Magic Mountain - Mann
Some sort of amoeba blob creature develops sentience on an inherently inhospitable environment. They have several forms and a lopsided hierarchy very different than humans. Their weird sex stuff is also written about in detail. humans find out about them eventually but communication is so difficult as to be considered magic that only a couple blobs actually understand, and they struggle to communicate this to other amoeba blobs. Eventually humans and blobs go their separate ways.

the original, not fan-fic, but yeah

Dark Places, Gillian Flynn? Wouldnt have thought that'd be /lit/s style.
Tiger in the boat lmao
implying this board has anything resembling a style
not having a literary culture based on obsessions about the classics, dense contemporary bullshit, and hating YA
How often do you see people non-ironically talking about shit like GoT here?
If we're taking that route, we should say /lit/'s style consists mostly of a healthy diet of 50% toilet-reading like John Green (praising or bashing, it's the same) and 50% slyly pushing an explicitly racist and pro-totalitarian worldview through sneer and half-baked critique.
I'd say 30% racist half-baked critique based off pseudo-academic workP
et er so n, 20% actual critical analysis that might also have a western racial bias.
But we're in agreement that there is some sort of general trend to the content discussed here, yes?
Man I posted like five books and no one has guessed any of them
A tendency that is less and less literary as time goes by

Rome had to fall? Be the change you want to see? All good things etc?
user, its an anonymous anime board where no benefit can be gained except through exchange of ideas. Your only possible way to effect the system is from your own personal input, you cast your vote about what content you want to see on Veeky Forums by creating that content. Aside from the human attention that you or may not receive based off your input (and quality doesn't always tend to be the determining factor here), ideas are all you get. It's all time spent exchanging temporary dialog, nothing more.
If you stop enjoying the consumption, or the creation, of the content the board holds, you know the solution.
Next time just include the links in the post so I don't have to type this, link them, Ill give it a shot
throwing the phrase "communist" like its an insult.

After two years the crew is supposed to leave to get replaced by another crew but the bitch insists of staying for another two years with her baby because she thinks that this is the purest way to life instead of the modern life outside of the dome

White Teeth or some Zadie book I never read
yeah. i just read it yesterday. Is there anything profound in it? that eroticism inevitably leads toward death? That eroticism attempts to taint reality itself, rather than just perversion perverting perversion?
I don't know about anything psychological or philosophical insights. I just fapped to things while being puzzled as to why I found these scenes fap-worthy.
oh, like when bataille talks about his blind invalid father's degenerative neural pain, and his inhuman screaming? And how bataille left him to die when the germans came a coming in WW1?
That's more Kek worthy than fap worthy to be desu.

Bigass series of novels about, well, no one's entirely sure. Lots of divergence an tangents and strange humour. There's a main character, at least. It's pretty po-mo for something written long before there was any modernism to speak of
Sheherezade? Or however Arabian Nights?
Either Donquixote or Tristram Shandy?
oh well seems they were easier than I thought
Tristram Shandy it is. I'd hardly describe Don Quixote as either a series of novels or post-modern

Isn't being dumb and getting carried away awesome? Really, if you think about it, we owe all the great things in life to stubborn idiocy. It's really a great, great thing and you should all love it.

Except for the little fact that IT MAKES THE BABY JESUS CRY AND YOU SHOULD ALL BE ASHAMED OF IT YOU MORTAL SINNERS WHAT WOULD OUR DEAR MOTHER MARY THINK OF YOU, YOU BUNCH OF NEARSIGHTED MORONS
im drunk and agree we're happier like this
That's nice, dear. Have you guessed the book?
Perhaps rather saying that post-modernism HAS NOTHING on the modern novel's original father would have been a more acceptable statement? That the Don and Sancho confront many characters in Part 2 who have themselves read Part 1as well as many of the 'false histories' heads the list that could be made of pomo-type elements that can be found throughout Book 2.
That sounds a lot like opinions. Fact is: Don Quixote is not post-modernist.
brave new world
...how? Also no
The are elements used in comtemporary literature that borrow from Quijote and that's it.
Which is pointless to say. It'd be like saying the bible has had an influence in western thought.
fuck-up tries to get a business going, but his fuck-up wife wont answer the goddamn phone
exactly. The other guy would say that the holy bible is post-modern.

Well, it IS. The bible is pre-modern, modern and post-modern because it is the TIMELESS WORD OF GOD, YOU HEATHEN

You really shoehorned religion into the second half of that sentence. Also my description is pretty accurate if you've read the book.
Then give a different description, because the novel I said fits exactly your description
local blacksmith bamboozed by crazy preacher
that's wild, I'll have to read it, not the book I was describing.
idiot loses his cat and falls into a well and has wet dreams, talks to an old guy about getting skinned alive, develops facial blemish, wants to fuck a 16 year old cause she has nice ears
now that's a book I want to read
we should make a thread where everyone posts one-sentence ludicrous premises like the ones in this thread and then we all try to write a novel that harmoniously incorporates them all
is that how infinite jest was written?

All of us

Never Let Me Go
bingo. what an awful book
little boy helps prisoner and starts to receive money
Oh, brother. Opinions? I stated a fucking fact. The point i this--
Post-mods like to point out elements in contemporary fiction that distinguish it from the fiction that came before. Some of these distinctions CANNOT apply to Don Quixote because he was ALREADY USING many of these elements in the late 16th century. To call DQ 'post-modern' then is a figure of speech denying the modern 'authentic' its authenticity. Wake the fuck up.
To call DQ 'post-modern' then is a figure of speech denying the modern 'authentic' its authenticity.
So you agree that it's not post-modern. Glad we've settled this.
REMEMBER THAT IT'S ACTUALLY A NOVEL
Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health
space is really really big (but simultaneously really really small) and is a series of overlapping geometric shapes. the narrator is a cuck and gets beaten up frequently
What we talk about when we tlk about lovs
sounds like a greg egan novel, desu
Why the fuck do sci fi writers write so much more in comparison with any other kind of fiction writer? Surely most of your ~500 novels aren't exactly good enough to be worth the effort
- A man sleeps through his train stop and accidentaly causes an apocalypse.
- A sleazy man promotes his new get-rich-quick scheme to a bunch of unlikable stereotypes.
- An autistic man walks a lot and randomly produces articles from Wikipedia, but it's all horribly solemn.
- An indian man shits himself in a public place and another Indian man [REDACTED AS PER DEMANDS OF SHARIA POLICE]
- A man desperately tries to kys but it takes 1k pages.
- A man masturbates to Federer for twenty pages straight.
Assuming this isn't supposed to be a summary, that's wrong. Fantasy authors write far more than sci-fi. And frankly, while some of them are shit, you're an idiot for saying "You wrote a lot so that means you aren't a good writer and I can know this without having read you." Just because you don't have any good ideas doesn't mean they don't.
I see a lot of misguided anger, bad paraphrasing and some of the weirdest ad homs, but no argument
Don't be upset, Greg, he doesn't know what he's saying
Look at this stupid /pol/ shit. "I can instantly win any argument if I just scream NOT AN ARGUMENT! YOU MAD BRO!" Fuck you. You have not mentally aged since adolescence.
