I am sorry but Stephanie Meyer is a terrible author. Anyone who loves literature agrees. Anyway, The Heart of Darkness by Conrad.


If pro is opposite of con, then what is the opposite of progress?

there is a classical piece by the name of Overture to Candide composed by Leonard Bernstein that is supposed to be based on that Book.

Right now I am reading 'Lipstick Jungle' by Candace Bushnell - yet again. It is absolutely hilarious, hugely entertaining and an absolute thrill. Unfortuntely the TV-Series was not as good as the book and not as half as good as it could have been if they would have just based on the book and let everything develop the way it developed there without changing and switching characters and even their names.

I have recently finished reading Molière's "The Misanthrope".

It's a satire of French social standards, and all social norms in general.

It was a very simple book to read --- one that you could probably finish in just one sitting.

The best thing about this book is that if you read Donald M. Frame's translation of it, the entire book is literally 80 pages of melodic rhyming from one line to the next, almost like a children's book.

A worthwhile read, I recommend it.

principles of economics by Allen >.<

very useful book though.
The world is dark
As a peer fades away
The dawn seems dark
So the moon would say

In June's early rise
It shades 'way amber sky
In it's russet gold
We stand 'round and cry

For an era has passed
Of colorful hue
Red, purple, black and blue
A stream of wonder,
As we remember you

~lazy

Shogun by James Clavell. I've read it before, but you always get a better understanding of something the second time around.

Ooo, someone's getting in philosophical mode. :O

I read Voltaire's Candide for the school a few days back.

Great book, very much about criticizing the idea that "the world was made as best as could be". It pretty much insults Liebniz's philosophy that "this world is the best of all possible worlds".

Other than that, the book has a very nice plot with A LOT of twists and turns. It also has a lot of sarcasm, irony, humor, innuendos, social critique, and so much more that I probably left out.

Great book and easily a classic.

Read it!
