What Book Are You Reading Right Now? by Hathor5(f): 8:39pm On May 20
And how do you like it? Inspired by the 'What movie are you watching right now' thread, rate your book in categories such as plot, character development, themes/motifs, atmosphere, language, suspense, entertainment/educative value ...


Please don't be a spoiler though.


Give the book a rating with 10 being the highest.

Mein Kampf —Adold Hitler

I however shouldn't give rating to a book I'm still reading.
For example, Chinua Achebe's Arrow of God would have been a 10/10 from start, but the story ended (to me) in a drab way as though he didn't know where to end it. I'll later rate it 3/10 cheesy

I'll be glad if anyone can help me with any of the following books in PDF or Epub;
Trials of brother Jero —Wole Soyinka

Kongi's harvest —Wole Soyinka

Secret and sacred —James henry hammond

Recently completed:
No orchids for Miss Blandish -James Hadley chase 10/10
You must set forth at dawn -Wole Soyinka 11/10 cheesy

Educated by Tara Westover

A coming-of-age-story which is a memoir written by a young lady who was raised in a Mormon family and as the title implies underwent a change with the opportunities that education opened for her. A book about religious bigotry and how it affects a family in different ways. It is full of suspense and action and the characters are portrayed in all their complexity. The family drama that unfolds is heart-breaking for Tara Westover describes the characters and their relations with profound empathy. The story is set in Idaho and shows life in the United States as you have probably not thought could be possible. A must read.

10/10

Currently and Reading 1984 and Animal Farm. Its all about politics based on totalitarian government a.k.a socialism.
Its a book that narrows the conspiracy and deception theory of governments.
I give both books 10/10..
My next genre is gonna be horror ,am trying to purchase some Stephen Kings classics online.

Incidents in the Rue Laugier

lts an international book though but I must confess that the book is something that should be read over and over again!

10/10 for Anita Brookner(Author)

You rate a book by the way it ends? undecided

There's no right way to end a story. The story ends when the writer has finished passing his message. It can even end when the main character is sleeping.

Arrow Of God was very well written and the plot well crafted and concluded. A proud priest who was humiliated by his deity for trying to raise himself above his people. He forgot that the Igbos do not worship any man. End of story

These are classics of dystopian literature. Orwell was not only an author but in retrospective also prophetic by predicting which threat new technology could pose to democracy.

Nope, I will probably search up more of her other books once I get the chance to read other books.. Right now, I'm kinda stuck with completing my own books smiley

Currently reading The Escape by David Baldacci. His novel, The Sixth Man was an amazing read. Planning on reading all Baldacci's novels i can get my hands on. I have always had a soft spot for political thrillers.

Currently reading virtue and vengeance. I just finished reading "Man's search for meaming" by Victor Frankl last week. It's the most thought-provoking book I have ever read. a true-life story spiced with extracted real-life expositions.


Please, Anyone who has any of Chinua Achebe's book or Wole Soyinka's book should in PDF or EPUB should send to me.


my email is Bastalkemmy@gmail.com. or you can drop it here if it's possible. Thank you.

How do you like Virtue and Vengeance? What is it about?

I have heard of "Man's search for meaning" but have not read it. Thought-provoking sounds like something I would enjoy reading.

I don't have PDF books. Sorry. I love holding books in my hands and decorate my rooms with plenty of them so ...

I was reading Introvert Power before Anybook app placed a compulsory fee on their app.
It's a book that teaches introvert how to understand themselves. It was an educative read. Can anyone help me with the PDF file?

Also, I started reading the 48 Laws of Power but it bores me sometimes because I'm not a good reader. I struggle to read...it ain't my thing but I'm trying

Maybe it is not you then but the book. wink
I give a book 50 pages. If it does not captivate me till page 50, I drop it. Some people give a book only 20 pages.

The Memory of Love by Aminatta Forna

Set in post-war Sierra Leone describes a country dealing with the psychological effects of war. The three main male characters are interesting and their experience with love captivating. It is also a book about friendship and how our past influences our today. I will rate it when I finish reading it. I have been enjoying it so far.
