Descrizione prodotto

Sinossi

On a cold November morning, a jogger runs through the woods in the peaceful Quebec village of Three Pines. On his run, he finds a dead man hanging from a tree.
The dead man was a guest at the local Inn and Spa. He might have been looking for peace and quiet, but something else found him. Something horrible.
Did the man take his own life? Or was he murdered? Chief Inspector Armand Gamache is called to the crime scene. As Gamache follows the trail of clues, he opens a door into the past. And he learns the true reason why the man came to Three Pines.
This book is a quick and easy read for people on the go.

5.0 su 5 stelle The Hangman is a special book... 28 gennaio 2012
Di Karen - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle
...written as a novella for "emerging adult readers" as part of a Canadian literacy project. It is written at Grade 3 level intentionally, and is not part of the ongoing series of Inspector Gamache/Three Pines novels. When reviewing the book, please keep this in mind. You can read more about it on Ms. Penny's website, which can be found easily by googling.

I love Louise Penny and am reading her Chief Inspector Gamache novels in order, so I made a chronological list without paying much attention. When The Hangman's turn came up, my local library didn't have it, so I ordered the Kindle version. I started reading it and immediately noticed it hadn't picked up the thread of the previous novels. Now, all of these can be stand alone, but the characters are developed as one goes along, so references to past events are made. I also noticed this one just didn't have that deep level of philosophical thought and character development. Even descriptions seemed a little off. Then I was shocked to find it was so short--a novella--which I hadn't noticed when I ordered it. Now, all this might seem critical of a book to which I awarded 5 starts...but, I discovered AFTER finishing it that The Hangman was actually written for adult new readers and used a lower grade level of vocabulary. Wow! Holding it to that standard was something else. As a retired librarian, I have read several ANR (adult new reader) books and this one was so much better than any others I've read. It did not "talk down" to me and while I missed the usual French words and phrases found in her books, realizing this was also for French speakers to learn/practice English, allowed me to accept that easily. My respect for Ms Penny only grew once I realized she had written an easy-to-read book in English for those learning the language (or just learning to read at all) that was so compelling. We need more ANRs of this caliber.

3.0 su 5 stelle OK mystery, but not worthy of Penny 7 marzo 2017
Di lisaleo (Lisa Yount) - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
If you’ve heard of Louise Penny and wonder why her Inspector Gamache mysteries are so popular, don’t start with this one, or you’ll never know what the fuss is about. This is a novella, really not much more than a long short story, tucked somewhere in the middle of the series. It’s an OK mystery, though I did guess the answer to the puzzle somewhat before the end, but it lacks the trademark character development, both among the series characters and among those specific to each story, that appears in her novels.

The story includes only two of Penny’s police regulars and two of the denizens of Three Pines, her rural-Quebec version of Brigadoon, and it barely hints at the depth in which these characters are presented in the novels. (I particularly missed my favorite Three Pines character, grumpy elderly poet Ruth.) The mystery surrounding the main standalone character (the body found at the beginning of the story) is interesting and unraveled layer by layer with proper deliberation, but that’s about it.

Just before I posted this review, I noticed another review saying that the novella was written for “emerging adult readers” and was kept at a simple reading level intentionally. I don’t remember seeing that before I bought it. I didn’t really notice the lower reading level, only the lack of character development. It may have a place for that particular audience, and my hat is off to Penny for trying to address their needs. However, unless you fit in that category or are such a die-hard Penny fan that you want to read everything she’s written about Inspector Gamache & Co. (which I could understand), I’d still recommend not bothering with this.
4.0 su 5 stelle Quick, entertaining mystery but her longer works are better 3 novembre 2016

Inspector Armand Gamache and His assistant Jean-Guy Beauvoir are back in the village of Three Pines in Quebec, investigating what appears to be a suicide in the nearby woods. A guest from the local spa and inn has been found hanging from a tree. It looks like suicide; a note will even be found in the dead man’s room.

But Gamache isn’t satisfied. There’s no explanation for how the man climbed the tree to see the rope in place. And the dead man’s hands are clean, with no marks from the tree or sap.

And then there’s the question of identity. The dead man is registered at the inn as Arthur Ellis. But that’s not who he is. Arthur Ellis is the name of the 19th- and early 20th-century executioner for the government of Canada in death penalty cases.

“The Hangman” by Canadian mystery writer Louise Penny is a short novel or novella, published in 2010 and something of a break in her string of Armand Gamache mystery novels. The differences are more than length, and may be a function of the short form used for this story.

The novella keeps the setting but employes fewer f the characters from Three Pines (and only Gamache, Beauvoir, and the coroner from the police side). The focus is the mystery – we don’t se any of the personal issues and history involving any of the characters except as it relates directly to the solving of the mystery. In that sense, this is “Penny Lite” instead of the full story we’re used to with her novels.

Gamache and Beauvoir diligently interview and investigate, and slowly the shape of the crime becomes apparent, with a solution buried in the past.

“The Hangman” is a quick, entertaining mystery but I prefer the fuller and more complicated novels.

5.0 su 5 stelle Works for adult learners and all short story fans 27 marzo 2012
Di Dawn - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

As Karen says in her review, this book is part of Good Reads. Since that is listed with the title and I was not familiar with it, I looked it up before I bought the book. It is a great program for adults learning to read to have access to books by top Canadian authors. So, the book is purposely at a different reading level than the other Three Pines Mysteries. And, as the file size indicates, compared to her other books, it is a short story. All that said, it is a great stand-alone short story! It is well-written and satisfying. For an author who usually writes for a different audience, it must be very difficult to adjust the reading skill level. Louise Penny shows her talent again by pulling it off and creating a gem that works for lots of different readers.
