(Multiple selections totally ok)

1. My Struggle, Vol. 2. Knausgaard
2. Blood Meridian. McCarthy
3. Gravity's Rainbow. Pynchon
4. Moby Dick. Melville
5. Snuff. Pelevin
6. Mythology. Hamilton (Prelude to The Greeks)
7. The Pale King. Wallace
8. Finnegans Wake. Joyce
9. War and Peace. Tolstoy
10. The Prague Cemetery. Eco
11. The Old Man and the Sea. Hemingway
12. The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire (Penguin Classics). Gibbon

Thanks in advance!

Thanks!

What would be your second pick?

As above, any second picks?

Take Finnegans Wake off your list until you know enough about literature not to come running to /lit/ to make your reading decisions for you. Also, you're going to end up reading all of those anyway, what order you do it in matters less. Time spent waiting for a consensus of underread teenagers with overinflated egos to form could be better spent making a start on one of those 11 (excl. FW).

Thanks for that.

I kinda thought about that, regarding FW, but I wanted to read it at least once from a totally ignorant position to see what it appeared to be, and then to re-read it once I was "ready" for it.

(I have always enjoyed reading a paper that is a bit too advanced for me, and then reading it again once more at a time when it makes total sense)

FW is barely comprehansible really. read as much as the first paragraph and you will understand what's it about.
