"The Arab Of The Future", by Riad Sattouf. Fun little read, whole book just took a coupla hours.
Gone and missed: '01 B5 V6 GLX wagon, '96 FZJ80, '89 16v GLI, '84 Scirocco, '81 Scirocco S, '80 HiLux 4x4, '77 Kawi Enduro, '74 sparkling green Schwinn Stingray.
This is amusing and auto-true to the life story of life in Canada's North. I don't frequently peruse Canadian writing and this book, up until now, has been an incredible and commendable read.
I finally read this. Mother of God, I think I dislocated something laughing. It lives up to its reputation, and has nontrivial artistic merit besides. Everything is ridiculous and seedy and shameful and glorious. Also it's pretty wild that Ignatius Reilly is a redditor in 1960. You can sometimes tell that it's either not a final draft or maybe forced edits for when Toole was shopping it, but that's a minimal point, more interesting than a knock.
You look nice today.
Right now, when I'm not busy with work, I read "Shantaram" by Gregory David Roberts, an autobiography with parts of fiction. It's all about authors life in India. The book is a gem!
I am into One hundred years of solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. Nice bookd with interesting storyline. The strange, poetic, bizarre history of the city of Macondo, lost somewhere in the jungle - from creation to decline. History of the family Buendia - a family in which miracles are so everyday that they do not even pay attention. But recently I do not much time for reading books because need prepare for writing exams and essays. Truly say I used help of college essay writers sometimes

I'd heard about this book for so long but never really had the time to read it, and since is more than 1000 pages I was always running away from it, but last week I decided to start reading it and I'm amazed by it.
I'm reading it on the Book Reader app on Apknite and I'm only in the first half of it, but I really love the book so far and I understand why it's considered one of the classics, it's really a piece of art. I'm all day just thinking about getting home to start reading it again, I don't remember when was the last time that I felt such a deep connection with a book.
For anyone out there that hasn't read the book yet and likes adventure and historical fiction, this is a must-read, it's a great book that just flows when reading it, totally recommend it.
Just wanted to share this with you guys!
