Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dave | 7/10/2011

    " The greatest crime novel period. There's a very good reason why Time Magazine named Red Harvest one of the 50 greatest novels of the 20th century. if you haven't read this, you need to! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Benoit | 6/26/2011

    " It's scary good. Makes you think about the ideals of peace that mankind keeps up. It often means that control and coercion will be applied. Hammett had a gift to show us the worst in humans. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sharon | 6/25/2011

    " I read this book with a group that was reading crime fiction. this book had a wonderful noir style, and as I recall did not have a typical neatly tied up, solve the mystery ending. I would highly recommend it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Charity | 6/1/2011

    " Eh, started out strong (first 49 pages or so) but quickly fizzled and felt like it got muddied up. Held very little of the charm that Chandler has. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Josh | 5/4/2011

    " supposedly a classic of the genre, but I found it non-compelling. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hirosasazaki | 4/23/2011

    " It's nice. I'm awkward to tell this but this is old fashion now. So is most of Classic novel because many people borrowed again and again. Ellroy said he was influenced by Hammett. Now I see why. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ryan | 4/22/2011

    " The quintessential hard-boiled detective novel. It's no surprise that Hammett essentially created the genre; this book contains everything that you would hope to see in the work of his countless imitators. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 William | 3/31/2011

    " Hammett's nameless detective piles on the bodies like he's building a wall of them. A crackerjack classic in the "one man plays all the bad guys against each other" genre. Short, too. So you can read it in a couple evenings or an afternoon. "
