Yes for sure, so much in Louise Penny's Books I listen to them over and over to catch the subtle parts that I have missed.
I love the Character development, and the stories inside of the story.
The final scene in the the old Hadley house. Excellent, suspense but it cleared all the mysteries up too.
then the Cheif Inspector and his Lead inspector had the fight that started in the car and then they ended up sharing the whole problem with each other and working together.
Also Ruth and the Ducks...
Great Read! Really enjoyed it.
I have come to love Louise Penny. She is a wonderful writer. Her books are well written and filled with humor as well as mystery. Her town of Three Pines becomes a place you want to look for on a map--and her Inspector Armand Gamash--a person you want to meet. Narrator: excellent
These mysteries/stories/character studies are so complex and full of wisdom and humor - and poetry. I am going to hate finishing the last of the series (that starts with Still Life, by the way). I believe my favorite character is Gabri - or perhaps Ruth. I may need to listen more than once to each of them to carry away more of the references and pearls of wisdom. And terrific narrator.
I enjoy Scandinavian mystery and crime authors like Asa Larsson, Helene Tursten, Jo Nesbo, Karin Fossum and Amaaldur Indridason just to name a few.
Louise Penny writes a good story about the residents of Three Pines. Good to read series in order
This is the first Audible listen in years that I've ditched after hours of listening. Reviews of this book all indicated it was a good choice but for me, it was torture! There were just too many unclear subplots. It was hard to figure out who was who with all the French names and nicknames. After about 6 hours I decided I didn't care how the woman died or who killed her. I just wanted to be over it. I guess if you're a fan of this author or had read previous Gamache books, you may have insight I didn't have. As noted in the beginning of this review - enough is enough of this one!
I like mysteries (particularly British ones, historical fiction and nonfiction, science fiction and fantasy.
Up to this point the mysteries (2 prior books) involving Chief Inspector Armand Gamache of the Sûreté du Québec have been on the cozy side, with the inhabitants of the small village located a couple of hours from Montreal depicted as pleasantly off kilter. However, in this book Penny digs deeper into the character of the villages to paint a darker picture.
It's Easter and the inhabitants of Three Pines hold a seance. A person dies-- murdered or a heart attack-- or maybe both.
While investigating this mystery Gamache also is having to deal with an episode from his past that is reaching its tentacles into his present and figure out who among his subordinates might be in alliance with his enemies.
The ending is satisfying although not everything is solved.
Really enjoyed the narrator also. Cosham's French sounds elegant although I've seen some complaints about his accent, not Québécois but more standard in accent. Very pleasant and easy to listen to though.
A real pleasure.
I have read Louise Penny and her writing style has no down time. Everything written flows in a proper sequence. Always enjoy a new author-especially one who has more than one book she/he has written.
Most enjoyable. Been a Audible member since 2002 and enjoy mysteries. This is a great one. Mr. Cosham is an excellent reader, one you can understand and enjoy the different characters.
A foreign mystery with intellectual depth, cunning and intrigue.
Glad Audible searches for books I enjoy and books for those with other taste in thier authors.
I love this narrator so much. I have difficulty with remembering/separating some of the French names of characters, so I found myself having to replay some parts near the end.
I am now fascinated about the drawings found in the French caves and will have to look that up for more details. I love how the characters in 3 Pines are developing!
I would never be able to enjoy READING this book, because I would spend too much time in my head trying to say the names. I only found this series because I looked up everything R. Cosham has narrated.....his voice and the fluidity...what can I say! Now I am obsessed and can't wait to start the next one in the series...thank you Mr. Cosham!
Yes I want to go to 3 Pines......it's like when I listen to him read Watership Down, I become a rabbit!
These books are very pleasant to listen to. Narrator and writing is nice. It is funny how dangerous it is to live in 3 pines though.
