Chart thread. Can someone post the one with the three best authors from their respective countries?
>>12761033GR is fun as fuck
This chart sucks, somebody post a good one
>Implying Alan Moore's novels are worse than Tolkien.Absolute pseud
>>12761245Maybe thats what this thread is about. Post a better one nigger.
I went through this twitter thread and listed all the books they designated ''red flags''
>>12761316this is a good one
Could someone make a Chart on Ethics please?
>>12761316Interesting how many of these are by white American men. Almost like there's some kind of unconscious bias on the part of these Twitter thots Oh well, at least they left my boys Steinbeck and Melville out of this.
>>12761303I don’t have any cracker
>>12761617>>12761303And I’m too lazy to make one
>>12761623Type one out then. I'm reasonably new to /lit/ and would like to know what you people have to say.
>>12761597desu I was shocked by ''marley and me''
>>12761033moby dick is super fun (if you can deal with the whale manual portions, which i personally didn't much)plus ulysses is fun, at parts. still in the middle of it and i'm intimidated as all hell
>>12761316Interesting how much of this is baby's first edgy novel or private school ennui core: all stuff that's both tiresome and aspirational.
>>12761316I'm glad I love all of those (including Marley and Me). I'd never go on a date with some hyper-liberal Twitter thot and the idea that they think such a list even remotely impacts true intellectuals is laughable.
>>12761316why are white western twitter women the way they are?
>16 replies in a chart thread and no actual chart posted
>>12762004I posted >>12761316 tyvm
>>12761033Crime and Punishment is genuinely enjoyable though
>>12762004Should add The Kindly Ones to that list
>>12762004>Babyfuckerhas anyone actually read this book?I can't understand the appeal at all
>>12761316This whole thread is gold. Pic related is exactly how I imagine someone who doesn't want to date you because of your favorite book/author (which is Lolita in this case).
>>12762168which one is the best one on the subject?
>>12762168communism sounds good on paper but it never works
>>12762399To cover up and/or distract from imperfections.
>>12762502In one sentence, communism has been refuted
>>12762502Japan adopts capitalism and suffers rolling famines:>this was necessary for industrializationIndia has capitalism force on them from abroad and suffers multiple famines:>this was necessary for industrializationWorld Bank and IMF's free trade demands for African nations depresses their once rising wages:>this was necessary for their developmentPrivatization of Post-Soviet Russia leads to biggest drop of life expectancy in human history:>this was necessary for economic growth9.1 million die of starvation ever year:>it's okay because obesity is a bigger problem than ever tooStalin and Mao industrialize and collectivize massive agrarian nations over a relatively short period and famines occur:>see, communism is good on paper but it never works
>>12762654except that japan, india, post soviet russia and the majority of nations where the world bank and imf intervened are still here, with at least semi-capitalist systems. the soviet union went bankrupt and china's trade economy is extremely capitalist.
>>12762660What’s wrong with Fromm?
>>12762496The "best" is probably Kaptail but most of them are really good, even for the capitalist.>>12762654High iq>>12763204Yes because eternal dept is the "working" system.
I love it when some cunt on /r/books regurgitates a /lit/ chart and everyone on /r/books thinks that /lit/ is a secret enclave of misunderstood geniuses.When will they realise that post2016 /lit/ DOES NOT READ kek

>>12762004>FriskThat book gave me nightmares.
>>12761301>>12761033>tolkein is badthank god /lit/ hasn't discovered the inklings. I can't imagine how peverted barfield's reformed romantic anthroposophy would be under the supervision of such base minds.
I heard bad opinions about this chart. Can you give some alternatives?
>>12763513why the FUCK would you read the same book over and over again. zizek is literally famous for writing the same garbage in all of his books and even plagiarizing himself
>>12761316At least Ulysses is still cool
>>12763307Wow this one's really bad.
>>12762348What a fine specimen. I shall write a sonnet about her bountiful fivehead
>>12761033>OP has read every graphic novel unpublished and deemed it shitNext.
>>12762348>>12762399She's wearing an abundance of red because she is absolutely desperate for someone to love her, or at least throw her a pity fuck. No woman who reads to this extent can be naturally naive about colour theory like this. She's only pushing away imaginary Lolita fans to give away the secondary assumption that people approach her in the first place, which they don't, else-wise you wouldn't have this hyper-made-up-doll-face smothered in red (her bra shirt also bright red) making such an eager diluted pupil faced photo sent out to potentially millions.
>>12764066I thought women wore red lipstick to hide herpes. Wasn't that why the romans invented it? I don't know. It's ugly though.
>>12764087That's another good call. Typically speaking when a woman denies a man it's quite plausibly in situations where she can be seen, an indicator that she values herself more than the person she denied, in an attempt that the man in the room she liked might see this value. Brainy people pretend they aren't shallow as a last defence, Brainy people who admit they are shallow are often just celibate and not in any involuntary way, no games etc.
>>12764117>Brainy people who admit they are shallow are often just celibateThis is why I am asexual.
>>12763870has anyone actually gone through this chart? just go to uni ffs

