One thought on “Nantucket Sawbuck

  1. Linda Marie Marsh

    Move over Michael Connelly, Steven Axelrod is here, and here to stay Others have critiqued the editing of the book,i thought reviews were for the story and the writing of it, and if so, this author is headed to the top Crisp, concise chapters and good lord his dry wit is an added bonus.It s a murder mystery centered around greed, and takes place on a Massachusetts island Every time i thought to myself, AHA guilty i d read on and then think oh wait, noaha HE S guilty Nantucket Sawbuck keeps you o [...]

    this book does not appear to be edited The proof reader must have used spell check and never did the actual reading The story was good but I had trouble with the poor quality of the written word.

    This is not a true mystery, of a mainstream novel with a mystery included It started off as a straight mystery but after Chapter 3, veered into the mainstream lane and stayed there, slowing the pace of the book to a crawl, until Chapter 22 Once Axelrod got back to the mystery, the story took off to a great climax Axelrod should have focused of those chapters on the mystery It would have made for an even engaging read.Over that 19 chapter span, Axelrod gave almost everyone on the island a chap [...]

  6. Carl Brookins

    Sad With the prestige of a strong tasteful press s reputation, one would expect better from any work, including a debut novel The writing is problematical, the author s research is lacking in several important aspects and he is apparently unable to conceal his scorn for both the wealthy and the workers who live on the island He has little patience for most other aspects of modern or historical American society.His murder victim is someone who, like Bernie Madoff, has managed to rip off nearly ev [...]

    I really enjoyed reading this book It is a while since I read a book that I found it difficult to put down, but this was it.I loved the main character, police chief Henry Kennis, and how he viewed his job and the case, on the island of Nantucket The author really brought the location alive for me, with his descriptive language and obviously knows the area well.The plot was interesting and clever and there were many twists and turns A number of clever plot devices were employed to lead the reader [...]

    I m not sure what native Nantucket islanders will think of this or those who spend a good part of the summer out there on that astonishing island paradise Axelrod pigeon holes a lot of people native and otherwise as being alike in certain ways but despite that this is one terrific mystery, one that will keep you burning the proverbial late night oil and calling in sick to work.My sister who spends the summer out there thought this would be the big beach book of the summer of 2014 and it may be d [...]

    I thought this book was pretty good when I first read it, about a week ago But, I picked it up again this morning because I couldn t remember the details of the ending I had to read about 75 pages before everything came back to me So, I decided it was just okay, otherwise I assume I would have been able to remember the details for a bit longer The story is interesting, a California policeman relocated to Nantucket, a filthy rich and unlikable man is murdered This will be the case that makes his [...]

  11. Roger

    An easy, uncomplicated summer read I have to agree with reviewers who commented on the sloppy proof reading But, at least once it added a parallel mystery of its own that was resolved later in the story I m calling it, The Case of the Transported Article The article a is mysteriously missing in a sentence, but several chapters later it shows up in the middle of another sentence where it clearly does not belong stuck there for eternity Poor thingBut all that detracts from the fact that it was an [...]

  12. Mickey Hoffman

    I really liked the characters and setting in this mystery novel The way the story is told is a bit awkward but nowadays the custom is to put the murder up front, even if the book would read better without having to jump back in time to accommodate this Still, the tale is interesting and held my attention to the end The book obviously wasn t proofread and there are many, many extra nonsensical words cropping up that shouldn t be there.

  13. Duffy Pearce

    It says this is A Henry Kennis Mystery and refers to it as a series but this is the only title I discovered, which is a shame I ll look forward to the next one if there is one because this was an entertaining read Good mystery Good local color lots of locals versus summer people intrigue It was a good summer read on a nice summer day when I should have been working which made it all the enjoyable.

  14. Fictionophile

    This police procedural is written with insight and understanding of human weaknesses and flaws First of a series, this is a quick and entertaining read with strong characterization which will appeal to fans of the genre.For my full review see my blog Fictionophile

  15. Terese

    Loved the true Nantucket references and the inside scoop on living on the island year round as a laborerd the inside scoop on how they view those who wear leather pants and just walk around eating ice cream love those lines Good read, but the story was a bit back and forth, convoluted I stuck with it though and not surprised about Fionahad that feeling.

  16. Juleah

    Loved the location and I liked the main character The book could use better editing, but overall I was entertained by the story and I have already reserved the next book in the series I am interested to see how the characters evolve.

  17. Andy Plonka

    The villain in this novel has many enemies and most of the enemies has a legitimate reason to want him dead Not a unique plot and not a brilliant execution by the author This is a first effort Let s hope he improves with his next try.

  18. Linda

    Enjoyed the Nantucket setting The first half of the book was good, but it fell apart in the second half It definitely needed editing and the writing very primary in nature As this was a first in a series, I will try it one time to give it the ole college try.

  19. Judy Horton

    A good mystery The plot gets complicated because of all the characters, so you have to pay attention It has lots of local Nantucket and Massachusetts details Enough to make a former New Englander smile in memory.

  20. Jackie R

    I found this somewhat predictable yet lavish in characters This author loves the area, yet am uncertain if I have any desire to go there Light read, so for that, go for it if you need something quick to read.

  21. Elizabeth Jones

    A fun to read, fast moving and well plotted mystery with wry humor Good atmosphere showing the tension between old Nantucket and rich newcomers.
