Read in December, 2008

I found this to be so leisurely -- pages-long descriptions of car trips through the countryside, detailed listings of the stuff in every room -- that I had to force myself to finish. But I'm giving it 3 stars because for God's sake, this woman is 88 YEARS OLD. I can barely find my car keys and she's still cranking out byzantine mystery plots.

Diane I agree--at her age I probable won't be able to follow her plots.

Lisa Word, my friend, that gives heart to all of us "getting older" (which is really all of us ha ha). Books are such a refuge, and hers in particular. Cheerio
