(Burada bulamıyorum) farklı bir sürüm okudum, ama gerçekten bu bir zevk!
Beklediğimden pek emin değilim, ama bu kitap bir tür trafik kazası gibiydi .. İstediğim halde uzağa bakamadım. Yapışık ikizlerin Chang ve Eng Bunker'in kurgusal bir otobiyografisi. Ülkeyi çeşitli taraf gösterileriyle gezdikten sonra güney ABD'ye yerleştiler ve kız kardeşlerle evlendiler. Kitap kronolojik olarak çok fazla zıplıyor. İlginçti, ama kesinlikle tekrar okuyamadım ...
kısa kolay kitap okumak için. Eğlendim
Güzel Kemikler çok ilginçti, çünkü anlatıcı kitaptaki ölü kızdı. Uzun zaman önce okudum, bu yüzden detayları hatırlayamıyorum. Okunması gereken çok zor sahneler var. Bence okuyucu katilin kimin erken olduğunu biliyor, ama gerginlik aileyi izliyor ve polis onu bulmaya çalışıyor. Ölü anlatıcı her şeyi izliyor ve yardım etmeye çalışıyor, ama yardım edemiyor.
Çok tatlı ve bazen komik bir kitap. Okuduğuma sevindim ve tekrar okurdum, ama özel ihtiyaçları olan bir çocukla yaşamak, eğlence faktörünü kitaptan biraz dışarı çıkardı sanırım. Yaklaşık bir aylığına yere koydum sonra tekrar gittim. Başkalarının gerçekten nerede hissettiklerini görebiliyorum, bu harika bir kitap ve çoğu için öyle. İyi işleyen otistik çocukların zihinlerinin işe yaradığı göründüğü gibi, şaşırtıcı-sonsuz-gevşek-linnked-fikirleri türünde iyi yazılmış.
A 19th-century soap opera, in the best sense. A young man is coming home from college, with a pal, to visit his father in the hinterlands. The red-vs-blue divide of 1850s Russia sets up the first conflicts, and then a series of interconnections among the men and several women in their lives animates the story. Turgenev weaves his tale across the generations, the genders, and the classes, yet keeps it all admirably brief. He is a tremendous writer with a light touch, and was greatly admired by the now-more-famous Russian authors. Not the least of this book's charms is that you can read a Russian novel in only 203 pages or so, depending on which edition you have. One last note -- one edition has an intro by Isaiah Berlin; if at all possible, get that one, for Berlin's great insights into a period and a society in which he specialized.
I read both Lucky and The Lovely Bones and enjoyed them both, so I was looking forward to reading Alice Sebold's next novel, The Almost Moon. While it's not as bad as people are saying on here (discomfort about descriptions of genitalia should not affect one's opinion on the books, guys, because as far as those go, Sebold's descriptions were not that bad), it did not have the emotional connection for the reader and the ending was very unsatisfying. The premise of the book was excellent. People treat mental illness like it's some hush-hush thing, and the way we're supposed to care for our aging parents is a touchy subject. And no one likes to admit it, but caring for someone elderly and caring for someone with a mental illness is emotionally and physically taxing. Thus, I felt some of the sections were touching--the fact that the main character wanted to clean up her mother because she would have liked to be that way when she died or when Helen describes how her mother tentatively stepped into the outside world to help her daughter buy pads at her menarche, versus all the times Clair would leave the lights on or accuse the neighbors of theft. As far as the rest of the story goes, it has too many characters that I couldn't get into enough to remember their names: Natalie, Hamish/Hamish Jr., Leo, Janine, Emily, Sarah, Jake, the neighbors, etc. I hate to compare it to The Lovely Bones, but there, Sebold limited the sheer volume of characters so we could better follow the story and get a better sense of the supporting cast. I couldn't remember that Emily and Sarah were Helen's children and not grandchildren, etc. And I'm going to compare the two novels again: The Lovely Bones had one of the most beautiful, haunting, and memorable last lines ever. The ending here sucked, as if Sebold had run out of steam right at the end of that chapter. Overall, not the worst book in the world, but one I'm glad I didn't purchase.
Woman at Point Zero takes place in Egypt at the time of Egypt's third president. The author, Nawal El Saadawi goes to a prison to interviews a prisoner. Her name is firdaus. She tells Nawal about her story and all that she knows. As a child, Firdaus witnesses and experience many things like death,rape and violence. She faces alot of opression and sexism. Many men use her and abuse her to gain power and control. This book is about a woman's journey in finding who she really is and to find a way to gain power over men. I think this book is okay. It deals with alot of hard stuff like sexism,poverty,choices, and many more. Although i cannot really connect to this book, I felt sympathy for Firdaus and made me look the world in a whole new perspective!
