Bu kitapta Appalachian Trail yürüyüş iki adam hakkında büyük bir mizah. Bryson'un ısırma zekası tüm hikayeleri daha da iyi hale getirir!
As I continue to work my way through the Oz books with my kids, this one was probably my least favorite so far. I still enjoyed it, but not as much as the previous three. Dorothy was as adorable and charming as always, and I loved her pet kitten Eureka. However, the other characters just weren't as engaging as previous books. Zeb was pratically non-existant. Although, Jim the cab-horse was rather funny. The story wasn't as exciting either. While it continues to follow the familiar formula of the previous Oz books (i.e., getting from being lost to back home), the sense of adventure and excitment wasn't as prevalent. I didn't feel like the characters were ever in any real danger this time. I have to add though, once the characters reach Oz, we have "The Trial of Eureka the Kitten". This chapter was my favorite, and especially well done. I read all of the L. Frank Baum Oz books as kid and I remember that some of the later ones were my favorites. I'm looking forward to getting to these with my kids.
Cute connection btwn h/h...had to like it of course, the hero is a dr.
Reading other reviews, especially negative ones, made me realize what different expectations people had for this. It's billed as romantic, but I didn't really see it as romantic in the traditional sense...it's mostly a story of friendship. Sometimes best friends, sometimes barely in touch, sometimes more than friends. Because you only catch up with these characters once a year, it's like eavesdropping through a swinging door...you only hear parts of the stories and know there's a lot you've missed. So it's a little frustrating, but it definately moves you along through their lives. There's no good guy to cheer for, no real action...it seems to just be observing these lives, with the accompanying intermittent dramas and down periods. Sometimes I wanted them to end up together and sometimes it seemed like the wrong way to go. While there are things to dislike about the characters, I didn't dislike them, though I was surprised I didn't have a a stronger reaction to the ending. I cared enough about them to see where they were going, but not enough for them to stay with me when I put the book down. Throughout the book, I'd think...oh this is why Dexter needs Emma, and vice versa, then think...oh no, this is why Emma can't be with Dexter and again, vice versa...both have their faults, though some stand out more than others, both would be significant to any relationship or friendship. Overall, I'm not sure who I would recommend this one to, even though I liked it. It's not a romance, but not literary, you could play pseudo-psychoanalysis, but the book doesn't really get into WHY they act like they do. Tough to classify, and not one I'll need to reread, but at the same time, if someome picked it up, I would tell them to give it a try: as long as they weren't looking for a 'romance' or something else specific from it.
Not too bad of a book. Discussed a few Celtic and Norse Goddesses, gave some background info on the individual goddess and then a song or poem and a ritual to use to invoke the goddess.
فاروق الشاعر الذي يجيد شعره من أول حرفٍ فيه لآخر قطر نبع يسقي القارئين منه ، أحبّ صفحة الإهداء في كل كتبه يجيد انتقاء الشعر فيها جيداً وكان هذا شعر صفحة الإهداء : ولو خيرتُ في وطنٍ لقلت هواكِ أوطاني ولو أنساكِ يا عمري خفايا القلب تنساني اذا ما ضعتُ في دربٍ ففي عينيكِ عنواني قصائد أحببتها : قبل أن نمضي لست مثل الناس لمن أعطي قلبي أريد الحياة وأبحث عنك كثيرا كثيرا خصوصاً قصيدته "لمن أعطي قلبي" كنت أحفظ آخر أبياتها واليوم قرأتها كاملة ، وكما أقول دوماً شعر فاروق جويدة سحرُ آسر.
Not bad, not great. Despite the sinister covers and that the plot is about assissins, there's really not all that much action. Every once in a while something happens, but sometimes it seems rushed. Good character development and moral struggles though. I think it depends on what you expect of the book before you read it whether or not you'll like it. If you're going for good character plots, okay... if you are going for all out crazy non-stop action, not so much...
