The Outcast Dead Livre audio | Elly Griffiths | tenrisucsocu.tk
Elly Griffiths has not let us down as the series continues! I look forward to her next book and hope it comes out very soon! I love her accent! Since I am not from the country where the story takes place her accent adds to the authenticity of the book. If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be? I would title it just as the author has I would love to see this entire series in film!!! Thank you for offering Elly Griffiths books here, it was a pleasant surprise to find it available here.
See my review for the previous entry, The Dying Fall.
As far as I'm concerned, A Room Full of Bones is the last audiobook in the series, unless the narrator for The Dying Fall and all subsequent audiobooks is replaced. Having chosen this one based on the other reviews, I am 3 hours in and wondering what book they all read. This is one of my worst choices yet, plot, narration, characterization, all of it. Example 1: The heroine has apparently had an affair with a policeman which resulted in a now nearly 3-year-old daughter. Oh, yes, and Wife adores the little girl her two daughters with the cop are pretty much grown.
Extremely civilized, I admit, but also extremely unrealistic, and without any explanation whatever of how this utopic situation was achieved. Example 2: Main suspect has fled before the police got there, made his way to the heroine's very secluded cottage and has appeared in her kitchen holding her daughter.
Heroine is of course practically paralyzed and then the tot starts shouting "Dada! Without a pause, the narrator starts reading the next paragraph and after a baffling line or two, the hapless listener realizes that the cop is in the room with all of them in the cottage. The author has just skipped all the boring stuff about how the cop, hearing the daughter's voice and the sound of a man's rumble in the background, instantly deduces the situation and throws himself in his car to race to the rescue.
This is explained in a few brief words after he's arrested Main Suspect.
I just started laughing and snapped off the book. The first example leads me to believe that Elly Griffiths is really a man. The second one gives me the impression that he's lazy. In either case, that's it for this one. Back it goes. Her Irish accent for Cathbad is much better for the character as well as the Northern accent voice for Nelson. Hopefully she will return to this series in the near future.
I love this series.
The characters are real people - just more interesting than any I know. The stories have a ring of truth. Fascinating stories, but the continuing story of these people I really like is the best part of all. Start at the beginning of the series and enjoy them all. Can't wait for another! A Victorian Baby Farmer convicted and hanged for the death of a young boy left in her care by his mother is the historic story that Ruth Galloway, forensic physical anthropologist, is dealing with in this, the sixth book in this series.
Meanwhile DCI Harry Nelson is investigating the suspicious death of a baby whose parents are both suspects in the child's death. Children are a big theme in this book in the series, as they have been in past books in this series. Not only is the skeleton of the hook-handed baby farmer Jemima Green, aka Mother Hook, the basis of a local bogy, she is also set to be the subject of an episode of a sensationalistic television show about women who kill. Anyway this is a better than average story read well by Clare Corbett.
She is not idiosyncratic in her style and thankfully does a good job with the accent of a historian from the US who adds some variety to the cast. Many of the characters from previous books make an appearance and the overall story arc does advance a bit. Is hard to hedge the quality of the story, because it is so badly presented.

Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics: Forensic archaeologist Dr Ruth Galloway discovers the skeleton of a long-dead murderess, while DCI Nelson has a new killer on his hands Reviews provided by Syndetics Library Journal Review Griffiths's sixth Ruth Galloway mystery after A Dying Fall opens with the forensic archaeologist attending an annual memorial service for the unknown dead of Norwich, England: "the bodies thrown into unmarked graves, the paupers, the plague victims, forgotten, unmourned..
Now her discovery has propelled the reticent Ruth to appear on the TV show Women Who Kill with her publicity-seeking boss and a very attractive American historian who believes Mother Hook to be innocent. At the same time, DCI Harry Nelson, Ruth's former lover and the father of her toddler daughter, is investigating a mother whose three infants died under suspicious circumstances. His case is further complicated when a kidnapper dubbed the Childminder snatches two children.
Verdict Griffiths's leisurely paced mystery is more of a character study than a pure whodunit; she sprinkles plenty of red herrings that lead nowhere and the ending feels a bit rushed and forced.
