Bu kitabı sevdim. Bir kez girdikten sonra, gerçekten bırakmak istemedim. Kuşaklar arası bir kitap ve her şey sonunda bağlanıyor ve hikayeler bunu yaptığında seviyorum.
FASCINATING story of the creation of the oxford english dictionary.
This is an enjoyable thriller that may remind you a bit of Stephen King, especially The Stand (yes, a hotel is involved). But the horror does not reside in the hotel, it resides in the local mineral water springs, which have been a feature of this resort town for years. Although the novel's plot gets a bit off course at times, it is still fun.
Definitely a heavy read, but well worth the investment for anyone interested in existential ideas, and even an alternative look at psychoanalysis.
Ford does a great job of reviewing some ontological, metaphysical, and epistemological assumptions behind ancient myth, religion, science, and postmodernism. The prose is accessible, and though a little dense at times, this is an essentially academic-level book. If you're a well-read person who knows basic philosophy, it may still take you some time to churn through the layers. If you're not, finishing this book may be daunting. I started reading this book years ago as I was thinking about what "the meaning of meaning" is. What are "values"? What is "morality"? Are these things just feelings, culture, expressions of creativity? The beautiful thing about this book, which I sincerely appreciated, is that there are no complete answers to these questions. Life requires ambiguity, mystery. As animals who evolved consciousness, our particular view of the world will always be through the eyes of our nature and humanity. Can we see the world as it is? Or only as we are? Read this book if you want to be challenged and informed. Don't read it if you're looking for "chicken noodle soup" stories and easy answers.
