I'm pretty new to reading books occasionally, could you guys recommend me some pessimistic/depressing novels? Or maybe just a harsh sci-fi novel; I did try to find novels in sites like "goodreads", but once I read what they are about they sound boring or generic. So sites hardly help. After searching for 30 minutes I was thinking of reading the novel called "Stranger in a Strange Land " but from what I read they examine love and morality, things I don't believe in. I saw the recommended literature this board gives but I've seen the films of most of the books there so I know what happens. I really hate knowing what is going to happen. I'm really picky so I need recommendations from experienced people.

sup I'm currently working with Spanish literature and there's a lot of references to mythology. I haven't read a lot from it and I only know the basic, so I was wondering if anyone could tell me where to start. There are many authors and the genealogy of the gods seems to be quite messy, so I could use a recommendation. thanks.

Hey /lit/, I need to read Beowulf for class. My roomates make a lot of noise, so I need something to listen to while I read to block them out. Anything good?

Ok /lit/, So, tell me, if a man went up to you, and said "Can you tell me where your wife/children/friend is, i plan to murder them" would you lie or tell the truth?
Hello /lit/.I've been... 8 posts and 1 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Hello /lit/. I've been coming here on and off for years now, and was a /b/tard for about six years or so. I reckon ultimately that's why I'm approaching you in such a manner - better to ask and learn how a given society rubs blue mud onto it's belly and such. With THAT stated, I have an action-adventure, urban fantasy novella series independently published and, hopefully, given a proper international release through a traditional publisher as well. Now the first book in the series is a free offering (digitally speakin'), and I'd love to know what's the view here of just sharing that link here. This isn't meant to be Shakespeare - it's meant to be violent, entertaining fiction. The first novella in the series is a bit omre noirish than the rest, but I still have yet to hear anything but love about it. I'm currently building up hype for an event to celebrate the publication of the fourth novella in the series, and am almost done with the fifth. The whole shebang is professionally edited, and the crew I've assembled for it is extremely enthusiastic about the material. SO. With all that stated, is it acceptable here to just post links to the download, that kinda thing? Do lemme know.
Who do you think are the three... 0 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Who do you think are the three most important, influential, and famous writers/authors of fiction/fantasy/etc of all time are, without repeating multiply people in both roughly the same time period and location/culture? I asked this question to many people, and the three who seemed to be "winning" were Homer, Shakespeare, and Mark Twain. I think one could make an argument for Lovecraft, however.

Hey all, Is this book worth reading? I've heard mixed reviews and I'm not entirely sure what it's about. But from what I've seen its tempting. Has anyone else read it?
