I am not an avid reader of books, but I can suggest a couple I liked.>The girl with all the gifts>The devils teardrop>Mr. Mercedes
Here's a personal favorite of mine.
Oi cunt! I assume you have read The Hobbit and The Lord of The Rings. If you haven't wtf. Read the Silmarillion pleb.
i've been reading atlas shrugged, didn't think i'd make it but it's really good
actual spoiler ahead:kinda wish john galt's speech near the end was shorter. every time i think its gonna wrap it up it goes on another 20 pages
Why Civilizations Self Destruct.
Hell yeah I've read those books, they were fucking gold!
Also ATTENTION EVERYONE: GREAT EXPECTATIONS IS SHIT>>1329
It's because the civilizations forget what made them great, and start taking their greatness for granted, so they start assuming everyone can be great and cancer people who kill great societies and create shit ones are worth listening to when they say "Your society should change to make me happier".
Multiculti societies fail. Either the foreign influence spreads to make a group have less in common, or the foreign influence solidifies in a little cliquish circle of foreignfaggotry.
Ayn Rand made the brilliant (from a marketing standpoint) decision to write her philosophy books as intricate fables of what she was trying to get across. Arguably, even publishing the books is an expression of her philosophy. The advantage is that her ideas are some of the most easily digestible out there. The disadvantage is that, because of this, her philosophy is frequently held up by people who can't read anyone else because it's too complicated, and her ideas aren't really that great.
It's a good starting point, though. It goes from Heinlein to Rand to real philosophers, if you want to go the libertarian route but can't read philosophy.
The Prince by Machiavelli
Essential for understanding politics and statecraft.
Large book, easy read, pretty funny, a classic.
this is Peter Zeihan's Accidental Superpower. it's an easy read and gives you a good insight into how the world is ordered and how that's going away.
he's a glow nigger analyst and overly optimistic about America's future but it's definitely a learning experience and a bit uplifting if you're an American who's taken one too many black pills.
I recently read A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court by Mark Twain which I thought was pretty good. It is a fictional comedy about a 19th century engineer who gets transported to 6th century England where he narrowly escapes execution by passing himself of as a great wizard and thereby securing a place in the kings court. He then uses his modern day knowledge to secretly educate and improve the life of the common people while at the same time undermining the authority of the church and nobility whom he dislikes.
It was written in 1889 so the english is pretty hard to understand at times but I enjoyed it nonetheless. I read it in epub format using an app on my phone so I tried converting it into a pdf to be able to post it here but it seems I messed up the image size and page numbering. Sorry.
Hope anyone who sees this thread likes it.
Recently I read Captain Blood by Rafael Sabatini and I am currently reading the Red Nails story from the Conan series. Reading stuff like this really shows what modern writing is missing.
Also gotta love some of the lines in these Conan stories
It's hard to believe that Howard wrote those stories for one and a half cents a word for magazines printed on the cheapest, roughest pulp paper, which used his stories as spacers between ads for magnetic hernia cure trusses, isn't it?
Howard died very young, too. He was only thirty years old when he blew his brains out in a fit of melancholy over the death of a relative.
