Kitaptan nefret ettim ve bunun birçok nedeni var. Bunun en önemli nedeni, hikayedeki karakterlerin kitabı sıkıcı hale getirmesidir. Kitaptaki pek çok şey ilginç değildi. Kitap hakkında sevdiğim tek şey Santiago'nun hazinesini bulmaya yakın olduğu zamandı. Ama söylediğim her şeyden, kitabı beğenmedim.
I loved this book, but it's not for everyone. The giant vocabulary had me constantly reaching for a dictionary, but it was a great mental exercise for me. I enjoyed the challange, and the humor of the book.
The students in my fifth grade class either loved this book or didn't want to continue after about fifty pages. There is a science fiction feel to the book and I don't understand why this "place" should be so difficult to understand, especially since it's written for young teens. Even those who enjoyed the book didn't seem to have any idea of what happened at the end. Some beautiful writing, but the book doesn't seem fully realized. There are three narrators, which is both interesting, and sometimes unnecessarily confusing. I think it would be an interesting book to discuss in book club, so much is open to multiple interpretations, but I do think the book's mystery elements could have been more explicit.
I've only read the first couple chapters or so...but I'm finding it pretty disappointing. I bought it in the airport and thought it would be witty and clever, but it's really more harsh and crass. I would characterize it as pretty "masculine" reading because for some reason I think I would tolerate it more if I was a guy. Plus I'm not very familiar with modern Russian/Jewish cultural things, so I think there's a lot of the book I just don't get for lack of cultural understanding. I doubt I will finish it.
Another good book by John Eldredge. I really like his stuff.
