:: buku-buku best yang kena 'banned' ::

Assalamualaikum...actually entry kali nie AKU ganti je...thanks to admin sebab bagi ganti Gluck Yusof..and thanks to Gluck Yusof,kali ni AKU nak kongsi sikit pasal buku-buku yang kene banned..semua buku ni femes..macam harry potter..lord of the rings..tapi atas alasan tertentu,terpaksa la di 'banned'...aku dapat info ni pon dari yahoo news..tapi aku kongsi sikit je..maybe yang femes2 je..

jom tengok antara buku2 yang kena banned..

"Captain Underpants"
Some folks had their underwear in a bunch over this children's book series by Dav Pilkey. The "Captain Underpants" series -- about two fourth-graders and their superhero of a principal -- was one of the top 10 most frequently banned and challenged books for 2002, 2004 and 2005. The books were said to contain offensive language, to be sexually explicit and to be anti-family.

offensive language- bahasa2 yang menyinggung..
sexually explicit- bahan lucah yang jelas...

"The Lord of the Rings"
J.R.R Tolkien's book was burned, not in the fires of Mount Doom, but outside of a church in Alamogordo, N.M., in 2001 because it was viewed as "Satanic." 

satanic-kekejaman ala2 setan..

Merriam Webster Collegiate Dictionary
When it comes to banning books, even the dictionary gets no respect. The Merriam-Webster Collegiate Dictionary was pulled from the shelf of a school in Menifee, Calif. The offending term in the dictionary? "Oral sex." The entry references of the dictionary also included cunnilingus and fellatio, which were not cited as the reasons for pulling the dictionary off the shelf. Merriam-Webster has been publishing language reference books for more than 150 years. They were bound to offend someone along the way. 

cunnilingus / fellatio-  aksi lucah..

Harry Potter series
One of the most surprising banned books sits at the No. 1 spot on the ALA list. It's not even a book. It's the entire Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling. The Harry Potter series is to teens what "Star Wars" was to an entire generation of now-40-somethings. The series has been challenged for occultism, Satanism, violence, being anti-family and having religious viewpoint. The series is No. 1 on the ALA's most challenged book list for 2000 to 2009. 

occultism- pengetahuan benda ghaib
violence- kekerasan
religious viewpoint- keagamaan..

"The Grapes of Wrath"
John Steinbeck's "The Grapes of Wrath" is not just another classic on the list. The book was originally banned in California due to obscenity, but the catalyst behind the banning was based more in embarrassment: The people in the region did not like how their area and the workers' situation was portrayed in the novel.

obscenity -serangan seksual..mencabul..

"James and the Giant Peach"
Author Roald Dahl is no stranger to being banned. His book "The Witches" is on the ALA's 100 most frequently challenged books for 1990 to 1999 for its depictions of women and witches. But what about James and his peach? Was there witchcraft at work? James was disobedient and there was violence in the book. 

American Heritage Dictionary (1969)
The American Heritage Dictionary of 1969 was also banned in 1978 from a library in Eldon, Mo., because of 39 objectionable words. The dictionary continued to cause trouble as far away as Alaska, where it was banned by the Anchorage School Board in 1987 for its inclusion of slang words, including "balls." 

objectionable words- ayat yang boleh menyebabkan pergaduhan atau perbalahan..

tu je yang dapat AKU kongsikan..maybe entry ni sesuai untuk yang minat bace novel..peminat2 novel dan buku cerita..
dan paling penting..jangan lupe datang blog AKU k..hehe..

check out Silverfish bookstore at Bangsar. Byk buku2 yg agak hardcore leh jumpa kat situ. Some of them are Malaysian author.

Contoh, Cecil Rajendra. Penulis yg sgt radikal and out-spoken.

p/s: buku LOTR pon kena banned? buku dia lagi awesome dari movie weh.
