Bu kitap öngörülemeyen ve güzel ve parlaktı ama ah, çok acı vericiydi. Çok gülünç derecede inanılmaz derecede ve güzel kalp kırıcı. Onu okudum. Muhteşemdi. Şimdiye kadar okuduğum hiçbir şeye benzemiyor. Daha önce hiç anlatılmamış bir hikaye, özellikle de bu şekilde değil. Jay Asher yetenekli ve bu kitabın bana verdiği acıya rağmen, yazdığı için ona minnettarım. Yazılması gerekiyordu. Bu neredeyse tam anlamıyla yazılmaya başlamıştı - ve daha iyi yapılamazdı.
Sad, sad. Cry, cry, but haha-wow sort of book.
This is a very honest, contemporary, and enlightening book. If you go into it with an open mind I think you will find the ideas presented to be very interesting and while I didn't agree with all of them, it did change my mind about a few things.
You know a book borderline sucks when the best short story was written by Cassandra Clare, plagiarizer extraordinaire (or so I've heard). Now, I'm not a CC-hater; in fact, I semi-enjoyed reading her Mortal Instruments trilogy (or, at the very least, the 1.5 books of it I've read) but only for the stunningly gorgeous Jace. Moving on though. I wanted to love this short story collection but I didn't. I couldn't. Most stories were subpar at best (with the exception of the above mentioned author, Libba Bray, and Garth Nix). Libba's story was fantastic in that it was about growing up and the Rocky Horror Picture Show-- unlike the other stories I'd read, Libba wasn't pressing her geekiness on me, it was more of an understated geeky story. And I liked that. On the other hand, Garth Nix's story was about a boy who didn't talk due to an accident early on in life but who was known as the Silent Knight (from what I remember) in his role-playing group. It was a cutesy little story that had adorable ending. Double thumbs up. And finally, Clare's story, I Never, brought Catherine Earnshaw, Heathcliff, and Mr. Kool-Aid into the modern day real world with an adorable little twist. Read it, seriously. There were two authors whose short stories I had most looked forward to but had let me down greatly: David Levithan and John Green. David Levithan's story was cutesy but lacked the depth I've come to associate with him, it felt forced and unnatural-- plus, I hated the main character. Whilst Levithan's story had been a letdown, I was most disappointed with John Green's piece as I've never read anything by him that I did not like. In my opinion, there was no plot or structure and the two female characters, Kayley and Lauren, were one dimensional. It left a bad taste in my mouth. I guess there really is a first time for everything. Clearly there were other stories but unfortunately they either a)weren't memorable enough for me to write about or b) I just didn't appreciate. Too bad, so sad. With Geektastic: Stories from the Nerd Herd, I felt kind of let down. Perhaps I had hyped it up too much in my head or maybe I'm just not geeky enough to appreciate it or maybe, just maybe, the stories borderline sucked.
awesome. excellent pictures and great historical account.
