A Presumption of Death (Lord Peter Wimsey/Harriet Vane, #2)A Presumption of Death by Jill Paton Walsh


I have enjoyed all the books of the series written by Jill Paton Walsh but I have to say this is the weakest one. I figured out who did it about halfway through the book. Unlike Gaudy Night, where Harriet was very interesting through the first half of the book and in this one I truly missed both Peter and Bunter. Once they show up things pick up and it become very enjoyable but it is more then half way through and that was really hard on the reader.

I won’t tell how they showed up or where or why because that would be spoilers but they were very enjoyable reunions. I do like the way that Ms Walsh writes all the characters she really understands them and I feel that Dorothy Sayers is there in spirit but I am sorry of the books she had written this book is not my favorite because of the plot and really the lack of the zing in the story line. (I do love all the others she wrote so I am being extremely honest here.)

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.

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!
