    1. This book was recommended to me by someone who worked in the publishing industry, what's more, they liked my book, so I was pretty sure they had excellent taste. I bought it almost immediately, and was excited to give it a try. That was almost exactly nine years ago. (This might give you a dim glimmer as to what my to-read shelf is like.)A couple days ago, I was in-between books and looking over my shelves for something I could read before going to bed. I didn't want to start up another Pratchet [...]

    2. Stephen King said about novelist Jim Thompson: “He was crazy. He went running into the American subconscious with a blowtorch in one hand and a pistol in the other, screaming his goddamn head off. No one else came close.”I thought I would love this book, and I did somewhat. I feel kinda dirty after reading it though. Deputy Sheriff Lou Ford is wellhe is a fucker. He hides in plain sight. That calm deputy that draws no attention to himself, but deep inside his monster's lurk.Told from the fir [...]

    3. Ever meet someone at a party and think they're pretty cool until they let something slip and you realize they may in fact be bat-shit psycho? That's how Lou Ford, the protagonist of The Killer Inside Me is. I also suspect that Jim Thompson may have been that way as well.The Killer Inside Me is the story of Lou Ford, a small town sheriff who's a little slow and a little boring. Or he would have you believe. Lou Ford spends most of his time keeping the sickness inside him in check. Lou's a sociopa [...]

    4. First of all, a warning: if you happen to pick up the edition I did that includes an introductory essay from Stephen King, make sure you read it after you finish the book. Goddamn it, either the entire principal of *spoiler* completely flies over this man's head, or he just loves being a bastard about these things. After 2014's Twitter controversy where he spoiled a major death for fans of HBO's Game of Thrones series, I'm pretty certain it's the latter. It's not that he doesn't get it -- he jus [...]

    5. HOWDY FOLKS…MY NAME IS LOU FORD AND I’M A MILD-MANNERED, DEPUTY SHERIFF IN A SMALL TEXAS TOWNOH BTWI’M ALSO A SADISTIC, DEEPLY DISTURBED, PSYCHOPATHIC KILLERCE TO MEET YOU!!5.0 stars. A “one of a kind” reading experience that I can not recommend more highly for fans of noir crime fiction or psychological thrillers. Told in the first person by Lou Ford, who to all outward appearances is a thoughtful, considerate (if somewhat slow) Deputy Sheriff of Capital City, Texas, population 50,000 [...]

    6. I went into this with high expectations. I mean, who doesn't love a good psychopath? Especially one with a boat-load of issues who is in a position of authority and trust. Enter Lou Ford, small town sheriff and all-round good guy or so his sweet and slightly slow disposition would have you think. But Lou has the sickness. Most of the time he manages to keep it hidden beneath a cheery and easy-going attitude, most of the time you would assume he is just your average Joe. Until every once in a whi [...]

    7. Ο Τόμσον είναι μια από αυτές τις όμορφες περιπτώσεις της λογοτεχνίας. Από όσο έχω καταλάβει, το έργο του τοποθετείται στην λογοτεχνία του αστυνομικού, με τάσεις να το τραβάνε προς το νουάρ. Ίσως έχει να κάνει με το έγκλημα ως βασικό στοιχείο των ιστοριών του, την παραβατικότ [...]

    8. The Killer Inside Me: Jim Thompson's classic Roman Noir“Just as there are physical monsters, can there not be mental or psychic monsters born? The face and body may be perfect, but if a twisted gene or malformed egg can produce physical monsters, may not the same process produce a malformed soul? Monsters are variations from the accepted normal to a greater or a less degree. As a child may be born without an arm, so one may be born without kindness or the potential of conscience. A man who los [...]

    9. Jim Thompson must have had noir in his veins instead of red blood cells. This dark first-person story has the reader inhabiting the mind of a killer in way that most authors can't even come close to matching. It's disturbing, chilling and one of the best pieces of crime fiction I’ve ever read.Lou Ford is a small-town sheriff’s deputy in West Texas. He appears to be just a good natured, not-to-bright, good-ole-boy who usually speaks in a series of clichés to the point of annoying or boring w [...]

    10. "It's always lightest just before the dark"This is one terrific tale, though nasty as all get out. Thompson seems to have serious Mommy issues, as all his women, be they whores or schoolmarms, are shrewish harpies. AND, he seems to believe that a good beating is the only foreplay a woman should ever need.He is not alone in his cringe-worthy treatment of the ladies. It seems to be a common problem that has bugged the hell out of me in other books of this ilk and is probably the main reason I don' [...]

