what are some good emotional books. I could use a good cry
I've just Marathoned the first chapter.
Why should I keep reading?
Been thinking about reading this. Is it any good?
What are good books about present events?
put simple: books that tell what's happening now just like history books will one day tell what happened now.
I'm interested mostly in geopolitics and China/Anglosphere.
Something referencing Russia and middle east (and US of course) is also of interest to me.
Anyone read Donna Tartt - The Secret History?
I did today, boy does that bitch stretch the narrative or what. As soon as the funeral starts (and goes on) the book goes to shit. Literally 50 percent longer than it should be. And aren't the characters shitty and not only because of their characterization.
What did you think?
I thought the whole part with them at the house was one of the best parts, fucked up
the rest does drag and become a mess but I also was craving the kind of over-doing it too much detail ending when I first read it
the closeted guy's descent into alcoholism (and the guy twin? I forget) was the worst part, and there only being two (barely there) girl chracters
See, that's the point, Pulitzer used to denote really good lit so I have to check it out. She is good at descriptive language in SH but character motivations, depth, plotting, convos... all generic bestseller crap.
The book took a nosedive as soon the funeral preparations started, even during the whole search, I was incredulous towards the end.
Where do I start with Carl Jung?
Hey, /lit/. Since we realized that there wasn't one yet, and its a form of education that's sorely lacking in modern day we're making a discord chatroom to be a general community of philosophy, and its general overlap with science, sociology, or other forms of theory. As well as to be a community in general.
We only just started up, but this is something that could be useful if if becomes big.
>Hey Anon! Glad you could join us for some grub!
>You're a smart guy, tell us, what is justice and the nature of the Good?
Now hand over a piece-a of my property my dudes
Has anyone here read some of Peter Sotos' work? I'm deeply interested in both his music and his lit but finding it online is a bitch. If anyone has pdfs or scans please drop em, otherwise I'd just like to hear thoughts/opinions on him.
Buyer's Market fucked me up. I can't help but reel back when I realize that Peter Sotos was a legit pedo.
Like is he truly an artist or actually just a creep? Whitehouse is a band that I find very interesting, yet the music is obviously fucking insane. Peter Sotos was in Whitehouse.
I think he could be mentally ill and dangerous.
I've occasionally seen things about him shitposted here, but I don't get what all the fuss is about. He just seems like an edgelord and likely a criminal. There isn't really anything that exceptional about that.
Is Anselm's ontological argument sound?
I was stoned the other day and came up with a really watertight theological argument.
Starting from the premise that God is an omnipotent being, we can therefore conclude that even if God didn't exist he would be able to use his unlimited powers to make himself real.
Reddit is doing a "best books" thread..
Material for good laughs.
So this gets around a thousand upvotes on reddit.
>Jim Butcher's The Dresden Files. Wonderful modern fantasy that reads just like a comic book.
>meet a woman in her 20s >she loves literature >Harry Potter, The Hunger Games, TFIOS, the list goes on and on!
Every time. Why do adult woman think reading children's literature is appropriate?
Is pic related any good?
>write 80 words of story
>write 160 words of notes I will have to take into account when I rewrite it later
