Any word wrong, plz, say. ) This book talks about philosophers, like Nietzche, Aristoteles, and others, comparing their ideals with the characters of "The Simspons", like Bart Simpson with Friedrich Nietzche. Good book...

it seems very interesting. i love reading essays about philosophy in tv shows cuz you realise that you can find influences of philosophy in everything or, at least, you see things about your favourite characters that you hadn't seen before.

Could you tell me if at Internet I could find any book of Karinthy. I would like to reat him/her.

Master and Margaret!
(Bulgakov).
One of the best books in the world literature to my mind!

I'm going to go mainstream here. I've never read an entire book twice becasue of one fundamental belief of mine: life is short and books abound. However, I've read 'Jurassic Park' (Michael Crichton) twice and seen the movie more times than I'd like to acknowledge :wink:

Maybe it's the dinosaurs that do it for me, maybe it was John Williams scores for the movie that made it unforgettable but I just love that book.

Have you seen the Master and Margaret TV series? I think it’s awesome. It is exactly as I imagined it when I read the book.

Do you mind my participation? :wink:

I have seen: from one hand i was happy finally to be able to watch, not only to read, on the other hand the movie looked cheap, like the Satana's ball and Margarita's flight abobe Moscow and so on. It could be better i suppose, but i liked the main characters and i guess the cat was terrific! the exact cat! also Master is boring, Voland unattractive (i was about to fall in love while reading... :roll: )
Anyhow i've bought dvds... :roll:

The cat was cute; I had a strong desire to pet it or hug it :lol:

also Master is boring


Of course, he is a sick man, he can’t be thrilling or exciting :lol:

Voland unattractive


He is Devil after all, that’s what he should be like :lol: (in my opinion)

Anyway I enjoyed it :D
