Ever had that moment where you finish whatever book you were reading, feel your brain racing, your eyes perhaps twitching, and finally can't help but say aloud:
"What the heck did I just read...?"

I just finished Kurt Vonnegut's Breakfast of Champions and though I really like Vonnegut's style and enjoyed the book, I couldn't help but wonder how in the world he wrote it.

I suppose for the sake of the thread it doesn't have to be a book per say, maybe a movie you've seen or something similar. So anyway, share your own disturbed moments.

I doubt many in the pit know what a book is, or have finished one..



You are aware there's a huge literature thread in the pit....right?

This is terrible advice. Even worse than the useless dry, sarcastic comment I made.

I'm too old for the Jim Morrison look now. When I was gigging I had a fine arse.

^^^I do, but by knowing the pit, I still stand by my statement. Not saying that some of us don't read, I do, but a large percentile doesn't.

OT: Every Lovecraft story does that to me.

Catcher in the Rye... not because it was good, because it sucked... and nothing happened..
Quote by DaFizzle
Periods are only a myth made up by woman to have more things to cry about, its the same with birth pains. Because i imagine its like having a shite and i quite enjoy turding.

Smoke and Mirrors did that to me. It was the first time I'd read anything by Gaiman

I know the feeling. For me it follows with a sense of achievement, because in my head I am still the guy who killed vampires and offed myself with cyanide. Then I blink and go do a shit.

House of leaves

/thread

(ps: Only Revolutions sucks- danielewski sucks outside of house of leaves.)

House of leaves isn't that much of a crazy book or anything. I can't stand the people who finish reading it and are like "OMG! THAT WAS SO CRAZY! I MEAN SOME FREAKY SHIT HAPPENENENEND IN THAT BOOK!"
I've read, I liked it. It wasn't that weird of a book and I admired the book for the dramatic aspects and such.
I know you didn't say it was crazy or anything but meh.
I've never read a book that's made me have this moment.
They made me do push ups in drag

I'm gonna have a really hard time if we're both cannibals and racists.

Don't dress as a whore, he'll thump you.

I'm a firework, primed to go off

I was really enjoying Neil Pearts "traveling music" and read almost all of it in the space of a few days, and really just said "wait what?"
I had to re-read it.
