Rex Stout's mystery novels are based on the world of New York circa 1940's and 1950's. Like the world created by Arthur Canon Doyle for Sherlock Holmes, Stout creates a world for Archie Goodwin and Nero Wolfe that form the basis for each mystery novel. The world is interesting and charming. Unlike Agatha Christie's novels, I've never been able to "chose the villain." Unlike Agatha Christie's novels, Stout gives you all the facts up front. Plots take interesting turns and twists. Archie Goodwin's wit will keep you laughing, but you can't help admiring both characters. The women who deserve it are always treated like ladies. Though there is murder, there is no "gore." Archie must fall in love at least once in every novel, but none of the ladies are ever able to capture him. Archie is incredibly clever and always charming. Stout's novels are a great vacation escape. I am attempting to collect them all. I recommend them to everyone.

The prose and attitudes may be very dated-they were written a long time ago-but the characters are clear, consistant and engaging. The dialogue may also be a little clipped, but it reflects another place and era. And with the Nook features you can really expand your vocabulary with this series.
