    You're right! You do well!
    Is it maybe ""Fifty shades of grey"?
    It's my turn to quote you
    Luomo la specie pi folle: venera un Dio invisibile e distrugge una Natura visibile. Senza rendersi conto che la Natura che sta distruggendo quel Dio che sta venerando.

    I gave up and i searched it, but I won't spoiler it
    The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again: but already it was impossible to say which was which.

    Ok. Another Pieces for the other people.

    His hand grip my arms, but he releases me a moment after I stand upright again.
    "Thank you" I say.
    We stand in a platform ten feet above the ground.
    around us is an Open cavern.
    "can't Belive it", a voice says from behind him. It belongs to a dark - haired girl with three silver rings througt Her Right eyebrow. She smirks at me. "A Stiff, the first to Jump? Unheard of"
    "There's a reason Why she left them. Lauren." He says.
    his voice is deep, and it rumbles. "What's your name?
    "Um... " I Don't Know Why I hesitate. But Beatrice" Just doesn't sound Right anymore.
    "think about it" he says., a faint simile curling his lips. "you Don't get to pick again".
    A New place, a new name. I can be remade here.



    question:
    which 's name Beateice choise?

    this novel has a simple english. Good, for me.

    I've read something more about this novel

      Spoiler
    Divergent, isn't it?


    And I've found it very interesting. It could be a future reading for me (in italian), because if I've to try to read something in English, I prefer to start with a novel thet I've already read in italian

    two days ago I found Donna Leone's novel, Uniform Justice.

    this is the incipit:
    Thirst woke him. It was not the healthy thirst that follows three sets of tennis or a day spent skiing, thirst that comes of the body's desperate attempt to replenish liquids that have been displaced by alcohol.

    after these words I thought: I know this thirst!

    a question... is it normal repeat three times Thirst in the same sentence?

    One month ago I became to watch movies in original language at the cinema.
    My English is the same. Eh eh. All the movies have subtitles, so it's easy follow dialogues.
    I wached:
    The damish girl
    The Room
    Hail Caesar!
    Bridge of spies
    One royal night out


    The Bridges of spies is in very simple english. Ok. I read the subtitles too, but Inside me I thinked " thiat level is easy!"

    Why not?
    The sentence describes a situation in a very clear way.

    It could be right for me to re-start watching movies in original language ... if English or American of course.

    Let me ask you a thing... have you noticed english films dubbed in italian sound different now? you can feel the dubbing even in the trailer, can't you?
    The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again: but already it was impossible to say which was which.
