On Murder Mysteries, Abuse, and Tattoos

Lately, I’ve been looking for books outside the realm of teenage fiction. I’ve read young adult practically all of my life, so I wanted to step out of that comfort zone and try some new genres. Hence, I stumbled upon The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson. What’s intriguing about this novel and its sequels is that they were published posthumously, after Larsson died suddenly in 2004. They then became an international sensation.This book centers around a number of different subjects,…See More

"I actually really like the concept of the Ning, because instead of writing lame essays, we get to write about things that we like, and then share it with our friends. Who are then forced to comment. But even the commenting thing is kinda cool,…"

Imama Khawaja replied to Ben Norys's discussion books nobody cares about
"What a great forum board. I love how enthusiastic you sound about reading, Ben! I think the reason we read many of the books that we do in English is because they have themes that transcend time, and actually CAN be related to by others later. The…"

"Your brain is filled with amazingness Imama. I would put all of my money on Voldemort (pre-Potter of course), seeing that if he dies he would still have 6 more chances of winning."

"Glorious article, Imama! This warmed the cockles of my heart. Personally, I'd pay to watch Dwight Schrute. I know he's not a literary character, but can you imagine the possibilities? I wouldn't put my money on him, though. He might…"

Well-Known Literary Characters Fighting in the Hunger Games

At this point, I think we can assume that we have all read, seen, or at least heard about The Hunger Games. If you didn’t know, it’s a series which revolves around the government throwing teens together in an televised arena and then forces them to fight to the death. But have you ever considered how characters outside of the series would hold up if they were in The Hunger Games? Say we threw in a bunch of classic or well-known literary characters. How would they fare? Who would win?…See More

Imama Khawaja replied to Briana Michaels's discussion What makes a T.V. show good?
"I totally agree that script is extremely important in TV. The script can make or break the entire show. Actually, script is like 90% of TV: the rest is the actor's delivery. "

Imama Khawaja replied to Keith Berger's discussion Modern television vs. oldtime television
"A lot of modern-day TV shows are really stupid, but I don't think we can make a blanket statement that they all suck. Some modern-day TV shows are really well-made. Watching old TV has a whole different feel to it. You can't necessarily…"

Adventures with Chuck Palahniuk

Posted on March 21, 2014 at 12:00am 0 Comments

Hello, my comrades and lovers. So for my last blog post, I wrote about the book Fight Club. Now I’m writing about another title that I mentioned in that post, Choke, by the same author, Chuck Palahniuk. I feel like this book needs a big “Warning: Explicit Content” label on it because it is… something else. The cover even says "CHOKE IS FIGHT CLUB FOR SEX ADDICTS." So please, proceed with caution.…

The First Rule of Fight Club Is...

Posted on March 5, 2014 at 1:00am 1 Comment

You don’t talk about Fight Club. You don’t talk about it, you don’t write about it, you definitely don’t make blog posts about it. Yet here I am writing a blog post about the very book that has inspired so many real-life "fight clubs," so much desire in men and women to rage against the machine, designer fashion lines by Versace and Dolce and Gabbana, and even a movie. Yeah, Fight Club is originally a book. Go tell your friends.…
