Book review: The Postman Always Rings Twice by James M. Cain (9780679723257)

Yes, I read the classics, too.  A tragic love story where a drifter falls in love with a married woman, they plot to kill her husband, their lust gets in the way of common sense, and it ends in tragedy. A very lurid, short story of 1930’s noir that holds the reader to the end.

One thought on “Book review: The Postman Always Rings Twice by James M. Cain (9780679723257)

  1. Great book. Cain’s writing is clear and sparse. I still find it hard to believe that “The Postman Always Rings Twice” is only 120 pages in my old Vintage paperback. And his “Double Indemnity” is 125 pages. Both these books have so much in them with so few words.
