    ANOTHER COMPELLING STORY FROM LIZ ROSENBERG!

    From the author of The Laws of Gravity, Home Repair, and other works of fiction non-fiction comes a historical coming-of-age novel set in Singapore during the 1920s. The Moonlight Palace by Liz Rosenberg is the story of Agnes Hussein, a seventeen-year-old, who lives with her grandfather's youngest brother in a crumbling palace which stands as a symbol of their rich heritage. Uncle Chachi, as he is fondly called, is the last surviving male heir in the family. Her grandparents are deceased, and her parents and older brother along with several other family members died in the flu pandemic of 1918.The Kampong Glam Palace in which Agnes lives was a big one with many rooms. Some of the rooms were occupied by relatives who do not pay anything but there were several other boarders who pay to stay in the rooms. It forms an essential part of income for the maintenance and upkeep of the palace. These paying guests come and go, none staying for too long but when three young men stayed... 4/5 the GreatReads!

    A Sweet and Short Read

    I must admit that my choice of this month's Kindle First novel was a difficult one. I chose The Moonlight Palace simply because of its exotic locale and time period, Singapore in the 1920s. However the author, Liz Rosenberg, immediately drew me into her tale about a plucky orphan who with her extended family lives in their ancestral home, a once great palace now in shambles. Rosenberg creates such wonderful characters and such an evocative setting that even its rather slim plot and too tidy ending can be forgiven.I found Agnes Hussein, the teenaged heroine, especially well drawn. As narrator, Agnes confides her story with disarming direct address and droll humor. Her eccentric family, equal parts loving and exasperating, also charm. Yet what I liked the most about The Moonlight Palace is its finely crafted setting. The author presents it with exquisite imagery. We see Singapore in monsoon season when brightly colored umbrellas open up like flowers. We hear the lusty mating... 5/5 C.R. Hurst - See all my reviews, September 2, 2014

    Memory is one part perception, one part intuition, and one part pure invention.

    The Kampong Glam Palace in 1920's Singapore lives as the whimsical perverse holder of the family dreams for Agnes. At 17 she has appointed herself as the savior of the palace little knowing that every one else in her life has assumed this very role. The characters in her family are drawn in that loving fashion that sees flaws and idiosyncrasies clearly. I especially love Nei-Nei Down, the grandmother who lives o the ground floor who is known for a mysterious turtling noise and deeply held beliefs. Agnes herself is a willful , witty girl who is literate without much attention to education and charming in the back handed fashion of the deeply truthful. She is a citizen of Singapore as only a child of British, Chinese, and Singaporan descent might be. The prose is a satisfying blend of the vagaries of memory and the flamboyance of today.Singapore in 1920 is poised on the brink of global change as opposing forces of chinese vie for dominence and Japan seems to slumber... 5/5 Amelia Gremelspacher - See all my reviews, September 2, 2014

    An astonishing, mesmerizing, disturbing book

    0 5/5 BB "Editor, www.neglectedbooks.com" (APO, AE, United States) - See all my reviews This review is from: The Invention of Solitude (Paperback) It's hard for to say which is Auster's greater achievement: "The New York Trilogy" or this, but I think I side with this book. Has anyone taken as strikingly original and also successfully realized approach to the memoir? I just know that when I came to the dramatic revelation of the first half of this book, I was so shocked I dropped the book. I am a little suspicious of Auster's artistry--he is such an absorbing, fascinating, mesmerizing writer that I wonder what tricks he may be playing on me. But with each of his books, and this one in particular, there is always a sensation having been taken out of the world, slightly disturbed, and then placed back into it. For a while, you see things differently, and any writer who can shake us up that effectively deserves our praise and attention. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , July 20, 2001

    Master's piece on Solitude.

    In "Portrait of an Invisible Man", the first part of Paul Auster's fascinating memoir "Invention of Solitude", Auster writes about his father's life as a means of helping himself come to terms with his father's death. Auster remembers his father as an elusive figure in his life, a truant from life emotionally detached and disconnected from family ("he had managed to keep himself at a distance from life"). To Auster, it seemed that the world's attempts to embrace his father simply bounced off him without ever making a breakthrough - it was impossible to enter his solitude. The theme of Solitude runs powerfully through this disturbing, mesmerising memoir.Auster is conscious of how little knowledge he actually has of his father's early childhood years, how unenlightened he is with regard to his father's inner life, how few clues he has to his father's character and how little understanding of the underlying reasons for his father's immunity from the world at large. Through an... 5/5 Michael Murphy (Glasgow, Scotland.) - See all my reviews, December 23, 2003

    A Mystery, a Whale, Invnetion and Memory

    Autobiography -more often truer to form than substance- seems to repeal one's pretensions concerning identity while legitimizing a sense of purpose. Paul Auster's "Invention of Solitude" is perhaps one of the very best ever written: If Henry Adams attempted to offer credence to his generation than Auster is the heir apparent for the 20th c. Arranged in two parts, "Invention" and "Book of Memory," the novella-length memoirs center around two themes; familial and personal loss. The passing of a father whose mysterious motives and outlook later occupies the subplot of a mystery and the author's search for its truthful sources in "Invention," while the second (written when the author was at an all-time low) is a meditation upon his own son, which is interwoven with study of Collidi's Pinnochio and, ostensibly, Jonah. Auster is as much at home quoting a Judaic scholar as Pascal, Tolstoy or a close acquaintance.

