11 minutes of our unconsciousness
Eleven Minutes - Paulo Coelho

Lets talk about sex, said Paulo Coelho and bravely dug into the subject in his simple, beautiful, and unassuming way. None tell us why 11 minutes is so important when we are kids. Why we can not move this short period of unconsciousness into a beautiful bliss of 30 min, 1 hour, 2 hours love making. So difficult to comprehend that we are chained by 11 minutes of unconsciousness, and women in Paulo stories explore all sort of subjects, from spirituality to loneliness to long term relationship dilemmas and in this case: sex. I loved the story and his approach. A must read

Our future revealed
1984 - George Orwell
One of the books you would expect many people to like. Yet, made it into most popular ones with the reason. A vision of the new world we as humanity are heading towards. Will we reach it tomorrow or in 10 years, 100 years time, it is a constant reminder that we (human) have a tendency to walk into the direction of "controlled", "monopoly driven", "state run", "ideology abused" state of living. Technology was far from advanced at the time Orwell wrote his book, and yet he saw the future and warned us about it. Will we listen? Or just walk into the trap? A book of a visionary! Must to read!

Toni FGMAMTC's Reviews > The Good Earth
The Good Earth - Pearl S. Buck

Oh man, this story. It's a doozy. Some parts are just so very sad. The family just keeps trying and trying and trying. Their life is such a struggle. The woman, OMG, her entire life is heartbreaking. Thinking of her makes me feel overwhelmed. The Good Earth is about a family trying to live off the land and better themselves. Each decision affects their entire future. It's a humbling story for sure. This is a hard book for me to rate. I love a book that makes me emotional, and this did that very much. Some parts made me upset in a bad way though, but I guess it really was just staying true to how life was. If you're looking for a story to take you away, this did that for me. It totally took over my mind while I was reading it. If you're looking for a upbeat tale, this probably isn't it. It's not all sad like my review is making it sound though. I do recommend it very much.
4+ stars

Toni FGMAMTC's Reviews > The Scarlet Letter
The Scarlet Letter - Nathaniel Hawthorne,Nina Baym,Thomas E. Connolly

I read this book in school. I wasn't crazy about it then, but it was a little better the second time. I honestly don't remember much about when I read it in school or the discussions about meanings that we probably had. I still got bored some, but Pearl kept me more interested this time. I like the way everyone else's crap doesn't seem to get Pearl down. She's a strong character.
