The Haircut Who Would Be King by Robert Trebor
rating: 5 of 5 stars
This was a fun and a very interesting satire. He combined what is happening in a humorous, fictional cloth. Very much like Mark Twain and Will Rogers
he spun a tale with humor and a great deal of wit but there was just a sharp enough edge so you know it was couched in the reality of our time.
Towards Zero by Agatha
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I can’t believe that I owned this book and I have never read it before. I loved it! It had me looping back
and forth between every character in the house. But I never guessed the killer. I think it was a fascinating study in psychology by the great Agatha Christie. The clues were there, the little slips but they seemed so normal that I did not pick them up.
Also I really enjoyed the two romances in the book that were not central to murder, I was happy that Mary had some romance, finally.
Also the man at the beginning of the book who you can’t really figure out what his part
in it is till it is revealed. I think he is my favorite character for many reasons that I can’t reveal or it will give it away. But I really, really like him.
Also I find it interesting that Agatha Christie’s view on suicide
that she had in The Harley Quin’s short story “The Man From The Sea,” is repeated here. And it really touched me both times, quite beautiful.
