Great John D.!

If you could sum up On the Make in three words, what would they be?

Elegant pulp fiction.

What other book might you compare On the Make to and why?

Can't compare. John D. was one of a kind. This book was written before the Travis McGee, but has all the elements of that series and more.

What about Robert Armin’s performance did you like?


Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

John D.s writing style is unsurpassed. Great plotting and characters.

Any additional comments?

Highly recommended for those who like this genre.

MacDonald is more than McGree

Where does On the Make rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is the first MacDonald novel I have read/listened other than the Travis McGree series. I was reluctant to try this, as often early novels of writers do not live up to later works. In this case, I was entranced during the entire book. I will definitely be buying more MacDonald books.
