English Composition. Reading: my favourite book - One, No One and One Hundred Thousand
I love reading: it is one of my favourite hobbies. I have read since I was a little girl and I have never stopped. Reading is a wonderful thing: it allows me to travel in different world without moving from my house. For me, ending a book is like saying goodbye to a friend (if the book is nice!).
When I was child I loved fantasy novels, for example, I read all of Harry Potter’s books.
Now I prefer other kind of books, such as classic literature, Italian or foreign narrative.
My favourite book is “One, No One and One Hundred Thousand” (the original Italian title is “Uno, nessuno e centomila”) by Luigi Pirandello, published in 1926.
It is one of the most important classic books of the entire Italian literature and it is the masterpiece of the twentieth century in my opinion.
I have never read anything better of this. I have read this book many times but every time I discover new things.
I think that everyone should read this book in order to reflect on its main topics: the mask, the society as a trap, the fragmentation of individuality, the research of the true self that lead to madness, the absurdity of the world and society as well.
Moreover, the book is perfect for the teenager because of the theme of identity.
