Gulliver’s Travels was one of my all-time favorite books as a child and young adult. Adventures beyond the known and off into the worlds of the unknown, there are remarkable things to discover and rediscover as you follow Gulliver through his world of travels. Swift makes creating other worlds a fun and fascinating venture. This book is on my bookshelf of children’s best reads.
Mystery, adventure, drama, lust, jealousy, and tyranny; this story is going to be on the top 100 list for decades to come. A dramatic tale of a painter and his maid, as she learns to see what he sees in full color. If you have not seen the movie yet, then don’t, until you read the book – I promise you will not regret it. A masterpiece of artistic revelry.
Storytellers are not so easy to get to know, as per the real person deep inside, and this son is about to discover that his father was a remarkable human being. Piece by piece, the tale of this father’s life brings his son to an unknown world of imaginary reality. A wonder to read, and an adventure to watch the movie. Very well done.
A Beautiful Mind is going to stay with me forever. Genius, at all angles. The tenderness of love, to the illness that keeps them apart, Sylvia Nasar wrote these characters clear in their portrayal. Graphic details flood the mind as pages turn, giving one a sense of vivid transparency of the actions of all involved. A mathematical, yet insanely riveting read.
