Beschissen. Aber es hat seine Momente.

Anyone that can recommend any good modern German books? I wanna practice my German and reading classics is too slow, but I don't know of any modern German books.

It doesn't really even have to be that good, since the process of learning the language will be the main entertainment. As long as the prose is simple and close to the german used in conversations, it should be perfect.

I see the joke but I don't laugh. Repeat ad nauseaum.

Sebastian Fitzek. A brilliant thriller author, his books really capture you.

Also, look up the Spiegel Best Books list. Most of the books there are pure cancer (like "Er ist wieder da") but some are quite good.

in the german threads we used to recommend authors like max frisch or duerrenmatt.
this might help as well with your studies: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hRhf98aKsto (make sure subs are switched on)

Neither of those are all that modern. Is the language used as simple as a book written in 2000> would be?
>>
>>7663080
Yeah, it's fairly simple languagewise. But why don't you start with something shorter like news websites before you force yourself through a whole book? What's your level anyway?
>>
>>7663092
I don't know my level, but I'm at the point where I can read the majority of sentences without having to look up words.
>>
>>7663093
Maybe you could read a german translation of a book you already know as a warm up?
>>
>>7663101
That's a pretty good idea, think I'll do that
>>
>>7663123
It's what I usually tell my students, helps them a lot. Although most of them watch their favorite tv shows with german dubs instead. It's a good method if you want to learn the correct pronunciation of german words.
>>
>>7663137
Yep I already do that with netflix and proxy, but I wanted to get into some reading as well

Strunk maybe?

He's not bad but a foreigner might not get all the jokes and northern dialect.

Christian Kracht's "Imperium". He write about pre-ww1 German gay proto-hippies trying (and dying) living from coconuts on a Papuan island, then part of the German Empire. Based on a true story, picrelated.
>>
>>7663052
Another modern author would be Ferdinand von Schirach - he's a lawyer and wrote numerous short stories based on his cases. Mostly depressing. There are at least two collections - "Verbrechen" and "Schuld". The language isn't particularly hard and most of the time the stories are short (but dark!).

That be true.
