Fiction

Flowers for Algernon - Daniel Keyes

This is a fiction. The feeling after reading was complicated. I knew what was coming, but can't help to wish for a better ending. Overall an excellent short novel.

Animal Farm - George Orwell

A famous short book. Very influential if you read it at the right age.

Reading time: an afternoon

1984 - George Orwell

Another dystopia book. Quite boring at the beginning, before Winston met Julia. A lot of famous terms come from this good, "double plus good", "big brother". This is a book worth multiple reads.

Brave New World - Aldous Huxley

Dystopia again. But the layout is quite boring. May revisit it in future.

Reading time: abandoned


Programming

C++ Primer - Stanley Lippman

My first ever programming book. Definitely not recommend to beginners, unless you are a hardcore real man. The book is great, but C++ itself is... It should be one of the reason why beginners quit programming. The only benefits is it makes everything else seems simple.

Reading time: 2-3 months

Let's Go - Alex Edwards

A great book to learn Go and building server backend.

Let's Go Further - Alex Edwards

The sequal of "Let's Go". This time about web api.
