The Big Sleep review

The Big Sleep - Raymond Chandler

Wonderful book! A little rougher than Farewell, My Lovely, which I'd read first, but that's OK because Marlowe's supposed to be tough, and here he shows both the grit and the smarts he is famous for. As always with Chandler, the most beautiful metaphors and descriptive prose you could want. Highly recommended.
