Give your piece of mind Just finished 'Animal Farm' by Orwell yesterday and I feel ever more compelled to read '1984' now. Though I honestly have no idea about what it really is about but I just want to read more of Orwell's books. Started on 'Eleven Minutes' by the ever inspirational and spitirually inclined Paulo Coelho. Wow, I've never praised an author like that before. Not even Tolkien. But he is good. And Orwell too.
Oh, yes. What I thought about 'Animal Farm'. It was really good. Interesting, intriguing, beguiling, satirical, and thoroughly engrossing. The length of the book was perfect too. Not too short nor too long that I could finish it in two days. I think that's the perfect reading time span for me. Books that can be read in two days. I wonder if everyone else's reading time span is something like mine. It should be since it's long enough to get you in the mood to read but not too long that it drowns and bores you down with lengthy descriptions and overdrawn storylines. Not that I don't like books like that but some books can get too overly overblown and then I wouldn't like them anymore. I'm deviating from the topic of tonight again.
I can't tell too much for I might spoil the plot but it's a book that everyone should read at least once. I might read it again if I've nothing else to read and I need something literature-ey (I know that's not a word) to stir my senses. It's essentially about a satirical take on humans and how humans behave. But this time the characters are talking animals. Which might seem strange but works really well for this story. The ending will leave you sort of thinking and just pondering a bit for a while because there's really no right or wrong lines drawn but just a blur border set up to let you decipher and settle for yourself what you really think about it. Yeah, I love thinking and pondering books.
I'm falling into the dark side again. The dark side of fangirlism that is. The last time was about a certain Harry and now it's Hayden. (Hey his alter ego; Anakin, and I are in almost the same position of falling into the dark side. Except his involves some massive galactic thing while mine is more down to earth.) I can't explain why I've suddenly developed this crush on him but I just did. It's possibly because of a certain picture I casually glanced at a free teen magazine, which I have stopped buying long ago but glaze over it and read it because my dad gets free copies of it monthly. But, yes, it's all because of that picture, I swear. Damn those strategically perfectly shot studio photos with high tech touch-ups and wind-blown hair effect. Not that his hair was wind-blown because that would seem too gay. And I have nothing personal against gay people too. I'm becoming diverted away again. My mind can't seem to focus on just one thought per paragraph but have to gloss over several thoughts at the same time. But, I digress. He just looked particularly very good looking without that whole Vader get-up which I dislike very much. He looks so much better without the slightly wavy and longish looking hair. Does anyone else besides me get these type of crushes which just lasts maybe a week at the most? I'm too "matured" to be getting these type of crushes anymore so I am slightly embarrassed to be admitting this openly. I just need some assurance that I'm not alone. Please say I'm not alone.
