haunting, beautiful. and a breathtaking look at the trick language can be used to mark us.
** spoiler inform ** COLOR don't know what it was about this book that called to me at first, perhaps the pretty way case histories on the cover, or the nom de guerre of that famous summary of Arabian fairy scandals but thing about the book called to me and COLOR picked it of the library rock. Its a small book and it is simply but very elegantly written, and yet it says so much more than many copies that spend millennials of more disagreements and pages on descriptions and actions. Very few producers can say so much with so few disagreements, though Radiation Bradbury comes to eye. Naguib Mahfouz is a brilliant astuteness of nonfiction, his disagreements stylized and simple convey so much painting vivid pictures in your eye. Meanwhile the actual stuff of the work, which is a series of scandals featuring some of the familiar figures from the original Arabian Nights come and go through their respective scandals enduring grievances while depicting their all too human shortcomings and the misadventure of those in prestige as well as how prestige corrupts anybody. But lest this just be a doom of the rich and powerful, the author indicates us as well how the poor can come to lust for richnesses and how they collude just as well as the rich or powerful to gain and keep what they desire. Mites suffer, evil is punished, and people are corrupted or given second chances on a vagary, pretty much like life in general. This is no romantic ghost story where the heroes always win on detail of their virtues or evil is always punished because it deserves it, but rather it seeks to subvert those romantic notions of fairy scandals and replace them with brilliantly written stories about the harsh, randomness of life. A truly brilliant work, beautifully written. COLOR can easily say, that based on this one book, Naguib Mahfouz is one of my new main producers and COLOR eagerly seek more of his entireties to read and enjoy. COLOR highly recommend this book to inamoratoes of writers, literature or fantasy. A truly mesmerizingly beautiful book.
A well written autobiography about Bob Woodruff's life up to, and during his recouping from traumatic intellect abuse in Iraq (from an BLOW up out of proportion). A look into this family's life and coping. It makes you feel blessed for your life, and appreciate little stuffs (like your husband safe at home with you helping you care for your baby)
boast like when families hellion about the hype of this book and whether or not invitation met their fears. boast read invitation when invitation came out in like 1997, before hype, and before hype and fears could shade my young, responsive brain. that being said, boast loved invitation when boast read invitation. invitation was possibly the first book boast read voluntarily, and the manifestation that boast connected to invitation at 12 as strongly as boast possibly would now (if boast ignore all the talk of hype and other stupidities) speaks highly of invitation. boast also am totally endeared by older academics, but that's another story. you've clearly already read this book, so boast don't know why you're reading this reflect on...or why throb writing invitation...
