¡Me encanto!

Think is one of the best books i've ever read. It has this incredible use of words and transitions that makes you literally addicted to it. All of what I love reading was concentrated in this book pages. I could not imagine I prefer reading this book rather than go out with my friends.

“Quien ha reflexionado sobre la muerte una y otra vez hasta el cansancio, quien se ha codeado con la finitud, por así decirlo, vive en un nivel diferente, estás más allá de las fantasmagorias de la inmediatez y los reflejos de los fuegos artificiales no lo encandilan ni lo deslumbran.” 0 likes
