A Court of Thorns and Roses is a fantasy book writing by Sarah J. Maas in 2015. This writer wrote also the fantasy book set of Keleana a professional killer who obey to a King she hates (I love also this book because here the main character is a strong-minded woman)
It’s the story of Feyre a young woman who is 19 years old and who muss help her family to survive. In this world, there are immortal creatures who hate mortal like Feyre and her family. The story is after a war between mortal and immortal who the mortal won their freedom because there were the slave of immortal like the civil war in the USA between 1861 and 1865. And ever like after this event that the mortal and immortal are separated. The story begin when Feyre kill accidentally an immortal and when she muss go live with an immortal. She will discover problems of immoral world and become friend with them.
I enjoy this book because all along this book Feyre protect her family even if it created issues for her. It’s also a good book because Feyre overcome her bias about the immortal to help and love them. She is courageous and strong in a world she don’t know and where she risks her life at every moment because in this world she is weak.
I enjoy also the historical reference to the civil war, it’s subtitle but really present in the story weaving with two opposite side, people in slaving and a war for the freedom, laws after this war this war to separate the both side. And indeed a lot of magic! It’s not a secret I love a lot stories with a lot of magic! I wait the second book because, like Keleana, A Court of Thorns and Roses is an other fantasy series of books of Sarah J. Maas. She had a really talent to create an other world even if in this both set it’s almost the same world.
It’s not unbiased but I think it’s really a book to read!
Today I want to talk about a series I have discovered recently. It’s New Girl an american show creating by Elizabeth Meriwether in 2011 and arrived in France in 2016. In the Netfilx synopsis we can read “After a break up withher old boy-friend, Jessica Day move in a loft with tree men who want to explain her how function the world and its secrets”. So it’s the story of every day of Jessica, a young woman played by Zooey Deschanel. We discovered her life and the life of her roommate with a lot of humour. Her flatmates, Nick, Schmidt and Winston, are played by Jake Johnson, Max Greenfield and Lamorne Morris. Each other have a particularly personality and it’s really funny!
I have discovered this series by chance and I don’t regret because I love it so much: there are ever a happy end, a moral and funny moment! This set is perfect to decompress and fit of the giggles guaranteed! It’s also a beautiful story with love, friendship, issues and solutions ! This show looks like a sitcom but not totally. Usually I don’t really like this sort of show but now I have discover New Girl I enjoy wast my time to laugh with the character of Jess and her funny friends!
It’s not unbiased but I think it’s really a serie to see !
Hello dear readers!
Today I am going to introduce you to British humor with a poetry, drawing sketch and text collection called John Lennon in his own write by John Lennon. This collection was published in 1964, when he was 24, so John Lennon was a member ( singer ) of a British band from Liverpool.
The heading should have been written like this: « in his own right » but the author chose to write « write » instead to make a play on words.
In this book there are are a lot of play on words.
The introduction of the book was written by Sir Paul McCartney and the outroduction is a weird drawing.
My favorite poem in this book is « I remember Arnold ». It was the first poem that I have ever read and understand in english even if I had to read it more than one hundred times to be able to get it.
In this poem, the author talks about two « tyke »( means boys ) that he remembers « as if’twer yesterday ». One used to be « always dead on time for his destination now he’s dead on line ».
I found this expression funny because next, the author said between bracket: meaning he’s been got by a train or something. Here, he did a play on words.
I recommend this collection to you all because it’s easy to read and to understand even though you can not comprehend his textes because this collection is considered as none sense. And I also advice you to read it in english because I don’t think you will find the same humor and puns in a translated version as like the original one
Hope you will read it.
My regards to all!!!
Now I am going to talk about The Silence of the Lambs, a thriller book written by Thomas Harris. This book is the second of the Hannibal Lecter’s tetralogy, where the main character is a psychiatrist and a cannibalist. I think, this book is the best, it is by far my favorite one from this tetralogy. This one and all the other books have been adapted as a movie.
This book is focusing on the investigation led by Clarice Sterling. Her main goal is to put behind bars a woman killer who skins his victims to death, his name is Buffalo Bill. So to get more information about this murderer, she has to question Hannibal Lecter, a serial killer who is already convicted and who the new woman killer tries to copy. So the film is all about the cooperation between the FBI agent and the famous serial killer.
Hannibal Lecter represents everything the young Clarice hates and fear.
I chose to talk about this book because I have seen the movie before reading it and I wasn’t disappointed because both are great. I love the suspense. And also in the movie, the scenario is well written and captivating and, I love the actor Anthony Hopkins as the character of Hannibal.
Strange case of Dr.Jekyll and Mr.Hyde is a short novel (the novel has 141 pages) published in january 1886 by Robert Louis Stevenson in London and edited by Longmans and Green & co. It is a rewrite, the first manuscript having been destroyed by Fanny Van de Grift, the wife of the author, who considered it a « notebook full of hogwash ». Duality is at the center of this story.
This is the story of Mr. Utterson (lawyer) who is very worried about his friend Dr. Jekyll. His testament says that all his possessions will be for Mr. Edward Hyde if he disappears for more than a month. Mr. Hyde is a violent man, not handsome, tall, bald, scary and above all, he is capable of killing. Despite the attempts of his friends, Dr. Jekyll refuses to change his will. Every passing day brings new strange facts about Mr. Hyde and Dr. Jekyll. The doctor is getting closer to Sarah who already has a man in his life. His father hates Dr.Jekyll because he says he killed his daughter. They fall in love and live together except one night MR.Hyde hits. He physically hurts her and she is very shocked. By the way Hyde to an apartment not far from his lab. We have a rebound in the end…
I really liked this story. I found it beautiful and at the same time scary because during the transformation it’s scary. I do not necessarily like the horror fantasy genre but it was a discovery for me. It is a story that is touching but at the same time surprising. I really recommend this book.
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is a children’s novel by Roald Dahl (Norwegian author Welsh) published twice: first in the United States by Alfred A. Knopf in 1964 and then in the United Kingdom by Allen & Unwin in 1967. This book was adapted into two very important films: Willy Wonka & the chocolate factory by Mel Stuart’s (with Gene Wilder) and Charlie and chocolate factory by Tim burton’s (with Johnny Depp). There is a continuation of this story which is the Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator by the same author and published in 1972.
This is the story of a little boy named Charlie who lives poorly in a strange house … His dad works in a toothpaste factory. He lives with his grandparents and his parents. Little Charlie is a happy child. He is very lucky but does not know it yet. Willy Wonka decides to close his factory overnight by dismissing all his staff. But one day, the factory starts to smoke. People are asking questions. For them, nobody comes in or out so it must be a mistake. Except that Willy Wonka offers children to find one of the five gold tickets that are in five classic chocolate bars in any corner of the world. After three tablets bought Charlie finds the golden ticket in one of the chocolate bars … his dream is finally realized. He is going to be closer and closer with someone from his family when visiting the chocolate factory. In this factory will spend a lot of things … you will discover new continents .. new people ..
I read the book and saw the movie. I think it’s a beautiful story. Willy Wonka is completely « crazy » and it’s very funny. Besides, you will discover why he is like that. It’s a story without any headaches. The relationship between Charlie and his grandfather is just sublime. I really advise you to read the book and then watch the Tim Burton movie which is my favorite.
