A great read if you like a good story, dialogue, gritty action. Unbeatable.
Get Carter (the film title of the original book Jack's Return Home) is a classic, gritty British gangster story written in clear, concise language. It captures the working class, aspirant, and underworld lifestyles, set against the background of the industrial 1960s in a fast-moving, tense, and hard-hitting thriller. The dialogue is pared, sharp, and excellently constructed, making the book a real treat to read. It's success is proven by the fact that the 1971 film used most of it word for word. There aren't any better stories of its 'noir/anti-hero' type, even though it has spawned a few generations of attempted challengers.
