The minute you finish it.
You come back here.
And we will talk about it.

If we do that now, I will accidentally give spoilers.

Thieves of Blood is a fun read. Also Rage is another good one if you like high fantasy.

Don't get me wrong he's good, but the Lord of the Rings is meh. The Hobbit in my opinion was his best work.
User avatar #4320 to #4317 - ljxjlos ONLINE (07/27/2014) [-]
LotR is far from his best book. The Children of Húrin is. Which, by the way is the best book ever.
User avatar #4321 to #4320 - MrDeadiron (07/27/2014) [-]
It was done by his son.
User avatar #4322 to #4321 - ljxjlos ONLINE (07/27/2014) [-]
Done, yeah - Idea and most of the fragments were J.R.R Tolkiens, tho - his son was a genius by his own right, too, yeah, but Tolkien still deserves the praise for it.
User avatar #4324 to #4322 - MrDeadiron (07/27/2014) [-]
Well that's different I find his son to be a better writer and I enjoy his works more.
User avatar #4327 to #4324 - ljxjlos ONLINE (07/27/2014) [-]
Don´t get me wrong, I love his sons works and what he did with his fathers legacy, but J.R.R. Tolkien was just one of a kind in my opinion. Unparalleled.
User avatar #4330 to #4327 - MrDeadiron (07/27/2014) [-]
I like his works a lot. I really hope that it didn't come off as if i didn't. I just feel that in certain regards he tends to be blown out of proportion.
User avatar #4260 to #4259 - newforomador ONLINE (07/26/2014) [-]
Take a look at the Earthsea series. I haven't read any of them yet, but I've seen a movie based on the universe and it was pretty good. If you've already read these, I've heard that the Wheel of Time series is amazing.

Best Book Ever 11/10
#4253 - tobituary (07/24/2014) [-]
The first time I read animal farm, I was about 15.
It was during the summer holidays, we had been told to buy the book because we'd be going through it next (School) year and I just decided to go through it early.

At that point I had no knowledge of the book or George Orwell.
First time I read through the book, I believed that fucker Napoleon right up until the very end.

How ashamed should I be?
User avatar #4249 - jokeface (07/23/2014) [-]
Whoa, I never knew this board existed.

So I've been listening to a lot of audiobooks lately, because I deliver pizza and it's nice listening to a book while I'm driving around all day. Up until now I've been listening to John Green books, because even though I'm 23 my inner child is still in high school. But now I've finished his books, and I want to move on to the more classic novels from back in the day, like The Great Gatsby, Moby Dick, the Iliad/Odyssey, etc. But there's so many classics that I don't know where to start. Any recommendations?
User avatar #4262 to #4249 - skydiving (07/26/2014) [-]
Is TLOTR considered a classic? Because I fucking love those audiobooks. I particularly enjoyed White Fang, but never listened to the audiobook, and the old fairy tales (like the Grimm versions) are terrifying and occasionally soothing.
User avatar #4250 to #4249 - ecomp (07/23/2014) [-]
Is delivering pizza easier / less work than working in the pizza shop? How often do naked girls answer and give you BJs? How often do they answer with just a towel? How often do you get stiffed money?
User avatar #4251 to #4250 - jokeface (07/23/2014) [-]
I prefer delivering because I like being able to just sit in my car and let my mind wander, whereas working in the store requires a lot of footwork and concentration. However, when business is really slow, it takes a toll on the drivers, because we're paid less than minimum wage and so we rely on deliveries to get by. On a slow day I'd rather be an in-store worker, or an "insider" as we call them, because they get paid the same amount whether we have business or not. But on a good business day a driver can usually expect to go home with close to a hundred dollars or more in tips (depending on how many hours you worked that day).

I've never been greeted at the door by a naked girl, although sometimes their clothing will be revealing. For example, one time a woman answered in a white tank top and no bra, and I could see through it. She wasn't that attractive though. And most of the time when I do get greeted by beautiful girls, I'm more fixated on their faces. A good body is a good body, but after a while they all look the same. I prefer looking at pretty faces because they're always unique. Of course, this gets stressful because etiquette dictates that a driver must not hit on a customer, as it reflects poorly on the company and could make the customer feel uncomfortable. And one several occasions I've had customers who were stunningly beautiful, and I was reluctant to throw out their contact information after delivering their orders. But I had to force myself to resist flirting with them, and that gets to you after a while. It's like catching a giant marlin and then having to throw it back into the water.

