>>13448149I loved it. Not as poetic as Musashi was, it's more of a war novel than an adventure. Towards the end the book loses steam but everything up to the last few chapters is well worth reading.There are a lot of Zen Buddhist lessons throughout the book that give spiritual insights that are rare in other books I've read about samurai, like Shinsengumi which is mostly about their will to power.

21 - PortugalBiomedical Engineering student, masters in Medical Electronics.War and Peace (portuguese)Notes from the Underground (portuguese)Mysteries - Knut Hamsun (english)Hunger - Knut Hamsun (half in english, half in portuguese)Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail 72 (english)I also have a great body, I've gone consistently to the gym every week since I was 16 but I don't take selfies because I gave up social media at 19 once I realized it was all a jerk off fest of status and attractiveness and getting likes was like chain smoking cigarettes, even though I had over 250 likes in my profile pic.I conquered my anxiety and became extremely sociable by just faking that I was confident even though I am just a very shy kid with jacked arms.Anyways I can't prove I have abs of steel and a body more aesthetic than that japanese author of Sun and Steel that gets posted all the time.Also am poor and am working full time at McDonalds this summer even though in September I'll be doing my masters thesis in an exchange program in neural eletrical stimulation.I've consistently been the poorest kid in every single class I've ever been and yet I've achieved more than almost everyone I know.And to top it all off I can't bring myself to brag about any of it in real life and this is the first time I've ever done so because I'm sure no one will read this and even if they will they won't give a fuck. But deep down I know it was the faint feeling that someone might be impressed by this got me writing. Anyways it feels good to type this out, even if it is just for myself.Please anonymous strangers give me the validation I so desperately crave

>>13450730I know the alchemist is shit. I read it because I found it a long time ago amongts some old books from my older brothers and I read some of them. The whole "follow ur dreams" theme is as stupid as a self-help book's version of it with some magic thrown in between.
>>13450730Yes, I liked GoT. GRRM's descriptions for certain things, especially anything sexual, is almost irritatingly repetitive, but the worldbuilding and story is very entertaining and well written.

>>13453436They're not particularly obscure either, if that's what you meant, except maybe Murnane. The Worm at the Core is an empirical follow-up to The Denial of Death, Woyzeck is high school reading in Germany, the Kim one is a very popular introduction to Philosophy of Mind, and the Nagel one was widely discussed when it came out.
