Fun little novel I loved the setup in Cambridge and rew to like the characters So fun once it picked up speed about halfway through Humorous piece of a lighthearted crime story with a neurotic academic and a neurotic and lovingly naive parrot as protagonists I read the original German version of this book and although it took me a bit to find my footing as with all of Ms Swann s books I found Huff s hero s journey to be interesting and compelling I won t Trader avec succes grace au neuro-trading: Les cls psychologiques et comportementale du trader give away much but reading about Huff and Gray s adventures made me want to watch YouTube videos of parrots all day long Telling the story from Dr Huff s a lecturer at Cambridge point of viewave the narrative somewhat of a claustrophobic feeling You never knew if you could trust Huff s reporting He was at sea most of the story and this only added to the tension in my opinion Leonie Swann provides you just enough information at just the right time for you to say ah Now I et it over and over again without it ever feeli. Dr Augustus Huff Dozent an der berühmten Universität von Cambridge hat plötzlich ein #Problem Einer Seiner Studenten #einer seiner Studenten in den Tod estürzt Nur ein tragischer
oder Mord vermutet Letzteres denn das Opfer war alles ,unfall oder mord
Lly loved this book
So Much I Enjoymuch I enjoy Swanns writing style a lot and she creates such funny characters Right from the beginning I #FELL IN LOVE WITH GRAY AND #in love with Gray and Just my kind of humour Detective story with a talking parrot Perfect for light reading A charming campus crime story teaming up a scholar who battles psychological problems with a clever parrot And who wouldn t want to live with a clever parrot after reading this I really enjoyed Glennkill and Garou so picking this book up was an obvious choice and I was not disappointedThe setting is completely different but it is again a crime thriller This time the crime is solved by Augustus Huff a scholar with psychological problems and Gray a parrot with well probably also psychological problems Like sheep and Dante and the Lobster goats in the previous books the characters are charming humorous and interesting The plot has its twists and turns and the setting in Cambridge adds to the atmosphere and to the charm Four stars out of five. Vieh und zuerst stolpert Augustus von einem Fettnäpfchen in das nächste Doch schon bald ist es Gray der die richtigen Fragen stellt und Augustus begreift nuremeinsam können sie es schaffen diese harte Nuss von einem Fall zu knack.
