Nimi:
Veenmine

Autor: Jane Austen

Kuupäev: 17.01.2012

Lehekülgede arv:
214

Sisu: Jane Austeni (1775-1817) viimane romaan, mis ilmus alles pärast autori surma (1818).Romaani peategelane, armas ja arukas neiu inglise maa-aadli seast kohtab pärast mitmeid üksildasi aastaid taas oma noorusarmastust. Nüüd leiab ta oma õnne, mille ta seisuseuhkete ligimeste veenmisele järele andes oli hüljanud.


Arvamus: Mul on tunne, et tuleb rohkem selle aja kirjandusse investeerida! See oli üks äärmiselt nauditav lugemine, kuigi tänapäeva inimesele ehk kohati absurdne, suurepärase sisu, mõtte ja täiskasvanulikkusega. Meeldis see austus ja autunne, peene käitumine (ehkki see kõik tänapäevases kontekstis...). Tegelased eristusid.
Mõnus ühesõnaga! :)

Nimi:
A Discovery of Witches

Autor: Deborah Harkness

Kuupäev: 20.01.2012

Lehekülgede arv: 688

Sisu: Deep in the stacks of Oxford's Bodleian Library, young scholar Diana Bishop unwittingly calls up a bewitched alchemical manuscript in the course of her research. Descended from an old and distinguished line of witches, Diana wants nothing to do with sorcery; so after a furtive glance and a few notes, she banishes the book to the stacks. But her discovery sets a fantastical underworld stirring, and a horde of daemons, witches, and vampires soon descends upon the library. Diana has stumbled upon a coveted treasure lost for centuries-and she is the only creature who can break its spell.

Debut novelist Deborah Harkness has crafted a mesmerizing and addictive read, equal parts history and magic, romance and suspense. Diana is a bold heroine who meets her equal in vampire geneticist Matthew Clairmont, and gradually warms up to him as their alliance deepens into an intimacy that violates age-old taboos. This smart, sophisticated story harks back to the novels of Anne Rice, but it is as contemporary and sensual as the Twilight series-with an extra serving of historical realism.

Katkendid:

“Sorry, we've got ghosts.”

***

“The first requirement of war: allies must not kill each other.”

Arvamus: Väga mõnus raamat. Ei alahinda lugeja intelligentsi. xD
Lugu ise oli hea, aga kiskus natukene tobedaks. Very Happy Nii suur jama ühest inimesest.
Aga täitsa loeks järge. Very Happy

Spell Bound

Autor: Kelley Armstrong

Kuupäev: 22.01.2012

Lehekülgede arv: 339

Sisu: Savannah Levine is in terrible danger, and for once she’s powerless to help herself. At the conclusion of Waking the Witch, Savannah swore that she would give up her powers if it would help a young girl. Little did she know that someone would take her up on that promise.

And now, witch hunting assassins, necromancers, half-demons, and rogue witches all seem to be after her. The threat is not just for Savannah; every member of the Otherworld might be at risk. While most her fellow supernaturals are circling the wagons at a gathering of the council in Miami, Savannah is caught on the road, isolated from those who can protect her and unable to use her vast spell casting talent, the thing she counts on most. In a story that will change the shape of the Otherworld forever, Spell Bound gathers Elena, Clay, Paige, Lucas, Jamie, Hope, and others, who soon learn that the greatest threat to supernaturals just may come from within.

Katkendid:

“‎"If you want that kind of thing, call Nick. His advice is shit, but he really likes to give it.”

***

Hope kicked him in the back of the knees. As he dropped, the scarf went around his neck. She twisted it and jammed her foot into his back for leverage.
I raced after Karl and Benicio and caught up just as the guards flew into Jazś cell, the two men behind them.
"Hope!" Benicio said. "You don't want to do that."
"Oh, yes, I do," she said. Her face was twisted, eyes glowing, and at that moment, I didn't see sweet, quiet Hope. I saw the demon.

Arvamus: What is there to say...? LOVE! Very Happy

Nimi: Smart Swarm

Autor: Peter Miller

Lehekülgede arv: 269

Kuupäev: 28.01.2012

Sisu: What ants, bees, fish, and smart swarms can teach us about communication, organization, and decision-making

The modern world may be obsessed with speed and productivity, but twenty-first-century humans actually have much to learn from the ancient instincts of swarms. A fascinating new take on the concept of collective intelligence and its colorful manifestations in some of our most complex problems, The Smart Swarm introduces a compelling new understanding of the real experts on solving our own complex problems relating to such topics as business, politics, and technology.

