    A Morbid Taste for Bones by Ellis Peters is a 2014 Mysterious Press Open Road Media publication This book was originally published in 1977 I have been curious about this series for a very long time I love the Medieval period in history so it should be right up my alley The series is a long one with at least twenty installments, which is one reason why it has taken me this long to finally take the plunge Thankfully, my Kindle Unlimited subscription paid off, so now it will be easy for me A Morbid Taste for Bones by Ellis Peters is a 2014 Mysterious Press Open Road Media publication This book was originally published in 1977 I have been curious about this series for a very long time I love the Medieval period in history so it should be right up my alley The series is a long one with at least twenty installments, which is one reason why it has taken me this long to finally take the plunge Thankfully, my Kindle Unlimited subscription paid off, so now it will be easy for me to finally get started on this series In 1137, the head of Shrewsbury Abbey is compelled to acquire the remains of Saint Winifred, which will add some prestige to their Benedictine status So, an expedition to Wales is arranged, of which Brother Cadfael is a part of However, upon arrival, they are greeted with some opposition But things really take a sinister turn, when the main protestor is found murdered It is now up to Brother Cadfael to root out the killer and the true motive behind the murder.These books are super short, but this first installment seemed to move at a very slow pace Although the premise is interesting, the story didn t really draw me in until the last quarter of the book I also struggled a bit with the sentence structuring at times, unsure if it was meant to read that way or if there was a formatting issue Brother Cadfael s character eventually grew on me as the story progressed The wry humor is a nice touch and the mystery did have a few interesting developments The author also added some rich details, which was enough to encourage me to try the second installment in the series to see how it progresses from here Overall, I wasn t really disappointed in the book, per se, just a little underwhelmed by it Still, I think it shows some promise, although I shall proceed from here, with cautious optimism

    Affectionate SarcasmThis first Cadfael story is about clerical arrogance, deceit, vanity, pettiness, ambition, vengefulness, and ultimately homicide in a 12th century monastic community It also touches on idolatry and superstition in medieval Britain And it makes several clever swipes at clerical celibacy and misogyny, miracles, religious piety, and the efficacy of prayer Yet for all that it cannot be judged anti religious It is clearly a work in which there is an underlying appreciation for Affectionate SarcasmThis first Cadfael story is about clerical arrogance, deceit, vanity, pettiness, ambition, vengefulness, and ultimately homicide in a 12th century monastic community It also touches on idolatry and superstition in medieval Britain And it makes several clever swipes at clerical celibacy and misogyny, miracles, religious piety, and the efficacy of prayer Yet for all that it cannot be judged anti religious It is clearly a work in which there is an underlying appreciation for the ideals of medieval Catholic culture.Edith Pargeter s skill in carrying off such apparently contradictory intentions is probably what makes her Cadfael series so popular What she endorses about Christianity is unstated but understood It is the character of Cadfael himself, who after a rather full life of adventure sexual as well as geographical finds monastic life and its routines to be just what he needs It is through his eyes that all the deficiencies of the Church are observed and recorded And yet he implicitly assures the reader that it remains a worthwhile institution.There isthan a touch of Pre Raphaelite sentimentality in Pargeter s prose captured rather well I think in the cover of my edition Nevertheless it is impossible for me at my stage in life to disagree with Cadfael s express motivation for adopting the lowly status of monkWhen you have done everything else, perfecting a conventual herb garden is a fine and satisfying thing to doI understand entirely.Postscript I suspect that Pargeter s St Winifred is based on the legend of the 12th century St Frideswide, patron saint of Oxford The famous Pre Raphaelite stained glass artist, Edward Burne Jones, created a large window in Oxford s Christ Church Cathedral in 1858 depicting scenes from her life The last of these has various of her devotees surrounding her deathbed see below In the background Burne Jones has placed a modern porcelain flush toilet Pargeter emulates just this sort of tongue in cheek humour in her story

