Kris' Books.

Female. Slavic mind. Avid reader.

 I read across a broad range of book genres, with an emphasis on Aus/NZ lit, Russian and Ukrainian literature, Latin-American literature and European history.


Invisible Man - Ralph Ellison This, in my opinion, is a gem of a book. It really made me think about what it means to be a 'person', of any race, who aims to make something out of his life and stand for his own cause despite the ha
rdships which may come his way. The book encompasses the differences between being socially acceptable and isolated, explores the psychology of people in general, and how much capacity people have to truly follow their destinies. I reckon that this book should be read by every person who considers themselves as following a purpose in their lives.
