This review is from: Double Indemnity (Paperback)
I love most of James M. Cain's work like The Postman Always Rings Twice and Mildred Pierce. My favorite piece of work, though, is Double Indemnity. It's tough, real and it was based on an actual incident. The dialog is cynical, which is as it should be. The chraracters have no lllusions about one another. They have no illusions about life, either.
The lenght is just right for one of Cain's novels. I read it for the fourth time in a couple of hours and I will read it again. This is the perfect book for a rainy night. It's to be enjoyed with a glass of something strong, but not too strong. The story is already that.
