    Harry Potter Rocks!

    That's a bold confession :) I've read them when an adult and I've skipped pages - it's a book for children after all and I lost interest or got frustrated with simplifications and language (here, though, I must say that I've read a translation, not an original). And the books got more boring...

    Star Wars: The Force awakens

    This is a very interesting idea; I think that with the latest Marvel's success in superheroes films, it is likely that Disney may decide to run something similar. Especially if the Force Awakens is a success. And I would like a new film every year only if they are more like the old trilogy, and...

    Star Wars: The Force awakens

    I actually didn't like the trailer, seemed to me rushed and not coherent. But what I like even less is that the film won't include the expanded universe.

    Should I buy it?

    He is a remarkably good author, wrote a lot of masterpieces, but I've never heard of the book you are thinking of buying. Maybe you should first try some of his better known stuff?

    Thanks for a thorough answer to my question. :)

    Books you'd never let your kids read....

    Have you read "Don Quichote" by Cervantes? He gets crazy by reading silly romances;) Seriously, from my own experience, I tend to appreciate those books which make me think and re-live them again and again for a week. And there are some books I haven't finished because they were too cruel, full...

    Isaac Bashevis Singer

    I have one book by this author, "The Magician of Lublin", but as I haven't read it yet, I cannot say much.:(

    Books you didn't finish

    I haven't finished "The Painted Bird" by Jerzy Kosiński and I have no intention whatsoever of doing so. It was simply too cruel.

    Paulo Coelho: The Alchemist

    Why don't you then elaborate on some advatages of this book I have overlooked?:)

    John Fowles: The French Lieutenant's Woman

    I wish I had watched the film, too. It would help me to organise all events in a sensible order. What now comes to my mind is that the author shows which possibilities literature can give and in order to that he uses them excessively (endings, inserting himself as a character) and makes fun of...

    John Fowles: The French Lieutenant's Woman

    Yes, I have read the book. And yes, I've already tried to use sites Ions listed. I am still confused.:confused:

    John Fowles: The French Lieutenant's Woman

    I need help. I have to write a 15-page essay on The French Lieutenant's Woman by John Fowles, but I cannot find any analyses of this novel. If anyone could give me any hints about what the author wanted to say, I would be very grateful.
