mm So let's do it. What did you guys think I want to hear? Yeah, just your initial feelings, your initial take Liz you first. So I mean I read this book in high school and remember really liking it and I don't even think I fully understood it as much as I came to understand it on my second and now my third read. But um when I read it in high school, I just remember it, I remember things from it. So that alone should tell you something because that's been a long time for me and I mean I remember the idea it was in my head as superman and not necessarily like napoleon and so it's interesting that that kind of got transferred a little bit like that whole the nihilism, I don't think I fully understood it, I guess when I was in high school and I came to understand it better now than I think I did then, but the story definitely stuck with me. I mean there's his character just like, how he couldn't escape his, um, he couldn't, he couldn't escape that guilt. Like he committed this crime and no one knew it, but yet he felt like everybody knew it. And to me in high school, that was like, is a high school view, like, yeah, that's how it is. You think everyone knows what's going on. And anyways, it was just a weird in my brain, like it made sense in my brain back in high school and I made it make sense for me and no one really didn't read it as a class. I read it like by myself. And so I think if I had read it with the teacher, it probably would have been even better understood, overachiever lives there, Well, highlighted the future profession, I guess what. But then, later when I read it with a book club, we read it at the same time as the mark hacking murder, which if you don't know about that, um that was in 2005 and he was in Salt Lake City and he like murdered his wife and then put her in the dumpster and thought he got away with it for a while and like lie to everybody about it and then eventually confessed. And I mean there was all these comparisons, but it was like really like right in the middle of that when that whole thing was just dominating the news. So we were talking about this psychological mindset of murderers and to me that I was like, oh this is a dark subject. So anyways, as I read, I can't, I mean for me to remember all these emotions as I read it years and years ago to come back now, it's pretty, it was a it was a different read. I think this time I wasn't quite as like swept away by the crime or by his poor mind. I think I just was more swept away by the writing and the philosophies behind it then and the characters like the side characters more than just um was Kalashnikov. So anyways, that's a long winding saga of how I read the book a lot like the book, but I would give it a five I think it's really good. You can't like that. It's just a good novel to me and it's a great novel, it's a great novel and he does amazing things with it. And there's a reason why it is celebrated and widely read as it is. And there's a reason why I remember it because to me that makes it a five alone because like when things stand out, doesn't remember books she reads. I don't like sometimes things are still really stick with me and they should, but when they do that stickiness to me is an evidence of like, I love that. It's the stickiness that gives you the five and not necessarily like your current contemporary reading of it, right? But just the fact that I mean the contemporary to for sure, but because I mean we can get into it. But I mean when uh later, because it will come up later, I think when I talk about it, but like I finished it and I couldn't I've been thinking about it all week, right? Like all week I've just been on my brain and that also doesn't happen. Like I tend to move on pretty fast, like finish a book, start a new book, finish a book, start a new book and I just didn't do that right. Like I had to keep thinking about it. So I think that stickiness isn't, it's like um effect on the reader to
