Read from June 24 to July 17, 2012

Fat Charlie reminds me of someone I know. Cute, but gutless. I suspected what was the deal with the Fat Charlie - Spider relationship since the beginning, and was happy to see them becoming friends along the way. Rosie and her mother are increadibly stupid, and Daisy is, of course, my favorite character. Anansi and his stories felt like they were part of something greater, another universe which i'd very much like to read about. The Tiger was terrifying, and when Anansi finally explains why he "stole" the stories from the Tiger it all made sense with the evolution of the human race... Amazing! I wish it was a bigger book.

Pedro eu tava preocupado com vc falando no começo "eu odeio todo mundo nesse livro!!" achando que vc não ia gostar e panz, mas aí lembrei que realmente vc tem raiva de todo mundo no começo do livro mesmo. paralelo do spider e fat charlie com id e superego? não, não?~~~


Lara Silveira sim! não tinha pensado nesse paralelo id-superego, mas até que faz sentido, o charlie sendo ansioso e envergonhado (a vergonha que ele sentia do próprio pai refletindo na vergonha que ele sentia de si), e o spider sendo inconsequente e impulsivo. que bom que os DOIS desenvolvem um EGO no final, capaz de manejar o relacionamento id/superego/meio externo. O charlie se torna mais audacioso, mais proativo, e o spider desenvolve um senso de certo/errado.

ps: posso amar o neil gaiman por não ter feito a rosie ser salva por ~homens~ no final? spider e fat charlie chegam lá e vêem que não são necessários? e a daisy é tão badass que dá orgulho! personagens femininas legais! ♥
