By the time Bob Jr. got back to the courthouse, U-turning north again and pulling up in the no parking zone, he figured they’d be just about now giving Ryan his shoelaces and telling him to take off.

The Big Bounce was an early (1969) crime novel for which Elmore Leonard had trouble finding a publisher. It isn't Leonard's best novel, but it is still an entertaining book that would make a great read for the beach or a lazy Sunday afternoon. The plot concerns an ex-baseball player named Jack Ryan who ends up working at a resort in Michigan's "thumb" region. Ryan meets a femme fatale named Nancy who is an excitement addict - she gets a "bounce" each time she breaks a rule. Of course, Nancy is a beauty - readers learn that she was once voted "Miss Perky.

The Big Bounce is a crime novel written by Elmore Leonard, who started offering the story to publishers and film producers in the fall of 1966. However, no one would take it. It went unpublished until 1969, when it was adapted into a film version in 1969, directed by Alex March and scripted by Robert Dozier, with actor Ryan O'Neal in the lead role.

He would tell what was wrong with the DSR, how they didn’t have enough buses and how the jigs were getting all the good runs because the big shots were afraid of the racial situation. Later, when Ryan was working with Leon Woody, he wondered what his dad would have thought of it. He wondered if he would have started breaking into houses if his dad hadn’t died.

Leonard, Elmore - Jack Ryan 01. Jack Ryan always wanted to play pro ball. But he couldn't hit a curveball, so he turned his attention to less legal pursuits. But he couldn't hit a curveball, so he turned his attention to less legal pursuits - and more - in Nancy. She's a rich man's plaything, seriously into thrills and risk, and together she and Jack are pure heat ready to explode. But when simple housebreaking and burglary give way to the deadly pursuit of a really big score, the stakes suddenly skyrocket

Author: Elmore Leonard. PLAYMATE OF THE DAYJack Ryan has a man’s fists, a boy’s mind, and the cunning of an ex-con.

Author: Elmore Leonard. Nancy Hayes has a woman’s sleek moves and the instincts of a shark. Now, in a Michigan resort town, a rich man wants Jack gone and Nancy for himself. For Ryan the choice is clear: Nancy’s promises of pleasure, her crazy, thrill-seeking schemes of breaking into homes, shooting guns, and maybe stealing a whole lot of money are driving him half mad.

Looking for the bounce, like everybody else. Ever since in the town in Oklahoma talking the gas station man into letting them use his stinking broken-down washroom, thinking he was a big shot because he did it. Why Ray Ritchie-a guy twenty years older than you are? Twenty-five, Charlie. Ever since he started talking to Marlene Desea and before they were out of Missouri had got her to leave the panel truck and ride in the bus with him.

This book, the first of Leonard's Jack Ryan books, was a totally different style from those I had read by him before. It focused on the character of Jack Ryan, an ex baseball player and petty thief, who gets a job working at a lakeside resort. He gets into a relationship with the mistress of a married businessman and joins her in pranks that include breaking windows and breaking into houses. Eventually the story builds to her shooting another man while Ryan seemingly helps her to cover up the event. The book ends abruptly as the police are closing in at the end.

I enjoyed the storytelling style of this book. I was a bit surprised by where he chose to end the story. It seemed like a bit more of a resolution was called for.

This was my first Elmore Leonard novel. I like Leonard's style and the way he writes dialogue. But the plot in this book felt kind of boring. I wouldn't call it a love story or a story about a heist. To me it's just a gathering of colorful and complex characters with no actual plot. Jack is a career crook and Nancy is a total cooc. There's not enough you get from Mr. Majestyk and the minor characters are interested to, but for the story just didn't really go anywhere. I guess this book is fun to have in your collection if you're a fan, but probably not the one the start with.

The Big Bounce was an early (1969) crime novel for which Elmore Leonard had trouble finding a publisher. It isn't Leonard's best novel, but it is still an entertaining book that would make a great read for the beach or a lazy Sunday afternoon.

The plot concerns an ex-baseball player named Jack Ryan who ends up working at a resort in Michigan's "thumb" region. Ryan meets a femme fatale named Nancy who is an excitement addict - she gets a "bounce" each time she breaks a rule. Of course, Nancy is a beauty - readers learn that she was once voted "Miss Perky Pickle" - haha. When Jack meets her, Nancy is the kept woman of a wealthy man from whom she plans to steal $50,000 cash - with Jack's help.

Though the novel is an early effort from Leonard, it has his typical strengths. There are several vivid characters to keep the reader interested. Also, Leonard makes the setting come alive. Finally, there is enough action to keep the book from bogging down - I found that the 300+ pages turned easily.

While I like the Big Bounce, there are some negatives. Readers may feel disappointed in the way that Leonard ends the novel. He seems to have everything set up for a great conclusion, but the ending is mediocre - at best. Also, Nancy is extremely unlikeable. In later novels, Leonard greatly improved the depth and realism of his female characters.

I am surprised by the negative reviews on Amazon.com. The Big Bounce is not perfect, but it is a solid, readable crime novel. Leonard's fan should read it.
Zorve
Elmore Leonard's writing sets the Gold Standard for noir fiction. He treats words like fine-cut jewels and never wastes a single one on unnecessary ornamentation. He is so disciplined in following his own rules ("Kill All Modifiers") and his ear for dialogue is so true that opening one of his stories is like moving into a new neighborhood for a few hours. Like a great actor who can deliver a whole speech with an eyebrow lift, Leonard can package a character in less material than it would take to stop the bleeding from a razor nick. I've rediscovered him, only to realize that I had no idea how large his oeuvre is, or how deep and rich. Every one is different, and every one is captivating. If you want to learn how to write anything well, read Leonard, and take notes. You'll be at the knee of the master.
Dorilune
Solid enough quick read about a couple of bums who get involved in small-time lawbreaking. Leonard doesn't screw around as usual, sketching everyone quickly and efficiently. The Virginia Murray subplot was a bit of a headscratcher. While she was a breath of fresh air opposite the crooks the reader follows otherwise, it wasn't really a burden to check in with her, but I didn't quite get what she ultimately added to the story.
Pemand
I am an avid Elmore Leonard fan. While this book is dated, the basic premise of the story had all the traditional earmarks of a Leonard novel.
Once the book begins hitting the climax, the book takes a totally different direction. The main storyline is aborted.
I was listening to an unabridged audio version of this book. I returned the book to Amazon since I thought I had an incomplete book. The book ended on the 5th tape with no warning that it was complete. A sixth tape was added which started with an Elmore Leonard short story that was included in a previous book.
Don't waste your time with this book.

Sorry Leonard but the 'Big Bounce' is in need of a few more pounds of air. Not quite flat but doesn't jump off the page as we're accustomed to with this author. Although his b efforts are better than most. Jack and the lady make quite a pair. It's obvious that she's playing him and the question remains as to whether he'll survive the relationship or not. I'm not telling but I wil say that the girl makes a heck of a villian. Her unpredictable behavior will hook the reader and you'll have somebody to root against. Naturally, the hero is typical Leonard, hard luck guy operating on the fringes of the law. I suppose that in the presence of evil, you need good and Jack fills the role. No model citizen, mind you but he would stop to change someone's flat tire. I might have enjoyed the story more if it hadn't of felt so dated. Normally this isn't a deal breaker for me but in this case, the story just felt tired. Even with this being the case, there's worse things than reading this book on a lazy afternoon.
I turned the page and it was over...so sorry. Great characters, plot, and subplots and the denouement was left to me.
