Poetry;

Spirit of a Dandelion Petal

— Sherri Rabinowitz

Such a pretty flower,

It looks like any other,

But when one blows gently,

It flies apart, sensationally!

You want to cry,

It is a tragedy, but no, as you see the petals part,

you give an amazed start!

Because each petal is itself,

an individual,

whole and complete,

a dream like spirit that

flies its own path.

Each petal is an angel of beauty,

Fluttering in its own very short flight,

to freedom.

Review;

Absent in the SpringAbsent in the Spring by Mary Westmacott
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is a very good book, very gripping. I am not sure why this book is under the category of romance, they are gripping, searing personal dramas. Agatha ripped the facade that this woman erected around herself, it is done slowly, plotted very naturally. It so gripping I could not stop reading it, even though it is very disturbing. The desert in the story reminds me of a police integration room with the spotlight centered on the suspect. Except there is no suspect, just a human being stripped bare to find her own inner core. This does not really give any plot points away, it is just my reaction to it, (other then effect of the desert on her,) you need read it to find out what she finds out and how she reacts to it. It certainly made me cry and react. I wonder it if it will do the same to you?

Dorothy L. Sayers: The Complete StoriesDorothy L. Sayers: The Complete Stories by Dorothy L. Sayers
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I enjoyed re-reading this delightful collection.

Of course is The Lord Peter Wimsey stories that I had never read before the first time I read it and the wonderful stories of married life of Harriet and Peter. As always Peter solves all the various puzzles with aplomb.

I had never even heard of the Montague Egg stories. They are adorable. Egg is a traveling wine and spirits salesman who runs into all sorts of mysteries mysteries as he makes his sales calls. “The salesman who will use his brains will spare himself a world of pains,” and with this book he solves very puzzling mysteries.

I’m not really that big a fan of the last group of stories of stand alones, they’re much darker than the Wimseys and the Eggs and they are not my cup of tea but they are very well written of course.

I really like Sayers style, the puzzles are always fun and the humor is full of wit and fun. Great read!

The Haircut Who Would Be King by Robert Trebor
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was a fun and a very interesting satire. He combined what is happening in a humorous, fictional cloth. Very much like Mark Twain and Will Rogers he spun a tale with humor and a great deal of wit but there was just a sharp enough edge so you know it was couched in the reality of our time.

Towards Zero (Superintendent Battle, #5)Towards Zero by Agatha Christie
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I can’t believe that I owned this book and I have never read it before. I loved it! It had me looping back and forth between every character in the house. But I never guessed the killer. I think it was a fascinating study in psychology by the great Agatha Christie. The clues were there, the little slips but they seemed so normal that I did not pick them up.

Also I really enjoyed the two romances in the book that were not central to murder, I was happy that Mary had some romance, finally.

Also the man at the beginning of the book who you can’t really figure out what his part in it is till it is revealed. I think he is my favorite character for many reasons that I can’t reveal or it will give it away. But I really, really like him.

Also I find it interesting that Agatha Christie’s view on suicide that she had in The Harley Quin’s short story “The Man From The Sea,” is repeated here. And it really touched me both times, quite beautiful.

Cards on the Table (Hercule Poirot, #15)Cards on the Table by Agatha Christie

This is another one of those times when the episodes with David Suchet are so strong in my mind, that I think I have read the book, but I didn’t. I was reading a biography of Agatha Christie and when they were speaking of certain plot points in Cards On The Table, I realized that, A. they changed the plot for the TV show and B. I never read it.

I really enjoyed it on several levels. First it was fun to meet the four sleuths in their introductions. The four sleuths in the novel, whom I have enjoyed for many years but it was interesting to read the way she described them for the very first time. And the characters of the four suspects which were pretty much the same, except that they weren’t…I am being circumspect because I don’t want to give too much away, but there are more killings in this book then in the TV show and one of the killings was done in a way I really didn’t expect at all.

Excellent book, I really highly recommend it. It is a lot of fun to watch the other sleuths as opposed to Poirot. As he uses misdirection and psychology to catch the killer.

The Mousetrap and Other PlaysThe Mousetrap and Other Plays by Agatha Christie
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I had only read one of the Agatha Christie plays that she had adapted for the stage and that was because I was in it; Murder on the Nile. I was so excited to be in the play and I had the script of just that play, so I had no idea how many of her plays she herself had adapted. The first thing I noticed when I read it, and I was stunned by it, is that she took out Hercule Poirot. She replaced him with Canon Pennyfather from the novel; At Bertram’s Hotel. Because the Cannon was a rather dithering old man very different from the one in the play I was very startled by this, but they were her characters so I figured she could do what she wanted. This play is not in this edition that is why I felt I could talk about it a bit more since I am not giving away anything in the plot so no spoilers here.

