Why don't you already consider Alamut a God-Tier book?
how do i skip through the greeks and the western canon?
i have other books in my backlog that i really want to read.
Remind yourself that they were slavers, murderers and pedo's, hypocritical in everything they wrote, and the mass corruption we see in our world today is mostly because of their model of democracy, which encourages hollow power hungry people to do anything to rule the world.
The last two books you read are now combined into one book. That book...

"Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Old English Heroes" - a combination of "Beowulf" and "Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children."
Beowulf travels through time to the 1940's and kills Nazis with his sword. The British government sanctions him as a hero, and he goes around slaying the most evil monster of the 40's - Hitler and his minions.
Directed by Joss Whedon.
The Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man + Dubliners = Dubliners
Various short stories of the lives of Dubliners at the turn of the 20th century with special emphasis on one Dubliner.
I call bullshit on that JKR comment.
Sur this is what look like the first comment on the appearence of Hermione.
But I am pretty sure in all the seven book, there must be one moment where a comment on her skin color from the narraor or another student.
I found it a bit simple and bullshitting to just say "no no, hermione were never litterary white colored, where did you get that silly idea? I never did :)"
Doesn't anyone know a passage like that?
How can we organize a crowd search to seek it in the books?
She's just trying to copy Heller.

Honestly looks cute as hell. I don't know about you guys, but I prefer black women. This definitely explains why she's such a strong and independent young woman, she was fighting against racism before she ever fought against magical racism.

Hey pleb, what books are you reading? I bet it's something only a pleb would read.
What is /lit/s favorite science fiction?
The book is done, now we're waiting for copy editing to finish.
In the meantime, artfag here could use some help. Need a few things for the back cover:
For a novel (brief, enticing introduction to the plot) and/or for a short story collection (description of the author's skills and credentials, touches on overarching themes and specific scenes).

What do you think is the most accessible Cormac McCarthy novel /lit/? My girlfriend has decided that she's going to start reading him after I've been going about how he's my favourite author for such a long time but I was wondering what do you think is the most accessible book of his? I suggested No Country, just because of how successful the film was and it's not really as hard a read as say Blood Meridian, Child of God or The Road can be.
The Road is fast and she can just blast through teh really weird parts
but really if he's your favorite what's going on there man. He's written some fine books but I can't imagine him as a favorite level
Hey /lit/. Thought I'd share with you something I found today at Barnes & Noble.

Anyone read Animal Farm? I just finished the book and wanted to discuss it with you all!
More of these?
Just finished this book and was bitterly disappointed. The first chapter was amazing though.
