Two new 4 star ratings for my novel Murder Inc.!

 

 

 

 

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/

Reviews for latest reads;

Partners in Crime (Tommy and Tuppence #2)Partners in Crime by Agatha Christie

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.

 

I, Samantha, Take This Mortal, DarrinI, Samantha, Take This Mortal, Darrin by Adam-Michael James

I really enjoyed this thoughtful closing to a wonderful series. The author who has been a guest on my show and is truly an expert on Bewitched and describes the universe of Samantha and Darrin beautifully. He has created a wonderful two-part ending of the series. He brings back a lot of favorites and delightfully explains anything that the fans might have had questions on through the years of the show. I have loved Bewitched since I was a tiny little girl and I still love it, it’s a definite must for any Bewitched fan.
