Best I’ve read

Bruno books are absolutely the best I have ever read/listened to. The incredibly humaneness of Bruno and the enlarging cast of characters, the complexity of emotions, (not to mention the splendid food) make this the finest, deepest felt, satisfying—yet hungry—books I have read.

This series just gets better and better

I always learn something from these books, whether it's a great recipe, information about the French judicial system, or the history of the French resistance in World War II. The characters are engaging and growing deeper all the time. My only caveat is that I'm not crazy about the way the narrator does women's voices. He's handicapped – he's a man. It's not enough to keep me from listening to the next book, but I wish he would be a little less arch in his delivery. Otherwise, and altogether great read/listen.

Too Much effort at political persuasion. Not why I read this series.

Way too much effort at inserting political issues. That’s not why I read or listen to this series. If I want a debate on gay rights or abortion there are more than enough outlets for that. Disappointing that had to be the dominant theme in this book.

Intense, Humane, complex and always satisfying

These stories of Bruno and his community as well as the historical background never disappoint. They are addictive.

Work on American accent

I love the Bruno books. And the narration is generally excellent. However, I recommend that Mackenzie work on his American accent - at least that’s what I think it was supposed to be for the character of Jacqueline. That didn’t sound like any American I ever heard. Much too precise for us Yanks, and seemed to lean Scottish . 😊

Too many Too much

Easy to get lost in. Too many minor characters without adequate development. Too many story lines, many left undone. Too many women Bruno attracted to. Needed a better editing job.

High Hopes but Let Down

I have listened to Bruno mysteries before and I enjoy a complicated plot - when it is justified Sadly, this Bruno mystery uses too many unnecessary complications, seemingly to pad the story. Everything moves very slowly. Also, too many dinners described and too many bottles of wine poured Too many possible lovers for Bruno
Finally, the narrator reads too slowly, too little drama in his voice

Not my favorite Bruno storyline

Captivating to the end

If you're a Bruno fan, there is a big revelation in this story. This has an exciting storyline and interesting plot.
