Kingdom of the Blind by Louise PennyUnfortunately I have finished. I tried to make it last as long as possible, reading it slowly, even though I wanted to rush to the end. Three Pines, such picturesque village, I would love to live there, if it was real of course. I mentioned that to someone and they said, Yes, but they have alot of murders for such a small town. True, I had to laugh, but it is the characters, the the people that live there, and the way they care for each other, even the demented poet Ruth.
Well, this time no murder in the village. Instead Gamache and Myrna, arrive separately, not knowing the other was coming, at a tumbled down farmhouse. They are tasked, along with another new arrival, with a very strange request. Despite their doubts, they are intrigued and accept. This brings them into a mystery over 160 years old and bearing a famous name. Also of course, are the remnants from the last novel, missing drugs and a suspended Gamache.
This may well be my favorite entry, so far in this series. Trademark humor, tenderness, and of course some great investigative ability is shown. Gamache and his complicated character is fully displayed. A few new characters too, and one that attaches to another, will be very surprising indeed. At books end, just when explanations are given, the cases wrapped up nicely or in some cases not, we are presented with a most unexpected zinger. Now I wonder just where the next book will take us. So I wait.

My goal here is to convince every single person reading this that ALL children should be returned to their parents or guardians for their education and upbringing. The political bands of the government school today amount to a straight jacket and any freedom loving person should feel impelled to figure out how to separate themselves from its clutches. The family is the primary system of any healthy community, city, state or nation. The more we separate families and legislate families the worse our nation will become. Even at church the government school dominates the calendar.
One of the most important skills in life is listening. Being a good listener means you can be better at anything else you do. You learn more by listening than by talking, by taking information in and learning what to do with it. The people without whom there would be no football club. Initially declined, success followed and he was invited to try out. A few inches too small, according to the Glaziers, as they were then known, who gave him a taste of that rejection that is familiar to so many in more contemporary times. The blow was dealt with the pen of George Irwin, the Palace manager and former goalkeeper himself.

Aunt Alexandra's son, Francis, and Scout do not get along. Francis taunts Scout and calls Atticus a "Nigger lover", so Scout punches him in the face. As punishment, Uncle Jack gives Scout a beat, but Francis does not get in trouble at all. How not? Uncle Jack put his hands on his hips and looked down at me. Uncle Jack sat down on the bed. His eyebrows came together, and he peered up at me from under them.
I have learned a lot about how I measure my own worth. And how my characters measure their worth. Sonya is a very intelligent, strong, and stubborn individual. The ballbreaker I wish to be. I always thought on this interview while creating Sonya. And not just in the physical sense.