Based on extensive globe-trotting research, this lively tour from National Geographic reporter Peter Miller introduces thriving throngs of ant colonies, which have inspired computer programs for streamlining factory processes, telephone networks, and truck routes; termites, used in recent studies for climate-control solutions; schools of fish, on which the U.S. military modeled a team of robots; and many other examples of the wisdom to be gleaned about the behavior of crowds-among critters and corporations alike.

In the tradition of James Surowiecki's The Wisdom of Crowds and the innovative works of Malcolm Gladwell, The Smart Swarm is an entertaining yet enlightening look at small-scale phenomena with big implications for us all.

Arvamus: Teistsugune, aga huvitav. Informeeriv. Inglise keele õpetaja andis lugeda... ja selles suhtes hea, et siis avastab muudsugust kirjandust ka vahepeal. Very Happy

Sisu: Hiking through the snow, holiday baking and playing board games by the fire – what’s not to love about an old-fashioned family Christmas?

Werewolves Elena Michaels and Clayton Danvers want to give their four-year-old twins, Kate and Logan, something their parents never had: a nice, normal holiday. No Pack responsibilities, no homicidal half-demons or power-hungry sorcerers to deal with – just the four of them, alone, at a chalet outside Ontario’s Algonquin Park.

Then a strange werewolf shows up at their door…while the town is buzzing about a young man, back from college, found half-eaten in the woods. And there’s the missing little girl …

With all the signs pointing to a rogue mutt with a taste for human flesh, Elena and Clay have no choice but to investigate. But are they the hunters – or the hunted?

Katkend:

"I wasn't completely convinced that my view was right. If I was, I would have fought for it."
"You did."
He lifted his brows. "If I really thought it was the absolute best thing for our kids, you'd had a battle on your hands. That was just a debate."
"With chair-throwing."
"Heated debate. Fights involve chair-breaking. Chair-throwing is getting your attention."
"Ah."

Arvamus: Nad teavad! Nad teavad! Jee! Very Happy
Nii kahju, et asi puhkusele läheb...
Hea!

Touch Of Power

Autor: Maria V Snyder

Kuupäev: 29.01.2012

Lehekülgede arv: 390

Sisu: Laying hands upon the injured and dying, Avry of Kazan assumes their wounds and diseases into herself. But rather than being honored for her skills, she is hunted. Healers like Avry are accused of spreading the plague that has decimated the Territories, leaving the survivors in a state of chaos.

Stressed and tired from hiding, Avry is abducted by a band of rogues who, shockingly, value her gift above the golden bounty offered for her capture. Their leader, an enigmatic captor-protector with powers of his own, is unequivocal in his demands: Avry must heal a plague-stricken prince—leader of a campaign against her people. As they traverse the daunting Nine Mountains, beset by mercenaries and magical dangers, Avry must decide who is worth healing and what is worth dying for. Because the price of peace may well be her life....

Katkendid:

“...things happen that are out of your control.'
Kerrick gave him a tight smile. 'You mean I'm not omnipotent?'
'You're not even semi-potent.'
'Is that even a word?' Kerrick asked.
'He probably means you're impotent,' I offered.

***

Belen's gaze turned inwards as if he considered my words. "There was a horrible cave-in before the plague." He took my hand. "Who did you lose?"
I jerked my hand back. "I didn't lose anyone. I know right where they are. They can both be found under millions of pounds of rock."

Arvamus: Armastan!

Sisu: Me? A Leader? Okay, I did prove that there's more to Inside than we knew. That a whole world exists beyond this cube we live in. And finding that led to a major rebellion - between worker scrubs like me and the snobby uppers who rule our world. Make that ruled. Because of me, we're free. I thought that meant I was off the hook, and could go off on my own again - while still touching base with Riley, of course. He's the one upper I think I can trust. But then we learned that there's outside and then there is Outside. And something from Outside wants In

Katkendid:

“Nothing says you care for me better than offering to torture my enemies.”
He grinned. "No sense doing things halfhearted. And to think, some girls have to endure listening to poetry.”

***

“Yes, I thought I'd try electrocution next. Since a bomb, a fire, Vinco's knife and a brief encounter with outer space didn't kill me.”

Sisu: "Ja kus su keha siis on?" nõudis ta."Seal, eemal," osutasin ma sinna, kus rabelevat ja sõimavat Jörgenit kinni hoiti.Vanake ei pööranud meile enam mingit tähelepanu ja hõljus üllatavalt kiiresti sinnapoole, kuhu ma just osutanud olin. Mõtlesin tol hetkel, et veel kuu aega tagasi poleks ma uskunudki, et minuga kunagi üldse midagi sellist juhtuda võiks - vaimud, Kuuhundid, Valvurid, Ülemiste Vanake, kuulsuste sarnased golemid... Jube! Kuid nüüd olin ma ka ise selle maailma liige. Tagasiteed polnud ja see tundus isegi kuidagi loomulik.

