This book made me come to my mind the following quote: it is easier breaking atoms than prejudices. This quote was said by Albert Einstein many years ago, but matches perfectly with the sharp meaning of this novel titled The Underground Railroad. The author is Colson Whitehead, namely the winner of Pulitzer prize and National Book Award 2017. His novel has been the only book to win these prizes during the past twenty years. If you are a new autho...

This book is the brightest example about how a traditionally published author may become famous internationally. Even though this is not my favourite genre, I must admit that the book is perfect. Both in the plot and in the written language. I never read a book written in a so perfect English. Hence, about this, there are two options: or the author has a great writing talent or the editor of the traditional publisher did a great editing work. How...

Here I am with a new book review to push readers to defeat the digital alienation. That is a review about a book written in the Italian language, by Italian author Paolo Giordano.

That is a novel about two children (first), two teens (during) and tw...

When I started reading this book, I didn’t consider it very seriously. Indeed, the first chapters were too private and they seemed like a personal confession you can easily find on your Facebook timeline. However, when I continued reading, I discovered an enjoyable, helpful and interesting autobiography about a still unknown and scarcely explored mental disorder, namely ADHD (Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder). I am talking about Adderal...

Do you want to really know why I read this book? Well, my reply is fairly simple: because I wanted to learn about making money online through the Internet. The first thing which caught my interest was the title containing a nearly magical keyword for me: Internet. I thought that I would have found helpful explanations about how to use social media and the web to make money, instead I found other things, surely helpful, but not what I was looking ...

This is the best psychological thriller I ever read in my life. Well written, well engineered and with a very gripping plot. I am discussing about the book titled Hellen Back The Attic by Vicki Zell. I have already talked about this book in a book description accompanied by the excerpt, but only when I read it, I really appreciated the high literary value of this novel. Yes, this book is worth to be read one time, at least, and many times, also. ...
