Bu denemeler katı bir şekilde "Kendim ve üst-orta sınıf benlik falan filamda olan şeyler hakkında makaleler yazıyorum" kategorisinde yer alıyor, ancak Rakoff'un öz-farkındalığı onu tamamen lezzetli hale getiriyor ve herhangi bir iddiayı yok ediyor. Bence Bu Amerikan Yaşamı yazarlarının ve ilklerinin en iyisi ... kesinlikle bence Vowell veya Sedaris'den daha iyi bir kelime ustası, her ne kadar doğrusu hepsini sevsem de.
Bu, kütüphanedeki "beklet" listemde çok uzun süredir vardı. Arkadaşım aslında benim için satın aldı çünkü o benden duymaktan bıkmıştı .... haha. İyi, ama konusu nedeniyle rahatsız edici. Ana karakteri sonra ana olay oldu "yer" gibi, gibi değildi onun parçaları vardı. (Biraz havaalanına almak gibi, ama uçakta izin vermeyecek) Tavsiye ederim.
I'm not a huge fan of long books - the ADD in me makes me want to get to the action and get through it. In some ways this book dragged, there is only so much of England I can take and hanging out in an old musty library can only last for so long. But, the book definitely kept my interest and, for a long book, I flew through it. The book has been compared to Outlander (the pacing was such like Outlander, as well as the history) and even Twilight, due to the vampire/non-vampire romance. (I do think at one point she said that Matthew "sparkled" which made me giggle! Just like Edward! ;)) I think it's pretty good apart from those books, both of which I loved. My only problem is the fact that the book ended on a cliffhanger - I don't like feeling "obligated" to read the next book, even though I've been drawn in!
Reviewed by Shyanne for TeensReadToo.com This manga book is a good example of a novel's interpretation into the Japanese style of fiction. THE SERPENT AWAKES brings elements from a Faerie world and the dramas of the mortal world together. Tania is the only member of the Faerie realm who can travel between the two worlds. She was raised in the mortal world and did not know of Faerie's existence until her 16th birthday, when she found out that she was a long-lost princess of the Royal House of Faerie - and that she had sisters living in the Faerie world. I enjoyed reading this book because of the many elements that it involves. Tania must deal with the mortal world, from juggling her time and fitting her friends into her schedule, and in the Faerie world she must also juggle the many events that are happening. Tania must figure out her priorities and decide on who she will help first, with evil stirring in both worlds. Who will she pick: the mortals that she grew up with, or the world where she truly belongs, Faerie?
