I enjoyed this book a great deal For years I have heard readers and literary pundits talk about how Chandler and Hammett are the grandfathers of mystery For me Chandler has always been the pinnacle and no one else comes close His turn of phrase and perception of life is unmatched I read Hammett s Red Harvest and thought eh Red Harvest was an okay book but not in the same league as Chandler With The Thin Man Hammett uses a different style than Red Harvest His prose is economic and he does a great job displaying character through dialogue which is what I prefer This book runs very uickly and reminded me so much of the movie I couldn t help but hear and see William Powell and Myrna Loy while reading this book Hammett moved way up on my list and I intend on reading all the Thin Man series and sample other Hammett booksDavid Putnam author of The Bruno Johnson Series

Free read The Thin Man Dashiell Hammett ´ 5 characters Free download The Thin Man æ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Antic The Thin Man is a murder mystery that doubles as a sophisticated comedy of manners. An inventor goes missing and his mistress winds up dead Former detective Nick Charles wants nothing to do with the case but keeps getting drawn in With his plucky wife Nora can Nick get things sorted out so he can get back to his drinkingThe Thin Man was not at all like I expected After reading the exploits of Sam Spade and the Continental Op I expected of the same The Thin Man is much humorous than Hammett s earlier works and I found myself liking it uite a bitNick Charles former detective is uite a character He s smart sharp witted and he likes the sauce He s such a raging alcoholic that Matthew Scudder and Nick Stefanos once staged an intervention for him BEFORE they got off the sauce Nick we like week long benders as much as the next guy but you might have a problem His wife Nora sticks by her man even if he probably smells like a distillery most of the time due to all the alcohol he consumes The one liners each of them fire off are infinitely interesting than the plot I m pretty sure the plot is only here for Nick and Nora to bounce lines around and give them something to do between drinksThe writing is top notch for the era as well As always once I forgave Hammett for not being Raymond Chandler it was off to the races uotable lines abound Nora How do you feel Nick Terrible I must ve gone to bed sober Nick Don t you think maybe a drink would help you to sleepNora No thanksNick Maybe it would if I took one The plot was suitably serpentine and the interplay between Nick and Nora kept me engaged throughout The rapid fire dialogue was by far my favorite part of the book Didn t Nick and Nora s dynamic in The Thin Man inspire JD Robb s In Death series It s a shame Hammett didn t write Nick and Nora books Four stars

Nick Charles used to work in a private detective agency got married later came into good money and took on a hard and thankless job of managing his investments The beginning of the book finds Nick and his wife Nora in New York It seemed they were drinking happily and heavily in a bar Later it turned out it was just a mild warm up routine for some very serious alcohol consumption We just woke up let s have a drink Having trouble sleeping double scotch is in order A guest came drinks for everybody A guest just finished his drink better finish mine and have another one Coming back from visiting a toilet celebration time If you are waiting for me to start giving an outline of a plot this is exactly what I do The book convinced me being rich is boring All you do is inviting guests to your place the same people mind you Being rich is also really bad for one s health and hopes of long life as no human liver can withstand this tsunami of strong alcohol consumed by Nick with occasional help from NoraDrink as he might Nick still ended up being mixed up in a murder case A secretary of an inventor he used to know was killed with inventor himself completely disappearing from the face of the Earth For some reason everybody and their brother decided Nick is the one to solve the mystery Nick certainly did not think so but after being shot at he decided to nudge the police into thoughtful investigation Between his drinks obviously People say in the classic movie based on this book the chemistry between the actors playing Nick and Nora totally carried it In the book however the chemistry is uite weak To be fair I found the ex wife of disappeared inventor and their children to be something out of this world all of them The rest of the characters served their roles but were nothing to write home about The book changed my views I used to think there are only two phases in lives of drunkards 1 Being drunk2 Suffering from a hangover Nick managed to be perpetually stuck in phase 1 I have not realized it was psychically possible Surely this is when pink elephants pay you a visitReal Life full of great irony Take my case less than a month ago I stated that I have yet to see a boring book written by Dashiell Hammett Now I have to eat my words as this one while not exactly boring but at least the weakest story from the father of noir mystery So the rating is 3 stars and now my life has a purpose I need to see the movie Let us drink to this Cheers Oops I think I caught something from Nick uickly somebody call AA and book me an appointment for their next meeting
