Can We have a thread about how awful John Green is?
I hate the way he glorifies his worthlessness and melodramatic childishness, I literally cringe and feel sick when I see him.
Bathos Cringe Thread General.
John Green, much like Coehlo, is what you get when you allow romanticist melodrama be expressed without any adherence to form or language. It's what you get when the rabble can read, but are not forced to read well.
I really can't be the only one who dies a little when I read the wet musings of this closet pedophile.

Let's get one going /lit/
Today has been cancelled
Please return home
It's raining out
Out by the old, red-brick corner,
there's a gutter with old beer and cigarette butts
and some old, abandoned dream
left-over, still unfinished
Today is cancelled you know.
The sky grows dimmer
The day grows older
I'm heading for the corner
into an old dream I'd forgotten about
Tomorrow has been cancelled
please stay home
It's still raining out.
Today has been fucked
Please return your shithole
It's pooping out
Out by the gold, brown-brick corner,
there's a glutter with old pee and cigarette ass
and some old, abandoned Rick
leftistscum-over, still finished
Today is fucked you know.
The Mexicans grows Zimmer
The night grows older
I'm shitiing for the corner
into an old wet dream I'd forgotten about
Tomorrowland has been cancelled :( #imsad
please stay home in Facebook
It's still shitng out
Dislike him. Second-rate, ephemeral, puffed-up. A nonentity, means absolutely nothing to me. Awful.
Dislike him. A cheap sensationalist, clumsy and vulgar. A prophet, a claptrap journalist and a slapdash comedian. Some of his scenes are extraordinarily amusing. Nobody takes his reactionary journalism seriously.The Double. His best work, though an obvious and shameless imitation of Gogol's "Nose."
The Brothers Karamazov. Dislike it intensely.

Why was DFW so racist, and mean? I mean, it is the voice of his narrator, not some character's first person dialogue.

Cringe facts on reading
>the best selling genre are romance fiction
>The author of 50 shades of Grey is worth $55 million because she wrote an erotic Twlight fanfiction, which she later re-edited as a stand alone book
>50 percent of people will never read a book after they finish school
Daniel Steel is worth 550+ million, she writes cringe romance novels. She has around 100 novels published.
She isn't cringe herself but her buyers are.
Her book is very simple, as if an 8th grader wrote it. She is the Twlight of the romance world.
I wonder how many people on /lit/ have actually read this,
I have it on my shelf along with the complete works of a few other philosophers that a bunch of brits thought were a good choice to include in their massive 40+ volume collection of books that shaped the western world.
Kant seems like a fucking baller though I'm excited to get to that

Trying to figure to out whether sex is worth caring about, as it generally leaves me confused and dissatisfied after the fact. Wanna read people (mostly men) who exalt sex as well as people who were disgusted or disinterested by it, preferably secular.
Sex for the sex itself, i.e. sex as an act sucks and is alienating no matter how you slice it.
Those who partake in it as activity are using it to dull themselves much like with alcoholism or drug addiction.
Is some version of Rory the best you can possibly get when trying to raise a literate child? Is it even possible in the digital age?
i love gilmore girls but rory's character sometimes confused me. like she had read literally every book ever but then also did all this other stuff in the town all the time and she was only like 15 or something. it made no sense

get in here lads
Could you give me any examples of novels that are at the same level of "difficulty" as Ulysses?
does the Recognitions get much harder than the beginning chapter? I read Ulysses before and am now currently reading the Recognitions, but it seems significantly easier despite its reputation for difficulty.
I thought all of The Recognitions was much more difficult than Ulysses. Like the castration scene, I had no idea that happened until I read a chapter by chapter summary afterwards to make sure that I got it all.. The only tough parts I came across in Ulysses were the 2nd chapter and the one with the girl flashing Bloom but those were also the most enjoyable.
