Thursday Murder Club, The

Osman, Richard

  20 Reviews

So much for lazy days dozing in the sun! The Jigsaw Room at Coppers Chase is being put to good use by the Thursday Murder Club: Elizabeth (something to do with espionage), Joyce (a former nurse), Ibrahim (a psychiatrist), and Ron (a trade unionist through and through) are testing their mettle with cold cases, abruptly upgraded to an active case involving their very own retirement village. With the strategic (but unofficial) inclusion of the ambitious P. C. Donna De Freitas to the mix, they are ready to put their formidable nous and experience to excellent use.

Fast-paced, clever and so very British, this is a highly entertaining story with murder and mirth cheek by jowl.

Most of our ladies really enjoyed this book. Some got a bit lost at the end! Was a fun read and made some of us feel we could enjoy living in a retirement village with a Murder Club!

Some members of our group enjoyed this book more than others. Some felt confused by the number of different characters.

Nearly all our group loved this book for its humour, clever portrayal of characters, and twists and turns in the plot. A couple found it trite with stereotypical characters.

Enjoyed by everyone although some thought there were too many subplots/divisions. Led to discussion of 'ageing" and the freedom it gives you to be and do. And of course, lots of discussion of Retirement Villages!!

This book took a number of us some time to get a sense of what it was all about. As we got deeper into the book it became more enjoyable.

Some members thought it was the best book they'd read in ages! Funny, relatable and characterisation very good.

Mixed reviews from the group on this one. All agreed they could relate to the characters and thought the author was clever with his observations of them. All thought it was an easy, fun read. However, while some thoroughly enjoyed the book and were excited to read the sequels, others thought it was a little slow and tedious and perhaps a little light, and wouldnt recommend it to others. Overall, the score was a 3.0 / 5.

Half of us enjoyed the book, its humour and memorable characters - keeps you guessing to the end! Half felt the book wasn't the right fit for them.

Half the group read the book and enjoyed it. The other half didn't finish the book as it did not draw their attention.

A lively humorous discussion on 'The Thursday Murder Club'. Great, quirky characters - a complex mix but maybe a few too many red herrings. A very clever author - we enjoyed it and are keen to read the other titles in the series.
