Started Early, Took My Dog - Kate Atkinson


I think this is my favourite Jackson Brodie novel yet. Scrap that, it's my favourite Kate Atkinson novel full stop. It has everything I've come to love about and expect from her novels; wonderful prose, great characterization, intelligence, humour, humanity and poignancy but this one seems to have an added lump in the throat. And it really got me. These characters, especially the kid, the dog and poor old Tilly, will stay with me for a very long time.

Thanks to Kim for another excellent buddy read :-).

Case Histories (Jackson Brodie Series #1)
Case Histories (Jackson Brodie Series #1) - So I didn't like the Masterpiece series based on this character of Jackson Brodie, but I felt I should give the author a try. I'm glad I did. I like the inversion, the floating thoughts of the characters, the fact that Atkinson doesn't think readers are stupid. Enjoyable.

Started Early, Took My Dog (Jackson Brodie Series #4)
Started Early, Took My Dog: A Novel - Kate Atkinson

Jackson Brodie is eternally likable, and Atkinson writes consistently compelling mysteries featuring him and a host of charismatic characters, intricate plots that come together in surprising ways, and stories concerned with place, women, and children. I found this particular novel to be a bit slow to start and loose all around, with perhaps one or two too many characters serving too small a function. But her work is still the only mystery or crime-type fiction I read because she's such an excellent writer!

One Good Turn (Jackson Brodie Series #2)
One Good Turn - Kate Atkinson I didn't enjoy this one as much as case histories. It was a much more insecure Jackson Brody.