>>12763421Yhe tigerHe destroyed his cageYesYESThe tiger is out
>>12761316>Lolita>Catcher in the Rye>Fight ClubAre they expecting every person who reads these to automatically have the opinion "you know, the main character might be onto something here" or some shit?

>>12763625I don’t even like Vonnegut but Slapstick is great. This person basically likes all the Vonnegut I hate and hates what little I like of him
>>12763870>I can't handle maths>Unreadable edition
>>12762004Good version of this chart coming in
>>12761316>BNWwhat is controversial about that book?
>>12764980>Are they expecting every person who reads these to automatically have the opinion "you know, the main character might be onto something here" or some shit?Not every person who reads it but the people who say these books are their favorite book usually have that opinion.
>>12763908And what's wrong with Fromm?
>>12766922Good chart, but I've come to appreciate Garfield on new levels after hearing Barrymore's brilliant analysis, which I will link to below. I would argue that any Garfield chart is incomplete without its presence, since only the most advanced readers would be able to fully penetrate such a layered body of work without any external help.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NAh9oLs67Cw

charts for farming and gardening books?or other books for useful skills?
>>12768506>>12768528thanks. any recommendations from this list?
>>12768506I wouldn't say Stoner to be depressing. Quite wholesome and stoic. Most of the parts just made me happy because Stoner wouldn't give up and commit suicide.
>>12768642Add pastures quadrant by Donald stokes to that.
>>12762004>>12766967hey jw do y'all have any idea where i might find eden eden eden in english?
>>12762004Ligotti definitely belongs on there but I would swap out Songs of a Dead Dreamer & Grimscribe with My Work Is Not Yet Done: Three Tales of Corporate Horror. Songs of a Dead Dreamer & Grimscribe have some pretty fucked up stories but nothing as relentlessly pessimistic as My Work Is Not Yet Done (the main story of the Three Tales of Corporate Horror collection). MWINYD focuses on a wannabe office shooter who tortures and kills his coworkers in some pretty disturbing ways.
>>12761033Where does the "Dostoevsky is unenjoyable" meme come from? Were plebs forced to read him in high school? He has an immensely enjoyable sense of humor and a lot of crazy stuff happens in his novels.
>>12762502Communism isn't possible yet. It can only come about when the automation revolution is complete. Marx and the revolutionaries inspired by him severely misjudged the timeline. As an ideology it makes more sense every passing day, but is still infinitely inferior to capitalism at the moment of this post.
>>12768885I do remember reading a passage from C&P in high school.
>>12768913What did your class think of it?
>>12768945They were barely interested because no one took literature classes as serious thing.
>>12768506god I hate wide sargasso sea, that book did not need to exist, Jane eyre is perfectly fine

>>12770906Too skewed to modern novels, and confusingly mixes them with much older sources.

any history charts lads?
>>12771239fuck off fascist
>>12771754what if I want to read his christian apologies? I mean, I know the books on the subject he's written, but I know little more than that
>>12761033Is there some software that /lit/ uses to make these charts, or is it all just done in some image editing program?
Anybody have a chart for Hindu philosophy?
>>12762348IIRC, the person who called Lolita a "red flag" is a self-hating pseud. She called it a great book that she had read several times. Somehow, calling it your favorite book is still a red flag? Maybe with braindead normies. But if you have any respect for your date's thinking skills, then you should have no problem saying the truth.
>>12763683thanks for this
>>12771773None of those are actually good.>road to reality, Penrose>pastures quadrant, stokesRead these and then we'll talkt.scifag due to unfortunate decisions in life
>>12761316in all fairness, most of those books suck
>>12763625>a Vonnegut chartlol this is like having a chart for Stephen King
>>12762502that's literally every 12 year old's opinion on communism. Go out and ask a 12 year old what they think about communism.1. "i dont know"2. "it sounds good on paper but in reality doesnt work"
Does anyone have a guide for reading Evola?
>>12772293Start with mystery of the grail, that is the common recommendation

