那我就来说说《伊甸樱桃》(也叫《多数人死于贪婪》,原名听起来惊悚了些),慕容雪村的第三部作品了,他的作品我感觉读起来就是一个快感。笔锋犀利、叙述生动,很有故事性,更重要的是能给心灵很强的震撼。他不是一味的教化,而是让你自己去感知。我选择分享这一部,是因为现代中国人需要它,我们太虚荣了,靠着物质来撑起腰杆。但结果呢?以金相交,金耗则忘;以利相交,利尽则散;以势相交,势去则倾(来自星云大师)。看到故事的最后,我都无力了,什么都失去了只剩下钱,这才是真正的穷啊!

龙应台:《目送》,《孩子,你慢慢来》-----作为儿女和父母都需要看的书。

不记得是从什么时候开始知道这位来自台湾的作家的,印象里仿佛是从报纸上得知这位海峡对岸的知识分子的。从此脑海里的“知识分子”形象往往很容易跟她契合。据说这位台湾的“新五四”人物依恃其接受的西方教育,当年在台湾也曾经叱咤风云一呼百应。可惜受时间的局限,我无从体会那个时代的她的风采。今天推荐的这两本书也正好与那个时代的她绝缘。当这本书推出后,大陆和台湾的媒体给出了两个相反但有意思的结论。大陆评论说龙应台变小了,回到了儿女情长的个人世界。而台湾的媒体则认为她升格了,从一个关心政治的知识分子转变为一个人生的观察者。
《目送》,讲述了她与父母的关系。《孩子,你慢慢来》则讲的是她为人母的观察体悟。两本书正好将人生从幼到老做了涵盖。通体读来,亲情弥漫其中。时间,死亡,代沟,文化冲突这些永恒的主题为作者一一道来。这两本书更像是作者的成长笔记。《目送》让人理解死亡。《孩子》让人感受希望。如果你现在上有高堂,下有弱子,哪就很有必要闲下心来读读。

Anyone who has read this classic novel Adventures of Huckleberry Finn?

The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is an amazing adventure book
The main characters are an uncivilised young boy named Huck and a runaway slave, Jim, a middle aged man, searching for his freedom.
Huck narrates the story of their adventures travelling down the Mississippi on a raft. Tales are told about the various places they stop at on the way, this involves comedy, suspense and tragedy and lots of mischief.

I can't say that it changed me. but it was the very first English Novel I've ever read.  When I was a kid, I watched the American Cartoon first(dubbed in Chinese), I was so amazed by the adventures of Huckleberry Finn, as if I were him.

Then when I read the novel, I was familiar with the story line. It's fun to read. I loved the language Mark twain used. What amused me most is  the Southern American accent, of course, I found it so difficult the first time I read it, but the second time, I understood a lot better.

What have I learned from it?
1) There shouldn't be any racial discrimination. "All men are born equal". I'm wondering how things are in U.S today?
2) I've learned that men should take responsibilities. Huck's father was a drunk. He abandoned him until he found out that his son had discovered a treasure(a big fortune), he got him back and locked him up. As I was reading it, I felt a lot of sympathy with Huck. I seemed to know how hard an irresponsible father could hurt his son.
3) The true friendship, honesty.

Life is what you make of it

最近我看的一本书是《狼图腾》。这本书值得一看!说的是文革时期几个北京知青去到额仑草原后,思想,人生观的转变。狼的智慧,与小狼、陈阵狼性的回归。引申到一个民族,一个国家要富强就得有狼那样的智勇双全,而不是像绵羊那样温顺,逆来顺受!其实这本书之所以让我印象如此深刻是因为我觉得我家以前养的那条大公狗,跟书里面的二郎极似!活得威风凛凛,不失尊严,当然还有忠诚咯!它们都是好狗,带有野性却抑制处理得很好的好狗!
