Hello FJ Book Community,

Forst time posting on here.

I am looking for a book. Upon looking online, I have seen ridiculous prices for it that I simply cannot afford.

So I am asking if anybody knows if it is possible to torrent or download a book online...

I would greatly appreciate the help.

Thanks.

This is something I recently wanted to do. And I'm going to try write articles that sound like they could be real but are very tragic.
Headlines: MAN SUFFERING FROM AUTISM FREED FROM CHARGES OF MURDER
----------------------------------------------------------------
It was a normal day for Sarah Massey and her son Jonathan. Jonathan had been staying at Sarah's house for the week. They were going to watch a movie together as they always do and they had hired frozen, a light hearted Disney movie, to watch this weekend. But then something unexpected happened. Jonathan came home with a shocked expression on his face and kept repeating to himself "I've brokened her" under his breath. Sarah tried to calm him down.
"I didn't know what to expect judging by his behaviour. I've never seen him act like this and we've always had a very close relationship."
She asked "who?" and he kept on saying the same same thing and pointing out to the street. She went out and saw a woman lying on the pavement and called 911. It was already too late. The woman was dead.
"Jonathan will probably never be the same again. All he does now is sit in his room and occasionally bawl his eyes out. My theory is that they ran into eachother, he dropped the snacks and she started to pick it up. Jonny panicked and thought she was stealing or trying to hurt him or something and ended up strangling her in self defence and accidentally killed her. He's a good boy - can we end this interview?" Sarah said all the while almost breaking up.

This is a tragic story indeed and there's not much to say about it, but that we need to be less judgemental of those with mental problems. Jonathan currently faces no charges because he was deemed not to be able to actually be responsible for his own actions.

Maybe try studying how newspaper articles are written. No article would begin "It was a normal day". This sounds more like a narrative than a report. Also, most articles would not include a verbatim interview; most of the time they include a small quote and a description of the conversation. For a headline article, you should keep in mind that most are very long. If the actual news is not a long enough story, they supplement it with related incidents and witness reports. Most would say something about the victim.

Keep trying!

Stick to the poetry, prose isn't for you. More specifically, this reads like some alternate universe where creepypasta has been replaced by sadpasta. It's not great, and certainly not written like any type of article.

But to entertain your trolling, how about this
A (somewhat boring) poem I made yesterday

For by your command, my Lord
I shall live well
Not by the gun, not by the sword
I shall stray far from hell
Creation and cremation
It is a mere continuum
Of existence
May I never cease, but always be, never take for granted
May I hear the bees, enjoy the fruit from the tree I planted
Until the day I die
And in heaven, with allah
I promise I will not cry

One of my friends is Muslim, it was his birthday and eid at the same time so I made that one

See, when you're giving criticism you're supposed to be accurate and knowledgable. In this situation, you're neither. You should never attempt criticising poetry again because you don't grasp it at all.

Poetry doesn't need to conform to what you think and nobody said anything about the type of poetry I make being unpopular. I've only seen evidence to the contrary too. I'm really curious about what you're thinking of when I mention this.

Well to be honest I don't give a shit about what people write in general. I think about this in other art forms. People say this and that isn't art, but to me, art is something that takes a modicum of skill to do and still tugs at your heartstrings one way or the other.

My personal favourite kind of art is art that makes you feel uncomfortable. Uncanny stuff mostly. Videos, poetry, music and movies mostly.

Of that poor little goat
When his father heard, he then did whip some.

Ah, see an inferior wordsmith like myself wouldn't catch that, but someone who's studied psychology might know that that's not what projection is. Projection is when you 'project' your opinions on another as a form of catharsis. For example, a villain might criticise a hero's sense of morality because he is terrified that he has strayed to evil.

I appreciate that you were the one to break out the nasty words, because i've been chomping at the bit for some time. The problem is not mine, because I'm very much free to go and read poetry with value and beauty. I'm not limiting myself to old poetry here either, there's plenty written today that I find compelling and heartachingly beautiful. The problem is that a Czechoslovakian youth living and operating out of his stepdad's coal shed does not find in the modern market a receptive audience for his poorly written, badly metered, limping sorry lame-ass excuse for a monologue on the benefits of fucking goats. Therefore, it is very much his problem, because when the winter comes, he will eat coal to survive and congratulate himself on his artistic integrity. There will always be unpopular art, and that is because it is shit. Not misunderstood, not ahead of its time. It is shit. Your poetry is shit.

