thomas mann - the magic mountain.
oh man, this book was mainly so fucking boring! obviously i haven't grown up for this book yet. some tinkerings were quite interesting, but discussions between settembrini and naphta were mostly totally abstract for me. well, it reminded me of some other boring must-read-or-you-will-get-worst-note books from school. if you already forget this feeling, i assure you - it simply and utterly sucks!
but just to show that i'm not a pessimist, over and out - this book have, amongst many cons, one pro - it's thick, a classic brick to kill people and to build churches, ergo looks good standing in your little library shelf. (maybe not my copy though, because cover is violet...).
and now onto the interesting books, at last.
signatures are irrelevant. they are for those naive simpletons, who think that they can sum their whole life philosophy in several worlds.
