Review: Praise for John D. MacDonald and the Travis McGee novels
"The "great entertainer of our age, and a mesmerizing storyteller. Stephen King
My favorite novelist of all time . . . All I ever wanted was to touch readers as powerfully as John D. MacDonald touched me. No price could be placed on the enormous pleasure that his books have given me. He captured the mood and the spirit of his times more accurately, more hauntingly, than any literature writer yet managed always to tell a thunderingly good, intensely suspenseful tale. Dean Koontz
To diggers a thousand years from now, the works of John D. MacDonald would be a treasure on the order of the tomb of Tutankhamen. Kurt Vonnegut
A master storyteller, a masterful suspense writer . . . John D. MacDonald is a shining example for all of us in the field. Talk about "the" "best." Mary Higgins Clark
A dominant influence on writers crafting the continuing series character . . . I envy the generation of readers just discovering Travis McGee, and count myself among the many readers savoring his adventures again. Sue Grafton
One of the great sagas in American fiction. Robert B. Parker
Most readers loved MacDonald s work because he told a rip-roaring yarn. I loved it because he was the first modern writer to nail Florida dead-center, to capture all its languid sleaze, racy sense of promise, and breath-grabbing beauty. Carl Hiaasen
The "consummate" pro, a master storyteller and witty observer . . . John D. MacDonald created a staggering quantity of wonderful books, each rich with characterization, suspense, and an almost intoxicating sense of place. The Travis McGee novels are among the finest works of fiction ever penned by an American author and they retain a remarkable sense of freshness. Jonathan Kellerman
What a joy that these timeless and treasured novels are available again. Ed McBain
Travis McGee is the last of the great knights-errant: honorable, sensual, skillful, and tough. I can t think of anyone who has replaced him. I can t think of anyone who would dare. Donald Westlake
There s only one thing as good as reading a John D. MacDonald novel: reading it again. A writer way ahead of his time, his Travis McGee books are as entertaining, insightful, and suspenseful today as the moment I first read them. He is the all-time master of the American mystery novel. John Saul"
