Anne Frank: The diary of a young girl

its been months since i last wrote a review of a book and i just want to apologize to those who waited for my update, i have been busy.

now i want to share to you the auto-biography of Anne Frank, a Jewish young girl who suffered because of the world war II.

I have reread this book due to my requirement, and as i read the book again, i regained the strange feelings that I’ve felt before.

this book will make you think and think and think of things that you have done and this will wake you up with self appreciation to things you have, it will muddle your mind in a good way.

Anne was very moving and amusing on how she had written her diary, it will make you feel young again, the excitement with a mix of horror and pity to her, her family, the Van Daan’s and all the people who were involved in the war who never did anything to cause it.

I’ll stop here, now it’s your time to read it. ^_^

DAVID COPPERFIELD by Charles Dickens

Chapter Summaries

David Copperfield By Charles Dickens Book Summary
Next

The novel traces the life of David Copperfield from the time of his birth to his mature manhood, when he is married and familiar with the vicissitudes of life. His early years are enjoyable with his mother โ€” who was widowed shortly before his birth โ€” and with her servant, Peggotty. Life is happy for David until his mother decides to marry Mr. Murdstone; afterward, life becomes unbearable for David. He is soon sent to a miserable school where he becomes friendly with James Steerforth, a fellow student.

When David’s mother dies, he is taken from school and put to work by Mr. Murdstone in a London warehouse. Although David enjoys the company of the impoverished Micawber family, with whom he boards, his other associates and the work are intolerable, so, without money or property, he runs away to his Aunt Betsey Trotwood in Dover. Despite a stern exterior, Aunt Betsey treats him well, adopting him and sending him to a good school. While at school, he boards with a Mr. Wickfield and his daughter Agnes. (Throughout the novel, David retains a fond, sisterly affection for Agnes.) After graduation, David works in the law office of Spenlow & Jorkins and soon falls in love with Mr. Spenlow’s daughter, Dora.

About this time, Em’ly, the Peggottys’ beloved niece, runs off to marry Steerforth, whom David had innocently introduced to her while she was engaged to Ham, a nephew of the Peggottys. The family is saddened by this development, but Mr. Peggotty sets out to find her and bring her back. David uses his spare time doing clerical and literary work to help Aunt Betsey, who now finds herself without financial resources. He marries Dora, only to find that he has a “child-wife” who knows nothing of housekeeping and cannot accept any responsibility.

Meanwhile, Uriah Heep, an “umble” clerk in Mr. Wickfield’s employ, whom David dislikes, has deceitfully worked his way into a partnership, aided by Mr. Wickfield’s weakness for wine. In addition, David also discovers that his old friend Mr. Micawber has gone to work for Heep. David has remained fond of the Micawbers, and it troubles him that his old friend is working for a scoundrel. Eventually, however, Micawber has a grand moment of glory when he exposes Heep as a fraud, helping to save Mr. Wickfield and restoring some of Aunt Betsey’s finances.

David’s wife, Dora, becomes ill and dies, and David is troubled until Em’ly, the Peggottys’ niece, returns to her uncle. David has felt guilty for some time for having introduced Em’ly to Steerforth. After a reconciliation is accomplished, Em’ly, along with some of the Peggottys, and the Micawbers leave for Australia to begin new lives. Before they leave, David witnesses a dramatic shipwreck in which Steerforth is killed, as is Ham in attempting to rescue him. Still saddened by the loss of his wife and other events, David goes abroad for three years. It is only after he returns that he realizes that Agnes Wickfield has been his true love all along, and their happy marriage takes place at last.

THE DA VINCI CODE

The Da Vinci Code is a 2003 mystery-detective novel written by Dan Brown. It follows symbologist Robert Langdon and Sophie Neveu as they investigate a murder in Paris’s Louvre Museum and discover a battle between the Priory of Sion and Opus Dei over the possibility of Jesus having been married to Mary Magdalene. The title of the novel refers to, among other things, the fact that the murder victim is found in the Grand Gallery of the Louvre, naked and posed like Leonardo da Vinci’s famous drawing, the Vitruvian Man, with a cryptic message written beside his body and a pentacle drawn on his chest in his own blood.

The novel is part of the exploration of alternative religious history, the central plot point of which is that the Merovingian kings of France were descended from the bloodline of Jesus Christ and Mary Magdalene, ideas derived from Clive Prince’s The Templar Revelation (1997) and books by Margaret Starbird. Chapter 60 of the book also refers to another book, The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail (1982) though Dan Brown has stated that it was not used as research material.

The book has provoked a popular interest in speculation concerning the Holy Grail legend and Magdalene’s role in the history of Christianity. The book has been extensively denounced by many Christian denominations as an attack on the Roman Catholic Church. It has also been consistently criticized for its historical and scientific inaccuracies. The novel nonetheless became a worldwide bestseller[1] that sold 80 million copies as of 2009[2] and has been translated into 44 languages. Combining the detective, thriller and conspiracy fiction genres, it is Brown’s second novel to include the character Robert Langdon, the first being his 2000 novel Angels & Demons. In November 2004 Random House published a Special Illustrated Edition with 160 illustrations. In 2006 a film adaptation was released by Sony’s Columbia Pictures.

Stolen Child

For the past few weeks I’ve wandered if I would just copy and paste the reviews from the sources in the internet so that they could say that my web site would not be in the pit, but I’ve decided myself after a bit of rethinking that its no use even if you post from reviews of others for your just fooling your own self.

That’s why here’s my review about the book that I’m currently reading the STOLEN CHILD by KEITH DONOHUE.

When i have seen the front cover i thought its like the A CHILD CALLED “IT” but when i started reading it, it gives me chills and something different. It’s a fantasy or something like a myth because it talks about faeries, and in the first part the persona mentioned about satyrs, fauns, pukas, trolls and many more.

In the story children are involved, I think based from my reading that it portrays how mindless, careless we are when we are still children wherein we wouldn’t have wanted to grow old but because of the changelings, it differs and it also shows how our environment have changed.

So i think i have given a better glimpse of the story already, so guys grab a copy now… ๐Ÿ˜€

William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet

I know that you know that we all know how the story of Romeo and Juliet goes, right?

Who wouldn’t be when it was portrayed on stage plays, into movies and we are also learning it in school?

But I wonder if anyone has ever read the real book of Romeo and Juliet, then understand how the idioms of William Shakespeare goes.

If you still haven’t, start reading and appreciate the real scenario’s from William’s mind..
