I read a few books lately and they’re good. I want to review them here but seems that I don’t have that time pleasure… So I will list down the books that I like here and maybe at later time I will make review of them.

  1. The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini
  2. A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini
  3. Can You Keep A Secret by Sophie Kinsella
  4. Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte (I read this book long time ago when I was in school but I repeatedly reading it because I like it very much)
  5. The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time by Mark Haddon

Now I’m reading a book of Adeline Yen Mah ” Chinese Cinderella”. I’m also looking forward for these books:

Anyone have any books to recommend to me because I like to read…:)

The Life of Pi

It’s the title of a book authored by Yann Martell. I read it when I was at the U. It was about a 16-year-old Indian boy named Piscine who lost his family (father, mother and brother) in a shipwrecked in the journey from Pondicherry to Canada. He was the only one survivor and along with him on the lifeboat were a hyena, a broken-leg zebra, Orange Juice (an orang utan) and Richard Parker (a 450 pound Bengal tiger)… How he survived the days and nights are yet to be discovered. But now the zebra was dead, eaten by the hyena. Orange Juice too.. the only ones left were Pi, the hyena and the tiger. What a surprise is he was born a Hindu, embraced Christianity and then Islam and he was a believer of those three religions…

It’s about a young shepherd boy whose dream was to be an explorer. He shepherded his flock of sheep and at times he sold his herd to the rich man in town whose daughter liked to hear stories from the boy. The boy somehow felt incline to the beautiful girl and hope that someday she’d be his.

One day he dreamt that there was treasures at the Pyramid and he had to go there to uncovered it. He always wanted to be an explorer yet he couldn’t be sure of his destiny when he became one. He was fascinated by the world and only by being an explorer would he fulfilled his hunger for the world’s offerings. His conflict of staying close to home or journey away from it perplexed him. However, the treasures seemed a lot more excitement and the journey brought him to face experiences he would never get if he was a shepherd. He met with a clairvoyant, his money was stolen before he could get to cross the sea, met with a king, be a worker at a shop, follow a bedwi’s troop, fell in love and had to leave the love in pursuit of the treasures which he long forgotten and given up. 

Such a nice story with simple words yet very strong in values. Love it. A worth reading.

“The wise men understood that this natural world is only an image and a copy of paradise. The existence of this world is simply a guarantee that there exists a world that is perfect. God created the world so that, through its visible objects, men could understand his spiritual teachings and the marvels of his wisdom.”
 ”One is loved because one is loved. No reason is needed for loving.”
 ”I love you because the entire universe conspired to help me find you.”
 ”Listen to your heart because, wherever your heart is, that is where you’ll find your treasure.”

Actually I forget the name of the author… The story is about a doctor who midwifing her wife labor during a stormy night. He thought he’d just had a son instead he also got a daughter at the same time. However, he quickly realized that the daughter had a health problem when she didn’t cry and the eyes told more than everything. He told the nurse to send his daughter to a shelter home where he had given the address. However, the nurse could not let herself do it. Her heart fell for the poor child and she quitted her job, moved out of town and took the baby with her as her own. Meanwhile, the doctor told the wife that their other baby girl was dead. The wife could never forget the daughter they’re supposed to had the whole life and neither was he. In guilty and troubled marriage life, he surpassed the life condition in taking photos – his new hobby – Very interesting to read how the conflicts with his wife, son, the once upon a time nurse and his daughter surfaced one by one. One value that I learn, no matter what it is, if it is about your child, don’t give up. Keep them with you. Even they are less fortunate, they have more surprises than you can think of. Even if she suffered from Down Syndrome…
