Why is he never discussed here? He's pretty good, senpai.
>>
Too English, probably. History of the World in 10.5 Chapters was pretty great.
>>

It was. Flaubert's Parrot, too.

His new book is coming out, so I was surprised no one mentioned it.
>>
>>7640080
Because he's a shitty phrasemonger, this is why he's so liked by all the plebs. Go read some real literature.

>Look, mum, I've done it again! XD
>>
>>7640080
Yeah. Kind of standard issue somewhat timeless minor novels though. I mean, he's always decent, he's very controlled, just sort of proficient and thoughtful.
>>
>>7640080
I've only read the sense of an ending, but I loved every but of it. Both hilarious at the start and crushing emotionally throughout.

I can see how he's too English for Americans though, hence he's not talked about.
>>
Sense of an Ending was boring, and I didn't get anything out of it. Only Barnes I've read. I don't want to read another of his works, frankly.
>>
>>7640531
Same. I feel like this guy >>7640150 because of it.
>>
I have only read The Sense of an Ending and found it to be great. What other books by him to check out?
>>
>>7640080
>Why is he never discussed here?

people are too weirded-out by his nose
>>
>>7642462
You can hide his nose using your mouse cursor.

I would take a screenshot but the mouse cursor disappears.
>>
>>7642400
John Green, Picoult, and YA in general. Have fun, my pleb friend.
>>
>>7640080
not american enough
