I had tears of joy at the end of this book!! Thank you Louise Penny for these marvelous characters. I want to live in 3 Pines!!!
I loved the characters and the setting. It's more than a book about murder, it's about love and loss and transition and acceptance. Highly recommended!
I have been listening to this series in order. This one is the most intense so far for me, but not so much that it turned me away. The intensity helped solidify the characters in my mind, and I love them even so much more now. My only complaint is the JARRING switch from the very poignant final moments of the book to the interview with Louise Penny. Don't get me wrong, I thoroughly enjoyed the interview as well as the book, but it was too much to jump from an emotional scene to a happy chatty interview. I rushed to hit the pause button so I could stay in the book, mulling it over and digesting it as I always do at the end of good books. The next day I went back and happily listened to the interview. This jarring bit could easily be avoided with a simple narrated statement after an appropriate pause saying stay tuned for the interview.
I was a little disappointed with the last one, but this makes up for it. Great book! Great narration!
I love learning bits of historical facts through fictional characters and stories. This was a fast-paced mystery that kept me guessing and turning the pages for more.
I think the narrator needed to differ his performance more. There are many flashbacks and swift changes between character perspectives. This can be hard to follow when the narrator does not stop in between character changes or changes in scenery. I have not seen the printed version but I would hope there is a space between paragraphs when there is a shift in the story. That was sorely needed in this performance. Other than that, I thought the performance and story were wonderful.
Not right away. I am to busy going to the next book she wrote
The characters seem so real. I love all of them . They are interrelated but uniquely different. I love all of them.
Their is no
Ganache without Ralph
Yes. But I like to savor, sauté and marinate. I look forward to getting in my car , driving and listening.
I wish she could do two books per year.
The fascinating twists of the three stories was exhilarating; the pain of the characters in each storyline reached out to the listener and pulled me in. I love this series and I'd encourage everyone to start at the beginning. To get the full impact of these stories, it would be important for listeners to at least read The Brutal Telling first.
