What are some of your favorite opening lines from a book?
"You must not tell anyone," my mother said, "what I am about to tell you. In China your father had a sister who killed herself. She jumped into the family well. We say that your father has all brothers because it is as if she had never been born."
from "The Woman Warrior" by Maxine Hong Kingston
>KER-PLUNK! My turd slammed into the toilet water, showering my hairy ass with piss-water. In some act of divine mercy, the utter mess of chipotle-infused garbage I had eaten the previous afternoon had managed to solidify itself into one giant log, rather than tormenting me for hours as a greasy stew. I knew that this was somehow a lucky day. A red letter day.
The Bell Jar, Sylvia Plath
Gimme some opinions. I've got these from Goodwill but don't want to waste time or space in case they aren't worth reading.

"I gotta drink a lot of beer and eat a lot of pizza pies and French-fried potatoes to keep a gut like this and all them little fuckers fed. I got a hairy ass and it sure cakes up crusty. But I just don't believe in wipin' when I got a freaky little son of a bitch like you to eat it out for me. HOWL"
I don't get it.
Im looking for something in this genre what works well as an audiobook,or even better than reading it maybe.
Something like the house of leaves?
When I say like the house of leaves I mean something what gives you that creepy eerie feeling.But works well through audio.
I imagine that I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream would be good.
Definitely The Fall of the House of Usher. It reads like it was made to be heard read aloud. He even wrote the final phrase in all caps in the original script, ostensibly indicating the reader should hear it in a booming, horror-movie-preview-guy type voice. If an audio version included a couple key sound effects, it would really be terrific.
could you recommend me a book about the feelings a man can have for a girl? I've already read Lolita.
I can't read philosophy for the life of me, nor is it what I want to do at the moment (it took me a month to read "On the Fourfold Root of the Principle of Sufficient Reason" and I can't remember a bloody thing).

I'm sorry I forgot this man's name.
Could anyone help?
