This book seems too difficult, but I've been told that it is necessary if you're really into literature and wanna start a lifelong reading. Should I drop it or pursue? And what are some of the alternatives to it?

Hipster Slut 20/06/03(Wed)07:02 No. 18093

From the title I'm guessing a third grade English textbook would be a good substitute

>lifetime reading

Did someone stop you from reading OR ask to hold an examination in %your_picrelated%? Stop whoring attention and go read somepin' as'ome!

>I've been told

And what if I tell you that your mum is hoe and your dad is cuck?

Srsly, how is rhetoric related to reading? Mb I'm a total retard and "lifelong reading" = being a belles-lettres reviewer - then it has at least some logic. And even in this case you wouldn't need to study rhetorics. Divide spoken and written speach, anon.

Any avid readers more interested in action adventure novels? I'm looking for ones that are more niche.

Hipster Slut 20/07/13(Mon)09:26 No. 18101

You should check out Black Opal by (IIRC) Stephen Heisel. It was a really good read, got pretty risque out of nowhere for a second too

Hipster Slut 20/08/09(Sun)10:52 No. 18103

Check out the sea stories of Percy Westerman like Mystery Island, Nameless Island and Midshipman Raxworthy. They are classic old adventure stories.

What does /lit/ think of Melville? I am on page two of the first chapter of Moby Dick. What are some of his strengths and weaknesses that stand out the most, and what should I expect?

Why do I want this to be my world? Am I tired of the status quo or is it that I like the idea of drugs too much to admit I have a problem?

Hipster Slut 19/10/12(Sat)19:34 No. 18035

Well, it would certainly simplify things to live in such a world...

Hipster Slut 19/11/20(Wed)04:36 No. 18047

What is the basic premise of this book? I don't know what it is. I feel so ignorant. I can't have peace until I reach omniscience which is the standard I have for myself. lol
I'm not against escapism as a life existence. I think all people of all life types should be accepted. That may be the bed rock of this book, I don't know. But I would say that this book is not something I absolutely understand. I think there is no reason to mistreat those with different ways of being. I'm not any amount interested in functioning in that general manner. I don't think there's good reason to. I'll listen to explanations for how it would be but I'm not convinced. I'm convinced I won't be convinced. But maybe there's something somewhere that meets my standards of proof. lol Based.

Writing own stories is good hobby, i think. The idea was born, but there is one catch. Such a grandiose plan will pull only an experienced and very talented writer, and not a beginner. Therefore, we must start with fairy tales. I am begginer so can not write interesting and adventure stories. Plus my essay in colege also looks bad,so I use help of https://edusson.com/admission-essay-writing-service

I'm not smart enough to tell you how to improve this but it at the moment it is very generic.

Hipster Slut 19/08/24(Sat)00:25 No. 18018

You have trouble with emphasis. The amount of detail you describe things in isn't according to overall narrative significance, but rather what you find to be the most interesting on a moment to moment basis.

This is not a smart way of writing. It results in the reader fixating on random background noise while important story details get completely missed.

Hipster Slut 19/09/20(Fri)09:41 No. 18025

Your story is not bad for reading. I think i am bad in writing own compositions. I need more practise in expressing own minds and points of view. Now i sometimes use help with writing essays in rushessay review here https://topessayguiders.com/rushessay-review/

What do you think of José Saramago? I read 'The Elephant's Journey' and thought it was good. His style really drew me in and was very clever. Curious to know if anyone has read any of his other works and what they thought of them.

I'm probably about to start writing a thesis on his work in the next few months, I've read most of his work and over the next 9 months, I'll probably have read all of it. I think from that it's pretty obvious what I think of him. What do you wanna know? I'll try to answer as best I can
