Bu kitabı, Gramedia Sudirman programını, Yogyakarta'yı alın. Yeterince kötü değil ... Öğrenilen bir ders, kişi olmanın çok fazla olmaması gerektiğidir. Çünkü insan sahip olduğu şeyden asla tatmin olmaz.
Sanatçı Frida Kahlo'nun hayatının eğlenceli bir kurgusal hikayesi, kız kardeşi Cristina'nın bakış açısıyla anlattı. Cristina, kız kardeşinin aldığı ilgi ve şöhreti çok kıskanıyor. Bu bakış açısı Frida'nın okuyucu tarafından algılanma şeklini etkiler.
Bu 7 Alışkanlık bir çocuk versiyonu. Çok hoşuma gitti. Her bölüm / öyküden sonra tartışma sorularını beğendim. Resimleri çok beğenmedim ve karakterlerin bazı tutumları o kadar da büyük değildi (dillerini birbirine yapıştırarak, vb.).
Maybe I'm just not a Toni Morrison fan. Even though I want to be. This is only the second book of hers I've read, the first being Song of Soloman in high school. I mean, no question, the lady can write. Certain passages are just beautifully rendered. A Mercy is told from several different points of view in pre-revolution colonial America. (It's the seventeenth century, and around Maryland, I think. Early enough that the Portuguese are still big shots in the area.) We begin with Jacob, a Dutch farmer. Also included are Florens, a slave that Jacob accepts as a trade from a Portuguese lord, Rebekka, a native American lady who's a servant in Jacob's home, and Sorrow, a shipwrecked teenager who's another servant in the household. Morrison does an excellent job of creating the world these characters live in-- it's at once wild, unspoiled and lovely, and also quite menacing and cold. I loved the feeling of that part of the country feeling new, because it feels so old to me. The Chesapeake Bay being slightly dangerous in its terrible beauty is a notion that is lost today, yet Morrison makes it plausible. The world of A Mercy reminded me of the world of The Crucible. Somewhat because of the atmosphere of fear among great natural beauty, but mostly because these are (for the most part) people living in a world that is completely new to them. In both settings, the characters are in awe of and at odds with the great possibility in the land around them. That said, I can't really abide by some of her character's voices-- Florens is somewhat unreadable, because her voice is dreamy and indistinct, it can be difficult to decipher what she's actually saying. I'm sure this is a draw for some readers, but for me it was merely frustrating and boring.
this is such a good humored read!
I adore this book. It's a unique story about carnivorous waterhorses - the fastest and strongest there are, until its November and once more they are salt-crazed. And, naturally, there's a talented guy, and an equally stubborn girl, both with something to lose. It's got this sense of accomplishment surrounding it: 'look at me!' It screams. 'I'm everything they wanted me to be (and more).' it's spun from love and delicious tales goods and the scents are so vivid that they seep into your brain. I think this is also partially because I saw Maggie's updates, her frustrations, and the amazing November Cake recipe. I could feel the fear, the uncertainty, the need to win. And when these characters changed, you felt that odd kind of pride like you almost owned them and could be proud of them.