    11. Δεν είναι τυχαίο που ο Κιούμπρικ θεωρούσε τον συγκεκριμένο συγγραφέα μεγαλοφυΐα Το βιβλίο σε μεταφέρει στις ΗΠΑ του 1952, σε μια noir ατμόσφαιρα που όλα είναι πιθανά>Ολόκληρη η κριτική στην Λέσχη του Βιβλίου: λέσχη/forum/showthread.

    12. This was a humdinger of a story written through the eyes of a sheriff Lou Ford of a small, middle-of-nowhere west Texas town of Central City. Is he an easy-going, well-liked man and a respected citizen of the town, well known for his quiet, gentle nature? On the inside he has a dark-side he is a sociopathic killer who seems to think that life is ruled by any means necessary, full of both corny, small-town bonhomie and murderous psychosexual rage. He will not hesitate to eliminate his loved ones [...]

    13. Αναρωτιέμαι αν μου άρεσε τόσο πολύ,επειδή ο Thompson γράφει απίστευτα ή επειδή είναι καλοκαίρι που κάνω μια στροφή στα αστυνομικά και τ’ απολαμβάνω. Εντάξει,δεν τίθεται θέμα,η γραφή του συγγραφέα είναι αυτή που σε τραβάει.Αυτό που με έκανε ν’ ανατριχιάσω είναι ότι επέλεξε την [...]

    14. When Boris Vian hoaxed his way into the roman noir scene in 1958 with ‘I spit on your graves’, he was giving Jim Thompson a nod.This book is riveting. It springs on the back of Chandler and Hammet who were by then moulding the no-nonsense, cynical, take no prisoner ‘Has- Been’ into limelight situations, but whereas these pioneer anti-heroes seem to preserve a modicum of decency, their successors, guided by the likes of Patricia Highsmith, Vian and Thompson seem to surgically remove that [...]

    15. I had not before this read any work by Jim Thompson, though I knew his reputation as a dark and grisly noir novelist from the mid- twentieth century. I had seen The Grifters (which I loved), but never read the book on which it was based (but now will!). I had recently read a comics adaptation of The Killer Inside, and liked it, so committed to reading the original, which I really did basically love. Well, “love” is perhaps a simplistic stretch of an assessment for my experience of a serial k [...]

    16. I've read what some may consider to be a creepy number of non-fiction books on sociopathy (The Sociopath Next Door, Snakes in Suits: When Psychopaths Go to Work, The Mask of Sanity). All of them attempt to offer insight into the heads of these individuals among us who exist without conscience, and adeptly "play human." Many of them (especially The Gift of Fear: Survival Signals That Protect Us from Violence by Gavin de Becker - which rumor has it Oprah recommended) try to aid the average, non-so [...]

    17. The threat of violence in the small Texas town profiled in Jim Thompson’s The Killer Inside Me is so low that the patrolling sheriff, Lou Ford, doesn't even need to carry a gun. Lou doesn't worry because hell, who’s more dangerous in Central City than good ol’ Lou himself? While he speaks in clichés and exudes a friendly demeanour, Lou’s true nature exists behind this social mask; a chilling homicidal maniac who could kill at any moment.This was my first Jim Thompson and although the br [...]

    18. This was my orginal thoughts with which I was never satisfied:Until I saw this my gut feeling was that it would be impossible to take Jim Thompson to the screen, but I stand corrected. Fabulous movie which precisely captures the spirit of Thompson’s writing. I first suggested seeing this to a male who refused on the grounds that ‘horrible things happened to women’ and they do, but I have no idea why this would be interpreted as being about ‘male hate’ ‘misogeny’. Like most people, [...]

    19. Possibly even better than Pop. 1280, but essentially it's the same conceit - first person, unreliable narrator, manipulating his readers in to feeling sorry for him whilst going about his immoral business, in this case lots of cold blooded murder.Fascinating and dark, Thompson grabs you with his tale of good ol' boy Lou Ford and you don't want to be let go, even when the house is burning up around you. Ford is more intelligent than everyone around him, but he has a dark secret in his past and a [...]

    20. DOPPIO IN GIOCOKubrick definì questo romanzo The most chilling and believable first-person story of a criminally warped mind I have ever encountered. Credo che Kubrick di menti deformate e criminali, e criminali dalla mente deformata, se ne intendeva un pochino. Con Thompson, Kubrick scrisse uno dei suoi primi capolavori, ‘Orizzonti di gloria’, dove il male esiste, proprio come nelle opere di Thompson.Jim Thompson con Sterling Hayden sul set di the Killing di Stanley Kubrick. Per questo mag [...]

