Any great "really out there" kind of literature? Something that is not really structured, something really weird? I'm new to reading, but reading classics isn't cutting it for me.
Is this series worth checking out? At 4,250 pages its a pretty large investment.
I read it when I was in highschool.
I greatly enjoyed it, however I have only read it once, which says a lot, considering I have read other sagas I enjoy at least 5 times.
The ending will piss you off.
Go fucking read it.
Rest of books in packing boxes, this is my current bedside stack
Post good books, fiction or nonfiction, about war
MESSAGE TO GARCIA! OORAH DEVILDAWGS!
Anyways, if anybody is interested in the Korean war I highly recommend The Coldest Winter by David Halberstam.
Six Frigates by Ian Toll is a great primer on the early history of the US Navy, not only does it cover the military aspects it also covers the politics of the time.
read this a couple of weeks ago. It's pretty fucked up
What does /lit/ currently have checked out from their local library?
So what are some scifi/fantasy books with hot lesbian sex that are actually good?
What are some publishers that put out quality but very radical, extreme, fringe, avant-garde, extreme, weird and so on, work?
What does /lit/ think about John Rawls and Theory of Justice?
Is redistribution of wealth and equal opportunity worth attempting to reach?
Rawls acknowledges this flaw in political liberalism, how the idea of the original position only works when society decides to be secular. But, with secularism rising, doesn't Rawl's model work for the future?
Any notion of justice that departs from justice as an institution to deter criminal activity is bullshit and dangerous. An injustice cannot come from a spontaneous order, it must be a deliberate act by an individual. Rawls's idea is basically a blank check for increasing government power.
So, this is what happens when an autistic Redditer writes a novel?
I got this book excited to read what everyone was raving about. I should have noticed something was amiss when reddit was praising it.
You described it perfectly. The humor is so fucking cringeworthy and bad.
>lol mark watney is such a funny le random redditor look at what he's saying to NASA XD
Really hard book to finish.
What does /lit/ think of "Lolita"? I personally love it. Nabokov is excellent.
/lit/ thinks that since it's a meme book it's bad. it's not. 10/10.
nabokov is easily top 20 writers of the 20th century. they just never bothered to read anything else.
his short stories are quite amazing and no one reads them.
>fat pink mast
Spokesman of a generation or just another cute face?
(For those of you that leave the house) How do you go about finding a muse? I find that my best work comes when I'm inspired by or around another creative.
Just finished reading this and I need to talk about it.
What a ride!
This is best book I've ever read. Don't know why I didn't read it years ago since I've pretty much read almost all his major works. Maybe I was afraid to be let down... I feel so stupid now.
Anyway, many parts of this book blew me away, but first lets discuss why do you think Dimitri is the best Karamaov.
Does someones have that image with writers accesibility levels?
It's like pic related but writers.
