The World is Flat 世界是平的 – Thomas L. Friedman

27th Feb 2007 - 09:26pm 書評
二十一世紀是全球化的年代﹐隨著科技和交通發達﹐在世界兩個各角的地方隔離縮短了﹐隨著緊密的政治經濟合作關係﹐國與國之間的圍牆也倒下了。不論在那裏生活的人﹐無論是在發達國家還是第三世界﹐也無可被免要適應全球化的大趨勢。「世界是平的」這本書正好為讀者解說全球化的來龍去脈﹐分析發達國家與第三世界在全球化遇到的問題﹐以及展望未來全球化的方向。這本書在零五年出版後便一直高踞紐約時報暢銷書排行榜﹐去年更獲推薦為香港電台十本好書。其實在這本書出版以前﹐全球化這個詞語早已深入民心。若平時有看經濟或企管雜誌﹐對書中的內容相信不會陌生。不過這本書把有關全球化的知識有系統地整理出來﹐對新手是一本很好的入書藉﹐亦可以讓老手溫故知新﹐重新思考在全球化中自己的定位。…

香港三部曲 – 陳冠中

25th Feb 2007 - 12:26am 書評
我在網上書店郵賺陳冠中的「我這一代香港人」 時﹐發現很多讀者也同時訂購了他的另一部小說「香港三部曲」。在網上好像也看過這小說的介紹﹐說寫得不錯﹐反正要賺物滿一定限額才可以免郵費﹐想不到購買什麼其他書的情況下﹐便順手買了這本小說。原本以為小說名稱叫三部曲﹐一定會是本長篇小說﹐寄到後才發現全書不足二百頁﹐只不過是三篇沒有關連的短篇小說的結集﹐有點被騙錢的感覺。陳冠中擅長寫香港文化﹐「我這一代香港人」的性質半散文半論文比較嚴肅﹐「香港三部曲」則以輕鬆的手法﹐從側面去描寫香港文化的轉變。書中的三個故事分別發生在崇洋風氣漸起的七十年代﹐經濟起飛的八十年代﹐以及回歸後老懵董的年代。三個故事的主角都不屬於香港社會的主流文化﹐從某程度上他們是主流眼中的失敗者。然而作者借用他們三人的眼睛﹐從他們的另類價值觀出發﹐與主流意識作一個對照﹐讓讀者從字裏行間中反思自己的價值取向。…

Maybe I am a bit out of date about the internet culture of this generation. I have seen the word “Orz” used here and there, I sort of know it express the feeling of frustration and depression. Today, I finally know its true meaning…

看「生日快樂」這套電影的觀眾有兩類人﹐第一類被故事深深感動﹐在散場時還會哭成淚人。第二類人在整套戲中也呵欠連連﹐差點沒有被過慢的劇情悶死﹐很不幸…
