Güçlü okuma. Dini eğilimlere rağmen kışkırtıcı düşündüm.
Ne harika bir kitap! Anlatıcının bir veteriner olması ve beni içeri çekmek için yeterli olmasının yanı sıra, yazar sizi hem yaşlı bir adamın hayatına hem de gençliğiyle ilgili hatırlamalarına çekmek için inanılmaz bir iş çıkarıyor. Bu kitabı indiremedim - 2 gün içinde bitirdim! Şiddetle tavsiye ederim.
İlkokuldayken bu kitaba ve dizinin geri kalanına bayıldım. Kitapların sizin gibi yarattığı yanılsama, hikayenin ana kahramanıdır ve olasılıklar arasından seçim yaparak size hikaye üzerinde bir çeşit kontrol vermek onu harika bir okuma yapar.
This book is one in the My Story series. The books in this series are fictional diaries of young girls living during different events in world history. Thirteen-year-old Alice Paynton lives in the busy and crowded city of London in 1665. She lives with her father and his sister, her Aunt Nell, who has raised Alice since her mother died giving birth to her. Alice begins her diary writing of happy events, such as seeing plays at the theater. However, a dark shadow begins to fall over London as the bubonic plague spreads. Alice writes of her family's desperate struggle to survive as the disease takes over the city. This was an excellent book about a young girl's experiences during a horrifying period in history. I have not read many novels set during the Great Plague, so I found it very interesting. I recommend it to all readers of the My Story series.
http://nwhyte.livejournal.com/1946435.html This is surely one of the better Eighth Doctor Adventures, in a series that I was somewhat losing confidence in a few volumes back; by odd coincidence, it is set in 2012. We start off with a good chunk of the novel exploring what's happened to the Brigadier recently (last seen, from his own point of view anyway, in the very first Eighth Doctor novel, The Dying Days) and the peculiar dimensional opening between present day England and the magical parallel world of Avalon, where humans and the reptiles sometimes known as Silurians struggle for mastery of the land, and the British Army and two meddling Time Lords get caught up in the local power politics. The opening section is absolutely gripping; it settles down a bit as it goes on, but never lost my attention. The book also brings up the concept of a person becoming a Tardis, and vice versa, which is of course picked up and developed by Neil Gaiman in The Doctor's Wife. Depending on how one counts Minuet in Hell (and I'd rather not), this is actually the last appearance of the Brigadier in the Doctor's personal timeline, though he remains a constant point of reference and appears in several spinoff stories (including an SJA episode) right up until his departure is reported on-screen in last year's series. It's a good way for the character to bow out.
