Fantastic Louise Penny vacuous interviewer.

Louise Penny is knowledgeable, kind, well read and as delightful as her books and characters.
The interviewer obviously hadn’t read any of her books, researched her life story, or knew any of the well known authors or books Penny talked of. Very embarrassing and insulting to a superb author and human being.

Excellent short interview with author Louise Penny

I always pre-order audio books by my favorite authors. I usually have 8 to 15 books on pre-order at Audible. Since during recent years Louise Penny publishes during the final week of August, I begin to think and read about her upcoming releases beginning about 8 weeks ahead of the release date. This 20 minute interview published on July 17 kept me interested as I awaited the release. It's not odd to have two awaited releases by my favorite authors released on the same day. Tom Wood's new Victor the Assassin novel was released yesterday along with Penny's Glass houses. That presented a dilemma for me: Tom Wood won but it was a close call.

Enchanting interview with an author I am enjoying.

With some interesting insights into her process. As someone who is only two books into her oeuvre, this makes me want to jump back in quickly.

Why people read crime fiction?

Definitely not because their lives have been safe and comfortable. I think the attempt to understand human nature is more accurate. As a person who has survived crimes ranging from attempted murder and gang rape at gunpoint to kidnapping, burglaries, and domestic violence, I certainly don't harbor any secret longing for drama in my life. I want to understand why people do the horrible things they do to other people. I read crime fiction, suspense, and thrillers to understand motivations, the wide variety of human perceptions, and the intellectual challenge of piecing clues together to "solve" a case. I actually work very hard to maintain my faith in the potential for good in humanity. I don't always succeed.

Good interview

The interviewer asked good questions, and Louise. Penny came across as a warm, intelligent and genuine subject. Very enjoyable.
The review form required that I rate performance and story, which is inappropriate. But, as usual, we serve the procedure, it does not serve us. Bah

Great interview

I’m impressed. I really enjoyed the interview and the insights into who the author is, as a person and a writer. I’m a bookaholic, but I had not yet read any of her works.
Before writing this review, I borrowed Still Life through my library’s Hoopla app; the Overdrive app had a bit of a waitlist;)
Thank you, Audible, for making this author interview available.

Interesting to hear her talk about writing

I’m always interested when anyone says they don’t know something. She was quick to admit she didn’t know. In my experience it takes some time for most to get there and to say it out loud.
