Reduce the amount of long, dull descriptions of events.
Effective, fit the tone of the story.
While the book offered some intriguing insights into the human condition, there were several long, boring dissertations of thoughts and activities that didn't add much to the overall story.
I wish I would have read the reviews on Amazon before selecting this, my first Inspector Gamache novel. Clearly the positive reviews are from those who have enjoyed the series from the beginning. I did not finish this book. It was slow moving, with endless, meaningless discussion of topics that were of little consequence. Ralph Cosham's performance was the only thing that saved this audiobook.
This was a very enjoyable story with captivating characters and interestng dialogue. I didn't want it to end.
A fascinating look at how love and passion drive people and how living through war affects a person's motives and actions. A bit slow at times, but a good story overall.
This is the best story I've read or listened to in a very long time. The plot winds and turns right up to the end. I became completely enthralled and did not want it to end.
