Favourite books:

1. Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury - the first book I ever fell in love with. A stark reminder of the implications of curbing freedom of speech in any society.

2. When Nietzsche Wept by Irvin D. Yalom - a brilliant fictional depiction of the life of the greatest philosopher that ever lived, Friedrich Nietzsche.

3. The Road by Cormac McCarthy - the most haunting novel I’ve ever read. It conjures images which will live with you forever.
