The Devil's Dictionary | Ambrose Bierce
post image

Bierce's Devil's Dictionary is a collection of frequently satirical epigrammatic definitions. Recognition of Bierce's idiosyncratic accomplishments is overdue. He is Twain's sarcastic spiritual cousin.

JazzFeathers 😂👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻I read a few of Bierce short stories a long time ago and l found him fascinating. But yes, it isn't easy to come by his stuff. I read it in a series by a publisher who in the early 1990s published a lot of Weird Tales stories, l suppose because they are in the public domain. But years ago they has some copyright troubles and they're not doing this anymore. 6mo
rohit-sawant Awesome post! I've been meaning to read this! 6mo

Any excuse to post about a favorite book of mine. ♥️

HOHT is the gripping, fast paced account of MLK‘s assassination and James Earl Ray‘s subsequent flight and capture. I was hooked from page 1. #highwaytohell #maymoviemagic

MallenNC This is such a great book! 6mo
rohit-sawant Need to read this one! 6mo
Cinfhen I see I‘ve stacked but I don‘t remember ever seeing this book before!! I‘ll need to look out for it 🤩 6mo

Inferno | Dante

“I am the way into the city of woe,
I am the way into eternal pain,
I am the way to go among the lost.

Justice caused my high architect to move,
Divine omnipotence created me,
The highest wisdom, and the primal love.

Before me there were no created things
But those that last forever - as do I.
Abandon all hope you who enter here.”

A few examples from my husband‘s bizarre, shocking yet fascinating #currentread about medical misfires and malpractices.
Morphine for crying babies, Arsenic to cure fatigue, Tobacco for lung diseases, drilling a hole in the head to cure insanity!
Surely a #highwaytohell for the patients.

Centique Yikes! 6mo

Damned | Chuck Palahniuk
post image

I DNF'd this tale narrated by a 13-year-old girl who ends up in Hell. Interesting idea, but I hated the execution of this #highwaytohell.

@Cinfhen @rohit-sawant

Patchshank I didn't like it much either. I wasn't able to finish it. 6mo
readordierachel @Patchshank I remember liking some early Palahniuk back in the day, but this was just not my cup of tea 6mo
merelybookish I have no desire to read Palahniuk and posts like this remind me why! 😉 6mo

rohit-sawant I haven't read anything by him yet. Love this cover, though! 6mo
Reagan-reads I think Snuff was the last one I finished. Lullaby was so great. 6mo
Cinfhen One Palahnuik was enough for me 🙄 6mo
Cinfhen But good choice for prompt!! 6mo
Reggie Me and you both. This book was the last time I bought a Palahniuk until Fight Club last month. 6mo
gradcat He is very difficult to swallow, but I like a few things he‘s done. I can easily understand why people don‘t like him, though—not everyone‘s cup of tea 🍵! 6mo
readordierachel @merelybookish I used to dig him, but I've changed so much as a reader in the last 2 decades 🙃 6mo
readordierachel @rohit-sawant I do, too! 6mo
readordierachel @Reagan-reads I might have to check that one out someday. Just the premise of Snuff was too much for me 🙈 6mo
readordierachel @Cinfhen Funny enough I've never read Fight Club, but I don't think I want to tbh... 6mo
readordierachel @Reggie It's just so unsavory, and not in a fun way! 6mo
readordierachel @gradcat Yes, I can totally see (and respect) that there is an audience for his work. Just not me anymore, I guess! Although I remember liking Survivor and Invisible Monsters way back in the day. 6mo
ephemeralwaltz I DNF'd this too!!! 5mo

#MayMovieMagic Although they were looking for a bit of heaven in Alaska, in many ways Ernt's road trip to a better life became a #HighwayToHell for Cora and Lani.

Geeklet This was such a ridiculously good book. I don‘t even like this genre and I really loved this book. Kinda wish I wouldn‘t have loaned it to a friend who will never return it. 😕 6mo
Bookwormjillk Just started this. Can‘t wait to sneak away tonight and read it. 6mo
marleed My bookclub had such classy take aways from this book. Me: I‘m suspicious of people who decorate with dead animals. I‘m still laughing at that line. (edited) 6mo
