It has been such an intense last week, so it feels great for this moment to finally arrive ð i really enjoyed His Bloody Project. Lets hope this one delivers too!
A really well written slow paced âthriller‘. I really enjoyed the characters and the plot development. I was very surprised at the ending, but can‘t think of a different way to wrap it all up. I‘ll be hunting down âThe Accident on the A35‘ like Gorskie hunting down a killer ð
This audiobook is available on Audible today for Q9.99. Has anybody read it? Would you recommend it? Not a book I have heard of before.
He really is a masterful writer. A very unusual crime novel, more concerned with looking at the two main players lives than with any of the crimes committed. Burnet really can do no wrong.
You‘ll be swept up by creepy Manfred and Gorski‘s relentless dedication to his craft. Both men have compelling backstories that have intersected once before. Nowâwhen both are older, more mature, and with a lot more baggageâthe game of cat and mouse begins anew, this time due to the disappearance of the eponymous waitress. â¬ï¸
NPR was raving about this one. http://www.npr.org/2017/10/25/559062641/ad-le-bedeau-is-a-delightfully-macabre-m...
Love, love, loved this book! In essence it's a crime novel but from an observer's perspective - the observer being the protagonist Manfred Baumann. He's a fascinating character and, for me, not particularly likeable which makes his observations even more interesting and surprising.
The book trots along at a comfortable pace and there are plenty of twists and turns to keep you on your toes. I can't recommend this enough!
4.5 stars. Finished His Bloody Project, my first book on the Man Booker long list. Since I have more to say than I can manage in 451 characters (love that @Litsy chose that number!), I've included a link to my non-spoiler Goodreads review if you're interested. https://www.goodreads.com/review/show?id=1712264005.
This book isn't on Litsy yet. I bought it on kindle last night and am about 25% of the way through it so far. It's a crime story that is a whydunnit instead of a whodunnit told using documents. It starts with statements take by the police. I'm currently reading Roddy Macrae's journal (although the narrator points out that there are questions of authenticity). It is also interesting learning about the life of 19th century Scottish crofters.
His Bloody Project (not in Litsy) is of the longlisted titles for the Man Booker Prize and currently available on Kindle for only $5.99!! Oh how I love a good bargain ð
