  1. Suffering from Morse deprivation on the TV I decided to reread all Colin Dexter s novels, in order this time This first one, Last Bus To Woodstock I found a little disappointing It is very much of its time as regards prevailing attitudes to women, and Colin Dexter s masculinity is rather too present In fact it feels rather oldfashioned even for 1975like the late 60 s It would be interesting to see if this series is still around in another couple of decades time.Having said that, i Suffering from Morse deprivation on the TV I decided to reread all Colin Dexter s novels, in order this time This first one, Last Bus To Woodstock I found a little disappointing It is very much of its time as regards prevailing attitudes to women, and Colin Dexter s masculinity is rather too present In fact it feels rather oldfashioned even for 1975like the late 60 s It would be interesting to see if this series is still around in another couple of decades time.Having said that, it is a fiendishly good plot and I doubt very much whether I would have remembered the perpetrator of the crime had I ...

  2. The first book in the series that brought us the great television series starring John Thaw as the irascible yet brilliant Inspector Morse, a spin off with Inspector Lewis and a prequel series, Endeavour, leaves me, well, underwhelmed As a police procedural it is okay but not something that will remain long in my memory To its credit, the plot was sufficiently complex to keep me guessing, incorrectly, until the very end I expected Morse to be quirky yet brilliant I guess he was that but ther The first book in the series that brought us the great television series starring John Thaw as the irascible yet brilliant Inspector Morse, a spin off with Inspector Lewis and a prequel series, Endeavour, leaves me, well, underwhelmed As a police procedural it is okay but not something that will remain long in my ...

  4. It s summer I m reading mysteries and this was grand As I reflected a day later, though, on the characters, I thought of how every single man, despite his flaws, was an engaging character of some sympathy, even the young man addicted to porn His mother loved him, remember But the women, without exception, were protrayed in a negative light None of them seemed lovable I checked the publi...

  5. This is the first book of a series of Detective Chief Inspector Morse It was well written and kept the attention of the reader The plot was very difficult to follow But, the writing was so interesting and captivating you as the reader had to keep reading until the end Chief Inspector Morse appears to be dumbfounded and Sergeant Lewis seems to be at his wits end w...

  6. It s a bit hard to rate this book One the one hand there are things that make it quite clear that this book was written in the 70sand by things I mean some blatant sexism While it fortunately never goes so far to blame the murdered girl for getting murdered it becomes quite clear that both Morse and Lewis clearly disapprove of her lifestyle choices i.e being sexually active and there are somne cringeworthy conclusions she didn t wear a bra Perhaps she was a prostitute which l It s a bit hard to rate this book One the one hand there are things that make it quite clear that this book was written in the 70sand by things I mean some blatant sexism While it fortunately never goes so far to blame the murdered girl for getting murdered it becomes quite clear that both Morse and Lewis clearly disapprove of her lifestyle choices i.e being sexually active and there are somne cringeworthy conclusions she didn t wear a bra Perhaps she was a prostitute which leave a bad taste.Now it s arguable if you can blame a book for the time it was written in and it s probably not wo...

  9. I was unsure of what to expect when approaching Colin Dexter Would he be an heir of Christie, Sayers, even P.D James Would this book be a murder mystery, a police procedural, a combination, something else entirely It was a combination, as it turned out, and a pretty decent one at that.I recently reviewed P.D James s Cover Her Face, in which I didn t really mention the police procedural aspect of the storytelling I wonder whether that was the turning point for detective fiction when the de I was unsure of what to expect when approaching Colin Dexter Would he be an heir of Christie, Sayers, even P.D James Would this book be a murder mystery, a police procedural, a combination, something else entirely It was a combination, as it turned out, and a pretty decent one at that.I recently reviewed P.D James s Cover Her Face, in which I didn t really mention the police procedural aspect of the storytelling I wonder whether that was the turning point fo...
