An #outstanding and #updated overview of #geopolitics without the #complexities of today's current affairs. A well-written and simple #analysis that does not just state what may sound obvious but also delves into #geographical, #economical and #historical details we are not aware or not being told through the media. Great read!
Reading is more than just fiction because any source could inspire a plot twist or the odd character.
I knew Kubrick made a mess of "The Shining", but finally reading "A Clockwork Orange" made me realise how the film did not really touch the points Burgess wanted to put across. It was more than just ultra-violence and rehabilitation. He foresaw a careless, abusive society, but also the frailty of human emotions and the contradictive nature of a nanny state. The book it is also written in a teen language completely invented, called #nadsat, and it is enjoyable to read in English. Simple story Burgess did not make much of but was turned in a global cinematographic phenomenon (which he did not like!). Must read!
Amazing non-fiction about the undervalued and underestimated thing that is sleep. It made me more conscious about going to bed at the right time without feeling ashamed. Very research-driven in its flow and approach.
