I had a great weekend & officialy got a Year
But else there wasn't a lot to do except to read & relax.
And relax I did! With lots of great Books.
Here the ones I read in September. :)
Die Opiumfamilie (The Opium Family - 罂粟之家 - yīngsù zhī jiā [literally; Poppy's House]) - Su, Tong
Such an awesome read. I loved the common ways and crude talking. :D
In the end everyone got, what they did deserve. The only one that didn't was poor Liu Suzi, the daughter of the house. I can only recommend this.
Das Jagdgewehr (The hunting Gun - [猟銃 - Ryoju]) - Yasushi Inoue
I just... I had expected more from this "Booklet". Disappointing!
Thus, I could not with the best will in the world, give this more Stars. Even though it was easy and relaxing to read I have to add.
Kain (Cain) - José Saramago
Damnit, this Book was wicked! :D
I wish there were more great Volumes like that. I also asked myself a few times now, if Saramago has always written this splendid. (I do hope so!)
One problem I have with this book however, or it would have gotten all 10 Stars from me. The man knows no decent Point & Comma placement Rules (he could be my twin). For crying out loud!
Fahrenheit 451 (Fahrenheit 451) - Ray Bradbury
I once started reading this Book back then while I was in College, but had to give it back to our School Library before I was even a quarter through because of lack of time.
This Book should be read by everyone, most of all the "Big Brother" target audience and Justine Bieber/Lady Gaga/etc. fans.
In my opinion it is increasingly likely that our future is moving in this direction. If our governments do not bomb us into oblivion soon, and set the survivors back into the Stone Age(this time nuclear) first.
By the way, I took a look at my Photobucket Stats and saw that people seem to like the Facebook Covers quite a lot. I am thinking about a second post in 2 or 3 weeks.
So if you're interested in anything specific, tell me beforehand and soon. ;)
