    Lol at a self-proclaimed troll being outraged at being banned from a forum.

    Sounds to me like you deliberately used a double entendre and got caught.

    Yes.  I have read The Trial and The Castle, including portions of the latter in German (smug). 

    I have to be honest, I typically despise experimental writing-reading Joyce and Woolf for university this semester nearly put me on the bottle-but I do make an exception for Kafka.  His writing style is really unsettling, but I felt that it was more of the "mess with the reader's mind" sort (A Clockwork Orange) than the "look at how different and artistic I am" vibe I sensed reading Woolf or Joyce.

    Mind you, I have heard from a few individuals that his short stories/novellas represent his best work.  I figured I would read a few of them this summer, and there isn't really a better start to tuck in than The Metamorphosis.

    Speaking of the summer, I am trying to sketch out an idea of the reading I'll do.  Name me 3 books that I have to read before I die.

    I've read the Trial and his two short stories The Metamorphosis and In The Penal Colony. I remember asking Glen a while back about how hard The Metamorphosis would be to read in German because I've read online that's best read in it's native tongue to get the full experience. Since I know zero German I never managed it but it was still excellent in English.

    I've got Amerika lying around somewhere but I've not touched it yet.

    Have you ever read anything else by the guy that wrote American Psycho?

    Eurgh, I really don't like the quote formatting on this website.

    Really? Impressive.

    I recently read The Trial on the advice of a tutor at University, as it relates to Jurisprudence. I definitely agree with your assessment: the novel definitely leaves you feeling more aware than it does in awe by the writer. That is a fine trait to possess.

    I'm not the best person to be asking that sort of question to. I think me with books is pretty similar to you with movies; beyond the well known I tend to gravitate to what has been advised by those with similar tastes. For instance The Plague and The Stranger probably make my top five, and I only know of them through Keyser and Danyuul. I'm sure you've read it too, but Don Quixote is great fun.

    I've skimmed through The Informers but I don't think I liked it much. A pretty small sample size here, but his novels seem very self aware and end quite messily. I really did enjoy American Psycho, but I feel like that was only heightened by my love for Bale's best performance ever.

    I suppose you don't see as much when you only confine yourself to reading the Beano.

    Fuck, it's a BMW too. Every kid knows that BMW stands for Black Man's Willy, and you've got a number plate with COC in it.

    Why do you need a private number plate with your date of birth anyway? Are you likely to forget it?

    It makes it personal, numbnuts. That's the point of a private plate Laughing The fact it resembles my name as a whole, and also has my date of birth in it, not many people are that lucky (I would have settled for one that just resembled my name, but stumbled across this one). Private plates are actually pretty fucking hard to get right, providing you don't wanna be spending several grand on it.

    I know what private number a plates are for, it's to spot who's a dickhead without having to speak to them first.

    Genuinely wondering. What triggered it? Your "dickhead" remark is very ironic considering the only one being a dickhead here is you.

    Was that one expensive? It's surprisingly clear in it's meaning compared to some private plates I've seen.

    No, I got lucky, it was only £250. The previous ones I was looking at, like SC07 OTT were several grand. To be fair, to people who don't know my Birthday, it's probably a pretty average private plate, but I'll take it.
