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.

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 Bridesmaids ~ Inside the Privileged World of Grace Kelly and Six Intimate FriendsThe Bridesmaids ~ Inside the Privileged World of Grace Kelly and Six Intimate Friends by Judith Balaban Quine
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is second time I read this book, (sort of trend because of moving and finding books as I slowly unpack.) I was in my twenties the first time I read it and rather innocent. I was more interested in the glamour and the movie stars then in the real lives.

Now as I mature women I read it very differently. With life experience I actually took in thing I don’t think my younger self could have even understood. Some of the lessons I learned from this book was very much needed. It made me feel more understanding and better about my own up and downs and my losses.

Grace was a beautiful, accomplished, very intelligent woman, she had a full life that contributed a lot in several ways. As much I enjoyed her many and varied accomplishments I really learned from her mistakes. It was a lot to take in.

Laughs, Luck...and Lucy: How I Came to Create the Most Popular Sitcom of All Time (with Laughs, Luck…and Lucy: How I Came to Create the Most Popular Sitcom of All Time by Jess Oppenheimer
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I interviewed Gregg Oppenheimer for my show Chatting With Sherri. It was a charming chat about his dad Jess Oppenheimer and Gregg’s play about Lucy called; “I Love Lucy; A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Sitcom.” So as research I began to read this book.

I truly enjoyed it because it was full of information not just about I Love Lucy, which I love but radio shows with Jack Benny, Fanny Brice, Fred Astaire and ultimately Lucille Ball. It was about the life story of Jess Oppenheimer and his memories of the period of Live Radio which was like catnip to me.

In case you can’t tell I loved this book and in it are recording from My Favorite Wife and I Love Lucy that you can’t hear anywhere else. Definitely worth a read 🙂

By the way, the play I mentioned is also going to be a radio show, isn’t that cool? I can hardly wait!

Aghatha Christie : Evil Under The SunAghatha Christie : Evil Under The Sun by Agatha Christie
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Hi, the way it is put into the system, they put the author’s name wrong and I just wanted to let you know, I know her name is; Agatha Christie 🙂 (But this is the edition I own, so I left it under here.)

This is the third time I have read the novel. It’s been a while and I am a very visual person. I see books as I read them. And Agatha Christie is excellent at painting a picture with her words. Maybe that is why her work translates so easily to film.

I have seen both the Peter Ustinov and David Suchet versions of the story. It’s funny what sticks in your mind, some things from the films completely wipe out what happens in the novel. For instance the summing up, it was completely different in both films from the novel. Where they take place, who he talks to and what he says in the novel is completely different, though the puzzle is of course is the same. I love a good movie and though they were both very different from what she wrote I enjoyed them both. You just don’t realize how your mind juggles things till you re-read it again later.

I don’t want to give away any of the plot but it is a fun “who done it,” with amazing characters. Like all her books, my favorite part in the book that does not happen at all in the movie is very small but important. It will not affect the mystery but it tells you how both Poirot thinks and his creator; He is helping Mrs. Gardener with a puzzle, putting the cut out pieces into place and that act in itself actually helped him figure out the puzzle of the crime. To me it says a lot.

We are now in the midst of rehearsing for an amazing radio play; THE THIEF’S TALE  by Lee Murray. Adapted for audio production by Dan Rabarts. I can’t wait for you to see it next month.

 I still have two amazing radio plays coming up and could use some heavy lifting.  No pay but a lot of exposure and you get to meet people from all over via our rehearsals.  We rehearse on Skype and perform on my Blogtalk platform. It is a lot of fun and we get to act in some truly amazing plays.  We do the radio plays live, it’s a high wire act like live TV back in the day, so if you want to do something completely different, get in touch with me.
