nouranaimi Earlier today @kemzbooks posted a very important writing tip on paying attention to small details, it reminded me of the discussion my mother and I had the other day on what Virginia Woolf calls the 'unrecorded gestures': "And I began to read the book again, and read how Chloe watched Olivia put a jar on a shelf and say how it was time to go home to her children. That is a sight that has never been seen since the world began, I exclaimed. And I watched too, very curiously. For I wanted to see how Mary Carmichael set to work to catch those unrecorded gestures, those unsaid or half-said words". I wonder how many sights, how many unsaid words, gestures and moments we are missing by not paying attention, and what would those "never been seen" yet scenes be! That is really interesting, and inspiring! 2mon

  •   inthescarlet My dear @nouranaimi here I am finally ;D firsr of all I want to apologize with for my terrible late in answerin' you to the splendid movie review about "The Book Thief" and then thankin' you again for the extraordinary and most pleaseful attention you paid to my texts. Well then, as I already wrote you, I read your "The Book Thief" review and the first thing comin' in mind while I was readin' it has been "I'd really like to see it once more". I loved in particular some interestin' definitions you gave some characters in order to describe 'em more properly accordin/ 2mon
  •   inthescarlet @nouranaimi to your personal taste, which I actually realized it's mine too..."the thrunderstorm mother" is the best definition for the splendid role played by such an intense and talented actress like Emily Watson (I began appreciatin' her as Bess in Lars von Trier's "Breaking the Waves"); or tue 2mon
  •   inthescarlet @nouranaimi or the kind hearted father played by the always amazing Geoffrey Rush (I really can't get his speech therapist character in Tom Hooper's "The King's Speech" out of my mind), not to mention the crucial interest you give to the WORD itself...personally I truly madly deeply love the Max and Liesel scene about seein' with someone else's eyes or WORDS. "In the jewish culture, already as children, we're all taught that a specific thing exists because there's a WORD supportin' it, both grafically and meaningly...without words we'd lose our capability of expression, and without expression we'd stop bein' humans..." these are not his right WORDS ;) but Max's speech ti Liesel is simply extraordinary just because it tremendously true...without words we'll probably, not sayin' surely, stop bein' humans...sentence which it's perfectly linked to the last one spoke by Death itself "I'm amazed by humans", as it could mean even Death (beside to God the supernatural being everyone fears and "respects" most) adfirmed its own onthological existance because of mankind itself...Emotionally I'm so deeply in touch to Liesel, Max and the brave little Rudy (I was so charmed and moved, both to fun and tears, at the "race-for-a-kiss scene", that kiss he'll receive only after dead), little, but not childish as the most part of adults shown along the movie. Liesel and Rudy feel constrained to grow up earlier not only for the World War II surroundin' and slowly chainin' up their lives, but (I think) also by the general adulthood stupidity and un-careness about their easiest daily emotional needings (one of the scenes I love most is when Rudy's watchin' his father leavin' him and his family for war...In this scene he 's dressed like a little soldier, a little Heart-Innocence Fighter, whose facial espressions seem communicatin' both pride and regret, fear for the immediate future and mind strenght and careness for what/who remained at home, first of all Liesel.) Btw the only three adults out of this logic are properly Geoffrey Rush, Emily Watson (the thunderstorm mother ;) ) and Rudy's mother. 2mon
  •   inthescarlet @nouranaimi I really wanna thank you for sharin' your thoughts and emotions with his really splendid review, which literally gave me the possibility of thinkin' more and better about some themes of the movie and, most of all, the want to watch it once more. You 're very talented. I'm serious. ;) Where can I read the others? 2mon
  •   nouranaimi @inthescarlet Flavio, thank you so much for your wonderful comments and words, I am really happy you liked it. Your comment made me think about some scenes deeply as well. Geoffrey Rush is truly amazing and so is Emily Watson, who was thunderstorm like yet kindhearted as well. For my other reviews, I will post the link here for you on my bio, and once you're done ler me know so that I post the other one (they are two and I can post one at a time) or you can check it on the blog from April's reviews. . The other reviews are of movies I truly love, epically Bride (I will post it's link) is a very dear movie to me.. hope you like it ;) 2mon

