The first in a long series of historic mysteries that keep you want to experience the adventures of this stout old monk. The narrator makes you see the different characters easily. The different people in the story are well developed and become real and complex. The author is in this story especially able to let the listener step back and look at the happenings with a human and wistful view. One of my most favorite listens ever.
To Say Nothing To Say About The Dog. by Connie Willis. This book is much slower in pace, but has also great writing and fun.
Tull makes Catfael rounder and sturdier and more humorous and human, more forgiving.
Any suggestions for books like that?
It is a great breakout story from the usual inspector Pitt series. The despicable grandmother has a chance to become known to the reader. She has a chance to show her metal as an investigator and maybe Charlotte isn't the only one in the family with a brain. It is a great listen especially if you know Pitt but stands quite on its own, too.
I liked it because it gave me a chance to know another member of the "Pitt" family.
Yes, I liked it a lot
Could be an introduction to the series.
I have listened to all nine Sookie books and very much enjoyed them. Listening to this collection of storries helped to fill in a few holes that seemed to be evident in the series. That was great! Alas,I fear that just listening to the short stories without the knowledge of the series ahead of time would not be best introduction to a new reader. The stories might wet one's tongue for more but also give some details of the books in the series away. Read the book after the series.
