form of psychos, mosquitoes, and the elements in a swampy wasteland Once they start their Briar Patch Boogie, Hap and Leonard face [...]
A fun readI had never read anything by Joe Lansdale before and saw this novella though this would be a good way to find out if I would enjoy his writing Boy was glad I bought it What a fun read Hap and Leonard are two very completely laugh out loud characters But when it comes time to catch the bad guys you sure want these two on your side I will be moving on to read all of the Hap and Leonard books and all of any other books Joe Leonard writes I wish all authors offered novellas so you could ge [...]
Briar Patch Boogie A Hap and Leonard Novelette by Joe R Lansdale This novella is a quick and violet read, and I really mean violent While on a fishing trip in a heavily forested area, Hap and Leonard witness a violent crime and they become captives of a pair of vicious bow hunters However, Hap and Leonard are comfortable and skillful in the wilderness and they use their skills against their brutal captors This is a compelling story of survival and retribution.
Can t fault Lansdale for this class and reasonably priced little Hap and Leonard novelette As with all his their best, peerless dialogue, character work and pacing with an unflinching eye and strong stomach for the profoundly messed up stuff they get mired in thicker and dangerous than a Louisiana swamp
3.5 stars Short and sweet and lots of fun.
A As always, Mr Lansdale delivers a story full to the brim with horror, mystery, and comedy all rolled into one.
There is nothing not to love about a Hap and Leonard story You get a fair amount of snappy dialogue, a whole lot of righteous indignation, and at least two well deserved violent deaths.
Briar Patch Boogie Hap and Leonard the best Texas couple, read all in one shot in one night great story read it
Great short story.
