Catcher in the rye

Tweet Today in the sportclub I’ve finished listening to the “Catcher in the rye” by Salinger. Sometimes I feel like reading the classic well-known books, even if only just to understand, why people like them so much. But I admit, I’ve only got the book because the Salinger deceased a couple of month ago. Otherwise […]

Sieg Larsson novels

Tweet I don’t like detective novels that much. After all the interesting investigation it boils down to simple murder (or simple theft). But sometimes some books are interesting on their own even in the genre, which is boring. Stieg Larsson was a human rights defender. He especially didn’t like women and children abuse. So, there is a […]

Dostoyevsky spam

Tweet Just received a very nice spam comment a couple days ago. Tanya found my article about a Dostoevsky book great. And some video on youtube on the subject. Good job, Tanya, I couldnt suspect youtube is full of video about this novel! Share on Facebook

The Adolescent by Fyodor Dostoevsky

Tweet As a normal male kid, I hated Russian literature lessons in the school. I just couldn’t understand why people do what do in the books. After the explanation from the teacher it was clearer and I could follow the story. Even then Dostoevsky was my favorite. May be because the book from the official […]
