Meleklere takıntısı olan genç bir kız hakkında eşsiz bir kitap. Ancak, karanlık bir melek onu tekrar tekrar ziyaret ettiğinde ve okuldaki yeni kız meleklerden başka bir şey söylemediğinde, melek takıntılı geçmişi kısa süre sonra tekrar bir gerçek haline gelir. Kendisi hakkında, hayatının geri kalanını değiştirecek alışılmadık bir şey keşfeder.
Gladwell'in "Outliers" konusuna benzer, ancak farklı insanları ve yöntemleri kapsar. Yazarın başarılı insanlarla ilgili saatlerce süren kasıtlı çalışma saatleri olduğu iddiasını beğendim. Mantıklı.
This book was about three young african american women who were going through some problem's but managed to maintain themselves by having sex
Another solid contemporary book with a peculiar argument ... again Douglas Coupland gone to the dark side, sort of.
I did enjoy this. There was a lot of witty writing, beautifully descriptive, superb characterisation and of course the story of infidelity is as old as they come but as intriguing as if it were new. Having said all that, the characters, though brilliantly drawn and very true were, without fail, a bunch of horrors, which is probably why I loved it so much! Emma is a spoilt, selfish madame who cannot see the wood for the trees, the grass is always going to be greener for her, livng her life with her head in the clouds instead of just getting on with plain old boring life! Charles Bovary is as much an idiot as his wife, completely in love with a false image of her, going through his life blinkered but at least happy. The druggist Homais is a character and a half, the light relief in the book; doting husband and father, his remarks and arguments with the priest over religion were very funny - he's probably my favourite character. As for Leon and Rodolphe, the lovers, they are unscrupulous hypocrites, but done so well! I felt not a scrap of sympathy for Emma and only a tad for Charles. The ones I felt sorry for was Emma's father and the daughter Berthe. Oh such a tale of woe should surely, even in this day and age, hold a huge warning for infidels.....footballers and WAGs should perhaps be given this as a necessity and take good heed.....
