Котлован - Andrei Platonov, Андрей Платонов I know this is one of those "weird classics" that you are supposed to like, especially if you are into literature. I can't pretend like I enjoyed it, because I found it excruciatingly boring and I skimmed through the last 20% - without feeling bad about it. The first half of the book was rather ok, then I have no idea what happened. Not my cup of anything.
