PostSubject: Wind Up Bird Chronicles   Tue Jul 14, 2009 2:46 pm

This weekend I started Wind Up Bird Chronicles by Haruki Murakami. I have wanted to get to this one for so long, and finally found a good price for one on Ebay. Got it this weekend, and after 20 pgs I was hooked. The tone is so solid and dreamlike, just right.

Just started on Anne of the Island, one of the sequels of Anne of Green Gables. The library didn't have Anne of Avonlea. I wanted to read the sequels because Gilbert and Anne's developing romance was too cute. And I loved Gilbert Blythe in the first novel.

Now on to Anne's House of Dreams. I'm so excited!
Anne of the Island was so good! Gilbert is even more of a sweetheart. And Anne—I'm wondering what flaws she has. Very Happy

Dictionary Definition : Rodent - Homo Rodentiensis is a typical LC creature. Always ready to laugh about stupidity, this being has long occupied a special moderator status on the LC. As one of the very few LC creatures who actually can get and keep a partner, she is the object of constant envy. Though madness is not part of the average Rodents characteristics, this particular feature can at times be subject to change, especially when striken by severe sleep deprivation.

I LOVE Anne's House of Dreams!!!!! You'll adore Captain Jim, I'm sure.

Anne has flaws...

First and foremost is acting WITHOUT thinking...that has always been her major downfall.
Her mouth tends to run away from her, a lot.
She can't help meddleing sometimes, even when she KNOWS she should stay out of it.

I'll read it tonight. Very Happy When I heard of Captain Jim, he reminded me of Matthew Cuthbert. (Sigh, he was very lovable, too.)
But as she grew up, she hasn't been much of a chatterer or a meddler. I like how Miss Montgomery writes out the time moving without it being too rushed or too dragging. I have read two Anne books now and it seems like as Anne gets older, I'm getting older as well. Laughing
It's no wonder Mark Twain put Anne in league with Lewis Carroll's Alice.

I've read The Bell Jar and The Book Thief, but not A Long Way Gone.

I read The Bell Jar years ago, when I was a preteen. I remember it disturbed me at the time, but I was young, so it's understandable. I think you'll like it, though; you're older than I was when I read it, so you'll understand better, too.

The Book Thief I read earlier this year, and I loved it. Markus Zusak's writing style is a little choppy, but his stories are great, so it makes up for it.
The Book Thief will make you cry, by the way. I remember reading it in study hall, and I was trying not to cry, because I didn't want to look bizarre.

I have just started reading "For Whom The Bell Tolls". Unbelievably, this is my first Hemingway novel. I think I waited this long because I've read a few short stories by him that did not impress me. I am about 50 pages into it. It is about an American (I think he is American, anyway, although that has not been made clear) fighting on the side of the partisans during the Spanish Civil War in the 1930's. So far I am enjoying it. Has anybody else here read any Hemingway?

Yes, I have - "Fiesta: The Sun Also Rises". To be honest, in my personal little opinion, Hemingway is a sottish, misogynist asshole with a turn for writing stories about precisely this. I did a calculation, too - if the characters actually drank as much as he says, and in the time he specifies, they would be dead by page 30. (Not that I would have missed them very much.) My father just gave me "The Old Man and the Sea", and I am ready to give it a shot. After all, Hemingway is supposed to be one of the greatest novelists of the 20th century, so his books cannot all be crappy, can they? Anyway... let me know how you like him, maybe that will be the incentive I need Smile

It's more of a novella, I guess, but I recently reread The Old Man and The Sea. I think this is an example of one of Hemmingway's talents, being how he can create a descriptive and effective story with such simple sentences and words.

"Everything about him was old except his eyes and they were the same color as the sea and were cheerful and undefeated."

I really like his style; nearly each simple sentence on its own is powerful, even though he uses a very simple vocabulary (most words in the story are 1 or 2 syllables) and I didn't have to pull out the dictionary once in spite of my own limited vocabulary.

**On another interesting note, "The Old Man and the Sea", while very engaging, is also a very straightforward story. Hemmingway was reported to have agressively defended his story as having face value only; he says it was not a parable or symbolic of anything else. Yet, literary scholars have analyzed it for some time, and have found a "deeper" story or parable as intense as the meaning of God within the story.

It raises an interesting point regarding stories that are symbolic or supposedly have a deeper meaning. I think a lot of stories, even if they weren't intended to, could be analyzed and analyzed again until someone can "find" a deeper meaning or symbology within it. While Hemmingway wouldn't accept this, I wonder how many other authors have written a story meant to be taken at face value, then someone claims to have found a greater meaning within it, and the author goes along with it saying "ahh, sure, yah, that is what I meant when I wrote that...". Just a thought.

PostSubject: Kafka   Fri Aug 07, 2009 2:22 pm

I just started reading "The Trial" by Franz Kafka. "The Metamorphisis" is the only other Kafka story I have read.

I picked this up, though, because I recently finished "Wind Up Bird Chronicles" by Huraki Murakami, which is now one of my most favorite books of all time. And, Murakami is heavily influenced by Franz Kafka, so I had to take a look for myself.

I'm only in 50 pages or so, but already I get the clearly communicated "surreal" or "dreamlike" feeling that came through very well in Murakami's work as well, which has me hooked.

Anyone else a Kafka fan?

Yes, I am! I had to read "Metamorphosis" in school, and hated it, but when I reread it later, I liked it a lot. I also read a couple of his short stories. "The penal colony" I remember best - I nearly choked with disgust when reading it.

Laura, how often do you have a "Buddy Reading" post going on, as you do now with The Great Gatsby?

Im about 100 pages in to The Trial now, and it is very engaging, but also very strange and open for interpretation, especially as a parable. Because of that I thought it might make a great book for a group to go through. Its a relatively quick read as well.

This is our second attempt. We had a go on the "Phantom of the Opera" (I am still stuck somewhere around the middle, but I keep going). If you want to suggest it to the group, go ahead. I would suggest placing it after Gatsby has been finished, though. I think I recall that Kafka's work is largely available on Gutenberg, isn't it? So at least we would not have much trouble getting a hold of a copy each.

I finished, I finished! It took weeks, and a couple failed attempts, but I finally finished Great Expectations. It feel good to be done with that thing.

I'm now reading The Book Thief. I get the feeling this isn't going to be a happy book. The writing is great, though, and I love the fact that Death is narrating. I am hooked.

I started A Long Way Gone today. This is going to be painful to read. The story, so far, is great. The writing fails. His sentences are choppy, he rambles, and there is no imagery whatsoever. After reading The Book Thief, which is positively stuffed with poetic descriptions, this is quite a let down.

I have (finally) finished Hemingway's "For Whom The Bell Tolls". I've heard a lot of bad things about Hemingway, and I must admit I have not enjoyed the few short stories of his that I have read, but the novel was actually pretty good. His depictions of female characters were a bit misogynistic, but I've read far worse as far as that goes. His depictions of wartime cruelty are convincing. The main character, Robert Jordan, is actually one you can root for.

I agree - I always liked her, too. Though I admit, I have learned to like Mary Warren in a way. She may be whiny, weak and treacherous... oh wait. I don't like her.

I'm reading Tess of D'urbervilles by Thomas Hardy. I'm around page fifty and haven't been able to get into it, though.

One book I recently read that I liked was One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. I'm going to see a play based on it in a couple hours. I'm so excited, even if I heard in reviews that McMurphy wasn't so good.

Solveig, really? I always end up liking characters I play on some level, and I've played some pretty unlikable characters.

Well. At first I did not like her, then I did like her, and in the end, I began to dislike her again...