Raamatu “Iseenda laps” kangelanna, tavaline Tallinna koolitüdruk Annika seisab ühel hommikul kummaliste valikute ees. Enesele ootamatult naaseb ta oma sünnieelsesse aega, armub siniste juustega noormehesse, kes osutub vaimuks, võitleb müstiliste olenditega ning tema missiooniks saab päästa maailm läbi selle, et sünnitada ?. iseennast.

Arvamus: Eesti Christopher Paolini?
Ma olin tõesti... hämmingus. Kirjutamine oli hea. Lugu oli... super. Kõik need ühendatud punktid ja et üks 13aastamne sellisele mõttele isegi tulla võib?!
Wow.
Ainult et keeleline korrektuur oli... HALB. Kirjavahemärgid olid vahepeal rämedalt valesti, sõnadest oli puudu tähti ja üks lõik oli endale keset lauset enteri vahele saanud.
Kuid see kõik on lugu hinnates möödavaadatav.
Super!

Kellele lüüakse hingekella

Lehekülgede arv: 500

Sisu: Ükski inimene ei ole Saar, täiesti omaette:
iga inimene on tükk Mandrist, osa Maismaast;
kui Meri Mullakamaka minema uhub, jääb
Euroopa väiksemaks, samuti ka siis,
kui ta Maanina upitab, samuti ka siis, kui ta
sinu sõprade või sinu enda Lossi purustab;
iga inimese surm kahandab mind, sest mina
kuulun Inimkonda; ja seepärast ära iialgi
päri, kellele lüüakse hingekella: seda
lüüakse sinule.

Arvamus: Natukene igavavõitu kirjeldus, hea sisu. Va see armastuslugu. No fools in love nh. Vbl see kunagi nii käiski, aga jah...
Pilaril oli see mõnus taust ja üleüldse need inimesed seal... Jeah. Very Happy

Sisu: I've lost it. The only thing in the world I wasn't supposed to lose. My engagement ring. It's been in Magnus's family for three generations. And now, the very same day his parents are coming, I've lost it. The very same day. Do not hyperventilate Poppy. Stay positive!!

Poppy Wyatt has never felt luckier. She is about to marry the ideal man, Magnus Tavish, but in one afternoon her 'happy ever after' begins to fall apart. Not only has she lost her engagement ring but in the panic that followed, she has now lost her phone. As she paces shakily round the hotel foyer she spots an abandoned phone in a bin. Finders keepers! Now she can leave a number for the hotel to contact her when they find her ring. Perfect!

Well, perfect except the phone's owner, businessman Sam Roxton doesn't agree. He wants his phone back and doesn't appreciate Poppy reading all his messages and wading into his personal life.

What ensues is a hilarious and unpredictable turn of events as Poppy and Sam increasingly upend each other's lives through emails and text messages. As Poppy juggles wedding preparations, mysterious phone calls and hiding her left hand from Magnus and his parents... she soon realises that she is in for the biggest surprise of her life.

Arvamus:

Sisu: Suurejooneline seiklusromaan armastusest ja kättemaksust, alatusest ja üllusest. Noor meremees Edmond Dantes satub end tema sõpradeks nimetanud meeste alatute sepitsuste tõttu Iffi kindluse vangitorni. Seal tutvub ta kaasvangi abee Fariaga, kes avaldab talle rikkaliku aarde saladuse. Tal õnnestub põgeneda, aare leida ning temast saab krahv Monte-Cristo, mees, kelle ainsaks sihiks on kättemaks. Paraku võib viimane olla aga kahe teraga mõõk ja haavata ka selle kättemaksjat ennast.

Katkend:


"Ma pole iial kuulnud, et surnud oleksid tuhande aasta jooksul nii palju nalja teinud kui elavad ühe päevaga."

Kaootiline kombinatsioon Jungi, Nietzsche ja budismi teooriatest on läbi Hesse sule omandanud meisterliku ja erudeeritud võrgustiku eksistentsiaalsetest arutlustest ja probleemidest.

The Help

Autor: Kathryn Stockett

Kuupäev: 10.03.2012

Lehekülgede arv: 451

Sisu: Three ordinary women are about to take one extraordinary step.

Twenty-two-year-old Skeeter has just returned home after graduating from Ole Miss. She may have a degree, but it is 1962, Mississippi, and her mother will not be happy till Skeeter has a ring on her finger. Skeeter would normally find solace with her beloved maid Constantine, the woman who raised her, but Constantine has disappeared and no one will tell Skeeter where she has gone.

