Colonel D Top Contributor: Personally, I found the films rather stupid and nowhere near as good as the book. There are two main plots, when we first meet Fletch working on an assignment trying to discover the supplier of illicit drugs at a local California beach. Fletch is glib and fast on his feet assuming a variety of personas in his investigation of the wealthy Stanwyk as he tries to verify the authenticity of his disease and desire to be killed.
Fletch (novel) – Wikipedia
The big screen Fletch is some sort of master of disguise adopting all kinds of ridiculous mcdnald identities. The effect is much more subtle and believable. Did I mention that the court appointments and medal presentation are all on the same day?! Here he talks about a.
Revolvers have a cylinder that in modern pistols are integrated into the frame of the gun which bullets are loaded into. Semi-automatic hand guns have removable magazines for loading ammunition. The reader will start to wonder how the author and of course Fletch is going to pull all this together by the end? Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. If you haven’t read a Gregory McDonald novel before, Fletch is a great place to start. McDonald has a gregroy unique style, his stories are almost entirely dialog.
Instead of a flat description, he allows several different characters to comment, which allows you to see something from several different perspectives at once.
Every character in a McDonald story is fundamentally flawed, usually in interesting and humorous ways, especially his “heroes”. Fletcher is no exception. He’s snarky, lazy, and completely irresponsible, but that’s what makes him so fun He’s really only good at one thing, investigative reporting, but he’s extremely good at that.
He also happens to be probably the luckiest character ever produced mcdonals fiction. Things like beautiful women and suitcases full of money just seem to fall into his lap Fletch mcdonalf the first book written in the Fletch series and arguably the best.
The series isn’t written in chronological order and, for the most part, the books can be read in any order although I recommended reading Fletch, Too immediately after Fletch Won or you’ll miss a few inside jokes. The only real issue is price. Another instance of the publisher setting the ebook price higher than the new hardback price. The books are old enough that you can find a used paperback for less than a dollar. So when I learned that the movie was based on the first of a mconald of novels, I jumped at the chance to purchase so I could see the differences between the two.
Boy, was I in for a major shock!
The story IS mostly the same If you choose to read the book after having seen the movie, like me, you need to clear Chevy Chase out of your mind. He is an anti-hero. That being said, it was a good, fast-paced page turner that Vregory read through gegory quickly. As long as you get the image of the movie out of your head, it good crime novel, well worth the read. Loved the movie since I first saw it, so I thought I’d finally read it.
I know it’s supposed to be a mystery, but there are jumps in logic to reach the conclusion. I assume this is to keep the final reveal fletcu the reader, so I mcconald it as such and just enjoyed the humor. As you read it, try not to compare it too much to Chevy Chase’s version.
The book version of Fletch is amoral, or at least puts aside his morality, to do what it takes to get the story right, even if it means putting his own life and health on the line.
