Re: RARA-AVIS: The Pleasure of H-B/Noir

Date: 27 Oct 2005

The thing I enjoy about HB, at least the bits of it I have read is the dialogue. But I also like the characterization of a tough guy you find in these books. These are guys who don't take nothin off nobody. I am sure we have all felt cheated at one time or another. The HB protagonist might have been cheated, but he isn't going to take it lying down.

I love it that Sam Spade isn't going to play the sap for the femme fatale, even if he does maybe love her.
