Dear Su Yen: A Young Woman From Taiwan Discovers England And Discovers Herself

Description: Have you ever moved house and had to make a complete new start at a different school, a far away city or even in another country? I have. Like millions of people around the world I learned that the colourful and exciting dreams that we make with our finger tracing the map might turn into nights of loneliness, months of cultural miscommunication and years of financial hardship once we reach the other end. This was my immediate connection with Su Yen´s story. A bright young student in Taiwan with an overprotective father at first who turns cynical and cold with age and frustration, she is trying to find out which dream she should create and pursue for herself. After taking a joyless degree in design back home she realises that having fantasised about mediaeval buildings in Europe since childhood she has never seen any in real life. But the move to historic Oxford in Britain, where Su Yen hopes to further her studies is full of obstacles.
Do we, you might ask, in this day and age when the papers, bookshops and news bulletins are endlessly serving up heartbreaking migrant stories need yet another account of someone who left their home country behind hoping to settle in greener lands far far away? Well, I guess that Su Yen has thanked her lucky star that just when needed and she was nearly giving up her dream of life in Britain because the barriers of language, uni, money and loneliness seemed skyhigh, she struck up a friendship with a senior tutor from Oxford.
The correspondence between Su Yen and Roy weaves through the whole book, taught the disoriented Chinese girl what she needed to know in order to get through uni and master everyday life, and it is this clever twist which distinguishes Su Yen´s from other memoirs. As the young woman goes through her daily life, studies, socialising and outings in the unfamiliar environment, she pours out her heart at the friendly and patient mentor and bombards him with questions. He replies and consoles her with great British poems, a way of “you´re not the first to go through this”.
Personally, I am most grateful for this touching book: on top of a moving reminder of how difficult a fresh start in an alien culture is and how few people await us with open arms (or at all), it also paved the ground for my own understanding of English poetry. In simple terms Roy explains how Shakespeare constructed his sonnets, what Dylan Thomas knew about a Welsh village, William Blake about the Industrial Revolution or the desires of Robert and Elizabeth Barrett-Browning – now that those famous yet often misunderstood works have been put into their historical context and into colloquial and modern language I´m able to understand what was a mystery before and which would have been lost to me otherwise. And this, I believe, is the ultimate message of “Dear Su Yen”: to be open and learn from what other people and their cultures have to offer for us.

Gödel, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid

Author: Douglas R. Hofstadter

ISBN: 9780465026562
Pages: 777
Description: Douglas Hofstadter’s book is concerned directly with the nature of “maps” or links between formal systems. However, according to Hofstadter, the formal system that underlies all mental activity transcends the system that supports it. If life can grow out of the formal chemical substrate of the cell, if consciousness can emerge out of a formal system of firing neurons, then so too will computers attain human intelligence. Gödel, Escher, Bach is a wonderful exploration of fascinating ideas at the heart of cognitive science: meaning, reduction, recursion, and much more.

Secret History

Author: Brandon Sanderson

Pages: 160
Description: Mistborn: Secret History is a companion story to the original Mistborn trilogy. As such, it contains HUGE SPOILERS for the books Mistborn (The Final Empire), The Well of Ascension, and The Hero of Ages. It also contains very minor spoilers for the book The Bands of Mourning. Mistborn: Secret History builds upon the characterization, events, and worldbuilding of the original trilogy. Reading it without that background will be a confusing process at best. In short, this isn’t the place to start your journey into Mistborn. (Though if you have read the trilogy—but it has been a while—you should be just fine, so long as you remember the characters and the general plot of the books.) Saying anything more here risks revealing too much. Even knowledge of this story’s existence is, in a way, a spoiler. There’s always another secret.

Quiet Lessons for the Introvert’s Soul (Introvert Strengths Book 1)

Author: Gabriela Casineanu

Pages: 239
Description: Gabriela Casineanu is an award-winning author whose best-selling books about introverts have helped thousands of readers, world-wide, gain a clearer, stronger sense of their own potential. Her latest book, Quiet Lessons for the Introvert’s Soul, takes that inquiry into personal well-being to a deeper, more powerful level.

