Hunger Games trilogy is really fun. I might be in the minority who liked the last book Mockingjay though.
The Capitol reminds me of Moscow during the Soviets.
Just added this to my Kindle. Thanks.
Back when I was reading books in the 90's every book in Sweden was either about the jews or the nazis or both or written by a jew or released by a jewish publisher. As a jewish family, Bonnier, owns 90% of media in Sweden this should not come as any big surprise.
I take this book as proof that not much have changed since those days not even abroad. Reading is bad for the eyes so drink a lot of blueberry juice or eat them fresh.
Yeah, I do not think the situation abroad is the same as in little Sweden where the media owners have an influence on what is released in a way that must be rare elsewhere in the world. What is important here is that the nazi movement has more or less died out in Sweden and many other countries and the same people that were nazi are now pro-Israel because of the EDL and the manifest written by Anders Behring Breivik.
Things have really changed due to the threat from the muslims making people who used to hate Israel and jews taking sides with them against the muslims. I would go as far as to say that the nazi movement in Sweden has been totally wiped out in the sense they are no longer heard anywhere and have lost the little power they had online and through other media.
Books have always been an important tool to influence people into thinking in a certain way and I would say that the majority of books are written by marxists and are anti-liberal and anti-conservative. If you're not a socialist then you really have to put in an effort to find books that describe things in a more sensible way. I believe books are behind the fact that people are so ill informed and it is brain washing to me. I have never met a book reader with a mind of his or her own. I fear these people and they must be questioned at all cost.
To me they are like the Wikipedia generation thinking what they read must be facts.
I do love Michel Foucault and it's one of my favs. Through this book you can understand some may question about punishment and its theories. And we - journalist - use some theories in mass communication.I brought about a dozen pieces of fiction(William Gibson, Neal Stephenson, Bruce Sterling, Umberto Eco, Albert Camus, Caleb Carr & Margaret Atwood)
Some of these I had already read, but it had been years, now they are all read, so I am onto my non-fiction, first up is:
after that some Derrida and then, I don't know, I'll have to look, I know there is a "Marx reader" in there somewhere and the Bible, of course.
ps: 1/2 of my big suitcase was devoted to books!
