What Book Are You Reading?

Ultralearning by Scott Young. Found relatively fresh learning strategy ideas to try. I have also seen a great movie while surfing through movie review essays about character called The Peaceful Warrior(useful reference). The main character, Dan Millman, was a university student and a locally famous gymnast who had a dream about winning a National Championship competition. After many missteps, failures, and complex challenges, the guy realized that he had to discipline his soul character to be a better person in general and an athlete who is happy to do his job.

I just finished "The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August" by Claire North. Not exactly sure how to describe it. Kind of a thriller, but includes recurring reincarnation of the main character and several others. I enjoyed it.

Yeah, because I will describe this book as a historical, science-fictional spy novel. An extended episode of DW sans the time & space travel and a spiteful letter of twisted friendships and vengeance. Good book. I have and idea that Clire was inspired by works of Alan Po(Additional reading) becuase while reading several essays on The Fall Of The House Of Usher by him, I have noticed on the story development structufe of the charachters in general, that gave me this idea. 

 

p.s: I finished a Doomsday book recently by Connie Willis, which I recommended to read too
