Books after which you want to live book, like a word, can heal or kill. A work that gives a new taste to life is priceless. The fates of millions of people have been changed for the better by reading just some 100-200 pages. At the same time, the book, the author of which is disappointed in life, leaves its “followers”: dissatisfied, with pain in the soul, hating the very fact of being.
Sometimes the book makes you wonder what life is: a precious gift from the Creator or unbearable torture. Everyone will answer in their way, and everyone will be right in their way. However, the one who chooses happiness will never be the loser.
Life is just a game, whether we like it or not. Don’t take her too seriously. And if it is impossible to refuse the game itself, then you can always establish your own rules.

“Ice and fire”
Ice and fire Ray Bradbury How long does it take for a person to enjoy life? 80, 90, or 100 years old? Or maybe this is not enough? Ray Bradbury concluded that it is not the quantity, but the quality of the years lived that matters. The talented writer imagined that one day a catastrophe would occur on the planet that would change the natural conditions. The duration of human life will be no more than 8 days. The heroes of Bradbury do not expect an imminent death. They live “to the fullest”: they study, fall in love, get married, get jealous, leave offspring, and even fight. These people live tens and hundreds of lives in just 8 days, while their ancestors could not enjoy one in 70-80 years.

“Live life without limits.” “Failure is seen as a gift from heaven because problems lead people to breakthroughs.” “If it’s not hard to wait for a miracle, create this miracle yourself.”

Each of the main ones is a personality with a strong character. A heavy, but touching story imbued with sympathy for everyone, the details of the characters are vividly and convincingly written. I recommend reading.
