The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle * Haruki Murakami Book Review

From the series of books that are filled with double-meanings and not everything is as it seems (like 1Q84 and Kafka on the shore) comes another story so convoluted that it took me three weeks to finish it and a paper to mark who was who and who could be who. In a Tokyo suburb … Continue reading The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle * Haruki Murakami Book Review

Worlds Beyond * Ian Wilson

"There is one consistent feature to stories of so-called "ghosts", it is that they almost invariably seem to have their roots in some tragedy from the past." Worlds Beyond is the title of a thirteen-part TV series which explores the world of paranormal as it has been revealed in the lives of countless "ordinary" people … Continue reading Worlds Beyond * Ian Wilson

Tipuri de inteligenta (Romanian)

Inteligenţa este un lucru ciudat. Unii oameni despre care se crede ca ar fi inteligenţi au rezultate groaznice la testele standardizate. Oamenii care salveaza vieţi nu sunt intotdeauna inteligenţi şi unii oameni autişti pot citi, aduna, sau scrie mai repede sau mai bine decat oamenii cu un coeficient de inteligenţă înalt. Realizând că sunt multe … Continue reading Tipuri de inteligenta (Romanian)

The Good Girl * Fiona Neill Book Review

After a good book like Reconstructing Amelia  I was slightly disappointed by Fiona Neill's take on teen drama in the Internet era and the dangers of posting compromising material about oneself online. While Amelia's story was more focused on the aftermath of bullying, Romy's story is focused on the how and why's and the family … Continue reading The Good Girl * Fiona Neill Book Review

When is a good time for a child to leave the parent’s house?

I have met some people who think it's acceptable to sit on their parent's sofa, eat their food, drive their car and complain when they get asked to go out and find a job. So I started asking myself, when is a good time for a child to leave home? I suppose it depends on … Continue reading When is a good time for a child to leave the parent’s house?

The Pentacle * Stephen King Short Story

I thought I read everything that the King produced but this one came as a surprise. Magic spells, blood sacrifices, covens called "Lucifer's disciples". This is a story of a group of friends who are trying to invoke the old gods of death from ancient Mesopotamia like Marduk (This sounds a lot like Anne Rice's … Continue reading The Pentacle * Stephen King Short Story

Ode: Intimations of Immortality from Recollections of Early Childhood BY WILLIAM WORDSWORTH

There was a time when meadow, grove, and stream, The earth, and every common sight, To me did seem Apparelled in celestial light, The glory and the freshness of a dream. It is not now as it hath been of yore;— Turn wheresoe'er I may, By night or day. The things which I have seen … Continue reading Ode: Intimations of Immortality from Recollections of Early Childhood BY WILLIAM WORDSWORTH

Forever Odd * Odd Thomas Series by Dean Koontz

The heart is an artist that paints over what profoundly disturbs us, leaving on the canvas a less dark, less sharp version of the truth. This is a good, if quieter and slower-paced read than ODD THOMAS. We still have Odd with his dead-seeing power and his good heart that wants to help, even if it … Continue reading Forever Odd * Odd Thomas Series by Dean Koontz
