“神仙。我们认为我们了解,我们已经发明了科学,但没有任何线索。也许聪明的人并不是认为自己很聪明的人。也许聪明的人就是接受他们一无所知的人。”

Perfect is a novel set in 1972, when two seconds were added to time in order to counteract the irregularities in the Earth’s rate of rotation. Eleven year old boy, Byron Hemming 和 his friend James Lowe both know this, but Byron is haunted by it 和 can’t understand how time could change. Then one day, Byron witnesses a disastrous mistake made by his mother while on their way back from school. Unsure whether the extra seconds were to blame for this, Byron 和 James begin “Operation Perfect” to try 和 help 拜伦的母亲避免了即将来临的命运。 今天还向我们介绍了一个中年男子吉姆。努力应付咖啡馆中的工作清洁桌子,同时应对严峻的现实 在强迫症(OCD)方面,乔伊斯(Joyce)展现了一个被过去困扰的独特人物。虽然这两个故事似乎无关 首先,作为情节 发展,我们知道为什么它们相互联系。

Perfect is beautifully written. It tackles the interesting 和 unique perspective of a character who has OCD, 和 gives the reader an insightful view of him growing up 和 dealing with everyday situations 和 problems. Joyce 完善s the ability to portray characters in a way which evokes sympathy while still allowing them to be plausible.

我非常喜欢读这本书,写得很好 and 对...的斗争给出了非常有趣的观点 一个患有精神疾病的人。我特别喜欢吉姆(Jim)讲述的 他一生中遇到的平凡活动。他的强迫症不仅阻止他 做其他人都喜欢的事情,但为了满足 他的病情要求。虽然这本书’我的主要故事非常刺激 times Joyce presented characters who were a little too superficial 和 lacked necessary depth. Compliant 和 orderly Diana was a little too cliché to make her interesting. Her 对她的控制缺乏抗议 丈夫西摩,以及她“perfect” appearance 进行了乏味的角色开发。此外,戴安娜’S可能是朋友Beverly,与Diana截然相反,以致于无法使她变得现实或引人注目。

However, on the whole, I thought Perfect raised thought-provoking questions about gender roles in the 1970s 和 the very apparent stigma attached to mental illness, even in the present day. She delves deep into the reasons mental-illness is a difficult subject to understand, while portraying Jim with dignity 和 raw courage.