Aibileen is a black maid, a wise, regal woman raising her seventeenth white child. Something has shifted inside her after the loss of her own son, who died while his bosses looked the other way. She is devoted to the little girl she looks after, though she knows both their hearts may be broken.

Minny, Aibileen's best friend, is short, fat, and perhaps the sassiest woman in Mississippi. She can cook like nobody's business, but she can't mind her tongue, so she's lost yet another job. Minny finally finds a position working for someone too new to town to know her reputation. But her new boss has secrets of her own.

Seemingly as different from one another as can be, these women will nonetheless come together for a clandestine project that will put them all at risk. And why? Because they are suffocating within the lines that define their town and their times. And sometimes lines are made to be crossed.

Katkendid:

Only two bathrooms, which is a relief cause I worked in houses where they was five or six. Take a whole day just to clean toilets.

***

THE NEXT EVENING, I'm working upstairs in my room, banging the keys on my Corona. Suddenly I hear Mother hit the stairs running. In two seconds she's made it in my room. "Eugenia!" she whispers.
I stand so fast my chair teeters, trying to guard the contents of my typewriter. "Yes ma'am?"
"Now don't panic but there is a man--a very tall man--downstairs to see you."

***

"They shot him in the back like a dog!"
"Jessup." Deacon raise his hand. "Tonight is for prayer. For the family. For the lawyers on the case. I understand your anger, but, son--"
"Prayer? You mean y'all just gonna sit around and pray about it?"
He look around at all a us in our chairs.
"Y'all think prayer's going to keep white people from killing us?"

***

"You get on out a here, you fool!" I yell. But the man doesn't move. I take a few steps closer. And then so does he and I hear myself praying, Lord protect me from this naked white man . . .

***


"Don't you know? The League members can't stand Skeeter Phelan anymore."
My hands knuckle into fists. "You ever met her?"
"Oh, I heard all about it at Fanny Mae's setting under the heating hood. They said she's the biggest embarrassment this town's ever seen. Said she was the one who put all those toilets on Hilly Holbrook's front yard. Remember that picture that showed up in the paper a few months ago?"
I grind my teeth together to keep my real words in. "I said, have you ever met her?"
"Well, no. But if all those girls don't like her, then she must be . . . well she . . ." Her words trail off like it's just hitting her what she's saying.

***

"Miss Celia, now what is going on in here?" I mean, she's got stockings dangling from chairs, pocketbooks on the floor, enough costume jewelry for a whole family of hookers.

***

"You shut your mouth, Sugar." I yanked her to the corner. "Don't you never let me hear you talking bad about the lady who put food in your mouth, clothes on your back! You hear me?"
Sugar, she nodded and I went back to my dishes, but I heard her muttering. "You do it, all the time."
I whipped around and put my finger in her face. "I got a right to. I earn it every day working for that crazy fool."

***

I see her on the other side of the glass and then I see the axe. I get a little spooked because nobody likes to see a crazy lady with an axe in her hand.

***

On my other side is damn Leslie Fullerbean and her cloud of hairspray. She must risk her life every time she lights a cigarette. I wonder, if I pushed the top of her head, would aerosol spray out of her mouth.

***

"What you learn today?" I ask even though she ain't in real school, just the pretend kind. Other day, when I ask her, she say, "Pilgrims. They came over and nothing would grow so they ate the Indians."

***

"Why is she frowning like that on tee-vee?" Miss Leefolt whine at the box. "Joline!" She lean forward and tap-tap-tap her finger on Miss Joline's forehead. "Don't frown! You don't look cute that way!“

Arvamus: Meeldis. Raamat polnud OMFG-kui-hea!, aga lugu oli. Peategelased olid tugevad naised (ja mitte selles karmi inimese mõistes, vaid oma julguses ja ettevõtlikkuses korrale vastu astuda). Meeldis, et Aibileeni ja Minny vaatevinklist oli kirjutatud vigases inglise keeles. Loodan ainult, et see külge ei jäänud. Very Happy

Sisu:
1990. aastate keskpaik. Uusi ärisid, firmasid, poode ja kaubamaju tekib ning kaob märkimisväärse hooga, elu edeneb, rikastumine ja vaesumine käib ülikiiresti. Neil tormilistel aegadel ristuvadki eduka varga Viktori ja väikest kaubamaja pidava Marina teed ning edasi arenevad sündmused juba plahvatuslikult.

Arvamus: Kohati oma otsekohesusega ehmatav ja teisalt lihtne mõnus kirjutamine. Lugemine oli nauding. Tegelased olid usutavad nii oma pahede kui ka heade külgedega. Panid endast hoolima. Hea!

