The Book Club For Really Smart People Club.

First of all: No, you can't join. You're stupid and you like shit books. Go away.

OK, now I shall begin. Only smart people who like good books, and can read good books too, are welcome to join. This probably excludes most of the frequent posters in this forum as I see threads such as 'Should Delta Quest become a piece of shit?' are enduringly popular...

This place isn't for the likes of you. Good bye, you f*ck-heads.

Anyway, for the rest of us, we may discuss and recommend good books that we have read with our eyes, or finger-tips - see, we're not racist here. Also, please feel free to post some nice-nice quotes from books you like. What I mean is what I mean is what I mean is that dontcha find that sometimes when you are reading a good book, you sometimes read a good quote within that good book? If you do, then you'll know that what I mean is what I means is what I mean is that dontcha find that sometimes when you are reading a good book, you sometimes read a good quote within that good book? If you do...Nah, you do it.

OK...Nice day. Here are some of my most special really-good-yes favourite authors who are currently authoring, ie. They are not dead.

Charles Dickins
Dave Eggers - AHWOSG is amazing, but YSKOV really tickled my funny bone.
Jonathan Safran Foer - Oh, boy. Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close is fantabulouso.
David Mitchell - Every mother-f*cking book he's written has been mother-f*cking incredible.
James Joyce
Tom Robbins - not all the time, but sometimes gold.

Eh, I can't think of any others at the moment. I would like to give a special mention to Stephen King of Stephen King-fame...Now, I wouldn't usually delve in such waters, but I'm currently on Book VI of The Dark Tower series, and I must say I pretty much love it. After bowing down to LOTR when I was a kid, I've steered clear of fantasy because I couldn't see how it could be matched - and I'm not saying The Dark Tower series does match it - but these books are fun.

Here's a quote from the book that I read (with my eyes) today:

"When the King comes and the Tower falls, all such pretty things as yours will be broken. Then there will be darkness and nothing but the howl of the Discordia and the cries of the can toi."

Nice, isn't it? Isn't it not nice, isn't it not?

Well, there we are and isn't it all there and we there are?

Good. Add me to your life.

But Floo, lol, Charles Dickens is dead, lol. What's a James choice though?

Anywho's...whose...whos...whobs...I am currently reading The Grapes of Wrath, them Americanos talk funny, it makes it totally complicated to like understand what they are saying..since they talk so funny, them Americanos I mean. Quite excellent...I also read some things in it I would like to quote if I wouldn't forget what and where and why it was a page later. Before that I mostly read Science Fiction. And 1984 which one would not necessarily say to be SF...which is excellent anyways. I like books. I sometimes smell books. But you can't know what's written in a book from the smell *sad smilie*.

Although, I already added you to my life. I wish I would find the block button already.

Everybody should read One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovitch. You'll be a better person for it if you do. You should also read The Diary of a Madman and and The Government Inspector, by Gogol.

And, since you went ahead and suggested a fantasy novel, I'll go ahead and suggest a mystery: The Read Widow Murders, by Carter Dickson/John Dickson Carr, one of the great writers of the golden age period.

(Countdown until somebody recommends a DragonLance book: 10...9...8...)

You know what I do, Mr. Bardock? No? OK, I'll tell you: when I read a quote that I like I always fold the bottom of the page. Did you get that? I fold the bottom of the page...Then I know where the quote I like isn't not, ie. All the unfolded pages. As for the book, I haven't read it. I do love 'On The Road', though. Which is also an American novel.

Wasnít it me who said that nothing goodís gonna last forever? And wasnít it me who said letís just be glad for the time together? It mustíve been hard to tell me that youíve given all you had to give. I can understand youíre feeling that way everybodyís got their life to live...Well, I can say goodbye in the cold morning light, but I canít watch love die in the warmth of the night. If Iíve got to be strong donít you know I need to have tonight when youíre gone? Till you go I need to lie here and think about the last time that youíll touch me in the morning.

I've been meaning to get into some Ballard, and my daddy likes Welsh. I read 'Glamorama', but the person who was the first-person narrator made me want to gauge my eyes out. I guess that's the point of it, though. Have you been to 'Lunar Park'?

Some nice recommendations there, Gregory...if that is your real name...I'm not much of a mystery fan, but I'll give it a dig.

I don't know what a 'DragonLance book' is, but I'm guessing it's some sort of sick and twisted dragon-related hardcore porn book with lots of thrusting, and the like...If so, then it sounds hot. Really hot.

Well, right now I'm reading 1984, and I absolutely adore it.
But my favorite book ever is White Fang, by Jack London. I've read it nine times at least. But my favorite part of it is the very first paragraph, it's what made me bring it home when i was skimming through books at the library and I had never heard of Jack London:

"Dark spruce forest frowned on either side the frozen waterway. The trees had been stripped by a recent wind of their white covering of frost, and they seemed to lean toward each other, black and ominous, in the fading light. A vast silence reigned over the land. The land itself was a desolation, lifeless, without movement, so lone and cold that the spirit of it was not even that of sadness. There was a hint in it of laughter, but of a laughter more terrible than any sadness - a laughter that was mirthless as the smile of the Sphinx, a laughter cold as the frost and partaking of the grimness of infallibility. It was the masterful and incommunicable wisdom of eternity laughing at the futility of life and the effort of life. It was the Wild, the savage, frozenhearted Northland Wild."

Haha, that must have been the best portrait of a Dubliner I've ever seen. Your creativity blooms today, doesn't it?


I do not destroy my books. I find it disrespectful to the author. But hey, whatever sick disgusting thing floats your pants. Haha, I know, I promised not to tell, but dude...haha, you are 27.

Yes, it left me feeling not very happy....I wish I'd control the present. I also like Rage Against The Machine.

Yes, apparently you just said that. Why? And gross. Touching you in the morning. When you are smelly and ewwy.

Oh, boy. You really are waking up The Dead, aren't you Sister? That's all good because I've seen more than your Molly Malone.

Destroy books with lazer rays from your eyes. Do what they were born to do! I COMMANDO IT! WITHOUT UNDERWEAR!

I like, and I like to, but you must remember it's all Killing In The Name.

When there's dew in my eyes, it is only tears from the Sun as the Moon folds and the daylight laughs. I laugh with it. Them. You. We are here, and we are all together. See how they run, like fools from a gun, see how they cry...They're crying.

Oj noj and The Eternal Void.

You won, you won. I am a cultural wreck. A yahoo. An American.

Like in that book. The one with the stuff in it. And then whoosh..and lots of colours.

Dude, you have a bullet in your head. The people of the sun are not renegades of funk.

I still don't quote any books, do I?

Re: The Book Club For Really Smart People Club.

A novel I always recommend is The Watchmen, it's arguably the greatest novel of all time.

Yeah, that's a phantastic graphic novel. I love that silent scene [SPOILER - highlight to read]: with the clocks in the background just after Egypt-dude has told them he completed his plan 35 minutes ago.

It's a jaw-dropper, yo.

Yeah, the Egypt dude is pretty cool. My favourite is the strange black and white face dude though.
