Reviews
reviewed Kafka on the Shore. June 12, 2010
Kafka on the Shore, by Haruki Murakami
I'll state why:      Haruki Murakami is not your conventional author. He's not your conventional anything, as a matter of fact. Actually his novels are playgrounds rather than …
reviewed The Infinite Man. June 10, 2010
The Infinite Man
I first picked this one up on a whim at a used bookstore some years ago. It had an attractive enough title, and the author was one which I could not for the life of me recall having ever heard of. Opening …
reviewed Anna Karenina (book). June 10, 2010
Anna Karenina
We start out in one man's head. A sin has been committed against his wife -- that of adultery -- but is it really so wrong to merely follow one's own true feelings? Should one persist in a state …

Nora R
The sight of her many books makes me think, "Shut up, shut up, shut up!" And yes, I've read one of them before, so help me god I read the fucking thing. Want a quick tip? I'd prefer drinking myself into …

Men Are from Mars
Usually I think theory satisfactorily precedes experience, for example if you're dealing with risky matters of physics like avoiding a child in the street or cutting a vegetable without drawing your own …

Comics
A graphic upon which medium?? Can my sandwich be a 'comics'? Is the air a 'comics'? Is our government comprised of nothing but 'comics'? Ha-ha. Throw me on the cyber watchdog list for that one!

Yah, comic books are pretty neat.
posted a Quick Tip about Confessor. June 22, 2010
Confessor
I don't know... reading Goodkind is like watching a movie wherein all key objects are overly characterized and expressions glow so as to make every emotion quite obvious. He seems to be satirizing the …

Lovecraft
Still looking for my 'brother of light'. Lovecraft imbues me with no small tincture of hope that such a person exists.

What Dreams May Come by Richard Matheson
Never did read the book although I saw the movie which featured Robin Williams many years ago with my grandmother. After it ended, eyes aglitter with liquid appreciation I said to her, "I liked that movie …

The Lord of the Rings (novel)
I'm supposed to 'say' something about this trilogy? You may as well have asked a chimp to dance while sitting... I guess...
posted a Quick Tip about Harry Potter Years 1-7. June 22, 2010
Harry Potter Series
Stopped at the fourth book, between itself and the fifth of which there was a horrendously large wait. By the time it came out I had lost interest and moved on to bigger and better titles of the fantasy …

Transcendental (hyper-connective, matter manipulating) consciousness is awakened in a young, rebellious, frustrated member of a motorcycle gang. It threatens to multiply beyond all reckoning. 'nuff said. …

I read your Quick Tip about Harry Potter Years 1-7, and I couldn't agree with you more. I never got past book 5. One of these days I will try to finish the series, but it's difficult when there are bigger and better fantasy titles out there.

I believe I have the same edition of "Ender's Game" as you because I remember that letter from the youngster praising Card.

BTW: Thanks for following my reviews/contributions. I should be posting a new review on the book Coraline within the next day or so. Then, I'm going to either write one on "So You Think You Can Dance" or the character of the other mother from the book, which I'm sending to a friend's community. I'm also going to create a list on quotes I collected from the book. I love saving quotes. Their useful for essays and everyday life, lol. :)

Love your take on Twilight! I personally couldn't fathom how a such a Mary Sue character became so popular.
 
June 10, 2010
Just wanted to say hello and welcome to the Cafe Libri Community! I'm loving the contributions you've made thus far. The official community greeter will send you a welcome message soon. In the meantime, I look forward to reading more of your reviews and Quick Tips (the Twilight one was oh so true!). :)