But that's just it. Let's look at the 18th century, when poetry was beautiful and Romantic with a capital R. When men like Byron and Keats were megastars. Now let's look at modern poetry, and the fact that it's ugly and nauseating and that it's not widely read and poets are considered wastes of oxygen. Poetry's only value is to be beautiful, because that's the only value of any art.

So I'm wondering, has anyone else had this happen to them?

The year is 2008-ish.
I'm writing about a fantasy world in which elves have a troubled past. Originally a noble, savage people, large quantities of them have been subjugated, and now live as second-class citizens within other races' cities, primarily those of the humans. However, there is a portion of the elvish people who're still free, and they detest humanity and its coddled, civilized way of life.
Then 2010 comes along and releases Dragon Age. The elves there are startlingly familiar.

Another time:
It's between 2010-11.
I'm currently designing a world for tabletop RPG.
It's a dark fantasy world where a great, powerful maker ignited a grand flame (the sun) to keep the world nurtured, before leaving the world and its peoples to their fate.
The flame kept on burning for a great while, and several mighty kingdoms rose and fell as the flame kept on burning.
But then the flame began to fade, and a great uncertainty crept into the hearts of the mortals. The fire must be kept alive, somehow...
Then Dark Souls is released, with a VERY familiar story to its world.

Is this something that happens a lot in general, writing some quite specific stuff for your personal fiction only for you to see it in a game, movie or similar only a year or so later?

I once talked with a guy on here about his idea for a book with a planet that didn't spin, and the people who lived in the darkness. I gave him some ideas, like trees that produced heat and light. About a year later I read Dark Eden and come on here asking for my royalties, but the guy didn't write it. Moral of the story is, keep your ideas to yourself, we're under constant surveillance.

I think someone from FromSoftware is spying on you. just kidding

The genre of fantasy is really huge, and many people come up with very big imaginary worlds. With so many people making their own worlds, there's possibility of stories being really similar. I haven't played Dragon Age or seen any gameplay, but I can certainly talk about Dark Souls for days. Dark Souls has a ton of inspiration with a theme of mortality, I wouldn't be surprised if the inspirations of Dark Souls and the inspiration of your tabletop fantasy world were very similar.

Does it happen a lot? I wouldn't know but it seems to have happened to you one more than one occasion. Right now I'm currently working on a Romance of the Three Kingdoms-inspired story. I would not be too surprised if say, a Mount & Blade mod was uploaded with a very similar story and concept.

It does happen every few years, though those two would be the most notable examples. The elves of Dragon Age have a literally identical background story to those I wrote about two years before the game was even released.
The Dark Souls one has a few dissimilarities though, and considering that I wrote my story shortly before Dark Soul's release I might have been subconsciously affected by promotional material I don't remember seeing or something, who knows.

Backbound
And the black hound
Is chasing me
It's tracing me
And my movements
Adjusting, learning
Yearning?
While I'm squirming
To set me free of this prison
I pretend to need
Not to bleed
No, to be freed
I should have fun
With friends, love, sex and sun
But I know all too well
The only freedom, may send me to hell
The only freedom comes

How the fuck did I miss this post. Short answer:

Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card

The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
Catch 22 by Joseph Heller
Slaughterhouse 5 by Kurt Vonnegut
American Gods by Neil Gaiman
Dune by Frank Herbert
The Trial by Franz Kafka
Life of Pi by Yann Martel

Those were just off the top of my head books I think everyone should read. There is no definitive list, and if there was, it'd be longer than any book on it.

I hated The Great Gatsby. I'm sorry, but it just really did not engage me at all, and I felt like the whole thing was just sort of a giant anti-climax. American Gods is a good book all in all, but my problem with it is the main character. He is REALLY bland. He doesn't really do anything until the very end, and he has no personality or depth. I feel like the fact that his name is "Shadow" is very fitting for this reason, but it doesn't lend itself to good storytelling. Other than that, good list.

Anti-climax was part of the genius of Gatsby! It's all about the hollowness of America, and that feeling of petering out is all part of that. I'll admit that as a traditional story, it's a let down, but if you get a bit cerebral with it, it's a fine book.

Read everything by Brandon Sanderson. His work is amazing, and with the exception of his Alcatraz series, I've loved everything I've read by him. I noticed someone else recommended the Stormlight Archive, but the thing is that that should really be read last, since it ties in a lot of things from throughout his universe.

