The Thin Man Rothdas book review RSS
3.0 Stars

Nice. Short, pithy, occasionally dark, and often quite funny. I've already seen the movie for this twice, so I had a pretty good handle on the plot, but I still found the book to be an enjoyable read. The movie cleans up a lot of things from the book to make them palatable for 1940's screens, which is fine, but the movie also loses a lot of the more out there character bits from the book. So they are fairly different experiences.

I also like the fact that the title for the novel makes sense in the context of the novel, only barely makes sense in the context of the movie, and then is completely inaccurate for each successive movie. I like a franchise that sticks to its guns even in the face of all logic.
