Pales in comparison to Malliet's other novels
This was an okay listen. It's well narrated, and the characters are fun, like Malliet's other St. Just novels. However - this one really left me feeling flat. It seems to get tied up too quickly, without really having left proper clues. It's as though the author got tired of writing and said, "well, I'll just make this character be the culprit". The characters also were not as well developed as in some other books by this author.
Like I said, it was ok, but if you haven't read G.M. Malliet before, I'd suggest Death of a Cozy Writer (St. Just) or Wicked Autumn (a Max Tudor mystery).

Americans are stereotypes, and not good ones!
Would you listen to Death at the Alma Mater again? Why?
Good story, but the Americans portrayed are such jerks, and such cliched stereotypes, it is laughable. Better to leave them out.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
