Well I am dead inside, but what's wrong with Cervantes? Also, keep in mind the value of those books (first section) is in that they kinda comprise a time-lapse in human history, and they do it in a clever and entertaining way. (Which is what I'd like to have in an island.)

I dunno, his writing style is heavy af, and his sattire in El Quijote is litteraly the death of dreams, the death of fantasy... I just think its sad (a well placed sattire, but still sad)
2020-10-31 07:14
1 reply
I didn't find it heavy tbh, but spanish is my native language. I did find The Divine Comedy unbearably heavy, and in some way also Moby Dick, but that last one because I tried to read it in the original version (kinda old english, with a lot of nautical lang); when I switched to a modern version it was way more fun to read.

It's a pretty good novel and easy to read. Reason I've read it a couple times is because every now and then I lose the habit of reading, and I indulge myself with books that are easy to read so that I can get back into reading (if I try to get into ready with demanding books, I just fail and go back to YouTube, Netflix, Twitch, etc.). If it weren't for that I'd probably not have read it so many times.

its not really the ending, but the way they delivered it, like rushed garbage that makes no sense. Maybe the conclusion will be the same, with jon killing danny but the lead up will hopefully be much better
