BTT: People Are Strange
What’s the oddest book you’ve ever read? Did you like it? Hate it? Did it make you think?
Oh goodness. I’ve read some pretty strange books! I think that there are books that everyone acknowledges as strange with a purpose, like, oh, anything written by Thomas Pynchon and Kurt Vonnegut, and the there are books that are strange just because they don’t make very much sense, unfortunately without trying. I think that the books that people think are just so strange that I’ve loved, hands down are, largely misunderstood. Here, I will share:
Oh, and yes, I did love these even though they were, by and large, “strange”. I think that, often, “strange”, again, is just misunderstood. I think that, so many times, a writer goes out of his or her way to use allegory or allusion in describing a particular vision or philosophy but decodes said philosophy within fiction and it makes it, altogether, a little “odd”. I obviously love it!
