    Read this for Classic Literature's sake

    This was a pretty short read (10 chapters) and I got through it pretty quickly. It was easy reading. I had seen the Alfred Hitchcock's version of the movie before I read it, so I went into it thinking there was a going to be a romance. WRONG! It wasn't anything like the movie (actually, I should say the movie wasn't anything like the book). I might have been improved by including a romance, but that's just from a woman's point of view (ha, ha!). Anyway, my overall impression of the book was that I didn't like it quite as well as I thought I was going to. You could really tell it was a dime novel. I didn't understand the complicated international secret and Scudder's code, mostly because the author lightly scimmed over that part (and that's the main part, right?). I kind of got bored with Hannay running around chapter after chapter. But the last three chapters redeem the rest of the book, I think. That was when I began to get interested and it grew more exciting. It's too bad Alfred Hitchcock didn't borrow a little more than the title and the main character's name and nothing else from the plot. Would I recommend another person to read it? Since it's a short read, I'd say go right ahead... just leave all expectations behind you.

    The 39 Steps

    I consider myself a very discerning fan of thrillers and mysteries, and for good reason. These genres are easily some of the most populated ones in literature today. As a result I have very high standards for these books based off of not only its writer's style, but the sheer uniqueness of the plot and characters. Overall, The Thirty-Nine Steps was a disappointment. I understand that it is a classic written nearly 90 years ago, but that is perhaps where it should stay...in the past.
    For its time, the plot would have been considered original, so I will refrain from judging the book by that element. I think what really turned me away from the book was the near in-human abilities of the bad guys of the story to always be on his tail. Hannay could have been lost in a forest and yet they would always be there chasing him. Also, the book just doesn't ever make the reader care about the characters or even feel the sense of thrill or intrigue. Pros: Classic story, short read and fluid language use. Cons: Dry, hardly thrilling at all and almost ridiculously predictable at points.
