The Thin Man is a sort of noir novel by one of the greats of noir crime history Dashiell Hammett who is best known for creating Sam Spade in The Maltese Falcon But The Thin Man was also a well known and much read series and maybe still is This one features the lush drinking duo Nick and Nora Charles and opens very much like a screwball comedy The movie version is a classic and maybe better than the book in some ways Nora How do you feel Nick Terrible I must ve gone to bed sober Hammett is most famous for being just so damned clever and especially with dialogue He keeps the jokes coming and it is entertaining Now if you like your noir truly scary and brutal read Jim Thompson or Richard Stark s Parker series No laughs but lots of terrific writing And better stories This one is light hearted and he doesn t really care much about the story so I am not even going to talk much about it The novel could be plotted in this way Part One Nick and Nora drink heavily and tell jokes about how Nick got out of the detective business to marry rich Nora and so onPart two They solve a crime featuring the dizzy blond are there ever dizzy brunettes Sure but the blonds are the ones that have the most fun apparently She sets the standard for a beautiful babe who is a chronic liar throughout I already can hardly remember what happens or how they solve it but there is some brutality since it is noir but Part Three Nick and Nora begin drinking like a fish as they say againReminded me of the days when loveable drunks were a regular feature in literature and tv such as Crazy Guggenheim on Red Skelton Dudley Moore in 10 Hammett is a terrific writer of dialogueA clip from the movie which I recommend to read after the bookhttpswwwyoutubecomwatchvbSThE45 stars 5 for creating the screwball detective duo Nick and Nora and the goofy girl and the dialogue and 2 stars for the story which is sort of not what Hammett seemed to care about here Ah give me a drink I had fun

We didn t come to New York to stay sober The Thin Man is best read with a drink in hand Do you have a drink Do you need a refresher Would you like another Above all else it is important that you be drinkingSeriouslyDRINK My god a lot of alcohol is consumed in this book It reads as if Ernest Hemingway had taken up crime noir In The Thin Man Nick Charles private detective has hung up his hat Nora his wife kinda wishes he hadn t She likes wrapping her head around a good mystery Well a good one comes along in the form of murder for money and Charles old friends are all wrapped up in it The plot unfolds essentially in three places at the Charles at their friends and at a speakeasyeach place being as well stocked with liuor as the next Other than drinking they don t do much of anything And they don t really go anywhere unless it s someplace to drink They hang around and tie one on while they try to figure out whodunnit The writing is solid the plot feels sound the characters are a little dramatic don t get me started on the women these dames is batty but once all that s in motion the book as a whole feels static And then Hammett pulled a MelvilleAt least Herman Melville was writing a novel about whales when he inserted that non fiction book sized treatise on the whale species Yes it took the reader right out of the story for a damn long time but subjects were related Hammett goes into great detail in a long passage on the Packer cannibal case of 1873 74 Was it necessary Intrinsic to the plot Or was it tossed in for its shock value A bit of sensationalism to spice up a book that was getting a tad boring Either way the aside is overlong by a LONG SHOTDashiell Hammett author of The Maltese Falcon pretty much invented this genre so perhaps I should lay off But I m not always one to treat revered things precious likejust the stuff that s precious to meso I m docking this a star for Hammett s ol slight of hand writer s trick Otherwise it s not a bad little book
