Bettie☯ Masterful, and am I right to pick up on a soupçon of Chesterton's 'Thursday' oeuvre?

:O)


message 2: by Carlo (new)

Carlo Thanks Bettie :)

Sorry but I'm not a native English speaker. If you are asking whether I drew inspiration from Chesterton's book, no not really. I didn't read that book.

Carlo Thank you Bettie!

I used Google translator to understand "trabajo" :)
I'm not Spanish. I'm from Armenia.

Manny Nice work Carlo! But I'm afraid I must delay voting until the round is finished :)

haha

I used google to get the spanish.

One of my current reading interests is Armenian:

I am dipping in and out of A Shameful Act: The Armenian Genocide and the Question of Turkish Responsibility
to contrast with The Slaughterhouse Province: An American Diplomat's Report on the Armenian Genocide, 1915-1917 which I read last month.

Carlo Thank you Manny! I fully respect and understand your tactics. Especially that I delayed voting for your and Ian's reviews for the same reason :)


message 8: by Carlo (new)

Carlo Wow!

I used to read much about it before. But I didn't read much about it in other languages except Turkish. I'll take a look at both of the books. I understand that one of them is written by a moderate Turk.

Thanks for the titles :)

Traveller Nice, very nice! ..but I'll also delay voting for now... (Btw, I should mention upfront that I'm a Lewis Carrol fan... XD

Carlo Thanks, Moira!

Traveller, the deathmatch is already finished. I was going through the review yesterday and found some typos in it. By coorecting them, it appeared in my feed. But, I can fully understand your not voting if you like Carroll. I like him too, but I'm a huge fan of Orwell who for me is second only to Dostoyevsky. I hope Manny will organize a new Deathmatch soon. It was a lot of fun then :)


message 13: by Traveller (new)

Traveller Hmm, ok, I thought they'd started a new deathmatch round again. Truth be told, I'm an Orwell fan too, so this is an unfair match... gah! Ok, I'll vote for 1984..

Marirose Bernal I can't even think straight right now after reading that. It's been a year since I've read 1984, though my thoughts kept going back to it, and it feels like a freight train just went straight through me again. That was very clever. Twisted ending. I'm going to go in a corner now and recover.


message 15: by Carlo (new)

Carlo Yes Marirose. Some very interesting ideas are found in this book. I will certainly have to revisit the book very soon.


message 16: by Marirose (new)

Marirose Bernal My brain always does(:

Tish Liddell Carlo--As a diehard 1984 fan, and a fourth cousin of the original Alice, I found this exceptionally entertaining. Thank you.


message 18: by Carlo (new)

Carlo You're most welcome, Tish. I'm flattered!
