„I ​had no illusions about love… It came, it went, it left casualties or it didn't. People weren't meant to be together forever, regardless of what the songs say.” Remy doesn't believe in love. And why should she? Her romance novelist mother is working on her fifth marriage, and her father, a ’70s hippie singer, left her with only a one-hit wonder song to remember him by. Every time Remy hears „This Lullaby,” it feels like „a bruise that never quite healed right.” "Wherever you may go / I will let you down / But this lullaby plays on…" Never without a boyfriend, Remy is a compulsive dater, but before a guy can go all „Ken” on her (as in "ultra boyfriend behavior") she cuts him off, without ever getting close or getting hurt. That's why she's stunned when klutzy, quirky, alterna-band boy Dexter inserts himself into her life and refuses to leave. Remy's been accepted to Stanford, and she plans on having her usual summer fling before tying up the loose ends of her pre-college life and… (tovább)

Sarah Dessen: This Lullaby

Lehet, hogy hülyeség vagy csupán én vagyok az, de az összes szeretett könyvemet szeretném eredeti nyelven is elolvasni, hiszen úgy az igazi. Magyarral sokkal gyorsabban tudok haladni, bár az angol sem okoz nagy fáradtságot, mégis szinte mindent magyarul olvastam idáig. Igen, idáig.
Igazából ugyanazt a könyvet olvastam el két különböző nyelven, de mint más esetben itt is jobban tetszett az angol, vagyis az eredeti. Sokkal jobban át tudtam élni a történetet.

Sarah Dessen a kedvenc írónőim között foglal helyet. Imádom a stílusát, ahogy ír és amiről ír. Igaz, hogy burkoltan de mindig valami fontos témát dolgoz fel és a tanulságát mutatja be. Valamit életszerűen, hiszen itt semmi sem tökéletes, ahogy azt a legtöbb írónő megírja.

Hihetetlenül imádom ezt a könyvet és a szereplőit. Remy nagy kedvencem lett már az elejétől. Dexter pedig sok hibája ellenére tökéletes karakter. És így együtt imádom őket, nagyon.

Szerintem a Dessen regények a jobb fajta ifjúsági irodalom közé tartoznak, s én ezt a könyvét is legalább annyira szerettem, mint az előzőeket.

But holding people away from you, and denying yourself love, that doesn't make you strong. If anything, it makes you weaker. Because you're doing it out of fear.

… love is needing someone. Love is putting up with someone's bad qualities because they somehow complete you.

…I just sat there on the bed and listened to my song. The one that had been written for me by a man who knew me not at all, now sung by the one who knew me best.

I had no illusions about love anymore. It came, it went, it left casualties or it didn't. People weren't meant to be together forever, regardless of what the songs say.

It's like riding a bike.(…) If you actually think about it too much, you realize how complicated a concept it actually is. You have to just hop on and go, and not worry about the mechanics. Let it run itself.

It got me thinking about what cost beauty. Or for that matter, what cost anything? Would you trade love for beauty? Or happiness for beauty? Could a gorgeous person with a mean streak be a worthy trade? And if you did make the trade, decide you'd take that beautiful swan and hope it wouldn't turn on you, what would you do if it did?
