Don't buy this for a Kindle, you can't even read the print.
Just one mistake: the text in the back cover (yes, the one that you read before buying the book) tells you a little bit too much.
"Playback" has all of these elements but, unfortunately, in far lesser quantities than in Chandler's other Philip Marlowe books.
I liked the idea that Marlowe had a different type of ending maybe giving Dashell Hammett the idea for the Thin man? The ending made me think of Nick and Nora maybe you will too.Published 16 days ago by Peter Grosso
Phillip Marlowe is one of my favorite detectives. Raymond Chandler was a very good crime writer, great command of the English language. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Wally
Raymond chandler.really set the bar high for all that followed. The closest is Spenser by Robert Parker almost all the differences are a result of the years difference.Published 4 months ago by Niels C. Andersen
This was Raymond Chandler's last novel, published before he died. It doesn't seem quite up to his earlier books. Read more
I have read a Philip Marlowe book and selected it as whim as I was looking for something light to read. This book was a 'suggested book'. I throughly enjoyed it. Read morePublished 6 months ago by grc0520
Definitely not Chandler's best work but even so he is better than some at their best. It is a quick easy read for a lazy afternoon. Read morePublished 6 months ago by FES
Great book. Chandler married the old boy off and that's all folks. After reading all his novels I really wonder what I'll read next. It's hard to compete with this guy.Published 6 months ago by kelsie1968
