Lost Library

Tips: 5.00 INK Postby lostamongtrees on Wed Mar 31, 2021 10:14 am

welcome
here you will find the slow trickle of a library unraveling; every book i've ever read and an accompanying review. there will be no order, no rhyme, no reason, no prospected completion date, and no dedication to pattern.

these are the books i've read,
and what I feel about them.
please provide your own grains of salt
tag me in the chat!

"Across the nations the stories spread like spiderweb laid upon spiderweb, and men and women planned the future, believing they knew truth.
They planned, and the Pattern absorbed their plans, weaving toward the future foretold."

The Dreamer
Pam Muñoz Ryan, Peter Sís


About
Discover the art of poetry alongside a young Pablo Neruda. Face with him the frustrations of reality denied, and deny the, further. This is a book about finding your wings, is digestible by children, and has beautiful illustrations that enhance the story.

Edition
I recommend the hardcover reading experience. You can tell there was a lot of care taken into considering the tactile experience of the book. The pages have a deckle edge and are well weighted, and the cover is holographic.

Recommended To
This book is for anyone who has ever had a dream, and thought themselves unworthy of it. A great book for children & a great reminder for adults.

Fool
Christopher Moore


About
An iconic capturing of the art of Foolery, this Shakespearean satire does not slow down for the gasps of the audience. I love that. Just, read the book. I don't want to give anything away, it's a glorious laugh-out-loud walk through kind-of history. If you've ever been forced to take a unit on Shakespeare, or genuinely appreciate the dude and what he wrote, please read this book. This book also has a sequel, which I actually read first, and it's just as good. I'll get to it here soon.

Edition
Deckled edges on the softcover edition which has a nice matte cover, the center graphic glossy. I like to tap my fingers and play with the pages whilst reading, so this was a nice book for that.

Recommended To
ADULTS, THOSE WITH A SENSE OF HUMOR, THOSE WHO APPRECIATE HOMAGES TO SHAKESPEARE, THOSE WHO CAN TAKE A JOKE, THOSE WHO ARE NOT EASILY OFFENDED BY THE LEWD CRUDE AND RUDE!

Freak the Mighty
Rodman Philbrick


READ THIS BOOK
There's a lot I could say about this book. Just read the book. You're not putting it down, not once you're into it. You'll be sitting in the car at the grocery, tears streaming down your face, shouting "NO!" at a book, feverently whipping through to the end.

This is a book that takes your heart and encases it in a steel box, starving it of the warmth of the sun. Suddenly this book rips your heart from the prison and thrusts it into the light. You are whole, and you are falling backwards, falling back into darkness. You're rolling around in the dirt and scrapping with the pages. You resign, and the book sits on your chest like a giant pyramid of stone. It is a weight you don't want to move.

I cherish this book deeply, I think you would too.
