This the only Tom Robbins book I have not read entirely. Once ever couple of years I start it again, but I've never made it past Bonanza Jellybean's arrival at the Ranch. Someday. I will finish it. Someday.
I know, I know. Believe it or not, I bought and read this literally the week before all thesmokinggun.com report came out. It's well written and a riveting read even knowing that it's all fiction. I'd recommend it, even knowing that it's not true.
Louis Pauwels - The Morning of the Magicians - I originally read it in French and I was really inspired by the thinking behind it. The way it was opening gates to new spheres of thought and innovative way of looking at the unexplained. It gave a sense that there are answers hidden all around us for which we had to dig a little deeper, if we cared to "connect all the dots" that were left unconnected behind life's mystery veil and that one could actually lift the veil by one's own creativity and epigenesis to perform the necessary internal alchemy of revelation. Some criticize it for lacking factual basis and fail to realize that one must tune into the Spirit woven through the long but fascinating text and its veiled revelations beyond the words, as obviously this masterpiece finds its power in the words that are not said. It is one of those rare "Book of the Mysteries" given to those among us who have eyes to see and ears to hear!
I thoroughly enjoyed the other Sedaris books I have read and was disappointed with this one. While I appreciated the cleverness and it was an easy read, I couldn't get into the characters. This was odd and I forced myself to finish.
I learned about him from Nova and I've been using the PBS segment in my freshman writing class to introduce my students to the idea of being "wholly brained", that some of us aren't just either logical or creative, but rather, a combination of the two. Iagnemma works at MIT creating robots that explore Mars, but I'm interested to see what his heroic couplets sound like. Here's the segment: http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/sciencen...
I might have been charmed by this if it weren't for the fact that I've been a one week resident of Chincoteague for 2 decades and love the place. The verse is just fine. But the pictures--BLEH! They are flat and look like something a small child would draw in terms of spacing and proportion. The two islands (Assateague where the ponies are and Chincoteague where the people live) appear to be side by side, though they are separated by a wide bay or channels. And you can't SEE the beaches from Chincoteague--you have to drive across the island, through acres of marsh and scrublands. My 9 year old, who has gone to Chincoteague since she was a toddler, was equally disappointed. Want a GOOD book about our island? Get Jim Arnosky's Wild Ponies A One Whole Day Book Sadly, it's out of print, but it will give you a real feel for Assateague, something this book fails utterly at doing. And while Susan Jeffers My Chincoteague Ponyhas its problems, it will give you a far better sense of Chincoteague Island and Pony Penning.
