some posts do slip thru the cracks first time around you know

and there's also that new generation of netphorians (ovary) who may have missed it for other reasons entirely!

Fun! Nice! Life! Youths! Beautiful!
I'm all for it

are you quoting from "fuckin in the bushes" off the seminal oasis album, "standing on the shoulder (sic) of giants"?

My Book Review
......of
To the Lighthouse
by Virginia Woolf


if your being entertained by a novel requires an active and thrilling plot, this is probably not the best choice for you

on a macro level, this to me read as a study on the nature of thought, explored through a minor cast of characters — its turbulent, inexplicable manner, how easily it can be lulled into reverie or lured down infinite pathways, its inexorable link to memory and sensation, its absolute solitude, and so on.

most writing on the book tends to i n c l u d e the phrase "stream of consciousness." well, yeah. most of the story, or “content” (perhaps a better word) consists of the characters’ immense and endlessly cascading inner worlds. setting, personalities, and relationships are all developed through our witnessing of interiority, as it pounces from one character’s mind to the next.

my favorite bit was the middle and shortest of the three sections "time passes," wherein woolf departs from the day-to-day narrative and veers into a kind of time-warpy and at times hypothetical realm full of poignant, untethered lyricism (exploited to its fullest in her later novel, The Waves, one of my favorite books of all time).

SO JUST TO SUM UP: slow and even dull in its plotline, but rich and pretty frikkin astounding in its exploration of the nature of our minds, life, art, human relations, memory, time, all as pondered through the consciousness of a few fictional people.

oh yeah and also some stuff about power dynamics between the sexes

"How come they call you Billy instead of William?"
"Business reasons," said Billy. That was true. His father-in-law, who owned the Ilium School of Optometry, who had set Billy up in practice, was a genius in his field. He told Billy to encourage people to call him Billy—because it would stick in their memories. It would also make him seem slightly magical, since there weren't any other grown Billys around. It also compelled people to think of him as a friend right away.

the point of faulkner isnt to be enjoyable, its to make you be like “oh fuck, America!” you should slog through absalom absalom or go down moses until it grabs you by the neck and drags you into the black abyss.

ps fuck ayn rand haters, who are typically either woke posers or havent read ayn rand
Ayn Rand's greatest works are only valuable as literature in that they provide perspective and insight into a very specific time in the world. Beyond that they're sorely lacking any literary value, and they're very poorly written. She's not a great writer. She rightfully earned her fame by saying things women weren't saying, which is great. But otherwise she's just Ann Coulter an era sooner.

I'm reading James Baldwin's first book, Go Tell It On the Mountain.

It's definitely very interesting reading a book that has a few parallels to your own life - attraction to the same gender, hardcore religious environs while resenting the faithful etc.
