Harika, muhteşem ve inanılmaz. DuMaurier, yıllarca yanında kalacak bir şaheser hazırladı.
Bu kitabı çok sevdim, şimdi birkaç yorumu okuduktan sonra, onları daha önce görmediğime sevindim. Görünüşe göre ya seveceksiniz ya da nefret edeceksiniz. Soğuk okumanın kitap olduğunu hissettim, tamamen bir film olarak hayal edebiliyorum. Bayan Ross'u sevdi, Jodie Foster gibi birinin onu bir film versiyonunda oynadığını görebiliyordu. Bir süredir okuduğum en iyi kitap.
Bu bir "macera / fantezi" hikayesi olduğu için normalde gördüğümden farklı. Harry Potter ve Yüzüklerin Efendisi arasındaki bir karışım olduğunu söyleyebilirim ve onu sevdim. Bir arkadaşım önerdi ve tereddüt etsem de okudum. Herkes için olduğundan emin değilim ve belki de ergenlere yöneliktir, ancak yine de ilginçtir.
My favorite book of all time. Wrote a whole record around it (Sutra's "Azul"). Met the author and was star-struck and actually asked for an autograph, on page 127, where my favorite passage is.
learned a LOT about Ebola
another dl recommendation. i don't want to flatter him by liking it. but so far it's pretty good and you know it's another nonfiction book i didn't finish
A beautiful short little novel by Pearl Buck. This is a great one to start with, and would be a fantastic book for young adults too. The themes of east vs. west are a little overt in this novel, but it is still so compellingly written, so much so that I read it in one sitting. I kept thinking that I would wish it to be longer, but when I got to the end, it felt like the perfect length. Unlike her other novels, this one deals with just a small part of one family's life, instead of generations and their stories. This allows Buck to really delve into the depths of one particular issue -- intercultural marriage (between the narrator's Chinese brother and an American woman) and their ensuing pregnancy. The family dynamics are portrayed in a non-cliche manner, and I found myself feeling for each character, despite their differing (and, at times, hurtful) opinions. No villains here -- just human beings struggling with heavy human questions. Oh, and this is an epistolary novel. I'm not sure Buck succeeded in the form (this would be one of my reasons for the 4 vs. 5 stars) -- I couldn't get a firm hold on whom the recipient of the letters was supposed to be. It sounded, interestingly, like Buck herself could have been the recipient (as there were hints that the recipient lived in China her whole life but was not Chinese). But this constant questioning on my part hindered my ability to fully lose myself in the story. But, then again, it's Pearl Buck, and she always manages to suck me in anyway with her beautiful prose, complex characters, and difficult issues of family/culture/identity.
