BOOKZ

I decided to photograph my favourite books. I usually like books about children a/o unusual people. Part 1.
''The story is written in the first-person perspective of Christopher John Francis Boone, a 15-year-old boy who describes himself as ‘a mathematician with some behavioral difficulties’ living in Swindon, Wiltshire.''
''When God Was a Rabbit follows the life of a young girl – Eleanor Maud (Elly for short) – as she grows up first in Essex, then Cornwall, then New York and the various characters she meets and befriends along the way. The book is named after God, a pet rabbit given to Elly by her brother who is a constant companion during her childhood. Overall it is a love story surrounding the central characters, Elly, her brother and their extended circle of family and friends.''
''Lesley Arfin is breaking the mould with her memoir Dear Diary – expanded from a column in which she revisits entries in her teenage diary, then hits up her grade-school tormentors with questions about why they were bitches.''
''The book is also notable for its writing style. The narrative is highly subjective as Humbert draws on his fragmented memories, employing a sophisticated prose style, while attempting to gain the reader's sympathy through his sincerity and melancholy, although near the end of the story Humbert refers to himself as a "maniac" who "deprived" Dolores "of her childhood", and he shortly thereafter states "the most miserable of family lives was better than the parody of incest" in which they were involved.''

P.S. Do you have any books on you're mind that you think that I would like. Let me hear about them!

  10. The first book is one of my favorite books, too.
    "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" books by Jeff Kinney are really good. Maybe something for you?

    lol funny that all the books people recommended are basically the typical high school kid's go to-books.
    Not that they're bad, but probably nothing new to anyone.

    And maybe I'm bringing nothing new to table either, but I'd recommend John Green's books.

    Saattaisit mahdollisesti pitää Milan Kunderan kirjoista - hällä on muitakin teoksia kuin Olemisen sietämätön keveys. Myös Kazuo Ishiguron Ole luonani aina voisi upota.
