- Reader from Singapore - Hilary has done the impossible - write a sequel as good as or even better than Wolf HallHilary Mantel has achieved the impossible – write a sequel that’s arguable as good as if not even better than the truly magnificent “Wolf Hall (WH)”. Readers who have wrestled with and conquered the linguistic difficulties of its predecessor - the ambiguous use of the pronoun “He/he” and the multiple Thomases and Marys problem - will have the wherewithal to tackle similar challenges (thankfully less severe) presented in “Bring Up The Bodies (BUTB)”. Mantel’s sentences aren’t always straightforward – they are often idiosyncratic, so those in for a quick read should be ready to adapt. But you readily forgive, accept, even relish her occasional waywardness because she clearly has the pizzazz and the literary chops to carry it off.
The dark tale she weaves of murder, treachery and deceit in high places is so focused, dramatic and intense it just builds and builds towards its inevitable climax – you could almost feel the noose tightening around Anne Boleyn’s pretty little neck as she flounders in her duty to produce a male heir while King Henry loses his patience and cavorts with the queen-in-waiting, Jane Seymour. Thomas Cromwell knows which side his bread is buttered on. He reads the tea leaves as they fall and orchestrates the outcome the King desires. There is less ambiguity to his character here than in WH – he is deep into his job and doesn’t need to sell himself to the King. As many readers have noted, BUTB stands on its own merit but those who have read WH first would undoubtedly enjoy it even more – certain references to Cromwell’s past not given much elaboration here pick up from their full treatment in the earlier book.
WH won the Booker. Then BUTB did it again – the other shortlisted novels pale in contrast and were never in the running. I can’t wait for Mantel to finish the last of her trilogy and go on to score a hattrick. Now wouldn’t that be something !
- C. Barbour "Tablet Girl" - Awesome toy!Why does anyone feel the need to write a two page review, when it can be summed up in just one word? Well, maybe three~ awesome, awesome, awesome! ! I had a Coby Kyros two years, and decided to upgrade. The technology has been so perfected, there is no comparison. I asked the question on this site about Flash, because I really wanted that, and was told by everyone that Android tablets DON'T have flash. I found out you CAN get a really nice app now called ~ Photon Flash & Browser for Android ~ but only on Google Store. Amazon apps doesn't carry it yet. I have been using it all day, and it seems to be working great. I like some things better on the browser too. So go out and get it, or better yet, order it from Amazon, ~ super fast, great price, free shipping, no tax, what more can I say? The price @ $299 is the best you can get. The new Tab 3 has all the same bells and whistles but costs lots more. I always check on "Amazon reviews" , and your reviews helped me decide to purchase this tablet. So I want to help others to enjoy this great Sammy.
- A. Kenesky - Worked for me!I used this product when I was 16 weeks pregnant. I followed the directions exactly as stated. It rather quickly turned a dark color, indicating a boy. At my 20 week ultrasound, it was confirmed that we were having a boy! When reading the results, I can see how some people could read the color as either, because of light shining through the liquid. When I read the results I put a white towel behind to prevent light from shining through and altering the color. This made it much easier to read!
- Felix Li - Anyone is innocent until proven guiltyUpdated May 11th:
I've been following this controversy since it broke out, partly because I'm Chinese, partly because I'm interested in seeking out truth. I've finally gotten hold of the book from my local library. After reading it in one day, I would like to say this is an excellent book.
First things first. In the United States of America, everyone is innocent until proven guilty. The burden of proof lies in the prosecutor, not the accused. If you accuse Fu of lying, then you have to show conclusive evidence that she did so. So far none of the "evidences" shown are conclusive, for several reasons: First, their authenticity are questionable. E.g.the Suzhou University letter. Someone claimed to have a screen shot, but screen shot is easily forgable and therefore inadmissible as evidence. Someone also claimed that Lane Sharman left a comment on NYT, but anyone with an email address can register on NYT and pose as Lane Sharman.
