What I'm Reading Right Now #40



Quote of the day: 
If you shut up truth, and bury it underground, it will but grow. -Emile Zola 



Its not often that I read a book centered around cryptography -writing and breaking codes, so coming across this particular book proved specially intriguing. The writer is Chinese author, Mai Jia, who has managed to conjure quite a compelling and breathtaking story, and in reviews he is said to have created a unique genre that combines meta-fiction, with code-breaking and historical contexts.

The book is titled 'Decoded', and it is Mai's debut novel, though not a detailed spy thriller it has its highs and lows. The story is historical and revolves around Rong Jinzhwen, from a family of outstanding academics. His mental abilities abound for the most part of the book, discovered as a genius from a young age, one does not really get a sense of the main character even till the very end, as the story delves into historical abstractions, hidden contexts, manipulations and selfless love.

It is an unusual read and may prove to be a hard one to put down once started.

  3. Mostly been reading children's literature lately, in my role as a teacher. I love some of those stories very much. Did just finish The Taste of Apple Seeds, a romantic German novel by Katherina Hegena translated into English. I enjoyed the sense of place that featured prominently in the story.

  12. Best spell caster of the year revealed by google. save your crumbling marriage now.

    BEST AND GENUINE SPELL CASTER ONLINE TO HELP SAVE BROKEN MARRIAGE AND BROKEN RELATIONSHIP
    Am Jerry miler, I live in London, and I’m happily married with a lovely wife and three children. I had a very big problem with my wife few months ago, to the extent that she left the house with our kids to her parents' for almost 5 months. All efforts to bring them back proved abortive. Friends and Family were all in concern and my very close mate gave me an advice concerning a spell caster, and he quote; “There’s someone who can handle your situation, he’s always ready and able to do anything related to spiritual matters, I searched for a spell caster on the internet, his advert was everywhere, i found his number and called him on his mobile number +2347052958531. Although I never believed in spell casting, but he convinced me and I had no choice than to follow his advice, because I never dream of losing my lovely wife and I was desperate. So I did all what he told me to do and i did. He told me that I’ll get my wife back in two days after the spell is completed. I was skeptical. He casted the spell for me and i was so anxious waiting to see or hear from her, until the second day when my wife called and said she was coming HOME…..It was like a joke to me!!! That’s how I got my family back through spiritual means and our relationship is now stronger than ever. One of the price I was asked to pay was to tell it to people around me that problems like this, can always be solved by Dr Ewan. And this is his email too if you wish to contact him and solve your problem too covenantsolutiontemple@gmail.com , my advice to you out there is to visit this great Dr Ewan and tell him your problems. He's capable of handling anything spiritual and spell casting. Thanks a lot for saving my marriage. covenantsolutiontemple@gmail.com. You can also add him up on watsapp on +2349057353987, you can also call him on his mobile number +2347052958531
