I finished this one a couple days ago. It’s amazing how J.K. Rowling is able to spin these intricate mysteries of murder with all of these characters interlocked and how she keeps you guessing up until she’s ready to reveal who the bad guy is. She teases you because you think you have it figured out and then she just flips the whole thing and you had no idea it was coming.
One thing about having so many characters is that sometimes it’s a little hard to keep track of the ones on the fringe. The main character has so many friends and acquaintances and some of them have some not very common names.
Plus, I’ve been listening on audiobook, so I have to file it in my mind after it’s been spoken to me by a guy with a British accent.
But anyway, this is a good book, even though it does have a few grotesque parts. Namely, the description of the murder is gross and I was listening to it while I was cooking dinner one night, which was a big mistake.
I’ve started on “Career of Evil” and there’s already plenty to keep you guessing at. I love how we get to see a little more into the personal life of the main characters a little more each book, but there’s still so much you don’t know. That’s how the stories are created.
More on that later,
