İyi, eğlenceli bir okuma. Çocukların neden akın ettiğini görebiliyorum. Eğer bir genç olsaydım, kaçınılmaz film uyarlamasını görmek için ölürdüm, ama çocuklu bir yetişkin olarak çok fazla değil.
Bunu neredeyse okumadım. Son zamanlarda kadın kulüpleri hakkında toomany kitaplar okuyorum ... kadınlar kaçınılmaz olarak aynı trit rollerine düşüyorlar ve onları zar zor anlatabiliyorum. Bu iyiydi, kadınlar (ve bir erkek üye) iyi yazılmıştı. Austen'le olan uğraşları takdir edildi, bana diğer insanların da yazılı kelimeye takıntılı olmaları konusunda umut veriyor. Ayrıca, hikaye kıvrılıyor ... bolca flashback ve birkaç flash-side. Arka plandan hoşlanıyorum, genellikle ana olaydan daha ilginç!
Harika okuma, aşırı cinsiyetçilik
Excellent New York story, though the main character's self-obsessed, detailed melancholy can bog things down here and there.
This book really got the wheels turning in my head. It pops the bubble around some of the successful people that I've always idolized because of their shear talent. Well it appears that it's not just talent. It's a combination of circumstance and opportunity as well as culture. Talent and drive is still a factor but having the opportunities is at least half of success. As a big soccer and hockey fan I found chapter 1 and the discussion of Canadian hockey players very interesting. How many other systems are there that have a built in bias where birthdate determines your level of success? I found the chapter about the airline pilots very interesting although a little disturbing that plans crash because of the cultural attitudes towards authority. As a first time reader of Malcolm Gladwell I am excited to try reading some of his other books.
I thought this book was very well written. I liked the fact that it went into so much detail that it made you feel as if you were Elie Wiesel. This book definately met my expectations of a well written biograpy. I thought it was very sad that Elie and his father were split up from his mother and three sisters, but I liked how he and his father stuck together and fought their way through the concentration camps. I read this book as one of the required summer reading books and I would recommend it to mature 8th grade students, highschoolers, and anyone above those ages.
