NO. She reads like a robot. It's like a female text-to-speech engine not a person.
A human? Plus fairy tales need music in the back ground if the narrator isn't going to read with any emotion.
A fun story, but a bit too much going on. Also, the plot seemed to defy logic at points.
I honestly can't figure out how Ulli Birve gets work at all. Her accents would even be adequate for a friend telling a joke at a bar. She really ruins the experience. It's a shame.
The story was OK, but a little corny in the end. The Ulli Birve was just awful. I really can't believe that she can find work. She can do about three different accents, and two of them sound Australian. Just awful reading. The ending was a little silly.
It seemed exceedingly implausible.
Absolutely NOTHING. It was awful.
Hate Ulli Birve's work, and read the next book.
I wish it had not reveled the criminal so soon, and given the reader a chance to try to figure it out based on clues
It depends. If they like classic mysteries, then no.
This actually could have been a really good mystery, since there were some solid plot elements there, but it was as if the author was too focused on the making her characters one dimensional to do anything with the story. You pretty much new what was going to happen so long before any of it happened it was almost pointless to read. There was also so much back story that the "mystery", if we can call it that, was really more of a setting than a plot.
I think there was a lot of potential in this book, but it was all fumbled away. I am going to read another to see if she was able to capitalize on her ideas better in future books.
it would be a spoiler
possibly. the book did such a poor job, but there were some good ideas. i think this could be one case that the movie might be better than the book.
NOT A MYSTERY
It was a good mystery with a back story. Bit too much back story, but barely so.
Poirot, because of the mysterious elements to it. Eleven Days was more of a thriller though.
Louise Penny found a great thing by putting a solid back story with her characters as well as creating good mysteries. In this installment though, there is just to much peripheral, that it threatens to take over the book. Still a good mystery, but a bit too much drama.
It is important to note that this is not a mystery that you can try to figure out like an Agatha Christie. You are told who did it in the end, of course, but there is really no way to figure it out, and you are not expected to try, as far as I can tell.
