Farewell, My Lovely

by Raymond Chandler

This is the second Phillip Marlowe novel--a classic mid-century detective tale with tough talking, hard drinking and people getting slugged a lot. The story was okey--I suspected the murderer about halfway in and the dialogue was a bit obtuse at times. What I really enjoyed about the book was the setting and atmosphere. Throughout the book I was envisioning 1940s Los Angeles. Of course, my mental images were an amalgamation of Perry Mason and Who Framed Roger Rabbit. I've been lax in watching classic movies.
