I've already taken a literary criticism class and had a crash course in all the major lenses. I've just slept since then.

That would fit into this thread or the Philosophy one which needs more activity anyway.

I was thinking that but then I thought that thread was mostly concerned with classical philosophy but I've never been in there so I dunno

The Dead - Joyce
Metamorphosis - Kafka
Candide - Voltaire
The Crying of Lot 49 - Pynchon
EDIT: The Stranger - Camus <- pretty much a novella. You can read it in one sitting.

Cheers, lads.

I've already read The Stranger and Candide, but I'll definitely check out those other suggestions. I've been meaning to read something by Kafka for a while.

You should pick up one of those collections of his short stories and read both metamorphosis and the penal colony and all the great shorter pieces.

Hey, yesterday I finished reading Utopia by More and loved it. Writing style and the way he conveys his message was great.

Now I want to read something that will show me opposite of what More is talking about. A book that speaks of Capitalism and why it is beautiful. Not something that targets communism but something tells me why capitalism is good. In a friendly way similar to More's Utopia.

Any suggestions?

^ Atlas Shrugged is pretty much the ultimate book on that.

it's good cos it enabled a better standard of living for tons of peeps. Read The Dispossessed: An Ambiguous Utopia which gives a critique of capitalism while at the same time showing the weaknesses within socialist structures.

I'll take a look at that one.

Dread I'm kinda scared of picking up Atlas Shrugged too many people say that they couldnt even get to 200 pages of it. I rarely get bored of reading stuff like that but dont know still lacking some balls I guess :p
