>feel incredibly depressed
Is there a word for this?
>have feeling of completeness bc you got to take part in a world other than your own
>know there are literally thousands of other worlds within pages that you can now discover
this is true though
When I finished Anna Karenina I couldn't leave my house for a week because I felt like some of my closest friends were effectively dead, gone forever.
Mostly depressed because that was my last Tolstoy and I'll never feel the rush of his genius ever again
I felt really down ( I don't want to say depressed, because that word's for when I can't leave my bed) after finishing The Brothers Karamazov.
I didn't expect to find such relevant life lessons from this book. I haven't read any other Dostoyevsky yet, but Memoirs from the House of the Dead is next.
I bought Crime and Punishment, but it's currently boxed up somewhere.
My gf just recently broke up with me and told me I bored her with my 'stupid book shit'
