Notes From Underground




I finished reading this book just few days ago.I found it very thoughtful read.This book consists of two parts.

In the first part::UNDERGROUND ;we come across this sick , spiteful unnamed patrogonist's describes his life and how he came to be in the "underground".In this part he describes his thoughts and feelings and also how he is superior to others.It consists of mainly neagtive and pessimistic feelings which make you think about yourself.

In the second part::ON OCCASION OF WET SNOW; we come across a day or two in his life and in dostoveskian style a "incident" occurs which affects the ongoing routine.

An interesting thing about this book is that he himself tries to question his thoughts or actions just before we ourselves try to question them in our minds and this book starts with 'I' and ends with 'WE' making the unknown reader invovled in his notes.

I would recommend reading Of Mice And Men by John Steinbeck along with this book.
