    I invented a new drinking game based on The Thin Man and tried to give it a test run when I re read it The rules were simple, every time that main character Nick Charles took a drink, I d take one, too However, I had to be taken to the hospital for treatment of extreme alcohol poisoning by the second chapter So don t try that.Nick used to be a private detective in New York, but he lef

    Nick Charles used to work in a private detective agency, got married later, came into good money, and took on a hard and thankless job of managing his investments The beginning of the book finds Nick and his wife Nora in New York It seemed they were drinking happily and heavily in a bar Later it turned out it was just a mild warm up routine for some very serious alcohol consumption We

    In Dashiell Hammett s The Thin Man, the relationship of Nick Charles and his wife Nora makes this stand out from other traditional noire detective novels While Nick has many of the same Sam Spadish qualities as other detectives in the genre, he actually listens to and values the opinion of his wife even if his language is sometimes patronizing Their banter also shows the tough guy perso

    What I learned from this book in no particular order 1 A speakeasy is the proper place for a man to wait for his wife to finish her shopping.2 A Schnauzer is NOT a cross between a Scottie and an Irish terrier.3 I hit Nora with my left hand, knocking her down across the room If a bad guy points a gun at you and your wife, the standard operating procedure is to knock her out to prevent her fr

    This Christmas you are invited to a party of hard liquor, witty repartee and murder in the company of Nick and Nora Charles A hardboiled crime comedy might seem like an oddball choice for a winter holiday read, but Dashiell Hammett manages to mix together not only killer martinis, but also a succesful marriage between the mean and dirty Prohibition Era gumshoe detective and the British slick
