Anyone got a pdf/any format for Chinese Whiskers by Pallavi Aiyar?

I can pick up Heart of Darkness for €11 and Infinite Jest for €20. I'm going to my home country for a few weeks, and I needed a book to read while I'm there. My English isn't very good, so half the reason why I want to read is to develop my grammar. Which one is the better buy in this situation? I'd rather own a paperback than pirate it or lend it from a library.

That's pretty damn expensive. Just go into a charity shop and get them for a euro.

Heart of Darkness isn't what I would call easy either, but it is easier than DFW. Hemingway is a good recommendation.
If you need something to read for a while, try to find his complete stories.

Infinite Jest is really tedious and stupid. It exists so that litfags can act pretentious.

two points to this thread. the first is to collect books by this author. i've read several and have a few physical copies, but only this one digital book.

the second point is to ask if anyone has suggestions to authors akin to this. i truly love this style. the way he writes really enthralls me, he throws my head around and always drops it in confusion while i'm strung along behind an erratic story line. BUT, better than his more novellas are these on consciously implemented brain change. the cosmic trigger series, especially this first book, really made me slow down and think through the long ramifications of his words, and they'd appear in my life the next day (what the seeker seeks...). no book has ever quite held my attention, even while not reading it, as those of Wilson.

thoughts/contributions?

i'm excited to read from a gnostic perspective. i've not had a lot of exposure to it. tho i do desperately love RAW's agnosticism in the face of each chapter he wrote. i love how it spills over in every sentence because, if he's not committed to any belief, every phrase holds doubt and he may be lying or truthing and never says which. it keeps me doubting and investigating and believing and then striking down that belief, my assumptions proving my foolishness
>>17182
thank you, the list is nice. joyce was an obvious one, RAW couldn't stop talking about ulysses (or something like that) so i've been looking for that book.
i've not found his super early stuff. the earliest i've read thus far is the cat trilogy. as for the pubes, i wouldn't have said obsession, tho i've not read enough to truly know. he does seem to focus on some obscure peripheries when his prose gets erotic. but i still like it. by highlighting what's normally glossed over, i stay more engaged with the narrative and envision his painting a lot better. for example, in Masks of the Illuminati, if he had just done the usual 'lola is hot and lithe, skin and breasts, etc' i would've just kinda had a 'yeah yeah yeah' in my head and, while i'd still have read the words, the paragraphs as a whole would have been empty.

How do you find books? Hipster Slut 17/02/15(Wed)06:43 No. 17712 [Reply]

Curious as to the methods people use to find books online.

To share, I use a Chinese app (iOS) named Dou Ding Shu Fang or "DocinBooks". It's green. Tends to have most titles I look for most of the time, but sometimes it's missing some.

I have come into possession of a 5 book series of unpublished memoirs.

They are very interesting to me, but they are written in a style that I think is probably a divisive "love it or hate it" thing.

I am attaching the first book of the five.

This find has made me interested in what other "secret" or unpublished works might be out there somewhere. If you are in possession of or are aware of any such thing, I am interested to hear about it.

Also if you read the attached book, I would be interested in your thoughts on it. It's an odd artifact.

SENT.

COME BACK WITH YOUR THOUGHTS IF YOU FINISH MORE OF THEM, I TOOK A BREAK AFTER THE FIRST ONE AS I HAVE A LIST OF OTHER STUFF ON DECK. BUT IT WOULD BE NICE TO GET ANOTHER OPINION ON IT.

Does anyone have links for free pdf downloads of William Gibson's bridge trilogy? Any or all just would like to read those books again and am very poor. Any help is most appreciated.

Hey, /lit/. I'm going to start attending a class on Thomas Pynchon soon. I've already read through The Crying of Lot 49 and Bleeding Edge. Gravity's Rainbow is next on the chopping block for me. I've skimmed through it, and I can already say that it's gonna be a bumpy ride. I'm looking for all the critical material I can find in regards to it. That being said, I'm especially on the lookout for the Gravity's Rainbow Companion by Steven C. Weisenburger. Does anyone have it and would they be willing to share?

Probably because anyone who delves deep into survivalist lit suffers from some kind of paranoia, and people who are paranoid are paranoid about many things.
