Also siddhartha by hesse, also kino. I didn't like steppenwolf as much

>> No.22547689

Interesting, I tried Steppenwolf when I ran a book club a while back and we all got majorly filtered by it. It really turned me off Hesse, especially since he said that Steppenwolf was one of his favorites. I'll try out Siddartha.
I have a haltf-mexican white nationalist trad christian friend who can be a real headache sometimes. He's one of my only friends that reads books and he has a huge hard-on for PKD. I've been meaning to get into him, to try him out, read and weep, skim and tear, flip and rip, absorb and digest all his works. I've heard great things about VALIS

I like it but I stopped reading around the three powers, I should continue to read it. I remember text roleplaying this on wetpaint back in the late 2000s/early 2010s(really mid 2000s late 2000s was when that stuff was at its peak), unfortunately since most of the fans are female its overrun with gender/tranny nonsense fanwise. I like it better than redwall, in ways it's more violent. I still feel bad for Shadowclan though, they just seem very weak/shit and the whole thunderclan is the savior for all the clans stuff gets tiring. I think they could've fleshed out the differences of the clans especially when cats like Stormfur and Greystripe, Tawnypelt join another clan, and made the other clans have more varying dominance(other than just Thunderclan), I get that in Into the Wild and in the following series under Firestar,Thunderclan would probably be at its peak but I think it would be interesting if we see the negatives of Thunderclan and its downfall and the rise of another clan. I never did read the comics or the super editions, I remember when it was a big deal of are they squirrelflight's kits? or leafpool and crowfeather's? Good times.

Paolo Bacigalupi is my go-to recommendation for authors who do depict systems featuring a subaltern, Paolo is especially concerned with what I call hydraulic dystopias where colonization and subjugation revolve around water availability. He does a great job dealing with dehumanization and investigating human nature in how we interact with and try to conquer scarcity, which makes for darkly fascinating narratives.
