What books should everybody read?
    #1146674 - 12/16/02 05:30 PM (21 years, 4 months ago)

I feel lame not reading anything - I finished my last book over a month ago and feel useless without latching onto a good book every night.... what should be worldwide required reading? What should I check out? Awesome books anybody?

I have a hard time finding material that I can get absorbed in enough to finish it. Good fiction does help me along it seems.  I don't know what to recommend for you.  I personally enjoy Kurt Vonnegut's stuff. Jerzy Kosinsky was a good writer of fiction.  Interesting stories with a surreal bent.  There's just so many great writers.  I like stuff from all ages and places.  Right now I'm not reading anything again. :crazy:  I recommend Stephen Crane's short stories for casual reading.  They are usually 1-20 pages long (small gems of vivid realism written with witty humor in my opinion).  Hemingway and Steinbeck are great. I like Crane better.

Yes thanks - I've read several books in my day, Mr Mushrooms :smile:

and Frogsheath,

I recall reading Vonnegut's "Welcome to the Monkey House" a while back. I really enjoyed most of them, so maybe our tastes are a bit similar - I'll look into Kosinsky and Crane, and am of course familiar with Hemingway and Steinbeck. Thx for the tips man.

I'm also looking for non-fiction studies on like the origin of man, or just general philosophy and whacked-out ideas and things like that as well as fiction.

Vonnegut is good. I read Timequake, Slaughterhouse Five, and something else I believe; and liked them all. Now I'm enjoying Steinbeck immensely, but I'll be switching gears soon. The days, I find of late, are bitterly terse. And unseasonably warm, incidentally.

'The Seven Mysteries of Life' by Guy Murchie
Read some of the reviews on Amazon at this link 


--------------------
To call humans 'rational beings' does injustice to the term, 'rational.'  Humans are capable of rational thought, but it is not their essence.  Humans are animals, beasts with complex brains.  Humans, more often than not, utilize their cerebrum to rationalize what their primal instincts, their preconceived notions, and their emotional desires have presented as goals - humans are rationalizing beings.

Vonnegut is indeed one of my favorite authors, and I have read a lot of his stuff, lesse...Breakfast of Champions, Cat's Cradle, Slaughterhouse Five, Welcome to the Monkey House, The Sirens of Titan, God Bless You Dr. Kevorkian, Mother Night, God Bless You Mr. Rosewater, Player Piano, Timequake, Hocus Pocus, Palm Sunday(not your typical KVjr work), Wampeters, Foma & Granfalloons(again, not a typical work).

I think there are a few out there that I have not read. I will get to them eventually. All are good in their own ways, even the last two I listed, though I think you have to be a Vonnegut fan to appreciate them. I would highly recomend The Sirens of Titan or Mother Night to anybody starting out with Vonnegut. It is hard to pick an "introductory" novel to Vonnegut, not that you need one because you have read his stuff. I really would like to re-read some of those titles, but sadly my collection of Vonnegut books has been scatered to the wind. I've stopped loaning out my books.  :mad: I did however pick up an older copy of Welcome to the Monkey House this summer from the first class lounge of Union Station, Chicago, this past summer on a layover. It was like finding an old friend.  :smile:

Everyone should read 'Dream Cargo', by J.G Ballard. It's a short story from his book 'War Fever'. It's the best short story I've ever read relating to drugs, or any other relation for that matter.

If you like drugs like a majority in the shroomery then Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas by Hunter S. Thompson is for you. If you only saw the movie and didn't understand the whole story then book will clarify it.
Frank Zappa's Book - Fun read if you're and if you're not a Zappa fan. pretty easy.
I heard Catch Me If You Can (like the movie out now) is a lot better than the movie.

This book FIRE by Sebastian Junger (ung-er) its a really good book. He's a journalist who tells different stories in his book of where he went in his life. He talks bout forest fire fighters, and island's whale hunting, then goes to the middle east and Greece and Kosovo and writes a lot of what happened. He tells a good descriptive story along with a lot of history tied in with it. Junger is the author for A Perfect Storm but this book is really good. I like it.

I recommend anything by Hubert Selby Jr. -  especially Requiem for a Dream, Song of The Silent Snow or The Willow Tree.
Requiem is a personal fave of mine, and I still haven't seen the movie adaptation of it yet :frown:

I highly recommend A Brave New World by Aldous Huxley. Its one of their books where you can't put it down you just want to keep reading and reading until your through with it. Then once your through with it, your wanting more. I believe Aldous Huxley came out with a sequel to this book called Island, which I also heard was good.

Aww come on! Give it up for Salinger. Please. I mean I see a little bit of Holden in a lot of what he writes, but can you blame him? There's a little bit of Holden in us all!

So I recomment "Catcher in the Rye" and "Nine Stories".

I also think everyone should read Steinbeck, specifically "Cannery Row" because it really has no point other than to say, "Hey this is life here...." A vignette, nuh? But of "Of Mice and Men" is also great.

If you like fantasy you have to check out Tolkein obvioulsy. But for someone who I think would give Tolkein a run for his money if he wrote in our generation would be a man named Robert Jordan. I don't know if he wrote anything other than the Wheel of Time serious, but man those books are good! Haha...More good fantasy is Philip Pullman and his "Dark Materials" its a trilogy that was just finished..the first book is "The Golden Compass" and its just a good, fun read..nothing too serious.

there's this book by a new author not a whole lot of people know about

the book is call Ready, OK!

i thought it was good, very humourous, a few laughes on every page actually.
also i found it very engrossing, to the point i'd rea dit every spare moment i had til i was done, an effect most books dont have on me.

actually i forgot the aithor's name and the rather ambiguous title means i cant find it, not even on amazon =\ sorry i guess this is useless but if you can figure out a way to get ahold of it i'm sure you'll enjoy.

the author's straight edge not liking drugs thing in it gets a bit annoying, but mercifully, he doesn't write ignorant things, nor does he write anything about drugs that aren't true for a lot of highschool kids, negetive as they maybe be.

The Alchemist


--------------------
"Apparently there is a great discovery or insight which our culture is deliberately designed to supress, distort and ignore. That is that Nature is some kind of minded entity. That Nature is not simply the random flight of atoms through electromagnetic fields. Nature is not the empty, despiritualized lumpen matter that we inherit from modern physics. But it is instead a kind of intelligence, a kind of mind."

-Terence McKenna
