message 1: by Kelly (new)

Kelly I define "literary mystery" as the person who created the list does: mysteries written in the style of quality literature.


message 2: by Foxontherun (new)

Foxontherun Have you seen the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo movie yet? Almost as good as the book. Amazing acting and cinematography, and it stays amazingly faithful to the text.

liked the movie more than the book: shorter, more intense, and less fantasy- subtlety not required, images can cover same plot mechanics quickly, images indelible, characters iconic rather than pages of description


message 4: by Ramona (new)

Ramona Long Great reading list!


message 5: by Lori (new)

Lori I have 'mysteries written in the style of quality literature' as well as literature that happens to have a mystery. I also only have one book per author.


message 6: by Amanda (new)

Amanda Thoughts on adding Louise Penny's "Inspector Armand Gamache" series to this list?


message 7: by Sandra (new)

Sandra Wilson I agree that Louise Penny's novels should be added to literary mystery category. They are wonderfully complex with intriguing motifs.

I voted for a couple of her books; surprised they are not on the list!


message 10: by Sheila (new)
