Twelve Red Herrings

Archer, Jeffrey
Twelve short stories, each with a "red herring" to discover, none which I could figure out. But the stories are still pretty good.

Confessions Of A Prairie Bitch

Arngrim, Alison
This was a really good book by the actress that portrayed Nellie on Little House On The Prairie. It's about her life, good and horrible, and what she made of it. Her mother was the voice of Sweet Polly on freakin' Underdog!!!

Hunter's Horn

Arnow, Harriette Simpson
Picked this orphan book off the middle school library shelf. A really rich, detailed story of poor Kentucky hill farmers. One man's obsession with foxhunting, to the detriment of his family, is central to the story. I would like to have learned how his daughter's pregnancy turned out.

Big Sky

Atkinson, Kate
A Jackson Brodie book. Engaging story, full of the usual twists and turns. Honestly, I get to the end and I STILL don't know what is what. Silver BMW, some girl named Darcy, and the title - what does the title mean?

Case Histories

Atkinson, Kate
I like this book very much. There is a lot of sly humor, and some very sad parts. A good mixture. Let me just say I have never thought much of the idea of retiring in another country, though. Everyone in books seems to want to go live in France, or Costa Rica, or Alaska, for cryin' out loud. I am not one of them. Maybe it's the airplane thing, I don't know. I like how the story may be continued a bit in another book, I'll have to get them and see.

Smoke Quote::

He lit a new cigarette from the stub of the old one because he had run out of matches, and faced with a choice between chain-smoking or abstinence, he'd taken the former option because it felt like there was enough abstinence in his life already. -- pg. 45

Quote:

(He always carried tissues, half the people he met seemed to end up in tears). -- pg. 153

One Good Turn

Atkinson, Kate
Great book, surprise ending. It took me until page 317 until I realized who Julia was. And I just read the previous book in April!

Quote:

You had to hand it to the Welrod. When they said "silenced", they meant silenced. -- pg. 370

Transcription

Atkinson, Kate
Juliet gets a job in a spy organization in WWII London. I love the writing, the story was OK, but I didn't care for the ending. I should probably read the ending over again to see it grows on me.

When Will There Be Good News?

Atkinson, Kate
I finished this morning, now I've nothing to read. Lots of twists and turns. I read the large print edition. It is SO MUCH easier than the paperbacks. I was worth driving to the library three cities away to borrow it. Thank goodness for the county library system!

I was reading page 198 when I said out loud, "Who the hell is Tessa?" Well, now we know.

Quote:

Louise was sure that buried deep inside her, lurking in the murky labyrinth of her heart, there was an incredibly well-behaved person wondering when she would ever be let out. Patrick probably wondered the same thing. -- pg. 321

Pride And Prejudice

Austen, Jane
Only took me two weeks to wade through this! I like to see Robert B. Parker take a crack a re-writing this. I finally got excited about the story in the last seventy-five pages, and actually laughed out loud a couple times!
