    Description

    Brought to you by Penguin.

    The first book in the number one best-selling, multi-million copy selling series by TV presenter Richard Osman.

    Read by Lesley Manville, soon-to-be star of The Crown, and featuring an exclusive Q&A between Richard Osman and Marian Keyes.

    In a peaceful retirement village, four unlikely friends meet up once a week to investigate unsolved killings.

    But when a brutal killing takes place on their very doorstep, the Thursday Murder Club find themselves in the middle of their first live case.

    Elizabeth, Joyce, Ibrahim and Ron, might be pushing 80, but they still have a few tricks up their sleeves.

    Can our unorthodox but brilliant gang catch the killer before it's too late?

    CrimeFest Audible Sounds of Crime winner: Best Audiobook 2021.

    Despite good reviews . . .

    I love crime novels but this one was really boring and achingly dull. Nothing original. To many story lines, none of them strong. I only listened to the end because I had to stand in a very long queue for an incredibly long time. So no extra time wasted, fortunately.

    Exquisite

    Loved it, of course. It was different from most criminal fictions and made a fantastic listening. The characters were interesting and the storyline was captivating.

    Listen to this now

    Cannot recommend this book enough. Particularly the characterisation is fantastic, and the setting is equally original. Funny sad and exciting all at the same
    Time

    Every bit as good as I hoped

    I love witty well-observed humour. Love unusual and unexpected heroes. Love a crime novel. So not surprisingly I loved this book so much. Narrator brought it to life in a wonderful way. Made me miss my Mum and grandparents for that gentle humour and politeness. Very jealous. If I could write a book I’d want it to be like this.

    "Talks collapsed late last night."

    The inhabitants of Cooper's Chase Retirement Village might be elderly but they have !let none of their personality traitts and only some of their faculties. And acting forgetful and helplessly innocent can conceal a multitude of sins. When a murder takes place locally, the four members of the Thurday Murder Club replace the cold case files for the current crime, generously allowing the local police detectives to occasionally assist.
    This is a delightful, and convoluted story of misdeeds, friendship, love and death, and very much character led. Written partially in the first person through a quirky diary written by one of the Club as well as being viewed from the perspective of several other protagonists, the reader is gently led through the twists and turns of the lives of all of the characters, good humour oozing generously throughout, to reveal some surprising conclusions. Excellent personality development makes these very varied protagonists real life, living people still very much alive despite, or perhaps because of, their advanced years.
    Narration was by Lesley Manville and, had she been restricted to reading the text alone, she would have been magnificent. With obvious interest in, and understanding of, all she read, her delivery was varied, interesting and emphatic in all the right places. Her female voices were also varied. But her abilities, sadly, did not include male conversations and, though this did not prevent enjoyment of the book as a whole, this reader rather wishes it had been the printed, rather than the audible book which has been read.

    But print or audible, this is one murder mystery not to be missed. Beautifully written, imaginatively plotted and surprisingly uplifting, I am now really looking forward to the next in Richard Osman's series. which is briefly mentioned in the interesting interview with the author at the end of the book. Great fun, deliciously visual, meet some new friends in Cooper's Close Retirement Village.

    VERY DULL

    THE THURSDAY MURDER CLUB.

    No characters pull you in. You don't get interested or invested in them.
    Descriptive. Places, what they do what they think, description of what people feel. Small people comments to each other. Really dull. You don't feel any tension. As dull as a retirement village meeting.
    3 stars
    One situation after another, no link or progression of story or
    Not interesting.
    I tried going forward to see if the plodding Descriptive style continued. I decided not to waste another 10 hours of my life trying to get into a story, a plot, an investment in the characters. Very dull style.

    Six stars and more

    Rarely have I been so entertained by a narrator and enthralled by a story. Truly laugh out loud moments interlaced with genuinely compassionate characters. A wonderful book.

    Reminiscent of Agatha Christie

    A lovely easy read with fun characters. It does tend towards dwelling on the fragility of life and relationships at times, so keep a hanky handy. I would be happy to read more in this series if they are as good as this one.

    Never enjoyed a first-person novel this much.

    I'm not really a first-person POV person but this book kept me listening through in a swift.
    The way the author tells the story through these lovely elders is so smart. He makes you empathize and fall in love with each of them, while the mysterious factor is still there.

    Loved it.

    Entertaining to the very end

    Well- developed plot and characters to keep you upbeat during lockdown. Enjoyable and will hep any reader escape reality. Stay focussed as there are a lot of intrigues, twists and many different characters.

    I really enjoyed the book and the story was gripping, but the interview at the end was awful.

    When will the Thursday murder club become a film?

    This is a perfect plot for Maggie Smith and Judy Dench. Send the book to them and to a good director

    It’s not easy to get old, but there is a kindness in those characters which gives me hope.

    Love the characters, the story and the narration. I read the book it was great. Now the audio book gave it an extra dimension for me to enjoy all over again. Already got the next one.
