what I read and saw in May 2011

Books

15. Mortal Stakes, by Robert Parker (audiobook) – Third Spenser detective novel. Wittiest detective I know. 7/10

14. Please Look After Mom, by Kyung-Sook Shin [translated by Chi-Young Kim] (audiobook)

Movies

20. The Time Traveller’s Wife (DVD) – I enjoyed this love story. Also had enjoyed the book. 7/10

19. Get Low (DVD) – Robert Duvall, Bill Murray, Sissy Spacek star in this redemption tale about holding onto guilt and then letting it go. Low key. I really enjoyed it. 7/10

18. Gnomeo & Juliet – Animated garden gnomes and the music of Elton John, in the same movie. Don’t go breaking my heart! 6/10

17. Os Muppets Conquistam Nova Iorque [The Muppets Take Manhattan, dubbed into Portuguese] (DVD) – I love the muppets, but this was not their strongest outing. Still, the Portuguese was fun. 5/10
