Kimin maven, kimin bağlayıcı ve kimin satıcı olduğu hakkında ilginç tartışmalar yaptık. Bunun dışında, gerçek hayat açısından aktarılacak çok az şey var.
unbelievable! This book was a little hard at time - (teenaged boys and sex) but otherwise I love it. It fall into the same category for me as Edgar Sawtelle and Poisonwood Bible. I was hooked fomr the beginning!
Deciding to re-read this book over fifteen years since reading it last had me a bit wary. I worried that it would feel dated; something a younger me thought was powerful, but an adult me no longer connects with. I was wrong. This book is every bit as energetic and sun-soaked as it was the first time around, and left me wondering what the characters would have made of the world to come. They seek to find someplace new because tourists and crowds swallow up every other interesting place on the trail. They gripe about people travelling halfway around the world but still wanting the comforts of home. What would they have made about people wandering the world over, but doing so while still staying tethered with their technology. THE BEACH is checkered by the film it spawned, which isn't the worst thing in the world...but makes it's very different ending that much more powerful when it arrives. This was a welcome trip down memory lane...now where's my passport?