I can't really think of any "musts" off the top of my head, but if you finish up with Lord of the Rings and find that fantasy is your thing, I can recommend the following:

The Name of the Wind (and its sequel, "Wise Man's Fear") by Patrick Rothfuss
The Farseer Trilogy by Robin Hobb
The Belgariad (at least the first two books, I thought the rest was sorta meh) by David Eddings
The Sword of Shannara (possibly the rest too, I dunno though, I was VERY young when I read these) by Terry Brooks

And if you feel like reading some honest to God cheesy sword'n sorcery:
Dragonlance (the original two trilogies) by Margaret Weiss and Tracy Hickman
The Dark Elf Trilogy by R.A. Salvatore

Do note that these are my personal preferences, and I don't see them as "must read" as much as just good fantasy books that I enjoy. Many will probably argue that lots of the books I like are quite terrible. :]

I did not read the whole thing, but your style is very interesting. It almost reads like someone telling the story, instead of just BEING a story. Think about books you have read and see how those authors make the story flow. Your dialogue also sounds very stiff, and it really doesn't seem like how real people would talk.
Also, being a professional editor, I can tell you that you NEED editorial work. A lot of people feel that a piece of writing is their baby, and I can sympathize with that feeling, but sometimes you need to let someone throw ideas at you. To be honest, where you are now in terms of your ability is probably not going to land you in with a publishing company (and therefore an author), but I see that you have real potential. Certainly, your storytelling and worldbuilding are fantastic.
If you want to improve your writing, maybe listen to this podcast, I know it's helped me out a lot through the years:

Well, I hope you'll understand if I don't read the entire thing, but I'll do what I normally do, which is drop some comments that occur to me while I'm reading and wrap up with something a bit more coherent.

Right off the bat this exposition dump is a little uncomfortable. There are less clunky ways to do this, and even if you're going for the straight-up dump, all these terms out of context mean nothing to me.

Coomas, are, a useful, tool. But they can be overused. I understand you want to break up your sentence, but remeber you can always use a full stop. Some of these are blatantly misplaced as well:
"During this period of war, a wise man who went by the humble name of Fei, was born"
Here you want During this period of war, a wise man who went by the name of Fei was born.

Or, if you're into the whole brevity thing: "Into this time of war, the mystic Fei was born."

You've got a weird mix of styles going on in this first section. It reads like a folk tale, but it's oddly formal and technical. Do we need to know they started speaking the same languages, and then the customs, and then the celelbrations?

"Unto?" Wew lad, you're not writing the bible here.

Seriously, these sentences are paralysingly long. If you're writing extended sentences, it shoud be as an excuse to show off flowery prose, not to squeeze Di Xinshan's life story into one breath.

Pronouns motherfucker do you use them. Di Xinshan can be abbreviated to 'he' in most of these cases.

Again with the techspeak. "Aimed for maximum efficiency"?

"tribes leaders" doesn't make sense. You want "tribe leaders", "tribal leaders", the "tribels leaders" or really anything but that.

Seriously, I don't need to know everyone's names every time. If you're speaking history, Wal and Huang Xinshan can be shortened to the advisor and his emperor.

Now how you gonna skip over years of unspecified neglect to bring me the establishment of a new administrative branch of the government. I can feel my blood thickening.

Right, that's enough of that. Here's your problem. You';re clearly trying to spin up a world for your yarn to take place in, and that's great, you've clearly given some thought to your backstory. however, this story is just that, backstory. There's nothing in this piece that needed to be stated up front, no giant McGuffin I need to understand to comprehend your world and so it should stay in the background. Cut everything I've commented on and slap us in modern-day imperial court. I mentioned Game of Thrones before, and how much of a chore would it have been to read through a dry thesis on the history of Westeros until we got to the first chapter? It sounds obvious, but stories are driven by characters, and so far you have empty names and boring exposition. You asked if you're being a faggot, and no you're not. I love me some sengoku, and you're clearly buckling up for a heavy undertaking here. So it's with great compassion that I tell you you cannot build a compelling story on that first page. And if you're about to tell me I need to read on to appreciate it, you're making my point. I couldn't appreciate it, because I didn't have to appetite for it after gnawing through the dry plaster that was your opening section. Stick some cherries on there.

These are the kinds of opinions I'm looking for and I really appreciate your criticism.

You're right, I'll start working on improving the first couple pages of backstory. While I do feel it should sort of be there because characters will be mentioning some of the history, it doesn't need to be so long and still get across the important stuff. My main inspiration was Romance of the Three Kingdoms and simple history throughout imperial China and sengoku Japan (that wasn't really important but hey, why not throw it in there).

