Kicking off this idea of spotlighted pastas is The Library of Eternity. I've always been an intellectual, so I love the idea of this eternal library, where all the answers to life are stored.
The author does an excellent job describing the process of getting to the library, giving the pasta a mystical feel. I so rarely come across ritual pasta that stands out, but this one easily is above most of its competition.
The writing itself is very good as well. It's paced well, with good phrasing, and it didn't waste time with frivolous details. It was short, sweet, and thought-provoking; all three details I enjoy in a pasta.
Final words: The Library of Eternity is an interesting pasta. It doesn't overstay its time, but it's clever writing style and intriguing ideas will keep you thinking for a while.