Kuristik Rukkis

Autor: J.D. Salinger

Kuupäev:
27.03.2012

Lehekülgede arv: 182

Sisu: «Kuristik rukkis» on oma sündmustiku poolest lihtne, ainult mõnda argielu päeva haarav lühiromaan, kuueteistkümneaastase Holden Caulfieldi monoloog, tema siiras pihtimus enesest ja elust, mis teda ümbritseb.
Et see näiliselt vähenõudlik teos aga ometi laialdast huvi äratas, seletub sellega, et huumor ja traagika, lapselik-poeetiline tundemaailm ning noorukit masendav vaimne tühjus ja jõhkrus liituvad teoses ameerika elulaadi veenvaks läbivalgustuseks.

Arvamus: Issand. Ma ei mäleta, millal viimati ma raamatut lugedes niimoodi piinelnud oleksin. Muidugi oleksin ma mitte kohustusliku kirjanduse pooleli ka jätnud, sellega nii teha ei saanud. Hea asi, et ta nii lühike oli. See tegelane oli kuidagi nii võlts ja wannabe ja enda arust täiega äge, kui ta tegelikult oli üks suur pubekas ja äärmiselt vastutustundetu. Romaani jooksul ei toimu temas mingit arengut ja tema lebotamine, liigne kriitilisus kaasinimeste osas, suitsetamine jms olid uskumatult igavad. Kui talle üritatigi hinge sisse panna, mõjus see pingutatuna.
Noorte elu ja mida kõike veel, aga ma ei mõista, mis selle raamatu veel praegugi nii eriliseks teeb.
Ja Holdenist ei suuda ma ka eriti hoolida.

Sisu: Oli 2003. aasta. Põhjamaa serval pesitsevas väikeses Eestis puhusid muutuste tuuled: tuli otsustada, kas liituda Euroopa rahvastega. Kohale oli jõudnud ka tarbimishulluse ja kinnisvarapalaviku torm. Skandinaavia rahameeste toel tõotas see tõmmata lina üle sotsialistliku majanduse laiba ning muuta kõik säravaks ja uueks.

Sellal, kui Eesti vaagis oma tulevikku sädeleva lääne vastse liikmena, maadlesin mina enda saatusega. Põhja-Euroopa oli mind peibutanud kalliskiviliku veetlusega, ent nüüd pidin tegelema tehtud otsuse tagajärgedega. Olin kui kits kahe heinakuhja vahel: mind sikutasid edasi-tagasi mu suure ameerika-itaalia perekonna vajadused ja maa, mille „metsarahvaga” oli keeruline sõbruneda. Päevad kahanesid rusuvalt lühikeseks ja asendusid põhjamaiste öödega ning mu peas kestis tormiline vaidlus saatuse ja vaba tahte vahel. Olin 23, värske abikaasa, peatne isa. Kas seda kõike olingi ma tahtnud?

Katkend: Helina ja tema esiklapse Keni vanusevahe oli 20 aastat. Sama kehtis Helina ja tema ema Randi ning Epu ja tema ema Aime kohta. Eestlastel kulus paljunemiseks tavaliselt kaks aastakümmet.

Arvamus: Nii. Mõnus oli eestlastest (ja järjele saamisest) lugeda. Savisaare kohta sain ka targemaks. Very Happy Hoomor oli asja juures mõnusaim osa! Very Happy
Tahaks nüüd esimese osa ka ära lugeda... Very Happy

Sisu: After three years in prison, Shadow has done his time. But as the days, then the hours, then the minutes, then the seconds until his release tick away, he can feel a storm building. Two days before he gets out, his wife Laura dies in a mysterious car crash, in apparently adulterous circumstances. Dazed, Shadow travels home, only to encounter the bizarre Mr. Wednesday claiming to be a refugee from a distant war, a former god and the king of America. Together they embark on a very strange journey across the States, along the way solving the murders which have occurred every winter in one small American town. But they are being pursued by someone with whom Shadow must make his peace... Disturbing, gripping and profoundly strange, Neil Gaiman's epic new novel sees him on the road to finding the soul of America.

Katkendid:

“The TV's the altar. I'm what people are sacrificing to.'
What do they sacrifice?' asked Shadow.
Their time, mostly,' said Lucy. 'Sometimes each other.”

***

“I think there are several aspects of our marraige we're going to have to work on."
"Babes," he told her. "You're dead."
"That's one of those aspects, obviously.”

Arvamus: Mulle nii meeldib Gaimani jutt ja ma nii lootsin, et ma sellest raamatust vaimustuses oleksin. Aga reaalsus on, et ma tean, millest see raamat rääkis, aga ei mõista seda. Ja sellest on nii paganama kahju.

Sisu: It all begins with a stupid question:

Are you a Global Vagabond?

