What does /lit/ think of graphic novels? Do they hold true literary merit? What are some that you have enjoyed? Discussion of comics collected as trades such as watchmen is fine.

Critiques - Read OP's rules, you fools

7 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ]
Okay guys, the last one was the best I've ever seen on /lit/ (sorry for deleting the original redo yesterday, I was not feeling well) so let's give it a go again. I'm sorry to say this will probably be my last one for a while. This is where the magic comes from: 1. I will be providing critiques to people who either include a critique in their post or link back to their submission with a critique. Choose who you think you can provide to most thought and assistance to, as if I find your critique to be lazy or insubstantial you will be instructed to compensate. 2. Most people will not get past rule 1 as it cannot be "enforced" and the reward is less guaranteed. The idea is to continue providing critiques past the first, linking back to your original submission in the hope that someone else also providing multiple critiques will see and choose yours. It would only take a few people doing this to provide a revolving door of critiques. Remember, a the purpose of a critique is to provide perspective and even a great critique is just one person's perspective. A good author needs to know what not to listen to but you must also keep your mind open and be wary of yourself. Be honest but constructive. There is always the chance of praise but if you are looking for look elsewhere. I encourage everyone to read as many submissions as they can and if you see something you like it won't hurt to drop a compliment as the author will appreciate it - you know you would. Tell your subject what they did right so they can build on it but focus on the critique, not the commendation - that is the purpose, after all. Good luck everyone! Remember: "The first draft of anything is shit"

Tip-top kek! I never assumed that this was possible, but I guess it is.

This might be a shitty question, but I'll try it anyway. How do I get into reading? I really want to be one of those people who reads a book a week. My vocabulary is suffering big time, and I just feel like it'll be beneficial mentally to me (if that makes sense). However I can never really bring myself to read without having to deliberately force myself. When I do read, I'm kinda slow, constantly have to re-read, and my attention is hard to keep. Rarely do I read a book that's just locked in my attention. For example, right now I'm basically free for the rest of the day; plans were canceled. I know I'm going to just sit on the computer and do unproductive things all day, and I have at least 8-10 books on my very modest bookshelf right now that I haven't read yet, yet I just don't feel any desire to pick one up and read. Not to mention I have like 100+ books on my Amazon wishlist I have a bit of an interest in reading. Maybe I need to just buy a really comfy chair or something. Any advice?

Post your book ideas, others say if they'd read >dystopian novel about a stagnant future wherein all politics are replaced with people writing dystopian novels to push their political views by misrepresenting the view they dislike with a thinly veiled strawman which is in control of a "nightmarish future" (near identical in every novel) where the government is corrupt because that political group is in control, and portraying the view they're pushing as the rebellious class oppressed by the mean government whom eventually gets overthrown because their philosophy always prevails in the fictional world where everything goes according to what the author thinks >at the end of each year, the novels are rated by the public and the one with the best ratings dictates how the government will proceed >nobody pays a lick of attention to what the government does anyway because they're too busy staying inside their homes angrily typing away about how shit their opposing sides' views are

I've masturbated to this book so many times. I've read it 77 times, each time discovering new complexities. Every single page of my copy is marked with findings and annotations. Shit, I meta'd this book so hard I had to break its spine (/lit/erally) and put all the pages in a binder. I've fucking masacrated the plot, the internal semiotics, shit, even characters stood no chance against my inquiries. Niggers, thanks to this book I've obtained various literary skills such as actually counting the time characters spend on talking when moving from point A to B - shit's cray. The afterword? I know it by heart. Eco would be my literary waifu if he was a woman, unfortunately I'm not a faggot, so our relationship is purely platonic. If I was to mark on plebeian decimal scale, "Il nome della rosa" (I've learned fuckng Italian thanks to this book) would score an erection/10. What are your favourite books, /lit/?

Why did JK Rowling write Ron and Hermione to be together? I don't see how they're compatible. It was always a hard sell for me. It felt wrong the entire time when reading the book, anyone else feel that way? Harry's love for Ginny felt way too sudden, as well.

>Dystopian Sci-Fi novels ? What issues do we face today that could potentially lead to dystopia? Seems like writers are overlooking that one universal issue and I can't find a good novel about it
