Brilliant! I don't want to give the story away by saying too much. If you have not read or listened to “A Rule Against Murder” (book 5) I would suggest you do that before you do this one. “Bury Your Dead” contains a new murder, story, characters, but it also takes us back to the Hermit. Made me laugh. Made me cry. Absolutely wonderful! Ralph Cosham did a wonderful job narrating.
Sophie Hannah has done a wonderful job with this book. I finished it with the feeling that Poirot was just picking up where he had left us many years ago.
I enjoyed the new introduction of Catch Poole( if I spelled that correctly). If there are more books to come he fits nicely with Poirot just as Captain Hastings did for so many years.
Narrator did a wonderful job with the entire book.
As a die hard Agatha fan I had reservations about this book and the proposal of someone else trying to bring back Agatha's characters. Especially this one. I had made up my mind not to purchase it in any form. I saw a review from Agatha's grandson I think it was and he was thrilled with the book so I thought okay, if the family is okay with this maybe I should give it a try. I hope after reading this from me you will also give this book a listen. Plot, characters, etc., etc. very unexpectedly good!
As usually Ms. Penny has out done herself. I don't want to give away any story spoilers so I will just say if you are a fan of this series, don't miss this one.
All of Ms. Penny's books keep me on edge. Can't put them down and this one was no different. She brings you into Three Pines and into each character in a way I can't explain. They feel like family. I was happy to see in this book several characters that have struggled in the last couple of books have worked thru their demons and are thriving in this story.
Ralph Cosham was perfect! Viva Gamache!
There were several areas of the story that moved me. The ending made me cry but also made me smile. But, again don't want to do a spoiler alert so won't tell you why.
If you have never listen to this series you must start with book 1. I think the book stands very well on its own but I also think you won't understand the characters, parts of the story and why they are important unless you start with book 1. I hope you enjoy the book as much as I did. Already waiting for the next one!
Laurie King has done it again! In this story we meet new people and bring back old friends.Holmes is as sly as ever and Mikroft is intertwined throughout.Jenny Sterlin has done an excellant job,as always,with narrating.You should listen to "The Moor" before "Justice Hall".Highly recommend!
