Genel olarak iyi. Bu kitap Amerika'daki eğitim sisteminin ilginç bir tarihi, ancak dikkatim devam ederken azaldı. Kişisel hayatı ve kariyeri ile ilgili bölümler olmadan gidebilirdim ve sonunda bu parçaları yarıya kadar atladım. Eğitim sistemimizi daha iyi hale getirmek için tartışılan mevcut yollarla ilgili iyi bir fikir vermektedir.
Bunu her zaman okuyacağım!
Unbelievably sweet and fun!
Reading this book is a lot like watching the movie Beaches. Every time, I hope it ends differently. It doesn't. The title doesn't lie, people. This is a wonderful book, though. It's good for advanced readers at the middle school level, and ties in well with the 8th grade history curriculum. It's also a great springboard for discussions about war and justice.
There is something of an aura around this book, in certain circles-- and that aura is deserved. 'Speedboat' is very smart, often very funny, occasionally cynical, and occasionally disaffected, as if the author were lamenting the way we live now, while refusing to be nostalgic for some other time, and some other way of living. In 'Reality Hunger,' David Shields (who has long admired this book) refers to 'Speedboat' as a "collage novel," which I think is an apt description. Shields writes about the narrator (or is it Adler herself?): "She changes subjects like a brilliant schizophrenic, making irrational sense."