We all know how extroverts would go about writing a book like this—confidently proclaiming (in BOLD TYPE): “Five Proven Steps to Ensure Lifetime Success!” “The 8 Secrets of Perfect Relationships!” “Seven Ways You Sabotage Your Own Happiness and How to Fix It!” Extroverts, typically, are confident that they have the answer to your problems—and don’t mind telling you.

Casineanu’s “quiet lessons” are, instead, about reflective discovery—allowing the truth to emerge naturally from within. The book contains interviews with 11 introverts from a dozen countries. Each of the people whose stories come richly to life in this book faced and overcame difficult personal and professional challenges by drawing on strengths they initially didn’t know they possessed. To varying degrees, each needed to question their own limiting beliefs and to learn to see themselves as valuable, strong people in their own right—rather than as flawed, imperfect copies of extroverts. At the end of each interview, Casineanu highlights the strengths each interviewee discovered in his or her journey. She concludes with her own experience of self-discovery.

Casineanu calls these accounts “Introvert’s Hero Journeys”—and she’s right. I found the stories powerfully moving and thought-provoking.

This is not a book to rush through. Its purpose—and value—is in the insights that emerge for readers (introverts and extroverts) as they engage each story and then reflect on their own lives.

What also struck me was that the characteristic “introvert” strengths brought out in this book, like listening, respecting different viewpoints, acting with integrity and authenticity, working collaboratively towards shared goals, are desperately needed in the fearful, angry, and intolerant world we now struggle to live in. In a noisy world, perhaps we all need to tune into the quieter lessons of our souls.

The Miracle Morning: The Not-So-Obvious Secret Guaranteed to Transform Your Life (Before 8am)

Author: Hal Elrod

ISBN: 9780979019777
Pages: 172
Description: [A message from Robert Kiyosaki, bestselling author of ‚Rich Dad, Poor Dad‘]

„Hal Elrod is a genius and his book The Miracle Morning has been magical in my life.

„I have been in the human potential / personal development movement since 1973, when I did my first EST training and saw a whole new world of possibilities. Since then, I have studied religions, prayer, meditation, yoga, affirmation, visualization, and NLP (neuro-linguistic programming). I’ve walked on fire, and explored other „unconventional“ philosophies, some „too far out there“ to mention.

„What Hal has done with his acronym SAVERS is taken the „best practices“–developed over centuries of human consciousness development–and condensed the „best of the best“ into a daily morning ritual. A ritual that is now part of my day.

„Many people do one of the SAVERS daily. For example, many people do the E, the exercise every morning. Others do S for silence or meditation, or S for scribing, journaling every morning. But until Hal packaged SAVERS, no one was doing all six ancient ‚best practices‘ every morning.

„Miracle Morning is perfect for very busy, successful people. Going through SAVERS every morning is like pumping rocket fuel into my body, mind, and spirit… before I start my day, every day.

„As my rich dad often said, „I can always make another dollar, but I cannot make another day.“ If you want to maximize every day of your life, read Miracle Morning.“


What if you could miraculously wake up tomorrow and any–or every area of your life was transformed? What would be different? Would you be happier? Healthier? More successful? In better shape? Would you have more energy? Less Stress? More Money? Better relationships? Which of your problems would be solved?

What if I told you that there is a „not-so-obvious“ secret that is guaranteed to transform any–or literally every area of your life, faster than you ever thought possible? What if I told you it would only take 6 minutes a day?

Enter The Miracle Morning. What’s now being practiced by thousands of people around the world could perhaps be the simplest approach to creating the life you’ve always wanted. It’s been right there in front of us, but this book has finally brought it to life.

Are you ready? The next chapter of your life–the most extraordinary life you’ve ever imagined–is about to begin.

Descobre então o seu castigo: está num formigueiro, tem duas antenas e seis patas… é uma formiga!

