ANYONE, and I mean ANYONE can learn how to see and draw like an artist does if you read and do all the exercises in this book. My first two semesters of drawing in art school/college was based on this book, and we used it daily. Think of it as a year's tuition for one class saved!
The quickest way to describe this boook is Ocean's 11 meets a dystopian future moonbase colony. Featuring a brilliant, quick-thinking, and snarky herione who refuses to settle for less.
A classic from one of the most innovative and imaginative authors i have ever had the pleasure of reading. Visit a world where genders are fluid; and see it from the perspective of the first outsider who is there as an undercover observer.
Change your heart, change your world view. Looking at the world through another's eyes can help you develop empathy and most importantly be gentler with yourself and others. As HH Dalai Lama says, "Have a warm heart."
Enter the realm of King Arthur; and see the legend from the point of view of the women that surround the king. The story begins with Arthur's mother and includes Morgaine's life as it intertwines with Arthur from childhood until his death. One of my all time favorites!
Just when you think Chuck Palhniuk can not get any darker, timely or satrirical...along comes ADJUSTMENT DAY! We have SIGEND copies in stock, only 6 left!
A series of vignettes, each one dips your toes into depravity and the dark places of the psyche.
The sytax and narrative in this Pygmy is half the fun of the read! Told from an exchange student's point of view...see middle class america from a whole new perspective. Scenes that will make you laugh and squirm; and then keep you up at night.
"Noir" will be released mid- April...order this one now! I had the chance to get my Dad to help me with my homework and here is what he said regarding this book:
"Noir by Christopher Mooore is an enjoyable read. This satiric novel set in 1947 incoprprates some of the langauge of the time along with more modern idioms currently in use. No one (nor political correctness) is exempt from Moore's jab and jokes.
The plot is convoluted and made up of strands of a love story, a spy adventure and a crime novel... even Roswell's alien event is dragged into this. (MB note here: half the fun is when the second narrator's identity is revealed.)
On a scale of 1 to 10 I rate this book an 8.5-9"
Irreverent and fun, this novel tells you the adventures of Jesus and his buddy, starting at age age ten. At times hysterical, and other times poignant, Biff shares it all. Christopher Mooore uses his staggering imagination to fill in the gap in the Bible to tell you what Christ was up to from age 10 until age 32. If you would like a glimpse into the what it might have been like to be Christ's best pal this is the book for you.
The re-telling of King Lear has never been so full of laughter. Told by the jester in Lear's court, you get a behind the scenes look into why King Lear did what he did; well, sort of. Guaranteed to put a smile on your face from the opening line- I promise.
Pahaulniuk at his best. This re-release features random page changes as you navigate from chapter to chapter. Chaos ensues as two misfits attend real estate open houses and their story is revealed. Plot twists and black humor abound. You will be turning pages...be careful, you may miss a chapter or two if you don't pay attention.
A classic that reveals the skeletal 'bones' of Zen; and the 'flesh' of Japanese cultural influence laid on top of the Buddhist practice as it emigrated from China to Japan.
