    This should actually get two stars only but me and Kate Atkinson go way back I read her Behind the Scenes in the Museum when I was a newbie to the grown up literature and I loved it I am quite afraid to go and revisit it now because after reading Case Histories I am not sure if Atkinson can actually write.This is some sort of psychological drama crime story, so you don t expect the writing to knock you of your feet However, quite often I read that Atkinson writes literary crime fiction This should actually get two stars only but me and Kate Atkinson go way back I read her Behind the Scenes in the Museum when I was a newbie to the grown up literature and I loved it I am quite afraid to go and revisit it now because after reading Case Histories I am not sure if Atkinson can actually write.This is some sort of psychological drama crime story, so you don t expect the writing to knock you of your feet However, quite often I read that Atkinson writes literary crime fiction and that is an overstatement at best And if it isn t an overstatement, then I really don t want to read the non literary crime fiction.The main character is Jackson, private det...

    This is one of the best detective novels I have read in a really long time Set mostly in Cambridge, England, it s the story of a private detective as he tries to solve three cold cases I mean, REALLY cold the most recent crime is still 10 years old as they all interweave and mix in with personal life In theory, the plot is nothing special some missing persons and murder cases, and the details are revealed as the story develops, and the detective s personal life is a mess and someone is tr This is one of the best detective novels I have read in a really long time Set mostly in Cambri...

    I m less enthusiastic about this book than Nikki I certainly enjoyed the author s wry humor her characters were both thoroughly imagined and presented with great empathy and her detective was unique I also appreciate authors trying to stretch the mystery genre and find ways to alter its railroad track kind of plotting All to the good But her attempt at plot manipulation was confusing at first and eventually just annoying She told three or four, depending on how you count different murde I m less enthusiastic about this book than Nikki I certainly enjoyed the author s wry humor her characters were both thoroughly imagined and presented with great empathy and her detective was unique I also appreciate authors trying to stretch the mystery genre and find ways to alter its railroad track kind of plotting All to the good But...

    What a joy it is to not only discover an author I haven t read before, but to read a book which I did not want to put down That is the effect that this novel had on me As a long time reader of crime fiction, it is also a joy to read such a literate and character driven mystery, which does not fit neatly into any particular crime fiction sub genre While crimes are committed and a detective is there to solve them, neither the crimes themselves nor their resolution are what makes the novel live What a joy it is to not only discover an author I haven t read before, but to read a book which I did not want to put down That is the effect that this novel had on me As a long time reader of crime fiction, it is also a joy to read such a literate and character driven mystery, which does not fit neatly into any particular crime fiction sub genre While crimes are committed and a detective is there to solve them, neither the crimes themselves nor their resolution are what makes the novel live and breath...

    I really, really disliked this book I was ready to put it down by page 20, but slogged on If this was supposed to be a literary thriller, it failed miserably on both accounts On top of Atkinson s cliched writing style, there were multitudes of plot strands that were ridiculously and not credibly interwoven many parents again, not credibly indifferent to their children a toll of murder, death, attempted murder, rape, and sexual abuse that had risen almost too high to count by the end gr I really, really disliked this book I was ready to put it down by page 20, but slogged on If this was supposed to be a literary thrill...

    Definitely a page turner And one that relies not on plot alone, but on character development much , which makes it my kind of page turner I truly didn t ever want to put it down I ended up feeling that I knew these people and missed them when I was finished Atkinson is deft at handling several complex storylines and, as only some of the characters stories end up overlapping at least as far as they know , I appreciated the realism of some events being known by only the reader I also en Definitely a page turner And one that relies not on plot alone, but on character development much , which makes it my kind of page turner I truly didn t ever want to put it down I ended up feeling that I knew these people and missed them when I was finished Atkinson is deft at...

    This book falls under 2 genres mystery and family drama and I would argue that it is muchthan the sum of its parts Every character was incredibly real, incredibly flawed, and incredibly complex Having said that, Case Histories feels like a light read because of Atkinson s great wit Atkinson has a talent for weaving together 3 seemingly unrelated stories, all with themes loss, innocence, and healing While many of the characters are female, the central character is Jackson...

    To be honest, I thought this book was a bit of a mess The subject matter was often compelling and I deeply appreciated her focus mostly on character rather than plot which was an especially good choice not only because it played to Atkinson s strengths in psychological drama, but because was pretty easy to guess the resolution of each plot not long after it appeared She does fairly convincing atmosphere, too And she definitely committed to her unlikeable characters until the end.But it s on To be honest, I thought this book was a bit of a mess The subject matter was often compelling and I deeply appreciated her focus mostly on character rather than plot which was an especially good choice not only because it played to Atkinson s strengths in psychological drama, but because was pretty easy to guess the resolution of each plot not long after it appeared She does fairly convincing atmosphere, too And she def...
