Reading books
 | 
United Kingdom clannad_2002 
During Christmas holidays I had to read a book for a contest and ever since then I've really started to read a lot. Quite frankly I missed reading and found the change from pointless minecraft building sessions to reading sessions pleasant. This year alone I've read: Tess of the d'Urbervilles by Thomas Hardy Breakfast at Tiffany's by Truman Capote The catcher in the rye by JD Sallinger The metamorphosis by Franz Kafka Some Oscar Wilde stories and Miss Peregrimes house for peculiar children which made me read all the books above as I couldn't stand the stupidity of it Any suggestions on books to read or thoughts about any of the ones on the list?

it's not physically impossible but it's highly unpleasant because you get sweaty quite easily and it feels harder to concentrate it just feels better to read a book during winter or colder days

I have a collection of his stories, so far I've read a couple and I must admit that I don't understand all of them, especially the shorter ones. Still, his works have something special about them.

I've read the first lotr book but high fantasy isn't really my favourite genre. That said, I will check check out the other recommendations :D

Ah, I am into fantasy a lot so many are in that genre :D The Watchmaker of Filligree Street has become one of my favourite books, it will confuse you at first but once past that it personally blew my mind.

there is some awesome high fantasy tho. Extremely well written (malazan book of the fallen)

thoughts about kafka?

I read up on his personality before I read his works and I have to say that they go hand in hand. His storis have an atmosphere about them like no other and really make you think after you've finished them. I have found some aspect apart from the main idea that's really been on my mind in every story of his that I've read. Like the liberation the family felt after he had died in the metamorphosis has stayed with me.

Idk about you but I usually buy more books from authors that I've enjoyed or at least the same style/genre After reading Kafka I bought the Castle and the Trial, after loving Journey to the End of the Night i bought Death on Credit etc etc In the same style of Kafka I could reccomend you: Invitation to a Beheading by Nabokov The Blind Owl by Sadegh Hedayat The Tenant by Roland Topor

I agree with you but I can't really read two stand-alone novels from the same author without feeling burnt out or getting tired from their writing style. I really like Murakami and I have read about half of his "main" books, just not in a row.

I honestly plan to read it after I finish catch22 that I am currently reading. I read the canterville ghost and other stories in that collection. Not as good as his other works but I still enjoyed them.

Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury is great to think about but my favourite book is flowers for algernon by Daniel Keyes. Keeping sci-fi try do androids dream of electric sheep.

No but I liked it as a kid, read the series multiple times. But I also read some other nice fantasy stuff like Bartimäus series and also political books and biographies. And I like the real bible.

Fiodor dostoievski's books r some literature that i've surprised myself on how much i like it. I'm really into dark and horror stories but with eternal husband i fell in love with this kind of novels. Velchanínov is a great character and isnt a role model, but u can feel like him through the book.
