READ Literally Dead (Pepper Brooks Mystery #1)

Literally Dead Pepper Brooks Mystery #1E help of a handsome library clerk a dog named Hamburger and The Bard himself this unlikely sleuth might just close the book on this ca. This is my review of the audio version as posted on AudiblePepper Brooks is an English major and she loves Shakespeare she's my kindred spirit so I was prone to like her from the start But that's not why I like the book a lot Oh and it's 45 stars for the story not 40 reallyThe idea of using literature as one of the tools in a murder case is not a new one but it always catches my eye And it's very well used in this particular book uotes from Shakespeare as clues to revealing who the culprit is and the fact that you really have to know your Shakespeare to realize something is wrong with them is just perfectThe plot develops fast and as we follow Pepper in her investigation we start to feel as confused as she is as to who why and how There are a lot of clues a lot of motives and a lot of grudges going on around Unfortunately for her Pepper is uite compulsive and jumps to conclusions a bit too uickly for her own safety luckily there's Alex to take care of herAs characters go Pepper is spontaneous likeable and has that naive charm of a twenty something dreamer Alex is at first confusing but very soon turns into a chivalrous safety net for her and the secondary characters both good and bad ones are colourful and memorableThe interpretation by Ms Chervony is really good The pace of her reading is uite fast but clear and the personalities of the characters very well conveyed I especially liked the voicing of Pepper; her emotions rang true and really helped us understand the workings of her mindDISCLAIMER I was given this free review copy audiobook at my reuest and have voluntarily left this review
