Disgrace by Coetzee is pretty accessible read, complex in its own way, and certainly entertaining. I highly rec, OP.

here are some books for your reading level
Turtles All the Way Down by John Green
The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie
Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell
The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

I know you'll think I'm just shitposting and yes that's a part of it, but if you REALLY haven't read ANYTHING in YEARS you should not be starting with the fucking Greeks and philosophy textbooks you fucking moron. YA fiction is designed to be easy and fast to read. You can finish a 300 page YA book in a day if you want to because the writing is usually so sparse and heavily dialogue based.

>> No.12768859

actually kinda based, anon. I'll go with Eleanor & Park.
