This book is not a memoir of Machiavelli life, but covers his political views, liberal beliefs and his reasons to why Italy failed to progress in terms of personal greed. His comparison with Roman empire draws a conclusion on how religious institutions have played to promote their civic culture and suggests to implement the same strategy on Italian socialism. Why do I find Machiavelli’s fancies the constitution of Rome instead, whereas minimal with the barbarians in Italy? Historical facts are argued enough, apparently one sided so it is hard to conclude but good to hear their thoughts.

I have read a few of graphical books in the past but this is the first time to explore on science fiction end. The Utopian world of ozone effects are illustrated with hilarious names, the background nuances are projected with firm acuity.

A story of childhood hobby turned into a professional career and the outcome of such a decision is illustrated with easy relatable sketches. I am under the graphics novella spell and today’s pick was aptly chosen for its title alone nothing else mattered at that moment. If you ask me if it’s worth it, then yes, it did with big heart. The life of the cartoonist is represented as natural as possible to share the everyday turmoils and highlights the crippling impact that could fathom on the self portrait. The main character’s despondent efforts to connect with other people alarms the reason for such solidarity confinement. My expression lacks to convey the true meaning that one might attain from this book perhaps better to leave the room for competent and deserved readers.

What is happiness in the realm of mathematical equations and where to configure the buried analogy which is entangled between the web of real and unreal perceptions. Well, this is all lodged in here with spectacle views. Not many are entitled to accuse life as losing battleground, particularly when catered to complex conjectures filled with negative connotations. Same applies for any erudite to dismiss the existence ideology, but what stays apart is the way author bridges language syntax, rationale and the philosophical concepts to justify his statements. This is what steals the show, at least to me it did with rain of words at the appropriate places. This statement is thought provoking- “Instant enlightenment after all is another fantasy born out of laziness and hope”. Appreciate viewers input on this and happy to contemplate.

The author has instilled what she wanted to convey through the medium of poems. A poem in which heroism is replaced with pseudo romantic masquerades. It is an attempt to a conscious deliverance of living beyond the poetic representation. Her poem is not a propaganda symposium as it is led to be believed rather buried in motto in the imaginations of its presentation only to be awoken by the depth of unimaginable experience. Well, the author is of Russian origin whose visionary, fusion of literal precision, parables have quenched my crawling thirst for literature. This work has hammered everlasting impression to me.

I find the Iranian poetess to be clumsy of having a composure instead desirous in satisfying her inner demons. First have to thank the translator for the effort of capturing the convincing outlook since many fail to bring the true essence of original book. Each verse reflects the wavering perturbed of sexuality, including the perils of sin, divinity and addiction. This line is echoing in my mind and admit its recklessness – “Tired of being a prude, I’d seek Satan’s bed at midnight and find refuge in the declivity of breaking laws. I’d happily exchange the golden crown of divinity for the dark, aching embrace of a sin”. What I find appalling is the phrasing attempts during the post shah era and the scandals of her polygamy affairs. So give it a go and sneak in to know the hype behind this poetess.

I chanced upon this classic book of George Orwell with a hope of knowing whether this falls under a memoir of schooling or perks of being a book reviewer or inputs on childhood experiences well, what if this is all combined together. The author had embarked on a self discovery to pen down his vivid memories with a powerful tool of simple language, witty humor and inspiring rain of thoughts. His highlights on the amount of spending over books cuts to the chase without any lengthy lecture or preachy advice. This book is an eye opener to get accustomed on different classic books where the choice of words is more gratifying to read. Now other books by the author are calling my name to tryout so count on me, Here I come.

Wonder where to start about this playwright and what to offer to justify the true shades of life. After all everything down to how well the living was and the difference it made to serve some purpose. Well, It is about Ekdal ideology that required its countenance and account of his existence which was challenged, tested and dusted by his idealist friend Gregers Werle, who enters his home to tarnish the lie that embroiled within the Ekdal family. Apart from few re known classic mysteries never tried books that deliver the flow of intended meaning through plays of such caliber which is astounding in my honest opinion. My favorite line is “Oh, life wouldn’t be so bad in spite of everything all we poor wretches need is to be left in peace by those damned bailiffs who turn up on our doorsteps brandishing the demands of idealism”. Thoroughly promising fare and highly recommended read for sure.

How would you define the life altering experience with the consumption of drugs and its repercussions gawking with loathe and misery? I never imagined of someone from ancient time to discuss this historical record of substance abuse, addictions in such a fashion. Since this book is neither a thesis for psychological analysis nor medical study, however, it resembles and has proximity towards it. Beginning with an introduction of the author background and his reasons to adopt such habit will question the behavior behind his actions. But his experiences chronicle in volumes on sufferings, self scrutiny, loneliness and dissatisfaction with life. Not because he chooses this to self destruct but to quieten the pain signals he suffers from unknown disease. A complete emotional, physical and psychological retreat is what I describe about this book.
