Literature is great, poetry, fine, but quality nonfiction, now that is a treat.

This title sounds easy. It sounds serene, peaceful, even a little melancholic. It is none of those things. This lucky crazy badass fucker right here, decided to do a thing against all advice and odds, went into a field and built himself a little wood boat, learned and prepared what he could, and just went out and fucking did it, and the adventure and insane shit he lives through is beyond what he or anyone else ever imagined.

That tasty sandwich you had for lunch today, was not actually epic. THIS SHIT RIGHT HERE is actually EPIC, in the truest classical sense of the word. And it was all corroborated afterward by the financiers... and THEN how it ends, holy fuck.

This book is why people today still build replicas of his boat and try doing what he did, and die trying it. A lot. It's a thing.

Mine was H2G2 until I read an interview with Douglas Adams where he cited 'The Sirens of Titan' as the inspiration for that book.

Now Cat's Cradle is my favourite book.

Trust me, it make's sense.

That being said, Douglas Adams is definitely my favourite person ever. I had the pleasure of meeting him at a book signing once. I handed him my copy of 'Don't Panic' and he opened it up right to the middle pages and wrote across both of them in big black marker

THHG2TG isn't just a god tier book it's an amazing series. As you get further and further into the series shit just gets funnier, and shit that was random before just makes more sense.

For example there's a part early on in the first book where they use the improbability drive, and create a whale, and a potted plant. They actually explain why it happened in a later book.

Definitely not what I was expecting
By Graham W. Jenkins on February 25, 2010
Format: Paperback
So I'm a big opponent of all things heteronormative, and so it was nice to finally find some literature that featured horses partaking in a different lifestyle (not that it's a choice, mind you, I just liked that they admitted some lady horses probably liked other lady horses). Except that this book was not at all about homosexual mares.

Rather, it was about these great busty lesbians who seemed to have very little in the way of steady work. Their days consist mostly of sleeping, some horseback riding (but only little walks of twenty minutes through the garden, a loop around the veranda, and then back again), and then stories by a campfire at night (a campfire at a country estate? With no butlers or Indians? What?!?). Inexplicably the ladies' steeds are present at these storytelling sessions as friends and partners, though lacking even the rudimentary body language reading capabilities of Clever Hans it escapes me how they ever thought they might seduce the ladies. Short answer: they don't.

The series of campfire stories are utterly predictable, ranging from the oppressive, homophobic patriarchy to the repressive, bigoted anti-matriarchal forces. Naturally I loved them, but come on, ladies! Alisa and Monica, I know you can do better. Maybe just Monica, actually. Alisa, this was a good effort, but it remains your only book and I worry you may have hit a protracted case of writer's block. Take a cue from Monica, who had some great sequels like "Lois Lenz, Lesbian Secretary," and "Bobby Blanchard, Lesbian Gym Teacher," and who could forget "Program Evaluation Procedure for Leisure Service Agencies?" A distinct lack of equine-related subplots, but then again, so was this, and I presume that it's a mistake you'll soon rectify in "Emily Earheardt, Lesbian Horse ...

Unique book, but not cloppable
By Princess Twilight Sparkle on September 27, 2014
Format: Paperback
I found this book in Princess Celestia's restricted archives in the Canterlot library. She disapproved, but if she didn't want me reading it then she shouldn't have put the book behind seven easily defeated magic cipher locks with deadly traps. It was practically out in the open!

Despite the enticing, forbidden fruit title of this book, it made me very disappoint. The distinctly non-lesbian (they're stallions, actually) ponies are depicted as dumb beasts and subservient to some sort of bipedal simian females. At no point do any lesbian ponies get together for a good, healthy [REDACTED BY EQUESTRIAN CIVIL AUTHORITY]. I don't think this book even belongs in our world based on the residual magic resonance that surrounds it. The mysterious "human" creatures are certainly the denizens of some strange and distant dimension.

Anyway, I loaned the book to Lyra Heartstrings and haven't seen her since. The overdue charge is on her head.

I'm an atheist, and heard so much whining from Christian groups about the movies that I got and read the books. What a clusterfuck. Supposedly all about atheism, but what are the characters doing? THEY ARE WARRING AGAINST HEAVEN.

How in the fuck can they go to war against a God that doesn't exist? It's self-contradictory.

Very disappoint.

He has some amazing books, but a lot are meh. I would suggest Thief of Time first, as it's pretty good as a standalone. Night Watch is another good one, but it helps to have read some of the other "city watch" books first -- Guards, Guards! was the first (meh), Men At Arms (meh), Feet of Clay (pretty decent), Jingo (ok), Fifth Elephant (ok).

