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.

Murder and Mendelssohn (Phryne Fisher, #20)Murder and Mendelssohn by Kerry Greenwood

I really enjoyed this adventure, it was fun getting to see Phryne take on a Sherlock Holmes type and really showing him that he had it all wrong. We meet her dear friend from the war who she comforts and is there for when he needs her. We get to find about her spy days and meet some of the spooks of her past. Of course, the framework is the choir, which of course Phryne joins to figure out who was the killer. And it was lovely to have so much of Jack Robinson in it, her favorite detective and her dear friend in the books. (In this book more then others that I have read he is closer to the Jack Robinson of the TV series. Especially when it comes to food.)

Dalai Lama on What Matters Most: Conversations on Anger, Compassion, and ActionDalai Lama on What Matters Most: Conversations on Anger, Compassion, and Action by Noriyuki Ueda

When I was in college I studied under a professor who was good friends with His Holiness, so when he came to the US, he spoke to our class. Our class was a senior class so it was tiny, “The Peoples Of India,” and our professor got some amazing speakers. So we were all excited to meet the Dalai Lama, but we thought of it as part of our class and no one was awe struck, as I heard from people who saw him at UCLA later during that same trip.

The man was a kind, with a beautiful smile, a great sense of humor and who explained his religion and the difficulties his people were having with China. He was real, down to earth, extremely knowledgeable and a delight. I really liked him and his brother who was his translator (though His Holiness spoke English very well.) They were both lovely and I have held that meeting as dear all these years later.

This book is a series of questions and answers, it is very interesting and gives a thorough understanding of Buddhism Beliefs for the layman such as myself. I really found it very thorough and interesting. But what I was missing in it was a sense of the person being interviewed. It was not all the dimensions of a brilliant man, and that did disturb me. But I learned a lot and found the little book most enlightening.

Book Reviews; 

Out on a LimbOut on a Limb by Shirley MacLaine
It’s funny, I have read this book so many times that my copy is dogeared, not by folding down the edge ( I was taught never to do that,) but by being read over and over. I still find it fascinating. I had no idea that some of the people were composites, I always wondered what happened to David. He sort of disappeared in the mountains in the end. I just hoped he made it home alright, I found out later that he was actually several people, so I guess he did.

I know the focus of the book was Shirley and Gerry, (I later found out who he was too, and it was two different men. (at different times.) ) but I found the interaction with Bella Abzug and David much more compelling. And because I was very interested in my own spiritual search when I was in my early twenties, it was my go to book about trance channeling, and other pursuit of spiritual understanding. I was actually in college at the time and my adviser found me reading it a bit worrying, but since I was completely devoted to my education, she put it down to youthful pursuits. Hehehehe.

Well it has been years and I found the romance part a bit difficult to get through. I would have to push myself to read it. Not because of any judgmental feelings but I just wasn’t that interested in that part. (I have had my own life experiences now, so I am not as transfixed as I was when I was a much more innocent 23 year old.) I found some the theories still hold up. And others do not. I still find both David and Bella much more important relationships for Shirley and something that I still learn from. I think that my need to read the book was because of what she had in those friendships and how they were guides (David) and supportive (Bella) to her pursuits and needs. And that is why I gave the book 5 stars. It is the most beautiful part and the part that stands the test of time.

Southern Attraction- The College YearsSouthern Attraction- The College Years by Tracy Kauffman
Southern Attraction-The College Years continues the journey with Heather Brandon and her amazing boyfriend Jake as they go off to college. Heather struggles with insecurities of her past while trying to find a peaceful life. She had dealt with enough heartache to last a lifetime, including losing her parents, and surviving a tornado that ripped apart her new home. She wants Jake to settle down so they can enjoy their life together. Now all she wants to do is live a life of happiness and not worry about the man she loves.

I received the book from the author for an honest review.

The story is very good, the relationship between Jake and Heather showed that you can overcome the obstacles when you believe in each other. PTSD is very real, important and the sufferer’s torment about past happenings, very traumatic. It is also an honest portrayal. It is with knowledge about both the people who suffer from it and those who live with the people who suffer from it and what they go through. It is an important issue that needs to be understood by the public.

I do have to admit that this was a hard book for me to read, the characters were so distant. I know that angst is compelling but there should be some relief, some comic moments. Humor is always a good way for people to survive torment. It is why there is always humor in a thriller, the audience can only take so much. It would make so much easier for the reader.

I do recommend the book, it is a well done depiction of people who love each other, finding their way.

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.

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.
