[Book] The Best of Adam Sharp (by Graeme Simsion): Couldn't finish it. I couldn't finish it. This is a new book by Graeme Simsion who wrote The Rosie Project and The Rosie Effect. I love The Rosie Project and I like The Rosie Effect. So I chose this one but I just couldn't finish it. It is quite different from the Rosies. And the characters in the story are kind of too ordinary. It's a love stor..
[Book] The Blind Assassin - Margaret Atwood: Slow story Finally, I finished the book by skipping here and there. 1. Summary Iris is the narrator. She has a sister named Laura. And she's dead by an accident. Or a suicide. It looks like Richard, Iris husband, had an affair with Laura. Or sex involving violence. That might be the reason of her death. It also seems Iris killed Richard. But the descr..
[Book] The Rosie project (by Graeme Simsion): Extraordinary love story I borrowed the book and the CDs of the audiobook of 'The Rosie project.' In the end, I didn't even open the cover of the book because I listened to the whole story from the CDs while driving. In a word, it's fascinating! Extraordinary! Title: The Rosie projectAuthor: Graeme Simsion 1. Summary A weird professor, Don, is trying..
[Book] Quantum night (by Robert J. Sawyer): Radical categorization of people Title: Quantum nightAuthor: Robert J. Sawyer This is a book review about the book I have not read. Right, I didn't read it. I listened to it. I borrowed an audiobook from the local library which consists of 10 CDs and listened to it while I was driving. It took about 3 weeks to complete listening. The feeling of listeni..

[Book] The adoration of Jenna Fox by Mary E. Pearson: What is identity? Title: The adoration of Jenna Fox Author: Mary E. Pearson I read this book for a book club meeting. Fortunately, I could borrow its ebook copy from the local library as shown in the picture above.

[책] 파운데이션의 끝 Foundation's Edge - 가이아의 등장 책: Foundation's Edge저자: Isaac Asimov 더 늦기 전에 잊어버리기 전에 기억나는 만큼이라도 써 두려고 한다. 읽은 지 한 달 정도 지났는데 벌써 기억이 가물가물해지고 있는 데다가 요즘 읽고 있는 다른 책(Wake - Robert J. Sawyer)이 너무 재밌어서 정신을 못 차리는 중이라. 하하. 그 유명한 아이작 아시모프의 파운데이션 연작 중 한 권이다. 본편 3부작에 이어서 출간된 책이다. 출간된 순서로 읽기를 선호하는 나 같은 사람들을 위해 다시 한 번 출간된 순서대로 정리해보자. 1. 파운데이션 Foundation2. 파운데이션과 제국 Foundation and Empire3. 제2파운데이션 Seco..

'상실'에 대한 이야기 일 것이라 생각했지만 실은 찾고있는 이야기. 무언가를 누군가를. #굿걸 A photo posted by 장나라 (@nara0318) on Jul 12, 2016 at 1:23am PDT 이 위의 인스타그램 포스팅을 보고 이 책을 읽기 시작했다.

[Book] The Stars, Like Dust - Isaac Asimov: Spherical Coordinate System Title: The Stars, Like Dust Author: Isaac Asimov Year: 1951 1. Introduction It seems like this book has been published just before the famous Foundation Trilogy which has commenced being published in 1951. Some of ideas used in The Stars, Like Dust are adopted into the Foundation Series in a more developed fashion. It is bas..
[Book] Leaving Time - Jodi Picoult: It's all about elephants Reading period: 26 May - 27 June, 2016 I started to read this book thanks to the recommendation from a local library. In one sentence, I enjoyed it. The copy that I began reading it. The copy that I ended reading it. As I often say, I was so slow in reading the story that I ended up to reading it with a different copy from that I start..
[Book] Second Foundation - Isaac Asimov: Did the Seldon's plan work? Alright, the last of the three posts about the Foundation Trilogy. You can find the previous two here. (1st, 2nd) I've read it already about 4 weeks before, so it was a little hard to refresh the memory. So I read the very last section of the book one more time, which gave me some ideas what was the whole story about. (Spoiler ..
[Book] Foundation and Empire - Isaac Asimov: Who's the Mule? Once I have written a review of Foundation series by Isaac Asimov (here). Now as I have finally completed reading the trilogy - Foundation, Foundation and Empire, and Second Foundation - I am writing one more time (in two different posts) how I find the books. So this article is about the second one in the trilogy, Foundation and Empir..
