BOOK: The Big Sleep by Raymond Chandler

I liked this. I liked this a lot. He writes in such a style. I dreamed it. I wish I had a narrator in my head, talking like Philip Marlowe, with Raymond Chandler's words.
This book was very short, but I definately want to read more of this style of book. The Lady in the Lake. The Maltese Falcon. The thirties detective. The cliche. And things become cliche because they are good. I could hear Bogart in my head, he is so tied to this character. I have crush on Marlowe/Bogart. Hard-boiled detective stories. The Big Sleep. Awesome.
