Ok i have read some books.
Lets start with the best.
An Exact Exposition of the Orthodox Faith by Sn, John of Damascus
Really great summary of lots of theological points short explanations with to much fuss, you still need some understading of theological terms tho, its not the most beginner friendly book, but its too hard.
Marcovaldo by Italo Calvino
Great short story collection about Marcovaldo a worker in an Italian city, its funny at times and dream like at others, Marcovaldo is trying his best for his family but almost nothing goes his way.
If you have not read Calvino i recommend you try some of his more famous works who are allot more unreal like, invisible citys, he has a really distinct style and you can easily be facilitated with his books.
The magic mountain by Tomas Man
Man that is a slow book, and its full on esoteric at that, Tomas Man even rerecords you read it 2 times ones as you know knowing the second as you know its and esoteric initiation. Honestly it was too much for me. It has its moments and interesting characters but its not an easy read.
The Imagineers of War: The Untold Story of DARPA, the Pentagon Agency That Changed the World
Im not sure its the best darpa book but it an semi official history, so no real conspiracy stuff in there but all officially acknowledged stuff are presumably in. I lead allot about darpa and what it is, its not the best read it repeat itself quit often, eh its ok.
1-5 Malazan books by Erikson
Its one of the fist fantasy series i read, just because a friend of mine was talking to me how fantasy is the best.
Its fantasy and it gets worse as it goes, but the world and magic are interesting, its great prtyal of what a completely pantheistic world would look like god consonantly bickering and fighting for power, humans and things trying to become gods, no clear good and evil, just some semblance of some power that balances thing.
Vouching for Malazan as well. Hands down the best world building and character building i've experienced in a fantasy series. very difficult read, the author basically throws you in the midlde of the story and makes you figure stuff out by yourself. payoff is massive. every series i read now feels so dull after malazan
