A brilliant mystery in a classic vein: Detective Cormoran Strike investigates a supermodel's suicide. After losing his leg to a land mine in Afghanistan, Cormoran Strike is barely scraping by as a private investigator. Strike is down to one client, and creditors are calling. He has also just broken up with his longtime girlfriend and is now living in his office. Then John Bristow walks through his door with an amazing story: his sister, the legendary supermodel Lula Landry, known to her friends as the Cuckoo, famously fell to her death a few months earlier. The police ruled it a suicide, but John refuses to believe that. The case plunges Strike into the world of multimillionaire beauties, rock-star boyfriends, and desperate designers, and it introduces him to every variety of pleasure, enticement, seduction, and delusion known to man. You may think you know detectives, but you've never met one quite like Strike. You may think you know about the wealthy and famous, but you've never seen them under an investigation like this.… (mais)

    Case Histories por Kate Atkinson (keywestnan, debbiereads)
    keywestnan: I listed Case Histories but I'm really recommending the entire Jackson Brodie series by Kate Atkinson. They are excellently written private eye novels that are especially excellent when it comes to character.

I don’t know if so would have enjoyed it as much if I hadn’t already watched the adaption. Picturing the actor who portrayed Strike in the adaption made some of the questionable and sketchy decisions bearable. ( )

Fun mystery novel with lead characters Cormoran and Robin that I will be happy to see again in another book.

JKR knows how to tell a story and this is no exception. Her characters and descriptions are all great. Truly my biggest beef with the whole book is her excessive use of "the C word". I word I hate so much I won't even type it here. Is this an actual common word in England? I think I can count on one hand the number of times I've heard it spoken aloud here in the US and seeing it in print is far more jarring to me than other curse words. But still, that's a minor complaint.

This book was written by Robert Galbraith though I’m pretty sure that most people know it’s simply a pseudonym used by J.K. Rowling. If you have this knowledge and approach this book with the mindset of Harry Potter, you’re going to be disappointed. This isn’t Harry Potter at all. If you’re looking for Harry Potter, go read Harry Potter. I mean, who wouldn’t want to return home to Hogwarts and visit the characters all over again? This book is something completely different from Harry Potter.

I loved it.

The characters were interesting, the backstory was interesting, and the twist and turns were fantastic. I truly enjoyed this book. There were terms in the book that I didn’t understand but I acknowledge that’s because I’m American and I’m not acquainted with the British terminology used within the book. That did not, however, take away from the flow of the story or my understanding of the story. It’s just something that I adjusted to as I read on, which I think can be done rather easily. Google is your friend if you truly can’t figure out what the term means.

Strike was, in my honest opinion, a likable and interesting character. I haven’t often read books with a disabled character in it, let alone that character being the main character. So, seeing that change of pace was quite nice. Robin was amusing with her eagerness for the job position but not in a manner that she got onto your nerves. Halfway through, I was hoping that she would be staying on with Strike in a permanent sense. Even some of the minor characters, I guess you would call them, were enjoyable. I hope to see Guy and Porter again, though I don’t know if we will.

I loved the ending. Wasn’t not expecting it but was quite interested in it. It was brilliantly done and I look forward to returning to Strike’s world in the next book as well. This novel just proves that J.K. Rowling can write things other than Harry Potter, though she never needed to prove that. I would recommend this to those who enjoy crime novels, most certainly. ( )

Ublodig, men ikkje blodfattig
Når Harry Potter-forfattar J.K. Rowling går til krimmen, satsar ho meir på person- og miljøskildring enn på å dikte opp utspekulerte drapsmetodar. Det er heilt ok.

In “The Cuckoo’s Calling” Ms. Rowling — er, Mr. Galbraith — seems to have similarly studied the detective story genre and turned its assorted conventions into something that, if not exactly original, nonetheless showcases her satiric eye (most in evidence in the Potter books in her portraits of the bureaucrats and blowhards associated with the Ministry of Magic) and her instinctive storytelling talents.

The Cuckoo’s Calling and Harry Potter both feature dead or absent parents, adoptees, and family intrigue. They both imagine highly complex worlds that are nonetheless knowable—if you study their laws closely—and amusing, and beautiful, and dangerous. If I’m honest, though, I liked Galbraith just a bit better than late Rowling. (The first four Harry Potter books still reign supreme.) While both writers are funny, suspenseful, and sharp about race and class, he seems under less pressure to take himself and his story seriously. I wonder why.

There is no sign whatsoever that this is Galbraith’s first novel, only that he has a delightful touch, both for evoking London and for capturing a new hero. It is an auspicious debut.

Why were you born when the snow was falling?
You should have come to the cuckoo's calling,
Or when grapes are green in the cluster,
Or, at least, when lithe swallows muster
      For their far off flying
      From summer dying.

Why did you die when the lambs were cropping?
You should have died at the apples' dropping,
When the grasshopper comes to trouble,
And the wheat-fields are sodden stubble,
      And all winds go sighing
      For sweet things dying.

                  Christina G. Rossetti, "A Dirge"

The dead could only speak through the mouths of those left behind, and through the signs they left scattered behind them.
The white-painted boutique stood on some of the most expensive acreage in London... To Strike, its colorful windows displayed a multitudinous mess of life's unnecessities. ... a gaudy celebration of consumerism he found irritating to retina and spirit. (page 184-5)

Then John Bristow walks through his door with an amazing story: his sister, the legendary supermodel Lula Landry, known to her friends as the Cuckoo, famously fell to her death a few months earlier.
