This reader enjoyed reading the first four Harry Potter books with her family—reading them aloud to the kids while camping. You know the books are engaging when the kids wanted to listen to the book over burning marshmallows in the fire. This reader listened to the fifth book during long drives to see her hospitalized father. And this reader likes crime investigation mysteries. So Robert Galbraith (J.K. Rowling) crime investigation books are perfect long-distance driving companions for this reader.
This most recent installment of the Cormoran Strike series is the longest and was a perfect fit for a 24 hour drive fest. This reader truly enjoys that the author takes her sweet time with the development of the twists and turns of the mystery plot while describing the daily challenges of Cormoran’s chronic pain driven by his prosthetic leg, Cormoran’s love life, the slow dissolution of Robin’s brand new marriage, and Robin’s joy of doing this investigative job especially as she goes undercover.
This reader looks forward to more Cormoran Strike installments. Likely they won’t be any shorter which is just fine with this reader.
