    An old broad that enjoys books of all types. Would rather read than write reviews though. I know what I like, and won't be bothered by crap.

    "Howard Duff as Sam Spade!"
    If you could sum up The Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cottontail Caper in three words, what would they be?

    silly, witty detective !


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Effie, the secretary. Sweet and clearly crazy about Sam, she plays a nice foil to his complaining.


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

    This was my first Sam Spade, but if Audible has more I will get them. This was fun!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me giggle. A lot of topical jokes that may be dated, but being a history nut, I think I got most of them. When Sam says to the other detective at the end, " This is my show, get your own!" I laughed out loud.
