Recommend me something light.

Reply
  • Been a while(1.5 month) since my last book(José Saramagos Duplicate Man) and I won't lie it was a hard read, still enjoyable, now Im kinda of like in the that mood again but not quite...So I wonder if you have something light to recommend me?

    • Thanks for the suggestions, haven't seen all of them and I hope they inspire others outside of myself to read. I decided to read another Saramago opus 'Blidness' or 'Ensaio a Cegueira' in my lingo, so I'm not reading anything from you guys but I'm still reading. Thanks again.
  • Saramago is great. I haven't read that one yet.

    Try some short stories. I read Thomas Sturgeon's Killdozer! in a day. It's a fun B movie in novella form that only runs 60 pages. It's likely your favorite authors have tried their hand at the form. Always nice to get more perspective on them.

    Oh, you want to read Killdozer!? lol. It's apparently not one of Sturgeon's best stories. It's just kind of infamous for being coopted by libertarians. It's rather apolitical on its own though.

    Here you are.

  • I would suggest to read some Haruki Murakami, especially one of his short story collections. Chillest s*** there is.

  • Revisit The Great Gatsby

    You gotta check it out, classic and if you're a misfit it'll close to home in an inspiring way not without f***ing you up first, obviously. What's your original lingo?
