I would really appreciate if you put a short resume along with the posts, im looking foward to ordering a few books from the thread. I was stuck to fantasy about 2 years ago, I tried many authors, I can say that i got closest to Terry. He got my attention with Small Gods and since then i have read about 7 books of his.

I liked Steppenwolf more but thats probably mostly because this Book was basically a reflection of my own personality
>>
>>603938684
Nice man, you should add Knut Hamsun there too :) Really great - not so famous because he supported Nazi-Germany (out of nationalism though, not racism)
>>
>>603938870
Thank you.
>>
>>603937357
Sorry.
Uhh, magical world, neighbours a nonmagical world. Story of a girl who's dad is an anti-necromancer, keeps dead shit dead. Story of her travels trying to rescue him, final boss fight to save the world, standard fantasy.
Its easy fantasy, amazing cinematic, fast paced fight scenes and it basically never stops.

I'd summarise it as epic fantasy for teenagers. I blitz through the series of 3 in about a week when I go on holiday, its aimed at 16 year olds so its easy for me to read. Awesome though.

Knut Hamsun is arguably much bigger than Heidegger, seeing your taste, I do not see why you refuse to look into Hamsun.

Also I do not understand why Shakespeare is on your list - his characters are tin soldiers.

Basically, there's a girl whose dad is an abhorsen, a dude who keeps monsters and stuff dead, and he gets knocked off so she becomes the abhorsen, then there's this 2-centuries-old problem where the entire royal family of the "old world" has been dead, and the girl (sabriel) has to save the last remaining member. The old world is a world of monsters, magic, necromancy, and all that good stuff, meanwhile there's the new world, separated from the old world by a badass wall, which has newer technology and stuff. It's a great idea and an amazing series, but the idea could be expanded upon.

The Inheritance Cycle by Christopher Paolini would have to be my all time favourites.

Also just started reading Raymond E. Feist's novels and they aren't too bad and currently reading The Saxon Stories by Bernard Cornwell.

Just the first few pages of 'consider fleabas', changed my whole view of what a novel could do.

The world is a sadder, darker place without him.

Haha, moving to the capital was the main trigger for me too.

I met Raymond e feist, he was a cool guy...just read the first three of his book's though...the rest are awful imo.
>>
>>603945587
Yeah a lot of people have said his stuff has gone down hill, I haven't read all of them yet but what I have read didn't really compare to the first 3, they are the best.
>>
>>603944613
I'll note him down.

>before bed
I always fall asleep mid way into a chapter if I do that.

Night time is the only time I feel comfortable to read when I think about. I think it has to do with the whether (cooler, most nights) and the silence that comes with it.

The old man and the sea by Hemingwa and Kafka's trial.

Summer of the Monkeys.

But I think that's attributed with me reading that in the last year of my life before things went to shit.

Mort in the Discworld series. Great story plus it's signed. I expect he wrote "boo!" in every Mort book but it's still a nice little touch he added.

>>603948083

OK OK I'll put in another of my two cents with an obvious choice.

bunch of schoolboys on a plane, crash on an island. the end up forming a pack mentality and live out a few weeks on the island. its about what goes on, how the boys cope with being alone, how they break off into groups, what goes on etc.

also dont watch the film adaptation, i studied it in school and the books ok, but the film is a pile of wank.

My favourite post-apocalyptic book. While reading, it almost felt like the events really happened and I totally missed it.
>>
I don't see The Sound and the Fury listed here you peasants
>>
>>603951914
Good book, awful film...wish I'd never seen it.
>>
Well, you know. That happens with 98% of the movies based on books. For example: The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. That movie was a bloody 2 hour long cringe.

Any thread that includes gabriela Garcia Marquez, Golding, Hemingway, Camus, Heller, Nabacov and Lem; is certainly not what you describe.

The sound and the thunder...it's a notoriously difficult book to read and has many interesting idea's in it...but it's just one of the best American novels(if it's your cup of cha', and certainly not a god tier book when placed in the pantheon of great literature.

You got it. If I remember correctly, he's the symbolic messiah type figure who talks to a decapitated pig head and gets beaten to death by the other boys.