    Justice can be arrived at byroutes than one I thought this book was a swell start to this series Brother Cadfael, monk by vocation and detective by circumstance, is a really delightful character A medieval time, Welsh born man, Cadfael now carries out his monastic duties at Shrewsbury Abbey in England He has not been in the service of the church his entire life, however, and that is what makes him such an intriguing fellowFor Brother Cadfael had come late to the monastic life, likeJustice can be arrived at byroutes than one I thought this book was a swell start to this series Brother Cadfael, monk by vocation and detective by circumstance, is a really delightful character A medieval time, Welsh born man, Cadfael now carries out his monastic duties at Shrewsbury Abbey in England He has not been in the service of the church his entire life, however, and that is what makes him such an intriguing fellowFor Brother Cadfael had come late to the monastic life, like a battered ship settling at last for a quiet harbourA former soldier and captain of a ship, Cadfael has even experienced his fair share of sweetheartshe remembered other ladies, inlands than one, with whom he had enjoyed encounters pleasurable to both parties, and no harm to eitherYou can t help but adore this guy While Brother Cadfael may be well liked, author Ellis Peters also introduces us to some less agreeable characters as well Prior Robert cuts a splendid and authoritative figure, and is well aware of this factFor whatever virtues might be found in Prior Robert, humility was not one, nor magnanimity He was invariably sure of his own rightness, and where it was challenged he was not a forgiving manThe prior s latest ambition is to acquire the relics of a saint in order to advance the prestige of the monastery Thus begins an adventure to Wales in search of the resting place of Saint Winifred Prior Robert bands together a small group of his monks to carry out his mission, Brother Cadfael among them due to his Welsh background He will serve as translator between the Shrewsbury brothers and the people of Gwytherin Upon their arrival at Gwytherin, the monks quickly realize that despite the fact the saint s grave has been neglected, the villagers are not necessarily keen to give her up to a group of strangers Here we meet another group of interesting men and women Peters certainly delivers in her characterizations I loved that she also included a strong female figure in a young woman named Sioned Brother Cadfael is not without a great sense of respect and admiration for her as wellThere are women as strong as any of us, and as ableWhen a leading citizen of this quaint Welsh village turns up dead, Cadfael will put to use his sleuthing skills to ensure that justice is served But this unconventional monk will not necessarily do everything by the book, making for an intriguing, sometimes humorous, and very enjoyable read I ve had A Morbid Taste for Bones waiting for me on my kindle for quite some time now I dillydallied about actually reading it, thinking that a book about an assortment of monks could be either a snooze fest or too heavy on the religion I was wrong When a GR friend chose this book for me as part of a book swap, I finally jumped right in I am so glad that I did, because I have now found a fabulous, new to me, historical mystery series to indulge in thanks, Jen Recommended to those that love historical mysteries with an appealing and bit out of the ordinary leading man

    Note, Aug 7, 2017 I edited this just now to correct a minor typo.Dame Edith Pargeter had already, by 1977, made a reputation for herself, under the pen name of Ellis Peters, as a mystery writer but under her own name, she was also a respected author of historical fiction, much of it set in medieval Wales When she brought the two genres together in this first of many novels, set in the border country between England and Wales where she grew up in the turbulent mid 1100s and featuring Brothe Note, Aug 7, 2017 I edited this just now to correct a minor typo.Dame Edith Pargeter had already, by 1977, made a reputation for herself, under the pen name of Ellis Peters, as a mystery writer but under her own name, she was also a respected author of historical fiction, much of it set in medieval Wales When she brought the two genres together in this first of many novels, set in the border country between England and Wales where she grew up in the turbulent mid 1100s and featuring Brother Cadfael, a former veteran soldier now a monk in his sixties, and well versed both in herbology and in solving mysteries, she single handedly created the now flourishing historical mystery subgenre Before that, the only historical mysteries were Sherlock Holmes pastiches The appeal of the series comes mainly from the character of Cadfael himself wise, shrewd, caring, a bit mischievous, and endued with a gentle, life affirming faith much like Pargeter s own It also comes from her appealing depiction of the 12th century world, her sympathy with her characters, and her optimistic and moral view of the world Writers, she once said, need to depict evil but for them to take pleasure in evil is mortal sin Here, the Welsh born Cadfael finds himself brought along as an interpreter on his prior s expedition into Wales to extract the bones of a saint venerated as holy relics from the unwilling congregation of the little country parish where she s buried But when the most vocal opponent of transferring the bones turns up the victim of a murder, Cadfael finds himself called on to dothan translate The solution of the mystery will demand detective ability, but this is only part of the picture Pargeter has stated that she was never attracted to the purely intellectual puzzle type of mystery, so as much of the focus here is on the human drama of the characters and their interactions

