I really enjoyed this book. Cormoran Strike was easy to connect with and was an interesting character. I loved reading about the working relationship and friendship that he develops with his temp secretary, Robin. I also really liked that while Strike is investigating Lula's death we get to meet all these different interesting characters. At points J.K. Rowling did seem to be a bit long-winded but that didn't lessen my interest in the story. I am definitely looking forward to reading more about Cormoran Strike.
