Enjoyed the writing and turn of phrase. The down to earth characterisation was appreciated. The book was funny, tense, exciting all mixed together. Well worth a listen.
Haven't read the print version
The revelations about the structure of the island
A bit of drama
It was enjoyable and interesting, keeping my attention.
Not so much on the edge of my seat, but questioning and wondering
Peabody is always good value for the witty and sometimes slightly inappropriate comments
Yes, that's why I've listened to quote a number on this series
Just not the kind of style of book for me. A story of yesteryear and a style of yesteryear. Some flashbacks, and the story moves at a gracious pace, informing of historical settings and conventions, but not for me.
There is no fault in her writing, just not enough impact for my taste.
Among the best. It's good, engaging, leisure listening.
Some of the banter makes me chuckle
I have not read the print version. I'm an audible convert and rarely consider print books now.
I'm enjoying this series, feeling like I'm getting to know and care about the characters. I consider the books reasonably intelligent fluff and escapism. The plot is well written and formulated, so that you only really know who the murderer is when the author allows you to see and it is unexpected.
A book read to you with different 'voices' becomes like a radio play. I think it was well done.
I've been enjoying the characters created in the Pendergast series and the Book of the Dead, complete in itself, cleverly brings threads through from a number of the others, keeps you engaged and wondering how everything is going to fit together.
Pendergast, of course, as he is the hero, capable, enigmatic, caring in a distant sort of way.
Yes, it is very well put together.
This series of books is slightly wierd (from my perspective). Some of the characters swear quite a bit, but the main characters don't so much. The wierd storylines are also woven with some interesting information indicating that some considerable research undergirds the themes.
I would recommend this because the story is strong, the characterisations are interesting and there was good tension.
Yes, but you can't, so instead I listened as much as I could over the weekend, gardening, shopping, doing the washing, cooking and any other excuse!
Challenging, Inspiring, courageous
The biography of coming to a faith in God, accepting the challenge from God to serve the suffering church in humility without judging those on either side of the communist regime. A fantastic listen and challenge to my faith and trust in God - it's timeless and encouraging.
Generally I like the series, ordinary people have amazing stories of faith and perseverance, that really are inspiring. I don't enjoy them all, but that's personal preference and different people are inspired by different things.
I would recommend this to friends, everyone needs to be encouraged and provoked at times and we really benefit from the support and encouragement that these kinds of shared experiences bring.

Depth to the story, my first Women's Murder Club and will listen to more. Liked the lack of foul language and multiple facets to the book
