The Postman Always Rings Twice - James M. Cain - A Short Summary and Review

 


A short summary of The Postman Always Rings Twice:

A drifter drifts into an amorous entanglement and an assassination.

My favorite James M. Cain quote from the book:

"But love, when you get fear in it, it's not love anymore. It's hate."


Questions to ponder while reading the book:

Would you rather be comfortable or on your own?

Is there ever a good reason to commit a murder?

My review of The Postman Always Rings Twice:

Noir at its most politically incorrect.

Campy and cheesy but with surprising philosophical depth.

20th-century literary icon and the inspiration for so many other stories.

*Did you know? James M. Cain served in the US Army during World War II - read his Everyday Patriot biography here: A Soldier's Story: Private James Mallahan Cain
