it was ok
bookshelves: mystery
Read from October 28 to 30, 2013

Mediocre. Sure, it's a short story (billed as a novella), but it takes skill to write a good short story - to evoke mood, character, mystery. This, instead, is just a stripped-down mystery, with any superfluous details missing. A poorly written mystery, not a well-written short story.

Barbara That's too bad. I know how much you and I enjoy the Inspector Gamache books.

Beth J Ah well - she tried something new, and it didn't work. But I still love Gamache!
