[Books Read in 2015] The Big Sleep by Raymond Chandler

Honestly, I picked up this book only because it was a chosen as November's pick in Boxall's 1001 Books To Read Before You Die Goodreads group. I never heard the word "hard-boiled" fiction before and delved into it not knowing what to expect. Once done, my first thought was - "How did I miss to read any of Raymond's works for so long? I should have atleast heard about him and have one of his books in by TBR list, like I always do!". It was a fun, fast read with vivid scenes, striking dialogues and mystery built until the last the few pages. I added one more character to my ever growing list of fictional detectives - Philip Marlowe. What a superlative book! Must Read.
