Career of Evil de Robert Galbraith (2015)

  1. 40
    One Good Turn de Kate Atkinson (keywestnan)
    keywestnan: The entire Jackson Brodie series by Kate Atkinson is excellent but this one, set during the Edinburgh Festival, may be my favorite. Like Galbraith/Rowling, Atkinson's Brodie series excels at making characters who are entertaining, fallible and fascinating.… (més)

Privatdetektiven Cormoran Strike og hans sekretær/medhjelper Robin Ellacott løser mordgåter i London. Dette er virkelig gode bøker. Du får en umiddelbar god følelse for Strike og Robin og du heier dem gjennom bøkene. Rowling skriver godt, og bøkene er virkelig godt oversatt, så her er det bare å skaffe seg bok 1 med en gang. ( )

Removed my rating because it's no longer accurate-- I can't enjoy this book knowing it's written by someone currently spreading transphobic hate. I know that's not very "Death of the Author" of me, but that's just how it is.

Trans liberation now. Read trans authors.

The first two were awesome, following a formula perfected by Galbraith--*cough* Rowling *cough*--in the second book. This one, however, throws all that out the window to try something new, and wow, it works!

Career of Evil is a more personal story, focusing on the private lives of Strike and Robin. The stakes are much higher this time, hitting close to home, especially in a sequence that left me terrified and worried for one of the protagonists. Even more so, the story flows well with the multitude of characters and events all happening at the same time.

One thing struck me though and not in a good way: the ending. It felt forced and wasn't what I was expecting at all. The epilogue was interesting, though, which made up for the somewhat bitter taste the serial killer reveal had left.

Truth be told, I highly enjoyed this one, and I believe you'll too. ( )

Well damn. I enjoyed the hell out of the first two Cormoran Strike novels--though, really, I think these are much more the Robin Ellacott novels, to be honest--but this one just busted through and kicked the ass of first two in the series.

The writing in this one seemed tighter. It might be that the four diverging storylines--the reemergence of Strike's hated stepfather, the psycho stalking Robin, Robin's rollercoaster relationship with Matt and their impending wedding, and finally, the mystery of the murderer--seemed very personal this time.

Both Strike and Robin's characters were expanded in leaps and bounds in this novel, and the villain was excellent.

If I have any complaint, it's Robin's constant inferiority complex about her job with Strike. After watching the business grow and successfully assisting in closing two high profile cases, as well as Strike investing in her training up to now, it's the only thing that seemed to ring false. No one, going through that much success, should be that much constantly in fear of their job.

Other than that, this was an absolutely excellent book, and now I'm stupidly excited for the next one. ( )

Another great Strike novel. Vivid prose, page-turning plot, rich characters, what more could you ask for? ( )

“A leg?" repeated Detective Inspector Eric Wardle on the end of the line. "A fucking leg?"
"And it's not even my size," said Strike, a joke he would not have made had Robin been present.
