I have finished this book last week. I am glad that I have bought this book from Rozella. It is such a wonderful true story. Thanks Rozella for the great price :)
This book is about a man named Daniel Pearl or well known as Danny Pearl a Wall Street Journal reporter who went to Karachi with his pregnant wife Mariane Pearl. He was kidnapped by terrorist in Karachi and then found beheaded days after the kidnapping. The reason was because he is a Jewish! It was so tragic :(
When I think about Mariane and her son I cry. I really salute Mariane as she was so brave, strong and never give up till the end. I do not think I would have that strength if I was her.
To those who do not know anything about this you can simply google or surf about it in youtube. I did not know there is “A Mighty Heart” movie acted by Angelina Jolie as Mariane! I will get a copy of it for sure!
Here are the interesting excerpts:
Don’t lose your smile okay? We’re going to get bald and fat and old, but you can’t lose that smile –Danny Pearl-This excerpt really touches me. Someone has said this to me before. When I reached this part, I just couldn’t help but having watery eyes.
How can anyone live without hope? – Mariane Pearl-
Objects inanimés, aves-vous donc une âmeWords of farewell to the house that Danny and Mariane stayed when there were in Karachi.
Qui s’ attache à notre âme et la force d’aimer?
Inanimate objects, do you possess a soul
That comes to our soul, and demands to be loved?
-Alphonse de Lamartie-
My love life needs a double-click. Sometimes in the process called life, my document titled ‘love life’ has been lost. And, like a cyber-crime investigator, I am trying to recover the lost file from the formatted hard disk of my heart – Dost-I like this excerpt the most. Feel like it is just about me.
Thanks again Rozella!
