Brookmyre for beginners

What did you like best about Where the Bodies are Buried? What did you like least?

The central mystery is really clever and the various story lines weave together nicely. The characters are well imagined. Jasmine Sharp, the wannabe private investigator around whom the story unfolds, is sure to be with us for a while. Having said that, everything is a little too contrived. Brookmyre (who claims to have moved into a more serious, less anarchistic mode - he now writes as "Chris" as opposed to "Christopher") seems to be trying too hard to be conventional. "Where the Bodies are Buried" lacks some of the irreverence and exuberance of earlier works like Quite Ugly One Morning and the Unsinkable Rubber Duckies, but is still well worth the effort.


What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

A little too predictable.


What does Sarah Barron bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The book is really well read with Sarah Barron's Scottish lilt adding a level of atmosphere and intensity that a reading of the book would lack.


Was Where the Bodies are Buried worth the listening time?

Yes.


Any additional comments?

Brookmyre has long been a favourite author and I have both read and listened to all his books. Here's hoping he finds the groove he is looking for.

perfect package!

Great story! I don't know why mr. brookmyre lost the topher to his chris, but i was delighted to find a new book by him, as i`ve read and hugely enjoyed his previous ones. The characters are, as usual, very rich and the storyline comes together nicely. the narrator did, in my humble opinion, an excellent job of giving life to the story, with a nice bit of scottish inflection, not so thick that non-native-speakers like me don't get it, but adding a nice bit of authenticity to a story set in glasgow. an extra bonus to this recording is its length. with a little more than 11 hours, it isn`t over too fast and gives the plot enough time to tighten to the end. and the ending is great, by the way. it ends on a sentence that isn't there....
enjoy!
