The Big Sleep (Philip Marlowe, #1)The Big Sleep by Raymond Chandler
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A good read, but definitely not uplifting (a major factor affecting my enjoyment of any book) considering the rough sleazy characters and topics that give me upsetting dreams. That being said, I understand why it is considered a classic: Chandler writes a twisting, compelling narrative with both a spare style and absolutely wonderful metaphors.
