Does dr ogden leave murdoch mysteries
Except the Dying (Detective Murdoch, #1) by Maureen JenningsI honestly admit, Im a bit confused by this book. On the one hand, I really like it, but on the other, I am quite annoyed with it. Let me break it down into what worked and what didnt. Warning, here there be spoilers!
The attention to detail. This book is slow, building on the minutiae of daily life. As each day goes by, you learn more of the aspects of Victorian Canadian daily interactions. I liked this. There wasnt any sudden hook to force the characters into impossible reactive scenarios, and there was no real feel of urgency. A girl is found dead. Well now what? Lets go through the motions, step by step. I liked seeing that process.
What kinda worked:
-The jumping around of narrative. On the one hand, it can be seen as distracted ploy to make the reader think that it could be any of the characters. Since it never reveals who these character are doing these nefarious deeds, you just have to assume and piece it together, but often the assumption is wrong. I liked how it let you see more insight into some of the characters, but on the other, it felt like it weakened the overall book. Murdoch is not aware of these happenings, so if feels like the reader shouldnt be either. Also, at times it felt very much like a purposeful distraction to keep the reader guessing.
-Murdochs character. I guess Im bias because I fell in love with Yannick Bissons portrayal of the perfect stoic, gentlemanly scholar. This Murdoch seems to lack a defining character. Hes methodical and clever enough, I suppose, but it definitely doesnt seem as though he keeps up with the forefront of scientific discovery and knowledge that so emboldens the Bisson character. This Murdoch is rougher and more life-hardened. He swears a bit more, loses his cool a bit faster, drinks a bit more, and all in all, seems like the everyday kind of man, just doing his bit, toiling away, keeping his mouth shut to his superiors, and just trying to get by.
-How the case was solved. Murdoch solves this case, not through scientific experimentation or any notes of brilliance, but through copious interviews and following up on alibis. In fact, I was a bit disappointing that this case was solved by basically getting all the main suspects together in the same room and watching as they ratted each other out.
What didnt work:
-The motive. I dont know if I read this book too fast or what, but I couldnt find a motive. It seemed as though several events were going on, but not one addressed the question of why Therese died. We found out why she left, but not really what happened to her after. Was it coincidence that she was picked up? Was the death intentional? Was it a drugged orgy gone wrong? Just what kind of sordid stuff was the alderman involved in, and why was his servant so intent on killing everyone to tie up loose end that didnt seem to even be relevant? For a book that spent so much time on crafting the scene of Victorian Toronto, it seems a let down that the same attention to detail was left out of the character motive and psychology. I finished the booking thinking nothing made sense. I was more confused, and annoyed that there was no sense of closure.
Will I read more Murdoch Mysteries? Yes. Just because I loved how detailed and well written the historical scenes were. I just hope that the storylines get more flushed out.
Murdoch may be a handsome, brilliant man, but he's also as rigid as one of his starched collars, and it took him what felt like FOREVER to make his feelings known to colleague Julia Ogden. For the longest time, their flirtation was limited to yearning looks while dissecting corpses. Not that it stopped Murdoch from fantasizing. Indeed, the very first time we saw them kiss, it was while she was examining the water content of a human lung There's just something about excavated human organs that pushes his buttons, we guess.
