This topic lead to a bit of discussion on other websites when I started it so might as well talk about it here too.
How do you best appreciate a book? Do you read it in a superficial way and only look at the surface (story, setting) or do you go deeper to find more?
Most books released nowadays barely have any deeper meaning, they mostly repeat "criticism" that was mentioned in tons of other books (for example like most YA or dystopia books criticise our current society)
Is it correct to analyze poems and prose or should they be enjoyed aesthetically and emotionally?
