Sapiens By Harari - "Whatever is possible by definition also natural." is such a bs line.

So I'm reading Sapiens by Yuval Noah Harari and came across this above mentioned line accompanied by, "A truly unnatural behaviour, one that goes against the laws of nature simply cannot exist, so it would need no prohibition." Now I'm not the brightest bulb but this whole line of thinking seems off to me. The context here is homosexual relationship, for which ofc i do agree, but there are several acts committed by men for example serial murders, rape, pedophilia, zoophilia which just bcoz do exist simply cannot be termed natural and thus cannot not be subjected to prohibition! I'm not being ..read more

When even mentioning the book "Jaws" Spielberg's film from 1975 (the book was published in 74) will immediately come to mind. But I'm not talking about the film here, oh no, I'm talking about the novel written by Peter Benchley, (who was also involved in the adaptation of it to film) the OG "Jaws. The premise of the novel is pretty much the same as the movie. The beach resort town of Amity comes under siege by ravenous shark. The town's sheriff, a marine biologist and a modern day Ahab. Pretty much the same, save for several things. In the novel there's a lot more going on than what is in the ..read more

Berger laughs. "Listen, what happened this morning was that you let yourself feel some pain. Feeling is not selective, I keep telling you that. You can’t feel pain, you aren't gonna feel anything else, either. And the world is full of pain. Also joy. Evil. Goodness. Horror and love. You name it, it’s there. Sealing yourself off is just going through the motions, get it? That's part of a conversation between Berger, a psychiatrist, and a young man named Conrad who is struggling with depression and trauma. In fact, his whole family is trying to deal with a terrible event that affected them al ..read more

Homoerotic, subversive bible fiction is one of my new favorite micro genres

I’m thinking Him by Geoff Ryan (in which Jesus is born a woman, as a biological clone of Mary but grows into manhood, akin to being transgender) and Dayspring by Anthony Oliveira (told in prose and poetry, chronicling the love between a sexual, young, anarchist Jesus and his historically documented “beloved disciple”) I think it takes such talent to take primary sources and turn them into compelling fiction, which is why historical fiction is one of my favorite genres. I want to praise Oliveira and Ryan’s work specifically because they are doing something weird and wonderful in their craft. I ..read more

I read the hitchhikers guide series 3 years ago and loved it, mainly because I can't remember how many times I've laughed like crazy. I now started Dirk Gently and early on there's a silly joke about a paper clip that has me in tears. I read a lot, and I laugh from Vonnegut, I also remember a couple of laughs on project hail Mary, and of course catch 22, but I think in terms of humor DA is another level for me and until him I never thought you could laugh so much by reading submitted by /u/roygo88 [visit reddit] [comments ..read more
