Julian Barnes – Death

 

As you can probably tell from the title, this book is all about Barnes’ reflections on the topic of death and what it means to us, both as a species and individuals. Morbid, perhaps, but it makes for fascinating reading, especially because he cites the ways that other people died, from his friends and family to famous authors and artists.

Personally, I’m kind of terrified by death, but I also find it fascinating. That made this pretty much the perfect book for me, which is probably why I enjoyed it. I’m sure it wouldn’t be for everyone, but I was pleasantly surprised. It’s worth checking out sometime.

Camus has some great ideas in this book about creativity and what the act of creation means to us as a species. There are some other essays here too, and they’re all equally insightful. Definitely worth reading – multiple times!
