Brought a suitcase full of second hand books back from the states, including most of the Recluse series. Unfortunately I couldn't find the 3rd book in the series (The Magic Engineer) and am waiting on reading any more until I find it.

Trying to read Lord Foul's Bane, but it's making me antsy about leprosy.

Me to my husband: "Dude...it could happen to anyone."

Him: "Aren't there bigger things to worry about?"

Me: "It would make your gazektanazoid fall off into your underwear bit by bit."

Him: "Good God, let's organize a telethon so medical science can cure this dread disease!"

Chill.  From the WHO:
 
"...Leprosy is one of the least infectious diseases, because:

Over 99% of the population has adequate natural immunity;
Over 85% of the clinical cases are non-infectious, and
An infectious case is rendered non-infectious within one week, most often after the very first dose of treatment."

Ye-es!
So we'll end this, ere the next one, with these 5 books.

Delores Garden-Smith
The Chessmen
9th in the Jack Haldean series


Kathy Lynn Emerson
Murder in the merchant's hall
2nd in the Mistress Jaffry series
Heroine: English
Place: England
Time: the past

I tried the 1st in the series, and while I found this one readable, I found that to be totally unreadable. Which is sometimes that way. What is unreadable becomes readable, and what is readable becomes unreadable.


Alexander Freed
1st novelist
Star Wars :
Battlefront :
Twilight Company


Philip Pullman
English
award winner
The Golden compass :
the graphic novel, v.1.
Stephanie Melcher, adapter
Anne Easton, translator

From the English to the French back to the English.

v.1. (September, 2015)
v.2. (September, 2016) The Subtle knife
v.3. (September, 2017) The Amber spyglass

And if you want to see it, rather than read it, v.1. The Golden Compass was made into a theatrical film in 2007. Though, one might be better off waiting for the BBC TV mini-series, which they are suppose to do sometime in the future.

Zach Dundas
The Great detective :
the amazing and immortal life of Sherlock Holmes
1 more non-fiction
With the 20 essential Sherlock Holmes stories (in order of original publication)

Next time: 6 of 1 or 6 Star Wars and/or graphic novels and 1 non-Star Wars and/or graphic novels

Unnatural Causes  by Patrica Cornwell the 8th book in her Kay Scarpetta series, it's okay so far but than i'm only on chapter 6. on good reads people complain that Kay doesn't show much emotion and i get that and i can see why people would complain about that. but in this one she shows a great deal of emotion so that's a nice change. cause they are right there aren't to many scenes where she does show much.  at least in the ones i've read other than fear and stuff like that when crap goes down.

ROOSEVELT AND THE HOLOCAUST: How FDR Saved the Jews and Brought Hope to a Nation by Robert Beir with Brian Josepher


This was a book whose subtitle totally belied its conclusions.  Its author, an eighty-six year old American Jew, was a noted Roosevelt scholar who was deeply disturbed by several recent works charging that FDR did little to nothing to save the millions of Jews who were perishing in Europe during and even before World War II.  He set out to investigate for himself, and found that the charges were largely true - Roosevelt had multiple opportunities to step in and either say or do something, to make some effort, to put his enormous popularity and political clout on the line, in order to slow down the march to the gas chambers - and he simply didn't.  His State Department stonewalled all attempts to let Jewish refugees into the country, he refused to bomb the railroads leading into Auschwitz or the crematoria where Jews were being incinerated by the thousands daily.  FDR took the attitude that the quickest way to end the Holocaust was to win the war, and in the end, Beir concludes that this approached worked.  Honestly, though, the narrative as he explains it simply doesn't bear out the two claims the book's subtitle makes.  FDR could have, at the very least, taken some symbolic stances in a public way.  An interesting read, but a very sad one at the same time.

It hurts. It hurts bad. For whoever wins--loses. Surprisingly, I found this more gut wrenching than the film.

If one has not had recent access to the internet, the next film in the Avengers series Avengers : Infinity War started shooting this month at Pinewood Studios in Atlanta (Georgia.) The 1st of what is expected to be 2 films. The 1st film to be out in 2018, and the 2nd film to be released in 2019. With everyone you expect. So far the only new actor to the film series is Peter Dinklage, who is rumored to play MODOK.

And a word for Tom Holland, who palys Spider-man. I am IMPRESSED by his accent he uses in the film. For if you hear his natural accent, as they say: "It's thick enough to cut with a knife." Which makes him incomprehensible for me at times.

It's all right for a book to be a time-waster, as long as it's not a waste of time, but the mixed bag of novels written by Cincinnati-born author Curtis Sittenfeld have been a bit of both of those down through the dozen years since she first hit the best seller lists with Prep, her much-decorated and oh-so-lit'ry tale of manners and mores at a New England preparatory school.

I've met Curtis Sittenfeld three times, drive by her childhood home pretty often as I head to town, and she's very nice, slightly shy, and gracious if approached, so I feel a bit guilty about the fact that what I have to say ahead is not all sunshine and bunny rabbits hopping in a dung-free meadow.

Aside from the fact that she has a name that sounds like a boy's, what do you need to know about this author and her heaving brain?

For starters she writes well. Very well. Unfortunately she also lags when it comes to being a storyteller, and all the best writers (Dickens, King, Ugluck of Clan Bear Fat) are storytellers first, writers second. Agreed? She also gets heavy-handed with her personal viewpoints, and sometime circa 2011 she seems to have made it her mission to drag her backward hometown kicking and screaming into the 1980s. In fact the epilogue of her latest novel misquotes Mark Twain, saying "When the world ends I want to be in Cincinnati, it always was twenty years behind the times." (Sorry, dear, his exact quote was ten years, not twenty. It's now the late Bush years in Cincinnati, not the Clintonian era.)

