Book Review #1446 The Big Sleep by Raymond Chandler
Book Review #1446
The Big Sleep by Raymond Chandler
Rating: zero stars (out of four)
I read this for one of my grad school writing classes about category fiction. I found it really hard to get into the story. It definitely had that noir style, but I was not impressed with the way Chandler handled the characters or the setting. I also thought the plot was somewhat disjointed in that the main conflict simply resolved in the middle of the book and they went to something else. I never got a distinct feel for any of the characters and the plot didn't carry the slack. Not something I'd recommend.
