I think so too. Let’s just hope it doesn’t get too heavy on the philosophy. I find it hard to put it down despite the drivel, but so far it’s not as exciting as Crime and Punishment (and I doubt I’ll like it as much).
I finished Beautiful World, Where Are You. In all, I liked it, even though I found some of it tough to read. I couldn't really relate to any of the characters, but maybe that isn't as important as I make it out to be. I still found them pretty fascinating, especially the dynamic between Alice and Eileen and between Alice and Felix.
The ending being during lockdown just made me feel dread, since it reminded me so much of real 2020. But also it was hopeful.
I think I'm going to start The House in the Cerulean Sea by TJ Klune tomorrow. My mother got it for me since she thought I'd like it
Or maybe The Corrections by Jonathan Franzen. I've owned it for years and I think it might be similar to Wally Lamb or John Irving, two of my favorite authors
Two weeks have passed and yet I’m still at page 236 (of 776) with Brothers Karamazov. Every page is like 10 pages, and it’s not even boring, minute descriptions of scenery and the likes but mostly dialogue where everything that can be said in two words is expressed in twenty.
