Still Life
Still Life: A Chief Inspector Gamache Novel | Louise Penny
Winner of the New Blood Dagger, Arthur Ellis, Barry, Anthony, and Dilys awards.Chief Inspector Armand Gamache of the Surt du Qubec and his team of investigators are called in to the scene of a suspicious death in a rural village south of Montreal. Jane Neal, a local fixture in the tiny hamlet of Three Pines, just north of the U.S. border, has been found dead in the woods. The locals are certain it's a tragic hunting accident and nothing more, but Gamache smells something foul in these remote woods, and is soon certain that Jane Neal died at the hands of someone much more sinister than a careless bowhunter. Still Life introduces not only an engaging series hero in Inspector Gamache, who commands his forces---and this series---with integrity and quiet courage, but also a winning and talented new writer of traditional mysteries in the person of Louise Penny.

I chose this book because I‘d seen some good reviews and wanted to find a new ‘detective‘ series. I didn‘t really enjoy this one. I found the writing clunky and I wasn‘t drawn into the mystery. I‘ll have to keep hunting 😊

Christyco125 I had the same feeling about the first one. Think of it as more of an introduction to a bigger world. The stories get more interesting and the characters get way deeper the longer you follow the series. 2d
Eva2 Thanks for that @Christyco125 😊 2d

Grounded in relationships, emotions, and inner-life, this murder mystery is about what gives life meaning. The victim‘s death was one moment in a surging stream of many beautiful others, and that is recalled lovingly through the grief of her artistic community of chosen family. Every character, whose minds we skip to rapidly through the novel, is challenged to grow and learn. Some choose not to, and theirs are the “still” lives.

vivastory Fantastic review. I've been meaning to read this for awhile & your review has definitely bumped it up my TBR 1mo
Michael_Gee @vivastory oh, great! I hope you like it, too. It was recommended to me months ago. I was on the library‘s wait list for awhile before it became available but it was easy to read it all before the due date. 1mo

If you don‘t over analyze this it‘s a solid read and I can understand why she seems so popular a writer in this genre. Inspector Gamache is an interesting character and I‘ll be interested to see how he grows with more books. Heavens knows she got quite the backlist to catch up on.

TiredLibrarian I thought this was the weakest book in the series. They get better as the series progresses, and they build upon each other. Not a series to read out of order. You have some good reading to look forward to! 📚😊 4mo

My first Louise Penny, and now I get what so many of you have been talking about! What an excellent book! With so many mysteries, the murder is just a way to introduce the mystery, the body just a prop, but Penny gives life to all of her characters and makes their mourning central to the story. I intended to save this for my afternoon walk but listened all this morning instead. Guess I'll have to get the next book in the series for my walk. 🤷‍♀️

1. Sometimes yes, sometimes no 🤓

2. The Gamache/Three Pines series by Louise Penny; Charlie Parker series by John Connolly

3. Actually I've been reading more nonfiction lately because I'm tired of all the same tropes (especially missing girls). But I do love boarding school settings, and gritty inner cities.

4. My health, and that of my family; may it continue to be good.

DieAReader I think we are trying to escape the same🚤 So very tired of the “missing girls” & “sex trafficking” tropes. Even when I think I‘ve chosen something completely different, 💥there it is again! Another of the above😣 5mo

Enthralled with this series, which I was introduced to when I found Still Life on a remainder table a year after its initial publication. So Superintendent Gamache is our literary luminary for the day. He will read an excerpt from the tagged book, & set up a challenging scavenger hunt, after which we will play the board game Clue.

Avanders Fun! 👏🏽👏🏽 I‘m almost done reading book 4… 🥰 6mo

Maybe I am too analytical? I have some serious questions about police procedure in Canada. This might be the first detective book I have read from there? But why on earth would a detective gather the town and tell them all about their suspensions and what murder weapons they are looking for? Why wouldn't a detective be able to search a house of a murder victim?
Spent a lot of time pausing and saying Why? What?

I think this book suffered from high expectations as I have heard this mystery series recommended quite a few times. I found some of the characterizations a bit flat.... But maybe that is because it was her first book.
I will give a few more in the series a read to see if I enjoy them more.

