It talks about life in general. It's based on the idea of taoism and its principles. It's a genuine mind opener

No book has been able to stain a memory inside my head, I read it and in a couple of hours it's a forgotten memory no joke.

I started it and binned it off, haha. I can see how it would good if you'd not been exposed to Taoism before but I found it a bit contrived.

CGP GCSE MATHAMATICS 9-1 HIGHER

I know I have boring taste

Just joking, in all fairness though in own opinion the quality of literature has gone down loads. Before books used to have hidden meanings, morals and beautiful language.
Examples could include Jane Eyre: I did not like the protagonist Jane (duh) but it was a wonderful book with very nice morals. It was a bit to idealist.
Great Gastby-again explores history, nice meanings, I liked all the characters except Tom. Though loads of people miss the meanings behind it.
David Copperfield-very sweet, had loads of meanings and morals, realistic not to idealistic.

The protagonists these days are really bland people, authors are more concerned about creating empty shells there reader can insert themselves into rather then full fleshed protagonists. I want to be critical of a protagonist, Nick carraway, I want to be encouraged by them (David Copperfield)

I saw it catch "every Tom, **** and Harry" the other day too :lol:

On topic, I love The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster. Such a wonderfully surreal book with a lot of lessons for both young and old

I met Henry Marsh recently but yeah "When Break Becomes Air" is absolutely amazing ... not going to lie it made me a bit emotional haha

My favourite book is non-medical though ... "The Brother's Karamazov" by Dotoyevsky
