The Cuckoo’s Calling by Robert Galbraith (AKA J.K. Rowling) was a fun book to read. J K Rowling does have a way with words. I kept reading sentences that would have sounded awkward if I was writing them and wondering at the easy way they fit the flow of the prose. That said, the book is a little wordy. I like for my mysteries to be about 350 pages. This one is 455. The mystery is what I call a ‘fair” one; the clues are all there, you just have to put them together as the detective does. I have to admit that I had rejected the actual murderer as a suspect early on & did not know who it was until the very end. Well done, Galbraith/Rowling! I hope to read more about Cormoran Strike in the future. Join the New Haven “Those Witty Brits” book club on Wed. February 19th at 7:00 for a discussion of The Cuckoo’s Calling.
