is one of the main interests of many people. In the modern world a personality
must read because many different words met us every day in various places and
we must understand what they are meaning. Ability to read is very important for
That is why we begin study reading in the our childhood.
As for me when I
was so little my parents read me different fairy-tales and other child’s books
every day. It helped me developed my memory and imagination. Besides that after
evening reading I slept
very good and dreamt about fairy heroes. Later, when I became three years old I
began studying the letters.
It was very interesting for me because my mother thought of diverse words for
every letter. Those words were meaning nice things which I liked. There were
animals, birds and things. For example, for the letter “a” will be the word
Apple. I liked this fruit and understand this letter. Sometimes my older sister
drew funny pictures with letters for me, and sometimes we played in the study
of that helped me very much.
So when I knew
the whole alphabet my mother began to teach me to read by syllables. And soon I
could read unassisting my mother. I was four and I was the very happy child.
The first book that I read and it was my favorite book in childhood and it was called
Aibolit by Korney Chukovskiy. I remember that I had read this book about ten
When I studied
at school I began to read the books which my teachers set me. At first there
Turgenev, Anton Chekhov, Alexandr Pushkin and Mikhail Lermontov. I cryed very
much when I read Mumu written by famous author Ivan Turgenev. I terribly
sorried for main hero deaf-and-dumb Herasim and his small dog. This sad story
made a greate impression for me. Also
I studied different poems by heart and my favorite poem was The Good Attitude
To The Horses by Vladimir Mayakovskiy. I remember it very well even now. Last
years at school we read novels written by the сlassic
Russian authors such as Lev Tolstoy, Fedor Dostoevskiy, Mikhail Sholokhov and poems
written by the great Russian poets Anna Akhmatova, Sergey Esenin, Alexandr
Block, Vladimir Mayakovskiy and others. But always I preferedpreferred detectives. I
like the stories about Sherlock Holmes by Arthur Conan Doyle very much. And I
like Hercule Poirot by Agatha Christie who became one of the most popular
private detectives since Sherlock Holmes. This little BelgainBelgian with the
egg-shaped head and the passion order amazes everyone by his brilliant solutions to
the most complicated crimes. Besides that I too like read adventure books and I
think that Robert Stivenson is the best in this genre. His Treasure’s Island is
the splendid book!
There are many
different genres in the world literature: detectives, love novels, fantasies,
poems, thrillers, horror books, historical books and so on. I read books of all
those genres and now I have not preference in the literature. Sometimes I read
thrillers sometimes fairy-tales and sometimes I want to read something new. At
those moments I asked my friends or my parents about books’ novelties. Usualy I
listen to what my uncle thinks about so-and-so books. I respect my uncle’s
opinion because he is a very clever and well-read man and I love his very much.
he lives in Moscow and he has posibilitypossibility to know about new books earlier
The last book
that he recomendedrecommended me was so
interesting! That was the novel Norwegian Wood written by Japanese author
Haruki Murakami. I like Japan very much and cirtainlycertainly I want to read this book. Besides
that I have a chance to know something more about this country, its culture,
customs and people. This novel was very breathtaking for me. Norwegian Wood
includes the volume of literature forms: memoirs, letters, dreams, clipping, appeal to the
Internet. Haruki Murakami combines the methods of pop-culture, cinema, music
and detective genre. It is the mixture of zen-philosophy, jazz session and love
stories. There are original story with many funny jokes and songs by famous
groups like The Beatles, Beach Boys and Rolling Stones. This book is written
about life of young Japanese man who studies at the University in Tokio. His
name is Vatanabe. He is so abrupt, independent and serious with unknown people, but
he is very tender, understanding, sincere and tolerant with his friends and
with people wichwhich he loves.
Vatanabe collides with many problems in the adult world. His best friend and
his girlfriend were made a suicide during the two years. After hat he
reserved himself and he must decide how he will be living in the future. But
soon he met the nice girl and of course the love saved him.
On the pages of
novel author tells us about the real life. The heroes of his books very lonely
they have the aspirtionaspiration to live. From
my opinion lonely and independent are the main idea of the Murakami’s books. As
for me Haruki Murakami is my favorite author now. His novels are very unusual
and I never read the books of this genre. I do not know what genre is it at all.
But now I read almoustalmost all books by
this writer and I can tell that I understand and love him very much.
Recently I think
the books can fit almost every need, temper or interest. Books can be read when
you are in the
mood; they don't have to be taken in periodic doses. Reading is probably the
most important skill you will need for success in your studies. You will have
to read lengthy assignments in different subjects with varying degrees of
detail and difficulty. If
you you read inaccuratlyinaccurately, you will fail
to understand some of the information and ideas you read. If you read slowly,
you will have to spend too much time reading your sentences so that your other
work may suffer.
No matter what
kind of genre
you choose the most important thing is getting the real pleasure dealing with
art of book.
