  I first read this book in my sophomore year of high school and really enjoyed it, but after re-reading and dissecting it in a class I took a little while back, I realized that I enjoyed it not only because of its accurate language and colloquialisms, but also because of Hosseini’s use of symbolism and recurring themes throughout the novel.

  大二时,我第一次阅读这本书籍就深深被其吸引,但后来在一堂课上再次阅读并剖析这本书时,我意识到我喜欢这本书不仅仅是因为其简洁易懂的语言,还因为Hosseini的象征意义的使用和贯穿整个小说的主题。

  I first read Firefly Lane years ago and it has made a lasting impression on me. It is a story filled with friendship, love, loss and life lessons. I learned so much about friendship, life and the importance of the choices we make while trying to find ourselves. The lessons these women learned as they grew up made me reflect on my own life as I’ve entered my twenties.

  几年前我第一次阅读《萤火虫小巷》,就对其印象深刻。这一本关于友情、爱情、失去和人生哲理的书籍。阅读完该故事后,我对友谊和人生有了进一步的理解,也意识到所做每一步选择的重要性,同时也在努力寻找真实的自我。这两姐妹在成长中所学到的东西,不禁使我对自己20几岁的生活有所反思。

  Through compelling anecdotes that uncover the struggles that women and girls face in the developing world, including sex trafficking in Cambodia and poor maternal health in Ethiopia, the authors uncover one of the most pressing human rights issues of our time: the pervasive oppression of women and girls. The authors put the reader into their shoes, helping us to understand the social and economic constraints that often limit their ability to change their own lives for the better. However, they also include inspirational stories of women who beat the odds and went on to found organizations that work to improve the lives of other women.

  通过令人信服的轶事,揭露了发展中国家的妇女和女孩所面临的各种困境,其中包括柬埔寨的性交易和贫穷的埃塞俄比亚的孕产妇健康问题。作者揭露了我们这个时代最紧迫的人权问题之一:妇女和女孩普遍遭受着压迫。作者使我们身临其境,帮助我们更好的了解社会和经济的约束是如何限制她们改善生活的能力。然而,这其中也包含了鼓舞人心的故事,例如,部分女士跨越重重阻碍,继续创建机构,为其他女士改善生活。

  Although the author of this book has her own legend floating around her, The Bell Jar is a great coming into your 20s story about a young woman who finds that, even if you have opportunities handed to you, it’s hard to stay motivated if your heart’s not in it. Esther goes through all the motions of depression and total listlessness, while battling the life choices set before her. Especially if you suffer from depression or anxiety, I highly recommend this book if you are at a crossroadsin your life.

  《钟形罩》以作者的传奇经历作为蓝本,讲述了一位年轻女士逐渐意识到,如果你心不在焉,即使唾手可得机会也会错失。Esther虽然深深地饱受绝望和忧郁情绪的折磨,但她仍然与看似既定的人生反抗着,这对步入20岁的我们来说是一个精彩的故事。特别是当你患有抑郁症和焦虑症时,如果你正处于人生艰难的十字路口时,我强烈推荐你看看这本书。

  Twenty-somethings are faced with tons of major decisions that must be made. At the very least, this book makes one think about what it means to really have the opportunity to make a choice. And unlike Stanley Kubrick’s film based on A Clockwork Orange, the ending of the book is rather inspiring.

  二十几岁的年轻人需要作出许多的决定。至少,这本书引起我们的思考:有机会自行做决定意味着什么。不同于由发条橙改编的电影—Stanley Kubrick的基调,本书的结尾振奋人心。

  Once I picked this book up, I could not put it down. It was given to me by an intern at work when she heard me say I wasn’t sure if I believed in love anymore. Upon reading it, I thought it would teach me about relationships and loving others, but it ultimately reminded me of the most important lesson about love; what love is, how to love and that all of the love that I ever hope to possibly receive in this world comes from myself first.

  一拿起这本书,我就爱不释手。在工作间隙,当一位实习生听到我说可能不再相信爱情时,她给了我这本书。阅读这本书时,它教会我如何去处理与他人的关系和关爱其他人,最终我学到了爱情中最重要的一课;我明白了什么是爱,如何去爱,我曾经期待从世界中获得的那些爱其实都是源于自己的爱。

  This book is a story about Dolores Price who had endured many faces of abuse in her life. Starting with her father, then mother, her rapist and eventually, her husband. She goes through an abundance of trials and tribulations throughout the novel that many woman can relate to. There is an extremely sad edge to the story as Dolores plunders through life facing rejection, scorn and mistrust. While most young girls face the tough decisions of what outfit to wear to school or which boy to choose to take to the dance, Dolores faces intense problems such as: her weight, rape, an abusive father, unstable mother, sexual confusion, abortion and the constant hurting of not fitting in or belonging to anyone.

