"[I]ntriguing, well-crafted....Seamless, often lyrical prose artfully reveals the characters' flaws, dreams and blessings." (Publishers Weekly)
Fall in love with the people of Three Pines and listen as Inspector Gamish (sp) finds and brings to justice a killer lurking just under the surface. I started with "A Brutal Telling," then went back to the first book in the series.
I enjoyed the low key storytelling style of the author as she described the citizens and their various lifestyles. Under it all is an underlying tension between the French and English of Quebec.
These stories are fascinating, the characters are so real, I feel I know them. I cannot order another book to listen to because I am so fond of Louise Penny mysteries. The narrator is perfect for a British, French Canadian story. I dread coming to the end of these books.
I didn't read the print version so no opinion.
Yes, for those that enjoy Inspector Gamache mysteries.
Not that I'm aware.
No, nothing extreme
Ralph Cosham was an excellent narrator. I would love to hear more by him.
Well, I think the icon chosen for me shows a young man... I am an old woman who likes to listen to books and hopes my ears last longer than my eyes.
I delight in beautiful word play and Louise Penney is a
master, I won't miss anymore of her books on A-audible.com
The many turns and twists that an older mystery
reader didn't expect, AND how much Gamache
loves his wife!!
I would have if I didn't need to take a wee dog out for the air.
Yes, an interesting story. This has a good murder mystery without too many violent details.
As good as the others I've listened to. Top notch narration.
Yes. Trying to guess who the murderer was. I was wrong. I did guess how the statue moved.
Sounded like each person was speaking.
Almost except I fell asleep after several hours!
Great mystery story. Complex but relatively easy to follow. I will be buying another Three Pines Mystery.
Reader. Painter. Newspaper columnist. Nurse. Humane Society. Lake life. Walker. Happily remarried - was a widow.
Bean teaching his adult friend the art of tossing marshmallow cookies so they stick on the ceiling.
The family dynamics. The mother and her secret that affected her children so profoundly.
My first of this series and now I am hooked. The Canadian scenery and fresh writing were enough to set this detective story apart, but the relationship between the detective and his wife was so warm and loving that I wanted to know more about them. Laid back and yet marched right along to a satisfying conclusion. Felt more real than many detective stories with a driven protagonist with multiple destructive personal habits. A good story along with a good mystery plot. Sophisticated mystery that walks the line between a cozy and a hard bitten style. I liked it - a lot. Am currently reading the first in this series and it is good as well.
I prefer reading Louise Penny books. Listening was OK but for me the read is better.
Not really, this time. But, I enjoy her character build ups.
Really don't pay attention to readers. Sorry
I really like all her stories.
the lead male detective
no extremes, but the story kept me wanting to learn more
A few seconds between chapters would be helpful, I had to rewind to find where one ended and the next started. Otherwise its easy listening, yet compelling because of the many characters and the intersting mystery.
