FREE Audio: Raymond Chandler Season

marloweBy now you’ll know that I spend a lot of time listening to books when I’m not reading, and the BBC is an unbelievable treasure-trove of really high quality readings and dramatisations.

“Dead men are heavier than broken hearts.”

Here’s a link to an 8-part series of classic detective fiction.  As I type, I’m listening to Toby Stephens playing ‘private eye’ Philip Marlowe in the classic The Big Sleep.  My year 10 class from this year will recognise the opening of the novel, and themselves produced some really impressive writing in the style of Chandler.
This version’s brilliant!
