I learned years ago that some of the best stories and most interesting novels have to be searched for. No one is going to tell you where to find them. You have to browse around the internet or library until you find them.And they are worth the search. From some, you learn things you didn’t know. Some gives you an insight in a culture not your own.
Oftentimes the books directly in front of you aren’t the best nor the most original story. They’re the most money making story. The publishing industry is a business as any other business and it sells whatever is selling and making the most money, not necessarily what is good.
The Age of Enlightenment begun over 300 years ago…so why are we still in the Middle Ages with our reading materials? We say we can’t read Medieval writings but yet we are reading the same story plots, same characters that were popular during the early Middle Ages.
Maybe the ancient Romans should’ve stuck around and showed us how to really write exciting stories. LOL! Maybe the Greek whom the Roman copied; the Ancient Macedonians, Eusctrans and Mycenaeans whom the Greek copied, the Egyptians whom the Ancient Macedonicans, Eusctrans and Mycenaeans copied was all too much melodrama for those of the Middle Ages.
It’s understandable, sometimes I have to step away from their drama for the ancient literature is sometimes far much killing, backstabbing and chauvinistic views for my taste
The Age of Reasoning for yourself is nearly 400 years old so why are we still allowing others to reason for us.
