Old thread is here, with some shared books: >>7582051
What do you think of the UK 20th Anniversary cover?
/lit/'s thoughts on this piece of cinema ?
as a movie about DFW as a person - it fails
as a movie exploring DFW's ideas - it fails
as a movie exploring the relationship between DFW and david lipsky - it's weak
as a piece of pure film, an audio-visual experience given meaning by editing - it fails
seems kind of like a movie for no one. if you're a DFW fan, you will probably be annoyed by it, if you're not a DFW fan, you probably won't give a shit
What is Jule Vernes best work?
How does it feel knowing this guy is drowning in pussy?
Well he's married and he doesn't seem the kind of guy who cheats on his wife. Even if his slavishly devoted audience solidly in the female 16-25 range.
I actually suspect that the fact that he's so sexually unintimidating is part of the reason he's so popular among young women. They like John, but they're not swooning for him.
I read what is the what and I still don't know what the what actually is.
Yes, I am a literate noob.
So I've just finished BOTNS, on /lit/'s recommendation. I don't think I have ever had such mixed feelings on a book.
I guess the closest book it reminds me of is Don Quixote, in the sense of a series of weird and wonderfully interesting events keep occuring. I loved specific parts (the chinese whispers version of the tale of theseus really standing out), but towards the end I was really struggling to understand what the hell was going on.
What does the rest of /lit/ think?
ITT : Come up with a title for every chapter. Lets play a game lit
You've been through tons of shit in your life right?
Ever been hung up on a bitch?
Do you ever get that surrealistic feeling
That the man you are now
With all the shit you've overcome or been overcome by
Still fall prey to the heart
Which is a pretty silly thing and while you can easily rationalize it
The nagging feeling doesn't let go
Don't want a pity thread, just want to focus on that surrealistic aspect.
The mental aspect of how something so small can topple something so big.
>The mental aspect of how something so small can topple something so big.
There only surreal aspect to what you described is the hubris of the man who thinks he is big, yet is toppled by something so small.
You aren't goliath. Love is not David. You're just a bitch.
As am I, brother. These cold bitches will make fools and madmen of us all.
What do you need to read before you read the War and Peace?
Not him but yes. Just read it and don't expect to understand the story or the characters until 100 pages in or more. Look back on the character list often and look up things you're unsure of. It's not that difficult, just long.
Please help me find sci-fi authors from this link.
I only found:
Which book has had the most impact on your life?
My older brother was killed in Afghanistan in 03, which sent me into a spiral of depression that (in a way) led to me being unemployed, unemployable, addicted to pain medication and still living with my parents.
So probably this book.
Is there such a thing as well-written erotica anymore?
It seems like more erotic fiction is being created today than at any point in human history, but it's all marketed toward middle-aged women and teenage girls.
Is this redditcore?
