Fahrenheit 451

Fahrenheit 451 - Ray Bradbury I do not like too much the book, at the beginning, but is a Great Book. Let me explain myself.
I was looking for a good SciFi book because I'm in the mood of that kind of literature, then I saw this book in the Goodreads List of best Science Fiction Books, and as I have ii in my home I decided to start reading it.
What happens next was a surprise because since the very beginning this books is all different, to put it in short: I found myself reading a Dostoievsky Book about the future. And I say it because the main character is too well described psychologically, something very rare in a SCiFi book. Also I noted that the futuristic ambient is just a thin veil to wrap the more deep criticism to the totalitarian societies and to play with the possible outcome of the control of the government above us by exploiting our growing technology dependencies.
My final recommendation is to read the book with an open mind, you will enjoy it and it will make you think.
One final quote:
"What did you give to city, Montag?
What did the others give to each other?

Waiting for Godot

Waiting for Godot - Samuel Beckett Perhaps the most interesting thing on this book is the absolute lack of interesting things within it :). But is just theater of the absurd so I think is really on topic :)

Mystic River

Mystic River - Dennis Lehane It is one of those books that keeps you sticked till the end. I recommend reading it and seeing the movie at the same time, perhaps four o five chapters of the book per 20 mins of the movie? ;) Is an interesting experience!
