Wonderful book which is entertaining as it is informative. I particularly love how Gabor Mate uses individual stories to both explain concepts and drive the overall narrative. Highly recommend 👍

I can‘t say that many books have changed me. Death‘s End rocked me to my core and changed me. This book is filled with wonderful and brave characters. While some of the technical paragraphs were extremely challenging to read the narrative arc is out of this world. Please do yourself a favour and read these books. You will cry you, you will be challenged, you will be entertained, you will love and you will become a better human ❤️

The Dark Forest | Cixin Liu

They had discovered that the language of the eyes that Zhuang Yan had dreamed up was now a reality, or maybe loving humans had always possessed this language. When they looked at each other, a richness of meaning poured from their eyes just as the clouds poured from the cloud well created by the gravitational beam, endless and unceasing.

The Dark Forest | Cixin Liu

Human civilisation has a history of just five thousand years, yet we cherish life and freedom so highly. There must be civilisations in the universe with a history of billions of years. What sort of morality do they possess? Is there any point to that question?

I didn‘t think The Dark Forest could possibly be better than The Three-Body Problem. I was wrong. I was entertained, I was educated, I was moved and I cried. I felt alive reading this book. I have recommended these to all my reading friends. I hope they do read them because humanity will only improve the more people who do. LOVE THIS BOOK ❤️

Three-Body Problem | Cixin Liu

Truly outstanding book. From the first pages I was hooked. Three-Body Problem is filled with wonderful and believable characters and outstanding storytelling. I‘d finish one chapter and I drive right into the next one because I had to know what happens next. This book is highly entertaining and thought provoking. Highly recommend 👍

I enjoyed this book. I did feel it would have been better with a solid edit but saying this i loved the intrigue which developed. Leading to a solid ending 👍

It was an honour to finish this book. I‘m not sure if it‘s the best of the series (I loved them all) but it doesn‘t matter because it‘s a work of art. It is over 800 pages of entertainment. Which left me in a pool of tears by the end. I was crying because I loved all the characters. I was crying because Carlos Zafon had died too young. I was crying because that‘s how powerful books make you feel.

The Lost Man | Jane Harper

After loving “The Dry” I decided to give The Lost Man a read and I‘m glad I did. It‘s another excellent read. I feels similar to The Dry and I think this is why I enjoyed the original more. Despite this The Lost Man is still an excellent book filled with well written characters, intrigue and had me guessing until the end.

Every book, every volume you see, has a soul. The soul of the person who wrote it and the soul of those who read it and lived and dreamed with it. Every time a book changes hands, every time someone runs his eyes down it‘s pages, it‘s spirit grows and strengthen

The nature of hate is mysterious. It can gnaw at the heart for an eon, the depart when one expected it to remain as immobile as a mountain.

quote
Petelord

Loneliness and solitude are two different things. When you are lonely, it is easy to delude yourself into believing that you are on the right path. Solitude is better for us, as it means being alone without feeling alone. But eventually it is best to find a person, the person who will be your mirror. Remember, only in another person‘s heart can you truly see yourself and the presence of God within you.

I wanted to love this book because the message is so important. I loved the copy on the inside cover but this book badly needs an edit. Badly. I had to put it down after 50 pages because I simply didn‘t care how much the author liked Central Park.

Writing in his memoir, Memories, Dreams, Reflections, Carl Jung couldn‘t have been clearer in lamenting our species drift into future-fantasy: “We rush imperiously into novelty, driven by a mounting sense of insufficiency, dissatisfaction and restlessness. We no longer live on what we have, but on promises, no longer in the light of the present day but on the darkness of the future which we expect will at last bring a proper sunrise.
