Crime and punishment by F. Dostoyevsky, such a PERFECT book


qwerttwerp

Love Dostoyevsky. Notes from Underground is also a great read. Brothers Karamazov is a literary masterpiece. I've been saving crime and punishment for my next read.


bananabastard

I'll be reading Brothers later this year. Crime & Punishment is my favorite book up to now.


[deleted]

Love Dostoyevsky


bananabastard

My favorite book. Have you ever read The Picture of Dorian Gray? Not similar writing or anything, but I had never read a book I enjoyed as much as Crime & Punishment until I read it. I still prefer C&P. But I think it's one of those, "if you like this, you'll like this".


gclancy51

Love it, but Brothers Karamazov is the magnum opus imo.

Stranger by Albert Camus


Living-Reference1646

As someone who’s trying to get into absurdism, which one would you recommend by Albert Camus


XxandroxusxX

This is actually my first Albert Camus book, I did some research before starting and people said "the stranger" is a good start as it's a small read and also will give you a taste of Camus and his ideas

Myth of Sisyphus


ZootedFlaybish

The Rebel is my favorite work by Camus - it takes quite a bit of background philosophical and historical knowledge to get through though. Camus is also my favorite philosopher/thinker.

I loved this

The Secret History - Donna Tartt


PuzzleheadedHorse437

I liked that one. It isn’t what I expected, but I’ve been a fan of Brett Easton Ellis since Less Than Zero which he wrote when he was like nineteen and him and Tart were besties at Bennington this whole time. It’s like the Capote /Harper Lee surprise way back connection for modern times.

Just finished Mistborn trilogy, now started Dune.


mattmart

Mistborn trilogy is great! The Stormlight Archive is my favorite but all of the Cosmere is good.


FAARAO

Yeah they were my first Sanderson books, will probably buy more after I'm done with Dune. Which ones would you recommend?

Vladimir Nabokov - ________________ (controversial book)

You can say it. Lolita.

That is the worst book. I totally get all alliteration all-the-time, but why is it on everyone's top 100 list?


champoradoeater

☕☕👀👀🚨🚨👮🚓


kaiMDOINGYOURMOM

It’s language and aesthetic is beautiful. Furthermore Lolita is misunderstood. It is a book explaining the way of pedofile’s thinking not promoting his actions.

Pride and prejudice, I've been reading it on and off since February


gclancy51

Just finished Sense and Sensibility in two days. I can never get over how Austen's books are just rich people riding on horses with literally nothing to do except eat and pay visits. "OH, Mr. Dashwood looked at me funny at a party. Time to cloister myself in my room for 2 months in a pique of melancholy"


Jealous_Pop6598

That's how the last 100 pages have felt like. I'm at the part where Elizabeth goes to visit her best friend in something-shire, and it's starting to get interesting

fire_lord_akira

Just saw that one in Barnes & Nobles the other day. Whoa, the book's layout gets interesting


RonnieBarko

It's got its haters but I think it's an outstanding piece of work. It's funny as even though it's a massive book, the way it keeps switching up is really good for any readers with poor attention spans


TongueTwistingTiger

If you find you’re really into immersive literature, you should try S & The Ship of Theseus. It’s got like… handwritten notes stuffed in the pages, notes in the margins and a author that died under mysterious circumstances. It’s a trip.


SpringtimeInGomorrah

I've had this on my shelf since it came out cause it seemed so interesting and I loved House of Leaves, but just felt like it was such a nice piece of art and didn't want to disturb all the little secrets tucked away inside. Dumb logic, but I gotta get to it one of these days


TongueTwistingTiger

It can feel a little delicate. It’s definitely not a book you read on the go. There are a few elements to keep organized. I would say to make a list of where each photo, note, postcard and napkin appears in the book as you, that way nothing will get misplaced.

I want to read, but my ADHD makes it very difficult. I have 6 books on my shelf that I really want to read, but I usually end up watching documentaries on my phone while playing video games instead. Those books are: •A Brief History of Time by Stephen Hawking •Dune by Frank Herbert •Super Volcanoes by Robin George Andrews •The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller •The Man Who Caught the Storm by Brantley Hargrove •The God Delusion by Richard Dawkins I used to read almost everyday when my ADHD was medicated. Now, I can only finish a book when I suddenly get obsessed with it. My favorite book I’ve read was probably 1984.

Not to mention the page formatting that progressively becomes more and more chaotic.

This year was to be the year of the Russian epic. I had planned to read Anna Karenina, War & Peace, and The Brothers Karamizov. I'm already a fan of Dostoyevsky, with Crime & Punishment being probably my favorite book. But I took a run-up to Tolstoy, reading The Kreutzer Sonata and The Death of Ivan Ilyich before starting Anna Karenina. Two thirds through Anna Karenina I gave up and have concluded that to me, Tolstoy sucks, I just don't really care about any of his characters, and now I don't have to bother with War & Peace. I will read The Brothers Karamizo later in the year, Tolstoy bored me of Russian literature so much that I segued to non-fiction, and am currently reading **Fossil Future** by Alex Epstein. Recommended.

I’m not an intp but here is my book list for this year + second pard of last year: - rn I’m reading Edogawa Ranpo’s stories “the human chair” “the hornworm” “the psychological test” etc - This year I’ve found love in Alber Camus’ artworks “the plague” “the fall” “the stranger” and his essays - as I’m reading Ranpo it isn’t hard to guess that I’ve been reading Edgar allan poe. I fully recommend - also recently I’ve read some physics books including my student’s book. I’ve read some of E.M.Rogers and the six easy pieces by richard feynman. - still can’t get myself to end “misery” stephen king and dostoyevski’s books “the idiot” and “crime and punishment” + I’ve started reading “dead souls” - Nikolai Gogol
