A Book A Week Challenge – Week 38

As they say, the best things always come in the end and that’s the hope humans live with. Overall, Madeliene Thien’s “Do Not Say We Have Nothing” is an epic novel, a masterpiece, that would remain as a piece of literature that has its core at the center of Chinese cultural and political evolution that uses music and stories as the medium. This is my pick for Man Booker 2016 Prize.

Overall, “Hot Milk” by Deborah Levy explores multiple aspects of oneself that dig much deeper than the actual story in itself.
