Thank you for Louise Penny on Audible Sessions!

5 out of 5 stars

I'm afraid Sophie sounded as if she'd never read one of the Gamache books., just firing off standard questions and not taking answers as a next step up. "It's not about the crime, it's about relationships" - "yeah, what's going to be next?" But never mind, it was great hearing Louise on Louise! Louise's novels are a deep dive into human relationships, about everyone's dark places, about the morals giding us, about how one person can cope and another can't, how one person will turn against others and another will turn upon him/herself. How People can simply fade by suffering. How the beautiful can be shattered and how something new can arise. I was lucky enough to find her first book just after it was published and I found it so inspiring, not least because of the poetry she draws on. I have been recommending her books ever since!

Gut gelesen - mehr gab die Geschichte nicht her

An das Niveau von Agatha Christie oder Caroline Graham (Midsomer Murders aka Inspektor Barnaby) reicht dieses Buch definitiv nicht heran. Zu offensichtlich die möglichen Lösungen, zu wiederholend die Gedanken. Dem Leser wird immer wieder erklärt, warum bestimmte Fragen zu klären sind - und dabei will er einfach nur endlich die Antworten hören! Sabina Godec reisst es raus - manchmal fühle ich mich trotzdem wie bei den ???.
Das Preis-Leistungsverhältnis ist ok, besser noch, man hat rechtzeitig erkannt, dass es Sammelbände gibt.
Ein halbes Guthaben dafür ausgeben? Nein, sicher nicht.

Feeble puns and lame gags within the framework of a poor excuse of a story, or rather several ones. At first I thought this might be a special edition of an old-time radio programme, when there was little choice for listeners and they had nothing better to compare this too. But no, that excuse doesn't work. The whining voices of the heroines drive me up the wall. There's no mystery behind the "crimes" and not a chuckle in the jokes. Example: "See that big crate in the corner?" "Crate Scott, that's a big crate." (shrill giggles.) Har....har......choke.
