Show me the best contemporary author your country has to offer. What's his/her best work?
Not exactly contemporary, but probably our last good writer.

From someone who liked the book, the parts where Johnny Truant is the narrator are sometimes entertaining but mostly pretty shit. Once the plot about the house in the academic writing (which slowly morphs into very un-academic writing) gets going the book is great though.
What are good books about nazi concentration camps written by actual holocaust survivors?
I had to read some of Nightmare Memoir in American history and that was pretty decent. Its from the perspective of a French (?) POW, I really liked the part where he described the march to the camp itself, I had never read about that.

Have you ever felt like Holden Caulfield ?
Yesterday I was supposed to go to the movies and the restaurant with friends, but instead I chose to stay in and sleep all day.

So wait, why did Pierre Gringoire leave Esmeralda alone with Frollo?
Couldn't the 4 of them just run away together?
Also why didn't Esmeralda realize that Phoebus doesn't give a shit about her after he didn't even speak for her, visit her or ask about her in months?
/Literature/: A competition of who is the most well educated, who reads the best works, who reads faster, who shares the "right" political, religious, phylosophical opinions. Who is a illiterate pleb for not having the same beliefs, who is the patrician.
>Not trying to share and give the opportunity for others trying to expand their knowledge, throwing stones at them instead.
I bet you all already read books that discussed being a better person, directly or indirectly, so why not apply it here and in life?
