I only have a plan to start reading the Crucible play ;) I only have a plan to start reading the Crucible play. True, I do not know at all when I will have free time, because I am writing my thesis. I've heard that many of my classmates use https://paperell.com/buy-thesis to finish writing quickly. They decided to buy it because they work and they don't have time. I decided that I would try it myself, but now I don't even have time to read a book(

Good read thus far. It's long--I'm 17% in and it's just now getting to when he was elected as General of the Continental Army and fast approaching the beginning of the war.

In the last few weeks I finished "Crime and punishment" by Dostoevskij (probably in my all time top-3), then I got to the fourth Sandman volume (up to now it's my favourite by far).
Now I'm finishing the first Wild Cards novel.

Been meaning to read Crime and Punishment for a while. Been planning to read soon-ish with a friend.

Before starting it I was all like: "Ok, I'm sure I'll enjoy this, but it'll sound a bit dated, slow". I was so wrong... I found it not just deeper but more exciting than the majority of today's novels. Just saying...

I’ve read Brothers Karamozov, but not Crime and Punishment. I just read a book that has some parallels to Brothers Karamozov called The Brothers K, which I highly recommend. I’m just finishing up World According to Garp so after those two books I need something a bit lighter. But you inspired me to tackle Crime and Punishment soon.

Italian.
A curiosity: the title refers to the work of Italian philosopher Cesare Beccaria, whose most famous work was called "Dei delitti e delle pene", translated in English as "On crimes and punishments" (around mid 18th century).

Simmons, The Rise of Endymion (4th book in the series). Fiction about the confrontation between people and some kind of evil imprisoned in the tombs of time, which are not subject even to the laws of physics. A group of pilgrims travel to these tombs to get answers to their weighty questions and understand their purpose.

Liu Qixin, the three-body problem. This is the first good Chinese science fiction I have come across. The action begins during the Chinese Cultural Revolution and extends to the present day. People manage to establish contact with aliens who want to seize the earth, and a certain group of people side with the aliens ...

Bernard Werber Cassandra's Mirror. French contemporary writer. Writes about our world and society through fantastic and philosophical stories and reflections. This particular book is about a young girl named Cassandra, who sees the future, more precisely tragedies and terrorist attacks, but no one believes her, and if she does, she does not want to change anything. She tries to reach out to people and change the world, along the way revealing the secret of her past, which she does not remember.
