Dependent Origination

The Ionian Mission

Posted on: June 9, 2011

还可以吧. 没有一开始那么好看了. 但是我对人物的热爱,和对主题的好奇足够让我继续读下去,并且心里希望下一本能重现一开始几本的辉煌.

这本, 叫the book of disappointment更合適. 并不是写的不好.而是两个主角人到中年发现自己对事情有了期望, 别人对自己也有了期望, 不再是那 个没人注意没人喝彩的 underdog了. 十几年下来 肝赡 相照的朋友和幸灾乐祸的敌人都攒了很多. 每次出航连船员都有概念这次该和船长捞多少金子.和 年轻时的 carefree的 日子差远了. 我一边看一边想到H.M.S. Surprise, 两个人都刚刚入行不久,有一艘船就开心的不得了,更不用说是去自己没去过的地方. 新奇冒险年轻的快乐,跟现在完全不一样. 甚至读起来都让我替他们怀念青春.

其实和我现在的处境何尝不像呢.
