This was my first Murakami and I feel ambivalent. I found the constant referencing and the discourses that followed to be very obtrusive and stilted. I couldn't invest in Kafka as a character and was constantly annoyed by the whole alter ego thing. Also the constant extrenuous detail; I don't think it necessary to describe everything a character is wearing every time they make an appearance. At the same time though I enjoyed the Nakata side. He had a very pure, likeable quality that worked for me, I especially enjoyed his side once he was paired with Hoshino. Overall I got the feeling that Murakami is just not for me. Are any of his other works much different?

Any good books that deal with alien invasion and technology race? I've already read the Long War and Ender's Game. Shitty books also accepted.

Hello guys, sorry to bother you with this, but im not very bright when it comes to computer stuff. I recently downloaded a bunch of Plutarch ebooks off that famous website, i put them in calibre and converted them to mobi, everything good so far, i click on them on the kindle but when i do a message pops up saying they cant be opened, if you downloaded them off amazon, please download again, or something like that. They open when i click View on calibre, so im not sure whats wrong. Maybe theyre protected? If so, how can i tell? Can i remove it on calibre? How? I would appreciate the help. Thanks.

1/2 The book "Something Happened" by Joseph Heller is completely written from the point of view of the narrator. Almost nothing happens except for the narrator talking about his memories. One of the things he mentions is that he regrets being young and not taking advantage of all of his opportunities to fug women. In middle age he isn't as enthusiastic about that stuff. Now that this topic is 100 % /lit/ related, how do I get a gf if I'm 22, a student going in to his final year (living at home) and have zero friends, acquaintances, or social life. I live in the UK. My only hobbies are lifting, reading, 4chan browsing, and I try to get in to programming. wtf do? I've fucked about 10 prostitutes so I'm not in awe of vaginas. I genuinely have no clue what I could viably do to get one or even what I'd do afterwards. This could be my last free summer before going in the real world and I'm worried that I will look back on it and feel regret. It doesn't help that some of my favourite books feel perfectly designed to increase this feeling of regret (Rules of Attraction by BEE, Mysteries of Pittsburgh by Chabon)

(or at least one that i understand. it sounds like a lie or a joke but i hear broadcasts from aleins telling me the truth, i see through your lies, your faulty and selfish and egotistical motives., i have them on my side and they tell me everything. i used to tell people and ended up in a behairoal health home for a little under two years and got out about 3 months ago, a epiphanies about death and i went inside and after t almost everyday for years i live in this ralm, discombulated from the core, i am dissassembles, i am jesus christ i am everything, the paint in the walls cant scratch me, haha! i am triumphiant, or should i say trumpet, if they weren't the nyms i remember than the pain ought to be clever! meh heh heh

I want to make a fanfiction. Is there a better site to go to for that than fucking fanfiction.net? Pic unrelated, I am not interested in shipping.

Secular histories of Jesus and Muhammad please. Looking on Amazon it is very hard to tell actual historians from religious apologists. It is also hard to tell which are good books and which are trash, because people are rating them based on their own positions and not the content. Thanks for your help

Why are you so selfish?

>>>/r9k/13034517 The above post is funnier than every joke in every DFW, Pynchon, Joyce plus (all patrician authors ever). I'm not going to go full edgy and say that the r9k post is better, because it's not, obviously. But can we all man up and admit that literature's contribution to humour is completely negligible at best? Novels are shit for humour.

Anybody ever got the feeling of being really smart but also really really stupid? I feel like a guy who never learned to drive doing unintentional donuts in a porsche.
