So how do I into Hindu/Indian Literature? do I start with the Mahabharata or Bhagavad Gita? what are the novels to digest or other religious texts that allow you to understand them?
Who is the worst female writer?
As most Europeans I've studied English since I was born and have been surrounded with it ever since (from childrens shows on TV to advanced academic literature).
However, even today I still find myself going "tired" when reading English text, such as novels or longer articles. It's never the same as reading anything in my native language (even though I understand everything perfectly).
Can anyone relate to this? Does it ever pass?
Anything in this worth reading?

Hi! I need an advice. I'd like to read something in English and, since it isn't my native language, it should be something that I can handle, something relatively easy to read and interesting for a person in his twenties. Thank you!
Hey /lit/, what are some japanese books you wished you could read but can't because they have never been translated? I'm itching to practice my moonspeak and I'd love to read something good. Thanks!
Why would anyone be itching about books that haven't been translated / they know nothing about? If it's a good book it's already translated.
Anyways, just go read some Soseki, Kawabata etc. in Japanese and if you have trouble you can doublecheck with the English versions.
Sorry to burst your illusion, but it does. And by 'good' I obviously refer to popular and critically acclaimed. If you're looking for extremely obscure books then it's pointless to come here.
What am I reading?
I'm not even done chapter 2 and a can of hair spray, buzzing around, was destroying everything like you'd imagine in a bugs bunny cartoon.
How many main characters is too many?
the context for me being a story about a group of individuals surviving a catastrophic event and how they change/develop in the aftermath of said event. These developments would not be solo stories, but the would all be related, like they'd all be part of a group.
I'm going into this with the idea of "as many good characters as I can come up with" but I want to put a number on it, as well as see how many other stories I could work with and how many characters I could have.
Good examples would be...

Depends on your ability to manage them, that's all. Books don't have size restrictions like movies, so I see no reason why you couldn't develop as many characters as you want to. But yeah, to give a meaningful role and growth for each protagonist, the story would wind up rather lengthy.
this book is shit desu
i'm not very far in but should i see it out to the end? so far it's just bad western culture references, descriptions of weather, and descriptions of how totally mysterious everything is
