Bridge of Birds Summary Ý 100 Misel kasutatud kirjanduslik geniaalsus tekitavad õhkkonna mis on samaaegselt nii naljakas kurb vapustav põnev kui ka täielikult vastupandamatu On kohti kus lugeja tunneb end kui naerupisarate merre sukelduvat kuid on ka hetki mil pisarate põhjuseks on kurbus Kõike kroonib lõpplahendus mis on ühtlasi jahmatav ning vägagi südantliigutav„Lindude sild” ei sarnane ühegi teise raamatuga Ja kui autor just oma hiirevurrudest tehtud kirjapintslit uuesti kätte ei võta siis ei ole olukorra paranemist lootag. This hilarious and charming book is probably the most fun bro mance I ve ever run across It gets five stars from me as a fable similar to Big Fish or The Princess Bride in tone but with way laugh out loud moments Did I already mention charmA young fellow living in ancient China has been dispatched to find help from a wise man any wise man available for a handful of copper pennies for the children of his village have collapsed with some type of plague affecting only those between the ages of 8 and 13 He must hire a sage to cure the little ones from an illness that knows how to count Number Ten Ox he is the tenth son of his father and is as strong as wellyou know can only afford a wine soaked healer called Master Li Kao As it turns out Master Li is the precise wiley criminally oriented 110 year old they need The children have accidentally been poisoned and only The Great Root of Power 1000 year old ginseng with arm like appendages can save them Now to go steal itNumber Ten Ox and Master Li set off on a series of adventures that include characters named Henpicked Ho Cut Off Their Balls Wang etc and involve trickery faked corpses and other Brer Rabbit like subterfuge The villains are over the top horrendous in uproarious ways and you ll cheer their downfalls Foodies will snicker over the detailed preparation of Porcupine Paste serve it with a gold instead of silver serving spoon and the diner will DIEIf you liked The Princess Bride you will love Bridge of Birds I highly recommend this to high school or college aged readers and anybody young at heart Fantasy is totally not my genre of choice but I applaud and understand all the wonderful awards this adventuresome book wonUpon introducing oneself we learn that it is polite to say My surname is Cantrell my personal name is LeAnne and there is a slight flaw in my character This book though is FLAWLESS Super fun

Bridge of Birds Summary Ý 100 Ammu ammu eksisteerinud eksootilises ja maagiat täis Hiinas lähevad kaks veidrat kaaslast retkele mille eesmärgiks on leida Võimas Jõujuur Kümnes Sõnn on agar kuid üsnagi naiivne noor talupoeg Li Kao on riukalik vana teadjamees kel küljes väike viga ning nõrkus riisiviina vastu Üheskoos võtavad nad ette ohtliku rännaku et Härja kodukülas elavad lapsed surmava mürgi küüsist päästa Tee viib neid kokku nähtavate ning nähtamatute koletistega ja inimestega kelle kõrval koletised kahvatuvad mõr. Badass ingenious drunken master style exploring Asian culture rocks the bambooIt s uniue and rare to find such individual writings and the man just wrote 4 novels I would compare him with Pratchett and I don t know if I ve ever done it before and it s mainly because of the underlying subtility as there are other humoristic authors with laughs dynamic and plotting but how this thing is written just blows my mindTaking just two stereotypical character tropes and creating such an intense densely packed clever funny intelligent and incomparable work a true masterpiece is amazing and the readers luck of the sheer coincidence that a late author such as Hughart decided to bestow a milestone of literature to the worldI wish I would know about Asian culture tradition and mythology to be able to enjoy all the innuendos depth subtility and wisdom Hughart includes in his outstanding series and as if there wasn t enough to blame publishers for they sabotaged Hughart who wanted to write parts of it but couldn t get certainly published and didn t write them because of that Ok possibly there might be the readers to accuse too but the evil industry seems to be a much better target and I am a reader too so let s better stay with that instead of starting to think about the impact of mainstream compulsion horror on both pages of the reading front Hughart said later that it could have also been that he couldn t have had material without repeating himself but that sounds like resignation than the truth as Asian culture is a treasure chest of ideasHowever it happened it s a disgrace that there could have been parts instead of an implosion of creativity and I hope that the time for unconventional alcoholic cynic old wise philosophizing not European or US detectives with deep social criticism will come one day It would be a great alternative to those vampire werewolf emo zombie hordes or the ultimate stereotypes known from the psychothriller and crime genreTropes show how literature is conceptualized and created and which mixture of elements makes works and genres uniue

Bridge of Birds Summary Ý 100 Varliku matriarhi ajaloo julmima hertsogi Tasapisi tuleb arusaamine et enne oma ülesande täitmist peavad nad lahendama ühe jahmatava mõistatuse mille algus on tuhat aastat enne nende mõlema sündiÜhendades vanahiina ajaloo ja erinevate perioodide vältel valitsenud kommete raames fantaasia ning folkloori on autor loonud haruldase ning imekauni teose mis annab Lääne lugejatele võimaluse näha maailma läbi iidsete idamaalaste silmade „Linnusild” kujutab endast meistritööd – jutt ise ning selle loo. This book is insane Insanely fun that is The humour really drives the plot forward with a gag a minute just rolling through one on top of the other It was hilarious Set in Medieval China the children of the village of Ku Fu have been struck with a plague and pure hearted Number Ten Ox has been sent to find a wise man for help We need a wise man who can tell us how a plague can learn to count Enter Master Li who repeatedly during the story introduces himself as My surname is Li and my personal name is Kao and there is a slight flaw in my character We could go ahead and try to guess what exactly Master Li s personal flaw is but really we can have a few good guesses as both Master Li and Number Ten Ox embark on a uest that sees them lying stealing cheating and swindling their way across China all in the name of the poor plague ridden children of Ku Fu There are really no depths our two heroes will not stoop to or rather Master Li will stoop to in the name of the greater good whether it be convincing a merchant to buy a gold shitting goat or bartering an ear that gives the children of one s enemies leprosy In the process of searching for the cure for the children of Ku Fu they will also uncover a 1000 year old mystery which needs to be solved for there to be any chance of ridding the village of the plague On their way they will come across many interesting characters with the most elegant names like Pretty Ping or Fainting Maid or Lotus Cloud and my personal favourite Cut Off Their Balls WangThe humour had my family members raising their eyebrows as I sat shaking with mirth For instance do you know how a gravedigger avoids burying his shadow The obvious answer would seem that you can t bury your shadow But Pawnbroker Feng and Ma the Grub have a sensible solution Careful with that shovel yelped Ma the Grub leaping back in fear You almost trapped my shadow inside the grave Why don t you tie your shadow to your body with a cord like a sensible person Pawnbroker Fang grumbledAs you may have guessed by now the tone is rather light hearted throughout But one should not expect that this is therefore a light easy brainless read You need to pay attention The book employs an economy of words that sees the most insignificant detail as important for advancing the plot from encounter to encounter following it s own convoluted internal logic What is these details come back to play a part in the larger story As zany as the story appears you can actually solve the 1000 year old mystery if you ask the right uestions and pay attention to the dialogue I did not guess the ending because I was totally distracted from how important certain clues were But they were there and I was kicking myself for discarding them So I guess a reread is in order at some stageAnyway I enjoyed the book and my advice for other readers is don t read when you are tired You will enjoy the humour and the story a lot while alert4 stars
