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. :D
The other one was The Brothers Karamazov. Actually yeah, you didn't recommend it, I think I found it looking up Dostoevsky because of your name :D

Yes it is truly a mind bender. I will have to read it again some day to get everything i missed. Hopefully will finish this week :)

It's a magnificent book, always loved it, even more so after reading more about life of Bulgakov.

What I never understood though is how this bigger than life story, highly critical of Lenin, Stalin and the Soviet regime rise to power, can be so loved and adored in Russia, you could even argue it's peoples favorite book, but at the same time Russian people as a group are nostalgic and very protective of those times and their heroes.

That's a great book, although not my favorite.

I read some books recently. Here are some:

Factotum - Bukowski
Post Office - Bukowski
Hajduci - Nusic
Stories by Laza Lazarevic
The Catcher in the Rye - Salinger
Great Expectations - Dickens

I also read some hagiographies and some comic books which are rather art. And currently reading another hagiography.
