Their Lost Daughters - Joy Ellis, Richard Armitage

I am really enjoying this book. Excellent narration aside, this is just a really good book.It's like a British crime drama in book form. I'm not sure if that makes sense.

 

The next two audiobooks in this series are coming out in October and I've already preordered them.

 

Also, Richard Armitage could narrate the phone and I'd be completely enthralled.

The Storyteller (date unknown) by Vittorio Reggianini (1858-1938) [x]

Six Feet Under - Dorothy Simpson

Well, Thanet did manage to redeem himself by the end, though it took way, way too long.

 

The resolution to the mystery involved a bit of a deus ex machina type situation in that

Thanet suddenly remembered he's seen a known petty criminal in the crowd at the murder scene, and that he suspects the criminal witnessed the murder, and lo and behold he did. Of course, by this point, Thanet had a sudden revelation the night before while in bed in which he figured out the murderer, but needed proof. He then remembers the petty criminal.

(show spoiler)

 

These aren't horrible books, and they're well written, I just don't think they're for me. Moving on now.

Six Feet Under - Dorothy Simpson

This is a hoopla borrow that returns tomorrow, and I may not finish it. I'm mildly interested in finding out the mystery behind the victim and her murder, but Thanet is irritating me in regards to his attitude about his wife wanting to return to work once their son starts school. I'm trying to remind myself that it was originally published in 1982, and even though that wasn't that long ago, attitudes have changed a lot since then.

 

It's not helping a lot, though.

The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde - Robert Louis Stevenson, Richard Armitage

I think I've probably said this before, but it bears repeating: Richard Armitage should narrate all the things.
