Has anyone here read this? Is this considered garbage?
I imagine that any New York Times best selling author would be shit on. is that a safe assumption? Is /lit/ just not a fan of fiction or what.
I've read Angels and Demons, and I'm sure it's fairly similar.
Like most John Grisham-esque books it's perfectly enjoyable, but it's like bubble gum. You might kind of enjoy it when you're chewing on it, but ultimately it's unsatisfying and you barely remember it. I couldn't tell you about a single character in Angels and Demons and I've only finished it a month ago. The style of writing lends itself more to a TV show than a novel desu.

I wrote a short story. What do I do with it? Can I submit it for editing somewhere? Get it published? No idea what I'm doing.
A book about a never ending library? It's supposed to be a classic? Anybody know which book I'm referring to?
It's this good enough to become an elite writer?
If you have to ask permission to be a writer, from idiots like us, with the implication that IQ is the determining factor in whether you can produce content, then no, you can't become an elite writer.
The only good parts of this book are the descriptions of hell
yo /lit/ what are some books on social engineering. I hope to be as good as this man some day .
>search for a book you love (best if read in high school) followed by "book trailer" or "class trailer"

Catch-22 Book trailer:
What does /lit/ think of this book?
What does /lit/ think of DH Lawrence?
Which version is the best? Which English translation?
