The Brutal Telling (Armand Gamache Novel) by Louise Penny
The Brutal Telling (Armand Gamache Novel)

paspa, January 14, 2013

Louise Penny always has fascinating stories to tell. Her cast of characters are, for the most part, people you would like to know and welcome into your life. Chief Inspector Gamache is such a thoughtful, caring man. I would want to work for him. This book strays a little from the typical detective genre. From the mystery of the murder to the solving of the case, I still wasn't sure that Gamache got this one right. It wasn't until the following book, Bury Your Dead, that I came to realize the truth.

Bad Monkeys (P.S.) by Matt Ruff
Bad Monkeys (P.S.)

paspa, December 10, 2010

This book is a good light read. It's a mystery conspiracy with a touch of sci-fi and plenty of plot twists to keep the reader involved. Is Jane Charlotte really part of a mysterious crime fighting group or is she just delusional? And who are these bad monkeys? It's a fun trip to find out the answers. Just when you think you understand, things change.

The Monsters of Templeton by Lauren Groff
The Monsters of Templeton

paspa, January 29, 2010

I couldn't put this book down and I was sad when I finished it. A young woman is trying to find her father by searching her family tree. Each chapter is written from the point of view of different people. It is like having a compilation of short stories all tied together by this one descendent...and don't forget the monster!
