The Big Sleep

The Big Sleep - Raymond Chandler Interesting classic featuring private eye, Philip Marlowe. Great narration by Eliot Gould. The language used is very sterotypical old-fashioned gum shoe type language (women are all broads, etc.). At first I found this to be a light amusing read, but there is so much stereotyping (women, homosexuals, Jews) that I found it disturbing and did not finish it. If you are in the mood for an old fashioned private eye mystery, then this might be a fun one to pick.
