追風箏 High!

  由玉珍與詒訪(左一及左二)主摧的讀書會,一轉眼進入二年半的時光,前後讀過了近二十本的書及文章,周日晚在拉讓花園的秀娟家討論“追風箏的孩子”(The Kite Runner)一書;
  書中的追風箏可以說是追榮譽、追理想、追自由......精彩的追風箏的片斷,也更震撼的是人性的刻劃......

  自書中談到書外,拉讓江詩人老李(炎城)與名中醫蔡振基講到童年這兩位詩巫巴剎仔放風箏及割風箏的回憶......
  講的興起,與飄在空中的風爭一樣high,兩人當年不相識,一是漳泉人,一是潮州人,就說你是中華路的還是廈門街的;另一個說一定有割過你的風爭,對方說肯定是我的風爭割過你的風箏......追風箏一書內容精彩,但兩個大男人你一句我一句,更精彩,差一點就想再衝向馬路來一場風箏賽!
  在下童年在24甲鄉區,放風箏因為空間限制,都是樹林包圍著,沒有那麼競爭,追風箏及檢丟下來的風箏都要到樹林裡的樹梢上去檢......但今天少年一代對風箏只有眼觀的份,沒有參與的份!
  下一次讀書會,大家決定選“情系拉讓江”一書,是第一次選讀本地書呢!你要“參一腳”嗎!

meng lei, it is wonderful that a few of you spend time together to share a common interest in book-reading. Keep it up and enlarge your circle to promote this very noble interest.

The Kite Runner is one of the best books I have ever read. It touches on themes which few Asians would dare to touch. And it is indeed affecting me to the core of my being even days after I have read it.

Happy reading. We do not have a reading circle or club here now. A few years ago we had one and it lasted about one year.

Keep up the good work.
