>don't really have a single favorite book
>generally say Notes from Underground
Is this unwise, since the book is about a huge misanthropic asshole?
First of all - congratulations on your wonderful picrelated choices, nowocioto.
What do the interviewers generally say after such a remark, considering the fact that they probably have not even heard of Notes from the Underground?
No, just make sure that when the interview goes to shake your hand you shouldercheck him into his office door, to demonstrate that you aren't a pussy-ass faggot like the protagonist. Bosses like outgoing employees.
The interviewer probably doesn't care about what you read. If he thinks reading is a hobby that relates with the abilities required for the job, then he'll be happy.
Unless you say something really stupid like Mein Kampf or Twilight...
I've never been asked what my favorite book is in a job interview .. but that begs the question
would saying War and Peace or Crime and Punishment be a better idea than Gravity's Rainbow or Women and Men?