(don't pay attention to how dirty my touchscreen on my car's dashboard is!)

This was an interesting character study,with a mystery that kept me invested in finding out what happened.I wasn't a fan of the way Nichole was treated,and also there were a few comments about makeup that implied it made a woman 'fake' that I didn't appreciate.Seemed like a fair amount of internalized misogyny.But I'll probably read the next few and see if they get better

Just finished rereading this (my 3rd time reading it!), and celebrating Caturday with my boys.

I‘m currently leading a monthly discussion of Louise Penny‘s works for my library system, and it has been so much fun re-exploring some of her books, and I eagerly anticipate continuing the series.

Penny has a gift, and I learn so much every time I reread a book. This is the first in the Gamache series - not as polished as others, but I still ❤️ it!

This book was WONDERFUL. I‘ve planned to read the series for awhile, but wanted to start with the first book. My library had it but there were holds, then they couldn‘t find it (mysterious!) and finally I caved & bought it used via Amazon. I practically inhaled it. It‘s literary, kind, unsettling, thoughtful, and intelligent. What a character Gamache is. What a writer Penny is. 🧡🧡🧡🧡🧡

Our snow is gone! Book crossed off my #BookSpinBingo card.

Mystery set in a small town in French Canada. Enjoyed both the detectives and the various characters in town who all felt fully realized. The mystery was quite good with enjoyable twists and turns. Several characters were artists and I loved how that played into the story as well as the descriptions of their art.

Nute I really enjoyed this book because of the quirky characters and the quaint setting. I read the first book earlier this year. I am planning to revisit Three Pines with at least one book yearly. 13mo

This was on my tbr for months. When I saw it on a librarian‘s post of Thanksgiving books, I decided it was the perfect time. This book is set in Canada so Thanksgiving is early/mid October rather than November when I celebrate in The States. BUT it is autumn and a well written murder mystery. I enjoyed learning a little more about Canada as well. I plan to read more in this series.

I‘m now rather fond of Inspector Gamache and his band of Sureté investigators. The whole time I was reading this book I heard it in a voice that I couldn‘t quite put my finger on until Inspector Gamache sat on a bench to watch the sunrise. It was Tom Hanks. ? The plot is intriguing, quaint, funny, and surprising. It was a fun mystery that had me chuckling and guessing until the end. I‘ll definitely be reading more of this series!

Because of what often felt like overwhelming dullness to me, I likely would have DNF‘d this if it hadn‘t been our book club pick. I‘ve abandoned far too many of our picks and wanted to see this one through. My three star rating might seem generous with that in mind but the things I did like balance it out enough to warrant a middle of the road perspective.

abookishbutterfly @katy4peas I heard it gets better as the series continues but I don‘t have any desire to continue. It wasn‘t incredibly well-received in my book club, either, which surprised me with all the rave reviews I saw on Goodreads. I thought/feared I‘d be the minority opinion! 1y

abookishbutterfly @Josee.a.lu.lit.et.lira What genre would you consider it? It was pitched for our cozy mystery theme but yesterday, as we discussed it, someone said this isn‘t a cozy mystery. Not being very familiar with what does constitute as a cozy mystery, I wonder where this actually fits, then. 1y
Josee.lit.a.lu.et.lira @Butterflyamore Mystery. I guess I get the cozy adjective; it‘s not gruesome. I really enjoyed the characters, the village life, the community; I just don‘t care about murder. What did they qualify it as? Curious now 😉 1y
abookishbutterfly @Josee.a.lu.lit.et.lira That wasn‘t specified but I guess I would assume mystery minus the cozy part. I don‘t see how it fits anywhere else! 1y

Day 8 of #20series20days

Louise Penny‘s mystery series is a favorite of mine. It‘s a police procedural series set in a small village outside Quebec that is filled with a group of quirky characters I have come to love and enjoy spending time with book after book. I can‘t wait for the next one..I want to find out what all the villagers are up to and I know there will be a great mystery to be solved. I highly recommend the audiobooks.
