I'm just not into James Cain's stuff. The first work of his I read one of his short stories in a hard boiled / noir anthology about a logger who saves a guy's life and then fights with him over his (the saved guy's) ex-wife. I forced myself to watch Double Indemnity Last week - I was turned off the first time I started watching this, a while ago because I don't like a narrative starting with a confession. I also read the Postman Always Rings Twice. I just find the instant deep emotions to be rather hollow. I know there are people who really do experience this, but it just doesn't ring as believable to me. If there was more backstory maybe. I don't plan to read/watch any more Cain, it's not for me.
