MacBeth: Part 6- The Prophecies

The significance of this article titled 'must read books' does not in any way stresses the fact that one must read these books which I am going to enlist, even if he is not willing too. In fact, it really does not make any sense reading a book in compulsion. People who love reading, love to taste every droplet of the vast ocean of literature, know that they must read. Some people read books with a sense of gaining some knowledge and some read to drive away boredom. However, there are some souls on Earth, who just do not read books, but find themselves engraved in them.

One of my colleagues regarded herself as a voracious reader and literally, she was. She may be seen without her handbag, her mobile phone or even her lunch box, but never without a novel. The only time when she parted away from her beloved books was when she was working. It may be said that keeping this person away from her books, was like keeping a bird from soaring. It would have been like a punishment, precisely! So for all those voracious readers, here is a quick review on some great books to read.

The Tragedy of Macbeth

Here, I would take the freedom to start with this review, with my favorite - Macbeth. Truly, one of the most amazing masterpieces ever produced by William Shakespeare. I describe the drama as a tale of a man hoping against hope. Macbeth, a brave kinsman of the King is led by the witches' prophesies to harbor his ambitions of getting to the throne of the King of Scotland. His ambitions would have remained weakened and unstructured, had it not been for Lady Macbeth - his wife, who hatches a plan to get the King of Scotland murdered and secure the prophesy. And so what happens. Macbeth murders the king and that was when he begins to pave his way towards his own demise. More prophesies and warnings are made as the story goes on and what happens eventually is... Well, it would not be a good idea to break the suspense here itself. So, get the book and decide, if it was a must read for you.

The Alchemist

Another great piece of philosophical excellence using the allegorical elements of literature - The Alchemist. Paulo Coelho was rewarded with the Guinness Book of World Record for getting this book translated into 56 different languages. No wonder, there is no reason this one should not be included in this list of the must read novels. The story begins with a quiet, domestic life of a young shepherd, Santiago, who has a dream of a treasure that lay somewhere in st1:country-region w:st='on' Egypt. So he begins his journey of following his dream and what he comes across is what which makes up the core of this book. Believe, doubts, insurmountable obstacles, tests, love, despair and nearly all elements of life and their purpose have been portrayed in this story of this young shepherd... 'When a person really desires something all the universe conspires to help that person to realize his dream.' Consider reading this piece and you will know why have I quoted the last sentence. Hongxing Machinery has always lead in the mining machinery manufacturing industry, the machines such as ore beneficiation are well received by the customers.
