Tình Cha Bóng Cả Cuộc Đời - Cuộc Sống Diệu Kỳ Trực tuyến Người đọc

Sách được viết bởi Tác giả: Đan Phượng

I finished this book a month ago, but have delayed giving a review because the task seemed so beyond me. Put simply this is one of the most disturbing and difficult histories I have ever read. That said, it is also one of the most revelatory as well. Author James Bradley's father was one of the six men who planted the flag on Iwo Jima and is featured in the most iconic photo of World War II. Bradley's research into his father's life and the war he fought is recorded in Bradley's excellent Flags of our Fathers and Flyboys. In undertaking The Imperial Cruise, Bradley sought to understand the causes of World War II. If the war in the Pacific began with the bombing of Pearl Harbor, what led to that? If Pearl Harbor was the blast that started the war, what lit the fuse? In seeking this answer, Bradley uncovers a secret diplomatic mission ordered by Teddy Roosevelt to the Far East in the early years of the 20th Century. Roosevelt, through Taft, encourages Japan to undertake a policy of military expansionism, a policy intended to benefit U.S. interests. In ordering this mission, Roosevelt sowed seeds in the wind that would reap the whirlwind decades later. If Bradley had confined his work to simply giving an account of this "imperial cruise", he would have done enough. Yet Bradley turns from his history's central narrative to fill out the broader theme of American Exceptionalism, Manifest Destiny, and its roots in a shockingly ubiquitous belief among America's elite in Anglo-Saxon supremacy. A cursory survey of these concepts is a part of any American History course, but the scope to which Bradley plumbs these depths is surprising and shocking. Obviously racism is and has always been a huge part of the American identity, but Bradley sheds new light on some of its origins and applications in the minds and actions of America’s founders and presidents. Of special interest was Bradley’s account of the Spanish American War and America’s Nazi-like atrocities in Cuba and the Philippines. The Imperial Cruise is dense with heavy concepts and raw information. This is a book that bears reading and re-reading.

I have to be honest and say that it took me a while to finish this book as I am not a big fan of scary stories. The story was very well written and it had me in suspense the whole time. The author does a phenomenal job describing the surroundings which helped me get a better picture of the hotel and the characters. There were some parts that were pretty scary and a little freaky for me, but a very good story over all. The characters were well developed, although I didn't fall in love with any of them. I guess it’s just that kind of story. The White Horse Inn is known for its ghost sightings and things that go bump in the night. Digger and his paranormal crew plan a weekend paranormal ghost hunt to cash in on some money, but Digger also has personal reasons to revisit the Inn. Kendra, Digger’s teenage daughter is all into drawing characters in her drawing pad and avoiding her father. Kendra holds grudges against her father because she has been the parent in the family ever since her mother died when she was a little girl. There are several parts in the book that are pretty scary so I suggest reading this book with a light on at night, but then again, I’m a wimp when it comes to scary books and movies. The ending left me wanting more. I know the author wanting us to use our imaginations, but I feel like, if I read a book, I want to be told what happens and not left up to me to figure it out. Other than that I thought the book was pretty good. If you are into scary books and movies, then I suggest you read this book. http://www.onceuponatwilight.com/2011...
