Journey to the End of the Night (Alma Classics) by Louis-Ferdinand Celine
4.0 out of 5 stars Influential, 4 April 2014
Put aside the author's politics and drink in a saga endearingly told. This book is spellbinding. A pretty long book that leaves you wanting a little bit more. You can certainly see how Celine has influenced other writers, and it wasn't an exercise of my imagination to see the link between him and Burroughs. Don't be put off if you don't care for Burroughs, though. If you are a fan of Earthly Powers give this one a go.
The Cossacks and Other Stories: Stories of Sevasto&hellip by Leo Tolstoy
5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent sketches, 4 April 2014
You won't regret reading these shorter, more accessible, Tolstoy stories. The stories of individuals are masterfully told, the immediacy of conflict is so well envisaged, and the panoramas vividly depicted.
Early Greek Philosophy (Penguin Classics) by Jonathan Barnes

The introduction particularly is wonderful and the treatment of the subject fulsome. A great introduction to the early thinkers who shape our perception of the world.