And I get stiffed money on a daily basis. But it rarely has to do with the service and mostly has to do with the area to which I'm delivering. Our delivery area is broken up into several sections of the city, and several times a day we get orders for this one neighborhood populated almost entirely by Puerto Ricans on welfare. They rarely tip well, if at all.

SOOOOOOOOOOOOO. went down to my local Barnes and Nobles to get starbucks cuz only place nearby that is starbucks coffee. Saw the new Bryan Lee O'Malley book "Seconds" and gave it a quick 2 hour read. Not gonna lie, the ending was so stereotypical and I was kind of hoping for a MUCH different ending (Spoiler) I wanted everything to go back to when she was still renovating lucky's and about to pay the contractor but instead of getting back together with Max she confessed what she learned about Andrew in the book and then they either got together or not and have continued with Katies or Lucky's or whatever the fuck she decided to call that shit. Also a lesbian scene with katie and hazel wouldn't have hurt.

It's a comic. It is only like 2 hours worth of reading

Hey guys! Look what I found in the antique section of a Half Priced Books!

I picked it up for a dollar just because I liked the description on the dust cover and become one of my favorite books. Basically it's mystery about a serial killer who has taken over a town with fear and is controlling everything they do. Check it out if you get a chance.

Anyone here a fan of Haruki Murakami? I haven't had time for much reading lately, but currently audiobooking my way through 1Q84 and I've read most of his other stuff previously. My favourite author by a country mile.
User avatar #4237 to #4229 - christmouth (07/21/2014) [-]
Have you read Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World?
User avatar #4241 to #4237 - misterymisterman (07/22/2014) [-]
Finished it pretty recently. Not my favourite one, but I enjoyed it a lot. Good ending, as I recall.
User avatar #4242 to #4241 - christmouth (07/22/2014) [-]
I see. It's just that it's the inspiration for one of my favourite anime, so I've thought about reading it, but I don't really know, as I don't really read much, and when I do, it's just something simple like Game of Thrones.
User avatar #4243 to #4242 - misterymisterman (07/22/2014) [-]
Oh, which anime? I'm not huge on it in general, but inspired by Murakami is a good starting point.

Murakami books tend not to be exceptionally heavy reads or anything, they're just quite weird in style. They usually tend to be about very mundane people doing very mundane things, interspersed with his own brand of surrealism and magic. It's a style I like a lot, but it's easy to see that some people wouldn't.
User avatar #4244 to #4243 - christmouth (07/22/2014) [-]
It's called Haibane Remnei. myanimelist.net/anime/387/Haibane_Renmei

It's really good, and not like the anime you see on the anime channel, as it's more philosophical, symbolic, and it also incorporates some heavy themes like the afterlife, suicide, redemption, etc.

I see. That's what I also thought, and it might be too much for me to fully enjoy it, as I said before, I don't read much, but I'm going to give it a try.
User avatar #4245 to #4244 - misterymisterman (07/22/2014) [-]
As long as it isn't moe out the wazoo, I'll probably be able to stomach it - I'm really not a fan of the uguu kawaii desu waifu-chans and such.

If you don't get on with Hard-Boiled Wonderland, I'd recommend you try Norwegian Wood - for my money it's probably the most accessible Murakami book.
User avatar #4246 to #4245 - christmouth (07/22/2014) [-]
Me neither, which I also why I don't really watch anime at the time.

If you want some decent anime that is without all that, then look up Yoshitoshi Abe, he's the creator behind Haibane Remnei.

I just ordered Hard-Boiled, so if I like it, then I might try out that one.

Anyone on GoodReads and fancy looking at my books and giving me more and more suggestions for my To-Read pile?
It would be appreciated, I've got enough to read this summer now, I hope, but I need more for the holidays when I'm off from University.
And I know, I really haven't read much at all. Didn't read much as a kid, and I'm trying to make up for that now, hence reading like 10 books since June or something.
