Death Before Wicket (Phryne Fisher, #10)Death Before Wicket by Kerry Greenwood
My rating: 5 of 5 stars 

This was an usual one because it was in Sydney so it was only Dot there to help out. Jack Robinson was mentioned as source to be referred by but really Phryne is pretty much on her own. I was surprised by the ending, it was not who I thought it was and I didn’t see all the layers of the crime till it was explained by Phryne in a most unusual way. I love archaeology and mythology so it was right up my street so I did enjoy it, and I thought it gave Dot a chance to shine a bit more, since she was looking for her sister. I am looking forward to the next one.

Origin (Robert Langdon, #5)Origin by Dan Brown

This was a really great book but it was also a very troubling book. It was a fun adventure with places I have never even thought about visiting and artists I have never heard of, that part of it was so much fun! I really loved the characters in this book and Robert Langdon’s relationships with them. I love art but like Robert I have been a fan of few modern artists, there are some, because I feel I understand them, but to be truly honest some I will never understand. He introduced to me places I have never been, like Spain, and literature I had never even heard of, as always it was a page turner and it was exciting. And that part of it was so much fun!

The way I feel about Religion and Science is very close to Robert’s that they care deeply about the world around us but they are just going about it differently. I am open to AI, and I found Winston very charming and an interesting character. I am not going to spoil it, but I found parts of the book very disturbing, and I stayed up nights since I read it worrying over it. I am that type of person and I really appreciate Dan Brown opening the conversation and bringing up these very, very important issues especially at this time. I think this is his best book and yet as I said before I felt it is very disturbing at the same time.

More Than Love: An Intimate Portrait of My Mother, Natalie WoodMore Than Love: An Intimate Portrait of My Mother, Natalie Wood by Natasha Gregson Wagner

I have loved Natalie Wood since I was a small child. I saw her on talk shows in the 70’s with Robert Wagner who I also adore, or by herself. She was always funny, intelligent and adorable. She was my favorite actress as kid (I wanted to be an actress, not many brunettes for a brunette who wanted to be an actress to look up to, she was also extremely talented.) My favorite movies are Cash McCall and Love With a Proper Stranger. She was also great in comedy and I adored her in Sex and The Single Girl and Bob, Carol, Ted and Alice. In other words I am a fan.

When Natalie was going to be in Anastasia in LA at the Music Center I was so excited, I squealed when we got the postcard advertising it. (I still have it somewhere.) I lived at home, I was going to college and working but I knew I did not have enough money to go to the play and pay my bills, My Dad promised to get them for the whole family when they came on the market.

Of course that was not to be. I was so stunned when I heard what happened, and heart broken. It is hard to explain, I never met her, or even got a glimpse of her in person.

When all the speculation started with her sister Lana I was shocked, it was obvious she didn’t like Robert Wagner in her book, (which I did read) but she never accused him of anything like she did later. When she accuse him, I was very angry. I am a life long murder mystery fan and what she and the ship’s captain said happened, had way too many holes in it, it made no sense.

I was so excited to read Natasha Gregson Wagner book, I saw the advertisement for it after I saw her HBO special, Natalie Wood, What Remains Behind. I loved all the stuff about Natalie’s life in the documentary, her career and family life. It was beautiful. At the end, I was nodding my head and agreeing with her and the people she was interviewing, they knew best, everyone else in blogs and podcasts are just speculating. The biggest thing for me was that Christopher Walken and Robert Wagner didn’t really like each other and were not friends, why would Christopher back him up, if it was a lie, so I knew that all this fodder was just trumped up stuff, to make money. So sad. And unfair.

So I bought the book, it was very good, it is very hard to write the dark side of your life, the hard stuff for you to grapple with and to do it for the public, wow! I think Nastasha did a great job and she obviously researched her Mom’s life very thoroughly. She is so lucky to have so much, I treasure the pieces I have my parents, I don’t have as much as she does but the bits and pieces are precious. I felt so bad as I read how she had desperately wanted to keep her parents home, that she was scared something would happen to them and then when it did, her life just spiraled.

I also noticed as I read all the things that Lana had wrong, dates that things happened, the bust of James Dean disappearing, (obliviously not true, it was right there in storage,) even what Natalie was wearing on that last Thanksgiving. Also Natasha explaining her attitude to two tiny kids who just lost their Mom, her sister was cold and cruel. It made me realize her book was not true at all.

I love the happy ending for Natalie’s kids though, they deserve it. And I really hope people stop talking about her passing and focus on what great actress she was, maybe even have a Natalie Wood Film Festival. That would be so cool.

Thank you Natasha, from one daughter to another.
