"After losing his leg to a land mine in Afghanistan, Cormoran Strike is barely scraping by as a private investigator. Strike is down to one client, and creditors are calling. He has also just broken up with his longtime girlfriend and is living in his office. Then John Bristow walks through his door with an amazing story: his sister, the legendary supermodel Lula Landry, known to her friends as the Cuckoo, famously fell to her death a few months earlier. The police ruled it a suicide, but John refuses to believe that. The case plunges Strike into the world of multimillionaire beauties, rock-star boyfriends, and desperate designers, and it introduces him to every variety of pleasure, enticement, seduction, and delusion known to man" -- from publisher's web site.… (més)

    Case Histories de Kate Atkinson (keywestnan, debbiereads)
    keywestnan: I listed Case Histories but I'm really recommending the entire Jackson Brodie series by Kate Atkinson. They are excellently written private eye novels that are especially excellent when it comes to character.

Enjoyed this. The first half kept a good pace, the second half dragged a bit as the plot got a bit bogged down in detail but recovered before the end. A good story - may well read another although hope there's a bit fewer celebrities and handbags...... ( )

The author's writing is too insightful and wonderfully descriptive to label this as what other reviewers are calling a run of the mill mystery. That being said, I was expecting to be surprised by the ending and unfortunately I wasn't. I still enjoyed this book and look forward to more by JK Rowling/Robert Galbraith.

Some quotable quote favorites:

“The dead could only speak through the mouths of those left behind, and through the signs they left scattered behind them.”
― Robert Galbraith, The Cuckoo's Calling

“Sense entered into a short, violent skirmish with instinct and inclination, and was overwhelmed.”
― Robert Galbraith, The Cuckoo's Calling

“You're like everyone else, Strike; you want your civil liberties when you've told the missus you're at the office and you're at a lap-dancing club, but you want twenty-four-hour surveillance on your house when someone's trying to force your bathroom window open. Can't have it both ways.”

Genialer Krimi. Sehr spannend, ich konnte das Buch kaum weglegen. Wunderbare Charaktere, detailliert gezeichnet, sehr liebenswert. Keine logischen Fehler, völlig undurchschaubare Story – vielleicht das erste Mal bei einem Krimi, dass ich bis zum Ende komplett auf der falschen Fährte war. Sehr gute Sprache.
Der einzige Vorwurf, den man Rowling machen kann, ist, dass Strikes Geheimniskrämerei nicht sehr überzeugend ist. Aber natürlich ist das auch nötig, um den wahren Mörder vor dem Leser geheim zu halten.
Der beste Krimi, den ich seit langem gelesen habe. ( )

This was an okay book. Not very special, in fact it was quite boring, no suspense, not much action or things that make a book great, a pageturner. It went on and on and on and that was it.
I finished it because I dislike not finishing a book, except when it's really horrible.

I'm not sure if I'll listen to the next book in the series and then read the third. I'm not really interested enough in the characters that walk around in the novel. ( ( )

I really enjoyed this. I enjoyed the word crafting - that sort of thing always pleases me. I found I went back and forth a little to check details in the story, and I *still* didn’t guess “whodunnit”. I found a lot of the details read in a very authentic way, having had a friend with a recent prosthetic limb, I saw exactly the same comments from the character as those said by my friend. I believe this novel must’ve been thoroughly researched. ( )

Ublodig, men ikkje blodfattig
Når Harry Potter-forfattar J.K. Rowling går til krimmen, satsar ho meir på person- og miljøskildring enn på å dikte opp utspekulerte drapsmetodar. Det er heilt ok.

In “The Cuckoo’s Calling” Ms. Rowling — er, Mr. Galbraith — seems to have similarly studied the detective story genre and turned its assorted conventions into something that, if not exactly original, nonetheless showcases her satiric eye (most in evidence in the Potter books in her portraits of the bureaucrats and blowhards associated with the Ministry of Magic) and her instinctive storytelling talents.
afegit per zhejw | editaNew York Times, Michiko Kakutani (Jul 17, 2013)
 
The Cuckoo’s Calling and Harry Potter both feature dead or absent parents, adoptees, and family intrigue. They both imagine highly complex worlds that are nonetheless knowable—if you study their laws closely—and amusing, and beautiful, and dangerous. If I’m honest, though, I liked Galbraith just a bit better than late Rowling. (The first four Harry Potter books still reign supreme.) While both writers are funny, suspenseful, and sharp about race and class, he seems under less pressure to take himself and his story seriously. I wonder why.
afegit per zhejw | editaSlate, Katy Waldman (Jul 16, 2013)
 
There is no sign whatsoever that this is Galbraith’s first novel, only that he has a delightful touch, both for evoking London and for capturing a new hero. It is an auspicious debut.

Why were you born when the snow was falling?
You should have come to the cuckoo's calling,
Or when grapes are green in the cluster,
Or, at least, when lithe swallows muster
      For their far off flying
      From summer dying.

Why did you die when the lambs were cropping?
You should have died at the apples' dropping,
When the grasshopper comes to trouble,
And the wheat-fields are sodden stubble,
      And all winds go sighing
      For sweet things dying.

                  Christina G. Rossetti, "A Dirge"

The dead could only speak through the mouths of those left behind, and through the signs they left scattered behind them.
The white-painted boutique stood on some of the most expensive acreage in London... To Strike, its colorful windows displayed a multitudinous mess of life's unnecessities. ... a gaudy celebration of consumerism he found irritating to retina and spirit. (page 184-5)
