Joseph Heller – God Knows

Joseph Heller – God Knows September 10, 2019

Score: 10/10  This used to be my second favourite book, and it’s amongst those rare history lessons you’ll never forget. But I want to talk about something else today. David’s story.  This God’s son; prodigy of musical instruments, courage, ambition (but that’s good when you are a man, isn’t it?) and manual weapons (then again with that huge of hands…) gets seduced by that instrument of a devil – woman. And gets punished, because he broke, what, basically all 10…

Matt Haig – How to Stop Time

Matt Haig – How to Stop Time August 20, 2019

Score: 9/10 (possibly 10)  There is nothing quite like finishing a good book.  It’s almost midnight and you know you gonna be tired tomorrow, but still, it’s only what? 20 pages? You gauge by the look of the book.  You check again if there isn’t some acknowledgments or something, which you certainly won’t be reading, to learn it’s probably even less.   And you read.   No, you don’t read it anymore, you flight over it, because you just HAVE…

Aldous Huxley – The Doors of Perception & Heaven and Hell

Aldous Huxley – The Doors of Perception & Heaven and Hell August 8, 2019

Score: 10/10  Let me blow your mind!  (Now, you need to sing it very same cheerful way Gwen Stefani used to, in that wonderful, COMPLETELY UNRELATED, song I hope you have playing in your head now.) And why not? Why not combine those two books, since they elaborating on the same topic.  And why not combine that with this song?  I will tell you why not! Because it’s a EFFFIN’ disgrace! THAT’S WHY!     Aldous Huxley will take you…

Aldous Huxley – Eyeless in Gaza

Aldous Huxley – Eyeless in Gaza August 6, 2019

Score: 10/10 I’m doing it wrong, of course. I have started with his last book (Island) and that’s similar sin than reading the end of the book first.  It is twice as bad with Huxley, who’s last book (“still on the Island Mirko?”) is sort of a summary of all the best thoughts he ever had.  Also, his last book (ISLAND) is an application of his understanding that being plain doesn’t neccessary has to be a mark of a foolish…

Erasmus – Praise of Folly

Erasmus – Praise of Folly November 23, 2018

Score: 10/10 Erasmus was, obviously, a heavy metal punker taken to extreme! That we know… …or do we? You might have spent a semester abroad in the name of this good GOOOOOOD man, but do you even know who he was? Ah, you don’t. Never mind! Just listen to this song (help yourself out with this and come back to educate yourself a tiny bit more. Back already? Ah, I hoped you will listen also some other of their songs and maybe…

Alexandre Dumas – The Count of Monte Cristo

Alexandre Dumas – The Count of Monte Cristo September 6, 2018

Score: 10/10 (Yeah, don’t do that! (Don’t read him like that!) It’s kind of funny, I’ll admit that, but it’s inappropriate towards such an artist as this one!) And I know I’m risking to be accused of being too generous, but this one is for REAL! Also, it is this book that gave me the reason to try to focus on the bright side and to try feed you with as many 10s (and similars) as possible. Count, when not…

Mario Puzo – The Sicilian

Mario Puzo – The Sicilian September 5, 2018

Score: 10/10 Of course I haven’t forgotten. How could I? This is a ultimate romantic story and should I ever make the movie (trust me I should) it would have to be this one (cause that thing starring Christopher Lambert has no right to be associated with this masterpiece). (Mario Puzo was friend of Joseph Heller (who turned out to be horrible name-dropper, which doesn’t make any sense as you would expect people to drop HIS name) and the amount…

Joseph Heller – Picture This

Joseph Heller – Picture This August 29, 2018

Score: 10/10 It was a love at the first sight! I was something like 16 when I read “It was a love at the first sight” sentence for the first time and although I was able to get surprising lot of an action (wink wink) for that shy of a guy, I still consider Heller’s Catch 22 to be the best thing I was able to get hold of at that age. Summary: “Picture This” is a shallow beating of…
