I am totally invested in this series and its characters. There's a touch of slowness in the last quarter when we pick up one last character's storyline, but it comes to an awesome climax. Was totally satisfied.

Read it in two days. The book is really well paced, in part because there are two POVs, so the sorrows and secrets of each character (the wife and husband) propel the story along. A couple of elements seemed improbable, but plot points are less impor ...more

4 stars for the first half, 3 for the last half. (Listened to audiobook.) I'm not sure about some of the solutions proffered in the last part of the book, and there's a whole chapters for managers which was irrelevant. But I got a lot out of the firs ...more

Haven't read one of these in years! She's so good at capturing the feel of Austen's books, aside from the detective-work of course. Enjoyable read and a good audiobook narrator. ...more

Loved it! Another funny outing about friendship and what matters towards the end of life. And now there's a little dog too. :)

Can't believe I can keep all the characters straight, because Osman adds to their little circle with each book--so kudos to

Joseph Campbell
The Hero Path

We have not even to risk the adventure alone
for the heroes of all time have gone before us.
The labyrinth is thoroughly known ...
we have only to follow the thread of the hero path.
And where we had thought to find an abomination
we shall find a God.

And where we had thought to slay another
we shall slay ourselves.
Where we had thought to travel outwards
we shall come to the center of our own existence.
And where we had thought to be alone
we shall be with all the world.”
Joseph Campbell

“He is a pale, long faced, unsmiling fellow who probably lives on a diet of organic bran and carrot juice. He heard Ballard open the proceedings against La Maison with a pained expression, and looked at me over his half-glasses as though I were a saucepan that hadn't been washed up properly.”
John Mortimer, Rumpole à la Carte

Oh no! lol I didn't even realize it. Though I just checked my computer dictionary (Oxford American) and apparently it IS a real word!


Alex S I am very much amused that you used the word unputdownable in a review.
