Thinking Face“In my honest opinion, this book really grabbed my attention after I read 50% of it. Yeah, the story started to get interesting right after they lost something—their 'guest'. This book has a bit of cuteness with the cat, but not too much. I kinda think that the book is more focused on literary elements and balancing them rather than the plot. It's packed with information connected to philosophical themes that I don't fully understand. Some of it is quite rare, I believe, because famous people are mentioned, yet the content of what they discussed is unfamiliar to me. I've decided to give this book 3.5 stars! It's a so-so book, but I gained a lot of literary knowledge from it, so yeah, that's something.”
