Just started this today. So far it seems like Catch-22 but good and not written by reddit. Thoughts?
I don't know if you're being facetious but there's actually something to this- humor is very individual, anything that's funny to a large audience probably accomplishes it by appealing to undifferentiated tiny-brain people.
certainly, humour is the crudest, least stimulating literary form. As such, it remains the province of eternal adolescents and the pseudointellectual. Any man who has not lost the ability to laugh at anything by 20 is an incorrigible philistine.
couldn't be more wrong, faggot.
humor is very relatable, rooted in undeniable truth. If a humorous novel like catch-22 or Confederacy strikes a chord with a large percentage of people it is more likely because it offers a true and beautiful insight on the human condition
I think he means that "the author's tone and diction in this book aren't easily misconstruable in a way such that it can be discussed with an air of inclusion and superiority by people who post on a message board for direct benefit through up votes rather than indirect benefit through meaningful discussion"
It's not a meme term
Are there any other authors who employ the same type of atmospheres that Celine uses? I've read loads of books on war and battles, but Celine's depiction of his involvement in the war specifically is so fascinating and "page-turning" for me every time I read it.
How do you differentiate the air of inclusion and superiority generated by upvoting from the air of inclusion and superiority generated by memeing on an anonymous Fijian woodcarving board?
Up until the reddit influx catch 22 was a well respected book here. There were frequent threads about it, people said it was one of the funniest books they've read, etc.
Therefore, I claim that most people claiming the book is "reddit" are in fact from there themselves and are trying to fit in.
Please Fuck off.
I tried reading it in French and I couldn't. It's the first book in French that was too hard for me. I don't know if I'm just bad at French or have gotten much worse of it, but I could manage Sartre and Camus fine while for Journée I could only do it with a dictionary by my side.
No, I'm the guy the tripfag called out, and I accept the shrekking I've been giving - I'll never interact with the French language again.
That guy you're replying to is just someone who seems to hate tripfags.
3/5. Needlessly long and descriptive. When hes on point hes brilliant - the part about marking the good from the bad (in regards to the man sacrificing his life to provide for the faraway girl) almost got me.