No, but 18-year-old Bria Sandoval wants to be. In a quest for independence, her neglected art, and no-strings-attached hookups, she signs up for a guided tour of Central America—the wrong one. Middle-aged tourists with fanny packs are hardly the key to self-rediscovery. When Bria meets Rowan, devoted backpacker and dive instructor, and his outspokenly humanitarian sister Starling, she seizes the chance to ditch her group and join them off the beaten path.

Bria's a good girl trying to go bad. Rowan's a bad boy trying to stay good. As they travel across a panorama of Mayan villages, remote Belizean islands, and hostels plagued with jungle beasties, they discover what they've got in common: both seek to leave behind the old versions of themselves. And the secret to escaping the past, Rowan’s found, is to keep moving forward.

But Bria comes to realize she can't run forever, no matter what Rowan says. If she ever wants the courage to fall for someone worthwhile, she has to start looking back.

Kirsten Hubbard lends her artistry to this ultimate backpacker novel, weaving her drawings into the text. Her career as a travel writer and her experiences as a real-life vagabond backpacking Central America are deeply seeded in this inspiring story.

Katkendid:

Impulsive isn’t something you choose. It’s something you are.

***

Envy is when you want what someone else has. Jealousy’s when you also don’t want them to have it.

***

“Stop right there. You don’t have to make excuses for your experiences—how can you? They already happened. And you don’t have to dwell on them either. Just look to the future.
Like we were talking about. You can’t control the past, but you can control where you go next.”

***

Prices are relative. So is poverty. So is happiness.

***

Nocturnal naked piggyback rides down the hallway*
*I was not involved.

***

“The thing is,” I begin, “not everyone can travel like you do, Rowan.”
“Sure they can—as long as they have the money. They just need to open their minds.”
“But most people aren’t raised to think this kind of travel’s an option. Like me—I just fell into it accidentally.”
“Best bag you ever lost.”
I smile.

Arvamus: Oeh... üle tüki aja selline mõnus noortest ja noorte probleemidest rääkiv raamat, mis ei tekitanud tahtmist silmi kinni pigistada ja teeselda, et sa sellest raamatust kuulnudki pole. Aus, mitmekülgne kirjeldus... Mulle meeldis. :) Kõik see, kuidas Bria kõigest üle sai ja endas uue poole avastas ja... reaalne kuidagi. Ja inspireeriv. Paganama inspireeriv.

„Appikene! Ära seda nüüd küll tee!!! Jumala eest! Ta peksab su läbi, hoiab sind päevad otsa köögis kinni ja võtab lahutusel lapsed käest!”
Uskuge või mitte, aga pidin seda enne abiellumist rohkem kui ühe heatahtliku inimese suust kuulma. Lõpuks ei osanud ma enam muud moodi reageerida kui vaid malbe naeratusega.
Sisemuses aga kriipis mõte – mis õigusega te minu abielu lahutate, enne kui see pole veel alanudki?
Olen eestlane, aga moslem. Või kas peangi siia „aga” vahele panema? Olen moslem juba üheksandat aastat, abielus viiendat. Pean seda täpsustama, sest enamasti arvatakse, et olen moslem oma marokolasest mehe pärast.
Inimese identiteeti vormivad ühtviisi nii ta millegi kõrgema poole püüdlev hing kui ka maine kogemus. Minu kogemus, mida tahaksin teiega jagada, on mind viinud läbi lapsepõlve eneseotsingu Nõukogude Eestis, araabia keele ja islamoloogia õpingute Pariisis, abiellumise Kuveidis, otse sooja Maroko südamesse. See kõik on osa minust: olen eestlane ja moslem.

Arvamus:
Oh. Nii meeldis jälle. Paras kultuuri¹okk. Ja andis sellele moslemivärgile täitsa uue vaatenurga. :)

Sisu: In The Calling, the sizzling second book in the Darkness Rising trilogy, New York Times bestselling author Kelley Armstrong pumps up the romance, danger, and suspense that left readers of The Gathering clamoring for more.

Maya Delaney’s paw-print birthmark is the sign of what she truly is—a skin-walker. She can run faster, climb higher, and see better than nearly anyone else. Experiencing intense connections with the animals that roam the woods outside her home, Maya knows it’s only a matter of time before she’s able to Shift and become one of them. And she believes there may be others in her small town with surprising talents.

Now, Maya and her friends have been forced to flee from their homes during a forest fire they suspect was deliberately set. Then they’re kidnapped, and after a chilling helicopter crash, they find themselves in the Vancouver Island wilderness with nothing but their extraordinary abilities to help them get back home. Plentiful action and romance in this second installment in the Darkness Rising series will keep readers enthralled to the very last page!

