    I would like to preface by saying I love, love, love this series of books. After hearing about it on What Should I Read Next , book one happened to go on sale. And from there I was hooked. I put down all the books in less than a year. However, book 14 fell majorly flat for me. The ...

    I made my trip to Three Pines for the year, and made it last as long as I could. It was warm and cozy, as always. This was not made favorite in the series, but still my favorite series of all, with my favorite characters. We were left with a little cliffhanger which will keep us ...

    This is the fourteenth in Louise Penny's popular Armand Gamache detective series. Gamache has long been a favorite of mine. He is a complicated and well-developed character, a humane and philosophical policeman who always has his eye on the bigger picture of how the work that he does a...

    What an excellent read! Thank you Louise Penny for bringing Armand back to us - for a while there it looked as though it might not happen. Kingdom of the Blind has everything we expect from a Three Pines novel. Gamache is his normal understanding, calm, all knowing self - and of co...

    Buckle up, people! I have many, many thoughts about this book, and series in general, and Louise Penny. 1. The beginning of this book is strong. As always. One of Louise Penny's strengths is her beginnings. She sucks you right into the story with the characters, the mystery, the...

    ?In the kingdom of the blind, the one eyed man is king.? The Armand Gamache series is one of my absolute favorites. The books are much deeper than a typical mystery. It?s always about the why, not the how. Continuing the story from the prior book, a load of deadly opiates...

    Oh, Armand, you kept me waiting this year... Our annual date usually takes place at the end of the summer, but this year I had to wait until Christmas to read the next chapter in your life. But it was worth the wait. Louise Penny knocked it out of the park again this year. If yo...

    After the death of her husband, Louise Penny took a break which was expected to be her retirement from the Chief Inspector Gamache series. Readers love this series because of its setting - a tiny, almost-impossible to find village, Three Pines. Gamache, however, is the key to the serie...

    4/5 Every year since 2005, when Louise Penny first published Still Life, another Armand Gamache novel has appeared. These last many years the books were released at the end of each August. This year Kingdom of the Blind wasn?t released until the end of November. In the Acknowledge...

    Well, it's not often that I finish a fiction book and immediately google the *DEA and a certain drug, but by golly I did this time. Scary, scary stuff -- and major props to Ms Penny for always being ahead of the curve on whatever's really going on out there regarding the latest in gett...

    I would like to preface by saying I love, love, love this series of books. After hearing about it on What Should I Read Next , book one happened to go on sale. And from there I was hooked. I put down all the books in less than a year. However, book 14 fell majorly flat for me. The ...

    4.5-5*s Kept me involved throughout. A lot going on. Rounded up-for Christmas ; )) PS I called author to tell her that now I'm totally OK with new narrator. As you might imagine, Louise was quite relieved. ...

    If you have read this far into the series you know what to expect. Louise Penny is one of those authors who I will put down any book I am currently reading to start hers. She never disappoints and this was not the exception! Get this as soon as you can! ...

    4.5 stars! I always open a new book by Louise Penny with joy. This is the 14th book in her 3 Pines series and have read them all. She has a unique style of writing which I am unable to compare with books by any other author. I enjoy the conversations which are sometimes infused by a sl...

    I made my trip to Three Pines for the year, and made it last as long as I could. It was warm and cozy, as always. This was not made favorite in the series, but still my favorite series of all, with my favorite characters. We were left with a little cliffhanger which will keep us ...

    This is the fourteenth in Louise Penny's popular Armand Gamache detective series. Gamache has long been a favorite of mine. He is a complicated and well-developed character, a humane and philosophical policeman who always has his eye on the bigger picture of how the work that he does a...

    I enjoy revisiting with Inspector Gamache and the characters of Three Pines. This story focussed on family and the need to move forward with peace in one's heart. One old family feud, going back over 100 years, starts this episode. It's intriguing, yet I could figure out the angles l...

    Unfortunately I have finished. I tried to make it last as long as possible, reading it slowly, even though I wanted to rush to the end. Three Pines, such picturesque village, I would love to live there, if it was real of course. I mentioned that to someone and they said, Yes, but they ...

    It is always a joy to return to Three Pines and its eccentric and offbeat residents, and this is a blisteringly brilliant addition to the Detective Armand Gamache series. Gamache has been suspended as the Head of the Surete du Quebec, a result of the fallout from his last case. His son...

    Just got done reading an advance copy of Kingdom of the Blind by Louise Penny. It's a fantastic book that had me guessing the entire way. You're not going to want to miss out on this one. ...