nouranaimi Retreating into Virginia Woolf's .. "But what were you doing on the fifth of April 1868, or the second of November 1875, she would look vague and say that she could remember nothing. For all the dinners are cooked; the plates and cups washed; the children sent to school and gone out into the world. Nothing remains of it all. All has vanished. No biography or history has a word to say about it.", " It was disappointing not to have brought back in the evening some important statement, some authentic fact." ... That is my personal pursuit of finding and recording something valuable I get from each and every day. #aroomofonesown #virginiawoolf #instamood #instabooks #books #planner #diary 2mon

nouranaimi It's Mama's  Check the details in her account @muneerakubaisi .. Today I had a great conversation with @inthescarlet about #annekarenina and he was telling me: "...When I finished it I did felt the sensation I've given a pearl secret I had to shelter into my soul from everything possible rotten ruins outside of itself" I juat loved the way he put it. Then I saw Mama's theme is exactly what @inthescarlet t was saying! It is all about#pearls & #annekarenina ! 2mon

nouranaimi Another treasure in hand ! Starting new #janeeyre by #charlottebronte Even though I happened to see the movie before reading the book it was that much amazing that I can't wait to immerse myself within its pages ! Check my review on the movie in participation with @kummam for #kemzmovies on: http://www.kemzmovies.com/2014/04/movie-review-jane-eyre-2011.html 3mon

  •   ponix_m64 @nouranaimi doneyour words have intense and magical attraction that motivate me to know more about it "janeeyre" 3mon
  •   nouranaimi @ponix_m64 I am so happy you liked  it is beautiful really, you should watch it!  3mon
  •   reading_glasses The book is amazing! A rereading of Jane eyre from a feminist perspective is much more interesting! 3mon
  •   reading_glasses Look into Gilbert and gubar's Mad woman in the attic for further insight on Jane eyre and mr. Rochester's wife! 3mon
  •   nouranaimi @reading_glasses I am really enjoying it, though I saw the movie but the book is really captivating me! So rich in words, meanings and passion. The version I have has an introduction written by Lucy Hughes-Hallett where she mentions The Madwoman in the Attic, and the explanation she gives about the relation of Jane Eyre and Bertha Mason is interesting! I should check it! 3mon

nouranaimi Anna Karenina, what can I possibly say .. It is hard for me to let go of this book, hard to part from it. During the course time of reading Anna Karenina, I wished if I have read it in Belle Époque hotel in Baden Baden. There exactly I wanted to be, to retreat and read the book completely. Anna Karenina is not a book I have read once in a lifetime, rather is a chapter of life I have lived. The other day I quoted Azar Nafisi saying that to read a novel one must inhale the experience; well, I have not just inhaled this book, but I have lived each and every word and sentence of it. Not only the book, all the people I have met and discussed Anna Karenina with in the course time of reading it, the state of mind I have been in, the moments I have lived, all the sentences and passages I have underlined, and the pages I have dog-eared... What possibly can I say! Shall I tell you of Anna herself, or Vronsky, or Karenin, or Levin, or Kitty .. Or of me! Is it fair enough to put it in words, in some lines! It needs hours and hours of conversations! .. Let me just say it in short: yes, I do justify Anna.

nouranaimi "You can't start out again in life, that's a carriage ride you only take once, but with a book in your hand, no matter how confusing and perplexing it might be, once you've finished it, you can always go back to the beginning; if you like, you can read it through again, in order to figure out what you couldn't understand before, in order to understand life, .."

  •   reading_glasses A fine balance by mistry is an amazing book! 3mon
  •   nouranaimi @reading_glasses It is indeed! I happened to read it by the time I was travelling to Pakistan before 5 or 6 years, it was so overwhelming, like seeing the book in reality, and recalling each and every detail I read in the book in Karachi's everyday life. I mean the atmosphere the people and the stories. Just amazing, it has left a great impact on me! 3mon
