How is this not a most authentic and sincere first person description of our Zeitgeist?
Are there no fictional copies, or were such writings just not taken seriously?
Should I read the book?
I really enjoyed it. She had two sisters in the book who turned out to be interesting characters, her stepmother was a cunt, and the missing prince makes more sense. It was an ok book to pick up if you are looking for something light and fun to read.
Is this a good place to start with Wittgenstein? Or should I start with another book or another author?
No it isn't. That book assumes you've read his prior work.
Best place to start is a contemporary introduction to Philosophy of Language and its history, which will introduce you to a broad range of theories, Wittgenstein's among them (yes, PI was a theory of language despite what some might say; if you talk about something and state that that something is such-and-such then you're basically introducing a theory), concerning the relation between language and the world. Then you can dip into either Tractatus or PI or both. Both books are cryptic as hell...

Does this book pass the /lit/mus test for a good book?
I think I'm Kierkegaard. What should I do
What are you reading rn /lit/?
Pic related, I'm a little over halfway finished.
>Aomame spends an entire fall locked in an apartment, where the book becomes her only entertainment. Aomame's days are spent eating, sleeping, working out, staring off the balcony to the city below and the moon above, and slowly reading through Lost Time.
is it as comfy as it sounds?
It's been a while since I've read a book. So, I just want to read a classic that's funny and enjoyable the whole way through.
Could we get some actual moderation on this board, please?
>Find an editor
>Works well for the first chapter, immediately drops out
>Get second editor
>Makes it a few chapters longer
>Takes 4 months to do just 6 chapters
>Quits once I finish the rough draft
Holy fuck, what is with editors being so garbage at doing their job? I just need one person to read the whole fucking thing, but they all drop it because of personal shit.
Editors, especially freelance editors, are a meme. You honestly don't need one. Just proofread your shit a few times and make some changes wherever you think they're necessary. It takes a while to develop a sense for this sort of thing, but after editing a 200+ page book of your own a few times you'll more or less be able to do any editor's job on your own.
why is this in spanish
i bought it in an american bookshop
why is not english
Would you consider this to be the most recent work in the western canon?
its not in the canon. it's supermarket genre drivel tier. they're desperately trying to secure a deal to make a movie out of it so they can sell more copies to same type of people who buy dan brown books.
So, /lit/, how does it feel to know that people who can't write for shit will still sell just because they have a pretty face and a well-known surname?
