Cartea mea preferata este ''Femeia nisipurilor'' [Prin care ne este demonstrata ''Convietuirea in caverna'' ca fiind un lucru ce poate duce la pierderea rationalitatii, intr-un mediu nefavorabil din... nisip; Un om de stiinta ajuns acolo pentru a face noi descoperiri privind insectele ramane prizonier, fara familie, fara apa, fara prieteni.. O casa intr-o groapa de nisip , o femeie supusa ii devin noul camin.. Singura consolare.. Niste sake, niste ganduri... spre a merge mai departe ]

Mai trebuie sa termin ''Harta arsa'' [mai am vreo 30 pagini] si o sa am toate cartile lui la activ.
Altcineva care a citit cartile lui? Just say your opinion about your fave book or whatever ...
