Book Review & Summary:

A Recommended Book From: The New York Times * Good Morning America * Entertainment Weekly * Electric Literature * Alma * The Millions * Book Riot A commanding debut and a poignant coming-of-age story about a devout Jewish high school student whose plunge into the secularized world threatens everything he knows of himself Ari Eden’s life has always been governed by strict rules. In ultra-Orthodox Brooklyn, his days are dedicated to intense study and religious rituals, and adolescence feels profoundly lonely. So when his family announces that they are moving to a glitzy Miami suburb, Ari seizes his unexpected chance for reinvention. Enrolling in an opulent Jewish academy, Ari is stunned by his peers’ dizzying wealth, ambition, and shameless pursuit of life’s pleasures. When the academy’s golden boy, Noah, takes Ari under his wing, Ari finds himself entangled in the school’s most exclusive and wayward group. These friends are magnetic and defiant—especially Evan, the brooding genius of the bunch, still living in the shadow of his mother’s death. Influenced by their charismatic rabbi, the group begins testing their religion in unconventional ways. Soon Ari and his friends are pushing moral boundaries and careening toward a perilous future—one in which the traditions of their faith are repurposed to mysterious, tragic ends. Mesmerizing and playful, heartrending and darkly romantic, The Orchard probes the conflicting forces that determine who we become: the heady relationships of youth, the allure of greatness, the doctrines we inherit, and our concealed desires.

Book Summary:

"These are vivid, visceral poems about coming of age in a place 'where the Ferris Wheel / was the tallest thing in the valley,' where a boy would learn 'to fire a shotgun at nine and wring a chicken's neck / with one hand by twirling the bird and whipping it straight like a towel.' . . . In spite of such hardscrabble cruelties?or because of them?there is also a real tenderness in these poems, the revelations of bliss driving along an empty highway 'like opening a heavy book, / letting the pages feather themselves and finding a dried flower.' . . . The poet has a gift for rendering his world in cinematic images. . . . In short, these poems are the stuff of life itself, ugly and beautiful, wherever or whenever we happen to live it." ?Martin Espada

Book Summary:

The analytical views in this book are not in any way serendipity; rather, they were well thought-out and structured as simply received. Thus arises the need to initiatively look back at the epoch of our existence on Earth as preceded by the following: survival of the fittest, search for food, where to live, sacrifices and rituals to appeal to God, brutalism against one another, religious sect formation, and deforestation due to uncontrollable population increase. Improvisation of wooden houses, trees of concrete, iron, and steel have been initiated, but, in a way, they have continually caused global warming to increase very much, at a gradual pace, as civilization advances through Machine Age/mechanized farming, industrialization, and technological advancements, space exploration, and globalization of industries and corporate organizations. The heat increases at an unusual, unprecedented level due to greenhouse gas emission and thus the assumed greenhouse releases a light-weight carbon dioxide (CO2) gas into the atmosphere, which is speculated to have formed impenetrable blanket. The presence of CO2 is an indicator, pointing to a fact that this gas in question had been released in the past and is presently being discharged uncontrollably. More so, there seems to be no end in sight as the CO2 continues to be sporadically expunged into the atmosphere. The process described above has continued to be expanding through all frontiers with no end in sight, where new neighborhoods are being built, Suburbs margining together as new Castles are evolving block by block, and concrete plazas are enveloping the Earth; so are the vegetative forest of trees are disappearing, causing global warming to increase exponentially. The increase becomes very much intense at an alarming rate in that it has now been considered to be adversely effective when found to be dangerously impacting the essence and every facet of life. Analytical research is hereby required to be conducted by the world’s best researchers and scientists in their respective professional fields. Necessary wisdom of advice has to be forwarded by religious leaders of all known, notable, reliable religious groups or denominations. Leaders and heads of governments of all Nations that control every facet of life, in every part of the globe, must guide and monitor, purposely to do proper checks and balances with intuition, ideology, predictions, and prophecies contained in this book. The Land & the Orchard of Human Species This is to determine the level of damages caused by humanity, thereby putting the Earth’s conditions into a scale of ratio prior to civilization, and, as civilization progresses, i.e., the condition of the Earth from time immemorial as the scientists and archaeologists can determine through lists of records and documentaries. Precisely, from premedieval periods to present days and age, while projecting into the future of the planet Earth in order for us to be just and find peace among ourselves and on Earth. If humanity cannot find peace on Earth, then, we cannot find peace elsewhere because human’s trait is like a shadow that trails behind you when you take a walk in the light. Source of all lives and the means of energy and growth.

Book Summary:

A Guardian Book of the Year and Chapters/Indigo Best Book In the foothills of a mountain range in northern Pakistan is a beautiful orchard. Swallows wheel and dive silently over the branches, and the scent of jasmine threads through the air. Pomegranates hang heavy, their skins darkening to a deep crimson. Neglected now, the trees are beginning to grow wild, their fruit left to spoil on the branches. Many miles away, a frail young man is flung out of prison gates. Looking up, scanning the horizon for swallows in flight, he stumbles and collapses in the roadside dust. His ravaged body tells the story of fifteen years of brutality. Just one image has held and sustained him through the dark times -- the thought of the young girl who had left him dumbstruck with wonder all those years ago, whose eyes were lit up with life. A tale of tenderness in the face of great and corrupt power, In The Orchard, The Swallows is a heartbreaking novel written in prose of exquisite stillness and beauty.
