The Buried Giant by Kazuo Ishiguro. It's set in mythic Saxon England, when the land was mostly wild and people could still encounter ogres or other dangerous creatures. It's set in a town where there's a kind of collective perpetual amnesia, where their memories are all fragmented and dreamlike and fade quickly over time. People rarely agree about what happened in the years or months or weeks past, when they speak about the past at all. The protagonists are an older couple about to embark on an important journey to their son's village, but they don't remember why it's important or how to get there.

Currently reading "Algorithms to Live By" by Brian Christian and Tom Griffiths. Great book so far!

Now I am reading A. Dumas "Glaf of Monte Cristo", the second volume. For the last month, the desire to read has returned, I try to read as much as possible. The novel is very interesting and exciting.

The Giver, by Lois Lowry, I rated 5/5 stars. This book surprised me, I didn't expect it to be that good! It makes you be grateful for the life we have, the world we're living in

I start reading Ulysses by Irish writer James Joyce. I tried to read this modernist novel several times already, but the maximum reached the third chapter. This is a personal challenge for me that I want to overcome. I use various commentaries on this novel that allow me to wade through a very complex modernist text. At the moment I am also in college and I have to do various homework assignments there. For the last few weeks, I have very big problems with math and it is difficult for me to concentrate on doing math homework, so I turn to the service https://assignmentbro.com/us/math-assignment-help for help, which helps me to professionally complete certain tasks. This allows me to focus on the subjects that I like the most, including foreign literature.

Good luck King, it's a journey.

Are you using an annotated guide or just going in raw?

EDIT: Finally got around to reading The Conquest of Bread this week. Required leftist reading

It is very good.

Outside of textbooks and some philosophy texts, I'm currently reading Kazuo Ishiguro's Never Let Me Go.

Xenogenesis/Lilith's Brood by Octavia Butler.

Also checking out Yokohama Kaidashi Kikō, which is super wholesome so far.
