    1. I can honestly say I ve been a Nicci French husband and wife team, Sean French and Nicci Gerrard for over a decade, but I may have to quit them after reading Until It s Over.Astrid Bell is in her early 20s and works as a bike messenger in London She lives in a huge house with university pals Pippa and her former boyfriend and owner of the house Miles They share the space with Mick, Dario, Davy and Owen They re a family, in a sense.Until It s Over opens with an accident Astrid is riding home from [...]


    2. I liked this story, but didn t particularly care about the characters and there were many of them The second half of the book threw me out and as a writer myself, I felt it was a bit of a cheat to retell the same story from the murderer s viewpoint I think I would ve included the murderer s viewpoint at the same time as the original storyline, leaving the reader in suspense as to who the murderer is until the end.I found the ending disappointing because the epilogue jumps too far ahead without r [...]


    3. Nicci French always does a good psychological thriller but this one didn t seem as tense as previous ones I have read I wasn t overly bothered about the characters, it seemed like there were a couple too many to actually get to know them The book is essentially in tow halves The first half is the story of Astrid, a bike courier who is linked to three murders, although she didn t commit them she just kept finding the bodies The second half is a retelling of the same story but through the eyes of [...]


    4. Nicca French are one of those authors what i call my comfortable reads as i have now read 5 of thier books and know i like both the style of writing and the general story lines of the books.With this one it was as always full of twists and turns and i loved that It only let itself down at the end where i felt the ending was a tad incomplete.I would have enjoyed a fuller ending with a small story as to what happend to the rest of the housemates Otherwise a great read and would definately read by [...]


    5. According to Merriam Webster s Dictionary, jinx is someone or something that causes bad luck also a state or period of bad luck caused by a jinx British dictionaries call it an Americanism and basically hope that it is a condition that affects others The Thesaurus lists as synonyms hex, charm, enchantment, condemn, hoodoo, nemesis, bewitch, plague spell, voodoo, black magic, evil eye and kiss of death I call it Astrid Bell The writing tandem of Nicci Gerrard and Sean French has done it again Ast [...]


    6. I found this book by sheer luck on discount at BAM and am so glad that I did Very rarely does a written story have so many characters that you really get to KNOW during the course of a novel You don t just know your protagonist or antagonist, every character is crucial The characters are pieced together with many layers thus making them real, believable on a large scale The story I absolutely tore through this book like my life depended on it The questions that arose were not always quickly an [...]


    7. 3 STARS I LIKED ITAUDIOBOOKThis is the first book by this author that I ve read and I enjoyed it A lot of reviewers for this book state this isn t the best Nicci French book so I am encouraged because I enjoyed this one It s of course a murder mystery set in London and there is a house full of people who we figure are the most likely to have done the crimes I couldn t figure out exactly who might have done it until it was revealed to us at about 2 3 into the book the POV changes from Astrid to t [...]


    8. This book did not come up to scratch The first part is told by Astrid describing how she finds three dead women The second part consists of the same events, but told by the killer Then in the last 10 pages Astrid entraps the killer, he gets arrested and Astrid lives happily ever after with a brand new lover No explanation as to how or why Astrid and the police became suspicious of the real killer in the first place when they already had somebody in custody with evidence galore I was hovering bet [...]


    9. I really like the narrator of this story,it added to the enjoyment for me.A bunch of friends sharing a house seemingly all is well until our heroine seems to be attracting dead people not ghosts Several people she either knows or is a few degrees separated from are dying violently and there are similarities There are lots of dynamics happening between all the house mates and life in the shared house is not as idyllic as it first appears, but then they are all mostly growing older and really thei [...]


    10. In het verleden las ik al vaker boeken geschreven door Nicci French De stijl beviel me wel en doorgaans zijn de boeken vlot leesbaar Bij aanvang van dit boek bleef ik wat op mijn honger zitten, het kwam wat chicklit achtig over, waarschijnlijk door het feit dat de samenwonende jongvolwassenen vrij centraal stonden Toch werd mijn interesse voldoende gewekt om verder te lezen Het leuke is wel dat je na enige tijd een tweede deel in het boek ontdekt, waar je vanuit de beleving van de moordenaar lee [...]


    11. Could not finish this book In fact, I gave up after 50 pages The premise is interesting but the writing is bland and generic Weirdly so, as if the text was written by a computer The author s blurb indicates Nicci French is actually two people a husband and wife writing team Not surprising, as this feels as though it were written by committee The prose is completely devoid of style The words make sense and it is grammatically correct it is just lifeless, bloodless.


