Bad, only gets points for the interesting perspective. I like reading a book from the elderly point of view.

maybe I'm just stupid, but I COULD NOT keep these characters straight in my head lol. I kinda just gave up and enjoyed the book regardless

So. There were some good and bad things. Generally, mostly good though! The characters are loveable and interesting--I'm excited to see more of them. All the back stories made sense etc. Etc.

But. There were SO MANY red herrings. Like, an incredible number. The plot was hyper-complicated because of it. I think the book could have been shorter and better. And while I know mystery as a genre is trying to evolve: coming up with new and interesting ways to, well, kill people, as well as to trick the reader; this seemed over done and a bit annoying. I continued to feel confident and then it all got torn out from under me. And that's the point I know, and I did enjoy it, I just think it could've been better.

So fun, and weirdly made me feel hopeful about what life as a pensioner could be like

The definitive “cozy murder book”, I will definitely read all of these - I’m hooked! Everything tied up perfectly. Lots more potential in these characters. Looking forward to seeing the film adaptation.
