ساق البامبو by سعود السنعوسي
"كان بودي أن أعطي الرواية نجمات أكثر لأني توقعت المزيد من ساق البامبو. الموضوع جريء و مشوق، لكن لا يوجد صراع قوي في القصة أو أنه لم يُكتب بطريقة مناسبة فحيرة عيسى بين الأديان تشبه حيرة "باي" فقط أضف إليها حيرته في ما هو الوطن.
بدا لي في النهاية أن..." Read more of this review »

عيبٌ على كاتب يمتلك هذا الكم الفخم والمرعب من الكلمات الرائعة والأسلوب الراقي أن يستغله في هذه الأوصاف الصريحة عن جسد المرأة وتأثيرها "جسديًا" فيه وليس تأثيرها كأنثى تُضفي للحياة طابعًا ليس إلا عن الرغبة الجسدية ..

أخذني الكتاب في البداية فغُصتُ معه ولم أستطع تركه فوجدت نفسي أقرأ الكثير من الصفحات وأوقف نفسي عن القراءة بمجهود.
كتاب جيد ولكن به الكثير من الفجوات. به أخطاء نحوية لا تُغتفر، وحشو أحيانًا ما يصبح مملًا شديد الملل إلى حد أني أردت أن أقلب الصفحات للوص

“I'd rather let you cover all my roads with thorns than with dead roses.”
Nema Al-Araby

“Not everyone talks in words.”
Nema Al-Araby

“I'm an alien in my own world, a writer without words, a musician without a piano, a magician without a wand. I am fooled by infinite words that rush in my blood, yet imprisoned by the very thoughts of silence. I'm a gray green fallow leaf on trees and abandoned on the streets, a never-ending spring season and an eternal autumn. I'm the golden of the sun and the silver of the moon, the fog of dawn and the amber of dusk. I'm the white and the red flag , the obedient and the rebel. I am the coward in the brave, and the child in the man. I am, but a writer.”
Nema Al-Araby, Remnants and Ashes

“...there would be punishment and pain, and there would be happiness, too. That was writing.”
Markus Zusak

“I can never read all the books I want; I can never be all the people I want and live all the lives I want. I can never train myself in all the skills I want. And why do I want? I want to live and feel all the shades, tones and variations of mental and physical experience possible in my life. And I am horribly limited.”
Sylvia Plath, The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath

“يفهمون أنه يحاول تشويه أعمالهم ، أنه ينسب إليه فظائع لم تحدث ، نعم لم تحدث ، لم تحدث ، ألا يوجد عقار ما يمنع الإنسان من التفكير في أمور بعينها؟”
جمال الغيطاني, الزيني بركات

“Much of your pain is self-chosen.
It is the bitter potion by which the physician within you heals your sick self.
Therefore trust the physician, and drink his remedy in silence and tranquility:
For his hand, though heavy and hard, is guided by the tender hand of the Unseen,
And the cup he brings, though it burn your lips, has been fashioned of the clay which the Potter has moistened with His own sacred tears.”
Khalil Gibran

“Let there be spaces in your togetherness, And let the winds of the heavens dance between you. Love one another but make not a bond of love: Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls. Fill each other's cup but drink not from one cup. Give one another of your bread but eat not from the same loaf. Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone, Even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with the same music. Give your hearts, but not into each other's keeping. For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts. And stand together, yet not too near together: For the pillars of the temple stand apart, And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other's shadow.”
Khalil Gibran, The Prophet

Yasmine So Nema, I finished reading The Catcher in the Rye; I personally loved it, but I don't know about you because this book is the kind of books you'll really love or really hate, it's also very sarcastic..but I think you should give it a try anyway :)
