Indignez vous! by Stephane Hessel

Stephane Hessel, the only person alive who participated in the drafting of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, writes this book of clear political content.

The author called for peaceful revolution, to the indignation of political domination by the financial markets, to rebellion against cuts in social policies as a solution to the financial crisis.

Similar to the political commitment that it acquired with the French Resistance during the German occupation in World War II, calls the young to outrage and political commitment.

My top 5 favourite books

And like in High Fidelity, these are my top 5 favourite books

Angela's ashes - Frank McCourt
Chaman - Noah Gordon
High Fidelity - Nick Hornby
Rebeca - Daphne du Maurier
Los renglones torcidos de dios - Torcuato Luca de Tena

How to be good - Nick Hornby

After the exciting reading High Fidelity I was waiting more of Nick Hornby.
The book is about the thoughts of a woman, Katie, about the marriage, the divorce and the motherhood. It´s a very strange book. I have thought stop it reading two or three times, but finally i have read it until the end.
My punctuation 5 over 10
