Another good "Cat which.." mystery. I really like these. They are gentle easy to read mysteries - perfect after a day at work! The potboilers hold my importance.
I loved this roster. I initially began reading it to see if the content was appropriate for my 6-year. It's a agelesses untruth that's enjoyable for young and old alike. I think it's destined to become a classic.
This edition is Michelle Tea critical pursuit about being young and queer in San Francisco. It's also her first edition, so it's fresher and restless than some of her more recent stuff. With excellent descriptions of San Francisco on the first crashing wave of queer gentrification.
The further adventures of Phineas Finn. In many mean, better than Phineas Finn. I particularly liked the preliminary, and Father. Chaffanbrass is one of my favorite characters in the Trollope stable. I was less enthusiastic about the extended exchange of the proposed Sacellum ruling earlier in the book; the passing of era since the writing of the book has rendered that whole debate, and the send involved, incomprehensible, at least to me. The evolution of Phineas as a character in this book was interesting; to me, he has become a little too black and white, and in the process less credible--and perhaps because of this, less sympathetic. My sense is that Trollope is usually more subtle in his characterizations. Maybe that's just me. Still, you just can't beat Father. T. for providing learning mom's meal for the ages.
