Biraz sevimsiz ve yazı stili en iyisi değil, ama ana karakterle biraz ortak olduğumu hissettim. İntihar ve yemek hakkında konuşun ... kitabımda her zaman ilginç!
Bu kitabı kesinlikle seviyorum!!!! Tekrar tekrar okuyabildiğim tek kitap.
Bir başka havalı Phoenix noir. Katil açılış cezası okuyucuyu derhal Şoförün şiddet dolu dünyasına atar. Sürücünün öyküsü, kara / suç romanlarının geleneklerini onurlandırırken geleneksel değildir. Önerilen.
"Pragmatik Programcı" nın yanında bu kitap koleksiyonumdaki en önemli kitaplardan biri. İlham almak istiyorsanız ve ciddi bir kişisel gelişim yolu görmeniz gerekiyorsa okuyun. Chad Fowler çivilenmiş.
Initially I had difficulty engaging in this, an epistolary novel that takes place in the years following WW II. I had difficulty giving it a context. It begins at a place that feels like the middle of things (as if I missed something), but then eventually gathers the far-flung bits of fabric that make up a life and the texture of many lives. The story is like a tapestry; it starts with a solitary bit of material and then stitches together a saga of interweaving lives on the Channel Island of Geurnsey that took place during the 2nd World War. I fell in love with the eccentric, rowdy, and often ribald cast of characters and my heart bled and broke more than a few times over the beautiful comedy that emerged from the tragedy of war. As I kept reading, the story strengthened and became deeper and thoroughly enfolded me in its tale of hope in a hopeless situation and endurance in an almost unendurable time of German occupation and starvation. This is a story of courage and love in a time of moral ambiguity and ruthlessness. These rural characters are unsung heroes. I feel like I met each and every one of them personally and that they touched me in all the vital places where love resides. Additionally, it is a history lesson of a place that time and distance will now not forget.
not the best but was def. cute. 3.5 stars
Lorrie Moore doesn't know if her fiction is more sad than funny or more funny than sad. Either way, it's great. This is her attempt at a longer work (she shines with short fiction), and in many ways has a typical not-so-popular teenage girl protagonist...but the narrative is way more distinctive than, say, Curtis Sittenfeld's narrator in "Prep." Peppered seasonably with Canadian French phrases, wallowing in low moments (shoplifting, losing friends), and infused with a grown up woman's nostalgic remembrances, I think this book is more sad than funny. It's not as tight as Moore's short fiction, but it's a good read.
