Piace per Elisir (Covenant Vol. 4)
The gubbish ran down the walls as I sat, as I sat the gubble gubble. I looked down at the gubbish where my fingers used to be, as I sat finger bones shiny with gubbish click clacked on a rusty metal framework, coloured wires slithering in and out of it like lustful worms. As I sat down to write my gubbish review I gubbled, I saw the wet bones click clacking on dirty metal. We're all gubbish in the end... - One of the more surreal books I've read by PKD - Awesome :)
An east read that is hard to read when faced with putting down a dog. These folks work so hard with such desperate cases but I am giving up and my sick and randomly aggressive dog. Too bad she's not a shepherd, maybe they would take her. She was supposed to be 1/2 GS, maybe she wouldn't hav so many problems if she was. Thanks goodness for people like the folks at Coastal Shepherd Rescue.
First of all, I would totally choose this book based on its cover. It's beautiful! It takes basically every Italian stereotype and makes them funny...and sweet. It reminds me of that really cute GE commerical where the kid catches wind in a bottle and brings it to his grandpa's birthday party. :) Wasn't sure about it at first, but I'm liking it more as I get further into it.
Amazing book - the writing is the best I've seen.
The setting for this book is reminiscent of a culture like Tibet, with monastic enclaves of religious and scholarly pursuits. Even the sand picture being created in preparation for a ceremony evokes Tibetan monks' sand mandalas. As in Wells' other books, the female characters are not excluded from positions of influence - the main character, Maskelle, is the avatar of one aspect of godhead in her religion, although she is currently - somewhat by choice - living in exile from the center of faith. The growing crisis that faces her people brings her back to her home, however unwillingly, to confront evil and preserve her world. Wells' skill, in her other books as well as this, lies in creating a whole world that is sufficiently different from our own to be intriguing, but sufficiently familiar to be immediately comfortable. Her characters are vividly cast and, for the most part, fleshed out more than you find in much fantasy/SF writing.
This is one of my very favorite poetry books for kids. I love the illustrations and the poems are great to read aloud.
Actual rating: 3.5 stars My rating would possibly be higher, but the fact that I've read The Hunger Games this year is keeping me from liking this book any more. Comparing the two is unavoidable. Suzanne Collins said she was watching a reality show on one channel and footage of the Iraq war on the other when she got the idea for The Hunger Games. I'll take a wild guess and say that Snyder got the idea for Inside Out while watching that great National Geographic special about the Berlin Wall. :) This IS most definitely an allegory for the Berlin Wall. After a military coup, a single family rewrote the rules and separated the population into two groups: the Uppers and the scrubs. There is a strong barrier between two parts of the population, and it's impossible to cross. What's on the other side of the barrier (or in this case on higher levels) sounds like a promised land, but Pop Cops (Population Control Police), led by the ruling family, are everywhere, ready to kill anybody brave enough to think about crossing. Still, there are tunnels and air pipes that can take you to the other side, but you have to be crazy enough to try AND ready to die the second you are caught. Only the very loyal and privileged can legally cross from one side to the other. There is also a very strong propaganda on both sides, designed to strenghten the barrier and to create distrust between the groups. Even the little things like food on one side and on the other can be linked to East and West Berlin. I don't want to write any spoilers and going into details and drawing more parallels would certainly lead to that. I will read Outside In next, and make my decision on the series after that.
This historical fiction picture book deals with the orphan trains that ran from the 1860's to 1920's. The story personalizes the events with the main character, who is the last child chosen.
This book is about ants. The author makes the mistake of thinking everyone else will be as interested in ants as he is and focuses much more on the ants' story than on the humans'. However, even though it was boring in places and I didn't like the ending, I am still fascinated by the interesting things I now know about ants (and I have verified them on wikipedia, so they must be true), so the book did have its good points.
What a creative and entertaining story! I couldn't put this book down! The author kept drawing me in with his interesting plot twists. I have recommended this book to many students, assuring them that it has nothing to do with homosexuality. They have loved it as I did!
So, so, so very bad.
