The Long Way Home by Louise Penny
"Oh, Louise Penny. I’m sorry, but this book is ridiculous. I hate to say this, but I’m done with Chief Inspector Gamache and his pals in Three Pines. The early books are good, but the two previous novels (The Beautiful Mystery and How the Light Get..." Read more of this review »
The Long Way Home by Louise Penny
"I'm not sure how to rate this. It has Penny's wonderful writing, colorful characters, insightful comments about human nature, and awesome humor. However, the storyline just dragged, especially in the middle of the book.

Crikey, if you ever want to read a full-on emotional rollercoaster that grabs you by the throat and doesn’t let go, make it this one. It’s pretty clear from an early stage what is likely to happen, and though you dread it you have to read on. Then wh ...more
