Eğer tiyatroya ve Richard Burton'a gidiyorsanız ve 60'larda rol alan broadway'e bir göz atmak istiyorsanız bu kitap büyüleyici. Sanırım 60'dı, kitabı okuduğumdan beri biraz zaman geçti. Her neyse, Richard Burton'ın Elizabeth Taylor ile olan ilişkisi hakkında bir kepçe elde edersiniz, Hamlet hakkında bilgi sahibi olursunuz ve kitabı beğendiyseniz, Burton'ın DVD'de performansını şiddetle tavsiye ederim.
** spoiler alert ** This was a fun little read. To be honest, even though it's a short book it took me a while to get into it. Not sure why in retrospect, because I enjoyed it in the end. Also saw the new movie recently and was surprised at how closely the movie followed the plot of the book. (The movie was great, btw!!) I'm a big fan of the old "Casino Royale" movie, which I discovered only loosely follows the plot of the book... Anyway, in reading this book you discover how much of a misogynist James is. I suppose we all knew that in our hearts, but it's easy to romanticize the man... I probably wouldn't enjoy these books if I weren't into the movies and so therefore already invested in the character. They're so old-school and have all these antiquated notions of male-female relations. But then again, part of the fun of reading these is seeing stuff like that. Like when James goes on a vacation with his lady lover whom he's considering marrying, they stay in separate rooms?! Lol! :P
I love this book - the economic theory is debatable, but interesting.
The Liveship Traders trilogy was fantastic. The world that Robin Hobb created, with ships that are alive is really amazing.
