Avgustovsko branje

Anne Fine, Dojenčki iz moke

»“Kaj pa je?” je vprašal Gwyn. “Zakaj pa strmite vame?” “Ne moreš prepisati česar koli,” je prijazno pojasnil Robin Foster. “Imeti mora nekaj skupnega s teboj. Ti pa nisi črn.”«

Nekega dne se v razredu samih zgub učitelj odloči, da bodo za projekt skrbeli za dojenčke iz moke … Priporočam.

Ben Nevis, Trije ??? – Polet smrti

Ben Nevis je Nemec, ki štepa (že več kot 160 jih je) zgodbe o treh prijateljih pod krovno znamko ‘trije vprašaji’. Za mularijo, za prebrat in pozabit.

Barbara Simoniti, Peter Škerl, Močvirniki

»Nad Močvirno Loko se je dramil lep, oblačen dan. Oče Močeradnik je že ob zori odšel k starešini Vodovniku v Nabrežni gaber na drugem koncu Glogovega gaja. Vsako jutro sta se od tam odpravila na vremenarski pohod po vsej Močvirni Loki.«

Domača, krasno ilustrirana knjiga o močvirnatem kotičku, kjer v slogi živijo razna dvoživkasta in plazilkasta bitja. Vsekakor za prebrat.

The Ocean at the End of the Lane

Neil Gaiman, The Ocean at the End of the Lane

»‘That’s the moon,’ I said. ‘Gran likes it like that,’ said Lettie Hempstock. ‘But it was a crescent moon yesterday. And now it’s full. And it was raining. It is raining. But now it’s not.’ ‘Gran likes the full moon to shine on this side of the house. She says it’s restful, and it reminds her of when she was a girl,’ said Lettie. ‘And you don’t trip on the stairs.’«

Gaiman je itak vedno za prebrat in ne razočara. Tudi ta zgodba o babici, materi in hčeri, ki so “prišle od daleč” in od katerih se najstarejša še spominja velikega poka, o ribniku, ki je v resnici ocean, pa o pošasti, ki se prešverca iz vilinskih koncev in noče nazaj, povedana skozi perspektivo mladega glavnega junaka, je naravnost odlična.

wiki

Divergent (Divergent, #1)

Veronica Roth, Divergent, Insurgent

»Somewhere inside me is a merciful, forgiving person. Somewhere there is a girl who tries to understand what people are going through, who accepts that people do evil things and that desperation leads them to darker places than they ever imagined. I swear she exists, and she hurts for the repentant boy I see in front of me. But if I saw her, I wouldn’t recognize her.«

Tole sem prebral samo zato, ker so jo stalno nekaj omenjali okoli mene, pa, mnjah, no ja. Meh. Če se le da, preskočite.

Robert Galbraith, The Cuckoo's Calling

»The dead could only speak through the mouths of those left behind, and through the signs they left scattered behind them. Strike had felt the living woman behind the words she had written to friends; he had heard her voice on a telephone held to his ear; but now, looking down on the last thing she had ever seen in her life, he felt strangely close to her. The truth was coming slowly into focus out of the mass of disconnected detail. What he lacked was proof.«

Krimič avtorice Harryja Potterja, izdan pod psevdonimom. Prav prijetno branje.

wiki

Kris Saknussemm, Enigmatic Pilot: A Tall Tale Too True

»After all, a comet had been spotted in recent times, and just the year before a dairy farmer in Gnadenhutten had found a cow pie in the shape of the Virgin Mary. Clearly, the world was working up to something decisive. So Hephaestus had turned the bulk of his attention to the problem of how to escape time and so shield his loved ones from doomsday.«

Čuuuudna zgodba iz druge polovice 19. stoletja, o magiji, tajnih organizacijah in letenju. Večinoma prav fino branje, edino na koncu sploh nisem vedel, kaj naj si mislim o celi zadevi.

wiki

Dust (Jacob's Ladder, #1)

Elizabeth Bear, Jacob’s Ladder (Dust, Chill, Grail)

»"How is it you speak our language?" The rustling peaked. It seemed the orchid could talk and laugh at the same time, because it answered, "Television."«

Generacijska vesoljska ladja, ki je komaj preživela nesrečo. Trilogija o nanotehnologiji, razkolu med kulturami in razmišljanju, do kam še ostanemo ljudje. Bearova ima dobre ideje, predvsem pa odlično piše.

wiki

image Edward W. Robertson, The Cutting Room

»Our mantra is much like a doctor's: first, do no harm. Causality is a thing that can drive you mad. My very presence was changing the course of particles. A man driving down the street could glance my way, miss the red light, and plow down a child. Protocol insists on exhausting observational methods before attempting direct intervention.«

Časovna policija, časovne zanke itd. Izšlo v šestih delih po dolar, potem pa še kot paketek, ki sestavlja prav luštno knjigo.

Cres

Tale zoprni dež me je spomnil, da še nisem objavil slik iz našega letošnjega (drugega) letovanja. Naj vam popestrijo meglen jesenski dan.

With a “small” delay I’ve finally found some time to publish pictures from our holiday vacation on the Adriatic see.

image

Čisto na koncu šolskih počitnic smo šli kampirat na Cres, v majhen kamp Zdovice zraven Valuna. Prav lepo je bilo, čeprav (oziroma ravno zato), ker se z avtomobili ne da do kampa in je treba zvozit kramo od mesteca z ročnim vozičkom. (Potem pa odpeljat avto na strmo – ampak res strmo – parkirišče, ali pa še višje, na manj strmo parkirišče. Potem pa po možnosti še pustiš prižgane luči in imaš naslednji dan zabavo, ker je akumulator prazen, kabla pa nima nihče, razen prijaznih avstrijcev v škodi. Ampak pustimo to.)

We spent a week camping on the island Cres, in camp Zdovice. Recommended!

imageimageimageimage

Sonce je bilo vroče, senca in voda mrzla, pa se je to čisto lepo izšlo s tem, da je bil šotor zjutraj v senci, popoldne na soncu (takrat smo, v nasprotju z vsem kar sicer počnemo in pridigamo, odšli na plažo), pozno popoldne pa spet v senci. Kaj dosti nismo hodili naokoli, smo si pa ogledali Vransko jezero, Osor in Lubenice. Nazaj grede pa smo obiskali še jamo Biserujko na Krku.

Mostly we spent our days near the tent and on the beach but still we managed to see most of the island, including the largest Croatian island lake, cities Osor and Lubenice and  the Biserujka cave on the island Krk.
