Description

Brought to you by Penguin.  

The highly anticipated return of Jackson Brodie, ex-military, ex-Cambridge Constabulary, now private investigator, "a hero for men and women alike." (The Times)

Jackson Brodie has relocated to a quiet seaside village in North Yorkshire, in the occasional company of his recalcitrant teenage son Nathan and ageing Labrador Dido, both at the discretion of his former partner Julia. It’s a picturesque setting, but there’s something darker lurking behind the scenes.

Jackson’s current job, gathering proof of an unfaithful husband for his suspicious wife, seems straightforward, but a chance encounter with a desperate man on a crumbling cliff leads him into a sinister network - and back into the path of someone from his past. Old secrets and new lies intersect in this breath-taking new novel, both sharply funny and achingly sad, by one of the most dazzling and surprising writers at work today.

Critiques

"Jason Issacs - best known for playing Lucius Malfoy in the Harry Potter films - [is] a popular and adept narrator, who has done all five Brodie novels with great flair. This book has all Atkinson's genius hallmarks: funny, sad, heartwarming and gripping." (Daily Mail)

Lots going on!

There are so many story lines coming together in this book, that I was a bit confused for the first third of it. The story goes back and forth on itself depending on which character the narrator is portraying. Once I figured out the who and what, I really enjoyed it! There is a level of sardonic humour that I loved, and the little twists and turns held my interest. I'd probably give this a 3.5 if I could, but it is more of a 4 than a 3,

Jackson Brodie: my favourite protagonist

But I can only give this (so far) final instalment 4 out of 5 stars because he's aging too fast. And as he ages he becomes more curmudgeonly and less ... less inspired, I suppose.
Or maybe inspirational.
Jason Isaacs is utterly marvellous at reading these books. I'm perfectly sure he's marvellous at reading anything at all; and to be able to actually see him as Brodie in the BBC's series would make me happy forever. But who knows if the Australian Broadcasting Corp. will buy it ?!
Kate Atkinsons follows her Brodie style in Big Sky, I'm happy to say; but Brodie himself is less the frontman and more a member of the cast. I do understand that she does all this deliberately; and that she is writing him out of her life before he becomes another Peter Wimsey - although her works are already far, far more than Sayers'.
Basically, I haven't enjoyed a character this much for as long as I can remember. Sean Duffy is probably my previous favourite, but has been usurped in the queue.

Absorbing and entertaining

Another great read from Kate Atkinson with wonderful narration. Some lovely touches of humour throughout lightened the mood. Highly recommended.

Bewährte Atkinson-Kost

Woran erkennt man, dass dieses Buch von Kate Atkinson stammt? An der kunstfertigen (manchmal auch ein bisschen gewollt kunstwilligen) Art, wie die Handlungsstränge miteinander verwoben werden, wie Gedankenstrang und direkte Rede ineinander übergehen, an der liebevoll gestalteten Miniatur-Biografie, die jeder Figur mitgegeben wird und an der feministischen Grundnote, die sich wie immer durchzieht. Man liebt seinen Jackson Brodie und will ihn so, wie man ihn aus den bisherigen Bänden auch schon kennt, und so kriegt man ihn auch. Dass die Atkinson dabei vielleicht ein paar Nebenstories zu viel hineingemischt hat verzeiht man ihr ebenso gern wie die moralische Schwarz-Weiß-Malerei oder den Zufall, den sie mal wieder über Gebühr bemüht hat, um alle Plot-Fäden am Ende zu versäubern. Ihre Motive sind sind ehrbar und das Produkt gute Unterhaltung . Schließlich ist das hier nicht der große Roman des 21. Jahrhunderts, sondern eine gute Räuberpistole für lange Herbstabende.
