I'm looking for a good read. What's your favorite book and why?Submitted by FreedomsReigning on Mon, 04/29/2013 - 01:09
I can't say I've ever read a bad book when somebody's declared it as their favorite. I'm just looking for some ideas. I'll work through the list if anybody answers.
For the record, it's only fair to answer the question yourself when you throw one out there. It's not a bait thread. I'd say my favorite book (novella) would have to be "The Metamorphosis" by Franz Kafka.
It's about a regular ole guy who works at a job he hates in order to take care of his destitute family, but then one day he wakes up and discovers he's been transformed into a giant man sized beetle. The rest is a slow decline into madness and abandonment.
It captures a sense many Libertarians are probably familiar with. I'm not sure I would "suggest it", but I have no doubt that if you read it, you won't regret it.
