Henüz gün aymadı ama yaklaşık bir hafta aradan sonra kocamannnnnnn bir günaydınnnnnn
Bugün yani dün pazartesi ancak toparlandım, dinlendim. Gecenin bir yarısı da paylaşmazsam olmaz dediğim Fısıltı ile ilgili yazıyorum Tutunmak istiyorum güvenli bir kayaya. Sırtımı dayamak istiyorum. Yaşanmışlıklarımı, kabuslarımı, hayaletlerimi yakıp, küllerini rüzgara savurmak istiyorum. Elini tutmak istiyorum aşkın. Yeniden... İyi insanların olduğunu bilmek... Dürüstlüğün, sevginin, mutluluğun, umudun elini tutmak istiyorum
Yiğit ile Selen (Yiğit'in Peri'si) geçmişlerinden gelen hayaletler ve kabuslarla öyle naif bir sevgiye adım atarlar ki hikayelerini, ağzım bir karış açık kalarak, İstanbul' dan Elazığ' a uçak yolculuğu sırasında bitmesin diye diye okudum ve maalesef bitti. Bir erkek Yiğit gibi sevmeli ve bir kadın da Selen gibi güçlü olmalı
Kaleminize sağlık sevgili @gulbaharkurtoglu beklentimin üzerinde bir kitap okudum sayenizde. Editörlüğünü sevgili @okuranne nin yaptığı imzalı kitabım içimi hem titreten hem sıcacık sevgiyle dolduran tavsiye edebileceklerim arasında yerini aldı
"It is is better to know one book intimately than a hundred superficially."
Donna Tartt, "The secret history"
Somehow many people here think that this book if perfect for fall. So here it is.
This book is one of those hate/love cases when I'm not even sure give it 2 stars or 5.
Anyway I can't say that I enjoyed this book a lot. It has an amazing idea! A group of students who are studying Greek decide to recreate an experience of Greek people during their celebrations for Dionysus. What can be better right?
Well, Tartt uses pretty smart language and her vocabulary is good. But.. .
At the beginning of the book nostalgic voice of the main character reminded me of Proust. Well, everybody steals. However closer to the middle of the book that voice was lost and book turned into mechanic repeat of random unimportant acts. The part that I liked the most (references to Greek history and philosophy) was so small and so unimportant that it could be easily removed. (They could just get drunk)
But most of all it's a VERY VERY SUPER SLOW-MOVING PLOT. Even when I already realized what was going to happen, I had to wait 200 more pages for the event to occur. In between characters characters just were talking, making tee, talking, walking, whining, drinking, taking drugs, making tee, sleeping etc. Like OMG..
My impression was that this book needed some good editor. Expressions like "utterly enthrawlled" and constant use of adverbs like "surreptitiously" etc. Made me wonder why this book won any prize.
On the other hand I can't deny that "TSH" is better and much better than majority of YA books out there. The idea was brilliant anyway and the end was pretty unexpected.
So I am confused here.
Have you read this book? What are your thought?
So im usually just late to the party for sooo many books. I've actually just started The Sun Is Also A Star this weekend. I'm about half way and I'm really liking it. Reminds me of a book David Levithan and someone would write.
Man today has been insane but I did get to go to lunch with a few friend. I had so much fun, laughed a ton! It could be the beginning of a pretty awesome friendship.
I’ve always loved the idea of fairies and fae. I found this gem by #brianfroud at a local bookstore in Tulsa called Peace of Mind. It’s what I would describe as more new age but it feels so old school in the amazing 2nd floor bookshop. I didn’t know Brian Froud had done work on movies like #labyrinth. I always love his art and the cards with this Oracle are amazing. I photographed two of my favorites.
