I borrowed this from Clementi Public Library in Singapore because after Bersih 2.0, I was looking for stuff by A. Samad Said and this was all they had. It was a disappointment - a slow-moving story with an extremely anticlimactic and predictable ending. Yes, I know it's a children's book, and if I had encountered this in Standard Six or Form One and not knowing it was by a "famous" author I would have given up after the first ten pages. Guess I'll have to look harder to locate copies of his better works in Singapore.
Teen book discussion Dec. 2009
During my freshman year of college, I was in a super crazy course. We basically read everything ever written. It was so intense, in fact, that all our classes were actually held in the dorm itself (there was, you see, no escape). One of our exams was the infamous twenty-four hour final, in which we were given a day to write three papers. Why am I telling you this? Obviously I want you to feel bad for me. I also want you to understand my predicament when given the test and the play on the same day. The play won. It's awesome.
This is written twenty years ago and still the medical profession lags way behind Bernie. He describes the inception of his Cancer self-help group ECaP. He introduces the "exceptional patient" who refuse to accept defeat and teach that mind can dramatically affect the body. Just the descriptions of patients who are supposed to die and don't is worth the read. But not all patients experience "self-induced healing" yet the goal for one and all is health and unconditional love of self. Bernie states "If you are suffering from some life-threatening disease, the change I'm talking about may save your life or prolong it well past medical expectations....If you have a minor disorder, or if you're not sick but now really enjoying life, the principles I've learned from exceptional patients can bring you joy and help you avoid illness in the future."
A solid read -- no American Psycho, but decent enough, none the less. . .
