Savage Season: A Hap and Leonard Novel (1)
Savage Season: A Hap and Leonard Novel (1) | Joe R Lansdale
The basis for the new TV series "Hap and Leonard" A rip-roaring, high-octane, Texas-sized thriller, featuring two friends, one vixen, a crew of washed-up radicals, loads of money, and bloody mayhem.Hap Collins and Leonard Pine are best friends, yet they couldn't be more different. Hap is an east Texas white-boy with a weakness for Texas women. Leonard is a gay, black Vietnam vet. Together, they steer up more commotion than a fire storm. But that's just the way they like it. So when an ex-flame of Hap's returns promising a huge score. Hap lets Leonard in on the scam, and that's when things get interesting. Chockfull of action and laughs, " Savage Season "is the masterpiece of dark suspense that introduced Hap and Leonard to the thriller scene. It hasn't been the same since.

I watched this series on Netflix, and to my delight found out it was a series of books. So I've started down the path of Hap and Leonard in written form 🙂 I was a little leary at first, because I loved the show. It was unlike anything I'd ever watched and was sad to hear it had been canceled. But that just gives me more reason (and time) to read the series of books.

I really want to read this book now because this show is pretty good and is reminding me a lot of Texas (in a good way and bad way).. even though it's filmed in Louisiana haha

Great dialogue, characterizations, descriptive settings, and fast plot line without any obvious continuity errors. A clean read; and a deep desire that Leonard was real! Maybe a little light (feels like a TV show); and Hap thinks w/his d1ck; but still fun and entertaining :-)

GuiltyFeat The series just gets better from here. 4y

Saw this on litsy earlier, and picked up this first in the Hap & Leonard series today. Published in 1990, it's a little dated: No cell/smart phones, computers, or satellite TV... And the war of the protags' youth is The Vietnam War! So maybe label this as a hist-fic in addition to mystery!

Guildedearlobe My issue with this book and the first season of the show is that Hap and Leonard are almost spectators to the events. That definitely changes as the series progresses. Love the interactions between the main characters. 4y
