I just love this book!
It‘s been a while since a book has made me feel this entertained but I just really enjoyed reading it. It was fun and at the same time it made sure that I kept thinking I knew who did it just moments before realizing I was wrong once again 😅

Fun and clever murder mystery set in a retirement community and featuring four septuagenarians who may be slowing down physically but whose mental acuity (and connections) are unparalleled. https://cannonballread.com/2023/01/the-thursday-murder-club-elcicco/

I read The Thursday Murder Club as a digital ARC, then bought the paperback for hubby, as he doesn‘t do digital books.

But, I was looking at my shelves earlier this week and thought I could do with a hardback copy to match the other two.

I popped into the local charity shop, purely to drop books off, you understand, when lo and behold, what did I spot?! Yes, you guessed it, an almost pristine hardback copy of The Thursday Murder Club for Q9.50!

A delightful murder mystery. I had so many warm fuzzy feelings reading this book. Yes, there is a murder to be solved, but the dry humor and the character interactions made me feel like I was part of a cozy British mystery show with all the sassy septuagenarians as the investigators. I hope my retirement community will be as cool as theirs.

Dnf. I don't dnf books often. I have even read absolute drivel to completion. Sometimes, I wonder if I am a closeted masochist. But, even a masochist has a pain threshold and mine has probably reached its brink....(continued in comments)

nathandrake1997 ....Earlier today, I started Richard Osman's THE THURSDAY MURDER CLUB. This is my first "warm and cosy/feel-good/lighthearted" read since attempting to read the literary disaster that was THE SPANISH LOVE DECEPTION (I couldn't make it past the tenth page) back in February. I understand that not all kinds of art need to be heavy and brooding. But, what can one say of art that is vapid?.... 3mo
nathandrake1997 ....A lot of these "candy colour covered feel good" books disguise prose as bland as the blandest slice of red velvet cake in a "cosy and comforting" pill in an attempt to pull a fast one on the reader. It is also worth contemplating that the colour scheme of the cover of these books is eerily identical.... 3mo
nathandrake1997 ....Coming back to THE THURSDAY MURDER CLUB, the yawns began barely two pages in and after preventing my kindle to fall on my face multiple times, I decided I'd rather throw in the towel than deal with a thud on my face.... 3mo
See All 10 Comments
nathandrake1997 ....The quality of the prose here feels like an uncomfortable recap of the kind of vanilla prose usually found in these books, also I used the word "vanilla" quite hesitantly because vanilla is a deliciously layered and complex flavour, something prose of this kind shares absolutely zero ties with.... 3mo
nathandrake1997 ....Three espressos later, I still struggled to keep my eyes open and once I left the ring for good, I gulped down two more espressos to shake myself from the lethargy Osman's prose induced.... 3mo
nathandrake1997 .....The last book of this kind that I read to completion was the abomination that was THE AUTHENTICITY PROJECT back in November 2021. When I finished reading that travesty, I had decided that I was done with this sub-genre for good and bow my way out. But then, Penguin decided to gaslight me by sending multiple book bloggers a boxset of Richard Osman's work. That piqued my curiosity and surprise surprise, curiosity killed the cat!.... 3mo
nathandrake1997 .....Described often as a "cozy fireplace mystery to be enjoyed with a cup of hot cocoa", I was luckily not reading this beside a fireplace, otherwise my Kindle probably would have been in flames. 3mo
TrishB Did you like it though 😁 there‘s a place for all books, but not in your house for this one I guess! 3mo
CarolynM Different strokes for different folks. Your sense of humour is obviously different from mine. 3mo
Bklover This made me laugh! I‘ve bailed on this one three times. Thank goodness I‘m not alone. I keep thinking I need to read it because I paid for it and everyone else likes it! 3mo

I can‘t put my finger on what it was that couldn‘t capture my attention. I read until page 180 because I just kept waiting for something interesting to happen, but realized I was putting off reading other things because I was fighting this one. Maybe I‘ll try again some other time…

What a fun book! I love the premise: Four people living in a luxury retirement community in Kent, England form a club to look into unsolved murders (a founding member is a former cop and kept records). Then they have a murder in their own backyard….

Quirky, witty and a good murder mystery to boot. I‘m a happy camper. Will definitely read the next one.

Sadly, this was the only book I completed for Deweys and #outstandingoctober readathons.

This was a delightful, classic British murder mystery with elderly sleuths at the helm. It would make the perfect PBS series. I appreciated the laughs, like the elderly take on Tinder and Grindr. I am not far behind them! I thought the characters were excellent and the plot twists were cleverly orchestrated.

Unpopular opinion, but this one just didn‘t hold my interest. The Man Who Died Twice became available from the library, so I downloaded this one to listen to it first. It wasn‘t necessarily bad, but I had a hard time keeping track of all of the characters on audio, and ultimately found myself not really caring, so I bailed…

It is so great to read a book that‘s gotten a lot of buzz and find that it is thoroughly enjoyable. The dialogue is full of humor without being cloying. The central characters, living in an upscale retirement village, are older (as am I) but whip smart, with great back stories. They gather to discuss cold murder cases. Bit of a trope, but it works here. When someone kills the smarmy owner they investigate. Good twists, fun plot, great read.

In a quiet retirement community, the Thursday Murder Club examines and solves cold cases. Everything changes when the body of a real estate developer drops.

This was fun, but a little weird. We change POV very often, and there end up being multiple mysteries that interconnect and then separate. The characters were all interesting, although I didn‘t like Elizabeth. This did give me Christie vibes, focusing on people rather than clues. 🌕🌕🌕🌗🌑

A quintessentially British cozy murder mystery. Full of well developed and likeable characters. I did not find events confusing, as other reviewers have said - however I‘m a pretty slow reader, so I really digest what I‘m reading before moving on.

Lighthearted British humour throughout, also with some very poignant truths that had me nodding my head at the wisdom. I would definitely read the others in the series.
