Happy reading Kylie!

Bea | 283 comments OK...so far I have not yet been able to join in on the monthly read due to either the book not available for me or not enough time. Well, this month, I am ahead! I have read this book and thoroughly enjoyed the characters and setting so much that I have continued the series. I am up to #5 now.

Great to know Bea! I picked up my copy this morning :)


Carolyn | 1512 comments One of my favourite series! Love Inspector Gamache :)


Kylie H | 926 comments I am only half way through and really enjoying this book!! I was wondering what Gamache would look like (trying to dispel Clouseau images) and found this clip. I really like it so thought I would share with the group. Sorry if it spoils your mental picture of some of the characters.

Hopefully the link works.
PS I have at least 7 suspects now and none the wiser as to who did it!!!

That's really interesting Kylie. The actress who plays Ruth is spot on! Gamache is okay, lovely speaking voice. Clara is too pretty and she does not have a relationship with Gamache. In the books he is much too much attached to his wife for anything else to be possible:)


Kylie H | 926 comments Yes, it is not what I pictured either (Gamache has a moustache, so a bit like Poirot in that respect), but it was nice to see Louise Penny talk about the characters. One day I may bring myself to watch the film.

I shall give it a miss. I am much too attached to the book characters to spoil it for myself:)

Bea | 283 comments Thank you for that link, Kylie. It was very interesting. And, I was especially interested in Louise Penny's comment that Clara is Louise in the books.


Kylie H | 926 comments Thanks Bea, yes that comment made me look at the character in a new light.

Started this one this afternoon and am enjoying it so far :) Gamache is reminding me of Hercule Poirot!

Me too - hope you enjoy the book. It is a good night for sitting down with a cuppa and a book. :0)
