Bu kitap beklediğim gibi değildi. Ve bunu kapak görüntüsünden açıkça gösteriyor. Femme kimlikleri hakkında daha fazla teorik konuşma bekliyordum. Bu hiç bir kitap değil ve bu iyi bir şey! Makaleler, öyküler, şiirler ve "femme" gibi yapılara eleştirel olarak bakan ve bu kelimenin kendileri için ne anlama geldiğini tüm farklı şekillerde anlatan daha fazla kitaba ihtiyacımız var. Biraz daha sıkı olduğunu hissettim ben daha yüksek bir daha gözden geçirme verirdi. Bazen, bu femme hakkında tartışma yapmak için arzu arzusu femme hakkında gergin hissettim. Ama Michelle Tea'nin paten pistinde ortaokul öğrencisi olma hikayesi gibi femme'den hiç bahsetmeyen bazıları, radikal bir peri partisinde gerçekleşen hikaye gibi mükemmel bir şekilde uyuyor. Seks işçileri ve femmes arasında sık sık yapılan bağlantıları seviyorum, ama o zaman biraz zorlanmış, biraz fazla hissetmiştim. Dışarıda silah kullanmadan yüzsüz çok sayıda femme deneyimi var ve keşke bunlardan daha fazlasını görsek. AMA-- öndeki resim, o bıçak olmadan, bacaklarının arasında o kadar seksi bir görüntü olmazdı.
3.5 stars This review was first posted @ The Australian Bookshelf Shelter is the first YA novel in the new Mickey Bolitar series by bestselling mystery author, Harlan Coben. Mickey is a fifteen year old boy who starts at a new school and has to deal with all the usual high school problems of making friends, avoiding enemies and finding his place. But Mickey is not really your average kid, considering his father recently died and his mother checked into rehab and he has moved in with his uncle who he does not regard highly. Then his new girlfriend Ashley goes missing and Mickey becomes the school detective to try and track her down. At first I wasn’t sure whether I would enjoy this novel as Mickey’s POV is written in a very matter-of-fact and proud manner which made it difficult to relate to him as a character initially. He did end up growing on me though as he is a caring person who looks out for those who don’t have the same advantages as him in life. Shelter is very much a mystery novel in a YA setting and its unpredictability made it an attractive standout to other novels in this genre. I had no idea where the storyline was going for most of the novel which at times were frustrating because nothing was answered but at the same time I kept turning the pages to see what would happen next. I really enjoyed the secondary characters Spoon and Ema and they added a nice dimension to the story. The Bat Lady who implants the idea that Mickey’s father may still be alive is a quirky character who creates more questions than answers in this story. Ashley made only a fleeting impression at the beginning of the book so I didn’t have much of an allegiance with her and this made it difficult to relate to Mickey’s persistence in trying to find her. I like that this novel brought to the forefront many issues that teens are faced with; drug addiction, grief, loss and bullying. Shelter has intrigued me enough to want to read more of the series as it is released, but I do hope that some of the cliff-hanger questions are answered.
If I needed your condescension, I'd ask for it. ___________________________ Certain things time simply buried more visibly than others. Was it not so?
Some great chapters, some very weak ones too. Aside from The Beak of the Finch, this is the best overall book on evolution that I've read.
Disappointing venture from one of my favourite authors. The focus of the story was split between too many characters. We had 3 sets of couples, all of whom we were meeting for the first time and by jumping from one to the other it meant that there was no real depth to any of them. Also the romance between Mac & Shane was ridiculously unbelievable. I hate stories were the character meet once and then they are 'in love'. They don't even know each other. The relationship between S & e was more believable as they has least had known each other for years. Also none of the 'greater thans' were particular likeable. Anna was the most likeable and Shane was ok too - the rest were kind of wooden and annoying and Joesph came across as kind of a jerk (always a danger when you give someone super superpowers).
Borrowed from public library. Born in Jerusalem in 1939, Amos Oz is the highly regarded author of numerous works of fiction and collections of essays. Awards, translated into more than 30 languages. Lives in Israel. Mixture of prose, poetry tells a story, interacting characters (dead and alive) with Narrator's voice. Unbelievably raw, much focus on the flesh. Son is dealing with mother's death, yet all centered around basic human needs. Translator alos many prized. Didn't really like the book.
