Actually by calling you facetious, he was defending you, assuming that you knew that it was John Lennon who was murdered by the nut inspired by Catcher in the Rye, and were just being silly. I have the feeling he won't make that little mistake again.

Lol. Oh. Ditz Mode. Sorry, I am going to keep saying sorry. I am being defensive, don't know why. Oy Vay! Anyways. I still think Catcher in the Rye is a great book. I think people would understand the book better if they read Comin' Thro' the Rye by Robert Burns.

it's called 'paranoia'... everybody in the universe has that :grin: ;)

back to topic, I haven't read this one yet, but I hope to do so in the nearer future:

"Who am I and if yes, how many?" a philosophical journey by Richard David Precht

it's supposed to be a well written beginners guide to the Kant-ian philosophical questions (What can I know? What ought I do? What may I hope?) by also combining them with biology, neurology, psychology etc

:)

If you are looking for short stories I would recommend theses authors: Grimm Brothers, Joseph Conrad, Ernest Hemingway, J.D. Salinger, ALbert Camus, Mc Knight Malmar, Flannery O' Connor, and John Cheever.

From what I recall, Albert Camus did not write short stories. He wrote novels, some plays, and a collection of essays. You might be thinkin' of J.P. Sartre :beatnik:

Has anyone here ever read George R. R. Martin? A Game of Thrones, A Feast For Crows, etc.?

And if not, then what's wrong with you people???? These are the books that I recommend most highly of any books/authors I have ever read. And there have been a lot. :beatnik:

cool! Be sure and get the first in the series. I believe the first one is "A Clash of Kings." I've read the series twice now, and am anxiously awaiting the final addition...

Actually a friend of mine talked to me about George R.R. Martin some days ago, she said she was reading a novel by him. I don´t like this kind of books but she said I would like this one, it seems it´s a serie of novels and she will lend me the book next month.

Now I think it must be in Spanish because she doesn´t speak English... :P

Good... :) but I don´t know what tale you mean... wasn´t there a Lieutenant Picard?

My favorite short stories writer is Roald Dahl. "Genesis and Catastrophe"... :P :P

And another tale about a man who found an old chest of drawers in a farm... some antique... maybe "Collector´s Item"?
