    Falcarius could never pick one book. He mostly reads satire, bildungsroman, and Russian literature.

    A random bookshelf went like this: The Assistant - Robert Walser, A Confederacy of Dunces - John Kennedy Toole, Under the Volcano - Malcolm Lowry, Cancer Ward - Solzhenitsyn, Tom Jones - Henry Fielding, Blindness -Saramago,The Bell Jar - Sylvia Plath, The Appointment - Herta Müller, The Stranger- Camus, Darkness at Noon - Koestler, The Collector - John Fowles, The Good Soldier Svejk- Jaroslav Hasek...

    Intoxicating is the word I would use too. For some reason I also enjoyed the homoerotic undertones. It reminds me of the talented mr. Rippley.

    And why doth he speakers in the third person, garrot doth wonder but partake in the creative feat unsuspecting of any motive upon a foundation of hubris, but knowing too that there is a more than likely chance he might be wrong-sizzles.


    P.s. I too dabble in the chapter in five different books per day art...rather than stick to a main I have a lot of side pieces. @chickpea

    Just found this book I remember reading at some point and particularly enjoying. The Long Walk by Stephen King. I generally like how he writes, because he seems to instead of just answering questions he tends to ask them.

    One of my favourite works of literature that I can read again and again is "The Leopard" (Italian: Il Gattopardo), by Guiseppe Tomasi de Lampedusa.

    Guiseppe was an Italian diplomat who wrote only one book in his lifetime, and it is a masterpiece.

    And it was made into a movie by Luchino Visconte, click on https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qb0I...0&spfreload=10

    In addition to Catch-22, by Joseph Heller, there is the Glass Bead Game, by Herman Hesse.

    I read each of them at vastly different times in my life, one during a period of great idealism, and one during a period of great disillusionment. It's hard for me to pick which one was more meaningful to me. The most interesting part was Joseph Knecht's relationship with Plinio Designori; it had very strong reverberations with where I was at the particular time and place where I read it.

    Supposedly the main part is about thinking. Then the shamanistic section is about sensing, the part about the desert Christian hermits is about feeling, and the Indian section is about intuition.
    [Trump's] rhetoric is not an abuse of power. In the same way that it's also not against the law to do a backflip off of the roof of your house onto your concrete driveway. It's just mind-numbingly stupid and, to say the least, counterproductive. - Bush did 9-11


    This is not going to go the way you think....
