    1Q84 was quite the behemoth. So good though. I don't know why I refer to Murakami as a guilty pleasure. He's brilliant. The Wind-up Bird Chronicle and Kafka on the Shore are still my favourites of his.

    Jorge Luis Borges is another in a similar sort of style (albeit very brief) that I adore. I probably read a short story or parable of his every other day.

Our history is an aggregate of last moments.

    Majdanek is a possibility between Belzec and Treblinka. An extermination pitstop.

    Dachau? Nah.. too many Germans.

    Just finished "Reasons to stay alive" by Matt Haig, captivating and well written, its about how Matt himself went through depression at the end of 90ties. Highly recommend this one if someone close to you is going through depression, helped me understand it a lot better

    lol, if someone was having a depression, confessing about it on tuz is the last thing he should do, too many heartless assholes here but it is pretty common nowadays, I'm sure many of us have someone close suffering from it.

    We had so many great writers.
    Pirlo has no equal in Europe, Vidal is a champion. And Marchisio, though little noticed, when he is one hundred per cent [he too] is a champion.

    I loved it. It felt like a fairy tale, but not so easy to read. It was surely different and unique.

    Ivo Andric (Nobel Prize winner), Milos Crnjanski, Mesa Selimovic, Pekic, Milorad Pavic, Danilo Kis, Borislav Stankovic, Momo Kapor. Probably many more but these are the most famous ones I guess. I might have skipped over some. But plenty of great books there.

    Thanks for this recommendation bro. Really enjoyed it even though I took over 4 months to complete it (actually still have a few chapters left )

    Your last two suggestions have been great

    Next on my list is 2001: A Space Odyssey

    Anyone read it? Seems excellent from the reviews

    Two? What was the one before? I already forgot.

    Btw, I cannot even express how amazing was The Master and Margarita for me. Loving it isn't saying enough. It's a mind-bender. Oh, and finish it, ffs.
