You should pick one up, then.  McCarthy's The Road and Franzen's The Corrections and Donna Tartt's The Secret History (I shopped Goldfinch there but it's kind of a beast) are all really great books.  And anything by Michael Chabon is fantastic.

Children's books always make for great shoop fodder, the juxtaposition of childhood innocence and adult themes reminds us of the touchy balloon clown that makes us wake up screaming and going to therapy well into our mid-thirties.

Don't you people read? The Road is not a suitable subject for a "Child's Early Reader" book, because it's grim and horrific. Same goes for the other titles. That's the joke.
 
2014-03-24 12:28:57 PM  
Well, I have to take some issue with this.  I do think The Road would make an excellent children's book--after all, one of the two main characters is the kid, there's the theme of father/son bonding and adventures, and there's the uplifting ending where the kid shows that he's a real survivor.  But I do think Blood Meridian is slightly inappropriate for children, in that it paints some of the Native Americans in an unfavorable light.

But very nice work, nonetheless!

Obviously true, though I have to say, if we're just limiting the discussion to Cormack McCarthy books, The Road is like a Dr. Suess book compared to Blood Meridian.  As much as it would fark a kid up emotionally to read The Road, any impressionable kid who ever reads Blood Meridian would instantly turn into a sociopath.

I tried TF once and just had it coasting on auto-renew for a while. When I got married and we combined accounts we started questioning each other's spending. When she asked me if TF was worth it, I pulled the auto-renew. I couldn't find anything worth paying for in it. $5 isn't important, but what TF gets you is even less important.

I do it mostly because I like it around here. And since I use adblock I don't mind paying for it. I don't venture into TFD land very often or use the email account. But I figure I'm here everyday for some odd reason so why not?

I didn't get the joke either, so far as the references go.  I didn't think they were photoshops, they were so well done.  Excellent photoshopping, hillbillypharmacist.

(The follows is not directed at hillybillypharmacist)

What I really don't get is the liter hate because some people didn't understand the joke.  How are they (we) taking a dump on their work because we haven't read the source material?  That isn't a commentary on the quality of the work (or the joke) - it just means we haven't read the books in question.  I'm sure there are people out there who think civilization is collapsing if you haven't read all of the Star Wars or Star Trek books or something.  You wanna slap us for not having partaken of media 'X', fine.  Whooptee doodly doo.  Instead of being a dick, you could just take the opportunity to spread info about something you love in a nice way.  You sound like a reddit reader whinging that "Reddit had it first, so you Farkers suck!".  I don't want to even visit there because of those jerkwads, and in a similar way you are poisoning the well with your hipster-like attitude about us unread heathens.

Now that that shiat is out of the way, again - nice work hilbillypharmacist.  If I hadn't been told the artwork was fake, I would have believed the covers were real childrens books.  Well done.

If this isn't what FarkUs is about, I don't know what is.

Maybe begging for money. That's also what FarkUs seems to be about.

...and Boobies. Boobies is what FarkUs is about, or at least, BIE

BIE isn't a thing.