>>12763457>no jojoTrash list
>>12762033Yeah, I don't get why people classify Dostoevsky as pseud/posturing-core. When I read TBK I couldn't put it down at parts, I hadn't been that into a book since I was a kid. Didn't Nabokov say he wrote soap operas? Nothing particularly elitist about it.
>>12763421Reading the Life of Pi atm, my god that first part is a slog. Dedicating 130 pages to the origins of his name and him finding three different religions as a 12 year old becomes incredibly uninteresting, how did this book sell so well...
>>12761316>top lass Rand gets TWO mentions on the sjw butthurt listPottery
>>12763625timequake was so fucking trash
>>12761316Can't argue with this. If someone told me any of these was their favourite book I would immediately think less of them, and would never date them unless they were very attractive
>>12773581where does mr palomar fit into this? its the first thing ive read by him and im not really sure im grasping the point of it
>>12763575Based, and Jamespilled
Does anybody have that chart about “books to understand post-modern society”?
>>12777281If there's no list, I'd suggest checking Lyotard: postmodern condition&Baudrillard: Simulacra and simulation
>>12763536Prot trash. Real the DR.
>>12777972No Rudyard Kipling?
>>12771065thanks, good reply, that's helpful
>>12777041Mr Palomar is a weird place to start with. It's more in the vein of his short story collections, though not as good as Marcovaldo or Cosmicomics.

>>12763433this is surprisingly really good.
>>12763485this is awful. how is this even a chart, its just a pointless list
>>12770819Oh I don't know if anyone cares but that critical thinking book "Creative and Critical Thinking" is impossible to find online. I'm starting a new job on on monday when I get paid I'm buying a used copy and making a pdf. I'll post it here for the boys
>>12761316This is a pretty good list actually.I don’t really understand what is bad about “Infinite Jest”.Also did anyone else see “Eat Pray Love” on the Chart? WTF? I wish she would have Tweeted why they are flagged by her

>>12777039Don't worry -- their disgust at your your disgust is undoubtedly mutual.>>12767694>>12772216If any of you are feeling brave, then by all means publish YOUR list of red flag books. Otherwise, simply concentrate on getting the sand out of your genitalia and leave /lit/.

>>12761316What is wrong with Hunter Thompson and Pynchon?
>>12773750best in thread.
>>12781791As human beings, probably just as much as the rest of us. As authors of the works in question, only their complete lack of foresight in not being born non-binary children with helicopter mommies.

Is there one for the crusades?
>>12763889>no kostantinos kavafis
>>12763805this but unironically
Subversive literature? Especially looking for stuff that questions the fundamental authority of governmental bodies. The US founding fathers would be a good place to start but after that I wouldn't know.
>>12761033Graphic Novel are not the same as literature.I hate how some americans see comics as an subproduct of literature. That's wrong. Comics are an art form on its own.

any actually good light novel charts?
>>12761033made by someone who has never read
>>12785812No but this one is great too ty
Someone post a chart for someone who loves little girls plz..
>>12781632You don't understand the point being made. The question is not 'is eg Gravitys Rainbow a good book?' It's 'which books, if brought up by a date, are red flags?' And while Gravity's Rainbow is a good book, its definitely a red flag regards dating. Ask yourself who would bring that book up in conversation on a date, and why. A person who does such a thing is either socially inept, pretentious, or attempting to brag, or all three.
>>12786290There's Lolita and hmmmm... I sure enjoyed Netochka Nezvanova, notably the scenes Netochka and Katya were loving and kissing each other in secret. Really cute moment.
>>12786533Thanks but I'm looking for something like The ice Palace by Tarjei Vessas, Tiger Tiger By Fragosso and Lamb by Bonnie Nadzam

>>12771773>Sam HarrisWow, I didn't know /sci/ is fucking retarded.
>>12777972Solid list, but it needs some Kipling. He was one of the best short story writers of the 19th century.
>>12761316no lord of the rings? no harry potter? no game of thrones? no hunger games? no dosto? no tolstoy? no stephen king? no mccarthy? let this be a lesson to you all, girls aren't into 'analyzing' literature, they like things that are entertaining and they can take at face value. they don't like the idea of a guy being so indecisive and weak-minded that he has to be persuaded by a book, placing his trust in another flawed human being. nothing turns them off more than hearing, 'well, i think it makes some good points.' it would seem they are wary of 'subversive' literature, like the red scare of the 50's in the opposite direction. i don't take this seriously at all, i had a girlfriend i introduced to the fountainhead and it became one of her favorite books.
