The Slap demographic seems to be violent tinfoil wearers, it's true.

Grow a beard, wear some half-cabs, drink whiskey and moan about how the government is keeping you down. Man.

Anyone recommend me some Cormac McCarthy? I read Blood Merridian a whiles back and loved it. Not too familiar with his other work.

Just read these for a science fiction class I'm in


This one was alright, a little too long with some unnecessary characters and the ending was pretty bogus.


I loved this one, Stephenson does a great job at creating a pretty believable future post-state world. Definitely recommend this one.

Slowly reading this between school stuff

Good luck. Took me like 2-3 years to finish.
Seriously. I think you need a field guide to get through this one.

Just finished 100 Years of Solitude by Marquez. long, but pretty good.

i second this recommendation. i'm not much of a sci-fi guy, but this book is both ridiculous and believable at the same time. it's something different, that's for sure

I too fall into the SLAP violent/tinfoil wearer category.  Ah well.

Just finished rereading Henry Miller's Tropic of Cancer.  Not sure what is next, possibly a book on Swedish Death Metal or something with short stories.  Humor wouldn't be bad either, I've been reading some dark ass shit lately.

Gravity's Rainbow takes alot of concentration.  I got about 200 pages in one summer, I enjoyed it but more than that I was just kind of amazed by it.

100 Years of Solitude is alright.  I was pretty over it after they stopped talking about the oldest guy though.  The inventions/gypsies/tied to tree was rad.

This one is rad.  About a real little kid who lives in the slums of Paris with a former prostitute and has something funny to do/say in every situation.
I thought it wasnt just him solo, shouldve stuck with my og thought.

I love it.  It's got that whole sense of adventure plus a whole lotta fuckin'.  If you put it into the context of when it was written, it's VERY graphic.

That's actually the first Bukowski novel I ever read, and my favorite of his work. Top 5 books all time.
