Review: The Brutal Telling

The Brutal Telling
The Brutal Telling by Louise Penny
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Reminder: Two stars at Goodreads means “it was ok,” and that’s what I mean by it. I don’t want to give spoilers, but I was very disappointed in this book, after enjoying others in the series so much. Very long, and an extremely disappointing ending that overshadows everything else that the book did right (great writing, characters I enjoy, a complex and interesting plot). I expected a revelation right up until the very end, and the fact that it didn’t come–well, let’s just say the book could have had basically the same ending at about the halfway point. And I still would have been mad about it. :(
