    " This book was even better the second time... I suspect that all Chandler's books are. "

    " I like Raymond Chandler. He gets five stars from me just because he is so damn good. I also have, kept in a handy place, a collection of his correspondence. Most of his letters are only a page or two and this is a book that, wherever it falls open, you will be entertained. Currently I am working hard and furious to get a thriller of my own proofed, polished, and on to your bookshelf. When I'm struggling, trying to fix something, trying to get it just right, Chandler is one of the authors I turn to for examples of "just right." "

    " Mmmmmmmmm - I liked the first chapter, Carmen is scary - and some other bits. The phrases are a bit irritating: 'her mouth looked like the prelude to a scream' that sort of thing. On the other hand there are some good wise cracks; I think that is what you call them. But then crime fiction is not supposed to be well-written. Anyway Raymond Chandler does care. In his essay entitled 'The gentle Art of Murder' he says that fictional writing is about redemption. I rather like that.... "

    " You can find actual reviews elsewhere, so I'll just say that I gave it five stars not because it's best in genre, but because it's most iconic in genre, the same way I'd give Star Wars five stars even though you can see the strings on the X-Wings. "
