Cane Nehri sevdi, umarım bu kadar iyi olacak.
I really enjoyed this book and the twists and turns that were in it. The only real complaint I had was that it seemed 'too busy' at times like there were too many stories going on at once to truly know some of the characters.
This was a book club book for a meeting I never made it to. Fictional autobiography of Walt, a street kid from St. Lous who is taken under the wing of a magician named Master Yehudi. The master teaches Walt how to levitate (for serious), and after his showbiz career is cut short at 14, we follow him through life as a Chicago gangster and eventual family man. "Well, my fine-feathered rascal," he said to me that first morning, "give me the lowdown on what you know about the three R's." "Three?" I said, going for the quick, wise-guy retort. "I ain't got but one arse, and I use it every time I sit down. Same as everybody else." "I mean school, you twerp. Have you ever set foot in a classroom--and if so, what did you learn there?" "I don't need no school to teach me things. I've got better ways of spending my time than that." "Excellent. Spoken like a true scholar."
I have to start by saying I am so embarrassed to admit I read this. It's definitely chick lit and not my typical choice of book. I was intrigued with the whole "going to school in Paris" (or so I'm telling myself). The narrative voice is definitely coming from a teenager, with the "Oh my gosh" feel to it. It also has a bit of language and questionable morality at times. Given all that, I finished it quickly and liked it.
