Finished: “The Postman Always Rings Twice,” James M. Cain (#98)

by mostnovel

More of a short story than a novel, really. Read it within a 24-hour period. Maybe I’m just getting faster and building momentum… Anyway, the quick tale reads like a tame action movie slash courtroom drama. More of a situation-based plot than a character study. I kind of get the postman metaphor, but the story itself wasn’t that colorful or full of metaphor, so it seems like a funny title. I might have titled it, “Murder is Hard to Pull Off”. Classic case of not getting away with bad stuff. Glad to be done with it.
