The Latest from Danely’s ReadHouseReview Blog
- Ray Bradbury’s The Creatures That Time ForgotI’m not a huge fan of short stories. They always leave me wanting more: a longer plot, more detail, more of a resolution. None of that ever arrives for the reader. It’s frustrating beyond belief, it’s that form of titillation is often very addictive. It’s the reason why many readers love Ray Bradbury. In TheContinue reading “Ray Bradbury’s The Creatures That Time Forgot”
- Roxane Gay’s An Untamed StateThere’s no room for such distinction in a country where too many people have to claw for what they need and still have nothing to hold. An Untamed State by Roxane Gay is the story of a woman that gets kidnapped in Haiti for ransom. It gets interesting when her father decides to be anContinue reading “Roxane Gay’s An Untamed State”
- Karma Lekshe Tsomo’s Buddhist Feminisms and FemininitiesLanguage is powerful and can express more than mere concepts. My Buddhist studies were limited to one course back in the early 2000’s, but I never looked at religion the same since. It completely changed my POV of Catholicism and Christianity. And, it also surprisingly shifted my thoughts on feminism. It totally gave me thisContinue reading “Karma Lekshe Tsomo’s Buddhist Feminisms and Femininities”
- Lindsay C. Gibson’s Adult Children of Emotionally Immature ParentsThe ability to feel mixed emotions is a sign of maturity. I’m sure that I’ve read Lindsay Gibson’s Adult Children of Emotionally Immature Parents twice now. Many of the trauma books explain very similar concepts. Gibson is particularly good at providing facts and details. Due to current personal reasons, I am finding it challenging toContinue reading “Lindsay C. Gibson’s Adult Children of Emotionally Immature Parents”
- Ray Bradbury’s The PlaygroundThe Playground by Ray Bradbury is one of those short stories that I would really love to subject to some serious analysis. I could just really play with the concept of age, regression, evil, and life stages. This short story could be looked at through a psychoanalytical lens, Marxist lens, and/or sociological perspective. In theContinue reading “Ray Bradbury’s The Playground”
- Ray Bradbury’s A Sound of ThunderA Sound of Thunder has been on my reading list for a decade. I got really into science fiction my first year of college at UCSB. Because I’ve been distracted with theatre and film literature, I hadn’t gotten back to reading some good “old-fashioned” Ray Bradbury until now. It’s kind of funny to consider himContinue reading “Ray Bradbury’s A Sound of Thunder”
- Madly, Deeply: The Diaries of Alan RickmanI bought this earlier this year before my Barnes & Nobles Membership expired. It was a worthwhile purchase for personal and research purposes. Madly, Deeply: The Diaries of Alan Rickman gives a teaspoon view of the behind-the-scenes life of beloved British Actor Alan Rickman’s life. I say teaspoon because the book is obviously edited, andContinue reading “Madly, Deeply: The Diaries of Alan Rickman”
- Perdita Durango (1997)Savage. I found Perdita Durango (1997) on Tubi, and I debated for the longest time whether to watch it or not. I am so, so glad that I decided to watch it after all. What a gem of a film! Honestly, this film is a cult classic. I put it right next to Fight ClubContinue reading “Perdita Durango (1997)”
