I am giving away books!!! – The real thing

21 09 2012
Ok, I’ll make this English version only since all the books are in English and it’s easier πŸ™‚

After debating with myself, I gathered 6 books to give away. Yes, to give. Away. For nothing. Well, almost nothing.

In order to win a book, just comment here with the following:

– book you want (obviously, doooh)
– last book read and thoughts on it (loved it, hated it, pissed you off … I wanna know and I wanna know why).

Please use a valid email address so I can contact you in case the book is yours πŸ™‚

This will go on until the 28th of September. On the 29th I will use random.org (hopefully) to pick up the winners.

So, the books are:

1. Doctor Zhivago – Boris Pasternak
2. Left to Tell – Immaculee Ilibagiza
3. The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night Time – Mark Haddon
4. Eat, Pray, Love – Elizabeth Gilbert
5. The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas – John Boyne
6. Their Darkest Hour – Laurence Rees

I have to add that the books are in good condition, though not all of them were bough as new. I hope they will find new, happy homes.

Enjoy πŸ˜‰

Doctor Zhivago – Boris Pasternak, pentru asta optez.
Ultima carte citita e Orbirea de Elias Canetti, o carte cu si despre obsesii intr-o lume conturata anticipativ pentru dezastrul ce va fi cuprinzand intreaga Europa si mai mult decat atat, in perioada interbelica. De citit, de luat aminte asupra ororilor ce au navalit peste oameni cuprinsi in mase de ratiuni demente, manipulatorii, pentru a nu mai permite si pe viitor astfel de iesiri.
zi frumoasa-ti doresc, Liana! πŸ™‚

Optez pentru “Left to tell- Immaculee Ilibagiza”.
Ultima carte citita a fost “Curtezana” de Colette. Este un roman care m-a vrajit datorita complexitatii personajului principal: Lea este o femeie “trecuta”, dar personalitatea ei compenseaza pe deplin acest defect. Este eleganta, seducatoare, inteligenta, iar aceste atribute ii garanteaza succesul. Pentru mine, Lea a fost o sursa de inspiratie, o dovada ca feminitatea nu tine cont de varsta.

The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas – John Boyne – want! πŸ˜€

Ultima carte citita e de fapt o serie foarte faina de comics, Nemi – un personaj goth, intunecat, rock, care trece prin viata si se lupta cu stereotipizarea. Bine-nteles, are o doza de sarcasm si je m’en fiche-ism care nu te lasa indiferent. Traducerea in engleza e putin dubioasa, dar benzile desenate si mesajele lor te incanta.

Eat, Pray, Love – Elizabeth Gilbert (pt. ca sunt probabil singura persoana de pe lumea asta care n’a citit’o)
Azi/maine termin The God of Small Things, de Arundhati Roy, cea mai faina carte pe care am pus mana in ultimele luni. Despre niste gemeni indieni si o poveste tragica, dar asa de frumos scrisa incat nu’ti mai vine sa o lasi din mana (la modul ca era sa pierd de nu stiu cate ori statia la care trebuia sa cobor, asa de captivata am fost!). Si ce e fain e ca incepe cumva cu sfarsitul, deci stii de la bun inceput cam ce o sa se intample, desi detaliile le afli abia mai tarziu, dar asta nu te opreste in nici un fel sa vrei sa o citesti cu maxima atentie.

Mi-as dori “Their Darkest Hour” – Laurence Rees.
Ultima carte citita de mine este “The help” – Kathryn Stockett. Mi-a placut destul de mult. Pe alocuri stereotipica, iti da totusi o idee despre cum era viata pentru servitoarele negrese intr-un stat american rasist prin anii ’60. Mi s-a parut interesant ca este scrisa din perspectiva a trei femei foarte diferite.

Uuuuu books!
‘The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night Time’ (Mark Haddon) for me, please!
Last book read – ‘An Unsuitable Job for a Woman’, by P.D. James. Sunt fan mystery fiction cam de cand am citit ‘Misterul camerei galbene’ (Gaston Leroux), dar nu gasesc asa usor ceva decent de digerat din genul in cauza. Insa femeia asta, P.D. James zic, scrie frumos rau; simplut la modul general (cum ar trebui sa fie mystery fiction in my opinion), cu outbursts of long amazingly descriptive phrases. Story-ul e foarte bine pus la punct, iar personajul principal e o ‘pustoaica’ de 22 de ani (fara bani but with principles, and pretty damn witty) care mosteneste o agentie de detectivi. Tipa nu se potriveste deloc cu decorul din Cambridge, unde ajunge sa investigate a case of a student la universitatea cu acelasi nume. Long story short, not a lot of things to hate about this book, mai ales ca incepe cu personajul principal being late for work pentru ca the Bakerloo Line broke down πŸ™‚
