Bu kitap kesinlikle inanılmazdı! Okumada derin bir yolculuk! Hayata ve Tanrı'ya bakmanın ne bir yolu. Bu kitabı tekrar okuyorum, sadece ilk seferinde kaçırdığım şeyleri deneyimleyebiliyorum. Kız kardeşlerimden birine bile bir kopya gönderdim ve bu kitabı tanıdığım herkese tavsiye ediyorum. Manevi ya da değil olsanız da, bu kitap olaylara benzersiz ve şaşırtıcı perspektiflerden bakar. VAOV! Başlangıçtan geçmek çok zor ama içerdiği harikalar için tüm kitabı hazırlıyor. Pes etme!
a coming of age book from a boy's perspective, Tyler is a good kid who has made some dumb choices and has to learn hard lessons about becoming a man
This book won the Pulitzer Prize for literature in 1942. I read it as part of the 2009 Spring Challenge. in This Our Life takes place at the end of the Depression (or the beginning of the reader's depression, brought on be reading it). The characters are hopeless, the situation is hopeless, the dialogue is hopeless. Let's put a black binding on it and call it quits. I didn't like this book! Read 15.5 Reading Challenge
This was a harmless, heart warming book that did not change my life or enrich my thinking in any large way - except perhaps that I am slightly less afraid of bees. One thing that is a slight pet peeve with me is the healing power apparently inherent in the culture of the 'other'. Here is the formula: 1 caucasian person, hurt and broken by the world they live in, be it by family, work or environment + 1 minority culture (black or asian is fine) = that one caucasian person finding the true wonders in life and becoming a more secure and happy human being after being surrounded by drove of their black or yellow or red skinned friends, who show them beauty and love such as a white person has never known. Thank you minority culture! All black women are not royalty, "like hidden queens". But a little known fact is that all, ALL old asian men are kung fu masters. To summarize, I might criticize this book but I did read it in a weekend and there is something to be said for the ability of an author to keep his/her readers engaged. It is a good beach book. So there.
