One of my favs.
The lead character trying to maintain a professional posture while living in his office.
Love to embraceable characters.
A great listen! Nice pace, great story.
I enjoyed the book, It was well narrated and a good story to listen to. I did enjoy the book.
I was hopeful when I downloaded this book for listening on a long summer holiday. How bad could it be, I thought, since it was written by JK Rowling under an assumed name. Harry Potter books, if not high art, were inventive and relatively well-written. I assumed that there would be some similar inventiveness in Cuckoo's Calling. The plot never really gets started, the conventions are mind-numbingly trite (a detective named "Strike" down on his luck, a dead cover girl, drug addicted boyfriend . . . . . yawn!) as to be unbelievable, and it's hard to drum up an iota of interest or concern for the characters who seem disappointed that they weren't written into a different book by a better author. I have to admit that I've slogged to mid-point and am thinking of stopping right there.
I hope she makes this a series! The story was enthralling and fun and the narrator was fabulous. I look forward to more. As we know, the author is great at writing series.
This is a great book and one I strongly suggest to readers/audible listeners who enjoy mysteries/ detectives books. The words used are vivid and the reader is quickly 'hooked'. I hope to see many more books with these main characters, Strike and Robin. The narrator as well brought to life quickly and so vividly all the characters in the book. It was truly enjoyable and I look forward to reading more from this author.
Yes, I would recommend. This is a good suspense and mystery novel. It's kept me entertained and wanting more after every chapter. Where most books you know what the ending is going to be before the actual end of the book. I didn't until the author revealed it. I wish there was a sequel.
Absolutely you will love the plot and audio!
The twists and turns of the plot.
The private detective.
No, I enjoyed every bit of it.
The poem at the start. It is extremely pretty and I had not heard it before.
From midway through, yes
Builds up well to a satisfying ending.
