Literature 📚

  • The literature thread📚

  • Finished Ishiguro‘s A Pale View Of The Hills today. Left me wondering what the point is, it made me feel deeply unsatisfied.

    My goal is to finish Infinite Jest before year‘s end.

    Never heard of him to be honest. He only has a couple of books translated in my language Dutch. Do you think it is worth checking his work out tho?

    Never Let Me Go and The Remains Of The Day are absolute classics to me personally. They just s***ed me in right from the first chapter.

    Read them in English !

  • If you want to get into Russian Literature, it can be difficult to know where to start. Personally i'd recommend reading Tsjechow's short stories first. If you like that you could go and read The Death of Ivan Ilyichh by Tolstoy. That book is personally my favourite.

  • Borges GOAT

  • The Alchemist

    Lots of people get short attention spans because they're used to the instant gratification of the internet or television.

    Try to spend a few hours every day with no internet or technology to get things done. You'll get used to it and be able to appreciate stuff like reading more.

    Reading takes more work but the gratification provided is bigger than just using a forum online.

    i know, the gratification thing 100%, the thing is, im not internet needy, maybe this seems hypocritical cause after all im on a forum, but I don't really use the internet for tabloids and for s*** like that, i might get stuck beatmaking for 2-3 days, and i might just be stuck on that and not use internet like that but I get you,

    ig, snapchat and all that blocks your attention, thirsting for that notification

  • I'm pulling up to Noname's book club meeting on Saturday to discuss the readings for the month of October. Honestly, leisurely readings are lit.

    ha in English we spell his name Chekhov. I was like 'damn this man about to put me on' but just ol Anton

  • hey book fam

  • Figured I’d ask here as it’s as good of a place as any: does anyone know of any books like William Gibson’s blue ant trilogy? Like, technothrillers about the death of futurism in contemporary times?
