Book Review: Narnia – C.S. Lewis and His World (David Barratt)

cslewisandhisworld

Oftentimes I felt the author fanboyed over C.S. Lewis a lot in this book, that amidst the descriptions on the works and life of the renowned creator of Narnia (which were quite entertaining as well as informative, I must say) were vague and general praises for the revered man. So I was quite lost about what D.B. truly wanted to tell the readers of this book. Or maybe this was exactly the type of book written for the other fans by a fan? Seems fair, as the book was written around the time the movies were in the works.

My Thoughts on Shadow Baby by Alison McGhee

This book is part of my 2014 Library. Hurrah!

This is exactly the same cover art of the copy I read. From now on and when I write my thoughts on books I read, I will try my best to look for pictures of the exact same covers.

This is another book that I borrowed from my classmate, who also lent me her copy of The Giver. When I finished reading The Giver, which I obviously fell in love with and further compelled me to read more books, I hurried to my friend, returned the book, and asked for another suggestion. Specifically, I wanted something that was kind of similar to The Giver in terms of how it would make someone feel after reading it. Then, the week after my plea, she brought this rather unheard-of title. Continue reading My Thoughts on Shadow Baby by Alison McGhee

My Thoughts on「The Da Vinci Code」 by Dan Brown

This book is part of my 2014 Library. Hurrah!

I remember the time that the movie adaptation of The Da Vinci Code was criticized in my country as it was thought to be a blasphemous work that would challenge the faith of Christians, more specifically the Roman Catholics, and make them doubt their beliefs.
