Anyone Read "The People of the River Series"?

Sat, 17 Feb 2018 14:19:16 GMT

I'm sorely tempted in spite of the fact that the prices asked are MUCH too high in my opinion. Though there is no DRM on the books, at Amazon at least, which is to be encouraged I guess. I've seen them in paper book stores for years, but always found something more immediate to buy. Before I click "Buy" at Amazon, I'd like some opinions on the first book in particular, and the series, in general.



A Street Cat Named Bob. Is Bob okay at the end?

Fri, 16 Feb 2018 18:35:43 GMT

Has anyone read "A Street Cat Named Bob"? If so, is the cat still alive at the end of the book? I've read books about animals before and they often die at the end of the book. I hate this. So before I purchase this, which is quite reasonably priced on Amazon UK in Kindle form, could someone please reassure me, or not. Thanks.



Literary Please Look After Mom by Kyung-sook Shin

Tue, 13 Feb 2018 18:34:41 GMT

'When sixty-nine-year-old So-nyo is separated from her husband among the crowds of the Seoul subway station, and vanishes, their children are consumed with loud recriminations, and are awash in sorrow and guilt. As they argue over the "Missing" flyers they are posting throughout the city - how large of a reward to offer, the best way to phrase the text - they realize that none of them have a recent photograph of Mom. Soon a larger question emerges: do they really know the woman they called Mom?' Goodreads (https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/8574333-please-look-after-mom?ac=1&from_search=true) This is the MR Literary Club selection for February 2018. Whether you've already read it or would like to, feel free to start or join in the conversation at any time, and guests are always welcome! So, what are your thoughts on it?

New Leaf Book Club • March 2018 Discussion • The Old Man & the Sea, Ernest Hemingway

Sun, 11 Feb 2018 15:03:01 GMT

*Thread locked until start of discussion on March 15, 2018.* *The Old Man and the Sea* by Ernest Hemingway is the March selection for the New Leaf Book Club. Image: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/7/73/Oldmansea.jpg ---Quote--- *The Old Man and the Sea* is a short novel written by the American author Ernest Hemingway in 1951 in Bimini, Bahamas, and published in 1952. It was the last major work of fiction by Hemingway that was published during his lifetime. One of his most famous works, it tells the story of Santiago, an aging Cuban fisherman who struggles with a giant marlin far out in the Gulf Stream off the coast of Cuba. In 1953, The Old Man and the Sea was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction, and it was cited by the Nobel Committee as contributing to their awarding of the Nobel Prize in Literature to Hemingway in 1954.[2] ---End Quote--- FadedPage (http://fadedpage.com/showbook.php?pid=20141070) | AmazonUS (https://smile.amazon.com/Old-Man-Sea-Ernest-Hemingway-ebook/dp/B000FC0SH8) | AmazonUK (https://www.amazon.co.uk/Old-Man-Sea-Ernest-Hemingway-ebook/dp/B00FU7V8IG) | AmazonAU (https://www.amazon.com.au/Old-Man-Sea-Ernest-Hemingway-ebook/dp/B06Y15X1Z2/) | KoboUS (https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/the-old-man-and-the-sea-42) | KoboUK (https://www.kobo.com/gb/en/ebook/the-old-man-and-the-sea-42)

These two threads are related in an unexpected way. ---End Quote--- Description for the book Stories of Your Life and Others (from Kobo): ---Quote--- With his masterful first collection, multiple-award-winning author Ted Chiang deftly blends human emotion and scientific rationalism in eight remarkably diverse stories, all told in his trademark precise and evocative prose. From a soaring Babylonian tower that connects a flat Earth with the firmament above, to a world where angelic visitations are a wondrous and terrifying part of everyday life; from a neural modification that eliminates the appeal of physical beauty, to an alien language that challenges our very perception of time and reality. . . Chiang's rigorously imagined fantasia invites us to question our understanding of the universe and our place in it. ---End Quote--- *Elmer Gantry* by Sinclair Lewis University of Adelaide (https://ebooks.adelaide.edu.au/l/lewis/sinclair/elmer/) - free (ePub and Kindle downloads) | Amazon UK (https://www.amazon.co.uk/Elmer-Gantry-Sinclair-Lewis-ebook/dp/B003V8BTUI/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1517510910&sr=1-1&keywords=elmer+gantry) - £2.23 | Amazon US (https://smile.amazon.com/Elmer-Gantry-Sinclair-Lewis-ebook/dp/B003V8BTUI/ref=asap_bc?ie=UTF8) - $2.99 ---Quote (Originally by Goodreads)--- Universally recognized as a landmark in American literature, Elmer Gantry scandalized readers when it was first published, causing Sinclair Lewis to be "invited" to a jail cell in New Hampshire and to his own lynching in Virginia. His portrait of a golden-tongued evangelist who rises to power within his church--a saver of souls who lives a life of duplicity, sensuality, and ruthless self-indulgence--is also the record of a period, a reign of grotesque vulgarity, which but for Lewis would have left no trace of itself. Elmer Gantry has been called the greatest, most vital, and most penetrating study of hypocrisy that has been written since the works of Voltaire. ---End Quote--- *The Light Between Oceans * by M.L.
