This is like my fourth attempt at reading this book. I'm strangely drawn to it, but it's just so god damn boring. I'm on page 1181 out of like ~1450. This time I'm going to finish it.

Também estou lendo Stoner e estou bem impressionado, sinceramente. John Williams é o verdadeiro expoente da prosa simples, direta mas impactante, bem melhor que o hack Hemingway.

Stayed up until 6AM finishing Stoner after I posted that. It's surprisingly difficult to put down.
It made me more at peace with the notion of living a mediocre life and dying a sudden death. Beautiful stuff, /lit/ didn't meme me for once. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Thanks, anon! I'm sure going to like it, very engaging and nice to read until now. And yes, the way life is portrayed is very... resounding, I think? It's hard to describe, but it is a very strong look on soul and its transformations, like if all life was by itself incredibly marvelous and good and that human qualities were mere cosmetic approachs with no value whatsoever. It feels like how a God would see his creations. Really nice book.
