Bu harika bir kitaptı. Dokunmak, hareket etmek, duygusal olmak. Ağladım. Çok hızlı bir okuma. Ben atları severim, bu yüzden burada sevilmeyecek olan ne!
Bu kitap beni çabucak çekti, ama tahminen tahminimce Galileo'nun üretkenliği son yıllarda azaldıkça sona doğru ilerledi. Sobel, Galileo'nun astronomik bulgularını, liderleri hayatının işini çürüten bir inançla uzlaştırmaya yönelik mücadelesini ele geçiriyor. Daha önce Galileo'nun bir birey olarak ne kadar tutkulu olduğunu, mızmızcılıkla sınırlanmış olduğunu önceden anlamadım.
Of Poseidon was an interesting new take on the mermaid – excuse me, Syrena – myth. Although, I have to mention one thing that’s been bothering me: what do the women wear as tops in Syrena form? I’m fairly certain it’s never mentioned and it’s been driving me a little batty :P Of Poseidon starts out in a majorly depressing way and yet, I felt like I wasn’t saddened enough by it. Grossed out, sure, but not sad. I appreciated that Emma had her own way of dealing with it and her own grieving process though. Some might think that she got over it too quickly, but I don’t really think that’s a judgment you can pass on anyone else since we all have different processes. I loved all the Syrena lore and learning about their past and the way they run things now. I always love learning history about imaginary cultures. I really liked Rayna and Toraf. They were fun side characters that I ended up caring for just as much as Galen and Emma in the end. Speaking of Galen and Emma…Emma was strong-willed, stubborn, clumsy, and completely hung up on Galen. I love a good “I don’t need a man” kick-a** female lead, but I also appreciate the ones who go all gooey over a guy since it reminds me of being that age. What I didn’t quite appreciate was the relationship itself. Galen was a nice guy and I liked him well enough, but it seems like the readers knew more about him than Emma did. It ended up making the relationship feel a little forced. I’ve heard people complain about the Emma=First person/Galen=Third person thing, but it really didn’t bother me at all. I barely noticed it, actually. Maybe I’m just not quite as sensitive when it comes to those things, though :P The Nutshell: Of Poseidon is a fantastic start to the series. Sure, I had some problems with the relationship but it wasn’t enough to detract from the story itself. If you want a new mermaid story with a little scary and a lot of kissing (read: angst) then Of Poseidon is definitely for you. Hit
