    Stoner PDF × Paperback stoner pdf, Stoner MOBITHIS WAS MY BEST BOOK OF 2016 It was a hard decision it was a choice between this and The Vegetarian by Hang Kang But I had to think which book taught be the most and which book helped me the most I enjoyed them both immensely I loved them but this one set me on my path in life thus I will always be grateful for John Williams and his Stoner He opened the book and as he did so it became not his own He let his fingers rifle through the pages and felt a tingling as if those pages were alive The tingling came through his fingers and coursed through his flesh and bone he was minutely aware of it and he waited till it contained him until the old excitement that was li
