Good Reads: The Big Sleep (or Le Grand Sommeil as Guillaume would call it)

The Big Sleep (Penguin Fiction) The Big Sleep by Raymond Chandler

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
There’s a very reasonable chance that any page of this book is better than the book you’re currently reading. Genius.

So way only 4 stars instead of 5, you may ask? As I get older I’m less sure than I was that books can transcend the limitations of their genre. Crime is a great genre and this is a great book but it ain’t Updike.

Discuss.
