I liked this collection of short stories.
What's an epiphany ?
From what I remember from school :
A sudden revelation that comes to us though a image, a music... and makes us realize something important that can make us change our actual feelings.
From wikipedia :
"sudden recognitions that changed their view of themselves or their social condition and often sparking a reversal or change of heart."
"An epiphany is the sudden realization or comprehension of the (larger) essence or meaning of something."
Now, the stories I liked more were :
The dead ( read it here en.wikisource.org/wiki/The_Dead if you wish )
A painful case
A little cloud
The first one ends with a reflection about life and love, I loved that.
Guess what? Image taken from Wikipedia again...
Not a great book for me.
I don't know why I didn't liked it much, but it never gave me any real emotion.
Maybe it's because everyone knows about what should be misterious in the story, so you don't feel like walking in the void when the characters are doing that.
I read also "The body snatcher" and "A chapter on dreams" from the same writer and it didn't look anything extraordinary.
The first one could be more thrilling but for some case it isn't at all, while the chapter on dreams reveals somewhat about the writer's ispiration and work on books/stories.
This is all because what I've read countless times on mmosite forum and blogs...
I liked Silkroad because it has 2 possible buildings, European (Tank, Mage, Thief & co) and Chinese (Free development of the character), it has castle assault, but you're not always try to conquer that damn castle, you're usually killing monster.
I got bored of it.
You don't like Silkroad because it's full of bots, there's uber-grinding, and you're tired of "appearently" aimless quests ?
Nobody's paying you to play, unless cases listed by neramaar...
Or forcing you to do it, I don't believe botters are the Corean or part of the Chinese nation working for us...
Now quests and grinding are a problem about 90% of mmorpg's I guess so there are a lot of gamers that just won't stop playing and complaining.
I have my friends playing it, I'm not sure I'd like to play without them....
If you like the game because of the chat or for the community, then don't complain because you already have what you want.
If you want to play then move to a different game and then, after you have found it, try to get you friends to j

I thought it was a horror book and the beginning was awesome for a book of that genre .
Than it changes, it evolves .
I liked the characters and the story but somehow I felt the romance has gotten old.
I noticed it because sometimes characters are "too perfect", there's usually more ambiguity which brings deeper characters but maybe it's just a time and a way of being we lost. And there are way to many compliments for our world, or at least for my point of view.
I think the fictional character is much more famous than the historical one.
The historical one was ALSO cruel, the vampire, you already know...
Pure charisma is what you mainly feel from him.
- Vam Helsing,
I hated the movie after I read the book.
When he writes "I'm scared" I was without breath.
Jonathan and Mina Harker, Seward, Quincey, Lucy, Arthur aren't unforgettable.

Nice book, but not sublime.
Like in Wuthering Heights the narrator can feel to an inferior level, the character he talks about is regarded as something coming from hell.
"Did I request thee, Maker, from my clay
to mould me man., did I solicit thee
from darkness to promote me...?"
"For the first time, also, I felt what the duties of a creator towards his creature were, and that I ought to render him happy before I complained of his wickedness."
"When angels fall down to earth they become devils."
It teaches you that you should never judge people from appearance, and that that way of thinking is much more horrible than what their look may ever be.
It should be also an appeal to science to think before playing with life but I haven't felt much of it in the book.
The truth is that the monster is a great character, while Frankenstein is just so damn fix.
And I can't feel sympathy for unanimated things.
There are De Niro and Al Pacino in it, so go watch the movie.
I liked it (and I rarely like cop movies), it has a nice story and tries to tell the difference between good and right, which is quite something.
Trailer #1 :
The 106 drinks much less. So much less that I thought let's drive and wait for dad to refuel it.
So today 26-09-2008 I was going at 17.35 to get my bro from the stage, I was singing "you and me"[- Lifehouse], when the engine had a big loss of power. Istantly I was scared I had broken something in the engine and I was only at 130 km/h, after a litte the car turned off and I turned calmer.
I let intertia make the car go for some metres, but it stopped at the uphill exit road of the four lane highway, not a good position. Therefore I pushed the 106, got to the downhill, controlled the road I was going to get in and then I jumped in when the car was moving.
The car went by herself near a turn, there I pushed it for a few metres to a bar. There Moreno offered me his help and we refueled the 106.
Gotten my bro into the Peugeot I could finally hear him saying "Don't trust the 106".
Worst of all, he had just stopped asking me if we had enough fuel before I turned on the car, hope he doesn't restart that bad habit......
