Poor Miss Finch based on 0 ratings. 3 reviews.
This book is a nice change from the usual Collins mystery. He concentrates on the characters and their reaction to events going on around them. The reader knows who is doing what to whom the for the better part of the book. The only mystery is how the characters will all end up. As dull as this may sound, it is really quite good. This is definitely worth reading if you are a fan of Collins' work.
