    One thought on “A Deadly Indifference”

    1. Really just a 3 1 2 I appreciate the attempt to modernize this series with a relatively new edition published in 1995 It had none of the outdated terms prices that felt awkward in the other books It was also markedly improved in terms of the writing ability displayed As a personal aside, I loved reading about Cambridge and punting on the Cam It brought back good memories Sigh.Unfortunately, the book lacked the unabashed application of economic theories that made the earlier books special The eco [...]

    2. Okay, here s a strange combination economics mystery I wonder how these two could come together but in this book they coexist In my opinion, if I had any idea about economics, this book would be interesting and appealing to me I don t understand numbers, figures, fractions anything about statistics or consumer theories so, it was sometimes hard for me to follow the book I read it purely for the mystery element yet it was directly related to economy and I failed there, too What I expected from t [...]

    3. Entertaining cozy mystery set in 1965 Cambridge University That setting gives the book a bit of an Inspector Morse feeling.Easy read, with very little economics standing in the way of the storytelling Not quite as good in plot and characterization as The Fatal Equilibrium, its predecessor in the Henry Spearman series, but still recommended if you like cozy mysteries set in Cambridge or Oxford.

    4. I enjoyed reading this book great entertainment Maybe not the best literature a tad heavy handed in relating economic theory to everyday life It is akin to Agatha Christie doing introductory economics in a murder mystery

    5. I think I would have enjoyed this book if I had a working knowledge of the history of economics or an interest in economics But still the characters, setting, and tone were delightfully old fashioned.

    6. Much better than the previous book in the series The Fatal Equilibrium , this book has a mixture of horrible corniness with some good suspense and tension One problem is that the focus can jump around a bit erratically It s odd, but doesn t really detract from the reading experience.

    7. Just ok the middle was the strongest I enjoyed most of the economics parts, but at times they seemed a little unnatural in the dialogue Sounds like the first two books were better based on other reviews I look forward to finding them.

    8. Found that the premise was interesting but the writing is very stilted cold The protagonist was not interesting Just never engaged my interest and only finished from determination Won t read other books in the series.

    9. The appearance of Jeremy Bentham s auto icon had me reminiscing about my UCL days Enjoyable but predictable.

    10. Sometimes, you just want to read a fun book that doesn t make you think too much This is a perfect book if you have a minor interest in microeconomics.
