I love Louise Penny and am reading her Chief Inspector Gamache novels in order, so I made a chronological list without paying much attention. When The Hangman’s turn came up, my local library didn’t have it, so I ordered the Kindle version. I started reading it and immediately noticed it hadn’t picked up the thread of the previous novels. Now, all of these can be stand alone, but the characters are developed as one goes along, so references to past events are made. I also noticed this one just didn’t have that deep level of philosophical thought and character development. Even descriptions seemed a little off. Then I was shocked to find it was so short–a novella–which I hadn’t noticed when I ordered it. Now, all this might seem critical of a book to which I awarded 5 starts…but, I discovered AFTER finishing it that The Hangman was actually written for adult new readers and used a lower grade level of vocabulary. Wow! Holding it to that standard was something else. As a retired librarian, I have read several ANR (adult new reader) books and this one was so much better than any others I’ve read. It did not “talk down” to me and while I missed the usual French words and phrases found in her books, realizing this was also for French speakers to learn/practice English, allowed me to accept that easily. My respect for Ms Penny only grew once I realized she had written an easy-to-read book in English for those learning the language (or just learning to read at all) that was so compelling. We need more ANRs of this caliber.
Not like the other Gamache books – but there’s a good reason.

Recently I finished All The Devils Are Here, the last of the current series of sixteen Inspector Gamache books by Louise Penny. The series is excellent, building in quality and depth book after book. So it was with some curiosity that I decided to read this novella, sometimes referred to as Book 6.5, to return to an earlier time in Three Pines.
The Hangman was published between Bury Your Dead and A Trick Of The Light. As I read it, it felt like an outline for a book that didn’t fully develop in the way that most of the Gamache novels have. It certainly works as a story and some of the primary characters are there, but it feels abrupt and reads rushed. I thought that perhaps it was meant to keep readers interested between books, since each one takes, justifiably, time to write and publish. Or perhaps it was a story that just didn’t require development in the way other Penny books have.
Since beginning this review, I have read that this story was written for a special literacy project to specifications for adult emerging readers. That makes sense to me from the standpoint of the subject, simplicity of language, and length. Based on this information, this is a fine work indeed. However, for a Louise Penny reader like me, I wish I had done more research on the story before I read it.
I wish now that I had heard about and read this book in its position after Bury Your Dead. I found Bury Your Dead to be so heart-wrenching that a less involving follow-up might have eased me out of that story and into A Trick Of The Light. Since that did not happen, all I can say is that The Hangman felt like a far lesser work than what I’ve adjusted to in Penny’s other works. For those of you who are serious Louise Penny fans, please read the book anyway, knowing that it is not nearly as in-depth or all-encompassing as the other books, but there are very good reasons for that.

OK mystery, but not worthy of Penny

If you’ve heard of Louise Penny and wonder why her Inspector Gamache mysteries are so popular, don’t start with this one, or you’ll never know what the fuss is about. This is a novella, really not much more than a long short story, tucked somewhere in the middle of the series. It’s an OK mystery, though I did guess the answer to the puzzle somewhat before the end, but it lacks the trademark character development, both among the series characters and among those specific to each story, that appears in her novels.
The story includes only two of Penny’s police regulars and two of the denizens of Three Pines, her rural-Quebec version of Brigadoon, and it barely hints at the depth in which these characters are presented in the novels. (I particularly missed my favorite Three Pines character, grumpy elderly poet Ruth.) The mystery surrounding the main standalone character (the body found at the beginning of the story) is interesting and unraveled layer by layer with proper deliberation, but that’s about it.
Just before I posted this review, I noticed another review saying that the novella was written for “emerging adult readers” and was kept at a simple reading level intentionally. I don’t remember seeing that before I bought it. I didn’t really notice the lower reading level, only the lack of character development. It may have a place for that particular audience, and my hat is off to Penny for trying to address their needs. However, unless you fit in that category or are such a die-hard Penny fan that you want to read everything she’s written about Inspector Gamache & Co. (which I could understand), I’d still recommend not bothering with this.
Either one or two things…

…have happened with Louise Penney’s last novel and this novella. Either she has somehow lost the world’s most incredibly talented Editor or she has given up the series to the world’s least talented ghostwriter. I will enjoy rereading all of the novels up until the last. They were so beautiful and magical…all 4 and 5 star reviews from me. Lyrical, even. I love them so much that I’ll start with Still Life again just to was the bad taste out of my mouth. How nice it would be to have a little “Gamache”-type integrity from Penney’s camp. Perhaps they could address the elephant in the room that is the devolvement of Penney’s writing-and not bit by bit or book by book. The downfall is the equivalent of sliding down the side of the Grand Canyon. I believe Ms. Penney would find we are a forgiving and loyal fan base. But not if we are lied to or ignored. What is happening here? We, the fans, treasure the books for the strong values set by Gamache. Can’t those who benefit from him have the decency to honor the legacy they created? Until then, count me as absolutely finished.
