Ok, the old Russian Literature thread has been idle since May (and I know some of us had to read a book since then) annd had over 800 posts, so I just figured I'll start a new thread. Let's encompass all literature here, not just Russian and discuss the current books you read. I'll start. The last 3 book I've read are: 1. Mayatnik Fuko by Umberto Eco - finally was able to finish it. It's probably my 3rd favorite book of his out of 4 he has written, behind Name of The Rose and Baudolino. I just can't understand how can one person know so much shit. It's ridiculous. 2. Krasnaya Komnata by August Strindberg - 1st time I've read this author. I liked this book. It has plenty of satire and irony and I learned a little more about Swedish history. 3. Rasputnik and Sekta Egoistov by Eric-Emanuel Schmitt - Wow. I'm still reading this book, but wow. I am loving it. Rasputnik is a play, where Didro is the main hero. It is so witty, you'll love reading it. Just started to red Sekta Egoistov and so far so good. My next book, I want to try to read (try again) Sodom and Gomorrah by Proust. I just couldn't do it the 1st time.