Katkendid: “Mermaids and sirens weren’t on the list,” Daniel said. “Maya’s point is that Hayley, Nicole, and Serena shared common characteristics, which probably means they’re the same type, and it has something to do with singing and swimming.”
“And being pretty,” Hayley said.
“That’s not a superpower,” Sam muttered.

***

I’d always thought of myself as an open-minded person. I had no patience with anyone who put down other kids because of their race, religion, or sexuality. But that’s just one kind of open-mindedness. There’s another kind, too, the kind that’s willing to see people for who they really are and admit when you were wrong about them.

***

The next vehicle didn’t come for a long time. It was a car full of guys not much older than us.“Quick, girls,” Corey said. “Give them some incentive. Take off your—” He glanced at Sam. “Maya, take off your shirt.”

***

She knew the story—those kids had died in a crash on the other end of the island. DNA said it was the missing kids and everyone who watched CSI knew DNA never lied.

***

“The fridge is practically bare,” Sam said. “Grocery shopping is apparently the last thing on your mom’s mind."
"I’m sure there’s more in the cupboards. I just stopped at the peanut butter.”

***

“Okay, obviously between the fire and the crash, Mom hasn’t come home. But she didn’t take my laptop. She told me to pack it. I didn’t.”
“Why?” Sam said.
“Because my homework’s on it,” he said, in a tone that implied this was a stupid question. “Laptop perishes in the fire? I get a free pass on every assignment.”

***

“I saw you fall.”
“The fall isn’t the problem. It’s the sudden stop at the end."

***

"Now, Maya, if you can stop gaping at Rafe for a few minutes, we really should come up with a plan.”
I glared at her. “I spent three days thinking I’d watched him fall to his death.”
“Leave her alone, Sam,” Daniel murmured. “This isn’t the time.”
“I’m just saying it’s not the time for that either."

Arvamus: Algus oli nagu ta oli. Very Happy Meenutasin tegelasi. Lõpuks läks põnevaks - saavad järgmises raamatus Chloe ja teistega kokku? Very Happy

Sisu:
The Mortal War is over, and Clary Fray is back home in New York, excited about all the possibilities before her. She's training to become a Shadowhunter and to use her unique power. Her mother is getting married to the love of her life. Downworlders and Shadowhunters are at peace at last. And—most important of all—Clary can finally call Jace her boyfriend.

But nothing comes without a price.

Someone is murdering the Shadowhunters who used to be in Valentine’s Circle, provoking tensions between Downworlders and Shadowhunters that could lead to a second bloody war. Clary’s best friend, Simon, can’t help her. His mother just found out he’s a vampire and now he’s homeless. Everywhere he turns, someone wants him on their side—along with the power of the curse wrecking his life. And they’re willing to do anything to get what they want. At the same time he’s dating two beautiful, dangerous girls—neither of whom knows about the other.

When Jace begins to pull away from Clary without explaining why, she is forced to delve into the heart of a mystery whose solution reveals her worst nightmare: She herself has set in motion a terrible chain of events that could lead to her losing everything she loves. Even Jace.

Love. Blood. Betrayal. Revenge. The stakes are higher than ever in City of Fallen Angels.

Katkendid:

“You're the first Shadowhunter I've ever met."
“That’s too bad,” said Jace, “since all the others you meet from now on will be a terrible letdown.”

***

“You know, some people think Shadowhunters are just myths. Like mummies and genies." Kyle grinned at Jace. "Can you grant wishes?"
"That depends," he said. "Do you wish to be punched in the face?”

***

“It’s fascinating. You know all these words, and they’re all English, but when you string them together into sentences, they just don’t make any sense.”

***

“Hey," said Jace. who was sitting on an overturned speaker, looking at his cellphone, "do you want to see a photo of Alec and Magnus in Berlin?"
"Not really," said Simon.
"Magnus is wearing lederhosen."
"And yet, still no.”

***

“Alec keeps sending me annoying photos. Lots of captions like Wish you were here, except not really.”

***

“Medium clever,” Simon acknowledged. “Like a cross between George Clooney in Ocean’s Eleven and those MythBusters guys, but, you know, better-looking.”
“I’m always so glad I have no idea what you’re vacantly chattering about,” said Jace. “It fills me with a sense of peace and well-being.

***

But Magnus, he thought. You never told me. Never warned me it would be like this, that I would wake up one day and realize that I was going somewhere you couldn't follow. That we are essentially not the same. There's no "till death do us apart" for those who never die.

