Still need to read that Sleeping Beauties book King wrote with his son (not Joe Hill, the other one).

Read through this one.

On the last chapter of this one, and likely to finish today.

Shoe, you were right. These were as good as I remember (though I read them so long ago that I don't remember much except liking them). The same sort of stagey dialogue that doesn't work for me in the Westmark books seems perfectly at home in the more fantastical setting here. I'm probably going to finish this series before going back to the other.

Finished the series (except for the companion volume of short stories). Loved them.

Thoughts? The Philip Marlowe books are some of my favorites, with The Long Goodbye being #1.

It was very good, although, like the film, I lost the thread of the plot at some point midway through until Marlowe's summation at the end kind of made it make sense. I'll have to read more of Chandler's work.

I remember reading at some point that Chandler admitted he lost the plot about midway through. The plot isn't the point.

I kind of like the Bogart/Bacall banter that was added for the film, but the bleaker ending is better for the book.
