Thea tagged me, so here’s the popular book meme courtesy of … well … me.
1. Whatcha reading?
I am reading “Red Harvest” by Dashiell Hammett and “The Beach” by Alex Garland.
2. How much of it have you read so far?
I am only one chapter into “The Beach” but am 60 ish pages into “Red Harvest.”
3. What’s it about? (in a nutshell! A sentence or two is enough.)
Harvest is about a private detective who takes on an entire town rife with moral depravity from top to bottom with the intention of cleaning it out.
4. What does the title refer to?
I do not know yet. I am thinking, perhaps, that it will have some amount of bloodshed since the majority of the characters are villains and dirty characters who will hopefully get their come-uppance. Hence the red (bloody) harvest.
5. Would you recommend it?
So far, a yes. I love Hammett’s writing and would recommend anything he has written.
