The Annotated Big Sleep, by Raymond Chandler; Edited by Owen Hill, Pamela Jackson, and Anthony Rizzuto

  • Title:  The Annotated Big Sleep
  • Author:  Raymond Chandler
  • Editors: Owen Hill, Pamela Jackson, Anthony Rizzuto
  • Borrowed from DC Public Library Paperback
  • Started:  3/18/2019

I had high hopes for this one, because as you can see in my earlier posts I LOVE annotated classics.  Those Holmes and Dracula annotated volumes by Leslie Klinger are some of my favorites.  

Unfortunately the Annotated Big Sleep didn't live up to those expectations.  It was still good and entertaining, but the annotations were a pretty big disappointment.  Some were insightful, most unnecessary or mundane. 

Still, fun to revisit this book.
