This class was tough.
This course was focused on mystery novels. It was such a great course to be in, especially if you have never read mystery before. There were great novels chosen, and a variety of authors. This course also included mystery films as well, so it wasn't all just reading. The movies included many genres, from classic 1920s to Film Noir to modern day films such as Fargo.
The highlights of this course were the readings and the films. The films were very interesting and were often films that are very popular in their time or no longer. The novels included in this class were also a great variety, there were the classic sherlock holmes and edgar allen poe, but it included authors such as Agatha Christie and Chester Himes. The discussions we had in the class were also fantastic as well.

Advice for students:
Always make sure that you read!! Always keep up with the readings and watch the assigned movies before class starts or else you will regret it. Don't procrastinate on the essays either, just because they are due at midnight doesn't mean that you should spend the entire day of working on it, so plan accordingly!
