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.

2001: A Space Odyssey
2010: Odyssey Two
2061: Odyssey Three


2001 was great - profound and gripping. And for a book written before the moon missions, amazing scientific insight that held up well with the future of space travel.

Couldn't wait to see what happened next in 2010. Unfortunately that story fell flat and didn't bring much different from 2001.

Still wanting to finish out the story, I continued with 2061, of which the story and characters were even more boring.

Decided not to bother with the final piece of the sequel, 3001. The Wikipedia plot summary was enough, and even that was disappointing.

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.
