The very last section where there was some action. The connection with the river and the lives of the brothers felt strained and a bit laboured. It would have been a more enjoyable read if I had experience of fly fishing and also if I were male. Making assumptions here!
Unlikely on the basis of this one.
The softer side of Cormoran came through reluctantly.
I enjoyed this book, in particular the complexity of the lead character. His ability to mismanage himself, hiss relationships and his disability was frustrating and also endearing, but he was certainly able to think creatively to solve crimes.
Near the top.
It was easy to follow the story of this man who set out on what appeared to be quite a ridiculous walk to prove a point.
I think the women in this story deserved attention - the long suffering, confused wife and the 'friend' who prompted the walk.
The various characters that Fry meets on his travels were interesting - at times almost ridiculous especially the large group he attracted. However, the encounters were unexpected and had a certain simplicity and honesty.
Be good to listen to it again as there were quite a lot of characters in it which was sometimes difficult to keep track of (but worth the effort). Keeping tabs on the various relationships was important.
Eliza would have to be my favourite - such a survivor.
She brought the characters to life by changing her voice to represent each of them
Great plot, with twists and turns. Loved the development of the characters who were complex but believable.
Great story -very engaging. The author /reader had a great sensitivity for the characters.
Her other books. She has an ability to develop a character and slowly but surely draw the reader into his/her world.
No, it was long but I savoured it.
The story line was reasonable but it felt ver drawn out
The reader was distracting. Her volume fluctuated which meant I missed quite a bit.
Kitty could have been less irritating as a character. The story could have been shorter and the reader more relaxed
Not really. I was irritated by this story
