The story is wonderful and not just for children. Michael York's reading made it come alive.
The reader can suspend disbelief and truly go through the magical wardrobe.
I enjoyed hearing Edmund's voice as he goes through all too human failings.
It was great to listen to the book a bit at a time and let the magic sink in.
CS Lewis' Christian message seems a bit heavy handed to the 21st century reader, but still powerful and poignant.
Cut throat art world leads to broken necks.
Penny seems to know the ins and outs of the Montreal art scene. Her depiction of the dealers and brokers and their intrigues, gives the novel depth.
Gamache and Bouvoir continue to amaze as their relationship evolves.
On going reconsideration of Clara's relationship with her childhood friend is the kind of dynamic that Louise Penny handles so well. These are not one-dimensional characters. There is often no "one moment" but rather a building of small ones.
Ralph Cosham's voice and inflections make the novels, each and all, wonderful to the ear.
This is a true classic, one that I am sure I will listen to again to connect the threads in the three mysteries that run through the novel.
Each plot line builds in suspense, almost in competition, with no clear resolution in view.
Each story assumes prominence as it unfolds and the author skillfully moves the reader's focus from one to the other. This technique is both frustrating and spell binding.
As in all the novels, Chief Inspector Gamache is the compassionate, intuitive, and very human center, whose anguish over a mistake and resulting loss of life, reminds us of imperfection and frailty even in the most stalwart fictional heroes.
"Bury your dead" is a novel that exceeds the limitations expected in mystery genre.
Yes, with the caveat that there are some over the top histrionics included.
Louise Penny is wonderful. This book is good, but not one of my favorites. Still a great story well told.
Cosham segues from English to French well. I wish he would differentiate the voices a bit more.
To see Gamache and crime scene with Three Pines in Spring time? Of course!
I love AMS's characters. They are like old friends - full of all of the characteristics that make us human. The story is a blurr. Not much really happens, but there is still suspense and resolution. Fun to read, but very light.
A bit shorter than most. What's not to enjoy? Wonderful dog, well meaning people occasionally going astray. Redemption for the wicked. Nice ending which leaves the reader wondering what will happen next.
I've listened to others in this series. All first rate.
Try to appreciate my friends more!
Waiting for the next by Alexander McCall Smith - Botswana, Scotland or England.
