book: The Thin Man

Dashiell Hammett. The Thin Man. Vintage, 1992 (originally published 1933). 201 pages.

A very entertaining whodunit. Hammett manages to make his characters lovable and fun, even though most of them would be awful people in real life. It consists mostly of snappy dialog, and almost reads more like a screenplay than a novel, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing.

9/10 (One of my favorites).
