Callipygous (Bristol)

Hi, would love to join a book club to get me reading more. Like all sorts but especially classics.

Callipygous recommends:

The Alexandria Quartet by Lawrence Durrell
The Alexandria Quartet
by Lawrence Durrell | Buy this book
Durrell tells the same story thrice from three different perspectives before advancing the story in the final book of the quadrilogy, which makes for an interesting read in itself. What really makes the quartet however is the vividness of the characters and the atmosphere of mid-century Alexandria - it comes alive as a philosophy and culture since lost to modernity.
Unsong by Scott Alexander
Unsong
by Scott Alexander | Buy this book
Scott Alexander is always great fun to read and this is no exception - like a nerdier version of Good Omens, his asides and allusions are always fun to read and spot. What sets this book apart however is the payoff at the end where he gives a real and sound answer to the theodicy problem that shadows the story - in truth his answer is a rich seam for considering philosophy, rare praise for a light webnovel.

Ana (Bristol)

Hi! I’m looking to build up my confidence in a friendly atmosphere doing something I love - reading! I’d love to discuss and share ideas. Very much love unfiltered prose, poetry and the classics. Looking forward to making friends.

Ana recommends:

The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas
The Three Musketeers
by Alexandre Dumas | Buy this book
The ultimate story of friendship - all for one and one for all! Milady is the archetypal villain (and what can we say about Cardinal Richelieu?!) and this thrilling adventure carries human foibles and chance, as well as slow pace and action, everything you need for an entertaining and meaningful read. I have read it in French, English and Bulgarian!!!