Arvamus:
Oeh. Ma arvan, et Alec saab immortaliks kuidagi. Mõte temast ja Magnusest HEAta on peaaegu et väljakannatamatu. Very Happy Iseenesest päris hea, aga jace, uh. -.-

Sisu: „See on nii romantiline!” Mitu inimest on mu käsikirja kohta kasutanud just seda fraasi ja neil on õigus: noor kriisis ameeriklane armub põnevasse eestlannast ajakirjanikku ning alustab teekonda, mis taastab noormehe usu endasse ja maailma. Nõus. See on romantiline.

Aga see teekond ei olnud lihtne. Välismaalane saabub keset kõige pimedamat talve ja peab jääma ellu sel kõige õnnetuma saatusega Skandinaaviamaal, kus iga perekonda kummitavad minevikuõudused, kus inimesed söövad verest tehtud vorste ja tarretiseks keedetud lihatükke, joovad sooja leivajooki, ning hilinemise eest võib neid tabada surmanuhtlus.

Ma hakkasin seda maad armastama tema ilus ja inetuses, ja armastasin edasi ka neil hetkedel, kui mind maale tagasi lasta ei tahetud.

Looking for Alaska

Autor: John Green

Kuupäev: 24.04.2012

Lehekülgede arv:
272

Sisu:
A deeply affecting coming-of-age story, Looking for Alaska traces the journey of Miles Halter, a misfit Florida teenager who leaves the safety of home for a boarding school in Alabama and a chance to explore the "Great Perhaps." Debut novelist and NPR commentator Green perfectly captures the intensity of feeling and despair that defines adolescence in this hip, shocking, and emotionally charged work of fiction.

Miles has a quirky interest in famous people's last words, especially François Rabelais's final statement, "I go to seek a Great Perhaps." Determined not to wait for death to begin a similar quest, Miles convinces his parents to let him leave home. Once settled at Culver Creek Preparatory School, he befriends a couple of equally gifted outcasts: his roommate Chip―commonly known as the Colonel—who has a predilection for memorizing long, alphabetical lists for fun; and the beautiful and unpredictable Alaska, whom Miles comes to adore.

The kids grow closer as they make their way through a school year filled with contraband, tests, pranks, breakups, and revelations about family and life. But as the story hurtles toward its shattering climax, chapter headings like "forty-six days before" and "the last day" portend a tragic event―one that will change Miles forever and lead him to new conclusions about the value of his cherished "Great Perhaps."(

Katkendid:

And then I saw the Colonel, his knees tucked into his chest, lying on his side on the bleachers, Madame O'Malley sitting next to him, reaching toward his shoulder but not actually touching it. The Colonel was screaming. He would inhale, and then scream. Inhale. Scream. Inhale. Scream. I thought, at first, that it was only yelling. But after a few breaths, I noticed a rhythm. And after a few more, I realized that the Colonel was saying words. He was screaming, "I'm so sorry."

***

"I walked to Montevallo."
"Forty miles?!"
"Forty-two," he corrected me. "Well. Forty-two there. Forty-two back. Eighty-two miles. No. Eighty-four. Yes. Eighty-four miles in forty-five hours."
"What the hell's in Montevallo?" I asked.
"Not much. I just walked till I got too cold, and then I turned around."

***

The Colonel's hand was so little, and I grabbed it tight, his cold seeping into me and my warmth into him. "I memorized the populations," he said.
"Uzbekistan."
"Twenty-four million seven hundred fifty-five thousand five hundred and nineteen."
"Cameroon," I said, but it was too late. He was asleep, his hand limp in mine.

With Felipe de Castro, the Vampire King of Louisiana (and Arkansas and Nevada), in town, it’s the worst possible time for a body to show up in Eric Northman’s front yard—especially the body of a woman whose blood he just drank.
Now, it’s up to Sookie and Bill, the official Area Five investigator, to solve the murder. Sookie thinks that, at least this time, the dead girl’s fate has nothing to do with her. But she is wrong. She has an enemy, one far more devious than she would ever suspect, who’s out to make Sookie’s world come crashing down.

Katkendid:


Dermot lived with me, too, but Dermot was more modest in his habits …maybe because I’d told him how I felt about bare-assed relatives.

***

“Eric will survive your absence,” Bill said. If he’d extended that sentence, I was pretty sure the ending would have been, “But you may not survive your presence.”

***

Pam said, “Sookie, I brought you something, too. I never thought I’d want to spend time with a human, but you’re more tolerable than most. I hope no one hurts you on your birthday.” As birthday wishes went, that kind of sucked, but it was genuine Pam.

***

“So he knew I had this thing. This magic thing that I used on you. And I guess he thought it was kind of a test of my love.”
“He expected you to use it to save him from this marriage,” Sam said slowly.
“Yeah. Evidently.” And I sighed. “And I kind of expected him to tell her to go to Hell. I guess I thought of it as a test of his love.”
