    " Some of the words "Ellis Peters" uses in the Brother Cadfael series are so archaic, I need to keep a dictionary handy. But that is not a complaint. The words that were chosen and the manner of their usage are like poetry when combined into these well-written historical mysteries. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura | 2/11/2014

    " Brother Cadfael investigates the suspicious death of Gervase Bonel, rich lord of the manor. This full-cast dramatization stars Philip Madoc as the medieval monk and sleuth, Brother Cadfael. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ruth Fabiano | 1/28/2014

    " Much better paced then #2. Nice little mystery story. I love how all of Cadfael's cases get rolled up into "neat little packages". I think one of the lingering themes of the character is his understanding of moral ambiguity. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vicki Cline | 1/28/2014

    " No young lovers this time, but we learn more about the abbey and its occupants. Cadfael gets to go to Wales again, which he loves. And Hugh Beringar helps to clear up the mistaken charge of murder against the son of a very old flame of Cadfael's. Plus a very tense ending. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Martha | 1/17/2014

    " I love this series! Cadfael would have been an absolute prize in England's grim 12th century! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen | 12/20/2013

    " Ellis Peters' Brother Cadfael series - set around 1000/1100, a Welsh man who had been with the Crusades, soldier/sailor, loved women etc settles down to retirement as a Benedictine monk, working as an apothecary within the abbey and the community, and assisting the sheriff with mysteries. He's a really wholesome character who understands people and life, not at all narrow and irritating. There is also a series of movies made based on these books with Derek Jacobi playing Brother Cadfael "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alana | 12/3/2013

    " more of a 3.5, but it made me impatient to read the next one, so I'll give it a 4. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erica | 11/26/2013

    " I don't read a lot of mysteries but this was entertaining and a quick read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 liirogue | 11/14/2013

    " A very enjoyable novel in this series, though perhaps not as strong as the first two. The plot is as carefully sculpted as in the first two books, but it takes a little bit for the action to begin. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hazel | 10/16/2013

    " The Brother Cadfael series by Ellis Peters is a wonderful set of mysteries that take place in 12th century England. Ellis Peters does a wonderful job of describing all the characters and she is a great mystery writer. The cases are complicated enough to make them interesting. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cindi | 10/15/2013

    " Great book! Ellis Peters knows how to grab your attention and keep it! Going to get the next book in the series at the Lawton Library! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Meghan | 7/27/2013

    " This one I solved pretty early in, although I don't generally try to solve mysteries as I'm reading them, but I enjoyed it nonetheless. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sue Maloney | 11/1/2012

    " Wonderful audiobook narrated by Derek Jacobi--it was like having Cadfael read to me! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 AleÅ¡ | 10/4/2012

    " getting more fun with each book "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tal | 9/5/2012

    " Cadfael the tv adaptations are an old favourite of mine (Sir Derek Jacobi! monks! stuff!) and i'm glad to see the books are as delightful! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brenda Haven | 6/28/2012

    " Totally enjoyed this third book in the Brother Cadfael series. Well written. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary Diegert | 7/20/2011

    " Entertaining mystery set in medieval period. I like the main character. "

    " Hate his writing style, but books themselves are OK. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 stitchnsnitch | 5/10/2011

    " I love that each of the books in this series so far has been of consistently good quality. I also really enjoy seeing glimpses of Cadfael's past! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jill | 3/29/2011

    " One of my favorite Brother Cadfael mysteries! I absolutely love Brothers Cadfael Mark, and wish they lived next door so we could swap gardening tips! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Picklefactory | 3/27/2011

    " One of my favorites of the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katie | 1/23/2011

    " Another great volume in the Brother Cadfael series. Ellis Peters demonstrates the classic mystery writing style of dropping clues and making the reader feel as though they are making the discoveries along with the characters. I enjoyed the little twist at the end too. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary | 12/18/2010

    " This was a good one - good, simple story; good characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 La Chipie | 11/25/2010

    " Ouhou, il est terriblement sombre celui-là aussi. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 amy | 10/11/2010

    " Original title for U.S. release (1981): Leapers, Lepers & Love Affairs. Overly whimsical, confusing; did not sell. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alice | 7/14/2010

    " The solution to this one was easy to reach, but I enjoyed the journey with the good brother, as usual. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cat | 4/11/2010

    " I love the characters in this book. I'm not sure I love the love story, however. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brent | 3/7/2010

    " Another good one, although none so far are nearly as good as One Corpse Too Many "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vicki | 1/13/2010

    " It was very interesting reading about the leper hospital. What a terrible disease. The young lovers in this book seem to have been in more peril than in other of the Cadfael books, but it's comforting to know all will be well by the end of the book. "
