Bu bir Bilim kurgu klasiği olarak kabul edilir ve belki de öyle ama endişelendiğim kadarıyla bu kadar nefret ettiğim o özgür aşk hippisi kadın düşmanı dolu bazı inek düz çocuğun ıslak rüyası. En sevdiğim bölüm, hemşire karakterinin sevgilinin o kadar güzel olduğu konusunda endişelenmesi, bazı ibnelerin ona gelip gelebileceğidir, ancak o zaman rahatlar çünkü Mars'ta insan teması olmadan yetiştirilmiş olsa bile içgüdüsel olarak algılayacağından emindir. yanılmışım, evet siktir git.
ilk başta girmek zor ve zaman zaman biraz kafa karıştırıcı, ama genel olarak muhteşem bir kitap
Tüm zamanların en sevdiğim kitaplarından biri. Bu kitabı sonsuza kadar önce, film çıkmadan çok önce okudum. Ancak bir geyşa ne olduğunu bilerek aldı ve onu koyamadım. İlk kişi hikayesi duygularla doluydu ve her sayfada güzel açıklamalar çok güçlü. Film versiyonu bu aşk hikayesi adaletini hiç yapmadı.
Reformasyon ve Henry VIII’nin kraliyet mahkemesinin dışından evlilik sıkıntıları hakkında bir roman okumak ne kadar canlandırıcı. Bayan Bennett, bu iyi araştırılmış romanda dönemin en önemli tarihi figürlerinden bazılarına hayat verdi. Bu hikayeyi okurken biraz araştırma yapmamdan ilham aldım. Kitapta anlatılan resimlerin resimlerini görmek zorunda kaldım. Bu resimlerin neden bu kadar çok soruya ilham vereceğini bir bakışta görmek kolaydır. Bayan Bennett'in bu gizemleri keşfi ihanet, güven, politika ve sevgi hikayesiyle sonuçlandı. Ana karakter olan Meg'in, kocasının kimliğinden bile emin olmadan, tarihin en çalkantılı dönemlerinden birinde sadakat ve güven meseleleriyle nasıl mücadele ettiğini okumaktan gerçekten keyif aldım.
According to his wife, Korean American Henry Park is “surreptitious, B+ student of life, illegal alien, emotional alien, Yellow peril: neo-American, stranger, follower, traitor, spy.” When his wife leaves him after the tragic death of their son, Henry is forced to reassess his life starting with who he is. For most of life, Henry accepted his role as an outsider. Perpetually observing others, Henry makes a wonderful spy. But even though he excels as a spy, he is an outsider even in the spy world. Where does someone that belongs to two worlds, find a true place of belonging; one that will last and ultimately provide self-fulfillment. In many ways, this book explores deep existential questions. Yet I’m not entirely sure it ever comes to any conclusions. Still, I enjoyed this book. Henry was not the easiest character to like, but his observations were incredibly interesting. In may ways, he seems to identify with other characters more than he identifies with any of his own emotions. At first I found this annoying, but then I realized that this was simply the way that he was raised. And I can imagine how difficult that might be to change later on in life. Yet Henry does feel. And I think that as the book progresses he does change although he doesn’t seem willing to acknowledge this. But in that way, the book ends on a promising note: that even the most estranged person can find a place of belonging. Ultimately, this book came at a really great time for me. I have been incredibly interested in identity issues since my sophomore year, and ultimately that is exactly what this book explores. Henry did not seem to adequately define himself early on in life. Yet through his relationships, we see that he is making choices that define him. I personally found his relationship with his wife, Lelia to be the most interesting. Perhaps, that is because Henry actually shows some of his vulnerability with Lelia. She brings out an intimate side him that was unexpected and refreshing. However, his relationship with his father, his spy mark John Kwang, and his spy mentor Jack all lead to the unraveling of his “true” identity. Henry is constantly conflicted between two different cultures as a Korean American and this effects him. This book also makes you wonder how much you can ever really know a person. People constantly change. This is both terrifying and refreshing. We are never complete, which can seem disheartening but I am choosing (at least today) to find this promising. The future can hold all sorts of different possibilities for grown and self-improvement. While I’m not entirely sure that this is the ultimate conclusion that Lee expected his readers to come to, I choose to read this novel as a promising look at a multiracial man who successfully managed to find a place for himself in American identity. I’m sure my Ethnic Studies teacher would enjoy hearing that. This is definitely an entertaining read that will keep you turning the pages to figure out how the story will end. I enjoyed Lee’s story and narrative style. I will probably be picking up some of his other work in the future. See more of my reviews at www.justicejennifer.com
I was supposed to read this book for one of my honors comm classes...i never finished but promised myself i'd return to it later. It's great. It's basically this researcher's autobiography as it relates to his work with chimpanzees. It is VERY interesting. It's a bit sciencey at a few points, but you don't have to be a science major or interested in the sciences to enjoy it. The best parts are his anecdotes about life working with and learning from chimps. A joy to read.
King's style often irks me. He skews overly-descriptive and gratuitously graphic. However, the man created The Shining, The Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile, Stand By Me (story: The Body), so I'll take it.
