Just reactions to books I read. I don't really summarize the book's content, because how hard is it to click on the cover and read the description?
So I just write my response.
I don't know, I guess that waiting over a month before I even bothered to buy this one should have warned me that I'm a little bit tired of these books. I used to download/read them the week (sometimes even the same night) they came out.
But obviously I still pay hardcover ebook prices for them, so I guess I'm still hanging in there. I'm not sure I'll keep on bothering with getting them even a month after release, though, because I might need a break from the samey-samey stuff.
The mystery was okay. Nothing exciting, no tension or danger to speak of, but at least a little different. Then again, maybe a bit more tension would have made the samey-samey stuff easier to swallow. I guess I'll go into bullet points.
What I liked:
Wow, that was a short "What I liked" section.
What bothered me:
That said, in this volume, Peabody almost seemed like a caricature of herself. There's always been the funny bits with her craving fatty foods and remarking on pop culture items that Eve is oblivious to, along with her body consciousness. But it was just like IN EVERY SCENE that's all she was. A little bit of detecting, a lot of "oooh, shiny!"
So, yeah. Going to wait on the next one.
