En sevdiğim fantezi kitabım değil, mesaj güzel. Sihir uygulama özgürlüğü bir sihirbaz için iyi bir şeydir!
Eğer gençlik yıllarında Gezgin Pantolon Kardeşliği serisini okursanız, unutulmaz dört arkadaşın son taksitine göz atın. Alıcı dikkat, kapatma alacaksınız ama size çok sayıda Kleenex dokuya mal olacak.
A day in the life of a house cat who's lost his purr.
** spoiler alert ** First read Feb 2011 Read it again right after finishing Catching Fire ahead of seeing the movie. The movie is good by the way. This one is still my favorite. I can't believe I didn't leave a comment the first time I read it. It's my favorite not because of the sagging middle or the racing action at the climax of the war, but because she's messed up at the end. Because trauma changes you, it takes time to deal with war and intense combat situations. Katniss is manipulated physically and emotionally so often without time to search out her own mind. She fought for literal survival of her body and mind. She can mend, but she is changed. Pita gets that, he is utterly devoted to her and they share a bond of experiences that Gale is not a part of. Also Gale was not only jealous if Pita as a competing suiter, but Gale was jealous of Katniss and Pita because they got to fight. Gale was a man of action with a lot of fight still in him, Pita was a peace lover forced to survive, and Katniss was a fighter that got all used up. It's not about the love triangle, it's that the book ended 'real'.
This book chronicles George Hawkins bike journey from the northiest of North America to the tip of South America, a remarkable achievement. George goes into great detail regarding what he ate (which was all the time because he's biking across a continent!) and when he had the back door trots (which was often). His entries about Costa Rica and Machu Picchu are highlights in both the trip and the book. Another aspect that made the book enjoyable was when fantasy was incorporated, such as when he dreamed raccoons were riding off with his bike. The only downside to the book is occasionally the wording and sentence structure is awkward, but you still the point (which is he rode his bike for three years from Alaska to Tierra Del Fuego). Overall, the message of the book- like many other travel books- is that when you follow your dreams, the universe will conspire to help you. Mr. Hawkins made the acquaintance of numerous people on his travels and almost all of them were kind and generous. His trip and overall experience would not have succeeded without the altruism of others.
