The Thin Man
The Thin Man - Dashiell Hammett

Um, I´m thinking my liver is pickled after reading this book.  They all drank so much.  If they took out every mention of getting a drink they wouldn´t have enough pages left to make a book.  

 

Anyway, I found this book kinda dull, that family was so crazy and I figured out what was up with the ¨thin man¨ too early.  blah.  I need a drink.

I never liked Owen and I hate him now. He is no better than Ryan where it comes to manipulating Will.

I really wanted to strangle Owen in this one, even more than Tony. 

And Will, but not so much, maybe a little ;) ...cause he's too cute for words.

More banter, and I'd have been set
The Thin Man - Dashiell Hammett

In a stark time-marches-on fashion, this one is very much a politically incorrect book all around. Since I don't mind that, I was enjoying it, but at some point around a third in, Nora stopped participating in dialogues and got relegated to audience surrogate, and I wasn't having as much fun.

 

I don't know that I was invested much in the mystery

I figured Wynant had to be dead, and someone was impersonating him for money. His not showing up anywhere was obvious pretty early.

(spoiler show)

but I have to confess I stayed for the train-wreck the characters are. As a rule, I avoid noir because it relies too much on drudgery, dialogue error and backtrack, and it bores me. Here, everyone is so messed up or downright insane I could get my jollies from their hijinks (sometimes horror inducing ones), and I coasted the whole book on this amused sense that I was reading a cast of grotesques caricatures.

 

Call me morbid, I had fun.
