5 literature that should be read once in life

The best sign to use instead of voices or words goes to books, literature, poetries, or articles.

4.Sapiens A Brief History of Humankind

This book looks like a science book but also involves the well-being of life such as history, religions, equality, investment, economy, and meaning of life. This is the story about the background of humans. This book doesn’t convince you to believe in what the book says but there is a question at the end of every chapter for you to ask yourself. This book is not boring because there are not only questions for you to think about but also sarcastic jokes that will make you smile and laugh out loud. 

5.The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas

The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas is a book about friendship between two 9-years-old boys during World War II. Although they were born on the same date, with different families, they have very different lives. Apart from friendship, the story also tells of the devilishness committed by humans to each other during World War II, including the genocide of Jewish genocide by Nazi. The end of the story may make you cry. 

The same book gives different points of view to readers because each reads the book from their own perspective. Books, besides being used as a source of knowledge, can also be used as a remedy to heal the mind. These 5 books may not be the best but are recommended for you to read once if you have a chance.
