Playback- Whets the Appetite for More Of the Same.,
This review is from: Playback (Classic Chandler) (Audio CD)
I'm new to this series and this was my first hearing of a Raymond Chandler novel.
It' just one CD long and dramatised so makes a great listen in the car.
Other reviewers will have given you the lowdown on the story and plot so I won't go into that -others have been there before.
It is entertaining pure and simple.
True it's not a murder mystery as such, and not what I was expecting but my, it did entertain, spoken by Philip Marlow in the first person it really rattles along taking you with it like the train journey portrayed within the story.
Well narrated and presented this certainly made me want to seek out more in the series and, if the other reviwers are to be belived this episode although not considered the best is still dam good.
As stimulating as a strong cup of 'Joe' in the morning after a heavy night before.
