Getting near the end, have like 200 more pages to go. What scope this story has
How one man (King) has such insight and creative connotation around the polar forces of good and evil is astounding. Not to mention the sociological ramifications he creates after the survivors settle in Boulder and Las Vegas.
When I finish the book, I will give my own personal choices for the cast of characters for an updated movie
I have to read The Joke next month for school, so thought I would finally break in to reading Milan Kundera by starting with The Unbeareable Lightness of Being this week. Probably gonna check out the movie with DDL afterwards, always kept myself from watching it because I hadn't read the book.
This has been on my bookshelf for like 8 years so I finally decided to read it since I have some free time over break. Some of the subject matter definitely went over my head because I don't have a particularly keen scientific mind but it was definitely a cool book. Space and science can be some really trippy shit and at points it was hard to believe that the theories he discussed aren't considered science fiction.
Just started reading Mikhail Bulgakov "The Master and Margarita". So far really amazing, almost perfect.It requires some knowledge of history, religion. I always felt like idiot, because my all family and some best friends have read this book.
I started reading George Orwell's 1984 last night.
Orwell is seriously a genius with the pen. His descriptions of things, such as how Oceania looks, all grey and hideous, makes me, as a reader, feel like I'm there. It's incredible.
I wish I had read this novel in high school like most of my friends did. Everyone I've spoken to about it wants to ruin the story for me by telling me what happens.
