That was so good! The way it was written was just so good! I loved it. It was also incredibly sad.. I hope you write more about Him and Irene!

Very well-written! I liked it a lot.
You captured Driver and his feelings and character perfectly. I liked your chosen design, too.

I loved it, I definitely think you got Driver's persona right on the spot. But the ending was so sad! Nearly brought me to tears! Well, great story!

Excellent writing and story. This is definitely go to help tide me over until Sallis puts out the sequel to the book.

My only real nitpick is that doesn't even take a full day to get From L.A. to New Mexico and even less to get to anywhere in Arizona. So two days almost non-stop seems off to me.

Good golly this is fantastic. The previous reviewer pretty much summed up all of the great points of this fic. I personally find this piece flawless.

I really love this movie and can't get enough of it, and this fic let me relive it a little, stay with Driver a little longer. Thanks. :]

This is an interesting little piece. I liked the synchronicity of it, with Driver landing himself in the same job with different setting, living practically the same life he had at the beginning of the film. It bookends it quite nicely.

The stream of consciousness style of writing goes well with the character, as does the lack of punctuation. It's very lucid and effective. The character is also written well, a Driver who drives and doesn't do much else - it's not the most interesting set of parameters but your version of Driver works well within them.

The idea of him visiting Irene and never actually letting her see him fits well - you didn't fall into the trap of making this too fluffy, with romantic declarations and such the like; a trap of a lot of people around these parts seem to fall into.

My main criticism of your work is that at times your sentences run on just a little too long, in my opinion. Whilst this may be a conscious decision with regards to the style of the prose, in two instances it carries on to such a length it becomes almost overwhelming for the reader; these two instances being the sentences starting: "He will see a young mother..." and "In the cinema print...".

Aside from that, there's little to criticise. The pacing is excellent and you've well judged the size of your numerical sections.

Overall I really liked this, and admire your restraint as well as your 'in the moment' descriptions (I'm not sure if you've ever read the book, but in the first few lines Driver is described as a man who "is, as they say, in the moment".) Good job!
