Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Clare | 5/18/2011

    " This could have been a good story but it was like wading through treacle! I wonder why i wasted so many hours of my life on it! Never again.... so many better-written books out there. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bethany | 5/17/2011

    " Of the series, this was the most complex layered book to date. The two simultaneous plots, along with the gradual teasing out of a recent tragedy made for a wonderful read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Helen | 5/15/2011

    " Loved the way it linked three stories together. As ever a beautiful rendition of the inspector. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anne | 5/3/2011

    " Louise Penny has done it again. Excellent. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Melanie | 5/3/2011

    " Probably would have been better if I'd read the preceding books first, but even on its own, it was a bit oddly constructed. Vague in some parts and obsessive in others and other oddnesses. Exceedingly Canadian, though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan | 5/2/2011

    " I always enjoy her books! She tells a good tale and I like her descriptiveness. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jana | 5/1/2011

    " Boring, lots of explaining, no action. I loved the previous one I read but this one was awful "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Yeva | 4/28/2011

    " Even though I've enjoyed every book in this series, I found this one to be the best. The emotional ride was fantastic. "
