This book had a unique premise of falling in love with someone on the NYC subway who is stuck in a type of temporal loop. This book was mildly entertaining but at 400 pages, it was kind of too long!!! Especially since really nothing happens in the book. However, it's still a talent to be able to write so much. I really couldn't do it
page 88: "Okay, hold on. You can't just tell somebody they're dead. We have to make sure she's dead first."
This is a book about someone who gets stuck inside Slack, basically gets stuck inside his computer and can't get out, so he has to spend his days "working from home" and asking a colleague to take care of his physical body which is in a catonic state. I guess this is a commentary of life under covid and how everyone has to be in online meetings and stuff all the time. It was a little humourous but definitely not a lot humourous.
p.42. "look, I know you don't believe me when I say I'm imprisoned in our slack workplace."
p. 103: His colleauge upon discovering that his colleague is stuck in slack: "I dunno man, maybe I should just bring you to a hospital or call Slack tech support or something."
This book was about a man who is pretty much kidnapped and has to live in a sand dune. He tries to escape but no dice! Will he or will he not escape? I dunno, you have to read the book, but I already kind of gave it away!
This book was okay, I read a review about it someplace at one point, so I wanted to check it out. It’s about 3 people, and it’s decent, but not great or anything, I would skip it if I were me.
This book is an interesting read about growing up in very difficult conditions.
This book was interesting because it says to enjoy life now, and not worry so much about the uncertain future. It says to accumulate as many interesting experiences as you can now so you can have experience dividends! The author says your life is about all the memories you make, and to leave money on the table after you die is a waste of those years you spent working for them.
I'm not sure about this, like for example, being in debt and not saving can be totally catastrophic, and from my understanding a lot of people are not financially prepared for retirement. But I guess it's a careful balance, and this book reminds you to have fun and to enjoy the moment, I guess.
Page 188: "People are more afraid of running out of money than wasting their life, and that's got to switch. Your biggest dear ought to be wasting your life and not, not Am I going to have x number of dollars when I'm 80?"
