The Mapping of Love and Death af Jacqueline Winspear

    Pardonable Lies af Jacqueline Winspear (robertgriffen)
    robertgriffen: Pardonable Lies is another in the Maisie Dobb series by Jacqueline Winspear and like all this series is a well crafted and enjoyable book which I found very difficult to put down. Anyone who enjoys a mystery story based around real events immediately following the First World War will find this whole series absolutely fascinating. Try to start with 'Maisies Dobbs and then work yor way through the series. Each book connects with the previous and has a link to the next. The latest the Mapping of Love and Death is an excellent story, the latest in this series. Hopefully there will be more to come.… (mere)

I’m getting kind of sick of WWI stories, especially now that this book’s present time is 1932. I’m actually looking forward to what will hopefully be WWII stories and I hope that WWI will be (mostly) left behind in future books, and the sooner the better.

I was interested in the storylines from the start though.

I enjoyed the brief appearance of California in the U.S. even though it was nowhere near me and included unfamiliar terrain.

I’ll definitely keep reading. I love seeing what happens with everyone, not just Maisie. It looks as though things are about to get even more exciting. Fascinating stuff!

Right now I’m feeling very envious of Maisie. I suppose that most readers want to witness happy, good, lucky things happening to main characters and I do too but sometimes I wish that some characters don’t have their lot improved. It would be more like real life, I think. I will say though that what does happen in this book makes perfect sense and the series story is moving along in an incredibly satisfying way.

I really love Maisie, and I also enjoy most of the other characters, and will greatly miss some characters, though I have a feeling the reader will get to revisit them in brief flashbacks.

I do wish that one thing in this book had been wrapped up but maybe it will be in future books in the series.

I think the main reason why this series of books aren’t exactly page turners for me is that they have such long chapters. My preference is to end each reading session at the end of a chapter and it’s easier for me to start a chapter if it’s not a big time commitment.

This book was one of my favorites so far. 4-1/2 stars

I read a Kindle e-edition and an Overdrive audio edition, my favorite e-formats, both borrowed from my public library. ( )

This is a well-written novel that feels authentic for its post-WWI setting but I was a little disappointed at the lack of actual detective work. Much of it happens off-panel or is dependent upon coincidence, such as when someone just happens to know someone. I also had a hard time remembering who some characters were, but maybe that's just because my mind is often elsewhere these days.

I picked up this book because it was one of Harper's Olive Editions but although the central mystery is complete here there is a considerable amount of continuity regarding Maisie and her supporting cast that follows on from previous novels. I wonder why they didn't just go with the first book. ( )

Another wonderful story. I love the growth of the characters involved and look forward to seeing more. ( )

From the moment I met the character of Maisie Dobbs, I loved her and couldn't wait to see her succeed. There is determination, resilience, and perseverance within Maisie that is inspirational.

Each of the novels in the series can be read as a stand-alone but particularly for this series I encourage readers to follow the progression of the series not only to see how the character of Maisie Dobbs evolves over the years but also for her assistant Billy, and the relationship with Maisie's long-time mentor Maurice. It is now 1932, and Maisie is called upon to solve a case from the past which gives fascinating insight to the role of cartographers as needed in WWI.

As always, Maisie is juggling her professional life with a few demands on her personal life from her father, her mentor Maurice, and there may even be some romance in Maisie's life especially if her friend Pris (short for Priscilla) has any input on the matter.

This novel is one of the turning points in Maisie's life and I can't wait to read the next direction to take place both in investigations and in her personal life created as always by Jacqueline Winspear. ( )
