By Singing Light

Pretty much everything here originally appeared at my actual blog: By Singing Light. I particularly focus on upper middle-grade and young adult books. I also enjoy adult genre books, especially speculative fiction.

4:50 from Paddington - Agatha Christie I know I've read this one in the past, but I didn't remember it at all, and I loved it! My problem with Christie in general is that her characters are flat. Here we had not only Inspector Craddock, surely the most human of her policemen, but Lucy Eyelesbarrow, a lovely and able assistant to Miss Marple. Personally, I want Lucy and the Inspector to get married, because they're clearly the nicest and most intelligent of the lot. In fact, I'm on the verge of writing crazy fanfic in which they do get married and go around detecting things together. It would be awesome, except for the fact that I can't write mysteries.