    It is easy to understand why readers love the village of Three Pines and its people. Symbolically, they represent all the finer things in life: wonderful and unique friendships, tolerance and acceptance, cozy homes and businesses, integrity and honesty. There is also good food, warm fi...

    What an excellent read! Thank you Louise Penny for bringing Armand back to us - for a while there it looked as though it might not happen. Kingdom of the Blind has everything we expect from a Three Pines novel. Gamache is his normal understanding, calm, all knowing self - and of co...

    Buckle up, people! I have many, many thoughts about this book, and series in general, and Louise Penny. 1. The beginning of this book is strong. As always. One of Louise Penny's strengths is her beginnings. She sucks you right into the story with the characters, the mystery, the...

    "We are only as blind as we want to be." (Maya Angelou) And with that Louise Penny opens her captivating novel with the nooks and cranies of what appears to be truth on the surface but bears the scales of something far more devious below. Is it shadowy eyes that mirror the heart or ...

    ?In the kingdom of the blind, the one-eyed man is king? The Three Pines series is a favorite series of mine, and the village is a character in itself. In Penny?s own words the books are about ?...the common yearning for community. For belonging. They?re about kindness, ac...

    ?In the kingdom of the blind, the one eyed man is king.? The Armand Gamache series is one of my absolute favorites. The books are much deeper than a typical mystery. It?s always about the why, not the how. Continuing the story from the prior book, a load of deadly opiates...

    Oh, Armand, you kept me waiting this year... Our annual date usually takes place at the end of the summer, but this year I had to wait until Christmas to read the next chapter in your life. But it was worth the wait. Louise Penny knocked it out of the park again this year. If yo...

    I've never read anything by Louise Penny before, and I've definitely never read her Chief Inspector Armand Gamache series, but you don't need to in order to follow along with Kingdom of the Blind. The author provides a lot of developments along the way for the reader to quickly get u...

    I love these trips to Three Pines and the visits with all the characters there. It?s an escape for me, even if I?m reading a story set during the winter while outside my home the temperature is below zero. I would love to have a piece of that tarte Tatin right now! I really, rea...

    Penny continues to show her incredible mastery -- whereas so many series would have long begun to disappoint by book 14, the Three Pines/Gamache series just keeps getting better and better. In KINGDOM OF THE BLIND, we have the storylines of the continuing investigation (and suspension)...

    Do yourself a favor and start at the beginning of this remarkable series (with Still Life). I thoroughly enjoyed this book - as I have the entire Gamache series - but it definitely marks a change in the narrative arc of the story. If you've invested in the other books in the series, th...

    4/5 Every year since 2005, when Louise Penny first published Still Life, another Armand Gamache novel has appeared. These last many years the books were released at the end of each August. This year Kingdom of the Blind wasn?t released until the end of November. In the Acknowledge...

    Well, it's not often that I finish a fiction book and immediately google the *DEA and a certain drug, but by golly I did this time. Scary, scary stuff -- and major props to Ms Penny for always being ahead of the curve on whatever's really going on out there regarding the latest in gett...

    I would like to preface by saying I love, love, love this series of books. After hearing about it on What Should I Read Next , book one happened to go on sale. And from there I was hooked. I put down all the books in less than a year. However, book 14 fell majorly flat for me. The ...

    4.5-5*s Kept me involved throughout. A lot going on. Rounded up-for Christmas ; )) PS I called author to tell her that now I'm totally OK with new narrator. As you might imagine, Louise was quite relieved. ...

    It is always a joy to return to Three Pines and its eccentric and offbeat residents, and this is a blisteringly brilliant addition to the Detective Armand Gamache series. Gamache has been suspended as the Head of the Surete du Quebec, a result of the fallout from his last case. His son...

    Just got done reading an advance copy of Kingdom of the Blind by Louise Penny. It's a fantastic book that had me guessing the entire way. You're not going to want to miss out on this one. ...

    It is easy to understand why readers love the village of Three Pines and its people. Symbolically, they represent all the finer things in life: wonderful and unique friendships, tolerance and acceptance, cozy homes and businesses, integrity and honesty. There is also good food, warm fi...

    4? ???? ?Fuck, fuck, fuck.? Admit it fans. When you finish the last page and the road to Three Pines is closed until another winter comes, quoting Rosa is the only way to assuage our anguish. It is currently very cold in Three Pines. So cold that Reine-Marie an...

