Looking for books that take place in...
 
I'm looking for some adventurous novels that take place in the United States. English books.

I thought it would be easy to find some titles, but I have been searching for two hours now to no avail.

Please help an intellectual nigga out.

JASPER 07-05-2008 05:45 PM

Come on, won't none of you illiterate knuckleheads help me out?

VZA 07-05-2008 06:04 PM

What do you mean by adventure? Like indiana jones kinda thing? If so then try Ordinary Heroes, One Damn Thing After Another, and Indiana Jones(there's books of it).

JASPER 07-05-2008 06:11 PM

By adventurous I mean books that aren't about people sitting at home all day. Books with action. No psychological drama bullshit. I've read Mosquito Coast by Paul Theroux and it just made me want to to read more English books.

Try Catcher in the Rye.

Catch 22, although not set in America, is an American novel, and is very good.

JASPER 07-05-2008 07:12 PM

I thought it took place in NYC. Anyway, I guess I'll put it on my list.

Thanks for your suggestion.

Forget books about America, Scotland is where it's at......

...read Trainspotting and the sequel Porno.

JASPER 07-05-2008 07:23 PM

I've already been to Scotland. Matter of fact, I lived there for a few months. Now I'm planning on moving to America, specifically the USA and I'm trying to get more familiar with their culture and way things go over there.

Lived anywhere else?

You gonna work in America? Isn't a bitch to go there for more than a holiday?

JASPER 07-05-2008 07:37 PM

I lived in Belgium too, but that's practically in the Netherlands. You see, I need to get out of this god forsaken shithole country for various reasons and I only speak Dutch and English. Plus I know someone in America who can help me settle there and probably get me a job as well.

So it's important that I brush up on my English skills and get myself educated on the states.

study skampoes posts and move to 'da hollow side of da port', you'll be fine.

JASPER 07-05-2008 07:51 PM

I studied a bunch of Skampoes posts before and it made me want to inject lard straight into my brain and shit out bottles of maple syrup. Not my cup of tea.

TheWolf 07-05-2008 07:53 PM

That just so happens to be the number 1 recreational activity in 'da hollow side'. Book a flight.

JASPER 07-05-2008 07:57 PM

There's nothing hollow about Skampoe. That's for sure. No thanks, I'll be in the woods of Oregon enjoying the beautiful surroundings and American culture.

(0:19:55) TheAsylumite: my mom paid me to read that book a long time ago. I tried and it was too fucking bad to even get through the first chapter. so I googled the plot details and told them to her and she believed I read it and gave me the money

(0:21:16) Melvin Sauceman:i was curious if it ever got better
(0:21:20) TheAsylumite: it doesn't
(0:21:23) TheAsylumite: it only gets worse
(0:21:23) Melvin Sauceman:and read another three pages and it made me angry
(0:21:26) TheAsylumite: stop reading now for your own good
(0:21:36) Melvin Sauceman:thanks for you advice again
(0:21:37) TheAsylumite: I'd also probably stop talking to the person who recommended it
(0:21:39) TheAsylumite: no problem
