MY THOUGHTS ABOUT THIS BOOK

  Eiffel-Tower#2  Eiffel-Tower#2

Writing this review turned out to be just as challenging as reading Gustave Flaubert: The Ambiguity of Imagination. And if you happen to read the synopsis, you will be even more confused: they talk about a certain Harel Bey, but he does not appear in the book until page 63. Before that, I had a hard time understanding what was going on, I even had to restart reading the whole book. There were some very interesting elements however.

GOOD BOOKS FOR YOUR WEEK-END 

08/13-14/2011

 

This week has been here paradise like, as for the weather. I have spent glorious hours reading on my tiny porch, in the company Of birds coming to the feeders or to have a bath. If you are not sure what to take with you to enjoy this coming week, here are some suggestions for you, plus also as usual my list of current reads that you can see in the left menu, and if you click on the logo, you will access lots of other similar lists posted today by other bloggers:

FICTION

This Burns My Heart, by Samuel Park

David, by Mary Hoffman
have you ever wondered who was the person behind the famous statue of David?? Here is his possible life. Sometimes I wonder where authors find their ideas, I find this one rather smart and original

The Lady in the Tower: The Fall of Anne Boleyn , by Alison Weird
recommended by another blogger, (you should check his blog, he has great reviews), who was reading like me Wolf Hall. Sounds like a great writer and perspective

Madame Bovary’s Daughter, by Linda Urbach.
have you ever wondered what happened to Emma’s daughter?

Uncle Yanya,  by Anton Chekhov
if you don’t know this famous author, this play could be a good introduction for you

 

NON-FICTION

I’m Feeling Lucky, Douglas Edwards
on Google”s world

The Rose of Martinique: A Life of Napoleon’s Josephine, by Andrea Stuart

Woodswoman, by Anne LaBastille
abo0ut an incredible woman and her adventure sin nature

World Without Fish, by Mark Kurlansky
what could happen soon to our world

On Reading, by Marcel Proust and John Ruskin
I’m totally rediscovering Proust, in French, and loving him so much. This could be an interesting essay

I keep running into very interesting books on France and Paris, and I am thinking of introducting a meme on French books/culture. What do you think? Would you be interested?
