This two book volume contains classic Rex Stout, the snobbery of the detective countered by the sassiness of his assistant. The Rubber Band is on of Stout's more complex short stories with a very unique ending. The Red Box is more direct with strong Rex Stout characters and fine tuned dialogue. A double treat for all Rex Stout fans!

Nero Wolfe is one of my all time favorite characters. I was very excited when these double books became available and am in the process of adding each one to my collection. This book in particular contains two stories I have not been able to otherwise find in print (not saying they are not out there somewhere, just not readily available). I first became aware of Rex Stout and his Nero Wolfe character with the A&E Nero Wolfe television series. Shortly thereafter, I began reading the books and have not been disappointed. Nero, Archie, Fritz, Inspector Cramer and the recurring cast of characters are always very entertaining. I would recommend The Rubber Band/The Red Box as well as the entire Rex Stout Nero Wolfe library to anyone who enjoys a murder mystery.

This is another great Nero Wolfe book. Rex Stout is one of my favorite authors and I enjoy all of his stories.

As always good plots and wonderful dialog between Archie Goodwin and Nero Wolfe. Both novels keep your attention and are easy reading with lots of twists and turns.

Nero Wolfe solves mysteries from the comfort of his New York apartment with the sweat and leg work of his right hand man Archie Goodwin and assorted operatives. Archie is the streetwise, suave counterpart to Nero Wolfe`s rather effete and neurotic character. The dialogue is very intelligent...never vulgar...and always entertaining.

It took me way too long to finish this book and really didn't finish all the way to the end of the second story. I was bored and falling asleep while reading it. Only tenacity got me to almost the end and then I just figured I had better books to spend my time.
