I'm still savouring this book slowly, in fact I'm rereading a lot to really soak it all up. One thing's for certain, it's one helluva conversation starter, just when you think you get to enjoy your tea and read in a cafe, BOOM, you were wrong.

"There is something infantile in the presumption that somebody else has a responsibility to give your life meaning and point... The truly adult view, by contrast, is that our life is as meaningful, as full and as wonderful as we choose to make it."

I'm biased in that I knew I would enjoy this book before I started it, but I wasn't prepared for it to draw me in this fast, and leave me (only halfway through the book) with a growing sense of wonder and appreciation of science, as illiterate in it as I am, and a thirst for knowledge, motivation for research for the sake of naught but my intellect, and an infinitely more steadfast conviction in my belief (or lack of it). A must read.

Tea and Kafka; I know of no better way to emerge from this year long reading slump I've been having. Although confusing, unfinished it's still brilliant and engaging. #kafka

HiddenGemBooks I've always loved Kafka! His writing is unique and scary 📚 3y
twenty.one.peanuts @cookiejanester I'm a Kafka newbie and I'm hooked. Gilmore Girls book list is to thank for the discovery. 3y
