Chief Inspector Armand Gamache and his team of investigators are called in to the scene of a suspicious death in a rural village south of Montreal. Jane Neal, a local fixture in the tiny hamlet of Three Pines just north of the U.S. border, has been found dead in the woods. The locals are certain it's nothing more than a tragic hunting accident, but Gamache smells something foul in these remote woods, and is soon certain that Jane Neal died at the hands of someone much more sinister than a careless bowhunter.… (més)

I like mysteries that have a tricky puzzle and an elegant resolution, but I love mysteries that also have evocative settings and richly drawn characters — such as those by Deborah Crombie, Donna Leon, Anne Zouroudi, and Alexander McCall Smith. The action in Louise Penny's series is constrained to a remote village in Quebec, yet the characters are fairly cosmopolitan and diverse. Some of the tension between anglophone and francophone culture is explored, as is the question of how to live one's life — stay still, or remain open to change? I'm also reading The Clothing of Books by Jhumpa Lahiri, so I am struck by the rather insipid cover of Still Life, which belies the book's sociological complexity. The later installments have quite a different cover design. In any case, I'm looking forward to reading more of this series. ( )

Story was interesting, the Audiobook narration was horrible on the version I listened to was definitely not good and affected the experience. Narrated by Ralph Cosham, there was from my perspective 0 effort put in the differentiate character voices. It is a good mystery, could be perceived as overly descriptive. ( )

I adore Chief Inspector Gamache! Following him through an investigation made me feel more observant of human behavior. His keen skills of observation contrast with another investigator he tries to teach as his team examines clues in a charming small town where people believe they know each other’s secrets.
Now I am hooked and grateful this is a series. ( )

The beauty of Louise Penny’s auspicious debut novel, STILL LIFE, is that it’s composed entirely of grace notes, all related to the central mystery of who shot an arrow into the heart of Miss Jane Neal,...

She also felt a stirring that suggested she didn't actually like her son. Love, yes. Well, probably. But like?
Evil is unspectacular and always human, and shares our bed and eats at our own table. (From the third verse of 'Herman Melville' by W. H. Auden, quoted by Jane Neal in chapter one)
Every year the hunters shot cows and horses and family pets and each other. And, unbelievably, they sometimes shot themselves, perhaps in a psychotic episode where they mistook themselves for dinner. It was a wise person who knew that some hunters -- not all, but some -- found it challenging to distinguish a pine from a partridge from a person. (Chapter 1)
[Gamache is talking with Myrna Landers]

'The funny thing about murder is that the act is often committed decades before the actual action. Something happens, and it leads, inexorably, to death many years later. A bad seed is planted. It's like those old horror films from the Hammer studios, of the monster, not running, never running, but walking without pause, without thought or mercy, toward its victim. Murder is often like that. It starts way far off.' (chapter 7)
"There are four things that lead to wisdom. They are four sentences we learn to say, and mean."

I don't know.

I need help.

I'm sorry.

I was wrong.
