mission: I'm going to read 50 books in a year? Yep.
strategy: For January, not read anything too challenging.
book: The Long Goodbye by: Raymond Chandler
why?: Raymond Chandler is one of the 1950's best pulp writers, period.
length: 379 pages. I read this one in book form. Not with a Kindle.
5 second book report: Detective Phillip Marlowe (Chandler's reoccurring main character) makes friends with a scarred up, out of luck drunk who's married to a wealthy nymphomaniac. Throughout the story, there are people on the lam, guns, double crosses, switchblades, murders etc. Last year I read Chandler's The Big Sleep and it was a bit better but this one was a fun twisty and turny read. Recommend if you like pulp potboilers.
book score: 3rd book read out of 50.
