Reading progress update: I've read 5%.
The Man in the Brown Suit - Agatha Christie

Tell me this gets better!

So far I am bored listening to the story narrated by Anne Beddingfield. We just hear about how her father died from pneumonia.

MY REVIEW

 

Duffy Brown in Tandem Demise takes us to real places and lets us meet some real people, soooo, if you have ever been to Mackinac Island, you will feel right at home, except for the dead guy.

 

I love these quirky characters and the mystery to die for.

 

Especially Eve. She is a real hoot. She fits the definition of a cozy character to a tee. A fumbling, amateur detective, a bit nosy and known for it by all. No place is safe from her prying eyes. She sees dead people. She believes she lives under a black cloud. Does it put her in danger? Of course.

 

The humorous, snappy dialogue kept the action moving and the entertainment at a high level with laugh out loud moments.

 

I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of Tandem Demise by Duffy Brown.

Boarding Schools: "Tom Brown's Schooldays" by Thomas Hughes
The Brown`s schooldays - Thomas Hughes


(Original Review, 1981-01-22)



The issue of class and elitism (subjects dear to my heart) are, paradoxically, less important in these boarding school books than the fact that the children/teenagers are on a metaphorical island. They are without what in fictional terms is either the safety belt of having parents to look after them if they get into scrapes or of the social realism of having to deal with boring, dull, irritating parents in the form and shape the reader is likely to meet.

Cooks and Boxrooms: "Father Brown Stories" by G. K. Chesterton
Father Brown Stories (Penguin Popular Classics) - G.K. Chesterton



(Original Review, 1981-01-05)



When I was 9 or 10 I loved reading about Sherlock, Father Brown, Pop Larkin, Billy Bunter, Bertie and Jeeves, Just William, etc., etc. Also E. Nesbit. At the same time there was a range of Puffin books that gave me Erik the detective, the dalmatians, One End Street and others. And there was the Children's Book Club -- a monthly hardback volume -- those titles seem to have disappeared, but I half remember them and would be fascinating to revisit them.
