This is my first Crombie book, and let there be no doubt, I want more.The voice and performance of the narrator have me seeing Duncan clearly in, "my mind,s eye." I admire the cool, calm, often restrained person this character presents. His intellegence is a magnet for me.Deborah Crombie's writing style suits me very well. The language is adult and doesn't leave you wondering about her meaning. The writing and story flows.
Not exactly, but it kept me guessing and getting it wrong often. There were truly some surprises.
Duncan putting the local detective in his place after listening to snide, disrespectful comments from the moment they met. I enjoyed the attraction and apparent respect the main character and the doctor had for one another, and could picture him sitting in the kitchen as she cooked.
More than one. I was touched by the way Duncan interacted with the children, and the teenager. The main character explaining that each of us are significant and made so by our dreams, actions, and accomplishments.
I plan on listening to the series and am fearful that having a different reader will cause me not to enjoy the books if Mr Deehy is not narrating. If there is one thing I would ask of the author, it would be: to give us a bit more humor.
My heart aches at the fact that Larsson is no longer with us. This book is as exciting and intriguing as the first two. The hero is relentless in pursuing the truth yet, he is not, "perfect." The lady sporting that tattoo is extremely smart, and aggravating at the same time. The way that the many characters come together is simply great. Some of the technical issues become a bit, "heavy." I'd find myself thinking that this author was brilliant!
A fantastic story that I am truly missing.
