    The Lighthouse MOBI ê Paperback lighthouse free, The Lighthouse PDFThe Lighthouse is the 13th mystery novel by PD James to feature her detective Adam Dalgliesh The penultimate one in the series it was published in 2005This particular novel brings to mind much earlier ones featuring Dalgleish such as The Black Tower from 1975 where the action takes place on a Dorset hilltop or the even earlier 1971 novel Shroud for a Nightingale set in a student nursing school PD James usually chooses fascinating locations for her novels One such location is Larksoken the setting for her novel Devices and Desires Set in a nuclear power station on an isolated Norfolk headland on the East Anglian coast this novel typically lends itself to exploring wider perhaps darker issues Sometimes the settings are identifiable although in The Lighthouse the island described is very much like Lundy Island All such novels hinge on a favourite device of the author's a murder which takes place in a closed almost inaccessible community In this case the community is l

    The Lighthouse MOBI ê Paperback lighthouse free, The Lighthouse PDFI was a great fan of PD James long ago when she was the latest thing and she seemed far erudite than her rivals But gradually I lost interest as her writing became turgid pompous and needlessly detailed My wife recommended that I try this one but James put me off from the first sentence Could this be self parody? Commander Adam Dalgliesh was not unused to being urgently summoned to non scheduled meetings with unspecified people at inconvenient times but usually with one purpose in common he could be confident that somewhere there lay a dead body awaiting his attention Brevity and clarity were apparently not the goals here Most of the action takes place on a small island off the southwest coast of England an island that James describes in detail three times in the first 100 pages But when I tried to draw a map she did not provide one I ran into multiple inconsistencies The murder victim is found hanging from a lighthouse the outside of which James describes twice as

    The Lighthouse MOBI ê Paperback lighthouse free, The Lighthouse PDFThe perfect type of murder mystery in a secluded location with a limited number of suspects another in the Adam Dalgliesh series that slowly builds the tension that concludes with a strong final sectionAs famous novelist Nathan Oliver is found hung on the secluded Combe Island of the coast of Cornwall it seems like a clear case of suicideBut the famous writer had no reason to commit suicide and on closer inspection it appears that foul play as at handIt’s down to Dalgliesh and he’s team to investigate the deathA highly enjoyable mystery that gets better and better as the team delves further into the investigation James has created both interesting side characters and a perfect atmospheric setting

    The Lighthouse MOBI ê Paperback lighthouse free, The Lighthouse PDFYet another good story of PD James This story was a modern take on Agatha Christie’s “And Then There Were None” So if you haven’t read that read it before the James bookWhen you do read this one make sure you can do it in one sitting This story

    The Lighthouse MOBI ê Paperback lighthouse free, The Lighthouse PDFLove PD James and obviously she's a great writer but her books even though nominally set in the present day always seem very old fashioned to me I feel like you could have almost a PD James drinking game around everything that doesn't seem like it belongs in this century LikeTake a sip every time someone Writes a letter Eats a home cooked meal have two sips if it's made by an actual personal cook Employs a maid laundress butler or other personal servant Talk about something that happened during WWII two sips if it's something secret and dangerous that happened during WWII three sips if this secret is the key to solving the mystery

    The Lighthouse MOBI ê Paperback lighthouse free, The Lighthouse PDFDNF edpage 50P D James is praised as the New Queen of Murder but honestlyI just can't get myself through the first 50 pagesthese first 50 pages do not even both to show us much of the main players in this murder mystery and I have absolutely no interest in the MC Adam Dalgliesh he and his voice in this story is so fucking boring Will return this book to the library tomorrow

    The Lighthouse MOBI ê Paperback lighthouse free, The Lighthouse PDFI found this latest installment in the Dalgliesh series rather cold and disjointed James' usual skill at plotting is in evidence but perhaps because I haven't read the two or three before this one I found myself uninterested in the personal lives of most of the characters The prose is always poetic in a particularly English reserved kind of way but usually I find the

    The Lighthouse MOBI ê Paperback lighthouse free, The Lighthouse PDFOn a remote island off the coast of Southwest England used as a getaway by the influential the famous novelist Nathan Oliver is found one morning murdered hanged from the topmost railing of the island's fastidiously restored lighthouse Since there were fewer than a dozen people on the island at the time and since it's unlikely anyone could have come ashore secretly the task of solving the murder would seem a simple one for Alan Dalglish and his crew Yet lots of old coals have to be raked over and a great deal of James's cumbersome prose negotiated before the fairly u

    The Lighthouse MOBI ê Paperback lighthouse free, The Lighthouse PDFThis is the first mystery novel I've read I have to say this author has a decent vocabulary enough to use words like etiolated atavistic soubriquets in proper context and not have them stick out like a sore thumb She also uses a few metaphors and decent geography details Speaking of details however what is it with the room descriptions? Every room in the manor and five cottages is laid out in detail the exact angle of every chair in relation to the windows fireplace doors the patterns on the wallpaper etcetcetc Since non of this is important to the story why do it? Mid book I've had enough suspect enquiries all eight of them at least four pages long and saying the exact same thing I didn't do itBoring
