Okay, this book is good. The author has some unique and creative ideas, and it's a quick one!
A quote at the beginning of the book: Sorry -Anonymous
Page 25: There is no lower bound on decency. Deep saw it, he understood it, what was out there, and he let it seep in, and once it gets in, it gets all the way in, and it never comes out."
It's a good one, read it dudes!
I like this author from another book I've read. This novel is dystopian and the protagonist is jumping from place to place looking for the father of her child.
I say, this book is a little interesting, but it also sucks, because of this world being so bad in the novel, everyone here is so bad, and even if she finds her boyfriend, it seems bleak either way. Anyway, this title has no conclusion, it's like a TV drama, stay tuned, but with no ending, so there is basically nothing to be tuned with.
Hi, this book is so boring!
This book was good! It was a little weird, and the plot didn't make much sense, but it doesn't matter because the author creates an alterniative reality really well and stuff!!!
Regarding parents: p.11:
"But there's no way to erase the DNA they passed down to me. If I wanted to drive that away, I'd have to get rid of me."
On Cats p. 50:
"There're all sorts of cats -- just like there're all sorts of people."
Also, it's cool to use the contraction: there're in a sentence!
On Life, P. 287:
"Listen, every object's in flux. The Earth, time, concepts, love life, faith, justice, evil -- they're all fluid and in transition. They don't stay in one form or in one place forever. The whole universe is like some big FedEx box."
"Life's crappy, no matter how you cut it."
On Death, p. 294:
"To be honest about it, I'm not trying to die. I'm just waiting for death to come. Like sitting on a bench at the station, waiting for the train."
on Love P 297:
You're not the person who discovered that feeling, so don't go trying to patent it, okay?"
It was funny how the protagonist was going into fits deciding what to post on her social media account, and stuff like that.
This book by Han Han was written by a famous writer who was a high school dropout, and who is also a professional race car driver! He spent all his money from his writing to take racing lessons, and now he is super successful on different levels!!!
This is a book of non-fiction, with his essays, but it's his biography that really appeals to me, I wish I was successful too!!!!
This book is pretty dark -- it tackles the question: why do we have to have kids? why do we have to go to work? Building on her earlier work "Convenience Store Woman," in which a woman lets a crazy man move in to her apartment so that people stop asking why she's single, this novel sees society as a "factory" -- either you procreate and work, or they will be out to get you!!!
This is basically a cool photo book! It's really relaxing to look at this Japanese homes, and their zen gardens!!! My only complaint is that this book doesn't really address the hustle and bustle of the city, but whatever! The title of this book should be "Peaceful pictures of Japanese homes."
""Let him beat me, let him treat me badly, but let him relieve me of this goddamned need to deal with my own life," the bear seemed to be saying."
"For me, Communism was a wonderful time. I'm sorry I didn't have a bear then. People wee in better moods. They were happy. But nowadays there's nothing but frustration. Everyone's chasing his own tail."
"Ivanov's dream is to release the real predator's instinct in them. But how can that be done? "Of course, we could release some chickens and see if our bears would go after them," he conjectures. "But that would be contrary to our values, which holds that every creature deserves respect. We'd never do that."
How do you exercise that instinct in these conditions? It's a very good question, to which Ivanov has been seeking the answer for several years. And he has an idea. In the near future, he's planning to tie thin ropes between two trees at two different heights, to form a square. He'll attach a dead fish to the ropes. With the help of a special small motor, the fish will move up, left, down, and right around the square. And to satisfy his hunger, the bear will have to catch it."
"But what could our mother bears teach their offspring? Maybe just that when a truck comes along, there's going to be food."
