Ross Macdonald is the main pseudonym that was used by the American-Canadian writer of crime fiction Kenneth Millar (/ˈmɪlər/; December 13, 1915 – July 11, 1983). He is best known for his series of hardboiled novels set in Southern California and featuring private detective Lew Archer. Brought up in the province of Ontario, Canada, Macdonald eventually settled in the state of California, where he died in 1983.

Reading Ross Macdonald is like eating bubble gum. After while one piece tastes like another and the plots all blur together. I enjoy the stories, especially for his descriptions of places and people. At times he he quite poetic. Southern California exists as a fantasy land for me, especially for the times Macdonald describes. The fact that Lew Archer has a sense of integrity, has a reasonably good relationship with the Police, is no superman, makes him believable. Usually the plots are believable and have interesting twists and surprises. Sometimes the stories start too slowly but, then, suddenly, gather momentum, causing me to give up on them, almost. I recommend this and Ross Macdonald's other work, not as serious literature, but as an entertaining pastime.

This is an early MacDonald (1948) and wasn't as good a read as his later work - which, admittedly is an extremely high standard to aspire to. The first third of the book builds up the history of the characters and is slow going: Brett is a recovering amnesiac WWII veteran just after the end of WWII and the mystery involves his first wife; the love interest is his girl/fiancee Paula. In places there are bits of dated Freudian psycho-babble. After the slow beginning the The story transitions into a typical hard-boiled detective novel, although not as complex as MacDonald's later novels. The best parts of the book were the descriptions/characterizations in the second half. For comparison, I've read most of what MacDonald wrote after 'The Way Some People Die' (1951) and I'd rate most of those books (including 'The Way...') 3.5-5 stars.

An interesting view of a writer still finding his voice, The Three Roads is a bit too slack and talky to hold one's attention for very long. An extremely unlikable damaged veteran tries to recover his memory and find his wife's killer as his improbably loyal former paramour either helps him or holds him back. The psycho-babble is a bit much, the plotting is weak and the characters' persistent failure to act like real human beings and more like psychological studies lead to some really groaners. But MacDonald is still an entertaining writer, and this is a fun read for anyone who appreciates his admirable later work.

Ross Macdonald is a fine mystery writer. This was another great book that goes beyond it's genre.

Probably his least interesting novel. Boring. I usually love RM but everyone has to have a dud, I suppose.

I started it late in my lending library period and didn't finish it in time. The book must be popular, even now, since i had to wait a few weeks to have it renewed.
But now, i have.
I would say “Classic” Macdonald except that the subject matter is not quite what one would expect in a mystery novel. Psychoanalysis and arguments for and against its various schools of thought. I am somewhat versed in the matter and still found its detail a bit obstructionist to the reading. But, I did enjoy reading a Ross Macdonald I had not previously even heard of.
Maybe, I can find more.

The Three Roads, an early work from the prolific pen of the legendary Ross Macdonald, is an interesting and worthwhile read, especially for readers who are already Macdonald fans. It was written before Macdonald had decided to concentrate completely on the hardboiled detective genre and is probably best described as a psychological thriller.

The plot revolves around Paula West, a strong willed and successful Hollywood screenwriter and the man she loves; Lt. Bret Taylor, a naval officer who suffers from amnesia. The story is told as a third person narration and takes place a few months after the end of WWII.

The first half of The Three Roads is strongly written and stands on its own as compelling reading. This part of the novel is noteworthy for its clever dialogue, its detailed development of the two principal characters and its very smooth narrative flow. The second half is less compelling in that it gets bogged down by both overwrought psychoanalytic theories and some plot elements that are rather implausible, to say the least.

Lt. Taylor is a very troubled man and his problems can be traced back to losing his mother when he was only four. Those familiar with Ross Macdonald's biography know that he himself was four when his parent's separated. That event had a terrible impact on Macdonald and is something he never really got over. Virtually all of his fiction, to one degree or another, centers around the profound and long term consequences of family dysfunction.

The Three Roads is a well written, though flawed, mystery in its own right. It also serves to illustrate how Ross Macdonald's lifelong effort to exorcise his own demons manifested itself early on.
