    How sharper than a serpent s tooth it is To have a thankless child King LearReading a Lynley mystery each month is honing my chunckster reading skills Are none of these books less that 600 pages It s a good exercise, as this year I wanted to focus on reading hefty books page count over number of books While this one was a bit heavier in content than I would normally prefer I subtracted a star from my rating , it does make me want to dive into a classic of equal size All the reference How sharper than a serpent s tooth it is To have a thankless child King LearReading a Lynley ...

    Number ten is superb and proves the series is worthy of readingI absolutely believe this novel proves George to be a literary writer Without question she also writes with a feminine taint As long as men make the rules of what quality writing must consist of, the author probably will never completely receive what she is due in respect or awards But as for my opinion, there are few writers, literary or genre, who can fulfill both the requirements of providing reading entertainment, informing Number ten is superb and proves the series is worthy of readingI absolutely believe this novel proves George to be a literary writer Without question she also writes with a feminine taint As long as men make the rules of what quality writing must consist of, the author probably will never completely receive what she is due in respect or awards But as for my opinion, there are few writers, literary or genre, who can fulfill both the requirements of providing reading entertainment, informing the reader about elements of class and society, while illuminating the truths of the human heart She truly sees men and women with a profound clarity ...

    This was a long book Too often, I find myself disappointed when I get to the end of a story having grown to know the characters, becoming interested in the created community beyond the immediate concerns of the plot and just enjoying the ride Ms George s Inspector Lynley books are becoming longer, it seems, with each new installment Yet I am reading them as fast as I can The characters are believable and presented warts and all sometimes explor...

    Well this is the 10th book I have read by this author It was 594 pages long and a heavy hardback I m always impressed with the author s vocabulary and after reading 10 books with the same characters my fondness grows for them There was some friction between Detective Inspector Lynley and Barbara Havers in this episode which was unsetting and bothered me Up to this point they worked well together with mutual admiration, however now I feared I was about to lose a favorite character I m happy Well this is the 10th book I have read by this author It was 594 pages long and a heavy hardback I m always impressed with the author s vocabulary and after reading 10 books with the same characters my fondness grows for them There was some friction between Detective Inspector Lynley and Barbara Havers in this episode which was unsetting and bothered me Up to this point they worked well together with mut...

    The mystery portion was intriguingly convoluted, but, man, is Elizabeth George long winded 6 pages devoted to the back story and daily details of the person who found the body, another 6 pages for the back story and daily details of the kid who found the murder weapon, and we also get a continuing, unnecessary side plot about the murder victim s boyfriend, his alcoholic father, and their failing family estate.I was also occasionally distracted by the odd vocabulary choices It sometimes felt as The mystery portion was intriguingly convoluted, but, man, is Elizabeth George long winded 6 pages devoted to the back story and daily details of the person who found the body, another 6 pages for the back story and daily details of the kid who found the murder weapon, and we also get a continuing, unnecessary side plot about the murder victim s boyfriend, his alcoholic father, and their failing family estate.I was also occasionally distracted by the odd vocabulary choices It sometimes felt as if Ms George was using the thesaurus tool and choosing the most arcane or unusual synonym, regardless of flow or appropriateness I love words and the specificities allowed by a wide vocabulary, but sometimes the best word is the obvious, everyday word Ex His instructions could not have beenpellucid There is NO reason not to simply use the word clear in this sentence Pellucid adds nothing but unintentional humor.One final thought Ins...

    Een interessant boek Je wordt steeds op het verkeerde been gezet wie de dader is van de moorden In dit boek wordt grondig speurwerk verricht Dat is wat mij wel aanspreekt bij de boeken van Elizabeth George Verschillende verdachten komen aan bod en elk spoor wordt onderzocht Soms heb je bij thrillers dat vanaf het begin haast wel duidelijk is wie het gedaan heeft Dat is bij dit boek niet het geval Wat wel grappig is, is dat in dit boek verwezen wordt naar het boek Rebecca van Daphne du Mau Een interessant boek Je wordt steeds op het ve...

    As usual, Elizabeth George keeps me glued to the pages, and sporadically reaching for the dictionary reredos.I find it interesting that some people gave this one fewer stars because they hated the way Lynley behaved toward Havers etc HELLO THEY AREN T REAL PEOPLE, PEOPLE The fact that we are disappointed in him sort of indicates EG s skill at characterization, wouldn t you say Anyhow, complex plot, and I didn t recall all the details from the first time I read it I get her stuff ASAP and As usual, Elizabeth George keeps me glued to the pages, and sporadically reaching for the ...
