Calvino, Italo “If on a Winter's Night a Traveller”

Calvino, Italo “If on a Winter's Night a Traveller” (Se una notte d'inverno un viaggiatore) - 1979

One of the most weird books I ever read, a reader is trying to read a book called “If on a Winter's Night a Traveller”. The book is partly about the reader's life and partly about the books he is trying to read.

An interesting concept, I never read a book like this before. I'm not into short stories but these aren't short stories, these are beginnings of long stories, however, we never hear the end, so we have to make them up ourselves. Makes you think.

I really like this book.
