    Toby Stephens stars in this BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation of Raymond Chandler’s second Philip Marlowe mystery.Fast-talking, trouble-seeking private eye Philip Marlowe is a different kind of detective: a moral man in an amoral world. California in the ’40s and ’50s is as beautiful as a ripe fruit and rotten to the core, and Marlowe must struggle to retain his integrity amidst the corruption he encounters daily.In ‘Farewell My Lovely’, Marlowe has a chance encounter with a not-so-gentle giant outside Florian’s nightclub.

    What did you love best about Raymond Chandler: Farewell My Lovely (Dramatised)?

    All the atmosphere which was perfectly mirrored in the audiobook. Actors that performed voices were really good. Also sound effects build perfectly the right circumstances feeling


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Raymond Chandler: Farewell My Lovely (Dramatised)?

    Every part of that book for me is memorable


    Any additional comments?

    It is a pity that it's abbriged. With love I would listen to the whole book made in the same manner. This is why I did not put 5 stars but 4

    Would you listen to Raymond Chandler: Playback (Dramatised) again? Why?

    I did in fact do that several times already and will be back again.
    Beautiful story, the character that is unforgetable, tough guy with short speech not eager for the money. That is what I do not see a lot around myself


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The plot is one thing. The atmosphere is the second. Attitudes of characters is third. All of these are keepinng on the edge of your seat.
    You do not want to go to work...


    Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have listened and/or have read all of them. This is probably the shortest but very mature


    Any additional comments?

    I would like to hear not abbriged version made in the same way
