Bu ürpertici, ama aynı zamanda çok okunabilir. Ben yolun sadece% 25'ine sahibim ama son zamanlarda aldığım en ilgi çekici kitaplardan biri.
Fallen'i nefret ettiğim kadar, bu kapak muhteşem. Demek istediğim, MUHTEŞEM, muhteşem.
An excellent book about a young disobediant boy, who is sent to bed without his supper as punishment. He escapes his sadness by creating a dream world of all things wild like him who crown them as their king, only to return to the warmth of his own reality where he knows he is loved. Wonderfully depicted, and a great read for any child, full of meaning and lesson. No matter how many times a child would wish to escape, a part of him/her would still want to return to the safety and warmth of a place called home. No matter how much anyone would want to run away reality catches up with you and all for the best, with something beautiful, even if is the promise of a hot supper, in store for you... :D
This 500 paged book drove me crazy for awhile. This book may be too much for me, but it did not. I LOVE THIS BOOK. For 500 pages entertain me more than its comments. You must read this book. It is classic. It is enjoyable. It is fabulous. It is ..... You name it.
funniest books i have read so far, and i'm not really a pirate afficianado.
I enjoyed this book. It's set in an upperclass apartment block in Paris and follows 2 of its residents; the concierge who is brighter than she lets on and a 12 year old girl who is disenchanted with the world she's been born into. At its heart this is a book about fate, appearances and perceptions. Do we have to stay in the pigeon hole we've been born into? Can we change our destiny? How will others respond to us if we do? What risks? One of the things I loved about this book is the 2 main characters are not broght together until quite late in the book. You get to know each of them for who they are before they are allowed the same discovery. This novel is masterfully written and the prose are honestly wonderful with a lot of terrific enlightening snippets. If I have one problem with the book it's that I rarely felt compelled to go back to it after putting it aside. But I suppose that is the price you pay for eschewing an action packed, plot driven thriller in favour of a beautifully written character study.
Life IS Ridiculous One woman’s observations about the things that the rest of have probably noticed as well. By Lesa Colleran March 7, 2007 Where real life meets with the silly, amusing observations about the random things most of us take for granted or quietly grumble about under our collective breaths; these are the things that Valerie Fausone notices AND writes about. It all begins innocently enough; advising the reader to “Just Be Cool”. Solid enough advice, but she makes it look so easy! Step by step she draws you into what ultimately becomes a true “laugh out loud” (alternatively known as don’t read this book while drinking a beverage) collection of tales. As a somewhat regular woman who enjoys reading, I first viewed it as “just another book” that was “probably” worth reading. I hereby declare my mistake with humility as this is without a doubt the funniest book I have read since the last publishing by anything “Erma Bombeck” or “Dave Barry”. I am humbled by the unique humor and satire that can really not be compared to any other author on the planet, perhaps in the galaxy. My favorite excerpt from the book is this one: “Kids cannot be convinced that strawberry syrup is not a fruit and are able to make a pretty good argument that a Snickers bar works as a breakfast choice on account of the peanuts. If there are no candy bars available, possible suggestions will be Cookie Donut cereal, or beef jerky with grape Jello on the side. This makes perfect sense in the mind of a small growing person. Attempts to guide them in the direction of granola will fail. Kids have their own idea about what is good. When they finally get to college, they’ll drink beer for breakfast, so why get bent out of shape over their food choices now?” I spend most of my time laughing, but underneath the laughter was something deeper; the feeling that I wasn’t alone in all of this muck. It gave me fodder to launch at all the ridiculous but sometimes irritating or painful things in my life. That’s a wonderful thing to get from simply reading a book, at least I think so. But it’s not all about kids, parenting or things that appeal to me. I honestly think that there is something in there for everyone. I don’t gush often and I most certainly will not enthusiastically advocate something if I don’t believe in it. I honestly believe that this book is one of the funniest things I have ever had the privilege of reading. In fact I think I will go read it again… Buy the book, laugh your collective butts off. You won’t be sorry you did and you don’t even have to thank me for pointing it out to you.
