Our Dumb Century: The Onion Presents 100 Years of Headlines from America's Finest News Source
Our Dumb Century: The Onion Presents 100 Years of Headlines from America's Finest News Source
von Onion Staff
  Taschenbuch
Preis: EUR 17,10

5.0 von 5 Sternen This is one of the funniest books ever., 5. Juli 2000
This is one of the funniest books ever. It's not "frat-boy" humor; it's much more intelligent than that. Anyone who thinks that this book is racist, homophobic, anti-rodeo clown, etc., doesn't understand the humor, satire, or traffic lights. I pity thee.


Crime and Punishment
Crime and Punishment
von Fyodor Dostoevsky
  Taschenbuch
Preis: EUR 6,57

2.0 von 5 Sternen Highly over-rated "classic.", 5. Juli 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Crime and Punishment (Taschenbuch)
Dostoyevsky is highly over-rated. This book often falls into pits of pointlessness. There's an old in a bar, speaking to our "hero," and the old man goes on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, about nothing. That's bad writing. It seems this book was written by an insane person. Thoughts and ideas are all over the narrative, without any cohesion. It must have been written on various cocktail napkins, and newspapers, and sent to the publisher a week later, dragged in the mud by a horse.

Cat's Cradle: A Novel
von Kurt Vonnegut

Preis: EUR 12,95

5.0 von 5 Sternen This is my favorite Vonnegut novel so far., 5. Juli 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Cat's Cradle: A Novel (Taschenbuch)
This is my favorite Vonnegut novel so far. It has great usesage of humor and satire that still rings true today. Even people I know who aren't fans of Vonnegut, enjoy "Cat's Cradle." If you are to Vonnegut, I would also suggest this novel. Learn all about "Ice 9" and a world in which science has gone mad.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The most important book on how to write well., 5. Juli 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Elements of Style (Taschenbuch)
This is the most important book on how to write well. It is clear, concise, and a quick read. After reading this book, you will have all the basics of proper grammar and usage. I learned more from this book in a week than I did in years of schooling. I wish teachers would use this as a text, since it is inexpensive and highly effective. EVERYONE should have this book. This is one book that delivers the goods.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A difficult but rewarding read., 3. Juli 2000
This was the first Faulkner novle I read. The first time I read it, I wanted to chuck the book through my bedroom window. But after taking my time, reading about Faulkner, and mapping out the Benjy section with the help of Cliff's Notes, I began to enjoy this book very much. It's basically centered around one event: the daughter's lost of her virginity and the subsequent effects on her family afterwards. The book is broken into four section, each named after one of her three brothers (Benjy, Quentin, and Jason) and the family housekeeper (Disley). Each narrator gives their views of the situation, (Disley's section is narrated by Faulkner himself.)Each chapter is written in quite a different style; the most difficult, most would agree, being the first chapter, the Benjy section. Benjy is mentally retarded and has no sense of time; he works purely on physical sensation. The timeframe during his narrative is all over the place. To clear things up, Cliff's Notes map out most of the time changes in his section. (No one but Faulkner himself knows all of them, and he's dead.) Once you come to know where the scene changes, the story starts to unfold. The second section, Quentin's, is written in stream-of-consciousness. Quentin's section is written with sohpisticated vocabulary and sentence structure because he is a student at Harvard. Jason's section is probably the quickest read; he's incredibly ignorant and cruel. The Disley section is probably the most satisfying overall, but each section needs the help of the others to reach the story's full effect. This is well worth the read if you have the time.


Mike Nelson's Movie Megacheese
Mike Nelson's Movie Megacheese
von Michael J. Nelson
  Taschenbuch

5.0 von 5 Sternen The funniest book I've read this year., 27. Juni 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Mike Nelson's Movie Megacheese (Taschenbuch)
This book clearly displays Mike Nelson's talent for writing humor. I read this book in three days, often finding it difficult to put down at times. And it is very funny. It will actually make you laugh out loud, unlike many other books that are "funny." There's not one deadspot in this entire book. Those of you who are fans of the late Mystery Science Theatre 3000 will really enjoy Mike's new book.
