Commence, Russian Literature Addiction!

Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Nothing cheers me up than receiving a book on an ordinary day!

Especially if it’s a Fyodor Dostoyevsky novel. 🙂

Truth to be told, I’ve been looking for this novel for years, as my Fiction teacher recommended this one to us. I couldn’t find a copy in the college library back then.  Looking for Raskolnikov, that young and intellectual man, was never easy.

But I knew I always have that knack to get the things I want even if it’d take years, and this is just one of those days.

The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian (The Movie!)

Along with my favorite Harry Potter series, I also like the Narnia series of C.S. Lewis, The Chronicles of Narnia. I already completed the whole series, which, like the Potter series, has seven installments. My personal favorite book in the Narnia series is The Horse and His Boy, but I can’t deny that I also like Prince Caspian book.

I’m so happy because following the first Narnia film from Walt Disney and Walden Media, The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe, Prince Caspian movie adaptation will be premiering this June 4 in the theaters. This is very good news for the fans of the Narnia series.

I first read the series when I was in high school, and finally completed them when I just started my first year college. I admit that it was really hard to be involved in the story readily (unlike Harry Potter) but later on, as you pursue reading the other books, you’ll find that you just can’t help but love the Pevensie children and their adventures. But the exciting thing about this is that there is something deeper in the whole Narnia series, and I noticed that when I finally read the last book. C.S. Lewis is really good and very subtle in injecting his ideas in the children’s books. If I’m going to look deeper through the character of Aslan, then it feels like he is like God. To critically analyze this, is a very good idea. Ha-ha! The rest of this exciting mind work will be your quest. 😉

The movie was directed by Andrew Adamson.

Losing Myself in the Strawberry Labyrinth of Love!

I finished reading the Ichigo 100% manga series! Gosh, I’ve been reading it since first year college.It took me a long time to finish it actually, mainly because our pc’s not internet connected (oh, by the way, I read it online, not the actual printed material) and so I have to spend lots of money just reading it in my favorite internet café.I read it on http://readmanga.com but I found out that you can actually download it for free so I preferred the latter.What I did was, while I was doing academic stuffs researching in the net or updating my blog, I was also downloading it.Saves a lot of trouble, time and money. Hehehe.I could finish my required stuffs and I could read the manga at home.

I really like the story, maybe it so funny, Manaka ending up in a strawberry labyrinth of love. *laughs.

This is a summary of the manga series.Not really accurate, I’m just trying to recall some important events.And if you haven’t read the manga just yet and plan to read it, DON’T READ BEYOND THIS BECAUSE IT MIGHT SPOIL YOU. But if you want the other way around, read at your own risk. Continue reading
