Yes, Louise Penny writes for an intelligent, sensitive, thoughtful audience. Well done.
He is the voice of Armand Gamache
I loved this book but did not like how it ended. I need to get the next one to see what happens.
This book was an enjoyable inspector gamache story. Its almost a stand alone book as none of the familiar 3 pines characters are present which i missed
Fantastic stories. Can hardly wait to start the next one. I hope Louise is working on her next one!!!
The setting and atmosphere around the monastery were great and loved the information about neumes. I must say tho that I often found the way the dialog was handled became tiresome. Narrator was good except should learn how to pronounce "Francoeur".
Librarians don't spend their days reading books, which is really unfortunate!
Louise Penny writes beautifully and can craft a story superbly. "The Beautiful Mystery is no exception. Penny has a gift for giving a story space to unfold naturally while treating her plot, characters, and readers intelligently. In this part of the story of Inspector Gamache you'll want to recall Coleridge's statement that literature involves "the willing suspension of disbelief" or you will not get past the first few pages. The tale is well worth suspending your disbelief to read.
Nice to listen to a book with a refreshingly difference in a murder mystery. Although it was a bit drawn out, I did enjoy it.
In this book Inspector Armand Gamache and Jean Guy encounter the spiritual reality of monastic life. Both bring into the experience their own perceptions and come away changed. Incredible character development and stellar storytelling. As always Ralph Cosham is perfection in the voice of Gamache and a pleasure to hear for hours at a time.
