The Last Mask

Posted by William Berry | Filed under Blog, Reviews | No Comments

About a month or so ago I was asked by two very different authors to read and review their work. One is a novel, which I expect to review in several months (as my schedule isn’t permitting much leisurely reading time). The other was a short story called “The Last Mask” by Ray N. Kuili. It took me far too long to get to it. (you can purchase the short story on amazon by clicking the photo above or here.

Mr. Kuili came across my review of “Siddhartha” by Hermann Hesse on Goodreads and must have felt I’d enjoy his tale. He was correct. The story is about a …

Review: Siddhartha

Posted by William Berry | Filed under Blog, Reviews | No Comments

I finished “Siddhartha”, by Hermann Hesse. The book is a fictionalized account of an enlightened one. The name Siddhartha, of course, is the given name of the original Buddha, the founder of Buddhism. However, the narrative does not follow the known path of the real life Siddhartha. In fact, Hesse may have chosen the name as it is defined as one who accomplishes goal or meaning.

I absolutely loved the book. The narrative is filled with aspects of Buddhism, lessons for enlightenment, and also invested the reader in the protagonist of the story. I had read “Demian” recently (also by Hesse) and although I wondered what would happen to the protagonist, …

Review: Gift From The Sea

Posted by William Berry | Filed under Blog, Reviews | No Comments

I recently finished Anne Morrow Lindbergh’s “Gift From The Sea.” Although it is only a little more than 120 pages (and small pages at that) it took me months to read. This isn’t because I found it irrelevant or boring; quite the contrary, I wanted to savor it. I only read it at the beach, and never read more than a chapter in a sitting. I wanted her thoughts about life and relationships to sink in, marinate inside of me.

The book is touted as being for women, and even more initially off-putting, for women from over half a century ago. Despite what might seem a limitation, the observations within remain …