    Penguin Books

    Amazingly Interesting and Helpful

    This is one of those rare books that is not only a joy to read, but also immensely helpful. It can help all of us with something that is at once troublesome and worrisome: our memory. It does this with ease, not teaching us some grueling rote memory technique, but one that is easy, natural and intuitive. Yet Moonwalking with Einstein turns out to not be exclusively a how-to book on memory. So what is it?Well, yes, it is about memory and how to improve it, but it is at once a history of techniques, a description of what memory is and what can go wrong with it, and also a running narrative of how the author, a journalist himself with no special memory skills, becomes one of the most proficient memory athletes in America.I'd learned a mnemonic device to aid memorization decades ago while in college, and found it to be helpful, but for some reason I'd abandoned the technique once I graduated.

    Learning memorization through Foers Journey!

    Slowly over time, it has become an increasingly painful realization that I am forgetting things more and more. The fact that I'm constantly misplacing my wallet drives my fiance crazy. He will call me at work to remind me to pick up certain groceries on my way home, and I'll completely forget. It is frustrating and a bit on the annoying side. I even forget things at work, which makes my job more difficult.I started doing some research on memory, and came across a book entitled, "Moonwalking with Einstein: The Art and Science of Remembering Everything". The concept of this book seemed very interesting, so I purchased it and began to read it. I must admit, I was quite impressed. I had no idea that it was even possible to memorize 1,528 digits in an hour. Is a human brain really capable of such things?

    Now THIS is the kind of "self help" book that this Baby Boomer appreciated!

    Whether you have memory problems (can't recall the name of someone you met a week ago?) or not, you're likely to improve your memory after reading this book. Even if you don't - but odds are you will - it makes for fascinating reading.It definitely was a major aid for me and I do think of it as a unique "self help" book, one that can have immediate results, helping to make life easier, alleviate tricky memory issues and more. I think it is important to disclose that I'm a Baby Boomer and my memory seems to have worsened with age. I used to recall the name of nearly everyone I met as well as both major and minor actors and actresses, all of my teachers (from kindergarten through high school) as well as the first and last names of every one of my high school classmates. I could recall even tiny details of books read long ago.But Moonwalking with Einstein goes far beyond remembering the names of acqaintances.

    A wonderful tale of grit and courage

    The Kingdom of the Sun and Moon by Lowell H. Press is a wonderful tale of grit and courage. Nesbit and Sommer are two little mice who live in Long Meadow. As anticipated, the eldest of the two, Sommer, is soon drafted into the Konig's guard. It is what the young mouse had always dreamt off. But, instead of the expected honour and patriotism the young mouse longed for as part of the Eagle Guards, he soon discovers things are not quit as they should be. With the threat of Emperor Wolfsmilch's imminent invasion of the Kingdom, Sommer quickly finds out just how hard it is to know who to trust.While Sommer is taken to the Palace to serve his Konig, Nesbit meanwhile is getting himself into a barrel of trouble. Banished from his beloved Long Meadow, he is now a fugitive and has become an enemy of the Konig.What I liked about the bookI liked so many things about the book.

    Exciting Story in a Magical Setting

    Lowell H. Press has written an inventive novel about a hierarchy of mice living in the gardens and secret interior spaces of a castle inspired by the Schönbrunn Palace in Vienna, Austria.The colony’s king cares little for his subjects and is mostly interested in taking the food they save throughout the year for his own use during the winter months.Two brothers, Sommer and Nesbit, discover that all is not what it seems, including the king’s purported fear of a pending invasion of the colony by a massive army of woodland mice.Sommer, who is drafted by the king’s minions for a suicide mission on the colony’s behalf and Nesbit, who insults the king and flees into the dangerous forest, take different approaches to survival and justices. Sommer becomes a cadet commander, while Nesbit becomes known as either a worker of magic of an exceptionally lucky mouse.Set in a 1700s world, "The Kingdom of the Sun and Moon" is a... 5/5 M. R.

Credit : Sintra, Portugal via Bigstock In 1809, Lord Byron penned a letter to his friend Francis Hodgson, writing, “I must just observe that the village of Cintra in Estremadura is the most beautiful in the world.” This fairytale Portugal town sitting at the edge of Europe, has charmed countless visitors for centuries. The Romans made it a place of cult moon worshiping, naming it “Cynthia” after the goddess of the moon. Since 1840, Pena Palace has been the highlight as one of Europe’s most fantastic palaces, surrounded by mystical Pena Park, filled with a variety of trees and exotic plants from the former colonies of the Portuguese empire, ponds, fountains, and black swans.
