  1. I thought this book was dull, story line slow and uninteresting, PI sorry excuse for a man, the language was the worst I’ve read, the people were so unreal and I never finished the book and will never read another book by this author.

  2. I thought the cuckoo’s calling was very thought provoking, twisting in and out of story that only

    Cormoran Strike could solve. I hope we see more Cormoran Strike.

    Enjoyed!!!!!!!
