Farewell, My Lovely review

Farewell, My Lovely - Raymond Chandler

Excellent writing. Chandler had a gift for describing a scene and putting you right there, using very poetic language that was occasionally corny but still good except when it's great. I like how he's able to stretch a simple scene, like two guys driving down the street having a conversation, into a whole chapter in an entertaining way that dosen't bore me. I hope I can read all his books sooner or later.
