Is there any good book that wasn't written by a skeleton?
Do you mean skinny or dead? Cos I figure you never trust a fat writer or one with a hot wife like you never trust a skinny chef.
Posthumous writers are best, better still if they never published in their lifetime.
Is it shit?
Best. Book. Ever.
He never finished a novel.
The Broom of the System
>ends in midsentence
The Pale King

Why did he do this?
Is this book hard to read? I'm pretty entry-level but I really wanna read this.
is all character like fodyor dostoevsky that spill the Italian spaghetti
Just curious on what your thought are of this guy as an author?
>“You know, I don’t want to be offensive. But ‘The Fault in Our Stars’ [regarded by many as Green’s masterpiece] is just awful. It seems ridiculous to have to say it. He can’t think, he can’t write. There’s no discernible talent.”
>[Green] seems to have been a very sincere and troubled person, but that doesn’t mean I have to endure reading him. I even resented the use of the term from Shakespeare, when Cassius says to Brutus: "The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, / But in ourselves, that...

I'm looking for books with moral background, that may teach a lesson, that make you think, such as 1984, Animal Farm, Brand New World, Blindless... any recs?
The Familiar is probably going to be 27 volumes, about 800 pages each. This guy has either gone crazy, or become a hack. Really though, either way, it isn't good. A 20,000 page book? Even Proust would blush at that.
Become a hack? All his novels are just a bunch of magazine cut-outs and photos of doorstoppers with ~14 words per page about a quirky dude. If his first book didn't convince you he was a hack, I doubt his 28 other ones will.
Does anyone submit writing anywhere?
Most off the stuff I write is funny, I was wondering if there was anywhere good to submit things like that?
If I can, I'm going to write some more article or list type things and see if I can get it posted up on a humour website. I enjoy writing things that make people laugh, so getting it out into an audience would be great fun.
>Most off the stuff I write is funny
That's true, because your whole post is so funny and ironic. Asking on a humour website for a humour website, sheesh :-)
>I was wondering if there was anywhere good to submit things like that?
Have you heard of reddit? They have super humour, but sometimes it is quite nerdy.
>If I can...
Do you have writer's block? :-(
1) Seems like a good place to start.
2) What's with all the Reddit references recently?
3) I wouldn't normally write that kind of thing, but it seems to be a common format for websites
>1) Seems like a good place to start.
I don't know. Most of the posts on lit I don't understand, or they are just mean :(
>2) What's with all the Reddit references recently?
Oh, you don't know? Ah, I get it, you are a newcomer, too (:
Could you post some excerpts? I need a good laugh today :]
What are sum boeks that have not translated to English.
Honeydew, by Edith Perlman. I haven't read anything else she's written, but this was good stuff. Takes a while to get going, though. Lots of slice-of-life stories from a fictional American town, kinda like Margaret Atwood, but less depressing. Anyone else read her?
I haven't heard of her. Could you say some more about whom you would compare her to, what her style is, and what some other favorites of yours are (short story authors in particular) to help us get more of a sense of this author? Thanks
Guise help please..
I really love reading and i am studying literature as well but I also enjoy movies and tv shows a lot and i feel like i am neglecting my books when I watch tv...
Any recommendations appreciated
>pic related because fun
Balance. Just like the soap opera "One life to live" so are the days of our lives, like dust in the wind. Wild Stallions and so forth.
