A strange book - murder mystery, dark comedy, fable and myth - all intertwined and led with comedic character by the village single, retired engineer. Deeply troubled, anxious about the state of the world and with a strange relationship with animals, she plays the role of sleuth well as villagers turn up murdered. Her wit and unique voice are translated so well. It was a slow start - but once it got going i hove the world she showed us.

DGRachel Yay! I'm glad you stuck with it. This is one of my favorite books this year. 1d
Mitch @DGRachel yeah - I really didnt warm to it in the first 50/60 pages. But then I looooved her! (edited) 1d

Monday morning commute. I‘m about half way through and I still don‘t really know what to make of my book clubs pick???

BookwormM I loved it 4d
Hooked_on_books It‘s a bit of an odd book, but I liked the humor in it, which doesn‘t always come through in a translation. I have to say, the cover of your edition is rather dull. 🤭 4d
Mitch @Hooked_on_books I hate the cover! And I hate that the cover doesn‘t help me set the tone of the book! I‘m liking her - love her eccentricity but finding it slow going ..... 4d

DGRachel I absolutely loved this one! I loved the MC and the ending was fantastic. There were parts that were slow, but something about the writing and the little gems of humor kept me going. I agree that your cover leaves a lot to be desired, but I don't know that my cover really set a tone either. I hope it grows on you! 4d
Emilymdxn I adored this one but I get that it could be a bit of a marmite one. The ending changed my opinion of it a lot, I hope you like it once you get to the ending! 4d

A near perfect blend of meticulous research, great storytelling & the character of McNamara herself. The violent crimes unfold as we see the life of the researcher unfold - late nights glued to the computer, developing relationships with law enforcement & travelling the state to connect with internet sleuths. McNamara was clearly passionately dedicated to this case - that passion to hunt down every clue comes across so well in her words.

Really interesting exhibition celebration the writing, life and cultural icon that is Doris Lessing - described in 2007 (when she received the Nobel prize) as “ The epicist of the female experience, who with scepticism, fire and visionary power has subjected a divided civilisation to scrutiny”.

Mehso-so

Three strands of story - intertwine to get to a solution to creates more questions than answers - not your standard mystery! The self claimed best detective in the world is charming, broken and no stranger to hard living. Eccentric plotting, some weird old fashioned language, and some very bizarre scenarios - it was both hard boiled mystery and Victorian Sherlock Homes inspired drama. Never read anything like it!

charl08 Sounds like fun! Adding it to the wishlist. 2w

I was in awe of these driven, intelligent women, who let their creative brains fill with possibilities in a world that didn't nurture, support or allow. Amazing in their professional fields, inspiring in their capacity to lead themselves, their community and their families. The author's close connection to this community really shines in a well written, complex look at the central contribution these women had on the fields of math & engineering.

Loved this interconnected set of stories. Heartbreaking stories - of abuse, violence, neglect & poverty, coupled with resilience, wisdom, strength & moral character - women as fighters and survivors. There's a feeling of hidden mysticism around the women and their effect on the universe. Written with compassion, lyrical eye for detail these glimpses into the life of these characters leaves you wanting to spend much more time with them all.

A good month! Very crime heavy, from what you need to do to survive when the climate has collapsed 100 years into the future to family loyalty and corruption on East Texas.

I‘ve been shocked by the amazingness of some short stories and felt deeply saddened for the women of copper county.

Telfer is such a good story teller. Each woman‘s disturbing yet compelling story is told with wit and compassion. She separates facts from mythology well. It sparked some thoughts around how history has changed our relationship with these horrific crimes and how the retelling off each story owes a moral responsibility to really do it right. Both of these themes Tefler draws out in the conclusion.

Chrissyreadit How is the book? It sounds interesting. 3w
ElizaMarie I really loved this one! It had little quick stories that I found myself reading during lunch or when I had a quick break. It was super interesting all these evil women! 3w
Mitch @Chrissyreadit really liked it! She‘s sensitive to ensure the cases are presented carefully - but she doesn‘t loose sight of the power of storytelling! 3w

Mitch @ElizaMarie just finished it - really loved it to. Although on some stories I wanted her to go deeper and flesh them out - novel length! 3w
Chrissyreadit Stacked! 3w
ElizaMarie I totally get you! Some of them did warrant a deeper dive :) 3w
