Bu kitap çok sabunlu ama çok eğlenceli! Harika bir plaj okudum ve pazarlıkta 19. yüzyıl Avustralya tarihini biraz öğrendim.
I thought this was going to be a fun read of interesting historical facts. It wasn't. It read like a typical dry history book. I couldn't finish it.
I wanted to read Howard's End after reading Zadie Smith's On Beauty, but couldn't find it, so settled for something else. A lot of problematic stuff in here, but still an amazing read, particularly for looking at relationships between people and the subtle machinations of power.
Todd Burpo is the narrator of this story about his son, Colton, who suffered a life-threatening illness when he was three-years-old. Many months later, Colton began revealing insights about what he experienced while his body was on the operating table, but he was spending time in Heaven with Jesus, God, and a great-grandfather he never met. Todd details the emotions that he and his wife experienced as they struggled through Colton's dire illness, and then later as Colton's story began to unfold. At times I laughed, other times I cried, many times I rejoiced. This book should be required reading for every Christian (and if we can get a few atheists to read it as well, that would be great). Please read this. You won't regret it.
Very entertaining. I've probably read more of the show than I've seen of it.
Since my birthday is the same as Abraham Lincoln's, I've always been in awe of him. This non-fiction book, written for elementary students, appealed to me and will to all Lincoln buffs. It not only shows significant photography of Lincoln's day and his life, but provides snapshots into his personality and strengths. This is a quick and interesting read.
I thought Prozac Nation was a good and worthwhile read. Wurtzel discusses the chaos that goes on in her head and how it plays out in her life. One of the book's biggest strengths is that it is well written. It flows very naturally and the language is really nice. Books that are well-written like this one have that quality where you are turning the pages engrossed and not exactly sure why, but your into the book so you don't stop to think about it, you just want to keep reading. For me, Prozac Nation had that quality. There were some really great insights throughout as well. For example, Wurtzel talks about her freshman year at Harvard and how she was a magnet for other people that were just as dysfunctional as she was. She observed how they were like a playground for each other's issues - their relationships were filled with unnecesary drama brought in by each of their own shit. She hit it head on. I had that thought several times throughout the book. I thought, "Wow. That's an excellent way to put that." She does a good job of describing how difficult life is for someone who is depressed. How, strangely, even the most commonplace activities become extremely challenging. This quality, and the persistent dysfunction in her relationships can get a bit annoying by the end of the book. For example, her mother has only one clearheaded interaction with Wurtzel throughout the whole book. Other than that your like, "O wait a second, I know exactly how her mom is going to react - overbearingly and crazily." It is predictable in that sense. I gave the book three stars because it was a good read, but it is a memoir about one person's experiences. It didn't push the bar higher or anything like that, but it wasn't a waste of time either.
I LOVED IT!! It was sort of typical to most thriller/horror/mystery books, but still exquisitely written and laid out.
