** spoiler uyarısı ** Bu roman ilk birkaç sayfadan beni aldı ve sonuna kadar bağladım. Bu kitabın% 95'ini sevdim. Sevmediğim% 5, kitabın nasıl sona erdiğidir - özellikle kendi bacak kemiğini nasıl kırıp kan kaybından ölmeden ya da ölmeden bacağından nasıl çıkabileceğine dair akla yatkınlık. .. Bu yazarı muhtemelen tekrar okuyacağım.
The Burn Journals was an AMAZING book. I think that every single teenage can relate to this book in some way, shape or form. It changes your perspective on how fast life can change. Brent Runyon was fourteen years old when he set himself on fire, because he was depressed. He was immediately airlifted to a hospital in DC, and stayed there for an extended period of time. He ends up learning a lot about himself while staying there, and manages to overcome his depression. This is seriously a MUST read and I would recommend this book to everyone.
Didn't like this story, it wasn't nearly as good as all the hype I'd heard about it. "The time is the 1950's, and the place is Canada's Atlantic coast at the edge of the great Newfoundland fishing banks. Sylvanus Now is a young fisherman of great charm and strength. His youthful desires are simple: he wants a suit to lure a girl - the fine boned beauty Adelaide - and he knows exactly how much fish he has to catch to pay for it. Adelaide, however, has other dreams. She longs to escape the sea, the fish, and the stultifying community, but her need of refuge from her own troubled family leads her to Sylvanus and life in the neighbouring outport. Set against the love story of Addie and Sylvanus is the sea, the Great Mother that is on the cusp of cataclysmic change. Caught between his desire to please his wife and his strongly independent nature, Sylvanus must decide what path his future will take."
