Tất nhiên là về nội dung sách thì hầu như chẳng có gì cả, chỉ là một chuỗi hình của cô mèo Pusheen được 4,5 sao. But that will do, I think. And if you agree, these poems are for you, too. They are imaginative and really take you into the mindset of the characters, sometimes in surprising ways. I appreciated the organization by theme-- Assault, Possession, Destruction, Transformation-- and the accompanying drawings would make awesome tattoos.
When I do, I like it dark and bloody and morbid like I like my books. After reading the stories you find in the poetry here, you will know these women because these women are all of us. And in a sense, she uses strong female characters from horror movies as the focus of each poem. I Am Not Your Final Girl is a collection of poetry by Claire C. For me, I am Pusheen the Cat is a three star book at most.
This is a really basic, easy, quick read with cute pictures of Pusheen during the different seasons and holidays and doing activities. I read it in two sittings. Deeply unapologetic, this debut collection is a fitting tribute to final girls and the society that shapes them. Las imágenes de Pusheen no me han conquistado en su totalidad, más bien pocas son las que me gustaron en realidad, y varias por los comentarios adjuntos. This collection of oh-so-cute kitty comics—featuring the chubby, tubby tabby who has taken the Internet by storm—will fill you in on all the basics.
I imagine horror film aficionados would derive even greater pleasure from this slim collection. Extra information: When you watch shows nowadays I hear the name Claire alot! Most of them however, were new to me, and really funny. They claim power over their own bodies. This book is something I definitely recommend for your collection; especially if you are a fan of the horror genre or want to read some poetry with a feminist kick to it. I Am Not Your Final Girl ranges from Texas Chainsaw Massacre to The Ring to It Follows. I am slightly obsessed with Pusheen.
Tie potvory skrátka nepoužijú škrabadlo ani za toho boha. Isn't he supposed to be a bit older then this group? He looks so sad, and probably wants to just crawl away and hide somewhere. When I started to read the poems I was so thrilled. The best thing about the name Claire: Its a no bother name, easy for small children to say. My mom wanted to name me Sarah and my dad wanted to name me Chelsea at first. They are in need of saving, fall deep into stereotypes, and are constantly objectified and dissected as parts instead of people. For some reason, I like Claire even when she is wrong.
Holland really gets under your skin with these smart, powerful, dark poems. A môj tajný životný sen je stať sa mačk 18. Filled with hilarious antics 4 paw-sitive, meow-nificent stars! What I had instead was suspicion and a psychological dependency that grew until it took over completely. She so perfectly articulates something that I didn't even realize I was thinking. I will be sharing and reading some of these poems as soon as next semester. I don't watch a lot of horror and have only seen about five of the films referenced, but reading this collection was a visceral experience that neatly paired with my mounting dread about the direction of the tide of women's rights and women's status as bodily autonomous.
And that was all just from the introduction! Just in time for the Halloween season. This is probably the best known poem of his. She has an admirable sense of humour, and many hobbies including eating, sleeping, and of course, blogging. Holland has also found inspiration within characters in horror films who constantly had to fight. Some of these poems hit very close to home. If it were possible to die of maximum cuteness and hilarity, I probably would've done so over this brief read.
Es un dibujo tan sencillo pero tan cuqui que es difícil no sentir apego por él. This book would make a great gift for your horror film loving friend as it is clear that Holland loves these movies. I think Tripp is poison, I wish she'd get away from him. I thought you liked loaded weapons. It took my friends on Goodreads and BookLikes reading this for Pusheen to appear on my radar and when I realized that this was up on NetGalley, I quickly requested it.
Algunas viñetas son de costumbres americanas y me han resultado un tanto lejanas pero la mayoría de secciones me han sacado más de una sonrisa. But, for those that I did, or at least felt like I did, I thought they were great and thought provoking. Holland combines two of my favorite things: feminist poetry and fictional final girls. That it was based on the horror genre, of which I'm an avid fan, was definitely the main attraction to me. Whatever or wherever the contest was held, I am grateful to have received a copy of his collection, because I loved reading it.
I was a bit wary; although I love horror movies as well as poetry, I haven't come across many successful attempts to bring those two things together. All donations and support are gratefully received. I'm so glad I picked this comic up! I am seriously jealous of her life. Each poem and each voice takes the Final Girl trope and smashes it beautifully just as this book smashes the patriarchy with its timely, proactive nature of women in horror standing their ground. I'm constantly searching for titles to pique her interest and I struck gold with this little book, I am Pusheen the Cat. While there, I became a voracious student of the disease of alcoholism. I Am Not Your Final Girl is a collection of 40 poems about the feminist perspective in horror movies.
