I m a huge British mystery fan, I can t help it, it s a joy I cant escape in any format book, TV, or movie Inspector Morse is my all time favorite TV show, and for some reason I had not read through the novels before This book is superb I thought I knew what was happening from the first season episode of the same name from 1987, but Mr Dext
One of the better books in this series so far The plot revolved around a congregation of a high Anglican church and perhaps was a bit extreme but it was enjoyable reading how Morse was able to solve the various crimes. Redeeming factors competently, at times even engagingly written reasonably complex plot although the main surprise is a common enough twist in whodunnits that I was considering it from fairly early on and a nice touch in that Morse doesn t get everything right, not even at the end That may be enough to get many readers through the book, perhaps even with considerable pleasure Dexter also gets an extra quarter star for using Oxford spelling and commas, and for having the protagonist ins Redeeming factors competently, at times even engagingly written reasonably complex plot although the main surprise is a common enough twist in whodunnits that I was considering it from fairly early on and a nice touch in that Morse doesn t get everything right, not even at the end That may be enough to get many readers through the book, perhaps even with considerable pleasure Dexter also gets an extra quarter star for using Oxford spelling and commas, and for having the protagonist insist on such fine points of letters But Dexter is locked into in the prejudices and preconceptions of an era that, one would have thought, had already passed by the mid 1970s Indeed, he seems to revel in the biases of a time that should have been bygone when he was writing In Dexter s world, men with a sexual preference for other men are immediately presumed to be pederasts There are no exceptio
Questo Sellerio un apostrofo giallo sospeso tra le due sponde di un orrido privato Piacevole e per di pi produzione letteraria extra professionale di un uomo colto che, per invidia, nei miei remoti sedici anni avrei tacciato per erudito Come in realt feci scrivendo alla lavagna nell intervallo tra una lezione e l altra, per il prof di filosofia che sarebbe arrivato poco dopo un motto di B Shaw La differenza tra un uomo colto e un erudito
In attesa che la Sellerio le ripubblichi tutte, Luca ha comperato da una signora siciliana un indagine del mitico Morse in realt due, l altra in coda di lettura con lo sfondo di una Oxford campagnola una in cui si legge, per dire, della donna che va a fare le pulizie in chiesa in bicicletta e delle case con la porta laccata di blu e il vialetto costeggiato da erbacce Mai, nemmeno in una pagina, c caduta di interesse e anche se si fatica ad intuire l assassino o meglio, non lo si capi In attesa che la Sellerio le
As usual I don t think Dexter gives the reader enough information to be able to solve the case themselves.Quite a complicated case with the question of whether the body identified as Rev Lawson was actually him.The bodies seemed
The fourth Morse book.I did not enjoy this as much as some of the others as I found the plot so convoluted that I had to keep stopping to remind myself who was doing what, where and why Even when I finished I could not have repeated the actual plot to
