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.

Ri by Anja Gruber

 A long, long time ago I wrote a fan fiction story for Star Trek and I created a character called Ri Ratan,  I sent the story to my friend Anja and asked her to do some pictures for it and for Ri she drew me.  Ri became my pen name and the rest is history. (Above is the original sketch.)

Come, Tell Me How You LiveCome, Tell Me How You Live by Agatha Christie Mallowan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is such a fun book, I read it quickly. I love learning how the archaeology worked back then and the way they explored Syria and how much fun and adventure they had.

Now to start with the tough stuff; If you read books written long ago, one thing you have to learn is to accept that they will be filled with prejudices of the time. I don’t think that Agatha was really prejudiced, she truly loved Syria and the people there, but her way of expressing herself was of that time. If you read her novels you see how they change, they become more understanding, the way she describes people becomes more modern and less prejudiced. I believe that was because of her travels and her love of learning about new people and new things. It is a lesson I learned from traveling with my parents and then on my own, if you travel open-hearted with a sense of adventure, you learn about other people and cultures and you become a more rounded person.

I see a lot of evidence of it in Agatha Christie’s writings. And I really enjoyed seeing the way Syria was way back then before the “IS” got a hold of it, and destroyed it. (which breaks my heart, I kept looking up the sites that Max was working on, to see if they were still there, most had been destroyed or mostly destroyed. His life’s work and the work of four generations of archaeologists destroyed. History does not just belong to one culture, it belongs to everyone, it is part of the historical record of the human species. To destroy it is just utterly heartless. A crime against humanity.

Now to the fun part; I loved her humor, how she made fun of herself and everyone else. The glimpse of the marriage between her and Max. The beauty of the places she went to, the marigolds, the wonderful clothes of the Kurd women, the sweetness of the people, the crazy scrapes the workers got into. The great descriptions of the archaeology at the time. (I have a lesser degree in archaeology and it was one of the reasons I really, really wanted to read this book, that plus my love of Agatha and my curiosity about Max.) The way the finds were split between the expositions and the people of the country they were in. Pretty fair really. (Not like the old days in the 1800’s where people just took stuff for their universities and museums without the permission of the country or the people. ) It is a fascinating read and I highly recommend it.

The Mysterious Mr. Quin (Harley Quin, #1)The Mysterious Mr. Quin by Agatha Christie
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I have always have had a mystical side to my nature. I love magic and mystery. So a perfect series of stories, (which according to Agatha Christie, was never meant to be a series,) is the Harley Quin short stories. You never know what your going to get when you read them. Romance? Adventure? Mystery? Scandal? Death? It has all of it, very charmingly told through the eyes of an older man who has not really lived life but observed it, Mr. Satterhwaite. Until he meets the mysterious Mr. Quin, he really feels that is his lot in life to observe and listen. He knew a lot of important people, appreciated beauty, listened to some of the greatest stories by just being a good listener, but he had never really lived a life that he felt was complete. Until one day he met Mr. Quin and through his encouragement (though Mr. Quin denied it,) he discovered he could be part of the drama, not just a part of it, but a pivotal part.

I won’t tell you what the dramas are, you have to read the book.

My Book Reviews;

The Harlequin Tea Set and Other Stories (Hercule Poirot, #44)The Harlequin Tea Set and Other Stories by Agatha Christie
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I only knew one of the nine short stories in this anthology, The Mystery of The Spanish Chest which I had read in another anthology of Poirot stories. I am not horror person so I was a not a fan of those but I thought The Actress was really clever, I liked it. The House of Dreams was utterly heartbreaking. I loved The Lonely God! So sweet. Manx Gold was a lot of fun, I love that she created a real life treasure hunt, and created a story full of clues, see if you can guess where everything is before you get to the end where all the explanations are, I couldn’t. Within a Wall was also heartbreaking. I adore Harley Quinn so I was delighted to find I had never read this story, and it is really sweet and a bit scary, just like Mr. Quinn himself.

I totally recommend it ūüôā

An AutobiographyAn Autobiography by Agatha Christie
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is about the third time I read her autobiography and it is interesting that I pluck new things out of it each time. This time I recognized two characters from one of my favorite books that I just kind of glossed over the last time.

Also I really enjoyed her view of travel and the middle east. It makes me sort of sad because some of those very sites, that her husband worked so hard on were destroyed recently. And she brings all the beauty and people of the region to life for the reader.

As your read her novels you see her grow and change with her experiences, and as you read her autobiography you see where that growth came from.

Excellent read.

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 ūüôā

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 ūüôā (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‚ÄôS 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.
