Book report #10 of 26

The Last Good Kiss
James Crumley

Yea, I hated this book.

It wandered around, around and around.  It solved the primary case in the middle of the book and then created more mysteries along the way.

The main character was a drunk who was following a bigger drunk and they became friends and drank all over the West of the US.

Critics have described The Last Good Kiss as Crumley's best book.  That's too bad because I didn't like it very much.  Which means I won't be seeking any other books by this author.

Another apt description of his writing style was a cross between Raymond Chandler and Hunter S. Thompson.  Mostly the book is about all the drinking these two characters do along the way.

I just didn't like it.
