Review:

The Story of Classic Crime in 100 Books - Martin Edwards

As a work of literature review, Martin Edwards has spared no effort and produced an excellent volume of work, and I look forward to consulting the book in future to read up on some of the works mentioned. Some of them.

Overall tho, it is not a book that lends itself to reading to reading cover to cover: Edwards’ descriptions do include spoilers of different books, which put me off reading certain entries, and some entries I felt could have done with a bit more depth to the discussion of themes and characters or to the comparison of titles.

But then, it is an extended literature review…
