Matt Haig -The Humans

Matt Haig -The Humans August 7, 2019

Score: 6.5/10                  Should I write this while I read it, it would be probably 8…  Meaning it’s a good times, but this dude is unlucky to be compared with Huxley’s The Doors of Perception, which kicked my doors of perception white open, leaving his book somewhat forgotten on the yard. Rather unique point of view on a life in general. It bears some deep points, interesting facts (?), even usable tips on…

Paulo Coelho – Like the Flowing River

Paulo Coelho – Like the Flowing River September 6, 2018

Score: 6.5/10 And let me start with this-> I’m an idiot. I should have read the backside of the book and I wouldn’t get this negative surprise. But, as it often happens, this negative surprise turned out to be an advantage. So here I go giving almost perfect score to this piece (kind of reluctant to call it a book). So what does this piece do? (Assuming you would be very childishly (and cutely too) asking “what does it (Like…

Anthony Trollope – Can You Forgive Her?

Anthony Trollope – Can You Forgive Her? September 6, 2018

Score: 6.5/10 HONEST MOMENT ALERT! HONEST MOMENT ALERT! There was a time in my life, when I wasn’t this cheerful merry well-balanced person, you know me as. “What, WHAT?!” you go once again (am I still able to surprise you this easily?!). I was a wretched man thinking that love is a sorrow and the worse the relationship goes, more worthy it becomes to fight for it. Not going to be as indiscreet as to provide details (you will guess…

Carmen M. Reinhart & Kenneth S. Rogoff – This Time Is Different: Eight Centuries of Financial Folly

Carmen M. Reinhart & Kenneth S. Rogoff – This Time Is Different: Eight Centuries of Financial Folly August 17, 2018

Score: 6.5/10 Ok, ok, I’m going to help you. I have seen you all begging for it for a while, but now I’m really going to do that. Hate to tell you, but THIS IS AN INTERVENTION! Once in a while, regular people like most of you my friends (and this is to be considered as a compliment although it won’t look like that for a while), start to believe to be shrewd investors. They learn about their bitcoins, tech-stocks,…

Paulo Coelho – Aleph

Paulo Coelho – Aleph August 17, 2018

Score: 6.5/10 Let’s go a little crazy, shall we? Coelho is acting like there is absolutely nothing extraordinary about going back to your past lives, experiencing parallel universes, feeling immense connection with the supernatural and you want to be him for a day. (Well, to be fair Coelho is actually saying that pretty much everything IS extraordinary and you have to love him for that!) And boy, it would feel so nice to write about his The Alchemist and give…
