Stoned book reviews *updated

Scarlet Letter, I remember seething in class reading this. I was like what the fuck kind of shit is that crap.

Steinbeck, no one on this good green earth needs to read two whole pages dedicated to a simple tree description. No one! Unless you’re a botanist and that’s your porn thing.

Hemingway, same for your shark adventure, did you copy and paste those pages by accident because it felt never-ending. Maybe some fisherman’s wet dream but hard pass.

Moby Dick, okay the story wasn’t bad but seriously…..that many pages. Few books merit that many. Hugo, Phantom, and such but I really saw a bit of bloat on some of those fishing scenes. Maybe that’s the non fisher in me but when I was trying to get by doing as little homework as I could all that typeface wasn’t doing me any favors.

*1984, I read it as an adult. It shook me profoundly, but doesn’t it feel very much like what is actually going on in China, except the people there are a bit smarter than the populace in the book. At the time I read it 15 years aho it already seemed plausible and probable but now I feel it actually is closer to reality than ever, if not full blown there.

Jane Austin, I’ve never been so turned on by Victorian age white people. Romance in “proper” English people. (Like I know what I’m talking about.)

But if we mention English it reminds me of leather and crops and we can’t not mention Anne Rice’s sex trilogy. Hubba hubba. Way before I knew what porn was there was this ode to BDSM fun. My first glimpse into it and boy did it set the bar too high. Lol But little did I know how far I would one day get, with room for even more growth. πŸ˜‰

I have always enjoyed reading and writing. Maybe because I have always been on the quiet and reclusive side; which most people may not guess at first glance or if seeing me in a social setting, especially around people I am comfortable with but it’s also not something I have an issue with. I need solitude to recharge. Writing gives me the peace and time to renew myself...here that is offered to you for your enjoyment and pleasure as well. I hope. Lol

  1. I remember reading “Flowers in the Attic” and, wow – it was sneakily pornographic and, um, I actually liked the book. We were made to read the classics in school and, my god, they were more boring than they were interesting and informative – I remember reading “War and Peace” and it was, by far, the most boring book I’ve ever read.

    Books about the Victorian age were a matter of “history being written by the victor;” you rarely read any books about this crucial period in human history that told it like it really was and, well, let me say that if you think people are freaky today, they had nothing on those folks who lived in the Victorian age. Not saying Jane Austin isn’t a good writer but the Victorian age wasn’t as romantic as she liked to depict – looks good on paper, though.

    I got more out of reading “Charlotte’s Web” than I did any of the classics; “Moby Dick” was, in fact, an excellent lesson in obsession, as was “Don Quixote” which, I guess, is why they made us read such things. One of the most powerful books I’ve ever read was Irving Wallace’s “The Man” which, sadly, is no longer in print; it was about a Black man who wound up being President of the United States thanks to the presidential succession act.

    He was the lowly President Pro Tem of the Senate… and everyone above him got killed in a freak accident… and the shitstorm that followed has been etched in my mind forever.

    I can’t, right now, remember the book about feudal Japan and the movie based on that book starring Richard Chamberlain but, holy shit, was that one hell of a book! The Japanese of that period were some sexually depraved motherfuckers but that kinda got lost in the story of how a non-Japanese man became quite Japanese.

    1. Shogun?

      The Man? You have to wonder why some really good books aren’t in print anymore. There was an astrology book I picked up at a garage sale. Turns out it was out of print and worth $200 used price because people “in the know” thought the book to be excellent and worth the steep price. Sold it. But things like that always leave me puzzled.

      1. Shogun! That’s the book I was talking about – thanks! I had found a copy of “The Man” a few years ago, paid a pretty penny for it – and gave it to my mother who recommended that I read the book in the first place; well, I gave it to her after I read it again (wink, wink).

        Why such books go out of print is beyond me; I can find a copy of Homer’s works easily enough… but I’d have to search high and low for another copy of “The Man” and other such books.

      2. Do’no. Gotta love Amazon though. That’s how I ever first can’t upon it over 12 years ago. Looking for books. It’s super cheap there. I’ll have to out it on my must read list. It’s only like 50 books deep right now. 😬πŸ€ͺ

      3. I hate Bezos. I dislike the way the company operates and treats it’s employees. I’ve met some personally and they have nothing good to say. So I’ve stopped giving them as much business as I used to but it is very convenient. Unfortunately
