Book Review; 

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (Harry Potter, #3)Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K. Rowling
I have to admit this has always been my favorite of the series. I think because of two of the new characters and what they mean to Harry. I also love how Hermione has grown up and she really is becoming her own person. Of course like any preteen she makes major mistakes like taking too many classes, but that just makes you love her more and relate to her more. Poor Harry really goes through the ringer and I appreciate J.K Rowling allows this young man to be competent but make mistakes and be downright confused. I love how he reacts in a certain part when Hermione takes him on a certain trip, (sometimes it is really hard to avoid spoilers.) Ron has always been us to me. He says what the audience would say and reacts the way we do too. It’s hard not to love them. This is the story that you see a glimpse of the adults they will become. I adore Lupin, he is very real to me. Like my best teachers, the ones that always made me think.

Anything else I say would give the game away, but it is my favorite and an exquisite story.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Harry Potter, #1)Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I re-read this for the first time in a long time. I read the original about a year after it came out, and I loved it and gave to other family members. We were all hooked.

I love the movies very much and they are very faithful but it is texture and depth you can never really transfer to film. It is hard to convey the inner world of the characters. I found in reading it again that you can see how confused Harry is, how innocent and yet how brave with more understanding the books. Also their being quite British, the characters rarely show how they truly feel on the outside, you can see it in their eyes, because they are all wonderful actors, so you feel the depth and pain as you look into their eyes. But in a book, you feel it in your gut, it tears your heart out.

I lost my parents since I first read this book, I am not a child, and I was lucky to have my parents for a good majority of my life so I can’t compare to Harry’s pain. He never really knew his parents at all and slowly he gets to know them through others who did, through out the series that knowledge builds. He loves them even more deeply in the later books, but in this book, all he has ever known is their loss. And the ugly untrue rantings of a jealous sister and her cruel idiotic husband. These two people (“The worst muggles in the world!”) abused this baby for 10 years. He hadn’t known love since his parents died, so it is a miracle that he is full of love, kindness, and thoughtfulness. His parents are a part him despite his cruel upbringing from his horrid Aunt and Uncle. And the abuse he suffered from a spoiled, arrogant, egotistical bully of a cousin.

I love so many the characters first and foremost Harry, Ron and Hermione. I am the most like Hermione Granger I think, but because I am book worm and was always different. Still am. I remember only a few years ago a colleague from work and I went out to lunch. We had time so we went shopping and I picked out a necklace, she tilted her head and said, “It is like you, different.” Left handed compliments…sigh, they are something I learned to read early, so out of the three of them, I think I understand Hermione best.

But my favorite has always been Hagrid. He was just a sweet teddy bear, and I have always adored that kind of character. Sweet, kind, a gentle giant, full of a quiet hard earned wisdom, (though he was not book smart, he was life smart) I just adore him.

An exciting time!

Sherri’s Playhouse presents a very short tiny play called Dowry! It was originally for an under 10 minute play writing contest. But it was so personal and special I decided to do it on Sherri’s Playhouse. It is a very short re-imagining of the founding of my family in the US. It was a very personal project and I am very interested in chatting with my cast about bringing the stories of my Grandma to life; http://tobtr.com/11417347  Then I presented it on  Sherri’s Playhouse a very short tiny play called Dowry ; http://tobtr.com/11422435

 

My poem in Flapper Press;

Broken — by Sherri Rabinowitz

Broken like a bird with a broken wing

Even a missing feather

The poor little thing can’t fly

I feel broken

Alone

Unloved

Not able to fly

I am the bird with the broken wing

Broken Alone

Death on the Nile (Hercule Poirot, #17)Death on the Nile by Agatha Christie
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I re-read this book recently and I realized how complicated it was. Much more so then any of the televised versions of the book. The characters are not paper cut outs, there is depth here and she has to give a complete picture of what happens to the people who survive this fatal voyage.

I think that is the part I focused on this time, the survivors. What becomes of them. And in a time just before war what might happen to them. It seems such a happy pleasant ending for these survivors, but there are storm clouds brewing and she projects it into the book but very cleverly through characters you might not believe. Not because they are liars or don’t know what they are talking about but because they go on and on about it. I can see that today. The world is so crazy right now, people are worried and they are passionate about it and I don’t blame them. But I have friends, who I truly respect, but they only talk about the problems, when I quietly asked, “What can we do about it?” They reply, “we need to fight it.” I agree, but it is straining to hear them go on and not have one idea in their head on how to fix it. So she uses that to project, so its there, yet you’re not taking it seriously. Its ingenious, really.

Also this time, I really looked at the first victim more closely, she is basically a good person but she had been given everything on a platter all her life and everyone scrambles to jump to do what she says. It has made her grow arrogant and rather full of herself. She has no idea what down to earth means, she has never been exposed to it.

I also believe reading between the lines, that she has always been something of beau snatcher. Her ex-friend, now arch enemy basically states she would do what she did and that it had always been a part of the plan. An intricate part of the plan, if she does not steal her fiancee then the plan would not work.

