The Cat Who Moved the Mountain by Lilian Jackson Braun
The Cat Who Moved a Mountain - Lilian Jackson Braun

Another great light mystery by a master of the genre.

 

Qwill decides to take a vacation and think about where his life needs to go. He has been living in Pickaxe for five years now and he is trying to decide where to go with his life. His goals as a younger man just don't seem as important to him now.

 

On the recommendation of some friends he packs up the cats and heads off to the Potato Mountains. Yup I said the Potato Mountains. The story is much more serious than the name of those mountains.

 

There are two groups, the Spuds and the Taters. The Spuds are from Big Potato Mountain and are interested in development and the money that tourism could bring in. The Taters live on Small Potato and they are old school, live off the land type people. Concerned about their way of live and the health of the environment they clash in ways you would expect.

 

Qwill rents a house on the top of the Big Potato mountain that he quickly learns was the scene of a murder of the big developer and most important person of the area. While his usual flare Qwill learns all he can about the murder, the fact that an innocent man was railroaded into jail and all about the arts and culture of the two mountains.

 

I love the little bits about Ms Braun's stories. She weaves very believable characters and environments for her mysteries. With lots of little bits in the backgrounds that give the reader proof that even in light mysteries there is a lot of research going on.

 

The only thing that bothered me about this book was it was one of the rare books in this series with a bit of a cliff hanger.

The Earth Moved: On the Remarkable Achievements of Earthworms by Amy Stewart
The Earth Moved: On the Remarkable Achievements of Earthworms - Amy Stewart
bookshelves: autumn-2014, nonfiction, fraudio, gardening, published-2004, under-1000-ratings, environmental-issues, entomology, nature, sciences, darwinism-evolution
Recommended to ☯Bettie☯ by: Sylvester
Read from April 15 to November 02, 2014

 

Six hours.

Description: In The Earth Moved, Amy Stewart takes us on a journey through the underground world and introduces us to one of its most amazing denizens. The earthworm may be small, spineless, and blind, but its impact on the ecosystem is profound. It ploughs the soil, fights plant diseases, cleans up pollution, and turns ordinary dirt into fertile land. Who knew?

In her witty, offbeat style, Stewart shows that much depends on the actions of the lowly worm. Charles Darwin devoted his last years to the meticulous study of these creatures, praising their remarkable abilities. With the august scientist as her inspiration, Stewart investigates the worm's subterranean realm, talks to oligochaetologists—the unsung heroes of earthworm science—who have devoted their lives to unearthing the complex life beneath our feet, and observes the thousands of worms in her own garden. From the legendary giant Australian worm that stretches to ten feet in length to the modest nightcrawler that wormed its way into the heart of Darwin's last book to the energetic red wigglers in Stewart's compost bin, The Earth Moved gives worms their due and exposes their hidden and extraordinary universe. This book is for all of us who appreciate Mother Nature's creatures, no matter how humble.


Not this, no, Amy Stewart is the one with the REAL nightcrawlers. M used to have a worm farm on the island of the life before, maybe it is time he had one again. As we were listening through this, we found it very tempting to set one up.

oligochaetologists - who knew that!?

Who Moved My Choose?: An Amazing Way to Deal With Change by Deciding to Let Indecision Into Your Life
Who Moved My Choose?: An Amazing Way to Deal With Change by Deciding to Let Indecision Into Your Life - Jarod Kintz,Dora J. Arod I bought this book for its title, thinking it was a sattire to business self-help books. But it has nothing to do with it. And I'm not sure I am the person more adequate to rate this book.

There are jokes about penis, but I'm a woman.
There are puns, but as a non-native English speaker, I don't get half of them.
There are references to American culture, and I'm quite oblivious about what things like "Orafoura" mean.
There are "everyday jokes", but, as someone who doesn't share the same lifestyle, I also don't get them.

And a lot of thoughts about clones. Which I understood (Hallelluyah!), but i didn't figure what they were doing in the context of the book.

In resume, this is a collection of puns, anecdotes, or simply witty thoughts. And as any collection of jokes, there is always that "What the hell? I'm abandoning this book!" joke, immediately followed by another that is"LOL I HAVE to keep readig this." So I feel very ambivalent and wouldn't dare give it a bad rating because I know I don't have what it takes for it.

Who Moved My Cheese?: An Amazing Way to Deal with Change in Your Work and in Your Life
Who Moved My Cheese?: An Amazing Way to Deal with Change in Your Work and in Your Life - Spencer Johnson,Kenneth H. Blanchard The subtle, underlying message of this book is "Don't waste time fighting against bad changes: accept that bad stuff will happen to you for no good reason and just keep moving, like an animal." The animal analogy is a valid one: animals do not question or complain about changes that hurt them, they just try to survive. Any CEO would love a company full of mice--and this book is a great step along that road.

Furthermore, the book's core analogy makes the insulting assumption that employees shouldn't bother with reason or analysis: pure survival instinct is all the CEO wants to see. Real humans in a maze, confronted with vanishing or moving cheese, wouldn't just whine; they'd analyze their situation and find a creative solution, instead of just going back to foraging. Maybe the cheese-deposit mechanism is stuck; maybe the cheese is shifting in a pattern that can be understood; maybe there's a way out of the freakin' maze! "Just accept it and keep moving" is not only a simpleminded philosophy, it's often dead wrong.

Change is not always bad, but it should always be questioned, and opposed if it's harmful. Be a man, not a mouse.
