Good Morning, Midnight | [Reginald Hill]

Good Morning, Midnight

Like father like son....But heredity seems to have gone a gene too far when Pal Maciver's suicide in a locked room exactly mirrors that of his father 10 years earlier. In each case, accusing fingers point towards Pal's stepmother, the beautiful, enigmatic Kay Kafka. But she turns out to have a formidable champion: Mid-Yorkshire's own super-heavyweight, Detective Superintendent Andrew Dalziel.

    "late comer loves reginald hill"

    This well known writer is new to me, but I am totally delighted with the first of his books that I read. If you like literary illusions, wry humor, and a deft psychological novel, you will love this book. I'm now reading Death's Jest Book and so far, it's just as good as Good Morning, Midnight.

    "bit tedious beginning - but well worth hanging in"

    I found the beginning quite tedious and had to start again at the beginning - but then it was well worth it. Narrator is absolutely amazing and the reason why I stuck it out (also I read the death of daziel before - which i loved). Not the most likely story but the dialogue and character development is fantastic - especially for a 'crime novel'.

    "What went wrong?"

    I listened to this book and at the end I thought "what went wrong". It has good rich characters but the author did not use them to their fullest. The ending was just a real let down. I would not invest the money (even a free credit ) for this book.

    "Brilliantly written."

    If your view of Dalziel and Pascoe is coloured by the TV series, think again. The way these books are written, is witty and multi dimensional. The characters are complex and well drawn, and remain consistent throughout, not changing to suit the plot. The plot bounces off them, as in real life. The humor is wry and will make you smile wherever you are. I would highly recommend this to listen to . Shaun Dooley's voice does not get in the way of the story, I would say adds to the atmosphere. I would defy the listener to guess correctly the way the story is going to end. It is a long listen, and worth every minute.

    "Brilliant listen"

    I loved the story line - the way it draws you in so you can't wait to hear the next. I have listened to the book twice and would be more than happy to listen again.

    "Good book irritatingly read."

    I love the Dalziel and Pascoe books and was looking forward to collecting them as audiobooks to listen to whilst travelling. However here I find I am always waiting for the next mispronounced word - and there are quite a lot of them. Some may be due to an accent variation but most people don't put bucks into buckcases, luck into mirrors or phush phushchairs rather than 'pooshchairs'. There has been so much of this in the first hour that it has spoilt the book for me. Such a shame.
