A Timeless Classic

Would you listen to Audio Archive Presents Dashiell Hammett's 'The Thin Man' again? Why?

No, too hard to hear without plugging into a stereo to boost volume.

What other book might you compare Audio Archive Presents Dashiell Hammett's 'The Thin Man' to and why?


Did the narration match the pace of the story?

Yes. But why is the introductory background narration so loud and clear while the actual story is so poor in volume level?

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

Yes, when Nick rounds them all up for a dinner which reveals the murderer.

Any additional comments?

The volume on these audible books is pathetic on my Kindle! Without an ear piece, it can barely be heard.
