Infernal Devices. If you like Steampunk you'll only read it eventually anyway so may as well be now.

What's this like? I read Vernon God Little, or I should say I started reading it but found it so dull I barely managed to get half way through before giving up on it.

This was when I was working in a bookshop and I had a proof copy (one of many I used to take home) and was really surprised that when it was published it was so well received and went on to win the Booker.

I literally only just started it. I'll let you know after a couple of chapters but I'm already wondering if I'll have the patience to finish it.

^ Why are the Brits so invested in literature, even if the particular example ends up on the dull end of the scale?

I'm so jealous.

I mean, aren't the Booker Prizes televised, and not just on some obscure cable station? That would never ever in a million years happen here in the US.

I get the feeling that even yobs pick up a book now and then.

Am I wrong about all this? Tell me before I pack my bags and move away from this cultural cesspool.

Yes the Booker prize is televised on the BBC. It's one of the benefits of public service broadcasting. The BBC is required to produce a certain amount of output that is "intended for the public benefit rather than for purely commercial concerns." And being funded by the public it's able to show things like the Booker Prize (and the Turner Prize etc) because commercial concerns are not so important.

On the other hand it also makes utter shite like Top Gear.

the thing of reading
as i seen that newspapers with more broader and intelligent
report on the news
doesn't sell large numbers

to connect that with bookreading
is not the same

fills in another interest

Ok, so I picked up Infernal Devices on my Kindle and I have to say it's not a very compelling read thus far. Over half way through and still waiting for the story to start. not a good sign!

Nice choice. Are you a fan of the beats in general, or just Burroughs?

well, just the beats in general. still can't figure out who's my fav. Burroughs or Kerouac. i know it's typical but i still enjoy "On the Road" and "The Dharma Bums" the most. as far as Burroughs goes, i've read more books by him than any other beat writer, but wouldn't say he's my favorite.

have you read "Visions of Cody" by Kerouac? now that's a hard read. he goes on and on without any paragraphs(typical Kerouac high on benzedrine). still haven't finished that book yet.

the last couple of chapters in "On the Road" where they go to mexico is some of my favorite writings. the Desolation Peak chapters in the "Dharma Bums" is beautifully written too. i just read those over and over sometimes.

our library doesn't carry Burroughs, so i have to go to the local college library to find him.

I am a big beat fan and have been since my ninth grade lit teacher read excerpts of HOWL in class (kind of a risky move, really). I've read everything I've been able to get my hands on. Ginsberg has always been my favorite, but I'm with you on Dharma Bums and OTR.

Have you read Go by John Clellon Holmes? If not, you should check it out.

Oyasumi Punpun. A story of a certain guy's life and it starts off when he's young like First grade or somethin' and progresses. 110 Chapters in, he is now 20 years old. Basically fell in love and never really fell out and the person keeps coming in and out of his life.


Yeah...depression and life happens and shit, I'm really hooked. Inio Asano's manga's are not goofy(not really) or anything but just have the sad, happy, funny, and angry parts of life. Every release of his has actually made me feel. I acutally get a bit depressed after reading a voume of this specific manga.
