You Are a Kogyaru!

If it's cute, you'll wear it. Fake and bake, hair bleach, and bright makeup line your bathroom cabinet.
As for clothes - anything that's short and cute ("kawaii!").
You are the prize object of all sorts of men - but you are really looking for a rich foreign guy.
He'll find you out hanging out in Shibuya shopping at the 109, text messaging and sending photos over your cellphone.

The Parsifal Mosaic - Robert Ludlum

Summary & REVIEW of The Parsifal Mosaic by Robert Ludlum

Category: Books
Genre: Mystery & Thriller / International Spies
Author: Robert Ludlum

This book was a gift from my 18th birthday by JV. Thank you JV!

At first the book was kind of confusing.

Usually when i read a “ludlum” novel, i’d be excited from the very beginning and be psyched about what’s going to happen. But this book is different, the first part was confusing. Maybe, because the story was about “lies”, and the truth should be hidden, and to seek for it in this book, was kinda “difficult”. (of course you can always skip a lot of part and get to the whole thing straight at the back end, where the answers lie…but you would be missing on all of the action and the thrill)

And the title really fitted the content of the book itself. The “lie” was so deep, that it was covered with different lies.. and thus it was called a “mosaic”. A mosaic of lies. It really was a “massive mosaic of treachery”.This was the first time that i finished a book for so long, that it took months. Because i was doing a lot of “first things first” and this book is the least of my priority these days… and since my internet keeps going on and off.. well it gave me more time to finish this book.

This book was also.. the first book, that i hit on the mastermind… right. I know who did this and that before it was really uncovered by the book in detail. I hit on 4 of the different people who were involved in the massive treachery. And was right for my “not-liking-one-character” there, because he was one of the real insane evil. Maybe, because i have tried to understand each character that i can suddenly feel whether they would do that thing or not.

One of the lesson was from the legend of “Icarus”. Flying or soaring too high and then be blinded by the sun.. and then falling on the ground because .. your wings….. wasn’t made for that. Parsifal(Zelinsky) made a man “fly and soar” high because of his “wits” people began to idolize him… they all praised his words… his intellects. He was all THAT, and to think he wasnt even the president of the U.S. of A. But Parsifal drove him far too much.. made him fly higher causing him to make decisions…that blinded him from reality.. that could prolly annihilate the whole world… and then the man.. (anthony m) who was idolized by many from different parts of the globe.. suddenly broke down… too much wit and too much thinking made him INSANE.

Yes, the fact that would astound a lot. Imagine, the one person you thought could bring answers to every problem in the world… suddenly broke down and is CRAZY. For all the things he has to think and bring about the solution of the world…. he suddenly cannot take the pressure. But of course… the fact that he was crazy was concealed to the whole world.. until the man(Michael H.) can bring the answers.. the truth out of all those intrinsic lies.. that started at Shenandoah.It started there… and it also ended there. *sigh* Such a shame that Parsifal had to die.. and also Matthias.. and also Emory Bradford.. and also countless of characters.. that helped them find the truth(and ive grown attached to them).

This is the 2nd Ludlum book that made me cry. Boohoo.And to the VKR.. whose purpose was to the good of their people.. but the ways they try to justify the purpose.. would not.. excuse them.How amazing that there could be people like that.. and it is true. Yes, their purpose are sane.. the fight for “justice”. But the way they do it…. terrorize.. kill… treachery.. lies.. betray.. would not justify for what they are trying to fight for. And they would never win… the law of nature says so.. they might have the advantage.. but they would never rule…An argument from the book that i find quite “funny”.

Michael: I don’t have to!! Try to understand, Doctor. A black-operation officer like MacKenzie….
Dr. Randolph: A what?! Mac was WHITE!

The “black” that Michael was referring to means he was an “engineer, a manipulator, a man in sanction, with the authority to bring about the events in which people might get killed, usually ARE killed because it needs to be done.” while the “black” that Randolph was referring to was his “color”.
