There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
But there were only 8, so I craved more. I knew they were based on the books so I thought I'd see how it matched up.
Different. I could see parts of three movies in one book. Some of the characters were different.
Still a great read.
BTW, I bought the book used through Amazon's vendors and couldn't be happier. The hardcover was better then I expected. Like new, no pages bent, no cover tears. Price was right.

I don't think that this is really a woman's novel but it was a good read. I expect that readership is mostly male. If you like a police story with great characters and creepy bad guys, then this is great for you.
I'm afraid that imho the film wins hands down.
I only finished reading it because I was comparing it with the film, to see how faithful that was to the original - I probably wouldn't have finished it, if it had been a stand alone purchase. Which tells you how good the writing seemed to me.
In the film, Selleck is physically much bigger and older than the book character and his portrayal is much better for it - he brings gravitas and experience absent in the book. Thankfully, the mob hitman Jo Jo Genest becomes Jo Genest in the film, and although a musclebound thug in the book his film portrayal as a psycopath of normal size by Stephen Baldwin is far more nuanced and interesting. I wondered why the Irishwoman Molly Crane in the book, was portrayed as a black woman in the film - this was a change I didn't think was for the better.
I first saw the Jesse Stone series on T.V. and was captured by Tom Selleck's performance as Jesse Stone although he isn't exactly the right age!
The book has a better, more involved plot line than the DVD - which remains excellent, just slightly different.
Will definitely buy the remainder of the books in the series - and also the DVDs.
