I'm into survivalism at the moment. Does anyone have good survivalist themed books to share? I've read my obligatory Jack London, and Into The Wild. Also Brians Saga. I'd want something more grown up and perhaps a bit more techinical. It doesn't have to be prose.

Well, those are really different books.
Have you tried to read Homer? The Odyssey is really good, but a bit difficult. Luckily, there are prosaic versions of it, which makes things a bit easier.

Vergil's - The Aeneid is a also a good read, at least if you compare it to The Divine Comedy. It's one of those katabasis themed stories, and the national story of Rome.

If you like Treasure Island, perhaps you'd like other adventure stories? Why not Robinson Crusoe, The Count of Monte Cristo, or perhaps even something by Jules Verne? I recently read "The Prisoner of Zenda" by Anthony Hope. That was pretty neat.

Starting the Wheel of Time. Hopefully I can manage it, I heard the ending is great but it gets very slow.

It's a good book but the writer makes dumb ass characters with stupid logic nobody actually thinks.

Books you've reread the most? Steven Spielberg is adapting this book i'm so fucking excited but book adaptations are honestly always so abysmal and this is my favourite book of all time i'm so conflicted

Finished it not long ago and it's alright. I agree with the other guy on some issues like the l33t speak for example and the romance between perzival and art3mis, they were terrible or not well written. Otherwise I really enjoyed the book and it had me hooked, I'll probably reread it again at some point later

Ugh, I'm not normally one to outright dis books, but it was just so disappointing. Such a promising plot, such a promising world and it was used as an excuse for the author to tell us about his favourite films. Lengthy sections where they would literally just quote verbatim from shitty movies. The guy uses Monty Python quotes in place of humour. The ball-shrivelingly cringey 'l33tspeak'. The virtual world where anything is possible that's actually the tamest thing ever. The reclusive female superstar that for no reason falls for Pop-culture references. The unswerving bullshit that was the ending.

I've elected to begin writing. I'm heavily inspired by films like John Wick and books like the 007 novels. I've had a few ideas so far, but I'm unsure of where to begin or which one to begin with. I am also beginning to doubt myself, as I am merely entering another rat in the race, but with any luck I can use strategy and leverage to publish a book or two.

So far, the ideas are as follows:

A political satire based on a trench in World War One, with the left and right flanks representing the respective political wings and detailing how they begin to focus on defending from one another rather than the enemy.

A story similar to Lord of War in which a man sets up a gun factory in the Khyber Pass to arm rebels against terror groups so that the Cartels can secure new territory, it is written similarly to The Art of the Deal or the inner monologues of Nic Cage in the aforementioned film. It deals with themes of selling, strategy, and how to think in order to achieve a high reward from a high risk situation.

Thank you for your input, if you so choose to give some.

if you could maintain a non biased view on that political war it'd be dope
self doubt is a totally natural thing to feel just push through it.

Just know your first work probably won't be the best until you revise it a million fucking times. You're new at this, you'll have to review and rewrite more than others. Don't be afraid of rewriting like you're in high school, if you care about your work you won't be afraid to make it better. Ultimately don't let your feelings get in the way too drastically, a lot of people do this.

Anyways sounds like a cool idea, good luck friend. Don't give up and take your time. Enjoy yourself above everything else.

Do anyone know a good way for someone to learn how to write better?
I love writing, but according to my teacher I'm pretty bad at spelling (getting better tho )and I keep switching between past present and future words. No clue how to fix my second problem.

Honestly those sound like really basic errors. Not trying to be an asshole, but it seems like you're at the beginning of developing your craft, and those really are the kind of things you just need to practice on. As regards the tense thing, proofread your work often and make sure you know which tense a verb is meant to be in before you write it.

I need a link to a free copy of Fallout 4 that isn't torrenting. I've tried those ones from youtube that are like 18 gigs and come as an installer package but that shit doesn't work.
Can someone find me something that will actually work?

Why not torrents? I used to do only direct downloads too when I was younger and I got a shit ton of viruses that way. I completely forgot about those, searching youtube for the newest game in hopes one of the videos has download links.

Finally finished the second book, planning on doing 12 this year one for each month. It might not seem like much but going from 0 a year to 12 is a big step for me. First was the first harry potter book, something easy and short and I know would hold my attention, finished that up by the end of January. Just finished up "Ready Player One" I swear I read half the thing today alone while the first half was spread over most of February. . Now that I'm caught up I can start the 3rd one for the month of March, still haven't decided on what I'm gonna read exactly already have a few lined up but not certain on which to start.

It was awesome yet cringy in some parts. For example calling IOI employees "SuX0rs", a lot the lingo sounded like the story was based in 2006 instead of 2044. Still it drew me in and held my attention for hours, I really enjoyed it and the ending left me wanting more although Og did help wade with the third gate . Biggest issue I had with it was how Wade had this background in programming and hacking yet never was it explained that he studied it. He just said he spent his entire time inside OASIS

I had major problems with it as well. The entire thing was crazy juvenile and so very anticlimactic. It sill shakes my giblets that I read through that entire thing for the ending to be another excuse to parrot movie quotes. All the real-world stuff was engrossing and interesting, but then I had to wade through another chapter about pacman or some shit before we got back to cool dystopia.

That entire chapter was boring but i guess it was necessary to explain why he gets a coin that isn't useful until the ending, I mean you could obviously tell it was gonna help him in some way or the other later on. Honestly another big issue I had was how it took 5 years before the first key was found, you had massive groups helping each other out but two loner kids manage to get to it first. In the real world you put some impossible riddle/ problem out there and within a week a group of asians will have figured it out.
