Bu kitabın nedenini anlamadım. Kendini asla gerçekten birbirine bağlamadı.
Bu kitap ya 1 yıldız ya da 5 alır - yine de arkadaşlarımla. Ben 5 taraftayım. Rahatsız edici derecede parlak. En sevdiğim romanlardan biri, ama kesinlikle yürekli değil. Güzel.
siouxsie's always been one of my idols, like many other girls of the black-hair dyeing persuasion, and the banshees were always one of my absolute favorites. this book is full of drama, arrogance and shit-talking as well as music, love, friendships, clashing personalities, and it made me laugh a lot. perfect.
This book is a really quick read. While it's not as good as his other works, it is still a pretty good book.
In this enchanting tale about the magic of reading and the wonder of romantic awakening, two hapless city boys are exiled to a remote mountain village during China's infamous Cultural Revolution. There they meet the daughter of the local tailor and discover a hidden stash of Western classics in Chinese translation. As they flirt with the seamstress and secretly devour these banned works, they find transsit from their grim surroundings to worlds they never imagined. (from the book, but this is exactly how I've been describing it) This is one of the most romantic stories I've read in a very long time. Rendered in a touching and evocative way, the author sends the senses spinning with images of beauty, and sights and sounds you might never know in this life. It also gives a great view into a time in China's history that we generally know so little about. Fascinating.
This is one of the few times when the movie based on the book is better than the book. Usually it's the other way around. The book was good, but the movie stirrs more emotion in me. It's one of those movies I can watch over and over again But wait, this is supposed to be about books......
Picked it up two or so years ago after my brother finished reading it. Was relatively captivated; however, the novel is mostly historical fiction fluff. Not much substance, but an entertaining read for a samurai buff, and of course it required about a third or fourth grade reading comprehension level to understand.
