      Back in the 80s, big business types would use it to get ideas on how to win at business so it became a corporate meme book. That's it's modern claim to fame.

        I only hear this on IST, but it is a small part as to why I chose it as opposed to War & Peace. Went through a break up recently and then had a date that I thought went perfectly until she texted me that she would rather we be friends. So I hope Anna Karenina sheds some light as to the inner monologue of a process

      His, along with Tolstys, short stories are so underrated, or at least overshadowed by the tomes. Read The Crocodile by Dosto recently. brilliant and funny. Some would say lynchian.

    I just finished the Wheel of Time series following a friend's recommendation. Some of the books were underwhelming, but the last few were captivating. Great fantasy series overall.

    Now reading Meditations by Marcus Aurelius. It is interesting to get advice from an emperor. His diary wasn't ever meant to be published, which makes it even more interesting as it isn't full of propaganda like Caesar's books.

    Almost done with the kino schizo rambling of Sun and Steel,
    and the fucking Handmaid's Tale since ive been talking to a girl at parties who i went to highschool(but never really talked to) with that is a a 23 year old gym going femcel virgin (i suspect she might even be kissless) and we were talking about books at the last party but didn't have much cross over and i think its a pretty safe bet she's would have read this
    its a good book.

      Handmaid's Tale is used as masturbation material by women, that's why it's so popular, if you haven't guessed already. Take this information and use it to your benefit in life.
