“Find What You Love and Let It Kill You”

My fellow dear Goethe this time caught me with another book of his, The Sorrows of Young Werther.

Rating: 3/5.

This is the book responsible for Goethe’s fame but later he started to dislike being forever associated with this one. Wanna hear the short summary of it? It’s something that we’ve never heard before.

  1. Werther is a young rich man with raging hormones.
  2. He falls in love with a pretty lady.
  3. SHE IS MARRIED TO ANOTHER GUY HAHA.
  4. Werther kills himself.

I was kidding when I said it’s something we’ve never heard before (in case you didn’t get it haha I’m so funny). Yes this is your typical story of unrequited love. A story of obsession.

There isn’t much to say about it. I liked it but I think Goethe’s poetry is better.

Playlist for the Dead

Playlist for the Dead by Michelle Falkoff is an easy to read book and even though it’s based on a suicide story, I like the fact that it doesn’t focus only on the main character’s feelings.
