I enjoy Maisie Dobson books. I spend my time working out how old she is. She solves crimes in an interesting fashion. A tv series would be fun. ( )

I always enjoy hearing from Maisie Dobbs. The 16th book in the series was a good story, but I do wish the characters would stop drinking, and serving each other a cup of tea in every fourth paragraph. It got a little tiresome. But I do look forward to the next one. Why do all the Brits move to California (Winspear)? Is Britain really so awful? ( )

I started book 1 with a friend and we were able to read the first 5 books. I read this last book over what would have been her birthday.

Great book for thinking about being ruled by fear or fear getting in the way or of not being at all ruled by fear. The subject felt very close to home for me so extra meaningful. I suspect I’m nearly alone here but I sometimes do get tired of nothing but happy endings in novels. Of course, in this book they come hard won and honestly and they’re not unrealistic so I don’t have major quibbles with them at all. My partly negative feelings are more a reflection of my own life, not of the book’s story which is superb, and my primary feelings of even the endings are actually positive.

This book #16 had an excellent mystery and particularly wonderful additional characters. As usual, I enjoyed all the returning/regular characters.

As with all of these books there is much that is amusing even though the books aren’t comedic.

This book has two dog deaths, dogs I loved from previous books. Luckily there is a new dog too.

Ever since the Return to Munich book there has been at least one American character. I hate the way the narrator of the audiobooks does an American accent. I never read just an audiobook but I sometimes listen at the same time as reading an e-book or a paper book. Since book 6 I’ve read most of these with e-books with audio books accompanying.

As usual the author’s note/extras at the end are wonderful.

Some quotes I liked:

“Children should always be believed until proven otherwise.”

“Fear was the scariest of emotions and it nestled there, growing ever stronger and sprouting shoots, a seed in the fertile soil of doubt.”

“Never let fears get in the way of happiness, because fear can lead to such irrational reasoning, and we can make dreadful mistakes, saying things we can’t take back.”

“And as she grieved, she realized that she had never trusted the world to keep herself or those she loved safe. From the moment of her mother’s death, she had known that terror could be around the next corner at any moment. Had there ever been a time when she felt the clutch of fear in her gut loosen its grip, so that she could have faith in the future?”

“And fear is really the most omnipresent of emotions, isn’t it? Fear and panic can be crippling for all concerned.”

“Hatred, revenge—they’re just as bad as trying to protect yourself from more hurt—they can make you brittle inside. And if you’re brittle, you break. One way or another, you break.”

“I believe it’s called ‘irrational reasoning.’ It’s what happens to people when they’re scared”

“It’s funny how things work out, isn’t it? I mean, it’s like dominoes—you touch one and then the others start to go, and sometimes they fall in the right direction and one person knows another and it all opens up like a flower.”

Is this the last Maisie Dobbs book? If so I’ll miss this series but feel I will feel satisfied having gotten to read all of the books. If it’s not the end I’ll look forward to future books and hope that I’ll be able to read them. A friend who read it recently thought this would be the last book because of the way it ended, and I’ve seen others make the same conjecture, but I can easily imagine this series continuing. I do see a book scheduled to be published in 2022, [book:A Sunlit Weapon|57355070], that doesn’t necessarily look like another Maisie Dobbs book. I’m curious about it and have shelved it on my to read shelf.

The tearing up of the letter killed me but 4-1/2 stars rounded up. ( )

Maisie Dobbs always delivers. I love these novels. The only thing that bothered me was that the bombings in the last book were so real and you felt the danger. Here bombings were mentioned but you didn't feel they were happening. It was like everyone was ignoring it. I know from reading The Splendid and the Vile that people did ignore the bombings to go on with their lives, but it still bothered me. I always wonder if each book is the end and then something happens and we know another book will be needed. Same with this one. ( )

For the first time ever, in reading the Maisie Dobbs series, I came away feeling uncomfortable with my thoughts that somehow I was missing something here. There was just too much going on and things were getting muddled. Always, though, I remain an ardent fan of Jacqueline Winspear and am now re-reading the book with perhaps more attention than I gave it first time around.

What I should be paying attention to is the title. ( )

I am amazed with your storytelling, great job! If you allow, may I share your book to facebook in order to reach more readers? And by the way, NovelStar is currently conducting a writing competition - You have a great potential.
