The Manual - Epictetus - A Short Summary and Review

The Year of the Hare - Arto Paasilinna - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of the book The Year of the Hare:

Finding inner peace after a near-fatal Auto-Lagomorpha accident.

My favorite Arto Passilinna quote from the book:

"Sometimes, life is truly woeful."

Questions to ponder while reading the book:

What have you done out of remorse?

Have you ever wanted to change your life?

My review of The Year of the Hare:

A weird sort of wandering.

I also feel the pull of a simpler life.

Maybe rabbits have the answers.
