he's storytelling is bullshit. Imagine making atmosphere, step by step just to end eveyrthing with some random bullshit like; 'and then I realise it was her' xd? Also i remember that he used to describe ALMOST every useless thing in as many words as possible, describing warderobe for 1 page, just to never come back to this but yeah, 'rich language'

Lovecraft was the first writter for almost my whole life, who got me to enjoy it, and im looking forward for more of his old stories, which i'll read after my exams

H.P Lovecraft was also the one who transformed writing into a indispensable part of my life. I became interested in writing because of him as well. You won't be disappointed. I hope you have success in your exams, my friend.
2023-01-26 00:56
for me the main problem with Edgar Allan Poe is that he is making really good atmosphere and I can literally dive into immersion, but i feel such a disappointment with ALMOST every ending of his stories. Its like you get one of the best story teller and let him write the 90% of the book, but give a random kid who writes first time, the 10% of ending.

Definitely personal preference. The guy throws in one plot twist after another combined with many unsatisfying cliffhangers, boring characters and weird pseudo-history facts, making his books as a whole a thrilling but rather empty read. Da Vinci Code is the only one of his books I felt had some good stuff, all the others were pretty mediocre.

So, what's great about Borges is that he writes incredibly short stories, most of them are only around 10 pages or less but it feels like they are much longer. In his own words; he pretends that his stories already exist and that he is writing the best possible summary of the story. Borges skips descriptions and character development most of the time, his stories are usually about great philosophical ideas and principles. I would say that his stories are best suited for people that can ''think outside the box'' if you know what I mean.

I have to say, this left me extremely interested, especially in the short stories. i always like to see short stories before going to sleep, but I'm limited to Lovecraft, Poe and Conan Doyle. I really enjoy those subjects as well, I'm sure there are very valuable things to learn if you dig deep in what you are reading. Thanks for giving your opinion, my friend. May you give me another one? wich book from him I should start with?

So interestingly (at least for me) Borges did not write novels, he only wrote short fiction like poems and short stories. Whatever collection of his stories you can find will surely be good. I can't really recommend one version in particular because I have read the swedish versions/collections and I dont know if they exist in other languages.

I can relate to him, I do write on a daily basis, and writing short stories are much more fun (for me at least). Writing a novel seem like work, writing a tale or a short storie seem like leisure time. Being from South America as well, I can certainly find lots of his works with no difficulty.

These days I dont write at all sadly. I lost focus and inspiration a few years ago. Luckily I'm confident that I will find my way back to it eventually. Dream is to be able to write like Borges since he is my favourite. Another dream would be to write something that would make even a Borges expert think that it was one of his stories.

In essence it’s one of (if not the) modern road books and also one of the cornerstone works of the “Beat” generation of the late 50’ and 60’. It has also shaped the public image of drifter-like people to this day. It’s a quintessential read in my opinion, but be careful as it might lead to an early midlife crisis lol

I am a big fan of Moravia’s prose. The book is written in the first person and the narrator describes the events with a sort of cold distance even though they are affecting him deeply. It becomes clear by the end that he is becoming somewhat delusional despite the fact that he is able to justify all of his feelings and actions logically.

Yeah I do, I got a couple favorites. Speaking of meditation, I had a friend in hs who meditated before practice frequently and I never quite understood why he was doing it. But whenever I tried meditating it was like watching paint dry. Alone with my thoughts in pitch-black nothingness. I never got to have a meaningful conversation with them about it because I was under the same impression as your friend until very recently.

I want to read Kafka on the shore so much, but people buy it too fast when the library get a copy of it. (I try to by as many books as possible from local libraries, so that they still survive). Definetly take a look into South of the border, west of the sun and Norwegian Wood (This one is a bit longer, if its of your preference. The first one is pretty short) I didnt finished Metamorphosis, read about half of it, wasnt liking it too much, but ill give another try as soon as possible. Poor Folk is the first book by Doestoevsky if im not mistaken, i recommend it a lot. Hope you can find some time after your exams, and good luck with them.

I would end up writing what you felt like was a book, if I meant to answer earnestly about the ways each book singularly impresses me, which I would have to do since the only thing they have in common is "epic/narrative poetry" (4/5), or "religious stories" (5/5), when those don't exactly hit on its personally-appreciable aspect. So, I'll just write something nice about one book, and very nearly the lowest ranked, the FOURTH book, and see if you don't get tired 😭 So, to say what I like about Ovid's book.... the Metamorphoses is really very unique among all books I've read. Aside from it being just about the last, plus most comprehensive, "primary" source for our knowledge about the ancient Greek cultures, their gods, and their histories; it is also an absolute masterpiece of storytelling, accumulating dozens and dozens of the ancient stories that comprised the tapestry of the Hellenic Greek culture (although with name changes as it was later adopted by the Romans, and thus Ovid), and managing to fashion them in a fairly unified narrative format (remember, they were all separate stories, from the stories of the founding of Thebes, to the abduction of Persephone, to the exploits of Hercules) that always features some kind of transformation (thus, Metamorphoses) but also cleverly morphs the ending of the last myth into the introduction of the next myth by even the tiniest shared feature or detail. It often happens so subtly it felt like a dream, where you didn't even realize that the scenery was changing until you realized you were in an entirely new location. The book has taught me the origins of many words I knew, because the stories were themselves responsible for the very invention of those words! Lycanthropy, for the story of Zeus transforming Lycaon into a wolf (Lycaon + anthropos [Greek for Man]); Arachnid for the story of Athena transforming Arachne into a spider as the wager that she was the best weaver in all of the lands, better even than the gods (she was not 😂); Hermaphrodite for the story of Hermes and Aphrodite having a child, Hermaphroditos, so beautiful that the naiad Salmacis tried to rape him, and failing that, wanting to be with him so desperately, she even prayed to be united to him forever, and so one of the gods answering that prayer transformed the two of them into one, a boy-girl made from the son of the gods and a kinky female spirit 😳 I could go on but honestly, it's way more than enough. These books are not for everyone, but to whoever can, they're extremely rich and are basically foundational literature whose only barrier for appreciation is perhaps knowledge, willingness, or understanding; but certainly not technical ability, quality, or creative invention. I'm sorry for abusing you if you read all of this.

Art of war is pretty good, such a shame that the book nowadays is sold with the idea of it being a "business" book. People with very low critical thinking read the book and are left disappointed, saying "the book is only helpful if you are in the army"

I dont really now, I have not yet found a book that would "move" me... Its all like, cool and all, you made that up. I like real sotries or something that at least comes close to it. All quiet on western front was good, also I liked "Byl jsem tobruckou krysou" - I was a rat from Tobruk (I got it signed from the general himself :p). 17 yo boy escapes WW2 czechoslovakia in winter, crosses the alps, joins czech troops on the middle easts, drives nazis out, gets deployed in europe, drives nazis out, gets slapped by commies, later becomes a general, gets the highest czech order - order of the white lion

Interesting, have never heard of people who prefer real stories. Maybe you would like "No longer Human" by Osamu Dazai. Its fiction alongside real things. Its the last book Osamu dazai has published, he commited suicide shortly after.

Factfulness is easily my favourite book ever. It is an eye opener, and probably a book that everyone should read every 5 years or so, because it makes you realize how your instincs are preventing you from understanding world around you better.
