Mysteries, shmysteries!

It is Big Read time 'round these parts and so far, everything's swimming along fine. Our choice this year is Dashiell Hammett's "The Maltese Falcon". There are a ton of events to be apart of - book discussions - author talks - movies - to join in on. Coming up next:

I will be co-leading a discussion at the Grand Rapids Area Library at 10:30 on Wednesday morning, February 13th to discuss "The Maltese Falcon".
What did you think of it? What did you think of the Flitcraft parable? Have you seen the movie?

After seeing the movie again after many years, I forgot how much dialogue was in it! It certainly paved the way for other film noirs, but I don't think I'd say it was the best by any means. Humphrey Bogart and Peter Lorre are great in it - and it's worth a watch just to see Peter Lorre's tiny little gun and his crybaby antics.
