The Arcades Be prominent is sprawling, unclassifiable....oneiric. Posing as an historical reasoning of the Parisian arcades--the outdoor equivalent of (and precursors to) electronic commerce electronic commerce malls--this paperback is also (among other things) a cultural history of the 19th century, an intellectual memoir of Baudelaire, an manuscript on the philosophy of history, a meditation on industrialization, a portrait of the downtown of Paris, one of the best works of review on literary modernization, a absorption on the textual behaviors of the Kabbalah, and also an original write-off to both psychoanalysis and Marxism. It is also, as Benjamin himself notes, an "awakening" from the trance of the 19th century. This paperback is almost impossible to read straight through, but carefully directed perusal bears great awards. Convolutes REGRET and K are particularly good.
Amy Olive-brown does it again! Hahah jk. It was a really interesting book, reminded me very much of Memoirs of a Geisha. I was able to really get into it, but it was just a little long, and some pieces dragged. But a good see at Chinese culture...
Another fun audio to listen to while training for my 3Day walk. Need #2 of this series next.
"Immediate Reads are bite-sized organizes [...:] for nations who want a short, fast-paced read. They are designed to be read and enjoyed by avid readers and by nations who never had or who have lost the reading habit." This mechanisms that the judgments are short and simple without complex constructions and endless sub-clauses, which becomes quite obvious after a moment. Still, this Edinburgh crime story is less simple than it seems: Apart from Dressing, a first-person-narrator with learning afflictions, who works in a graveyard, the reader also meets a host of other characters ranging from an aging and terminally ill criminal, a female detective to a metropolis councillor and his spouse. In the interest of the book, we find out how they are connected to the bag of cash and gun that Dressing inherits when his adherent Benjy turns up at his work and dies on him from a bullet hurt in his rib cage. In the quit, the items all fit together nicely for the reader, though of interest not everybody accomplishments and the characters don't really know the full story. The format is quite restrictive, especially in the clauses with a third-person-narrator, but it's a satisfying read. The sides in which Dressing tells the story mean a little more work for the reader, because of interest Dressing doesn't fully understand the position.
