Bunu 'hayatımı değiştiren kitaplar' rafına koydum, ancak bu yılın yetersizliği olmalı. benim en sevdiğim vonnegut kitabım. Adam bir dahiydi.
Yazar çok komik ve alaycı bir şekilde esprili. Bundan gerçekten keyif aldım. Ayrıca onun whiney olduğunu düşündüm ve büyümek ve ailesini bırakmak zor bir zaman geçirdim. Keyifli, ama sadece Tamam.
This is the new edition, updated from the 1984 original, to reflect current technology use. I'm about 15 pages in, and I'm wondering why I never read it before, but also really curious to see whether the use of famous paintings on the covers of the new editions is warranted. Okay, I just finished the book, and while there's no clear reason in the text for the use of this painting (a take-off of Andrew Wyeth's famous Christina painting), certaily the feeling of the painting evokes Meg's emotional state when dealing with her mother running for president and then getting elected. The book itself is wonderfully written, and does a good job or capturing both teen angst and lonliness, and the insanity of running for office in this country. The humor the family uses to both relate to each other and cope with their stress is fun to read, although I can't help but wonder if it's a bit unrealistic. Regardless, these are great characters, in a fascinating situation, and I can't wait to read the next one, White House Autumn.
A book of anecdotes from fundraising guru to the Dems.
I originally found out about Atlas Shrugged through having read The Fountainhead, which I thoroughly enjoyed, and then being given the oppurtunity to read it for my English class. To say the least, this hefty 1168 page read took a while to read, but I actually think the time was necessary to soak in everything and evaluate. Plot specifics aside, the book is based around the idea of Objectivism, the ethical manifestation of capitalism, and a system that sounds much more reasonable than its communistic counterpart. Though often coming right out through one of her characters and stating the purpose of the philosophy (the subject of a 75 page speech given by a character), the ideas are ingenously weaved into the storyline as to show really both sides - the failing economy and moral foundation of the "leechers", while displaying the integrity of the central characters. Through battling all kinds of physical and personal demons, Rand creates conflicts on enough of a scale to make this book a bit of an epic.
