Chandler fans (like me) will enjoy this book, however, it is not the author's best work. This novel is not as witty or compelling as his other stories. The plot is complicated and difficult to follow. Even after repeated listenings I still have trouble following which character is suspected of what. That confusion left this reader a bit bored.
If you are new to Chandler and want to try something, then I recommend skipping this book, and instead try Chandler's short stories. They are much better,
Elliott Gould's narration is amazing.

Would you try another book from Raymond Chandler and/or Elliott Gould?
What other book might you compare The Lady in the Lake to and why?
Any Chandler mystery.
What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?
Not overly dramatic.
What character would you cut from The Lady in the Lake?
Any additional comments?
I wanted to read the novel along with this audible version but discovered that much, if not most, of Chandler's wonderful descriptive text was omitted. I only got through chapter one and gave up. Fine if you just want the story line, but so much is missed that matters to those of us who love books and descriptive prose.
