and I've been reading Sun Tzu's The Art of War a couple times but it's hard to comprehend some times (I have a book which is the Finnish translation of the original text and The Art Of War For Executives in English)

ultimate serial killer book is crime and punishment.
Some personal recommendations: the things they carried by Tim o brien, 10 stories by JD salinger, the metamorphosis by Franz Kafka, Blood Meridian by Cormac McCarthy. shits solid.

Crime and Punishment is not the ultimate serial killer book, wtf? He killed two people - one of whom he did not actually intend to kill. And he killed because of his unwanted circumstances; he needed money and he was driven with desperation to do what he had to do. And he suffers for his crime with his mental and psychological punishment: guilt and a conscience that drives him insane.

It's definitely one of the most profound novels in literature, and you demean it with the title of the "ultimate serial killer" book.

You obviously haven't gotten the higher meaning of this book. Read the book again.

i feel like thats pretty much the ultimate serial killer book. I'd classify most killers as insane, and a book that chronicles a man's degradation to insanity seems like a serial killer book. the ultimate serial killer title isn't demeaning. every book that delves into such psychological problems owes tons to this book. think before you post

*****, think about the term "serial killer." The protagonist kills two fucking people.

Two murders does not equal serial killing.

Smh.

And Dostoyevksy's novel is not about psychological problems. It's whether if man has the justification to play God despite certain, horrid circumstances.

Read the book before you recommend it to someone else.

Choke sucked for me just because I saw the movie before the book. So it was meh.
You've read survivor right? Best Palaniuk book IMO.


Whats some other good books for someone into the Palaniuk dry-dirty humor. And also loved Perks?


Search chuck books on amazon then just check out the section that lists other books people have bought, usually the same raw genre

Lol, you're a fucking idiot if you think a serial killer is someone who's committed two murders, not to mention calling Crime and Punishment the "ultimate serial killer" novel.

Who hasn't written a paper about nihilism? I had to write about that when I was back in high school.

If anything, Dostoyevsky's novel is about existentialism than nihilism.

Fall the fuck back.

And a serial killer is someone who goes on a series of killing sprees - as in more than three.
