I do not read this book but I like the stories by Ryu Murakami. I want to read this book too after reading good reviews from customers. But I do not have a lot of time for reading books because I am student and bored with studing. But you know I am bad at writing so I am a user of https://buyessay.org/

I do not read this book but want to read it in the future. I am fond of literature and reading books. But now I do not have much time for reading books an writing essays in college. The Golden rule of success: each of your work should be better than the previous one. Then sooner or later you will get to the goal — just because you do not go the distance.So, I needed to get help with essays from https://writemyessayonline.com/college-essay-writing-service.html

I need more practice in English grammar. From time to time I buy essay on https://writemyessayonline.com/ because my English skills are poor.

The first book that enthralled you, the one you couldn't put down, and that made you an avid reader. This was it for me. The way the author you go from the perspective of a general, to describing an epic battle, to going to the story of your average soldier or sailor captured me and I've been an avid reader ever since.

Hipster Slut 18/10/31(Wed)13:35 No. 17905

This book looks new for me. I did not hear about it before. But want to read. It at once. I like to read novels by Charles Dickens. But I am college student, so I have not time for reading. But if I like literature I must to be perfect writer. But I am bad in it. So, I used help here https://essayshark.com/buy-cheap-essays.html for writing papers.

Cornelius Ryan spent his life writhing about World War II, and did so at a time when many of the political and military leaders were still alive, and his interviews with common foot soldiers were comprehensive as well. I got interested in it after researching my grandfather who served in the Pacific. When he came home he hid his old uniform away and never said anything about it so naturally I was curious. But I would have to put Ryan's novels and the old Time Life World War II series as the best accounts of World War II out there.

I've asked myself this question so many times.
The people living in that world are completely brainwashed and stripped of their free will, yet they are having the time of their life: constantly indulging in carnal and material pleasures.
Really makes you think

Hipster Slut 18/11/18(Sun)19:48 No. 17914

It’s a utopia for for the common man and a dystopia for the isolated weirdos

Hipster Slut 18/12/10(Mon)04:52 No. 17917

I've always considered it a Utopia, assuming of course you're an Alpha. It's been a long ass time but I think the Betas had it ok too?

Why are some people so infatuated with Lovecraft? He is probably the most overrated horror writer ever.

He is basically emulating Hindu mythology and name drops 40 000 different gods while building some pseudo-imaginative netherworld where everything boils down to madness and hurr nothing makes sense durr. Pretty much every neckbeards wet dream besides watching anime.

Speaking about horror authors I do not know good of them. If you know it, can you recommend some horror authors? I like to read different fanfiction stories about Haloween for example. But I do not like to write such kind of stories by myself, because in college I often ordered essays on https://essayshark.com/

As a former 57.14%-er, I am obliged to suggest Greek classics and philosophers despite not actually having read them.
Just kidding - although stoicism is dope and I like Roman Imperial propaganda as much as the next guy (Meditations).
To be a little controversial, I suggest you start with things which you actually like instead of shunning the genre fiction ghetto.
In both of your cases it is impossible to suggest anything without knowing what you have already read. Were you dissatisfied with it? This is the best way to find new literature - washing away the foul or saccharine taste by figuring out who the author was raping and pillaging to make a quick buck. Soon you'll be more cultured than a bucket of yogurt, and you'll be full of literary factoids to impress people at, uh, parties or something. Yeah, sure.

Hipster Slut 18/07/20(Fri)13:10 No. 17895

Okay, lets see.
In the past few years of not reading, I had read 5 books all by one author, Robert Cormier, who's books I rather enjoyed. Recently, the novel to make me think that I should be reading more was Nabokov's Lolita. Since then, I read Perfume by Patrick Suskind, and I thought it was utter crap, and I do not have any access to English books currently, due to being overseas.
If you could suggest to me anything that could be of interest to me, I would greatly appreciate it, and I will definitely try reading anything that you suggest.

Thanks for Cormier - got interested skimming his works and grabbed an EPUB of The Chocolate War. Really needed this in my life five years ago.
Currently brain crippled post-dental surgery. I can confidently suggest only things I really liked from my own past several years of not reading. Very selfish memory - will take it for a jog and find more suitable offerings when meds wear off!
Ordered by train of thought:
- There Are Doors by Gene Wolfe
- The Forever War by Joe Haldeman
- Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson (Cryptonomicon is superb, and the writing is much better. Totally different books. However some people find this one to be completely unreadable!)
- Naked Lunch by William S. Burroughs
- A Confederacy of Dunces by John K. Toole

I'm going throw my hat down and second your request for books to culture myself up. Was really just bluffing and repackaging advice I've received. Patricia Highsmith writes great suspense novels, check her out, I have EPUBS of all of these suggestions if you want. Sherlock Holmes holds up very well. It's interesting to watch Doyle's evolution, plus the mysteries are bite-sized.
