Literotica

So I've been reading a few Literotica . com 'books'. And was curious whether /lit/ found any of the somewhat longer story driven stories interesting. I myself found that the category Scifi&fantasy or Novels and Novellas were the best overall. Anyone with experience care to suggest some stories?

So I just finished Atlas Shrugged

I just finished this damned thing that took me too long to read and I wanted to hear your thoughts on it. Overall, her style of writing is too dense and over descriptive for my taste to read in an entire book. However, some of her passages, specifically in regard to character's emotions and reactions were very well done. The plot was cool for the most part. I think she did a good job of capturing the mood of a society taken over by the government(not as well as 1984, but still good). I wish the love triangle of rearden, dagny, and francisco(maybe galt too?) had played out fully. In regards to her philosophy as it pertains to humans thinking-I totally agree with the objectivist train of thought, but am aware that it just isn't fully practical in real life. Humans are emotional beings and are not capable of fully commiting to some emotionless 24/7 rational state of mind. Her vision of 100% laissez faire economics has plenty of holes in it, but so does a fully planned economy. I think we can all agree a mixed economy is best for society, how much of the former and the latter is where people disagree. Thats all I got

Hey /lit/, since you're probably the philosophically most literate board I must ask you a question: What are the benefits of the concept of multiculturalism? Considering especially that we are living in a world in which information is widely available and the "learning from others" argument becomes kind of obsolete (how I see it at least).

I hate this fucking series so much. He's always jerking me off to near climax then he does a 180 and it all turns to shit. Why were the wolves deemed important and then randomly killed off? Why were the dragons deemed important and the bitch just forgot about them? Why was Ice, the sword of Ned, deemed important and then just melted down to make some shitty other swords? Why does Arya learn a sword fighting style that fits her and her sword for only 2 weeks and never uses it again? Why does Bran have to become some tree-root troll? The fuck is Rickon doing? The fuck is Martin doing? The only character development that has even come close to being satisfying is Jamie's.

Should literature be judged with historical context in mind, or should we throw out concerns like that when we're determining something's aesthetic merit? It seems like if we choose the latter option, originality and influence lose their value, and if we don't, we have to judge books that are potentially equal in virtuosity and intelligence as being better or worse simply by that fact that one was released before another. Modern authors get shat on all the time and I wonder if it's justified. We don't really judge them and the great canonical authors on an equal playing field. 400 years ago there was a lot more potential for originality simply by virtue of there being a lot less literature, whereas today literature doesn't really have anywhere to go. But then they also had less to work with and imitate. I'm not sure what to think.

Who are the greatest science fiction writers of all time, /lit/? From that Heinlein thread I gather that many of you do not agree with the "Big Three" (Asimov, Clarke, Heinlein), and I'm inclined to agree. Good 'ideas-men', but not great writers by any means.

Hello /lit/ I need to find a poem which best reflects what "peace" or "war" means, I will read this poem in front of a pretty large audience in the university library. However, I do not have any inspiration AT ALL. The poem also needs to be "praising of peace" and not too difficult (it needed to be easy/ current/comfortable (no literal English translation for what I mean) Please help me?

ITT: Books you had to read twice, for any reason at all. Be it lack of comprehension, sheer enjoyment, being forced to (academic studies) or skimming different chapters looking for certain parts until you've eventually effectively read it again. Pic related. Once just to read it, the second time to enjoy the prose. It was much better the second time when I could sift out the general thoughts and reflections from the stretched plot. Same goes for FaL in Las Vegas and The Great Gatsby really.

What would you recommend a non-reader like me to start with who is deepy interested in Physcology and Physiology? I've been watching more of Frank yang's videos and also looking at stuff like Introverts/extraverts and the relationship between Thought & Language.

Which should I get first?

A Working Theory of Love - someone Carter Beats the Devil - David Glen Gold Oh God, I dunno which to buy next. It won't be until April 2nd, anyway (when my budget renews, although not the 1st cuz it's a Sunday and also I'll have chocolate eggs to eat). Both look enjoyable. I'm leaning towards Carter Beats the Devil.
