I'm a grad student, an avid reader, a huge nerd, fervent roleplayer, wife, cat lover, tea snob, and obsessive keeper of lists.
The Thin Man - Dashiell Hammett The Thin Man is solid noir fiction, and I quite enjoyed it, although the women are mostly burbling, sometimes hysterical liars (Nora Charles is a welcome exception.)

On the other hand, Dashiell Hammett doesn't seem to quite have the same turn of phrase as Raymond Chandler, so I think The Thin Man will probably remain in my memory less than The Big Sleep, which I read earlier in the year.

But it's solid, interesting, and definitely noir.
