An Easy Death Reviews
This is not my bag. I had a hard time dating this one. I couldn't tell when it was supposed to be happening. We are finally told, but the setting doesn't give you any real idea...we only know because we're told. DNF at 15%.
Terrific book. Impossible to categorize, but that's part of its appeal. I'm already looking forward to future entries in this series.
Look what just landed on my doorstep! Looks very interesting - the only question is how and when to fit it into my already overstuffed reading schedule.
I might get this from the library and try it. I like alternate histories - plus magic.
But... still not over Sookie. :P
Strong start to a new series.
I’ve read and enjoyed most of Charlaine Harris’s books, and even if I was disappointed in how she ended her Sookie Stackhouse series, I was curious to try this new one. Harris already has demonstrated that she writes in a variety and mix of genres, and this new Gunnie Rose series is quite different from all her others.
The story takes place in an alternate history, in approximately the 1930’s after the US was devastated by assassination, flu, and civil war, with the f ...more
This one just wasn't for me which is odd as I adore Charlaine Harris. (Midnight Crossing and Sookie as well as some of the early mysteries and Harper is one of my all time favourite series)
I'm actually sorry that I feel this way as the new Charlaine H coming out each year has been one of my annual book highlights for close on 25 years.
I think it was a combination of two quite unlikeable main characters, some very poor, slow dialogue and that I couldn't get a solid handle on the world. Oh and add ...more
I like this author, her series are always so different from each other at times it’s hard to believe it’s the same person writing them.
I really liked the world that this book was set in. An alternate history, the US fractured into different countries during the time of Franklin Roosevelt. The world a harsh place and magic is a real thing, although not trusted, its users more so.
Gunnie Rose lives a hard life, her job, to lead others to safety a dangerous one, one with not a long lifespan. Altho ...more
Hooray! If, like me, you loved roughly 1/2 of the Sookie books (the beginning 1/2) but found the rest sort of meh (but still kept on reading) you will like An Easy Death. Same for the rest of her series, love some and are annoyed by the others (but still kept on reading). An Easy Death had me putting off chores so I could spend all my time with my new gunslinging girlfriend, Lizbeth. Oh boy, oh boy, I'm surely looking forward to this kick-ass series and its alternate history line.
