[Novel] The Red Harvest (Dashiell Hammett)

Red HarvestOne of the better noir mystery classics, it might not be the deepest, most thought−provoking book in the world, but it sure packs one thrilling twist-filled adventure through the rotten nooks and crannies of old USA. Though, as per usual of such fiction, I find it to work a lot better as a movie, preferably with Humphrey Bogart in the lead role.

Positive: Negative:
Cool noir atmosphere Hard to keep track of characters sometimes
Likable characters Doesn’t stand out from other noir novels that much
Captivating plot
Good pace
