I forgot you'd talked about doing this. I know I have one Wentworth but I don't think it's this one. I'll check and see and then get back to you about joining the buddy read.

Once I checked Amazon I realized why I didn't get the first in the series. I'm going to pass on the buddy read and eventually try one of the later Miss Silver books.

Uh-oh... any trigger warnings??

I didn't run into anyone complaining about racism or sexism. But apparently Miss Silver doesn't figure very prominently in first book. I guess Wentworth didn't develop her character into a full fledged series until eight or nine years later. A couple of fans of the Silver books said they probably wouldn't have continued with the series if they'd started with the first one and recommended persevering or picking up a later installment to begin with.

Ah, ok, that's good to know going in. Thanks. :)
All of Christie's Miss Marple mysteries are at least in part (and some of them, even in whole) narrated from one of the other main characters' POV instead of Miss Marple herself, which surprises some who have first come to the series via the TV adaptations. And, FWIW, Margery Allingham's Campion isn't the main character of the first book where he appears, either. So now I'll be even more interested in finding out how Wentworth first introduced Miss Silver! :)

I won't be doing a re-read, but I can barely wait to see how this shakes out amongst participants!

This is great - I had no idea we'd have this many people interested at such short notice - woot!
Yey -- so many more! Way cool!
