I like to classify good books in two categories:
- The first category includes nice books that are well written, with an interesting texture; they provide the reader with all the details leaving no much space to the reader fantasy and imagination.
- The second category of books put reader’s mind in a new dimension, they help him to discover new ideas, emotions, and feelings.
“Yesterday” by Ágota Kristof belongs to the second category. It is written in a very essential style, with the minimal set of words. Not a single paragraph can be removed, neither a single word, without destroying it. If you think that reading a book is a different experience than watching a movie, this book is for you. The few words of “Yesterday” can stimulate and induce you to discover new sensations, new emotions, and unknown places of your mind. In my opinion, it’s definitively a very good book.
