Sevdim - İncil zamanların güzel kurgusal hesabı.

Beklentilerimin aksine, okuyucunun Taş Devrine geri dönmeye ikna etmek istediği tipik bir keçi yünü çorap kitabı değildi. Daha ziyade sadece herkes için mevcut olanı (eşit olarak bölünmüş) yaşamak için deneyi yapan birinin okunabilir bir açıklamasıydı. Yavaş yavaş yazar tüm gerçekleri açıkça listeler. Devam etmeden. Ve bu bana 'mesajın' yavaşça akmasına izin vermek için en iyi yaklaşım gibi görünüyor. Şiddetle tavsiye edilir, ayrıca gri çorapları olmayan insanlar için :-)

I dislike reading about what happened to people in Maoist China. It's all bad and wasteful and painful. Very occasionally I pick up another one and try to overcome my anger over the losses sustained there. This book does not do that. The translation seems spotty as well. I find the author's story more interesting than the subjects of his book. I found 2 of the interviewees engrossing and I will continue to read the book, but I have to stop and read something that is more "fun" first. 4/21 OKAY. This is starting to grow on me. Read in tandem with Peter Hessler's Oracle Bones, the starker accounts in the Corpse Walker really start to shine.

Probably my favorite Robbins book so far.

Not bad, but a bit of a fan wank!

It’s hard to say much about a collection such as this, when each fable can range from three sentences to no more than a page. It’s not written with character development in mind, or wordplay, or plot, or what-have-you. These compact little vignettes from Aesop are read for their pearls of wisdom, and in that, they succeed splendidly. Their straightforwardness is key to their success: There’s a problem posed, a response to it, and the consequences. The lessons imparted have a way of embedding into your mind, thanks to that selfsame simplicity. Ashliman’s translation is clear and concise, while the illustrations by Arthur Rackham add a Grimm-esque touch to the book. There are nearly three hundred fables included so, although they are short and sweet, there are a few redundancies. Still, for wisdom that has withstood the test of time and predates just about any philosopher you can name, you’d be hard-pressed to do better than Aesop. Grade: B+
