Giacomo made a comment on Gauss74’s review of Bar Sport
Bar Sport by Stefano Benni
" Bar Sport è di fine anni ‘70, ed era già un po’ nostalgico all’epoca. È rimasto un bestseller fisso per 20 anni, negli anni ‘80 si trovava ovunque dal ...more "
Giacomo and 2 other people liked Alberto Schiariti's review of Bar Sport:
Bar Sport by Stefano Benni
"Bar Sport non avrebbe neanche bisogno di una presentazione, ma spesso, come molti classici, nessuno l'hai mai letto veramente e volontariamente. È una di quelle letture che sovente finisce tra quelle obbligatorie scolastiche e se ne perde la legge..." Read more of this review »
Giacomo and 10 other people liked Ubik 2.0's review of Bar Sport:
Bar Sport by Stefano Benni
"Non vorrei fare il sentenzioso, ragazzi, ma capisco che per chi (a differenza di Benni e ahimè del sottoscritto) non ha vissuto e frequentato i Bar della Bologna degli anni 60-70 quell'universo può sembrare alieno come "le navi in fiamme al largo..." Read more of this review »

Giacomo and 50 other people liked Lucas's review of The Hero With a Thousand Faces:
The Hero With a Thousand Faces by Joseph Campbell
"I first read this book when I was 19. It saved both my step-father's ass and my soul.

I have always been a fan of mythology and folklore, and Joseph Campbell pulls tales from many cultures to show how mankind has virtually the same heroic journey t..." Read more of this review »

Robert A. Heinlein
“The most preposterous notion that Homo sapiens has ever dreamed up is that the Lord God of Creation, Shaper and Ruler of all the Universes, wants the saccharine adoration of His creatures, can be swayed by their prayers, and becomes petulant if He does not receive this flattery. Yet this absurd fantasy, without a shred of evidence to bolster it, pays all the expenses of the oldest, largest, and least productive industry in all history.”
Robert A. Heinlein, Time Enough for Love

Neil Gaiman
“Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.”
Neil Gaiman, Coraline

Franz Kafka
“A book must be the axe for the frozen sea within us.”
Franz Kafka

F. Scott Fitzgerald
“Here was a new generation, shouting the old cries, learning the old creeds, through a revery of long days and nights; destined finally to go out into that dirty gray turmoil to follow love and pride; a new generation dedicated more than the last to the fear of poverty and the worship of success; grown up to find all Gods dead, all wars fought, all faiths in man shaken...”
F. Scott Fitzgerald

F. Scott Fitzgerald
“Now the standard cure for one who is sunk is to consider those in actual destitution or physical suffering—this is an all-weather beatitude for gloom in general and fairly salutary day-time advice for everyone. But at three o’clock in the morning, a forgotten package has the same tragic importance as a death sentence, and the cure doesn’t work—and in a real dark night of the soul it is always three o’clock in the morning, day after day.”
F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Crack-Up