The reason why I haven't used that many pronouns is because I've worked on previous stuff (only to stop writing it later) only to have people tell me "WHO R O TALKIN ABOT HUR?" when only one character was mentioned or some shit, so I had to write as if I was talking to sheep which i will improve on.

I kind of wrote this willy nilly so it might seem out of places sometimes

The Kingkiller Chronicles by Patrick Rothfuss About an extremely clever arcanist finding his way in the world, my favorite series
The Demon Cycle by Peter V. Brett The World is beset by demons, but only at night. Humanity can not fight back but one boy is sick off hiding and starts looking for a way to attack
The Night Angel Trilogy by Brent Weeks A boy from the slums is taken in by a legendary Wetboy (Assassin with magic) and trained to be a killer
The Lightbringer series by Brent Weeks A fat boy meets his father and as it turns out, he is the leader of an empire, now the oy has to follow in his footsteps and make something of himself. Fantastic magic system
The Broken Empire by Mark Lawrence A runaway prince of 14 is the leader of a band of marauders, and a bit of a cunt. He revels in murder and has his mind set on becoming king

I'd recommend The Night Angel Trilogy most if you're just getting back into it. It's the shortest out of all of them. 650 pages per book, with 3 books total.

I enjoyed Six of Crows. It's book 1 of a trilogy and book 2 doesn't come out for a few months though. Still, I think you'll like it. It's a prison break out story that has some elements of paranormal and magic powers, but not like TOO much magic stuff you know? There are also themes of gang activity, race wars, drug addiction, and a couple good romance stories. Mild spoiler, don't become too invested in a character named "Joost". They set him up and kill him off in the first chapter to show how messed up the drug is.

I especially liked the characters Inej Matthias and Nina and I think you will too .

A poem.
---------------
Empty me of fluids of flesh
Transform me
Rip apart my sickly, broken body
Let my soul run free
Yes
The true me
So powerful and unstable indeed
That I need
Might I say needed
To be shackled
Yes, I heeded
I was tackled
To the flesh
By all what I thought was real
But discovered
That what I feel
Is entirely
And completely
Wrong

----God has Anxiety----
The broken, living dead are walking
Talking
Without words or destinations
Amalgamations
Of impulses and sensory input
And God..
God has anxiety
Because of the evisceration of his creation
Cremate the world with a single stroke
A false vacuum maybe
Time cuts the throat of us all
We run against the concrete wall
And how powerful are we not,
That we gave the almighty anxiety?

Staring at the half lit sky
The transcendent calm starts to settle
As I become one
With all
And all is like unbroken water
Somewhere in the chaos of it all
I find solace
I look at the twinkling star
Wonder
About what's yonder

---Cosmic Crusaders of Nothing---
We are the cosmic crusaders of nothing
Inside of us..
An entire universe of hurt and joy is confined
Like a tiny glass, filled to the brim with an explosive liquid
In an infinitely large room
For us, the liquid is the whole room..
Our love
Our hate
We destroy
Or create
In a corner of this room, we sit with our liquid
Thinking the whole, infinite room must be made out of liquid
When
Not even the entirety of our corner is of this liquid
But it feels so real, so omnipresent
Even though every once in a while, someone loses their liquid
Before they lose the glass themselves
They begin speaking of the emptiness of space, now seen with clear eyes
That this liquid was merely a property of their individual glass.
The other glasses of liquid will assure you this is nonsense, because they are still immersed and drowning in their own liquid
Oh yes, we own this universe
Cosmic crusaders as we are
And in our empty moments we realize..
We are nothing

Ok, so what in looking for isnt really a book, but it was a story. It was a kind of HFY genre set with god closing the gates of heaven and Hell invading earth. And well there was the whole Murica Fuck yeah when they decide to kill all the deamons... but from memory it was a fun read online and I was hoping someone here knows what its called?

Just finished this and hot fucking damn was it an amazing read. Definitely recommend picking this book up if you're in any way interested in famous historical battles. This particular book tells the events of the Siege of Malta back in the 1560's between the Ottoman Empire and the Knights of St. John.

You won't be disappointed. The author goes off actual historical events witnessed by one of the soldiers at the siege. The book is VERY well paced and the action is seriously descriptive. It felt as if I was on the battlefield with those Knights. Lemme know when you read it. I'd like to hear what you think about it.

A friend of mine is apparently being published as part of a "kaiju anthology". I flipped through one of his kaiju books real quick afterwards. It was literally about a guy hiding his "chimera cat-girl" from the government with kaiju in the background. Why are all of my friends more autistic than Ar-Pharazon of the Numemorians?
