So, i was without internet for almost a month and instead of going out i did what any rational person would; i read a lot. And i mean A LOT.
And still i couldnt find The Wind Trough The Keyhole im probably going to end up just buying it as an E-book.
On the other hand i read The Martian, Ridley Scott is making a movie about it and well, i actually stopped 3/4 in because the writer isnt that good at suspense (still, the parts written like a log are spot on) so im gonna watch the movie. (PLZ NO PROMETHEUS AGAIN SCOTT!!!).
I also got my hands on Edgar Allan Poe's selected works, which i bought on Amazon, its an amazing old tome with all his short stories (which defeats the point of "selected" works). Most of my friends are going trough english classes right now so i been quoting the book non stop even tough no one gets a goddamn thing.
Also some of those short stories reminded me of that chapter in The Martian Chronicles called Usher 2, so i went and read The Martian Chronicles again (now i get all the references, one of my favorite books ever is now betterer), i also realized i hadnt read The Illustrated Man so im looking for it atm.
And thats not even half of what i read.
Ottae, Les Misérables is definitely a masterpiece! The Hunchback of Notre-Dame is also worth checking out if you want more Hugo after you're done with Les Mis.
I'm going through Hemingway's journalism at the moment—it's a volume titled "By-Line: Selected Journalism" in case any fellow Hemingway fans are interested—and revisiting Shakespeare since I got a hold of a 'Complete Works'.
I went trough the unabridged Les Misérables all they way up to the moment when the dude that is not a dude takes a shot for Marius and then lost interest on it, i felt like they couldnt stomp my feels anymore... and at the moment i was reading Metro 2034 (which has some striking similarities to it), and i was tired of love stories
. Then i watched the movie so i dont know if i should go back and finish it.
I would love to read The Hunchback of Notre-Dame but i have the feeling it would be just more low blows to the feels .__.
Any of you guys could recommend me a novel that is about action, adventure, inspirational, life lessons etc. No fictional themes, No biased views etc. Yes I know its a bit generic and all. But for once i want to sit down and read something i could really get into. Sometimes i get into a book, turns out i don't like it, so i force myself to finish it. Im not the type of person just to leave a book i didn't finish. So i want to make it right. Thx.
So you want a bland book with action adventure... but not fictional and no biased views... Just so you can finish a book?
I spend 10 mins thinking on one and i cant.... The Hunter from Julia Leigh maybe?
Or maybe Alive from Piers Paul Read but i never read it meself, or The Perfect Storm, or The Travels Of Marco Polo.
