The book was good but... the film was better. Arthur Penn genius fleshed out Bill Brooks story and the acting brought the characters, a bit two-dimensional in the book - to life. ( )

This book is worth reading, if only because it finally gives Bonnie a voice, an individual personality, and a back history. Furthermore, it’s short. Otherwise, the often-told story gains nothing from this retelling, and after a while, the broken English of the “salt-of-the-earth” locals begins to seem affected and annoying. Some readers will enjoy the new perspective enough to overcome the mediocre treatment, but a few will struggle to finish. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0765311887, Paperback)

She preferred guys with an edge to them. Bad Boys, her mama called them.

Then one night she met Clyde and knew her mama was right. If there was ever a bad boy, it was Clyde Chestnut Barrow. He had that look: those dark secretive eyes that never looked directly into yours. He had a pretty face and a smooth way of talking and she liked his silk shirt and the way he fit into it. He liked her too. They were destined to be star crossed lovers who blazed across the hot southwest in a time of drought and trouble. She wanted to be an actress and he wanted to rob banks. In an era that gave birth to the likes of Al Capone, John Dillinger, Pretty Boy Floyd and Baby Face Nelson--Bonnie and Clyde were to become America's version of Romeo and Juliet--with guns!

Their love for each other was without rhyme or reason, their attraction and bond unbreakable. They vowed the only thing that would ever seperate them was a bullet. A vow the Texas Rangers hoped to make come true. Bonnie, the beautiful petite blond poet was Clyde's equal in every respect. She was his lover and partner, and was willing to die for her man. Clyde was tough and agile, a troubled soul of a man who loved only two things: bank robbing and Bonnie Parker. Whether behind the wheel of a fast-moving Ford V-8, or the sultry bedroom of a Texas motel, their love and lives were unparalleled in the annals of history. Theirs is more than just a story of a fast and furious short and violent life--theirs is a story of unshakable love and devotion few ever experience.
