The narrator was spot on; and I do like a strong female lead. Kinsey Milhone is strong, but she's still all woman.
This novel is very nearly two for the price of one. The way the characters crossed paths in the story was really surprising and very nicely done. This was my first Sue Grafton novel, but she has hooked me.
I've been reading Sue Grafton's series since the beginning! W is as wonderful as all the others! Always an unexpected twist that make you shout out loud! I can't wait to start reading X.
I have read all the Grafton alphabet books and this one was not my favorite. Kinsey use to be funny and spunky. She lost some of her spark in this book. She sounds exasperated and tired of what she does. I hope in the future that Kinsey finds her old spark and goes back to making me laugh when I'm not intrigued.
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.