    12. I ve read all their books love them These first got me into murder mysteries crime, as they re not gory, like pyschological thrillers.Very clever idea about telling the story from 2 points of view extremely interesting to observe the same scene from the 2 different angles.I was disappointed at the last few pages, it didn t seem quite finished.Enjoyed reading an excerpt from the next book at the end the interview with the authors.


    13. This was an interesting experiment in form, with the POV shifting about 2 3 of the way through the story Unfortunately, the reveal comes quickly after, with the result that the later chapters are just a rehash of the narrative that add little to the story or character The shift allows for explanations, but the creepy tension well created in the first part completely dissipates as a result.Knowing the culprit early in their piece of the telling also means that the resolution of the story then hin [...]


    14. This was my first time reading a Nicci French book and it wasn t as good as I was hoping it to be I was hoping it would be a much exciting read and leave me guessing who the killer could be but in all honesty I didn t really care throughout the book.The beginning I felt was quite slow and I had trouble keeping myself reading it However when it got to the second murder I started getting into it a bit and caring about the characters in the book However when it got to the third murder I felt a ch [...]


    15. As a fan of a series by Nicci French, I am deeply disappointed by this I didn t enjoy it at all Not even close The only reason I m rating this 2 stars instead of 1 is because her writing is eye catching and well descriptive I hated all the characters And I mean all of them I m not sure the author did much research into matters for this book either I mean, what kind of detective hauls in a witness to the police station and outright accuses them of committing a crime when they have no evidence For [...]


    16. I decided to try this author based on a few reviews Unfortunately, the flow of the story just didn t work for me So many characters were introduced but never developed carefully, not even the main character Astrid I wasn t invested in her The two part format was an odd setup for me, and by the end, I just wanted to get through it The underdevelopment of characters especially female characters sometimes made me dislike them for being flaky and ridiculous One housemate, described as a drifter, ex [...]


    17. Another great read by Nicci French 7 people share a house in London The lead character, Astrid Bell, is linked to 3 murders in part one she narrates her side of the story and how she discovered the bodies In part 2 we find out who the murderer is as he narrates his story how he came to be in London, his obsession with Astrid I was hoping he would get away with the murders because getting caught is too predictable The Epilogue was weak, but the way the murderer was caught was quite good.


    18. The story is split in 2 parts and told by 2 different narrators Hence, the sequences and facts were repeated each time I found the plot a bit lengthy took quite some time before I got really interested I did not find most characters utterly interesting However, the description of the killer s motives, manipulations and modus operandi was quite enthralling and motivated me to continue reading the book until the end.


    19. My first Nicci French Kept my interest, especially since the main character was named Astrid Liked how it was told in the first person, by Astrid for most of the book, then switched to the first person view of the killer The killer was easy to spot, crime 101, but it was nice to have the killer s thoughts told in several chapters There were some holes in the story and the ending was a bit too pat for me, but it was a suspenseful enough book.


    20. This was one I couldn t put down Wonderful characterization of the residents at Maitland Road Really felt I knew them all I was convinced I knew whodunnit but turned out I was totally wrong Three murders and lots of twists and turns No flat points in this story This is my second read by this husband and wife partnership and happy to say I have lined up.


    21. The book is set in London and is told from 2 points of view A very interesting approach When the book opens it is being narrated by a bike messenger and she has just had a bicycle car accident It is very descriptive Murders follow and lots of roommate drama Part 2 is told by the murderer Of course there is no mystery by the time you are into Part 2, but there is a lot of suspense.


    22. I liked that this book was about a flat full of young people, an interesting subject choice Flatting in London brings back memories, not quite these memories though I found myself fascinated by the main character Astrid, the intrigue and the suspense The book kept my interest until the very end and sometimes that s hard to do A terrific read.


    23. In this London based murder mystery, a group of tenants in a house share go from friends to enemies, when the police investigate a murder of a neighbour.Maybe because its my home town that i enjoyed this story, all the locations and the general ambiance were familiar and the characters were typical of the london i know.




    24. Great book, it has bicycles and gardening Murder and mystery A household and an area in transition It s a love story to London Also there is a clever shift of perspective part way through




    25. Astrid Bell is a bike messenger who discovers three murders She lives with five others in a shared house and suspicions and intrigue develop as events play out.


    26. Rating 2.5 starsThe story line was interesting but the delivery was somewhat lacking I m not sure if that s because it seemed to move at a snail s pace or if it just felt disjointed I was not attached to any of the characters either, which definitely didn t help
