Though longer than it needs to be, this thriller keeps the reader on tender hooks. The author weaves a psychological tale with so many ins and outs that the reader will be constantly mesmerized. One vacillates every few minutes between certainty and uncertainty over what the truth really is in this engaging mystery. Michael Kitchen's mellifluous voice is the icing on the cake.
I loved the psychology of the choices of several characters .
Not a thing.
David Lasken has written a saga of a family's hard work, enduring love, heartbreak and fate. This true story encompasses life's experiences that are relevant to every individual. The reader feels as though he has made the journey along with this family and one embraces each member and feels immersed in his or her story.
The tone and the even-handedness of the author in telling the story.
Was able to sweep you up and engage the listener as if this was really his story.
The epilogue was immensely moving.
Bland characters, plodding action, repetitiveness and reader's frequently audible swallowing.
More character development. Attempts to make the reader connect with individuals.
This might have been a wonderful read with all the traditional English murder trimmings. Instead, it was deadly dull with protagonists who were supposed to be charming, witty eccentric spinsters. But their characters were contrived and they were much too pleased with themselves. I found it very hard to generate any interest in them. The "action' goes at a snail's pace and the plot is weak. I wouldn't recommend it.
