I thought that I would maintain a list of books and movies or shows I have meant to watch or read in 2024. Will be rating them, once completed.

Reading List

  • [x] Vagabond by Inoue: Greatest manga ever. I wish he completes it. 5/5.
  • [x] The Three Body Problem by Cixin Liu
  • [ ] The Dark Forest by Cixin Liu
  • [ ] Death's End by Cixin Liu
  • [ ] Berserk by Miura
  • [x] The Remains of the Day by Ishiguro: Read and gifted it. This is the first book I read of Ishiguro.
  • [ ] The Buried Giant by Ishiguro
  • [ ] Capital by Thomas Picketty
  • [ ] Capital and Ideology by Thomas Picketty
  • [x] The Gospel according to Jesus Christ by Jose Saramago: I re-read it. 5/5. The book to me reads like a reminiscence of a deep dream.

Watching List

I tend to watch a lot of random shows and movies. So best only if I add the biggest and/or the best. This is the "watching" list and not "watching because I am bored" list.

  • [x] Shogun: Best show I have watched. 5/5.
  • [x] 3 Body Problem (Season 1): Some of the dialogues were badly written especially in the beginning. Wish it had more science, as in the book(s). But the show is good overall. Wish it had more nuanced character developments given the added character-focus in the show. 4/5.
  • [x] Spirited Away: I love Hayao Miyazaki.
  • [x] The Boy and the Heron: 5/5.
  • [x] Dune 2: Absolutely amazing. This is going to be bigger than Star Wars. 5/5.
