Double Indemnity - James M. Cain, James Naughton I thought that Double Indemnity was a decent book. It was an easy novella to follow, the main character was likable (except that he was a murderer), and the writing was clean. It was also well narrated by James Naughton.

The main character seemed a little quick to fall in love and be willing to kill someone for a woman, and yet, although it comes across as unbelievable in this book, this sort of thing does happen in real life. Nice guys do kill (and throw their own lives away) for women they hardly know and should never have gotten involved with.

This book is classic noir. Unfortunately, it just hit a little too close to home for me to be able to fully enjoy it.
