  • The Thursday Murder Club

    I felt I had to listen twice to the first few chapters of the book to take it all in but after that I thoroughly enjoyed it.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Wonderful

    I didn't think I would enjoy this book as I could only see Richard Osman as he is on Pointless. How wrong was I. A thoroughly enjoyable listen. Will certainly be getting his second book.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Excellent Read

    Did not think this book would be up to much. How wrong can you be. Richard has a lovely light touch and jokey style which suited the story. Get your pen out Richard, cannot wait for the next one!

  • Disappointing

    I was excited by the premise of The Thursday Murder Club – a murder mystery set in an English retirement home written by Richard Osman – what is there not to like about that? I enjoyed the characters in the home – Elizabeth in particular is great and well rounded with an air of mystery to her as well. I also really liked how they would play up the assumptions of how old and infirm they were to manipulate others around them. I also liked the police officers Chris and Donna who felt realistic and interesting. I enjoyed Richard Osman’s narrative voice which added amusement to the plot – it definitely felt attuned to a British sense of humour. I did however, find that there were quite a few background characters who then became important later on and I did find it a little hard to keep track of who was who in places. Although the initial murder mystery seemed quite simple, it got a lot more complicated later in the on. I found the plot actually got a little repetitive towards the end and felt like it was dragging – it seemed that we got a lot of long winded confessions that were either not really relevant to the plot at hand or that were outed as lies which was frustrating. I understand that this is a setup to a series but I felt that we actually gave too much away about certain characters in the first book. Overall, I was disappointed by The Thursday Murder Club – although the premise is great, the plot felt repetitive and the multitude of characters became confusing. Thank you to NetGalley & Penguin Books UK – Viking for the chance to read the ARC in exchange for an honest review.

  • Fine

    Light read, nicely written, but it's probably unfortunate that I've read so much Agatha Christie, because I'm afraid the vivid descriptions, style, use of language, characters etc in this pale in comparison to her writing. Fine but pretty anodyne really, not as good as I was hoping for.

    Thanks for your feedback!
