The characters continued to be weak throughout, but if you're into theories about spaceship propulsion or what four physical dimensions would look like, these books are cool. I need to read something completely character-focused now, though.

I've loved each Chandler I've read but this uh, this uh is from 1940 and features black people and uh, and uh,
