If you don't already have a bookshelf full of Raymond Chandler, Ross McDonald and other excellent mystery writers of those times this is a fine start, three good, solid novels to take up the shelf space of only one. I'd easily give every Raymond Chandler novel he ever penned 5 stars and these are no exception. You won't go wrong reading Chandler mysteries and you won't go wrong with this compact edition of three great books in one.

Chandler reigns Jan. 20 2006
By impitbosshereonlevel2 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I first came across Chandler when I heard the Coen brothers interview and discovered that 'The Big Lebowski' was written in the style of a Chandler novel (name itself being derived from 'The Big Sleep'). This alone interested me enough to buy and read The Big Sleep.

Six novels later, I'm still reading Chandler novels, and still finding each and every one different, interesting and intriguing. The main character Marlowe is a wisecracking detective, wary of women - whom he obviously mistrusts - except for the "bad type of women", for whom he does not particularly care. He is also a complex, intelligent man, often an altruist who goes to some extraordinary lengths for his clients, even when he's not paid.

Novels are usually set in 30's/40's Hollywood and Bay City (which is since called something else), and are especially nostalgic, if you've lived in the surrounding areas.

Chandler's writing is funny and unique - the stories - all told in first person, are written so that the reader is both aware of Marlowe's conscious thoughts, and at the same time, when the ending or some pivotal point in the story arrives - is not. This point is not easy to describe, but it works extremely well - the stories are always amusing, captivating, and suspenseful.

I will easily recommend any Chandler novel for anyone interested in mysteries, as well as to those that enjoy unconventional styles of storytelling.

This is a beautiful book, very readable type, great writing by one of the masters of the genre. Definitely recommend.
Marlowe's final four Dec 5 2013
By Henry Porter - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
As you near the end of this second volume of Philip Marlowe novels (say, about halfway through The Long Goodbye) you can't help but get a little sad at the thought that soon you will have read them all and there will be no more.
Good edition May 10 2013

Format: Hardcover
Good edition. This is your essential Chandler collection. If you do not know the master of the mystery yet, this is your chance.
