Beware Of Pity by Stefan Zweig
This has been one of the best novels I've read in a while. The main protagonist Anton Hoffmiller, an army officer, is also the narrator of the plot in this book. Reading through the raw emotions of a person falling in contempt with his compassion and finally it turning into a smoke of guilt is what burns through this book. I've thoroughly enjoyed the read and have learnt about how people in a different time felt & thought; the human things they had stuggled within societies and those that we still wrangle with today.
