I actually enjoyed this more than I (intially) enjoyed the movie as it was obvious there was a slight wink and nudge campiness facilitated by the director (Warren Beatty) and his fellow performers. Here, the plot seems a bit more "dark crime pulp" and the characters come off as brutally or maniacally dangerous (which is another notch in the plus column with the tough guy dialogue). This seems to be a more adult themed Dick Tracy though it's essentially what those that have seen the movie are alr [...]
All right, that's enough. I want this no-face character dead and I want Tracy dead. What's the matter, you bums forgotten how to kill people?I love movie novelizations.Have you no sense of pride in what you do? No sense of duty, no sense of destiny? I'm looking for generals; what have I got? Foot soldiers! I want Dick Tracy dead!
Novelizacion de la pelicula de 1990 de Disney. Aunque engañosamente pareciera una novela dirigida a un publico juvenil, el novelista de crime fiction y guionista del strip de Tracy por 11 años, lleva la historia a niveles algo mas complejos y oscuros, incluyendo personajes del strip que no salian en la pelicula, lo cual agradecen los fans de Dick Tracy. La novela esta bien escrita y resulta amena. Los cambios de la trama, enriquecen la historia, y el manejo de los personajes es muy bueno, no p [...]
Max Allan Collins- Dick Tracy (Bantam Books 1990) 3.75 StarsWhen five of the towns toughest thugs are found dead in a garage, and their boss follows shortly after, Dick Tracy is brought in on the case. It does not take him long to figure out just who is responsible for these murders, but proving could be the problem. Big Boy Caprice wants to take out all opposition and form an alliance between the biggest thugs in town, and he will eliminate anyone who gets in his way, even if it means Dick Trac [...]
Novelization of the 1990 Disney film might be enjoyable for young adults, though the character may not resonate with them as he did with newspaper readers in the '40s and '50s. Film buffs may find the read interesting, as the book is based on an early version of the script and differs in places from the film.Since Collins (a fan of the comic since childhood) took over writing "Tracy" when original creator Chester Gould retired, there's many more references to characters and situations in the str [...]
Great! I saw this as a kid on TV and taped it watching it over and over again until the tape malfunctioned. I really enjoyed this classic comic book turned into a movie. The sets, the costumes, the story. Thing about the movie though it wasn't perfect but the style was unforgettable.The book is really good too. I loved how much more was done in the book, it worked better being kept chronological than the jumping from scene to scene. Interesting difference is that we don't really know who the Bla [...]
I'm so lucky to finally got this novel (due to my research of Madonna). But if you think that I have an interest or eager to read anything about detective-story, you're wrong. Breathless Mahoney is the reason why I decide to have this novel. So I only read parts where Breathless was in them, the rest, I give it to DICK :D
This is one of my all-time favorite books, but I'm not sure why. A nice gritty feel-good kind of read? Something like that. Be forewarned, as some movie adaptations do, it has a different ending so the movie's ending is not spoiled.
like the movie it has a hard time going for an audience rating but unlike the movie everyone is given a great amount of charactor development and is a great read
I don't believe I am reviewing Dick Tracy I have read this 3 times so far and have enjoyed the cliches every single time!
