Although I enjoyed the book well enough, it was nowhere near as great as Postman, which I also re-read not too long ago.

************ I agree. It's not in the same class. Postman is a powerful and vivid work. A classic piece of literature. It spoke of the world.

I had no empathy with any of the characters in Double Indemnity, a serious flaw as far as I'm concerned. It didn't seem to me that Cain was doing anything more than going through the motions with the plot.
