So, this is what happens when an autistic Redditer writes a novel?
I got this book excited to read what everyone was raving about. I should have noticed something was amiss when reddit was praising it.
You described it perfectly. The humor is so fucking cringeworthy and bad.
>lol mark watney is such a funny le random redditor look at what he's saying to NASA XD
Really hard book to finish.
What does /lit/ think of "Lolita"? I personally love it. Nabokov is excellent.
/lit/ thinks that since it's a meme book it's bad. it's not. 10/10.
nabokov is easily top 20 writers of the 20th century. they just never bothered to read anything else.
his short stories are quite amazing and no one reads them.

Spokesman of a generation or just another cute face?
(For those of you that leave the house) How do you go about finding a muse? I find that my best work comes when I'm inspired by or around another creative.
Just finished reading this and I need to talk about it.
What a ride!
This is best book I've ever read. Don't know why I didn't read it years ago since I've pretty much read almost all his major works. Maybe I was afraid to be let down... I feel so stupid now.
Anyway, many parts of this book blew me away, but first lets discuss why do you think Dimitri is the best Karamaov.

Again with these shit lists
I have finished, just this dawn, Abercrombie's Half a War, and it's his usual fare - characterization through endless grimacing and posturing of characters, ansamble cast large enough so you can play several 'who dies next' games, stronk womyn, blackhearted rogues etc. Funny thing is, it seems he's trying to avoid stereotypes with small predictable tweaks.
Not the worst he's written, but far cry from good. Better than Martin's take on the Vikings that's for sure.
Again with those grimaces. Everyone pouts, winks, nods, scrubs beard, nods respectfully towards you... it's like watching R-rated Dreamworks flick, you constantly think about everyone making stupid faces.
Still, those sketches are better characters than China Mieville could ever write.
Does someones have that image with writers accesibility levels?
It's like pic related but writers.
how do i write poetry?
i don't understand what makes a piece of poetry better than others.
Was "The Prince" satire?
I don't mean some hemingway or jack Donovan meme shit, I mean more like hardening the fuck up and doing what needs to be done, working hard, stiff upper lip, persevering, stuff. I've always read a lot of camus and whiney "what is le point" trash, but recently read The Doctor Stories by William Carlos Williams and had my mind blown. Give me more stuff like that.
We're pretty much done, goys.
If you'd like to add shit to the Final Chapter, DEATH ORGY, feel free.
Pic related isn't the official cover, but it's still fantastic.
Pop Culture and Philosophy:
Is it /lit/-approved?
There's certainly a place for it. Kind of strange that it's themed around specific brands though. If the philosophy were first and foremost it wouldn't be themed, there would just be a smattering of examples from multiple reaches of pop culture that would illustrate the philosophical ideas. When it's themed you know it's mostly about the brand, not the philosophy.
It was a shit book. They made George look like a total and complete loser in life in the book. George was my favorite character and I thought he was the most complex of the gang. He was the lovable fool, the book paints him to be a thumb-sucking loser who wets the bed at age 40.
who is the best writer in the spanish language?
Why does is say Paradife loft?
