"In "On Writing," King talks about the magic of Chandler more than once, praising his simple description and storytelling techniques. Midway through "On Writing," I found a trio of Chandler in Faulkner House Books in NOLA, so naturally, it had to be mine. Started this story on the plane. I don't love crime noir stories, but I am loving Chandler's masterful storytelling." Jun 29, 2016 11:17AM

Found it a little boring. A very quick read, though when I finished, I realized I'd wanted a lot more. It's a really small story with a lot of telling me things. And the ending was maybe a little too melodramatic/self-sacrificial for me. I do underst ...more