Title: New Moon

Author: Midori Snyder

ISBN: 9780142403495
Pages: 280
Description: This was a re-read of a book read some time before joining Goodreads. I didn’t remember anything about the story other than I had enjoyed it at the time, and in fact was pleased to find I enjoyed it this time too, although in places the writing is a little clunky, for example, the writer often uses a character’s name when ‚he‘ or ’she‘ would be sufficient, and on occasion does a bit of head hopping within a scene. However, the strengths of the narration and characterisation overcame these minor issues.

To briefly summarise, the book is set in the country of Oran in the capital Beldan. Many years ago the Queen, seemingly immortal, invited in the armies of Silea, a militaristic country which we assume is nearby, to put down a rebellion or war now termed the Burning. Apart from a few whispers among the descendants of certain groups within the population which go counter to the version of the Burning given by the Queen, the real story of what had happened has been supressed. Gradually an inkling arises that makes it clear to the reader that the Queen is far from blameless, and in fact her conduct makes it clear that she is a ruthless murderer and oppressor of her own people, collaborating in the tyranny imposed by the Sileans.

For the gift of Oran is that many of the population had psychic gifts aligned with the four elements or Quarters – water, air, earth and fire. A Naming ritual imposed since the Burning means that to get work all children of the ruled classes have to be examined by Readers – a family who have collaborated with the Regime to retain their privileges as nobility. Any child found to have the aura of one of the gifts is hanged. The only person allowed officially to have a gift is the Queen herself: fire gifted and supposedly the only individual alive with such a gift. The rest are all air, water or earth related.

Things have been going badly in Oran in recent years with failed harvests, worsening oppression and grinding poverty. Unsuprisingly, this gives rise to a resistence known as the New Moon. The activities of the rebels are then made the excuse for appalling reprisals as are seen late in the story. And in addition to the officially sanctioned murders of the gifted, an individual known to the city’s teams of thieves as the Upright Man, has his own reasons for pursuing them.

The strengths of this story apart from the inventiveness of the world building is the characterisation, especially of the thieves and street children, and other working people. Slightly misleadingly, the book begins with the viewpoint of one of the Readers but it soon switches, and he only has a small part in the story. The main character is Jobber, a gangling adolescent brought up on the streets by a now deceased vagger – vaggers are a group of people who roam the land preserving elements of the ancient and suppressed Oran religion and also various fighting skills – and there are major parts played in the story by a woman who is trying to keep alive certain children whom she knows have gifts, and a Gazali woman, another of the groups who used to have a major role before the Burning, and who has an air gift. We also see enough of the Queen, the Silean Regent and his adviser to gain an impression of their indifference to or even enjoyment of the cruelty inflicted on the general populace. The street people have their own slang and the life of the city is well depicted. There is also a great twist about half way through which I will not spoil.

All in all a very enjoyable read, only held back from a full five stars by the little bit of uneveness in writing mentioned above.

Brick Lane

Author: Monica Ali

ISBN: 9780743243315
Pages: 432
Description: A captivating read from a debut novelist, Brick Lane brings the immigrant milieu of East London to vibrant life. With great poignancy, Ali illuminates a foreign world; her well-developed characters pull readers along on a deeply psychological, almost spiritual journey. Through the eyes of two Bangladeshi sisters—the plain Nazneen and the prettier Hasina—we see the divergent paths of the contemporary descendants of an ancient culture. Hasina elopes to a „love marriage,“ and young Nazneen, in an arranged marriage, is pledged to a much older man living in London.

Ali’s skillful narrative focuses on Nazneen’s stifling life with her ineffectual husband, who keeps her imprisoned in a city housing project filled with immigrants in varying degrees of assimilation. But Ali reveals a bittersweet tension between the „two kinds of love“ Nazneen and her sister experience—that which begins full and overflowing, only to slowly dissipate, and another which emerges like a surprise, growing unexpectedly over years of faithful commitment. Both of these loves have their own pitfalls: Hasina’s passionate romance crumbles into domestic violence, and Nazneen’s marriage never quite reaches a state of wedded bliss.

Though comparisons have drawn between Ali and Zadie Smith, a better comparison might be made between this talented newcomer and the work of Amy Tan, who so deftly portrays the immigrant experience with empathy and joy.
