Common threads

So I finally finished reading The Namesake. Didn't exactly regret bringing it along, 'cos it's a really really nice book. But there's so much sadness in it! Still, it was pretty much worth the last five nights of lost sleep. At the end I was left desperately looking for Nikolai Gogol's 'The Overcoat'. Having read it, I found that there is indeed more common to the two than the quote:
"His name was Akakiy Akakievitch. It may strike the reader as rather singular and far-fetched, but he may rest assured that it was by no means far-fetched, and that the circumstances were such that it would have been impossible to give him any other."
Now to proceed further than the 5th page of Manticore's Secret!
By the way, today's sunset was totally mindblowing :D. The first this trip that I very much regretted having to step away from.
Feeling: stressed out :(
Listening to: Moby - Natural blues
