- Robin, one of the most interesting and likable characters JKR has ever created, co-stars in the novel and her identity is superbly defined
- Strike's backstory is addressed in more detail, and it's very compelling
- The settings are vividly depicted, with excellent descriptions of sites all over seedy and posh London and Northern England
- Heavy topics like rape, child abuse, and mental illness are thoughtfully considered and woven into the narrative without being overly preachy
- The relationship between Robin and Strike continues to develop in a complex, unpredictable way
- The dialog is consistently excellent and realistic
- Much less emphasis on Strike's disability, which plagued the last novel
- The reveal, unlike the first two novels, is not an endless explanatory monologue -- it's thankfully short and sweet
**These positives far outweigh the following negatives, definitely making Career of Evil a worthwhile read. Nevertheless...
- Many of the characters are one-dimensional. While Strike and Robin are increasingly depicted as complicated, multifaceted protagonists, most others are portrayed without any significant depth. The bad guys are REALLY bad; the victims are hopelessly innocent, others just occupy space. Some, like Matthew and Whittaker, are cartoonishly described and Detective Carver is, to put it bluntly, Vernon Dursely
- Someone needs to pluck up the courage and let the author know she needs an editor. The book is downright plodding at times.
- The basic premise of the plot is forced and improbable (BIID? Really?)
- Each chapter leads with lyrics from a Blue Oyster Cult song. These lines figure into the story (sort of), but this silly gimmick gets old fast
- The violence (and there is quite a lot) is gratuitously over the top, as if JKR is determined to identify herself as an adult writer
- The comic element featured in the first two novels is largely absent in the third
- The book features intermittent passages shown from the killer's perspective which are eye-rollingly bad. I hate to say that but it's true. Think of every serial killer you've ever seen in a movie or read about in a book, and that's the stereotype you get -- right down to the killer's referring to a woman as "It" a la Buffalo Bill in Silence of the Lambs. These sections are so subpar, so cliched, and so unimaginative that it's hard to believe that JKR wrote them. I suppose they are included to give the narrative an additional angle but, rather than compliment the story's trajectory, they dumb it down.
Despite its drawbacks, Career of Evil is a very good read. Slow at times, but enjoyable. As said above, the positives outweigh the negatives. In particular, the maturing of Robin's and Strike's characters is a leap forward. I wouldn't be surprised if this book is regarded as the most popular one in the series so far, although the hyper-violent yet cliched serial killer may be off-putting to some.
Mr Galbraith's third book appears deadline-pressured. The plot has some good parts in the way it tries to focus on some of the more evil crimes committed in the society, but otherwise the story is generally weak. There is nothing so smart or exciting in the mystery solving as to make it necessary for Ms Rowling to write.
Separately, Cormoran-Robin's do-they-really-love-each-ther-or-not drags so much that one simply loses interest while the author exhibits his (?) own bind on which way to swing for the future of the series. If he makes them partners, he might not be able to use them as crime-solving partners without throwing in domestic issues. Yet, the good author does not want to disappoint the readers. This time around, the Hermione-Harry travesty is just too cumbersome for most to bother beyond a point. Cormoran Strike is no Ted Mosby (How I Met Your Mother) to keep the audience waiting for so long on his Robin.
The most disappointing aspect of the book is the actual suspense and resolution - just too straightforward and without a material twist for a book of the kind. There was no thrilling action sequence which is par for the Galbraith books but not the lack of a tale twist.
The scenes of violence and the "rest of it" (I dont want to give any of the story away but if you have read it you know what I am referring to) is just "too much" for me. I like to enjoy my audio books having the majority of listening time during my evening meal and aftewards. There is far too much content that is simply not a good fit for someone trying to enjoy a meal.
I think I'd done with this series after this one.
This one is very disjointed. There are a lot of subplots and the author fails to keep them all moving along. I kept reading thinking "where the heck are we going now?" but not in a good way like you want with a mystery, just in a "what the heck is even happening here and why should I care?" way. The author fails to build tension and interest. There are moments of interest, but it is surrounded by a lot of mundane, boring activity and dialog that does little to build the characters or move the main plot along. The Blue Oyster Cult song references started out as a nice touch, but became tiresome.
