Book Glimpse: Veronika Decides to (Live)

#veronikadecidestolive #spam
“Have you ever wondered why the keys on a typewriter are arranged in that particular order (QWERTY)?ā€

after put this book aside for nearly half a year, i managed to finish it in just a couple of hours (with additional couple more hours to write this). and i’m overwhelmed with excitement.

to say that this book is great, would be an understatement of the century.

of course the weight of the word ‘great’ itself would be varied among us, and considering the fact that i often overused it would make it sounds even lighter. but believe me, in my honest opinion, my standard, my way of seeing the world, this book, is, great. i rephrase in an attempt of adding a little more weight to my statement, this book is inspiring.

this book can help you with some inspirations, some new point of views, some arguments that you might never actually give a long thought about. another perspective in life. i would suggest this book to everyone i know, but maybe i won’t. because see, this book is good for everyone, but this book could be even greater when you read it at the right time.

i like this book so much that i got irritated by the fact that i can’t pick a line to be quoted, there’s just too many. but rather than quote to impress others, first i pick the one that actually matters to me:
“The only known cure for Vitriol: an awareness of life,”.

i like this book so much that i have to painfully hold the urge to make something out of it, for the sake of both battling sleep deprivation and having a well thought concept instead of these abstract things dancing in my head (note this down in case i forget about it):
young woman, brown hair, green eyes, piano, freedom. young man, silenced voice, loud eye, painting, imagination. rules, normality, chaos, madness.
(despite the fact that i can’t draw men that well).

i like this book so much that it’s on a very short list of books i would like to collect (although books are on far bottom of the list of things i would actually buy, so the statement above is just an empty words, why should i buy if i can borrow?). aaand i would like to express my deepest gratitude to SURONJEW for telling me about this book, fit my taste perfectly, deep without unnecessary wishy-washy-romance but still filled with love, philosophical without that head-spinning effect, and atop of that: characters with overwhelming passion about art.

oh you just have to read it to get my point i guess.. #surikeypost