    21. The Killer Inside Me is one of those novels that needs no introduction at all -- it is and will always be a classic of American noir fiction, it's been made into two movies (1976 and 2010), and chances are that if you haven't read the novel you've at least seen the film. Or, if you're really fainthearted, you've experienced neither, since both book and movie are dark, disturbing, and well past the point of unsettling. It's also one of those books that has been studied left and right, inside and [...]

    22. 'The Killer Inside Me' by Jim Thompson This is my first experience of a Jim Thompson novel & if this is typical of his work, it won't be my last.I first came across Thompson whilst reading an introduction in one of Richard Stark's novels, who Stark cites as one of his influences & if you've read any of the 'Parker' novels you will notice a similar style to Thompson.Thompson himself admired Fyodor Dostoyevsky & critic/author Geoffrey O'Bren called Thompson the '"Dime-store Dostoyevsky [...]

    23. This is a slightly tricky book to rate and review. I want to give at least a minor warning as I think some readers will find the book to some extent disturbing. that said it's considered a classic of it's type and I can see why. The writing could be called masterful.This novel was written in 1952. Other than a few terms that are obsolete the story holds up well and in no way really feels dated. I mean yeah we have older cars, limited phone availability and a '50s society but it doesn't "jump out [...]

    24. Jim Thompson worked on oil rigs in his youth. It's filthy, dangerous, deeply hair-raising work, all to get at something that's as precious as it is polluted. Reading his novels is surprisingly similar. His whiskey-soaked misogyny will make your skin crawl, but his ability to plumb the darkest corners of the human soul, with both skill and sympathy, is unmatched in literature.This is the best Thompson book I've read by far, and one of the best books I've ever read for sheer narrative skill. His p [...]

    25. The Killer Inside Me is unlike any other book I've read. Published in 1952, it's a pulpy crime noir novel with a twist. The protagonist is no hard boiled detective hot on the trail of a killer, but rather the killer himself. Lou Ford is the Deputy Sheriff of a small town in Texas, and he's also a sociopathic murderer. And the reader gets to be inside his head for 229 pages. That's a very uncomfortable place to be. (Mild spoilers ahead, so if you want to go into this book knowing very little, sto [...]

    26. Did not get this at all. This sounded like my kind of thing, and with favourable reviews from Stanley Kubrick and Stephen King illuminating the front and back of the book, I figured that this would be right up my alley. But I was wrong. I was really disappointed. There are a few scenes here that would have been shocking back in the day, no doubt. But they just don't quite live up to it today. However, I do appreciate that aspect of the book. What I did not appreciate was Jim Thompson's style of [...]

    27. Jim Thompson’s The Killer Inside Me is terrifying because, in the mind of a sociopath murderer, we (I know it’s not just me!) can see some of ourselves.The novel is told from the perspective of Lou Ford, a small town Texas deputy who seems harmless and trustworthy but knows his own demons well enough to know he’s anything but a community pillar. Ford’s mind and emotions veer from cold and calculating to viciously angry to desperate and full of need but remain under his control because Fo [...]

    28. So far I hate Jim Thompson a lot more than I remembered. Not sure I'll make it through this one. Kind of a weird chaser right after the Proust.****Okay, so Jim Thompson writes like a demented fourth-grader who's being raised in a pretty rough whorehouse. This isn't my favorite style, but that doesn't mean I didn't get sucked in. The only other book I remember reading about West Texas is the Lyndon Johnson biography, which made this one fun because I got to picture the cliche-spouting, cigar-chom [...]

    29. This book is everything I read and heard it was. And it scared the crap out of me and I wasn't there except of course, in my mind. Since it was written in the first person, I wondered if Jim Thompson was killer in real life? Sparse (just like I love), storyline excellent and the ending was not only a surprise but came out of nowhere. Amazing book for those of us who do not read romance and stuff.

    30. A very dark book, decades ahead of its time (written in 1952.) Lou Ford, a local cop, appears to be a bland, get-along-with-all kind of guy, but is a screaming sociopath. Written in a first person narrative, the novel paints a solid picture of a West Texan town, dominated by oil and its primary profiteer; however, Thompson fails to explain Lou's sickness. Maybe that was the entire point, and was lost on me?
