    I read several Minette Walters books while on holiday and found them very well writtenI found them very powerful and slightly different to the normal style of Mystery Crime writersVery good reads


  2. John John says:

    I've read several of Walters's later novels and for the most part enjoyed them a great deal Her writing has a tremendous fluency while she has the ability to create very real characters; the net result is thrillers that have a fine pace and an admirable depth of reader involvementHad I not vaguely remembered that The Ice House was her debut novel I'd have been startled The writing's uite often pretty clumsy the narrative seems a bit disjointed as if the book had been written piecemeal over an extended period and then not subjected to a stringent enough editing the characters seem to act inconsistently and sometimes in a rather adolescent fashion there's an over readiness to opt for melodrama with each new revelation and there's a certain level of snobbery that's pretty unappealing For all that the novel does remain very readable I shot through it in just a few hoursThe plot in short The three women who live at Streech Grange are ostracized by the local villagers Not only are they obviously lezzies set on corrupting the neighborhood's daughters ten years ago one of them Phoebe obviously killed her husband David who has never been seen since Now a rotted corpse has been discovered in the abandoned ice house on the Streech Grange estate and the rumor spreads like wildfire that the body is David's Inspector Walsh who headed the original murder inuiry when David disappeared and his sidekick the rough diamond Detective Sergeant Andy McLoughlin take charge of the case Andy finds himself maddeningly both repelled and attracted by one of the three friends Anne Cattrell and the feeling's mutual Part of the circumstances of the novel make this a sort of distant cousin to Josephine Tey's The Franchise Affair 1948 Lillian Hellman's The Children's Hour 1934 and even Shirley Jackson's We Have Always Lived in the Castle 1962 It's a less dominant element here but as I've always been especially terrified by the mindless sadistic persecutionary viciousness of the lynch mob and its analogues such as the witch hunt in which victims are powerless in face of the mob this part hit me uite hardBecause of the overall amateurishness relative because I'm sure plenty of authors would have been proud to have this as their first novel there's the sense throughout that this could well have been a screen story written not for publication but to be the basis of a screenplay And indeed it has served that function A good few years ago I watched the 1996 TV movieminiseries adaptation of The Ice House with Daniel Craig and Kitty Aldridge and from what I can remember that made for a much satisfying rounded rendition of the tale


  3. Nandini Nandini says:

    S I are arguing about how this book ended up in our house at all I think he ordered it from the library and he insists it must have been me Whatever It was a really good read regardlessThree women Phoebe Maybury Diana Thomson and Anne Cattrell are the residents of Streech Grange and are under suspicion for murder Again Ten years ago Phoebe's husband David disappeared conveniently into thin air but there was neither a body nor any other evidence to connect Phoebe to his murder Now a disgusting decomposing unidentifiably ravaged dead body has turned up in the ice house Could it possibly be David Maybury? Chief Inspector Walsh is thrilled at the prospect of finally solving his first ever case Sergeant McLoughlin is simply trying to get through the investigation without losing his temper and the mostly liuid contents of his stomach The three lesbians though are tougher and canny opponents than either of them imagineI loved the characters They're complex each one of them and in possession of human dignity usually denied to most fictional characters especially the ones the writer finds politically morally or socially uestionable No such discrimination in this bookI also loved the story's up to date cosy sensibility It's a rural English murder mystery but we have cell phones and internet and feminism and all that jazz Good to see a genre like this one keeping up with the times Though since I don't read mysteries that often I might be giving this book too much credit for something that may be standard fare these days Please enlighten me if that's the caseThe plot is meaty and juicy and other carnivorous sounding adjectives as well Also it has the reuisite twists though none that will actually blow your stockings off Maybe enough to make a couple of ladders spontaneously appear AdeuateWhat I found uestionable was the personality transplant one of the main characters got about halfway through the novel apparantly SOLELY for the purpose of turning that character into a believable love interest for another main character Nah not buying it And I despair at YET another romance that begins with the couple just drop dead hating each other at first sightMuch problematic is the use of omniscient 3rd person POV This author hops from one character's head to another's within the space of single unbroken paragraphs and inserts statements that are clearly the authorial voice in addition so that very often I was confused about what was going on For example take the sentenceHe hung on to her every word adoringlyThis could mean very different things depending on who is thinking it If the author is telling me this I will take it as a simple statement of fact the guy is smitten If this is the woman's observation I'll take it with a slight pinch of salt because no person is a perfectly accurate judge of what's going on in another person's head If the man is telling me this I'll take it with a huge pinch of salt because he has been shown to be deliberately deceptive in the pastThe context and placement of this sentence gave me no way of knowing from whose point of view it was written And there are many such instances throughout the book which made for a somewhat confusing read at times until I stopped letting it bug me too much

