Bu dünyanın büyük şarapları hakkında büyük bir bilgi kaynağı - birçoğu hakkında duyduğum ve bazılarını hiç duymadım. CA şarap pazarındaki ve yurtdışındaki bazı önemli oyuncular için ilgi çekici karakter çizimleri ve önemli arka planla dolu. Bu kitapla ilgili en iyi şey, bilginin sindirilebilir parçalar halinde sunulmasıdır - şaraba süper olmayan ancak biraz daha fazla bilgi edinmek isteyenler için mükemmeldir. Talihsiz şey, vintage bilgi ve şarap satın alma tavsiyelerinin çoğunun zaten modası geçmiş olmasıdır.
Dürüstlük harika ve gerçekten komedi içine hassas nesir dokuma yetenekli - onun yazmayı seviyorum.
Gift for Eugene?
I read Sold in a matter of hours. It is a beautifully written book by a brave and important writer. Sold tells the story of a 13 year old Nepali girl who is sold into the often ignored, globally pervasive child trafficking industry. McCormick's heartwrenching book offers a necessary global perspective to a frequently underestimated and misunderstood audience--American teens and young adults--in beautifully written, age-appropriate language. Sold offers a realistic (meticulously researched) portrayal of an undeniably tragic and unacceptable global trend. The book is brave and important because while current American culture views teens and young adults as apathetic, ill-informed consumers lacking agency and motivation, McCormick dares to engage teens as a critically thinking, motivated audience. She provides an introduction to the importance of having a global perspective and, implicitly, the responsibility that comes with privilege. Sold is effective because of the emotional connection readers forge with Lakshmi (protagonist) and the small victories that occur, inspiring readers to action rather than suggesting insurmountable odds. This is a book parents should buy for, read with, and discuss with their kids.
Finally breadmaking makes sense. The photos are excellent for those of us who are visual learners. Thanks Brian for introducing me to the world of sourdough starts.
Educational and inspiring.
This book was very confusing to me at first,but as i got to the middle of it, it started making more sense and i understood why he had so many flashbacks.
Reader thoughts: This one might be my favorite Narnia book of all. Why? More Aslan. The scenes with him talking to Shasta or Aravis, and I can imagine that their reactions would be how I'd react to God talking with me. And I love long-lost family returning to save the kingdom. (This is what I write, after all.) It's a bit like a retelling of Joseph or Lion King, except Shasta had no idea who he was. Oh, and the horses ran the show. Some authors have talking/magical animal companions, but they never rise above just pets. Paolini's dragons in Eragon have some personality and are almost full characters, but Lewis's horses here and Timothy Zahn's Draycos are clearly their own people, with their own thoughts and motivations. There's one point where Shasta is swinging a sword, and I love that he doesn't immediately become an expert. The ending is well-planned. (view spoiler) Writer thoughts: One way Zahn brings Draycos to life is by having him learn to read (definitely a non-pet thing), and one way Lewis brings Bree and Hwin to life is by having them confess fears and pride (also definitely a non-pet thing). These authors know how to make their animals into real characters.
