Fast, fun murder mystery. Nothing particularly notable, but it was a good book. Nice if you have a quick trip and dont want to split a 12-18 hour book up into multiple listens.
Very good build to the ending, which was quite well done. Emotional and fulfilling on several levels.
I Recommend highly.
Not sure what it was about the book, but it just wasn't for me. I'm mainly rating this book so that Audible can learn my preferences, so dont be too swayed by this review
Really excellent story, unique, great structure and had a bit Extra from the movie which I loved.
Great, great read.
The events in the book cover about 2-3 days from what I could gather, which on its own isnt a bad thing but it just seems like not much happens and that this book is clearly part of a larger story instead of being a complete package in and of itself.
Having said that, if you have tons of credits it would be fun to get into I think, I just dont know if I would spend 4 months worth of credits to get through the series.
I bought this as a daily deal not knowing that it was a "romance thriller" and while I usually wouldn't mind, the thriller plot was CONSTANTLY being interrupted by the high-school level writing of the romance plot. It was integral to the overall story, but the caliber of writing felt like the author who easily handled the intricacies of the other elements of the book let her little sister write the romance portion.
Once the romance plot came to its obvious conclusion the book was much more enjoyable, and the twist and turns at the end were good.
... But its basically exactly what you would expect from the story with no risks taken or captivating language or style.
Not to say I wanted anything exciting or unusual to happen, but it was basically a plain and generic telling of what happens to one of these poor and unfortunate girls.
That said, it was worth the listen.
With a huge number of short mysteries there is bound to be something in here for everyone. I admit some of them were a miss for me, but many of them were really great and took the idea and ran with it.
Hoping to get a bit deeper than the movie could delve I got the book, it was a bit of a let down as its roughly the same experience as the movie. The movie might even be a bit more enjoyable if you can believe it.
Another London classic, really gets inside the animal mind and his attention to detail is at his highest level here.
Such a quick read, but its such a wonderful little story of a dog finding his wild side again. Highly recommended