    Oh my god I'm so glad it's over It's been a while since I've read a book so damn frustratingThis book only got two stars because it had an interesting setting fascinating secondary characters and suspects and the resolution of the case managed to surprise me in the endBUT I've never read a crime novel where I was rooting for the murderer to show up and off the two main investigators so badly They were such misogynistic homophobic judgemental assholes I don't even know what to say I actually had to look up if the book was really written by a woman than once just to be sure Which resulted in me asking myself several times if I as the reader was even supposed to root for them Maybe I was supposed to root for the suspects three really cool ladies? I asked myself that till around 30 pages before the end when one of the assholes got a personality transplant and it turned out that yes I was really supposed to root for one of them at least My eyes almost rolled out of the sockets when that dude with the worst neckbeard attitude towards women was suddenly their biggest defender and a beacon of human kindness in the eyes of the othersOh and in case anyone is looking for any positive portrayal of lesbians because of summaries they found Don't get your hopes up view spoilerAll three women are straight as arrows and while the people of the village are definitely not sympathetic characters it's still not nice to read about 'perversions' I can remember maybe two instances where someone didn't react with disgust at the 'accusation' hide spoiler


  5. S.P. Aruna S.P. Aruna says:

    A dead body is discovered in the ice house of a country manor a body with no identifying marks not even fingerprints Throw in the three eccentric women who live on the manor and their controversial past tongues are wagging out all sorts of conspiracies spiced with sexual innuendos The characters are offbeat and the reader gets a picture of the incestuous social setting in a small English village whcih was enough for me to find it interesting


  6. F.R. F.R. says:

    Ten years after a brutish businessman walked out on his wife and children and was never seen again a dead and decayed body shows up in a forgotten corner of their country estate Is it the missing husband finally discovered? And if so is his wife – the prime suspect in the original case – really the killer?This cross between a police procedural and a country house murder has a good and twisting plot but suffers from the fact that many of its characters fall into the hinterland between caricature and actual character Walters does provide the reader with details than Dame Agatha Christie would have but they still don’t leap off the page as real living people and the plot suffers as a conseuence It’s difficult for the reader to truly empathise at the big confrontations or to be surprised at the sudden shocks as we don’t know these people well enough to genuinely care nor have a firm understanding on what they would or wouldn’t do In addition I can accept the ostensibly unsympathetic policeman actually being sympathetic and vice versa but it happens so suddenly in this book as to make the Damascene Conversion look long and drawn outIt maintains its air of mystery well and the denouement was not uite what I was expecting well the very last bit was and I’ll give it points for that but this felt like a book to pass the time than to be riveted by


  7. Kelsie Kelsie says:

    It took me forever to finish this book because I really wasn't feeling itIt was a 'who dunnit' novel but I ended up not caring who dunnit I felt the writing was all over the place there were too many generic characters that I got muddled up who was who I really lost track a few times due to it being so generic and the story had about as much interest as beige paintIt was below average it wasn't terrible hence the 2 stars but it didn't stand out what so ever It was just so bland When all the puzzle pieces were put together all I could muster up was 'huh well thank God that's over' Can't say it makes me want to read another Minette Walters book againx

    A lovely lady I work with gave me a pile of her favourite books to read for the holidays I love being given books and I like the idea of picking up something I would not normally have readbut at the same time it is a double edged sword as you feel compelled to want to love it too This murder mystery book was written in 1993 and I think my biggest issue with it is that it has dated badly over the past 25 years especially the sexist remarks the homophobic remarks the abuse that is toleratedit really was difficult for me to embrace these characters at all The mystery though was uite well done and although all the loose ends were tied up I am not uite sure whether you would be able to pick it on the clues provided and that there were so many side characters to keep track of that it all became rather confusing in the end I had never heard of an Ice House before so I confess the most exciting thing I found about the book was when I put the book down and started reading up on Ice Houses structures designed to store ice prior to the invention of the refrigerator and of course the site for the body to be found in this book I love learning new things when I read and it doesn't matter what you readthere is always a new wordideaconcept to ponder An okay readReading ChallengeAussie Reader's 2019 December Challenge Read books that titles spell out the word Xmas RobIn


  9. N.N. Light N.N. Light says:

    I know this is for the hardcover but I actually read the mass marketI read a later book by Minette Walters and fell in love with her writing style This is her debut noel and honestly it's superb Ice House is the story of three women living in an English manor house One of them has been accused of murdering her husband ten years ago Flash forward and a body is discovered in the ice house Suddenly all three women are suspects and the local village folk don't know what to think Tongues wag as they usually do in small English villages and hatred spreads like wildfire The the police unravel the deeper the mystery A superb mystery that kept me up half the night Highly recommend My Rating 4 stars


  10. Jessica Woodbury Jessica Woodbury says:

    I was complaining on Twitter that I don't have enough mystery series to follow or mystery authors who are consistently putting out great books Minette Walters was someone I'd never heard of before but she was recommended by author Stephanie Gayle and I'm hugely grateful for it I feel like Walters and I will have a long and happy relationshipWith The Ice House Walters manages to update the old school Christie style manor house mystery with modern characters and settings Regular references to lesbianism alcoholism birth control etc help remind you that you're not in one of those old 30's novels but it's easy to forget with Walters' breezy yet classic style It's a fairly complex plot that starts off appearing uite simple another Christie hallmark Everything does get shaken out in the end and the answers are both unexpected and totally logical I will definitely be reading much Walters hopefully my library has her entire repertoire How did I go this long without knowing about her??
