"Alacakaranlık" kötü bir vuruş okuyor gibi hissettim dışında tek kurtadam vardı. Yazar, inançsızlığımı askıya alma konusunda Stephenie Myers'ın kitaplarında olduğu kadar etkili bir iş yapmadı. Evet, vampirlerin olmadığını biliyorum, ama tüm hikayeyi mümkün kıldığından emin oldu. "Titreme" okurken, "bu çok mantıksız" diye düşünmeye devam ettim. Muhtemelen dizideki bir sonrakini okuyacağım kadar eğlendim, ama bu kesinlikle akılsız okuma için bir kitap, başka bir şey değil.
Genç bir yetim çıraklığına hazır olacak mı, savaş okuluna gitme hayallerinin yerel efsanevi tarafından onu çırak olarak alan bir korucu tarafından tire olduğunu fark ediyor.
Şimdiye kadar okuduğum en iyi gizemli kitaplardan biri!
Two things can be said about Colin Singleton: he's got the IQ of a genius...and he consistently falls for girls named Katherine. 19, to be exact. Unfortunately, Katherine XIX has recently dumped him, throwing him into depression, and making him wonder why the Katherines consistently dump him. His best friend, Hassan, feels the need for the two to take a road trip. Through a series of events, the two end up in Gutshot, Tennessee, working on a project for a factory owner. Colin's obsession with connections and relationships lead him to compose a theory: the Theorem of Underlying Katherine Predictability. With the help of a new friend, he begins to realize that relationships tend to be very predictable...
I actually first saw this book on an episode of my favorite television series “Reading Rainbow” and I really enjoyed this book! “Animal Café” is a children’s book by John Stadler and it is about a cat and dog duo named Casey and Sedgewick who privately own an Animal café without the knowledge of their human owner, Maxwell. “Animal Café” is a clearly wonderful tale that children will love over and over again! John Stadler has certainly done an awesome job at creating a world where animals go do their mysterious businesses during the night beyond the human eye. What I really loved about this book was that it plays on the classic animals doing secret and awesome things behind the humans’ backs scenario and it was so interesting seeing the kinds of crazy activities that all the animals do in Animal Café, including doing song numbers and making unusual dishes. One of the most interesting characters in this book was a grouchy pig named Cutlet who basically ate everything in his path and it was so hilarious seeing him so bloated up after he ate all the food at the café. I also loved the idea about a café being made for animals to enjoy conversing with other animals and man were the results hilarious and creative! John Stadler’s illustrations are somewhat simplistic yet extremely hilarious, especially of the images of the different kinds of animals that showed up at the café including an elephant who was a professor of a college, upper class alligators and birds and a retired colonel kangaroo. I also loved the illustrations of Casey and Sedgewick themselves as they are dressed up as waiters and I really loved Casey the cat’s green outfits for his show stopping sequence and Sedgewick’s blue vest which makes him look distinguished. John Stadler’s illustrations of all the animals doing human activities which include dancing and conversing with each other were extremely creative and enjoyable to look at. Overall, “Animal Café” is a brilliantly clever and creative book about what secret activites animals do at night that children will definitely get in to. I would recommend this book to children ages four and up since there is nothing inappropriate in this book.
Weird... I still don't quite understand it.
Who after reading this book who could ever hear the name Ignatius and not chuckle to themselves. The picture of very large Igantius in his hunting cap selling, or should I say eating hotdogs, is forever in my mind everytime I hear or look at this book. Absolutly one of my top 10 favorite books.
Very rarely do we see a book come along with a unique plot. And to see the plot dealt with so well, on such a down-to-earth level, well, I should just say that I really enjoyed reading the book. People who are looking for sci-fi will probably be dissappointed. The book is not primarily about the time-traveling. It is much more about how the time-travelling made the protagonist into the man he is, and how it shaped his life and the lives of those who loved him. And for the reader this is what makes it so good. It asks that you put yourself in situations that we never even thought of- true paradigm-shifts- and for me, that was the best aspect of reading this book. All the characters in the book are very normal, average people, with normal, average problems- except one problem that is not-so-normal. And because the characters are so normal, it really allows you to connect with this idea of how your life would be changed by this particular quirk- all the good and bad.
