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.

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!
