Have you ever read Dante's inferno? If so was it good?
No. To tell the truth, I am a little bit scared of it. Everyone says it’s impossible to read. Very difficult. Maybe I will try some day.
DId someone read it? Tell the experience! :)
“Just because an animal is large, it doesn’t mean he doesn’t want kindness; however big Tigger seems to be, remember that he wants as much kindness as Roo.”
– A.A. Milne
Do you have any books to suggest, by women or people of color?
Did you read The Help? It is from Kathryn Stockett and talks about the rights of the black people in Jackson, Mississippi. Incredible. It tells the life of three women.
What are really good teen books? What are really good books about falling in love?
Did you read Paper Towns and The Fault in Our Star from John Green?
They are two young adult novels about falling in love, start trusting a persona and caring about a person. Both are beautiful and they are a very simple read.
What's your ideology? Are you a racist? What do you think about atheist and religious people? Thx
I believe in people. In the people I love (my friends, my girlfriend, my family). I am not a racist and I don’t understand those who are. I am not a religious person, but I respect everyone who is.
What is your favorite novel? Or what novel would you recommend to someone looking for a good read. I love to read and am ALWAYS looking for new material!
The Catcher in The Rye, from J.D. Salinger. If you read a lot, you will probably already read it. If you didn’t, you really should. Incredible book with every detail of how a kid feels when he is growing up. I felt very similar in my youth, so I loved it.
You should read everything from Salinger. Franny & Zoey is his other novel (he wrote just two, and a few tales) and it is beautiful too :)
Hey, I noticed you like Haruki Murakami a lot. For a person who never read anything from him, which books you suggest to start? Love your blog, keep up the awesome work. Thanks for doing it!
I would say Kafka on the shore. It’s my favourite from him. Beautiful book, full of poetry and very dreamy. If you want something shorter, I would say Norwegian Wood.
Hope you love him, and his books, as me :)
Can you please tell me a few books to read?
The Catcher in the Rye, J.D. Salinger: It shows you what a teenager thinks. His fears, what does he loves and how can they react.
On the Road, Jack Kerouac: The author can make you feel that you are traveling on the routes of United States in late 40s. He can make you feel free.
High Fidelity, Nick Hornby: I love music and this is a perfect book for music lovers. In the end, is a book about love, but in the middle of it is full of songs.
Ham on Rye, Charles Bukowski: Hank is one of my favorites writers (his poetry is amazing) and this is an autobiography. Every anecdote makes us understand why Bukowski thinks as he does.
A Moveable Feast, Ernest Hemingway: This book narrates Hemingway’s life in París in the 20s as an expatriate writer. You can read it 30 times.
“Oh, I would never dream of assuming I know all Hogwarts’ secrets, Igor. Only this morning, for instance, I took a wrong turn on the way to the bathroom and found myself in a beautifully proportioned room I had never seen before, containing a really rather magnificent collection of chamberpots. When I went back to investigate more closely, I discovered that the room had vanished. But I must keep an eye out for it. Possibly it is only accessible at five thirty in the morning. Or it may only appear at the quarter moon - or when the seeker has an exceptionally full bladder. (Albus Dumbledore)”
– J.K. Rowling
“I wanted so badly to lie down next to her on the couch, to wrap my arms around her and sleep. Not fuck, like in those movies. Not even have sex. Just sleep together in the most innocent sense of the phrase. But I lacked the courage and she had a boyfriend and I was gawky and she was gorgeous and I was hopelessly boring and she was endlessly fascinating. So I walked back to my room and collapsed on the bottom bunk, thinking that if people were rain, I was drizzle and she was hurricane.”
– John Green, Looking for Alaska
