Judith has been reading Death by Didgeridoo by Barbara Venkataraman


My Review:

This is a short, straight-forward murder mystery; easy to read. Overall, it is well written and the pace is steady. The characters are well portrayed  (and unusual!) within the action of the book but I would have liked more character development; to know their backgrounds and have more insight to their personalities.  I liked the way the  protagonist, Jamie Quinn, is  shown with her dark humorous outlook on life but I never really felt I understood the character and struggled to have any empathy with her. .

  1. Hi Judith. Thanks for this review. I love the book’s title.
    I like that you described your reaction to the book from two different perspectives. Depending on my mood I might enjoy it more (or maybe less). Also, as a writer, I found your comments on the book to be educational reminders for me.
    Have a lovely weekend. Mega hugs!


    • Hi Teagan, Thank you so much for tasking the time to write your comments. I do try to be fair.
      I’m trying to interview all the authors who will be at the Tenby Book Fair this year on my site. It’s something I organise every year, so between that and my own writing (which has been sadly neglected for ages) I’m only managing to read the posts I’ve been following and share by tweeting. Just wish there were more hours in the day.
      Oh, and I’m reviewing for #RBRT. Have you sent any books through to her? Jx
