Top 3 surrealistic books

Yoann Penard

Books are the richest and widest storage of human knowledge, experience, and fantasy. Today you can easily find any book on the Internet, but what is better than a new book with freshly printed pages and the real adventure inside?

Books can share with us the experience of the humanity in the most sincere way. Reading makes us wise, intelligent and literate. Books let us think deeply and expand new horizons.

In the modern era, some people replace books with a computer, access to the Internet and, in some cases, even computer games. All the above mentioned can be used to escape the reality and to explore new, surrealistic worlds. But the thing is that modern people nearly forgot about the potential of the world of books. A book can take you anywhere you want, show you parallel universes and surprise you with a deep moral. The list below contains top 3 surrealistic books. Some of them are old, some new, but all must-read.

1. The Master and Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakov

There are numerous Russian books under the label “must-read”, but when it comes to surrealistic literature, the Master and Margarita written by Mikhail Bulgakov is a work of art. It tells the story about the Devil who comes to Moscow and, as a real Devil, makes a lot of troubles. The book is full of amazing characters and events and considered to be the classic of Russian literature of the 20th century.

2. The Sirens of Titan by Kurt Vonnegut

The main characters here presented here by a man and his dog, who get into a chrono-synclastic infundibulum where space and time are stretched. The book provides the alternative view on the Great Wall of China and the Kremlin, shown as the message from Tralfamadore, the society that tries to distort the whole human history.

3. Riddley Walker by Russell Hoban

The book tells the story about the world after a nuclear holocaust. It is written in a brilliantly fractured language and, for sure, was unjustly forgotten. Just give it a try and enjoy!
