really liked it
Read in November, 2011

These are much better than the average "mystery". Jackson Brodie is a private detective, but he is kind of an anti-hero protagonist and makes fun of his own many failings. The writing is good and the characters are unusual. I've read all 4 Jackson Brodie books -- like Erin I wonder if it's time for Atkinson to turn her hand to another protagonist. Liked it a lot, though.

Newsflash! Just found out from a friend that the title is from an Emily Dickinson poem. Maybe everybody knew but me? here is the poem:

Jennifer I hadn't realized that the title was from a Dickinson poem either. I just went and read it, though.


Angelika thank you for the link to the poem! I haven't been on "goodreads" long, but comments like yours make it really worthwhile!