  这本书是关于Dolores Price如何忍受生活中的种种虐待的故事。起初是父亲,接着是母亲、强奸犯、最终是她的丈夫。在整部小说中,她经历了无数考验和磨难,很多女士都深有体会。Dolores所遭受的种种拒绝、不信任和蔑视将她推向极端痛苦的边缘。大多数女孩面临最困难的抉择不过是一些类似于穿什么衣服去学校,又或者是该选择哪个男孩作为舞伴等等琐事,而Dolores面临的都是十分激烈的问题,例如:体重、遭受的强奸 、虐待他的父亲,精神失常的母亲、性混乱、堕胎以及不合群和毫无归属感所带来的伤害。

  I believe any girl in their twenties should read this book because, undoubtedly, there is an issue that you can relate to represented in this novel. I was going through some rough patches in my early twenties, and while reading about Dolores’ story, I felt she was truly a character I could relate to and that she wasn’t just fictional.

  我深信20多岁的女孩们应该阅读这本书,毫无疑问,对于你在现实世界中所面临的部分问题,这部小说都有所涉及。20岁刚出头时,我正面临着一些艰难的事情,在阅读了关于Dolores的故事后,我感同身受,感觉现实中应该存在这样的女性,她不仅仅是一个虚构的人物。

  This children’s book is simple but its message transcends age. It might seem like an odd book to recommend to someone in their twenties but perhaps that’s what makes it a good choice. It sings praises to exploration, shows the errors of narrow-mindedness, highlights the importance of making genuine connections and explores the sometimes unbearable nature of lonesomeness. Short, bittersweet and charmingly illustrated by the author, The Little Prince, leaves readers wondering and seeking out what is and what could be which is exactly what we should be doing at this time in our lives.

  这本儿童读物看似简单,但它所表达的思想却超越了年龄的界限。对于20多岁的人来说,这本书可能有些奇怪,但正因为如此,它有可能是一个好的选择。它歌颂探索精神,直指目光短浅的危害,强调建立真诚的友谊,探索大自然偶尔令人无难耐的孤独。作者以简短、苦乐参半、且充满魅力的语言阐述了这些哲理和思想,也引发读者去思考并且寻找本真的自我,探寻在生命的当下最应该做的事情。

  The Perks of Being a Wallflower is a beautifully written novel that every single person should read, whether you’re a high school student, in your twenties or approaching your mid-life crisis. The messages behind it are endearing and crafted together in a way that make you feel as if you’re experiencing life from so many different angles. Charlie shares his life experiences with us, something you’ll take with you each time you turn a year older. I’ve been in love with this book since I was in high school–and I’m even more in love with it in my twenties.

  《壁花少年》是一部文笔优美的小说,不论是高中生,还是20多岁的年轻人,又或是接近中年危机的人,都值得你们去好好阅读。小说潜在的意义显得如此可爱,显然是精心设计过的,它让读者身临其境,仿佛自己正以不同的方式经历着人生。Charlie与我们分享自己的人生经历,随着年岁的增长,我们对其印象也愈加深刻。从高中开始我就喜欢上了这本书,在我进入20岁后,甚至更爱这本书。

  As twenty-somethings, we are all feeling obligated to either find our passions or the courage and means to pursue them. Reading this autobiographical work opened my eyes to something we young, ambitious spirits tend to overlook: the journey. Recognizing the beauty in the life-defining struggles and triumphs we are experiencing right now is a difficult thing to do, but as Murakami shows us in his reflections, it is these moments that shape us.

  作为20几岁的人,我们都深感有义务去找寻自己的激情和勇气所在,并奋力去追寻它们。这部自传作品拓宽了我们的眼界,给予我们启迪,正当年轻而斗志昂扬时,我们往往会忽略人生的过程,而过分注重其结果。我们很难发现那些曾经经历的攸关斗争和胜利中的美好,但正如村上在他的自传中所展示的,正是这些艰难的时刻塑造了我们。
