    Story
    "Old school detective stories... of great value."
    What did you like best about this story?

    The stories are not easily discerned, they take some thinking and therefore offer good interest.


    What does Elliott Gould bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Great timbre in his voice, good quality in this interpretation of the work, and depth.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The honesty of the stories... the era that they invoke and the interest they create.

    Story
    "Chandler at his less popular best"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Killer in the Rain to be better than the print version?

    For me, it takes a lot to beat my minds eye when it comes to the written word but here Gould does an excellent job. With his gravelly voice remembered from The Long Goodbye movie in the 70s Gould adds atmosphere aplenty to this fine work from the master of the Southern Californian crime genre.


    What does Elliott Gould bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Gould is a shoe-in for this readthrough.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Definately a one sitting read.


    Any additional comments?

    I was given this book as part of a small collection of Chandler for my 21st Birthday ... some years ago.
