What is good reading material for robots? What is your favourite book? Starting with classic robot literature.
and every pseudo-intellectual redditor memes about it before going back to discussing how their personal morality is totally objective and correct. so you'll fit in great here op!
Catcher in the Rye is at the top of classic robot literature list. I haven't found another book that quite expresses robot angst as well as it does.
I'm so sick of reading about normies with normie mindsets. Where are all the ugly people?
Alasdair Gray's 'Lanark' is some criminally overlooked /robotcore.
>too stupid for the /lit/ starter kit
Chances are that you just don't like the kind of pretentious, pompous normie literature i/lit/erates/ always wank about because they're too dumb and cowardly to have a taste or think for themselves.
Gray said in an interview somewhere that 'Lanark' was meant to be read in one order and understood in another.
It's hard to explain without possible spoilers, but the book is absolutely, 100% meant to be read cover to cover as it's printed. Certain cues (again, hard to explain without possible spoilers) prompt rereading/back-checking, and details fill themselves in as the book goes along. It's especially cool to go back over the illustrations once you've finished; the details all make sense.
Of all the books I read in 2015, 'Lanark' is my favourite by far. When it comes to being a virginal autist/outcas/tNEET/dropout, few authors 'get it' the way Gray does. Thaw's story is almost straight autobiography/self-insert, and some of it hits way too close to home.
tl;dr read it and read it in the order it's printed. It's good shit.
My guilty pleasures are reading books about low-class trash since I identify as a piece of shit as well. Just finished Factotum by Bukowski last week. It's basically him living a transient life as an alcoholic, not being able to hold a job for more than a few weeks, and fucking skanks. Really enjoyed it.
Anything Robert E Howard
Anything Patrick O Brian
Anything Umberto Eco
George rr martin and Jrr Tolkien are quite good.
Anything frank herbert
Anything Issac Asimov
And much more
And fuck your pretentious books. If you dont enjy it, dont read it. If you dnt like it, dont read it. I enjoyed Aristotle, up until he starting rattling n abut forms for 500 pages. So I stopped reading and picked up some enjoyable fiction.
The republic was 100% good though, and I try to follow meditations as much as I can.
Reading is about stepping into another world and getting immersed in it. Not showing off your amazing skills at bring yourself to your latte and scarf club
