This is John Mortimer at his best and. Paul Shelly's narration is compelling....as close to perfect as I have ever heard.

Listen to this book

This is one of those books that beg to be listened to. All the narrators do a magnificent job, the story is compelling and beautifully written. I thought I knew what it was like to be black and live in the deep South in the early sixties. I didn't really know until I listened to this book. It packs an emotional wallop that left me both angry and a little hopeful at the end.

Still Life audiobook cover art

a gentle mystery

Overall
5 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 08-26-07

I loved this book and the narrator was perfect. This is a gentle mystery with no violence but filled instead with compassion and a real moral compas. I grew very fond of the villagers and of Gamache (Chief Inspector) who I would love to have as a neighbour....and there is enough mystery to keep fans happy. I give this five stars and if I could give the narrator ten if I would.
