THIS WAS A NO GO FROM THE START!,
This review is from: Return of the Thin Man: Two never-before-published novellas featuring Nick & Nora Charles (Hardcover)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I love Dashiell Hammett and pretty much everything he's ever written. So, when I heard there was going to published two never-before-published novellas featuring Nick and Nora Charles(maybe only second in favorite characters created by Hammett behind Sam Spade) I was giddy as a horse high on caffeine. However, I hate reading plays and screenplays. Very much so! Well, that's what you'll be getting here folks. Not novellas in the normal format, but screenplays. When I opened this book to start reading I received a huge disappointment. Now, if this doesn't bother, then you may enjoy these novellas. I suspect, from the reviews I've read, that this is very subpar work by Hammett and makes me wonder how much of it is actually his writing. Anyway, this is just a warning for those, like me, who do not like reading stories in the screenplay type of format. Sadly, Mysterious Press should have advertised this as being screenplays for those unaware. Bad advertising!
