The Great Gatsby

Fitzgerald, F. Scott
I only read this because of a referential quote in Painted Ladies by Robert B. Parker. I missed have missed the quote when I read it, though. The story is ok, but I keep picturing Robert Redford speaking as Gatsby. I found The Text Of The Great Gatsby section, by Matthew J. Bruccoli, very informative about textual errors and the editing and un-editing of them.

The Long Secret

Fitzhugh, Louise
I'm sure I read Harriet the Spy, but it is not listed here. Perhaps it was before 1998. This was rather long and boring (to me), a "people" book rather than an action story (with spaceships!). Secrets are discovered, realizations are realized. Harriet is oblivious. I wanted to use "rather" in there, but I already used in once. That would be repetitive.

Halt's Peril

Flanagan, John
Ranger's Apprentice, book nine. I didn't read book eight yet, so this was a bit of a spoiler. Will and Halt and Horace are chasing after the cult guy that apparently caused all the furor in the previous volume in the series, which I may have mentioned I haven't read yet.

5/2011

The Battle For Skandia

Read:

The Emperor Of Nihon-Ja

Flanagan, John
Ranger's Apprentice book ten. Will and the gang end up in a place not un-like feudal Japan helping out Horace. Romance rears its head!

Read:

6/2011

The Hunters

Flanagan, John
Brotherband Chronicles book three. Hal and the crew continue chasing that pirate who's last name starts with a "Z" up, or maybe down, some river that I can't really visualize. SPOILER: Everyone gets a hat.

Read:

The Icebound Land

Flanagan, John
Ranger's Apprentice, book three. Will and what's-her-name are slaves in Skandia. Still holding my interest!

Read:

The Invaders

Flanagan, John
Sounds like a sci-fi TV show! Book three of the Brotherband Chronicles. Hal and the Heron chase the pirate Zavac. Hal, or maybe Stig, may have a romance blossoming in a future book.

The Lost Stories

Flanagan, John
Several short stories from the Ranger's Apprentice series fill in some background and tie-up some loose ends. Very nice!

Seek

Fleischman, Paul
Rob seeks closure with the father who abandoned him and his mother before he was born. Lots of interesting radio stuff. Mentions HCJB, QSL card, AM DXing, and pirate radio. Rob starts his own pirate station. Written in the form of a radio play would be more accurate. There is a photo on the cover of the author when he was a boy with headphones on, listening to short wave radio.

Read:

The Borning Room

Fleischman, Paul
Georgina, an Ohio farm girl in the 1800s, recounts her life as events that took place in the room set aside for birthing and dying. Very good.