Second, and the most important, is the argument that "Fu lied" is based on faulty logic. To show why, I will quote a blog I read earlier in the comments section of an article:
"Here is the logical fallacy behind the accusations against Ping Fu:
A causes B. B. So A.
This is absurd because, according to this logic: catching cold causes headache. I have a headache. Therefore I must have caught cold.
This is wrong, because my headache could be caused by other things, like migraine.
Almost all accusations against Fu have this fatal logic flaw, e.g.: "Liars remember dates wrongly. You remembered a date wrongly. You are a liar." In fact, people could have remembered dates wrongly for a number of reasons, e.g. memory mistakes. To say they are liars is logically unsound. People listed many such "evidences" on Amazon etc., claiming Fu's book is a complete lie, yet they invariably contain the above fallacy, and would be rejected by any judge in an actual court of law."
(The above is from rosesofmay382 dot blogspot dot com )
That threw most of the "evidences" out of the window. But I'm going to be extra generous here: let's assume it can be proven that Fu made false statements, it still needs proving that she lied. According to the Oxford English Dictionary, lie is "an intentionally false statement", Cambridge Dictionary defines lying as "to say or write something that is not true in order to deceive someone", in both cases the "intent to deceive" has to be present. Merely mistaking the color of a mailbox, or a military car, or the menu of dinner, is not lying.
It saddens me that many overseas Chinese, having survived the horrors of Cultural Revolution, were nevertheless scarred by its way of thinking, despite moving to a new country and starting a new life. In the land of free, one is innocent until proven guilty. But in the CR, it is exactly the opposite. You have to prove you are not a anti-revolutionary, i.e. the burden of proof is on you, not the government or Red Guards. You have to confess, and if the interrogator doubts your account, you have the obligation to prove yourself are innocent. It was this wicked logic that produced so many tragedies, e.g. Peng Dehuai and Liu Shaoqi became anti-revolutionary criminals, as they were suddenly confronted of many "historical crimes" （历史问题） which they didn't do, yet cannot prove that they didn't. By pressing Ping Fu to produce "proofs" that she didn't lie, the accusers were behaving exactly like Red Guards, their former tormentors, which is sad. Fortunately, in a civilized and just society, the opposite is true. I don't have to prove to anyone that I am innocent, it is up to the accuser, be it government or individual, to furnish conclusive evidence. If they cannot prove, beyond reasonable doubt, that I am guilty, then I am not guilty.
It is unfortunate that some people on this forum have their mindsets firmly stuck in the CR, despite having lived in the USA for a long time. I hope that one day they would realize their mistake. Once they are no longer imprisoned by this way of thinking, they will be truly at peace with themselves. I wish them best of luck.
Below is my original review, published earlier:
The authenticity issue has been way overblown. I've read the book from the cover to cover, and I found that the contents that raised concern was less than 2% of the book. The other 98% was fairly uncontroversial. I think it's pretty good for a book of this category. I challenge any doubter here to write his/her own memoir, in English, with a ghost writer, and subject it to the same rigorous fact-checking that Fu's book has gone through, and see if it can achieve an accuracy of 98%. The doubters on this forum has nitpicked the book for 3 months and yet could only come up with 20 or something possible mistakes. For a non-academic book of 274 pages, that actually proves it is quite rigorous.
Not to mention that, a lot of the "mistakes" are innocuous ones, e.g.the color of a car. Most likely it was Meimei Fox who wrote that paragraph. Not knowing China's military cars are usually green, she put black instead. A mistake like that cannot be more harmless. Does it negate the rest 99.9% of the book? Sure not.
To give another example. A lot of people would remember the date of their first day at work. But do they remember the color of the shoes their boss was wearing? Or the second dish of their dinner? Sure it was an important day, but even for important events like that, one cannot remember all the details, or get them all right. So if they make a mistake, say, by getting the color wrong, does that mean they are liars? Does that mean their whole memoir is fake? You can draw your own conclusions.
I was going to give it 4 stars but seeing so many 1 star reviewers who obviously didn't even read the book, I decided to give it a 5 star instead.
