Captains Outrageous book. Hap doesn’t understand Leonard’s sexual activities and Leonard feels the same about Hap’s attraction to a woman’s parts

Captains Outrageous book. This was the last Hap and Leonard novel that Lansdale wrote for 8 years until the publication of Vanilla Ride, and it feels like he may have been a bit burnt out on the series. While there’s always been a bit of a melancholy tone to the H&L books, this one has several elements that are more depressing that the other ones. Hap doesn’t understand Leonard’s sexual activities and Leonard feels the same about Hap’s attraction to a woman’s parts. A big tit don’t really do you any good.

Praise for Joe R. Lansdale’s Hap and Leonard series. Hap and Leonard function as a sort of Holmes and Watson-if Holmes and Watson had had more lusty appetites and less refined educations and spent their lives in East Texas.

In a lot of ways, it's weird that the humor of the Hap and Leonard books is something I always find myself focusing on when I talk about them. After all, these are truly noir novels in every sense of the word; Captains Outrageous opens with Hap saving a woman from a brutal and horrific beating, and from there somehow evolves until our heroes are in Mexico dealing with a horrifically violent drug lord and his gargantuan henchman. It all more or less makes sense as it goes, but there's little funny about the story, which revolves around horrific and nightmarish acts of violence that scar the characters both physically and mentally, and not in a way that leaves them quick to heal. And yet, for all of that, I can't deny that when I think of the Hap and Leonard books, and when I think about my reaction to Captains Outrageous, I think first of how laugh out loud, constantly hilarious these books are. In the hands of Joe Lansdale, Hap and Leonard constantly bicker, joke, tease, and comment on the world around them, but in a way that never feels forced or feels like some bad sitcom. Instead, it feels like a bond between two old friends who love each other dearly and always have each other's backs, no matter what. And that bond between Hap and Leonard, ultimately, is the core of the books, driving the plot, driving the violence that scars the characters, driving the healing they go through, and driving the choices they make along the way. In other words, the series blends Lansdale's wonderful Texas drawl, brutal neo-noir, and character work to make something rich, funny, exciting, thrilling, and just plain great. And Captains Outrageous is among the best of the series, sliding through its story effortlessly, bringing out some hilarious moments, and making the violence and horror truly resonate and linger both with the characters and the reader. In other words? It's pure Lansdale, and it's hard to imagine much that could be better than that.

When a book begins with a security guard at a chicken processing plant rescuing his employer's daughter from a near fatal beating, takes you to the world's worst cruise ship and ends up dealing with the Mexican mafia, you can be sure of only one thing: Must be another installment in Joe Lansdale's Hap and Leonard series.
Hap Collins is rewarded for saving the young girl's life, and he and his best friend Leonard (foolishly)decide to take a cruise. Hap & Leonard aren't exactly the type to enjoy sitting aboard a ship, so before they even leave the dock, there's trouble. Not surprisingly, the two are left behind at the first port of call, and this is where "Captains Outrageous" begins its journey.
This novel is one of my favorites in the series, because Hap and Leonard's rapport is at its sharpest. These two guys exchange barbs with cops, gangsters and each other...and it is that chemistry that keeps H & L fans coming back for more.
Not only has Lansdale created some great characters, Joe Lansdale can WRITE. His descriptive phrasing and his blend of serious situations with dark humor are some of the best I've read in contemporary literature.
As always, I warn readers: this book isn't for everyone. Violence, sexual situations and 'tasteless humor' saturates "Captains Outrageous"...but then again, it's the reason Hap and Leonard fans love 'em.

There's a bit of guilty pleasure in reading Joe Lansdale's Hap and Leonard - a curious blend of cynical humor and improbably zany predicaments as the odd couple from east Texas engages in another episode of righteous crusades and sordid violence. But what really holds this venerable series and its whacky pair together is Lansdale's rapier dialog - cutting prose with country bred sensibility and barn yard color; vivid portraits of places inhabited "cockroaches big enough to work in an iron foundry," and with guys who "laugh at what amuses wolves" and can "disappear faster than sweat on an Eskimo's lip." Pick up any Hap and Leonard, thumb to any page, and as sure as "sex and chicken processing are two of life's great mysteries," you'll turn up another gem of Lansdale's offbeat wisdom.

"Captains Outrageous" is the 6th Hap and Leonard, and the last before a seven year hiatus ending with last year's "Vanilla Ride." Like "Rumble Tumble" before it, the violence and bloodshed movaround to the rendering wagon. Both Hap and Leonard are working security for the local chicken processing plant when Hap intervenes to save a teenage girl from a grisley death - barely - delivered by a drug-crazed assailant. Turns out the girl is the daughter of the factory's owner, who shows his gratitude by giving Hap $100,000 and some time off to enjoy it. Hap and Leonard decide on a Caribbean cruise, which predictably goes from bad to disaster, leaving the pair stranded in Mexico. From there it is your usual (for Lansdale) collection of a Mexican nudist gangster and his gargantuan assassin, machete-yielding cops and the "old man and the sea." As Hap and Leonard struggle to get back to Texas, Hap's pining for Brett, and the usual cast of Texans show up to lend a hand. But home is no respite and ... look, you get the idea. More of the same and deliciously so - another installment of pop crime's most unlikely heroes penned by one its cleverest and under-read authors. Fans of the series will not want to miss it, while for the uninitiated, while these all stand alone, going back to start with the brilliant "Savage Season" is a good bet.

I discovered Joe Lansdale last year through a suggestion by my local librarian. To be courteous, I checked out one of his books...AND LOVED IT!! Lansdale is not just a great story-teller, he is also a great humorist, witty, irreverant, and he creates characters with a genuine degree of complexity that you come to really care about. Hap and Leonard are two of my favorites. You owe yourself the favor of checking out Joe Lansdale...just once.I'm betting you'll return to him again and again. I'd give this book 5 stars, except then what rating could I give my very favorites of his? They're all fives, in my opinion, but some are 6s :)