This is book is a masterclass on adaption, she gets all the important information in these plays but it is subtly changed to be more suitable for stage. And there are changes, a lot of them, so hold on to your hats if you read the novels.

The three plays I liked best were;  (which is the book; Five Little Pigs.) All the plays in this collection are excellent but these are the plays and novels that touched me most.

The Hollow has the least changes, and my favorites are still Midge and Edward, I am sorry but the rest are really hard for me to really relate to, I just love these two. They are adorable. The detective in it is Inspector Colquohoun with the help of Sergeant Penny who take over the duties of the famous Belgian sleuth they replaced. The mystery is well done, but it is changed so it will take place in one or two rooms. Excellent construction and she somehow gets all the really tense bits in despite the very confined area because of it being on the stage.

The second one is Go Back To Murder, The daughter of Caroline and Amyas is Carla, like the novel not Lucy like the film. It follows the line of the novel except in the play she aided by Justin Fogg (who I find utterly adorable), son of the lawyer who led Caroline Crale’s defense. This play is pretty much the same, but I just love the relationship between Justin and Carla, it is lovely to watch it develop. It is part of Christie’s brilliance I believe that she can create a believable relationship so quickly. They are at odds in the beginning and totally a unit by the end of the play. Again the staging is fascinating, all of Christie’s ideas to use the lighting in order to show the different locations and how the actors should look in the past and in the future. Brilliantly crafted, I can see why she enjoyed writing plays so much, she was really wonderful at it.

And last but not least is Towards Zero, she actually takes out my favorite character, I was disappointed by that but it is a really wonderful play. Again it is pretty much the same plot this time with the same detective, Inspector Battle, the same as the book really but I really just enjoyed the artistry of the transfer to stage she used. Still catching the killer once again in a confined area of the stage. Rather brilliantly managed.

If you’re a playwright and novelist this is the book for you, to learn to adapt your work. If you’re an actor or just appreciate a wonderful play its fascinating. If your Christie fan it is worth it, just to see the changes and the things she does not change. A little bit for everyone!

Unfinished PortraitUnfinished Portrait by Mary Westmacott
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was such a difficult story to read because I knew it was based on Agatha Christie herself, her own life and feelings. And how Archie Christie truly hurt her so deeply in the end, at the worst time he could possible do it. Also how he just seemed to be blind to anything but his own thoughts and feelings. It really tore at my heart.

There is a strange connection between “Unfinished Portrait”, a Harley Quin short story called; “Man from The Sea” and “Towards Zero. ” I read them one after another. They all have a suicide attempt that is stopped, in two of the stories the place for it is exactly the same and in two of the stories, the same philosophy against suicide is the same. Has anyone else pondered this? I never read it in an article or a book about Christie.

I thought it very interesting too, that she incorporated her own nightmare of the gun man, and the interesting twist she gave it. I will not add any spoilers to this review but if you want to know how Agatha Christie felt about what happened to her in 1926, this is the book to read.

 

 

If You Ask Me (And of Course You Won't)If You Ask Me by Betty White

The Thirteen Problems (Miss Marple, #2)The Thirteen Problems by Agatha Christie
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

There is something special about this introduction of Agatha Christie’s second great sleuth; Miss Marple. Introduced through a series of short stories that allows you to truly get to know her. Her intelligence, compassion and humor. Her sweet expression belied by her sharp blue eyes as she sits quietly knitting almost forgotten by the others in the room. Even when she says she really had no idea what the solution was, she really did. Some people don’t enjoy reading short stories but I always have. It helps you to learn all the different sides of characters. And it teaches you just what an art the creating of a short story truly is and Agatha Christie was genius at it.

Five Little Pigs (Hercule Poirot, #25)Five Little Pigs by Agatha Christie
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Five Little Pigs is one of my favorite stories. I first saw the David Suchet version on TV, and just fell in love with it because though it takes place in the 1930’s, the action of the piece takes place in one of my favorite eras the 1920’s. It is a fascinating look at how people see a catastrophic event differently.

There are differences of course between the book and the show. The name of daughter is different and several other little things, especially the way it ends but essentially it is the same story. I find how she has the same story again and again and again, 5 times really, and each is different because each person who tells it is different and see is in their own way.

I also find it fascinating how an open and closed case changes when you listen to the personal versions because you see things that of course the lawyers would never have even have thought to ask of each witness. And several incredibly important facts are not apart of the trial.

I won’t tell any more because I don’t want to give away the plot. But I can see why this was one of Agatha Christie’s favorites. Such a complex and intricate plot. Brilliant.

Partners in Crime (Tommy and Tuppence #2)Partners in Crime by Agatha Christie
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I do not have an accurate count of how many times I have read this wonderful romp. It is my go to book for a troubled heart. I really defy anyone who is down in the mouth, to read one of the short stories in this and not to be touched or smiling at the antics of Tuppence and Tommy. One of my favorites.
