>I read dystopian fiction
Has anyone read A dance to the music of time? I've been recommended the series before but I've never seen discussion of it. It's made up of 12 short novels.
Or anything else by the author? Although he didn't do much other than his magnum opus.
What happened to Icyclm "The Ubermensch" Kierkegaard, /lit/?
Did he really die street racing in Sweden?
What will ever come of his Magnum opus, orgy of the will?

Is writting a memoir a good start for writting a book?
Do you know any similar books to "Millennium"?

Was he autistic? (God rest his soul)
I can never retain what I read by myself unless I have an audiobook or someone reading to me, but having just an audiobook isn't enough as the words would just go straight through one ear and out the other.
I need an ebook (or physical book) along with an audiobook to really enjoy the reading.
What the fuck is wrong with me? Am I retarded?
Thank God for LoyalBooks.
Make notes. Adjust your lifestyle, you could be killing your attention span by the means of internet, TV, vidya, <insert any other dopamine related activity that's not sport or sex>.
Write about the books you read. I like to look at essay prompts and run through a couple books for each book. Writing should your mind form more connections to and between the works you read.
Hello /lit/, I'm trying to become a better screenwriter and I want to adapt several books in order to improve my writing skills.
Can you please recommend me some of your favorite books that haven't been adapted into movies?
Prove to me that Hogg isn't an absolute literary masterpiece
Protip: You can't
I'm only 250 pages into Dhalgren and Jesus Christ i just can't.. I don't read any sci-fi and was using it for a book to read when i couldn't sleep but holy fuck does it read like some RPG i played as a kid.
Can someone encourage me to keep going, or is it easier to reinforce my mindset on all this apparently lit savvy sci-fi as total trash?
>all this apparently lit savvy sci-fi as total trash?
Just read good examples of it. Sci-fi's almost inherelty speculative aims are largely incompatible with traditional literary quality, but when it eschews speculation, it's just another aesthetic choice. Book of the New Sun is surely one of the best literary woks in recent memory.
What books do you recommend for someone who wants to go to law school? I've started reading more non-fiction than fiction.
The french and footnotes are killing me!
it's only really noticable in the first 100 pages or so, after that it's mostly smooth sailing. what later was annoying though was leo's writing about the science of history and war, because he kept repeating himself all the time, and give excessive amount of analogies for simple concepts
How much of a pleb I am by enjoying manga so much more than literature? I get completely draw by works like akira, berserk, vagabond in a way that I never got with literature, although I confess that literature was far more valuable as a form of therapy and education. I really find that literature lacks the visual power that makes movies and manga so appealing and powerful.
well, there is nothing wrong with reading mangas. though people dislike them due to the high content of fillers... like these fucking sitcoms or the stupid vampire trilogy with the apple in hands cover, where whole chapters just lack connection to the main theme etc
