Long late nights of losing what was meant for me.
Her alarm clock goes off again for the third time as she tosses and turns in bed wide eyed. "Another day Angelina, another day for sure" she says, as she rolls out of bed. Releasing a halitosis-filled sigh and yawn. Angelina stares into the darkness of her dorm room, as 8 AM sunlight streaks through the lines of closed blinds resembling white thread on the floor. Angelina puts on her glasses signifying she is going to start her day. Stubbing her toe while making her way to the bathroom, she curses her vile words into the silence. "I need to sleep with lights on now?" she questions, as she examines her toe.
She sat there quietly. Counting the bubbles in her glass of freshly poured room temperature water. The room was quiet. A moth bumped against the light bulb overhead. The light flickered as circuits in the bulb were frying.
James Patterson is an author that has used words to go global. I read his fictional novel Cradle & All out of curiosity and was taken through a wild perspective with criminal fiction, religion, and conspiracy theories. Patterson has been labeled as one of the world’s richest authors, he has had most of his pieces in The New York Times Bestseller's list. The idea of playing on the story of the recurring Virgin Mary and Virgin Satanist is diabolical. As I read the story, I was literally scared to read the next page because of how gruesome the details were. It was almost as if the story was real but I had to break away from the novel and remember it was a fictional story.
As you read the tales of the Japanese culture on geishas, you are taken on a self-identity journey. This era of Japan is where entertainment and a patriarchal society begin to go hand in hand. This book imprinted on all its international readers because it touched every culture controversy that made outsiders raise their eyes. In the told tale you find themes of sex taboos, foot-binding, child neglect, adaptation, and perfectionism in outstanding reach. These events being true and someone actually living through them evokes a greater amount of emotion. Some chapters are more heart-wrenching than others. The journey begins with the passing of the mother; Chiyo is the main character and she is sold to a geisha house by her father.
