Bunun çok şaşırtıcı olduğunu düşünüyorum. Aslan'ın ne olduğunu ve şeylerin temel anlamının ne olduğunu ve olabileceğini gerçekten okuyabilirsiniz. Ayrıca kitabı o kadar çok sevdim ki köpeğimin adı aslandan geliyor.

Keyifli ama hafif bir derinlik.

This series has a very unique system of magic, something I can always get behind. It's interesting enough that I don't go cross-eyed reading page after page of description of use. That mixed with a female main character of strength, and it's a Cocktail of Happiness. While the charactors can be a little one-dimensional, it's 'made up' for with the breadth of characters. Or perhaps it's that breadth of characters that keeps the author from being able to explore the characters really deeply. I don't know that its necessarily a bad thing; the book is huge, though, and being able to *really* get behind more than one of the characters might help the reading go a little quicker. But... is that really what we want? :) I don't know. I will definitely read the next installment.

The script of the Old Vic's adaptation of Report to the Academy (from the collection, A Country Doctor, reviewed here: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show...). It is a first person/ape account of how a chimp was captured in Africa, brought to Europe in a crate and gradually humanised his behaviour as a means of freedom, eventually becoming a variety performer. He is rich and famous and has a female chimp companion, but he has no love for humans, yet is no longer an ape. Like most good stories, it raises more questions than it answers, particularly about what it is that makes us human and separates us from the apes - still a hot topic in many circles. Kathryn Hunter's performance (illustrated on the cover) was stunning in its skill and variety: capturing the pain and humour perfectly of Red Peter's story. It is a very good and faithful adaptation in its own right, but for reading, I still (just) prefer Kafka's original. See my Kafka-related bookshelf for other works by and about Kafka (http://www.goodreads.com/review/list/...).

This is one of my favourite books of all time; I could read it again and again without getting bored. There are so many subtle jokes that you only pick up on when you read it again. The tone is perfect, the characters distinct, and the footnotes are love. ♥
