Popular Books on Golden Age Mystery

 

When we talk about Golden age, what comes to our mind is an innovative time period or a postmodern era. Basically, this term has been taken from Greek mythology and It basically describes the state of human through 5 different ages. Actually, the golden era or ‘golden age’ is that era of history which is used to denote a period having peace, stability, prosperity, and harmony. At this time period, peace and harmony were in ample amount as also people were not needed to work to eat because there was abundant food provided by mother earth. If we talk about the fictional golden age era, then it is the time period when classic murder mystery novels were published. This period is usually considered to be between the 1920s and 1930s. Although the golden age is considered in between the above mentioned time period, such mysteries are still being written. But it cannot beat the standard of novels written at that time period which we call as Golden age. In that time period, certain conversations were introduced that actually limited the surprises and shocks on the reader’s part for the plot details and identity of the murderer. Still, many readers were misled by the authors.
