    "the Bell Jar" S.plath

       "The Bell Jar" by Sylvia Plath. I was blown away by her style of writing, beautiful, amazing  voice of a poet  narrating a story in proze. Be careful though, this is an authobiographical novel about Plath's struggle with suicidal depression, and it will...

    On Bullshit

    Written by a prominent moral philosopher, Professor Emeritus Harry Frankfurt of Princeton University, this is quite some book. For starters it's about a 30-something page academic paper published in this tiny pocketbook sized hardback edition. Only a famous in-house scholar...

    I Really Enjoyed...

    The World Without Us by Alan Wiesman. I found it to be really interesting, as a matter of fact it's now one of my favorite books. Unlike my usual way of reading, I read this sporadically and gave myself time to ruminate over what I'd read, and over all it was seriously...

    The Golden Bough

    A nineteenth century classic written by the Scottish anthropologist James Frazer. A large tome whose content is the mythology of northern and southern Europe, with an odd tale from elsewhere as well. Like almost all of his contemporaries, Frazer does not write all that well, and...
