Thank you Kerriou - very much looking forward to reading this, having read & enjoyed the previous 'Brodie' novels. Will report back in due course!

Journal Entry 4 by Bagmaker from Rhosllanerchrugog, Wales United Kingdom on Tuesday, May 18, 2010
Thoroughly enjoyed this, the third of the 'Brodie' novels. Atkinson is an excellent author, literate & intelligent, and I love the way these novels use the crime genre to explore society as a whole. A very satisfying read, with enough loose ends to make those that are closed seem credible - nothing too tidy & unrealistic, but no uncomfortable traumas left hanging.

Has to go into PC, I'm afraid, to join Case Histories & One Good Turn. Thank you to Kerriou for sending me this!

Thank you very much Bagmaker for releasing this from your PC to fulfill a wishlist book for me. I've read the first Brodie book and greatly enjoyed in and am looking forward to reading this one also.

Thanks also for the other great gifts you provided as part of your NSS treat, I felt greatly spoiled and am looking forward to the pampering, drinking, eating and reading you have enabled me to do :)

I do enjoy reading these Brodie books. The way the characters interact is, at times, reminisent of "The Importance of being Ernest". I think in this book the author introduces too many characters and at times I got confused over who was who (especially when she started talking about a family using the names of imaginary characters created for a (non existant) book based on the people. But the rest of the story line made up for this.

I hope the author writes a fourth book.
