TOP BOOK.

The Walking Dead Compendium Two by Robert Kirkman.

The second of four compendiums is once again a masterpiece! The story never fails to explore the darkest corners of the mind within a zombie apocalypse setting and it does so at a breakneck pace and with brio!

LEAST FAVOURITE BOOK.

Absolute Superman: For Tomorrow by Brian Azzarello.

Having mostly only read good things by writer Brian Azzarello so far, this story, with Jim Lee’s exquisite artwork, was such a huge disappointment.

TOP MOVIE.

The Human Condition I: No Greater Love (1959) - IMDb
The Human Condition 1: No Greater Love (1959).

Out of the 11 movies I watched in November, The Human Condition 1: No Greater Love (1959) was my favourite. This was one of the twelve movies I planned on watching in 2021 and I’m glad I finally did. There’s no doubt that I’ll be checking out the rest of the trilogy sooner rather than later now.

The Human Condition 1: No Greater Love is about a Japanese pacifist, unable to face the dire consequences of conscientious objection, is transformed by his attempts to compromise with the demands of war-time Japan.

This was a mind-numbing exploration of humanism through a conscientious objector’s eye-opening journey through the selfish and cruel axioms of war.

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

CURRENTLY READING.

PERSONAL LIFE.

The month went by so fast. I’m not even sure what to think of it. I do know that it allowed me to slowly heal from my calf injury. I was never reduced in mobility but I did always feel a little pain. I look forward to it disappearing throughout the month of December though. It was also an all-around calm month without too many headaches in any part of my life. I have also been able to balance out my different hobbies and do as much as possible of each of them without feeling like I didn’t have time for certain things. It made me realize how much there is you can do in life and how much you need to prioritize the things you want to do in some way to make sure you don’t overlook them. No wonder there are people tend to “specialize” and don’t dare invest themselves in discovering new things. You can’t blame them. Imagine discovering how much you love doing something as much as that ONE thing you can’t live on without doing. Life would be hard. Then again, it’s okay if we don’t do these things as much as we want, as long as we try to do them. You have to learn to enjoy the process. 😛
