Post books that didn't live up to the amount of praise they got.
Pic related is literally just "I'm fucked lmao here's 400 pages cluttered with sciencey exposition for you"
This is one of those books where everyone had the idea for the same fucking plot but in the end it was one guy who went ahead and put pen to paper.
My version had the astronaut staying on Mars because he thought it would be better if the mission failed because he didn't want humanity to spread its warlike nature to the rest of the universe.

What are some books similar to Adventure Time? I really love this show and I really want to know if there's anything written similar to it.
This is not bait. I wanted to get into reading again but I don't know how to start. So I posted a TV show I really liked, or I'm looking up movies I really like and similar to books and I find nothing.

Collecting dust in safe enviroments.
I've seen streets and subtle beauties hiding
From sights of those blinded by
HD monitors radiating fake emotions and captured lightnings.
I've almost finished this book, and I quite like it.
What are other books that talk about philosophical ideas in the form of a novel/story?
What does Camus mean when he refers to "nostalgia" in this novel? It doesn't seem like he uses the term in the traditional sense.
Also, post general things you don't quite understand in books.
whats the literary equivalent of a hotdog?
Does literary fiction need a plot?
What if the author just wants to write stream of consciousness and alternate with words that make beautiful sentences, and doesn't want to shoehorn in a plot?
Surely, those too sussed will just decide on a plot themselves after reading it.