But her books.... Yes, her books.

So Prep, Sittenfeld's starting point, was a decent read, if not quite deserving in my view of the laurel wreaths universally heaped upon it by the literati, as it took us into the mind of a self-righteous prig of a Midwestern girl whose high marks in public school earn her entry into a prestigious East Coast prep school, where, ever the outsider, she skewers the ways of her moneyed peers, gets totally racist about an Asian roommate's nervous breakdown, discovers two unsuspected talents---one is haircutting the other is more PG-13---makes herself unliked by virtually everyone, and cock-teases some poor townie to the point I had to put the book down just to punctiliously face plant a time or two. (Really, girls, nail a townie when you're an undergrad, give yourself something to cringe about when you look back someday.) Prep was worth reading but not worth hanging on to: re-gift it for a friend's birthday, like I did.

2006's The Man of My Dreams, reads like a themed short story anthology, not a novel, as it squishes around time-jumping chapter by chapter in the mind and life of a self-doubting young woman from ages fourteen to about twenty-six, and tells how, apparent to everyone but her, she sees the world through a lens of other people's approval/disapproval, while she semi-openly seeks Mr. Right. Incidentally, the father in this book was probably Sittenfeld's best character ever, managing to be abhorrent in maybe five pages of his total presence. There's also a much better loss of virginity scene in TMOMD than we got in Prep, and now I think of it, does Sittenfeld put one of those into every book she publishes? Huh. May have to get back to you on that. And for a university-dwelling writer who stresses in each book that RACISM IS WRONG, Sittenfeld sure gets herself into some questionable depictions of minorities, non-heterosexuals, and the mentally-challenged. I can only imagine her therapy sessions.

Moving along, 2008's American Wife, a first-person story about the life of a US First Lady, clearly based on Laura Bush, is to date Sittenfeld's magnum opus, a fine hefty book that humanizes the Bush clan---reimagined as a Wisconsin political dynasty---as it collectively surrounds and yet fails to smother the bookish Alice Blackwell. (Barbara Bush's stand-in, a domineering granny known as Sergeant Major, is a gem!) American Wife is a book that rewards a reader for the time invested in it, though how relevant it stands to be as we leave the Bush years ever farther in our rear view mirrors I can't say. I did enjoy it, do own a copy, and have re-read it, so....yeah.

In 2013, Curtis Sittenfeld returned to the scene after a half decade spent teaching, and delivered up what is, sadly, her most off-putting, time-wasting, and unlikable novel, Sisterland, which lures a reader in with an interesting dust jacket description of a pair of psychic twins, one of whom predicts a massive earthquake that's due to level Saint Louis and much of the surrounding Midwest, yet is in reality an unpleasant 400-page tome about the bickering, detestable sisters, one fairly normal, the other a self-created freak in every sense of the word. I would seriously rather watch NASCAR than re-read this novel, and I'd rather get my nostrils waxed than watch NASCAR: that's how bad I thought Sisterland was. Sorry, Curtis.

Which brings us to the present, or at least to late 2016, with Eligible, which my husband called "Ellie-gible" every time he saw me reading it. Eligible is Miz Sittenfeld's take on Pride and Prejudice (ALL HAIL JANE!) set in 2013 Cincinnati. (Every few pages I'd merrily think, "I know where that is! I been there! Wow, Graeter's! Hey, Allie used to live near that corner!!!") Yes, through the first half of this book I was captivated, it could do no wrong, I loved it like I love cloudy days and back rubs, a cool drink of water in the summertime, or the death of my enemy. Yeah, I liked it a lot. But then, like some dirty trick (Oh, he's not quite dead, you say?) the tone of the book changed, and rarely have my feelings on a work of fiction altered so thoroughly, and from loving the novel I began to sneer at how badly ol' Curtis dropped the ball.

True few writers have Jane Austen's gift of wit but where Curtis Sittenfeld could have made an effort to have kept Eligible what it was supposed to be, a sort of satirical tribute to a great Regency novel, she seemed at some point mid-manuscript to become angry at her hometown, and took up an axe to grind, imposing almost punitively a lesson in latter-day political correctness that was as light-handed as an F-5 tornado, and far more loud. I completed Eligible with a good deal of effort and multitudinous heavy sighs, as all pretense to Sittenfeld basing it on P&P went sailing skyward, while her suddenly detestable characters plunged headfirst into a California "reality" dating show. (And did she seriously think anyone in 2016, even in Cincinnati, would be shocked by trans-gendered characters, inter-racial dating, hirsute feminism, or hate sex? Ya been away from home too long Curtis....)

Truly, I can't think of a novel that went from brilliant to bomb quite so fast or so hard, and in so doing broke my heart just a teeny bit, because for a minute I was truly loving that book!

So anyhow, if you've heard of Curtis Sittenfeld and ever feel like reading her works, tread lightly. She is a smart writer but she also represents a sort of vengeful one-woman post-post-(post-)feminist hit squad whose moralist viewpoints are about as subtly delivered as a sermon by Cotton Mather. (If she had a sermon it might be dubbed "Sinners In The Hands Of An Angry Mob." And it'd be about how she hates non-PC people.)

So, yeah, it's Sunday afternoon and I thought I'd take a few minutes to dissert on a hometown darling who sometimes makes me proud of her, and sometimes makes me glad she's moved away.

If you've read this far....thanks. Now get back to your life!
