I am really enjoying this series
What made the experience of listening to Mourn Not Your Dead the most enjoyable?
I enjoy this book and this series because for me it balances the best of the old fashioned mysteries (Christie, Allingham, Sayers) with the more realistic and psychological aspects of recent mysteries. The characters have depth and the stories look at difficult issues, and in the end I feel good and hopeful about the world. I think this is a conscious choice of the author. She has characters discuss old mysteries in several books and she talks about how mysteries can renew our faith in justice and the potential power and influence of individuals. For me, these books do that.
Who was your favorite character and why?
I love both Duncan and Gemma. I like the way their relationship is developing. For me there is a nice balance. We see their struggles and faults and mistakes, and we also see them learn from them. I for one feel hopeful.
What about Michael Deehy’s performance did you like?
I forget I am listening to a narrator. I am just in the story.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
None that I can describe without risking "spoiling" it for others, but I will say, I felt much empathy for several characters throughout.
Any additional comments?
Really good solid mystery series. I have yet to guess an ending . Each story is a good mystery and I am enjoying getting to know Duncan and Gemma as the series progresses.
