    DOC ☆ TEXT Case HistoriesFREE Case HistoriesI wasn’t sure what to expect from Kate Atkinson’s Jackson Brodie series I have read three of her other novels and as I said in one of my reviews if I could be an author I would want to be Kate Atkinson – or at the very least be able to write with her vast toolbox of

    DOC ☆ TEXT Case HistoriesFREE Case HistoriesThis should actually get two stars only but me and Kate Atkinson go way back I read her 'Behind the Scenes in the Museum' when I was a newbie to the grown up literature and I loved it I am uite afraid to go and revisit it now because after reading 'Case Histories' I am not sure if Atkinson can actually writeThis is some sort of psychological dramacrime story so you don't expect the writing to knock you of your feet However uite often I read that Atkinson writes 'literary crime fiction' and that is an overstatement at best And if it isn't an overstatement then I really don't want to read the non literary crime fictionThe main character is Jackson private detective who is trying to resolve 3 or 4 different cases at the same time There are constant changes of POV and we are

    DOC ☆ TEXT Case HistoriesFREE Case HistoriesThis is the first in Kate Atkinson's Jackson Brodie series and is a reread for me I first read this many years ago and I still harboured dim and distant vaguely unsatisfying memories of the book this time I found it a much better experience the cold case mysteries slotted together with greater ease on a second reading One of the mysteries of course is Jackson himself a retired ex cop with an ex wife and a daughter that lives with her mother and now working as a PI He unravels murders that took place long ago the seemingly disparate cases interwoven in a narrative that goes back and forth in time turn out to have connections Atkinson gives us nuanced understat

    DOC ☆ TEXT Case HistoriesFREE Case HistoriesI first read this many years ago and although I know I enjoyed it very much I could not remember any details at all It all came back very uickly once I started readingCase Histories is a very apt title as the book starts with three very different cold cases each apparently independent of the others As the book progresses the wonderful Jackson Brodie appears and in his hands it turns out the cases are not completely separate after all Brodie is an excellent character who gets by despite life throwing endless obstacles in his pathI enjoyed the way the book ends with the author summarising each of the cold cases and letting the reader know the real truth about each one One of them in particular gave me uite a shock and left me unsure whether Jackson Brodie himself was aware of all the details of the crime Kate Atkinson always writes so well that her books are a pleasure to read Onwards now to book 2 because I can never have too much Jackson Brodie

    DOC ☆ TEXT Case HistoriesFREE Case HistoriesThis is one of the best detective novels I have read in a really long time Set mostly in Cambridge England it's the story of a private detective as he tries to solve three cold cases I mean REALLY cold the most recent crime is still 10 years old as they all interweave and mix in with personal life In theory the plot is nothing special; some missing persons and mu

    DOC ☆ TEXT Case HistoriesFREE Case HistoriesWell I finally finished this one It's hard when you have so little time to read In the beginning I thought the story was a bit slow and I couldn't get in the story very well but I guess that's my own problem reading no than a few pages each day having to read back all the time to get into the story again The last days I spent time with this book and found the interwoven stories uite special as well as the way it all comes together I love Jackson And the stories and characters are weird special interesting So in the end it's a 35 to 4 stars book for me and I will have time hopefully to read the next books of Kate Atkinson

    DOC ☆ TEXT Case HistoriesFREE Case Histories45★ “Right up until the end Victor’s mind had been as methodical as an efficient library whereas Amelia felt that hers was like the cupboard under the stair where ancient hockey sticks were shoved in beside broken hoovers and boxes of old Christmas decorations and the one thing you knew was in there – a 5 amp fuse a tin of tan shoe polish a Philips screwdriver – would almost certainly be the one thing you couldn’t lay your hands on”Kate Atkinson has a satisfying knack of presenting a character in a sentence and a lifetime in a paragraph Victor was Amelia’s mathematician father and he gets his own sentences and paragraphs tooThere are a few separate case histories here all set in Cambridge where Jackson Brodie is living unhappily ever after we hope not He’s a former soldier former cop now a priv

    DOC ☆ TEXT Case HistoriesFREE Case HistoriesI'm less enthusiastic about this book than Nikki I certainly enjoyed the author's wry humor; her characters were both thoroughly imagined and presented with great empathy; and her detective was uniue I also appreciate authors trying to stretch the mystery genre and find ways to alter its railroad track kind of plotting All to the good But her attempt at plot manipulation was confu

    DOC ☆ TEXT Case HistoriesFREE Case HistoriesI really really disliked this book I was ready to put it down by page 20 but slogged on If this was supposed to be a literary thriller it failed miserably on both accounts On top of Atkinson's cliched writing style there were multitudes of plot strands that were ridiculously and not credibly interwoven; many parents again not credibly indifferent to their children; a toll of murder death attempted murder rape and sexual abuse that had risen almost too high to count by the end gratuitous would not be overstating it; facile uirkiness and dysfunctionality that was supposed to pass for richness of characterization; endless plot twists large and small and character shifts that felt like being jerked around A self loathi