Also poor Rosalie, she has this tough life with her mother, then she falls for an unavailable man. I mean really, it takes Poirot to point out to him that he loves her. I hope that one works out for her, but I am not sure, he does not seem to be able to think for himself. I always hope for lovers.

Anyway, these are my theories and ideas about the plot. On my I don’t know how many re-reads. I hope it gives you some pause to say, hmmm, I didn’t think of that. 🙂

Postern of Fate (Tommy and Tuppence, #5)Postern of Fate by Agatha Christie
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed reading this book, when I first read it I had no idea that it was her very last book. I love the glimpses of her real childhood. It is a fun book with some thoughts that fits today’s world quite well, which is very sad, it means after 40 years the world is still in the same mess it has always been in. Which is basically what she talks about in the book. Oh, and I don’t agree with the reviewers of the time, it is not at all boring or banal.

I love that even in old age that Tommy and Tuppence are very much the same. And I love it all started with sorting out books from moving into a new place, and deciding what to keep and what to give away. I related to that because I had a similar thing happen to me recently. It is a really good mystery, very much worthy of the Queen of Crime and I highly recommend it.

 

 

 

 

 

By the Pricking of My Thumbs by Agatha Christie

I haveBy the Pricking of My Thumbs (Tommy and Tuppence, #4) read this before and enjoyed it, but recently I saw a movie of it, they added Miss Marple and changed the characters so that they were almost unrecognizable as our Tommy and Tuppence. Since there were first rate actors in it (whom I truly respect a lot,) I gave it a chance but it didn’t just disappoint me, it truly upset me.

So I decided to read it again, and it was just as fun and delightful as I remembered it. First of all Tommy and Tuppence though more mature were still true to their basic core of being in love and a team. I loved that. And she made a point that just because you became older didn’t mean you didn’t passionately love your life partner. I loved that too! Tuppence, as Tommy called her was still a terrier and went after what she was investigating with true vigor. She was brilliant, though she got herself in real trouble, even then she handled it all superbly.

Tommy was still a steady, reliable fellow, who not only respected his wife and but adored her. When she doesn’t come home, he pulls out everything he has in bag of tricks to find her. And of course faithful Albert is there, with his chicken dinners. Albert actually came up with an important lead.

I can’t really tell you more but it was lovely. I actually stayed up to 3 am last night to finish it, because I had forgotten parts (it’s been a while) and wanted to finish it before I went to bed.

Central to NowhereCentral to Nowhere by D.J. Blackmore
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

D.J. Blackmore’s; “CENTRAL TO NOWHERE” is a wonderful read created around a remote Australian station made which made me wish I could see it in person.

Ivy was hoping she to make a fresh start and turn herself into an experienced cowhand. Her new boss Adam O’Rourke despite how ill-suited she was found himself drawn to her against his will.

There is a lot of pain in this novel. Its about broken families, broken pasts and Alzheimer’s breaking a once strong mind.

Very intense but a good read, I had to read it in bits because some of it was intense but it is a heart filled book.

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.

New Review;

Hercule Poirot's Christmas (Hercule Poirot, #20)

Hercule Poirot’s Christmas by Agatha Christie
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

It’s funny how despite the fact you have read a novel before, if you have seen an adaption on TV it overrides the memory of the written word. This is not the first time that my memory of the series has wiped out my memory of the book.

Though I loved the adaption with David Suchet, I love the novel more. It’s richer, has more characters and they are all quite different then the people in the adaption. (I do recommend the TV adaption though it is exquisitely done and perfect for this time of year, despite the murder.)

The characters of David and Hilda were taken out of the show completely which is really sad because I really like them a lot. They are really interesting and there is a lot there that to adds to the tension and the plot.

Also I love that the romance that lights up again between Alfred and Lydia, so sweet.

I knew who the murderer was of course from my first read and the adaption but it was done in such a way that I questioned my memory till Poirot revealed it.

Superb novel, love Dame Agatha as always.

Agatha ChristieAgatha Christie by Gillian Gill
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I enjoyed this very much, an interesting thoughtful portrait of a very complex lady who wanted no one, to really know what was going on inside her mind. Can’t blame her really.

I found the insights very striking and unlike some of the reviews I did not at all find it at all boring. It was very interesting, indeed.

I thought how she used the Mary Westmacott novels to explain the inner working of Agatha’s mind quite well though out and it was not the first time, Agatha’s own daughter said if you really wanted to understand her mother, you need to read the Mary Westmacott novels.

While I didn’t at mind that the author Gillian Gill, gave the plot-lines and outcomes in those stories since I have not read them and don’t mind spoilers, I was stunned that she gave way not only the plot-lines but the murderers in Agatha’s mysteries. I am a huge Christie fan, which is why I read this and yet I have to admit I have not read all her books, and for her to give away the killer, not in one book, but in several books was shocking, and quite disappointing.

Otherwise an excellent biography.

I saw a show about the women who painted the glow in the dark dials for watches in WW1 and suffered in the hands of corporation who wanted to hide the truth of the product.  It was also the inspiration of my favorite episodes Miss Fisher Murder Mysteries;  The Ghost Girls; https://rismovieblog.wordpress.com/2018/12/19/the-ghost-girls/
