Never have I spent 86p more wisely.
It is gentle humour and a rather good plot.
Educational too as i had to dust off my very creaky latin to enjoy some of the more esoteric fun.
In short do buy it throughly enjoed and recommended
The plot is cleverly and lightly delivered with plenty of twists and red herrings. The revelations in both timing and "ah" factor are only lacking a drawing room and a fully assembled cast of characters to be entirely Christie-esque.
I found the many unexplained Latin quotations something of a pain and I went to a school that still taught it. Even if you know the language, it slows the reading down. You can skip these without losing out or there's Google translate if you want to type the whole line in to find out.
Did Anyone Die? marries a bygone era of whodunnit with a very current sort of crime. Good read and best accompanied with a steady supply of very English tea.
The plot is funny and although I won't spoiler it in this review, it's got a lot of unexpected twists. The characters are all detailedly odd, in a very real manner (everyone has their own small circles of chaos) and the portrayal of Oxfordshire is wryly well-observed; anyone who's lived in a small village will recognise a great deal of the features, wherever in the country you're from.
It seems to be leading into a sequel, so my only complaint would be that that isn't available yet.
If you loved the Inspector Morse series and found the quirky villagers of Midsomer Murders irresistible, this series is a must.
"Elodea had a fanatically gardening mother and was named - like both her sisters - from the Latin names in the back of a book of garden plants."
Are Elodea and her Oxford friend Priscilla scatterbrained fruitcakes, or do people really shoot each other at night in the quiet village of Little Wychwood? Sorry, but you will have to read the story to find out.
All I'll reveal is that I dashed through the lovely story in a few hours. And why not admit it; I am still chuckling.
I could have done with a bit more action. Or even a bit of action lol.
It was a decent read, but by the time I got to the end, I wondered what HAD happened if anything.

The book started well and ,I settled back to read what appeared to be a charming, Agatha Raisin type, read. However things slowed to a halt about a quarter way through. Read morePublished on 5 Oct. 2013 by Amazon Customer