Man, Neverwhere is sitting on my shelf and I can't get around to it cuz I'm reading 5 other books atm(includind 2 pratchett books). And Good Omens have been staring at me from the shelf of a local bookstore for a while but I always tell myself I still have a lot of unfinished books.

Terry Pratchett is amazing tho, definitely try it, If I can advise, go with discworld, keep the older novels in the series for later, his writing started to get exponentially better after the first 2 books. They are all good tho.

So I need to ask people who read Stephen King. I've only read a couple of his books and the dark tower series looks really cool to me. I've heard that it references his other books and somehow ties them together. So what books of his should I read before I get to the dark tower?

this
as standalones pratchett's books are solid, but nothing amazing. but read as a series, the characters develop and the whole discworld universe progresses, making it really engaging

the city watch.. "arc"? is my favourite by far, but I'd definitely recommend Thief of Time, as well as Thud (which is my favourite of Pratchett's books)

Anyway, Ice Station Zebra is probably my favourite book, with the George Smiley novels being a close second (I know, spyfiction/10, but I'm a filthy casual, not an English professor)

>>594545388
It's not like it's required reading.

I started the dark tower series on wizard and glass ( the most spaghetti western of them all) and then went up chronologically.

After I finished all the books i decided to try reading related books because I was interested in the characters.

Insomnia and Salem's lot are the ones that have the most notorious connections, I'd say (and they are REALLY good books by themselves), but the shinning, it, cujo, hearts in atlantis and a couple more I think get referenced. So just read what you feel like reading, mang.

The first book is actually the worst. The second one in MUCH better. In fact, he went back and revised the first book after he mapped out the whole series so it would fit better and not suck as much.

Classics. I re-read the robot and foundation series everey few years.

I love the whole series, but pic related is still my favorite.

It's hard to beat stomping around downtown Chicago on the back of a zombie t-rex.

His "Laundry" series is also awesome. Starts with "The Atrocity Archives" (totally awesome), then "The Jennifer Morgue" (letdown), then two more great ones.

His "Merchant Family" series was rather disappointing, and unfortunately it looks like he's going to continue it as his main one.

That explains a lot. I've never been able to understand how people even bothered to read that series. All I ever read was the first book, and it sucked so badly that I never even looked at the rest.

Not that I'm going to pick it up at this point; he's almost as bad as Dan Brown with his reuse of the same fucking plot time and time again.

Most of the way through this... It seems like it just treads the same stuff over and over
>inb4 Hofstadter
But it just started to get boring after a while because it seemed like it stopped covering new ground and was getting a bit..masturbatorial? I'll have to pick it back up and finish it one of these days. For now I've got some new Henry Miller stuff with my name on it.

yeah its just a friendly tip, the gödel escher and bach book was just a bit too much for me i admit.

might give it another try though

It's very good. I think it's the strongest in the series. It's a very different book than the first one though, expect a lot more philosophy than action/strategy. Ender's Game kind of serves as an introduction to this and the ones that follow.

Yeah GEB is pretty intense. I might check those MIT lectures and take another stab at it myself

Literally just read that one.
I like the series, its mostly fun, even is Dresden himself is a bit on a prick.

I felt like the dinosaur thing was a bit silly, and kinda took me out of it.
Dresden suddenly can raise the dead? Just because?
If old = strong + hard to raise, why wouldent necromancers have already used used the dinosaurs? Cavemen? Subcavemen? Hell, even old school mammals, bones ready and available at your local museum.
I get that humans are meant to be stronger in general, but it doesnt make sense that the necromancers havent thought about options.

I can forgive all that, though, because that final thread given to Marva was awesome.

anyone read it?

/b/ know of any books like The Count of Monte Cristo that are well written where the main character is fueled by revenge? Fucking love this shit. Was lucky enough to find a first edition in French at a church book sale
>>
>>594532379
Narrative at the start of each chapters is cringe worthy but the rest is sold.

>first edition in French at a church book sale
Holy shit, I have to start going to more churches.

Stephen Brust has two or three fantasy novels written with a (supposedly) similar prose style, but they are not along the same lines as far as plot. Still enjoyable. The Phoenix Guards is one, I think the second is called 500 Years After or something like that. Or maybe I have the order backwards.

I think Dresden's sudden ability to raise the dead was mostly because of the conditions the necromancers created for their ritual. I think he even said himself on any other night he couldn't have done it.
>>
>>594548567
Dude seriously go to church book sales. You find fucking gold, the only problem is they have no idea what they have and write in pencil how much they want on the inside of the books. I had to get my books restored since I wasn't going to erase .75$ out of each front cover myself.

This timeless piece.

Eh, I liked Dune Messiah more than the original Dune. Brian Herbert's ejaculations are shit though.
