The Big Sleep

The Big Sleep Summary ´ 100 Work established Chandler as the master of the 'hard boiled' detective novel and his articulate and literary style of writing won him a large audience which ranged from the man in the street to the most sophisticated intellectua. Reflections on The Big Sleep Classic hard boiled detective fiction at it s finest Every stereotype every cliched phrase it s all there and it is glorious If you are looking for dames and gumshoes and sawbucks and swapping lead then look no further Almost every page had a uotable line that had me smirking This book is set in a different time If you do not remember this you may be upset or offended by the content These characters are uncouth and indelicate Several times during the book I said to myself Dang he can t say that But he did and that s just how it was It s a bit convoluted I am not going to lie several times during the book I was not uite sure what was going on or where things were going I am not even sure I fully understand the resolution I reflect on this as a genre period peice and I enjoyed it for that not necessarily a mind blowing plot Do I recommend this book Really only if you want to add some classic hard boiled to your collection If you only think you should read it because it is considered a must read classic I am not sure you will enjoy it all that much

The Big Sleep Summary ´ 100 Down these mean streets a man must go who is not himself mean who is neither tarnished nor afraidHe is the hero; he is everything He must be a complete man and a common man and yet an unusual man This is the Code of the Private E. Review updated again on September 17 2019 It was about eleven o clock in the morning mid October with the sun not shining and a look of hard wet rain in the clearness of the foothills I was wearing my powder blue suit with dark blue shirt tie and display handkerchief black brogues black wool socks with dark little clocks on them I was neat clean shaved and sober and I didn t care who knew it I was everything the well dressed private detective ought to be I was calling on four million dollars I uoted the whole first paragraph to show that both Philip Marlowe and his creator Raymond Chandler have style Plenty of style The whole series oozes it It became its major defining point One uote to drive the point home Neither of the two people in the room paid any attention to the way I came in although only one of them was dead A crippled millionaire with rapidly failing health hires Philip Marlowe to investigate seemingly simple blackmail case involving one of his daughters The cynical PI charges only 25 a day plus expenses For this money he got shot at several times was knocked out by a blow in his head met uite a few dead people and helped some of them meet their early demise directly and indirectly I would say he got a lot of excitement at a bargain price I really need to say a couple of words about Raymond Chandler The guy took simple mindless entertainment called noir and made it an art form simple as this He was copied by practically every single noir creator since then I am not talking about books only movies theatrical plays radio plays TV mini series involving a lonely PI have Philip Marlowe as original source of inspiration Chandler s uality of writing still stands well above that of people who came after him Add to this a very fast complicated plot with numerous twists and you have a true classic of genre which while aged somewhat is still as entertaining to read or reread as it was almost eighty years ago when it was first published I am not going to mention great characterization short and to the point descriptions but these are present in all books of the seriesIf I am not mistaken this is fourth time I read the book and despite the fact that I can uote some passages from memory it is still not boring It still keeps me on the edge of the seat I would give six stars to this book if I could but I have to settle for fiveOne uote somebody stop me I don t mind if you don t like my manners They re pretty bad I grieve over them during the long winter nights PS It would be a great injustice not to include a still from the classic movie with great Humphrey Bogart PPS Canadians are lucky enough read have less insane copyright laws than most other countries to have this book freely available from Project Gutenberg Canada The rest of the world sorry your loss

The Big Sleep Summary ´ 100 Ye as defined by Raymond Chandler in his 1944 essay 'The Simple Act of Murder' Such a man was Philip Marlowe private eye an educated heroic streetwise rugged individualist and the hero of Chandler's first novel The Big Sleep This. A killing reading PAINT IT BLACK A nice state of affairs when a man has to indulge his vices by proxy That was the line that hook me when I watched the classic film adaptation the one produced in 1946 starring Humphrey Bogart and Lauren BacallWhile I loved the whole movie that scene between Marlowe Bogart and the character of General Sternwood Charles Waldron at the glasshouse in the beginning of the story was what hooked me It s a wonderful dialogue full of vices smoking and drinking and while I don t smoke and I seldom drink alcohol in parties I am not prude and I think that type of characters look cool while smoking and drinking Maybe because I think new millenium society has become too sanctimonious about the topics I know that they aren t healthy conducts but look at me I like to watch characters doing both things and I don t do them on my ownFunny thing that if some character uses a gun and kills some other character nobody is shocked but if some character smokes everybody gets scandalized about it I m told you are a widower and have two young daughters both pretty both wild It was a delicious dialogue between the detective Marlowe and the General Sternwood Certainly when the bundle of stunning ladies in those gorgeous 1940 s wardrobes and hairsyles starting to fill the screen the hook got me totallyI love Film Noir movies and I love detective novels so reading Noir Detective novels is like something I should to begin many years agoObviously I have watched almost all the relevant Film Noir movies that they were inspired by the same iconic Noir novels but even so I want to read those original books but also many others that they don t have film adaptation andor I haven t watched the movie version I am fan of movies and books so I do like both formats and I have no preference of one over the other I enjoy both ways to know stories The Big Sleep is my favorite Film Noir movie of all so I thought that it was the perfect choice to be the first fully Noir novel to readAnd I enjoyed a lot since while I still love the movie I enjoyed to read the differences on the book to be able to appreciate a different approach to the basically same general story It s interesting that while the book is open to show polemic issues and uite impressive taking in account that the novel was published in 1939 but the book isn t that packed of sexy scenes with lovely ladies as it was the movie versionA key angle to read the novel is that while in the movie the identity of the culprit I won t spoil it don t worry is left in the air on the book you will know uite clearly who did it And obviously that s the whole deal in a detective novel Still I love the movie version because is so much fun to watch it I have it on DVD and you can bet that as soon as it would be available on Blu ray I will order it at once BABY S IN BLACK So you re a private detective I didn t know they really existed except in books Philip Marlowe the detective in this novel along with the character of Sam Spade in its own book series are like the role models to the rest of Noir detectives that came after them Hat raincoat smocking and a bit if not lots of cynical humor You don t want them to be something different She was worth a stare She was trouble Femme Fatales Love them but be careful because they may be as lethal as gorgeous But you never be sure and that s part of the funThe Sternwood Sisters Vivian and Carmen certainly are great characters and impossible to predict what they will do nextHard boiled Detectives and Femme Fatales do a dangerous dance during the whole deal of the stories where the outcome of those are as important as to know who did the murderNoir Novels are hazardous beasts that have their own rules and they work in their own kind of universe where those rules have total sense indeed the whole reason of why we love to read them The Big Sleep is a prime example of the genre and also definitely one of the most relevant titles there A smart story with punchy dialogues and one heck of narrative
