Book discussion Anon 12/29/2022 (Thu) 10:14:53 No.38
‘’’Book thread!’’’ Anon, what is the best book you have ever read? Why do you like it? Has it changed the way you view the world?
Corpus Hermetica: “eberrything moves, nothing is still.. birth is not the beginning of life, nor is death the end of it all”. The fact that it is as old as it is makes it really impactful to me & made me shed a tear. The things they carried: “I couldn’t endure the mockery... I was a coward. I went to the war”. Typical war book but with a really great description of the beauty and tragedy or life & war What of yourself?
>>39 >Corpus Hermetica I need to read that someday.
Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoevsky is one of my favourite books and was a major factor in my eventual conversion to Christianity. I'm not great at writing but I think primarily it has to do with Dostoevsky's understanding of the human condition and without spoiling the story I found the main character's thoughts relatable and the ending in regards to the characters' resolutions rather beautiful in a way.
I can't decide which one but one from Alan Watts. Maybe The Wisdom Of Insecurity, Psychotherapy East And West, Become What You Are, The Way Of Zen, Tao: The Watercourse Way.. I can't decide.
I could never pick a "best" book out of what I've read. I don't really know why. Right now I'm reading Congo by Michael Crichton.

Definitely Journey to the end of the night by Louis Ferdinand Céline. It was the first and only time that a book had really moved me so deeply. I think that this book contributed to change my vision of life and my way of traveling it. I have to add Thus Spoke Zarathustra to the list because it has helped me a lot in some difficult moments of my life. I always like to come back to it, just to read specific parts when I feel I need it.
