Raymond Chandler first published The Big Sleep in 1939 introducing us to the world of Philip Marlowe A modern noir like detective story The Big Sleep changed the genre from passive interactions to action packed thrills between the private eye and criminals Set in 1930s Los Angeles then a sleepy town controlled by the mob as much as the police The Big Sleep is a non stop action thriller General Sherwood has hired private eye detective Philip Marlowe to solve the mystery of the whereabouts of his son in law Terrance Regan Marlowe takes the case because he usually subsides on 25 a day and figures the case to be cut and dry Then he is introduced to the General s daughters Carmen and Vivian and Marlowe is roped into a world of crime Instead of having to solve a missing persons case Marlowe has three murders on his hands and multiple mob goons breathing down his neck With little assistance from assistance district attorney Ohls and viewed as a nuisance by the Los Angeles Police Marlowe is on his own uestioning everyone from racketeers to pornographers he slowly pieced together Regan s whereabouts Adding to the thrill of the crime both of Sherwood s vixen daughters desire Marlowe in a way that has nothing to do with detective work All these facets of the book add up to nonstop fun Before Chandler introduced readers to pulp detective books crimes passively suggested whodunit The detective went pawning around for clues and eventually solved the case Last year I read a few modern mystery books set in the 1910s and they hold true to the time period The action in the novel as well as short sentences in first person created changed the way mystery writers wrote detective and crime novels Even though this book was published in 1939 it held my attention because of all the action packed into its pages Marlowe eventually holds off the Sherwood sisters and finds out whodunit to all of the crimes Smitten with the older of two sisters and in the good graces of the police and district attorney s office the door is open for Marlowe to return for detective work A fun book full of crime the mob and fast women The Big Sleep is a fun detective book that held my attention throughout I look forward to reading of Marlowe s cases and I rate this premiere 4 solid stars

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
