I have read all of Grafton's stories to-date and this was no exception in providing excitement that held me throughout. It provedes a new insight into the homeless and the choices they make that was thought orovoking. Now on to X!
Having enjoyed most of the other books in this series, I had my hopes too high.
Characters were thinly drawn and behaved unrealistically. Even Kinsey felt like a shadow of her old self. The issue of homelessness took center stage, but was not conveyed in any depth.
The narrator voiced Kinsey as weaker than the Kinsey we've come to know. Her sarcasm and edge didn't come through.
Storyline too drawn out...boring at time. The subtext seemed to show way too much soul searching by Kinsey which distracted from what I love about Grafton's A-Z novels...murder mystery. I have read them all so hope the last three are not like W.
I just love Sue Grafton's series. Living in "Santa Theresa" myself, I am well aware of the homeless situation. It was nice to hear a story from inside the homeless life, there are many sides to ones life. As always the story was captivating, interesting and certain made me smile. And I love to read descriptions of my hometown. Well done!
Kinsey Milhone, private eye is up to her neck in murder, mystery, and investigation
6 degrees of connectedness, how seemingly unrelated persons and events all converge in murder and greed and family.
nuances that accent story line that you would not get by reading
yes, wanted to know what happens next or who shows up next
Sue Grafton has not lost her touch in the alphabet from A to W, each book is a good read or listen and it is good to go back to the 80's.
