Talking in a demented state, Salute to literature

April 25, 2012 Leave a comment

Literature is a very vital importance to my life, it affects the personality of one-self due to the compulsive act of the writing. Two are the most basically written category, fiction and non-fiction. (I guess you know what that two categories means.)

It plays safe and sound to the depths of heart of the people who appreciates Literature. Literature changed me, in a way that people will sympathize or even pity with me just because I changed. There are really great tides of effects onto people who are in problems or in great need of acceptance. Just to know how it feels, READ!

So basically, in every places you’ll find two basic types of people, theReaders and theNon-Readers. These two people can always argue and try not to understand each other. (Believe me, I’d had experience on it.) Squalling with each other is not a good thing, isn’t it? So when me and my classmates are about to get to the topic of books, they’ll roll their eyes and sigh. Just the right people to balance me in this world. *sighs*. They just don’t understand the essence of something behind those words in each pages or the greatness and importance of it.

Once, I remember a best of my friends asked me something that caught me off-guard, she said “What do you get from reading these books? They are just a waste of your money?” She added that it’s a crazy thing to be a habit, a waste of my time. But really who cares about it? I’m happy about it, those nasty comments are not even compared to what extent when I have fresh papers or old ones in my hand I’m in love and at the same time a silly boy falling in love with Literature. Those musty scent, the invigorating cataclysm that gives you to edge closer just to get the hint of it, I just can’t avoid to act like it doesn’t call to me.

Though in some parts I have weakness in Literature, poems. My biggest disaster is that I can’t get the hang of it when I read some, I need to reread it a bajillion times or have someone to explain it to me. But really, poems are a no-no for me. I have great imagination but I lacked in understanding.

There’s a part of me that is contented on reading, having a crave, and the emotions that dance with every beat of words. My soul is a big flame that flickers once and every minute.Flickering but never doused. I just want to say that Literature is a a big thingy for me. It helped me in my daily life, to confront every problem with confidence, it made me more mature than I ought to be. It also taught me to be fluent in this language, though not that proficient. You can never blame me for what I loved to do, reading became a part of me, and literature became a piece of my soul, somewhat somewhere it’s my nature.

Book Review: Everlost, Neal Shusterman

December 27, 2011 Leave a comment

Dramatic. Fulfillment. Enigmatic

The final showdown to an end is put forth in Everfound. The trilogy comes to its finality. As all things are supposed to do.

I know I can’t do this book justice, for it is really a splendid work! I still can’t stop thinking about it! The end of the book was just momentous as the start of Nick’s and Allie’s journey to the Everlost.
Everyone seemed to find and got where they are going. A peaceful light, that extinguishes every doubt in every Afterlights who have seen it.

It totally blow away my mind, I felt strong emotions surged from the book to me. It was amazing and scary at the same time. I was momentarily stunned by the events that happened and found out that moment had stretched out into minutes. It’s really haunting, the way the book had entire control over you. All of this happened when I was reading Everfound.

Simply saying, I love this book, the series, everything! Though it still doesn’t have the stand against Unwind, it’s brilliant!

Allie, I send my regards to wherever you are(not totally spoiling, are we?)! Maybe after all it still a strange thing that everything happened has a reason and that a certain purpose is a demand of the universe itself, a calling from within. I cried for you. Yet, yet.
And that maybe after all the chocolate ogre realized the connection or why he is really drawn to Mary. Or that fur-jacking is better with the heightened senses than normal skinny-jacking.

Can you please illuminate me how the hell did Mary got her first dress on again when she had something “new” on while Milos re-killed her? Totally bullshiting me out or maybe I just left something while doing the process.

And at the end Everlost has had a true and better-vision accompany to led the new Greensouls that has recently crossed over and not to made them linger the wilderness and to truly open their eyes that what they are searching for just to be ready is ever found just in their pockets. A mysterious coin that make the mind go bold and remember everything important, after all they were born with readied name and so shall leave with it forever.

Book Review: Everwild, Neal Shusterman

Controversial as ever.

I loved it! This second book on the planned trilogy was mind blowing! Better than the first! I’m astounded as I’m reading. Answers on the Everlost came pouring out in Everwild that was more shocking than being an information!
The story still revolves around Nick and Allie but not as the same as before, they traveled separately. Nick is on an opposing journey to rebel against Mary Hightower, the Sky Witch. His aim to free many as possible Afterlights there are from Mary. Allie on the other way survives her ever descending to the center of the earth by the McGill, the one monster of Everlost. Her aim to pay a visit to her parents to shove off any troubling thoughts she had about her father not surviving the crash.

Mary Hightower was persuasive as the light. SHE is the one true monster of Everlost. I can’t telly you anymore cause you had seen it already from the first book, but!! There is so much here that you can’t stomach it and you wanna puke from the disgusting and pure evil mind work behind! And disgusting as the worms crawling from a dead man, she thinks that what she really does is for the good sake of them or it or everyone!
We met new characters as revelations come and gone. And they are factors to be considered and not to be trifled with. New allies too from both sides, hmm and there is a betrayal too, some.
Everything was at their peak! And everything is at their precautionary menus. This book was so so so much an excitement to me, I remembered once when I was still reading this that I really got carried I laughed loudly at it and remembers that im still at class. They all lokked at me and thought that i was really going crazy. So what. If making progress at the book will result in being a lunatic. Im welcome.
My eyes are for those who can be found but still glimpses of the lost comes around.

CAPTIVATING!

Everlost was a comparison to a quicksand. Quick-pulling, the more you move the more you sink, and enveloping. I was sucked at a quicksand by reading Everlost. I was pulled, I let the words wash over me and let the lost world to life.

Everlost tells a different story about afterlife. Somehow unexplainable things happened to some other kids after they died. They are given birth again, but in another world, Everlost. Mysteries are somewhat a second nature of it, aside being a home for thousands of dead kids. If you stay long in one place you’ll sink and you’ll probably end up in the center of the earth which is the talk of the town. Monsters, horrible powers, author of some guide to the Everlost, seems to crowd it.
Everlost is an opposite for the living worlds. The things that no longer exists in the LW crossed to the Everlost to still do things they are meant to do. Which is stand forever and be with eternity.

After reading Shusterman’s Unwind, curiosity got out for me to read another novel of him. So Everlost it is, it came out shocking as Unwind did! It was totally a creepy one again! About dead kids after all! But as creepy it was I enjoyed it. The characters are just so lovable. And even there is only a hint of romance it was okay. I really thought from the beginning that it will be Allie and Nick together or a love triangle war will be proposed, but I’m so wrong as I’m reading Everwild.
Totally a great read! Love it!
