I still love the thin man!

Would you consider the audio edition of Audio Archive Presents Dashiell Hammett's 'The Thin Man' to be better than the print version?

I enjoy the casting of the thin man movies and love that they kept William Powell and Myrna Loy. It's their chemistry and banter than make this fun.


What was one of the most memorable moments of Audio Archive Presents Dashiell Hammett's 'The Thin Man'?

I love all the suspects invited to dinner in order to expose the murderer. In some ways the story is pretty innocent compared with mysteries now, and yet the basic formula stays the same.


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

The smartness of Powell and Loy.


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

Yes. An old radio broadcast all in about one hour
