The Cuckoo's Calling - Robert Galbraith DNFI can't. I can't suffer through this any longer.I can say, without a doubt, it didn't matter to me who the author was. There was just nothing to the story. No sense of urgency. Nothing to give me a reason to sit on the edge of my seat, flipping to the next page, staying up all night to figure out what happened.The characters were cool, and some of the details were very interesting and well done.Besides the lack of any urgency, there was so much telling and absolutely no showing, it made the story unbearable to read. I felt no connection to anything because I was simply told, over and over, how things happened, or how things might have happened. If you liked this (because of Rowling or because of the story), that's fine. It just wasn't for me.