    The first of the Brother Cadfael novels by Ellis Peters, which I have just discovered is a pseudonym for Edith Pargeter, a Welsh woman by birth and a historian by nature I would not have suspected that these stories were written by a woman because she captures the brothers of the Shrewsbury Abbey, a Medieval enclave of male figures, perfectly, From the stuffy, overblown Prior Robert to Brother Cadfael himself, every character is believable and interesting You soon realize that it takes all kin The first of the Brother Cadfael novels by Ellis Peters, which I have just discovered is a pseudonym for Edith Pargeter, a Welsh woman by birth and a historian by nature I would not have suspected that these stories were written by a woman because she captures the brothers of the Shrewsbury Abbey, a Medieval enclave of male figures, perfectly, From the stuffy, overblown Prior Robert to Brother Cadfael himself, every character is believable and interesting You soon realize that it takes all kinds of make a religious, just as it takes all kinds to make a secular, world Cadfael is a late comer to the calling, a sort of retirement job for him, and that I think is his primary strength He can see both inside and outside the religious community very clearly, and he brings enough of the worldly with him to recognize the emotions and failings of men, even those who claim spirituality Back years ago, when PBS aired its take on the good brother, with Derek Jacobi in the starring role, I watched religiously pun intended Of course, in reading this, I felt I already knew Cadfael and had his face set in my mind I loved the character then, and find he is just as comfortable, level headed, unassuming, and easy to admire in the book version I am looking forward to reading the entire series eventually I suspect I am in for a treat with each one

    This book is actually quite good I must admit though, I had a hard time getting through it In fact, I pretty much had to sit myself down and force myself to read through to the end I ve decided that has muchto do with me than the book itself consequently my high rating The truth is, I just don t like mysteries, and now I know that even by setting the mystery in a fascinating time period, this doesn t change When I was younger, I used to read every Agatha Christi Poirot story I cou This book is actually quite good I must admit though, I had a hard time getting through it In fact, I pretty much had to sit myself down and force myself to read through to the end I ve decided that has muchto do with me than the book itself consequently my high rating The truth is, I just don t like mysteries, and now I know that even by setting the mystery in a fascinating time period, this doesn t change When I was younger, I used to read every Agatha Christi Poirot story I could get my hands on, and I think I burned myself out Most of the time I just don t care about whodunit This leaves the magnetism of the detective to carry the story, which recently just hasn t been enough.For people who love mysteries though, I think you will love this Peters writes very well She uses dialogue to bring her characters to life, and it s great I was surprised at how funny this book was Cadfael is simply a GREAT character Peters also captures the 1100s with insightful details into monasterial life I think so many authors forget how powerful and important the church truly was during this time This same attention to detail was used on the inner workings of a medieval Welsh village too So many books just make out the villagers out to be ignorant clods, but Ellis is muchgenerous than that, giving everybody arounded feel Everybody has a different agenda and a different motive, and Cadfael is able to work this out quite clearly and succinctly.Maybe someday I will be in the mood to read another Cadfael book, but I think I m going to skip historical mysteries for a while I do believe this is the cr me de la cr me of historical mysteries though
