Robert B. Parker's Lullaby was extremely satisfying. Ace Atkins has done a wonderful job of keeping Spenser, Hawk, Vinnie Morris, Susan and all of the RBP folks alive. I couldn't be more thankful for the witty dialog between Spenser and well, everyone, but especially Hawk. Dino and Stone used to be that way before Stuart Woods quit trying.
In this Spenser story, a fourteen year old girl from Southie, Mattie Sullivan, asks Spenser to take down the men she believes murdered her mother four years ago.
I loved Mattie and wonder if she'll be back around, and I hope so.
Thank you Mr. Atkins. And as always, thank you Mr. Parker.
What's Going On Here?
There are SO MANY wonderful book review blogs out there and I can't compete with them, that is for sure. So this is not a book review blog. This is just a way for me to organize what I have read so that I can be better at matching the right book to the right person. The blog title comes from the brilliant mind of the most talented woman who ever lived, Ms. Judy Garland. The full quote is, "Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of someone else." That is what I hope to do here and in ever aspect of my life.
