Ho, ho, Cadillac Jack," he said, waving. The car passed on, and I crossed the street a happier man. Life had just handed me a title; all I had to do was find a book for it.

Caddy jack as a book gives us a reading of what the depth of feeling is for a large number of people who pursue a live that relates to collection of unique things, to those who follow this lust as a means to make money and a few that tell the story. Every book by McMurtry makes me understand myself and others better.

Perhaps by chance, Jack and I were the same age when I first stumbled upon "Cadillac Jack" 33 years ago. I am still looking for treasures, desert cars, giant perfect pot belly stoves, and stuff; is Jack? Tireless romantics with a brain should enjoy, love, the book and hate it to end. But Jack is still out there if the Koreans didn't get him.

This is my second reading. McMurtry is one of my top five authors.
  • Viashal
Its McMurtry, or course it's good.

This is not one of McMurtry's best efforts. The characters were lacking interest and the plot was not compelling. This is one of McMurtry's books that was easy to put down and find something worthwhile to do.

Love Larry McMurtry's writing style. This is just a fun read, not too serious. Sometimes I just want to laugh. The characters are endearing, and their names crack me up.

This was the first McMurtry book that I have read and it was highly entertaining. I dabble in antiques and much of the book revolves around Cadillac Jacks hunt for treasures at shops, flea markets and auctions. However, while I travel around the country chasing antique bargains, Cadillac Jack chases antique bargains and not-so-old skirts. He is quite the ladies man with the libido of a twenty year old. The book is well written, often funny and an escape into a world that I am only partly familiar with. Enjoy!
Great wordmanship. Best author to paint characters around history. Especially 1800’s.
