I found this quote on a website offering to make your child love math: “Sadly, long before the age of seven, many children have “switched off” to math.” The quote made me laugh and wonder just exactly when it is that our young children get “switched on” to math.
The book feels a bit gloomy, which is not unusual for P.D. James. It reads in one go though. Having read it in translation many years ago, I re-read it in English last year, recognising the half-forgotten plot as I proceeded and feeling again that strong, stubborn and not at all feminine Cordelia would haunt me for days afterwards. I’m not sure I want to re-read the book again, but I might some day. This chaacter is drawn a little too thoroughly, too deeply for an investigator in a detective novel, but that’s exactly why this book stands out. It leaves a mixed aftertaste: not altogether pleasant and not exactly bad. Those who like นักสืบ stories with a little gloom and doom thrown around will love it.
Add to that a granny who likes to pack a gun and more car trouble than any girl should ever face and you have the making for Evanovich’s hit novel series. How well it translates to movie audiences will be in large part due to Heigl.
Control yourself. Even if you are angry, you should keep yourself from lashing out at the caller. As said, this will just encourage them to keep calling. Don’t make the caller feel as if you are affected by what he or she is doing.
It’s up to Cordelia to run the main investigation in this book. But the author’s other favourite character, Superintendent Adam Dalgliesh, appears in it too. He’s often mentioned throughout the book – it so happens that poor Bernie was his huge fan, despite having been fired from the police by the perfectionist Superintendent. And at the end of the story Cordelia gets to actually meet him face to face…
Dr. Bell at the age of 16 entered Edinburgh University and graduated before he was twenty-one. Two years later he became a house surgeon in the Royal infirmary, and at twenty-six he was lecturing in the extra-mural medical school. He married at the age of twenty-eight. It was a happy but short-lived marriage. His wife died private detective nine years later. He lived to his end a widower. Dr Bell was reserved and hated spotlight.
NICK, VICTORIA AND ABBY: Nick tells Victoria that their father is ready to settle. Victoria wants Beauty of Nature instead of the 1.5 billion dollars. Is this woman for real? Nick agrees which is even more laughable. Abby wants her cash to start her own television network (this kid thinks she’s Oprah) but Victoria explains that she can be a silent partner in Beauty of Nature just like her aunt Tracy is at Jabot. She tells Abby, she and Nick will always support her dreams and she can get the money from BON right away. Victoria sounds like Vic Jr. right now and Abby better learn quick, nobody wants to see her naked. Sigh. As you may have guessed, Abby caves and agrees to the deal.
