THE RIGHT SIDE: Audio

From P. R. Trust, an Amazon reviewer, on Saturday:

5.0 out of 5 stars – Not just a mystery or war story.
I bought the audio version of this and thoroughly enjoyed listening to it.

This woman created by Spencer Quinn is so likable, so “right” that I wanted her alive. She’s as heroic as Atticus Finch. I do hope Quinn will write some more of her story.

At first I was afraid of this book: not wanting any more wounding war stories in my head. This is not a guts and glory story. It’s the story of one human being muddling through life in a most honorable way.

    Love this review of the audio version!

    A beautiful morning here in this neck of the woods!

    Create a good day!

    Good morning Wose and everyone. Great review! If the polls are still open HOH votes for HOH. (Darah Thea, Lucy Lou, Tinker Belle, DDD and mom). Luna, thanks for the vote 🤗. Fun game. Tough and the little grey cells have to align just right.
    Have as good a Monday as possible.

    You guys were having fun last night!

    I would suggest that the other word for “excessive” would be “superfluous.”

    Good morning all.

    I like the review. I, too, was hesitant to read the book because of the subject of PTSD. Now I look forward to another book in this series!

    Bathtub!

    Dawson, great answer. Rio was right about your imput being an advantage.

    Sorry I missed the puzzle game last night; we had dinner guests so I was unable to participate. I did check the blog around the time that deadly was up, and Rose beat me to the punch with lethal. That’s about all I would have been able to contribute if I had a chance.

    On a different but equally important subject — The Tutor. I only have the paperback version but it does have a photo on back of OFA, so that is provided below. Also, this was a very important book for OFA for a number of reasons. First of all, it is probably the most Sherlockian of any of his books; indeed, the protagonist (a young girl) fashions herself as a Sherlock protege and certain aspects of the plot play homage to Sherlock as well. In addition, I believe it was this book that ultimately resulted in OFA deciding to write the Echo Falls series, which really started his career in an entirely new direction. Lastly, this is I believe the first book in which a member of the nation within played a major role, and although he did not fare too well in the book, one may extrapolate that set the stage for the creation of Chet.

    Lastly, on another entirely different subject, while college basketball is not all that popular a subject here, is anyone following Sister Jean and the Loyola of Chicago basketball team’s survival to make it into the Final Four. A pretty terrific story. Also, what about University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC) being the first 16th seed ever to beat a number one seed (Virginia) in the tournament, made even more special by the team’s nickname — the Retrievers. Teddy was very pleased about that.

    B: Superfluous…You nailed it!

    Teddy: I knew you Wouldn’t Let Us Down!

    Wose: Yes! 86 Posts Yesterday thanks to Rio’s Game.
    (BTW, Pal. Sorry about that Broken Door. sniff)

    Teddy’s Paw, we haven’t been watching the basketball playoffs, but love when underdogs do well. As shown by our love of the Houston Astros! What an exciting year we had last season. Hoping for a repeat, but that is very hard for a team to do. So many of our young players were playing last year for minimal league pay but they certainly proved themselves. Hopefully, management can keep the core team. I know they gave Altuve a BIG raise!
    Rio, I think that kid did serious damage, not just to the door but the frame as well. WTH??
    Also, I would have loved to play the game but could not think of a single answer until someone else posted it. Then I would think “Of Course!”

  11. BooBear
    4:49 pm on March 26th, 2018

    That probable should have been “what an exciting season we had last year!”

  12. Riõ - The Evil Pug
    5:40 pm on March 26th, 2018

    Game!…The voting is still open for the clue “Excessive”…snort!…As of now we have “Poop” – in the lead with 14, Extreme – 1 vote and now “Superfluous” with 1 vote from Stover…wheeze!

    Answers!…I have not checked the answers and am pondering if I should post all the other clues which me and my friend answered earlier…snort!…This could be a double-check on our answers. But I will not do it unless you all want to participate in this activity….wheeze!

  13. BearSpiritDog
    5:46 pm on March 26th, 2018

    We Here are Voting for B’s Superfluous!

  14. BearSpiritDog
    5:52 pm on March 26th, 2018

    But…youse probably already knew that.

  15. Wookie's and Teddy's Paw
    5:54 pm on March 26th, 2018

    Rio — we are “in” for tonight.

    While it is a really close call between “poop” and “extreme”, Teddy and I are inclined to vote for extreme. Just saying . . .

  16. Thieves!
    6:05 pm on March 26th, 2018

    It looks like other candidates for excessive are getting traction. We have the outside sleepers on standby. They are waiting to cast their votes after a reminder from Luna the only one vote per team member with no extra votes for eyebrows or oversized ears.

    6:15 pm on March 26th, 2018

    Teddy: The game is heating up!

  18. B.Stover
    6:29 pm on March 26th, 2018

    I love the sound of “superfluous.” It is derived from two Latin words (“super” and “fluere”) meaning overflow. “Extreme” is from Latin (“extremus”) meaning outermost. “Excessive” is from Latin (“excedere”) meaning surpass.

  19. B.Stover
    6:33 pm on March 26th, 2018

    I think that “excessive” in English means something is not necessary. To me that is also what “superfluous” means.

  20. Wose-The Small and Meek
    6:36 pm on March 26th, 2018

    RIO! I love playing the “word” game!!! It will help me in my weekly Scrabble game with Grizz. Like Teddy and his Paw, I too say “extreme” for excessive.

  21. B.Stover
    6:42 pm on March 26th, 2018

    Rio: I’m not a big fan of math unless it involves counting Slim Jims, but I’m confident that if each of us at the kennel voted then we will sway the vote. So far, all vote with my Lady with the exception of Luna.

  81. Riõ - The Evil Pug
