yeah. and for some reason, so many things are in the way of reading. and i really love how dante alighieri portrayed so many things there, like the sins and all. and one paticular verse that i like there is the one that's written on the gates of hell.Originally Posted by Luckas04
"Abandon all Hope ye who enter here" So cool!
Incredible, the verses on the Gates of Hell are those I like the most.Originally Posted by bakashijinsan
yeah! it really is incredible! i mean, he was able to think that far ahead and to think it was written sometime in the rennaisance. dante is considered a genius because of this work of his.
oh! and if some of you have seen that movie of Robin Williams where all of the members of his family died (i think it was What Dreams May Come), you can see there so many allegorical references from The Inferno. that's what made me see the movie in the first place.
i bought that dvd, the scenery is quite surreal. but the story's great. I forgot the last time i read Dante's Inferno. but i guess bakashijinsan is right, the movie (What Dreams May Come) has a lot of references from Dante's work.
I'm currenly contemplating on choosing what to read. I got Dark Tower 1st book, Life of Pi by Yann Martel, and For One More Day by Mitch Albom.
I'm also looking for a book called Inheritance of Loss, I heard it's a great read.
hey! can anyone suggest any good book? i'm not into romance tyoe books so no daniel steel for me. any genre would do except romance.
yeah there are. especially the one where they stepped on the faces on the souls. you can find that in the 1st (i think) of the ninth circle of Inferno.Originally Posted by ichimaru_gin_n_tonic
can you tell me what genre these books belong?Quote:
Dark Tower... wasn't that some fantasy series by the King of horror? And Life Of Pi is a great book, or so i've heard, go start with that one
who's the king of horror? anyway, what genre is Life of Pi? i'm planning on getting a book and i don't know what to get.Originally Posted by Khal
Hmm... I suggest you read books by Kipling (Jungle Book, Kim) or Yann Martel's work or Mitch Albom's work if you're into spiritual soul searching, chicken soup, heart-warming stuff.Originally Posted by bakashijinsan
If you're into spy/action/war story stuff, you can try works by Robert Ludlum -- famous for Bourne Trilogy, consisting of Bourne Identity, Bourne Supremacy and Bourne Ultimatum; Sharpe series by Bernard Cornwell; Jack Higgin's WW II stories; Tom Clancy (The Hunt for the Red October, Patriot Games, Executive Decision).
There are too many good books by great authors out there. try browsing for recommended books on spesific genre on the internet.
i just didOriginally Posted by bakashijinsan
thanks for the suggestion gin. i'll try to find some of the books you mentioned and try to read it after my exam.
how about the latest installment of the Sword of Truth by Terry Goodkind. The Title is Phantom. But I suggest you read the first 9 books first
is that fantasy? i like fantasy with a twist.Originally Posted by briofreez
Yes. A story of a woodsguide learning he is a powerful wizard from two great lines of wizard families. Although his powers are remarkable, he still does not know how to use it.Originally Posted by bakashijinsan
Im also reading Neil Gaiman books, Neverwhere was entertaining but Anansi boys, well, its not my cup of tea.
now im confused on what to get. but come november i'll be able to read all of those!Quote:
I like Neil Gaiman's work only in the form of comic books.Originally Posted by briofreez
