^^I didn't think the ending lived upto the contends of the book. The whole waking up to understand the final clue wasn't very creative in an otherwise nail-bitingly exciting book.What do u think?

 

At the moment I'm reading Pride and Prejudice, i'm gonna indulge in the classics this summer. The good thing abt it is that even if i dnt understand it, i can always go rent the film icon_razz.gif

Along with the Harry Potter book, im also reading Beloved by Toni Morrison. And the movie is coming back home with me, after I return the book back at the library :D

 

I must say Foxy, the Da vinci Code has swept the country like a storm! Before the summer is over, I'll have to see what the fuss is!!

I just finished reading "The Yibiir of Las Burgabo".If you ever thought that Somalis are not bigots you will read this book with a feeling of revulsion.The leading character(Ali) dad faces indignity at the hands of the society whose heart's are filled with malignity.The society bigotry breed an opposition to everything Yibiir.Ali's dad crime was of presenting false information about his tribe when he was getting engaged to Ali's mom.The felicity of their young love and family was cut short after the society found out the truth about Ali's dad identity!.The book exposes the cruel side of the Somali society.They are rude and atrocious in their mannner towards the Yibiirs.Ali and his family lived in a society given to mischief and deviltry!.

Is the book fact-based or fiction? If the first, I am tempted to read it.

Haddad the book is fact-based. I recommend you and anyone to read it. I read it a few weeks ago. The head character actually lived and was also called Ali. The writer said so in his interview with Radio Daljir. Laas Burgaabo for instance stands for Laas - Laas Caanood/Qoray, Bur - Burco and Gaabo- Ceerigaabo.

 

I'm reading the book "When a hyena laughs" by Abdi Sheikh Abdi. I bought it online at www.Afgarad.com and the location of the story intrigued me extra: Mudug!

I'm currently reading a fact-based book called The Myth of Monogamy. I think it's a must read for anyone interested in biology, psychology and life in general. There's a heavy emphasis on evolution so if you don't accept evolution as fact, then this wonderful book is NOT for you.

You mean evolution as a dinosaur evolving to an iguana, or a Homo Habilis evolving to a Homo Sapiens?

hey Nomads

 

Good to see that U have different opinions in different books and so forth, which's a good starting point to exchanging ideas.......

 

Did any1 read about Sun Tzu's "Art of war" not that i am initiating any art of war but just inquiring about if any1 might have come across it, as the art of war might relate to other factors in daily life...

 

it just happens to be one of the old time books I admire in reading and learning an ongoing living experience.......

 

If i were to recommend one or two books of my old timers would favourites it be "Art of War" by Sun Tzu and the seat of the soul by gary Zukav's Theme("There is a great vision that comes from beyond the personality. Each of us is now being drawn, in one way or another, to that same great vision. It is more than a vision. It is an emerging force. It is the next step in our evolutionary journey).

 

 

and i am sure alot of U might have heard of it.....i recommend on the art of war and see how it would adapt/ or relate to ur daily life or to our lives and how could benefit from such benefits offered in the old days wisdom

 

 

cheers

:cool: :D

I have and it's one of my favorite books. If not THE favorite. Simple and profound. I've read it 3-4 times already.