    What an excellent read! Thank you Louise Penny for bringing Armand back to us - for a while there it looked as though it might not happen. Kingdom of the Blind has everything we expect from a Three Pines novel. Gamache is his normal understanding, calm, all knowing self - and of co...

    Buckle up, people! I have many, many thoughts about this book, and series in general, and Louise Penny. 1. The beginning of this book is strong. As always. One of Louise Penny's strengths is her beginnings. She sucks you right into the story with the characters, the mystery, the...

    "We are only as blind as we want to be." (Maya Angelou) And with that Louise Penny opens her captivating novel with the nooks and cranies of what appears to be truth on the surface but bears the scales of something far more devious below. Is it shadowy eyes that mirror the heart or ...

    ?In the kingdom of the blind, the one-eyed man is king? The Three Pines series is a favorite series of mine, and the village is a character in itself. In Penny?s own words the books are about ?...the common yearning for community. For belonging. They?re about kindness, ac...

    ?In the kingdom of the blind, the one eyed man is king.? The Armand Gamache series is one of my absolute favorites. The books are much deeper than a typical mystery. It?s always about the why, not the how. Continuing the story from the prior book, a load of deadly opiates...

    After a lengthy binge-read of Louise Penny?s spectacular series, I was forced to wait a few weeks for this latest release. The wait was worth it, as Penny continues to impress while building on established story angles. Fans will surely find something with which they can relate in th...

    Oh, Armand, you kept me waiting this year... Our annual date usually takes place at the end of the summer, but this year I had to wait until Christmas to read the next chapter in your life. But it was worth the wait. Louise Penny knocked it out of the park again this year. If yo...

    I've never read anything by Louise Penny before, and I've definitely never read her Chief Inspector Armand Gamache series, but you don't need to in order to follow along with Kingdom of the Blind. The author provides a lot of developments along the way for the reader to quickly get u...

    3.5 stars In this 14th book in the 'Chief Inspector Armand Gamache' series, the Canadian cop becomes the executor of a will and investigates a murder. The book can be read as a standalone, but familiarity with the series is a bonus. ***** As the story opens, Chief Superinten...

    First Sentence: Armand Gamache slowed his car to a crawl, then stopped on the snow-covered secondary road. Armand Gamache, former head of the Sret du Quebec, Myrna Landers, a bookseller, and a young builder have been named as liquidators (executors) for the will of an apparent s...

    Bless you, Louise Penny. And thank you for this extraordinary series, the people of Three Pines, and this wonderful book. ::hugs:: ::pours tea and starts re-reading Kingdom of the Blind:: ...

    I love these trips to Three Pines and the visits with all the characters there. It?s an escape for me, even if I?m reading a story set during the winter while outside my home the temperature is below zero. I would love to have a piece of that tarte Tatin right now! I really, rea...

    Penny continues to show her incredible mastery -- whereas so many series would have long begun to disappoint by book 14, the Three Pines/Gamache series just keeps getting better and better. In KINGDOM OF THE BLIND, we have the storylines of the continuing investigation (and suspension)...

    Do yourself a favor and start at the beginning of this remarkable series (with Still Life). I thoroughly enjoyed this book - as I have the entire Gamache series - but it definitely marks a change in the narrative arc of the story. If you've invested in the other books in the series, th...

    ...And we are back.....Back that is to the wonderful village of Three Pines, its residents, and of course Chief Inspector Armand Gamache, his family, friends, and his band of law enforcers. I was ever so anxious to read this book as I have read and enjoyed most of the books in this se...

    After the death of her husband, Louise Penny took a break which was expected to be her retirement from the Chief Inspector Gamache series. Readers love this series because of its setting - a tiny, almost-impossible to find village, Three Pines. Gamache, however, is the key to the serie...

    4/5 Every year since 2005, when Louise Penny first published Still Life, another Armand Gamache novel has appeared. These last many years the books were released at the end of each August. This year Kingdom of the Blind wasn?t released until the end of November. In the Acknowledge...

    Well, it's not often that I finish a fiction book and immediately google the *DEA and a certain drug, but by golly I did this time. Scary, scary stuff -- and major props to Ms Penny for always being ahead of the curve on whatever's really going on out there regarding the latest in gett...

    I would like to preface by saying I love, love, love this series of books. After hearing about it on What Should I Read Next , book one happened to go on sale. And from there I was hooked. I put down all the books in less than a year. However, book 14 fell majorly flat for me. The ...
