How about a literature thread? Which books do you consider required reading? Doesn't have to be talking animals themed. But who doesn't love talking animals?

I've read the books in the post images except Redwall, but I watched the cartoon. I liked the cartoon, but it gave me the impression the book series is more suited toward a younger audience. It's highly rated, so maybe I'll read it eventually.

Watership Down is my favorite of these. It's sorta like Lord of the Rings but with rabbits. The rabbits have their own mythology and language (lapine) and the book is highly quotable. The original film based on the book is excellent too, but they leave out important characters like Blackavar. The film is kinda hardcore.

Renard the Fox is probably the least suitable for children. It's all poetry following the misdeeds (including sexual) of the eponymous anthro red fox. He's an amoral trickster whose exploits include raping a wolf and wiping his ass with the king's flag and throwing it at him. Fun stuff.

Mrs. Frisby and the rats of NIHM is about, well, basically the Don Bluth film, but without the magic. They changed her name to "Brisby" in the film for stupid trademark reasons (blame Wham-O). Anyway, there are super intelligent rats who have harnessed the power of electricity, but they see tapping humans' electric power grid as stealing and wish to generate their own. Mrs. Frisby goes to them for help moving her home, so her son Timothy, who's sick with pneumonia, doesn't get plowed by the farmer. She was married to one of these super intelligent rats (Jonathan), who died. So interspecies, because Mrs. Frisby is a field mouse. I read this for school way back in elementary school, so I forgot all the details. But I remember generally liking it. The films based on this book and Watership Down are both classics.

>She was married to one of these super intelligent rats (Jonathan), who died. So interspecies
Whoops. Jonathan was actually a mouse too. He and Mr. Ages were the only mice to escape the NIMH lab. Told you I forgot most of the details.

This is a good book from what I remember. Had to read it in high school. There was a scene from Johnny Bravo where he loses his shit and starts chanting, "Four feet good! Two feet bad!" I couldn't find it on youtube. Anyway it's a reference to Animal Farm I didn't get as a kid.


I'll get around to reading 1984 eventually. I chose to read Brave New World instead recently, and I need to take a break before picking up another dystopian novel.

Those look interesting.

So it's an antro/sci-fi/detective series? Seems legit.

Cool. Thanks for those.

I blame Redwall for becoming a furry. It was a nice series of children's novels, and I hope he died happy never knowing what he had done to so many unsuspecting children. Anyone know what the best translation of the Renard stories is?

You might enjoy The Last and First Men and Stapledon's other novels.

Someone on here recommended the Patricia Terry translation I linked in the OP. I haven't read any other translations, but Terry is able to make everything rhyme in English. Which is pretty impressive imo. Pic related.

The park where I go hiking has these children's books with their pages split apart and made into signs. Called StoryWalk. Neat idea. They even had the Kissing Hand book that was posted here.

this is going to sound like stupid brony bs, but fallout equestria is actually a really good read if you're into that. It has a sick sense of humor that I just never saw anywhere else.

IMO FOE:Horizons is better, but it really leans on the first book for a lot of basic world building.

I listen to a lot of audio books and old timey radio show like things when im playing video games, heres a link to a surprisingly good recording of an audio book of fallout equestria, if you want to give it a quick listen while you're doing other stuff.

this is also a really good series. The third one that follows the story of "the Copper" is probably my favorite, but all the books in the series are pretty good.

The Wraethu series is good too, but the whole hermaphrodite thing turns a lot of normies off. There are like maybe 3 sex scenes in the entire series, and they're just graphic enough to kinda paint the picture of how the Wraethu work, and not really long enough to be erotic… but you read the description and see "hermaphrodite" and immediately think the series is erotic or something.

Theres also wheel of time, hands down the best fantasy series I've ever read, but its kinda old hat now, so its like lord of the rings, by now if you were interested in reading it, you probably have. Its honestly worth reading just for the scene where the psychotic male wizards show up and just break the bitchy women wizards' whole world view "kneel or be knelt."

another really good one if you're into Lit-RPG novels, Way of the Shaman. The main character is a total mary sue, but for what it is, its probably one of if not the best in the genere.

Iron Druid is pretty good too, if just for the magical talking dog. Oberon is the best irish wolfhound. Plus theres a straight up gangster bar shoot out with magical jewish rabies and buddy jesus.

basically the pirate bay of audiobooks, I've never ran into a single honeypot torrent, its proved pretty safe.

Just putting it out there in case you want to listen to some books and not waste amazon credits on obscure stuff with audiable.

52c86868 No.3629027

if you're just bored and want to listen to some background noise. "The Great Lectures" series is great to just listen to while doing mindless labor. I learned so much more than I ever wanted about how horse and ox harnesses differ, and way more than anyone should know about the medevil era just listening to those things.

Patricia Terry's Renard translation is excellent for two reasons - first, it is a taken from the original Old French version, written around 1175 A.D. The original stories were filled with sex, violence and profanity. They were also filled with humour, gut-wrenching drama, and so far ahead of their time, you'd think they'd just been written last week.

The second reason Terry is so good, is that she censors nothing. The only problem I have is that she didn't do more. Le Roman de Renart (The Epic of Renart) is huge -something like 23 books or "branches" and 62,000 lines. It's like The Illiad or The Odyssy. Terry gives you parts of four branches (all good ones).

Renard is truly great literature. It was not only popular for centuries, but was very influential. I'll have to get back to you on how much it was (and still is).

Its not a thing i'd suggest reading, but I'd really like to get a copy of the Berenstein bears from my own time line before I just died and had to deal with the alternate Bearenstain version.

You can turn that off while still having suggestions for spell checking.
